Computability: Turing, Gödel, Church, and Beyond

Buy

In the 1930s a series of seminal works published by Alan Turing, Kurt Gödel, Alonzo Church, and others established the theoretical basis for computability. This work, advancing precise characterizations of effective, algorithmic computability, was the culmination of intensive investigations into the foundations of mathematics. In the decades since, the theory of computability has moved to the center of discussions in philosophy, computer science, and cognitive science. In this volume, distinguished computer scientists, mathematicians, logicians, and philosophers consider the conceptual foundations of computability in light of our modern understanding. Some chapters focus on the pioneering work by Turing, Gödel, and Church, including the Church-Turing thesis and Gödel's response to Church's and Turing's proposals. Other chapters cover more recent technical developments, including computability over the reals, Gödel's influence on mathematical logic and on recursion theory and the impact of work by Turing and Emil Post on our theoretical understanding of online and interactive computing; and others relate computability and complexity to issues in the philosophy of mind, the philosophy of science, and the philosophy of mathematics.

Selected Papers of Richard Feynman: With Commentary
Selected Papers of Richard Feynman: With Commentary
As its title indicates, this volume contains a selection of Feynman's important scientific papers together with short comments. Most of the papers contain pure research, but among them are scattered some articles that are largely pedagogical, such as published lectures that Feynman gave at advanced physics workshops and summer schools. As the...
Pop Fiction: The Song in Cinema
Pop Fiction: The Song in Cinema
Pop Fiction's unique essays individually consider one song within a cinematic context. Unlike previous collected volumes about pop music in film where a generalised approach has been adopted, it offers instead a close examination of these two most pervasive and significant mediums in contemporary culture. The collection introspects, assembling the...

IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT SIR ISAAC NEWTON was the last person to know everything. He was an accomplished physicist (his three laws of motion were the basis of classical mechanics, which defi ned astrophysics for three centuries), mathematician (he was one of the inventors of calculus and developed Newton’s Method for fi nding...

Test-Driven Development in Microsoft .NET

With the clarity and precision intrinsic to the Test-Driven Development (TDD) process itself, experts James Newkirk, and Alexei Vorontsov demonstrate how to implement TDD principles and practices to drive lean, efficient coding—and better design. The best way to understand TDD is to see it in action, and Newkirk and Vorontsov walk you...
