Computation is the act of determining (working out) something by processing information. It involves using specific rules, either mathematical or logical. It may or may not involve using numbers; the computation of numbers and arithmetic is generally called calculation.[1] The study of computation is called computer science.

The theory of computation involves determining whether a certain problem can be solved by computation.
