Theoretical computer science is a division of computer science which focuses on the abstract, mathematical aspects of computing. It includes the study of:

Informally, theoretical computer science was born in 1936 when Alan Turing, Alonzo Church, and Stephen Kleene formally defined algorithms is in terms of computation. In the present day, it deals heavily with quantum computers, which perform mathematical computations on the wavefunction of a particle.
