Cinderella Book




<publication> "Introduction to Automata Theory, Languages, and Computation", by John Hopcroft and Jeffrey Ullman, (Addison-Wesley, 1979).

So called because the cover depicts a girl (putatively Cinderella) sitting in front of a Rube Goldberg device and holding a rope coming out of it.

On the back cover, the device is in shambles after she has (inevitably) pulled on the rope.
