Computability Theory: An Introduction to Recursion Theory
Computability Theory: An Introduction to Recursion Theory

The study of the class of computable partial functions (i.e., recursive partial functions) stands at the intersection of three fields: mathematics, theoretical computer science, and philosophy.

Mathematically, computability theory originates from the concept of an algorithm. It leads to a classification of functions according...

Classification Algorithms for Codes and Designs (Algorithms and Computation in Mathematics)
Classification Algorithms for Codes and Designs (Algorithms and Computation in Mathematics)
This book considers one of the basic problems in discrete mathematics: given a collection of constraints, describe up to isomorphism all the objects that meet them. Only a handful of classification results for combinatorial objects are dated before the mid-20th century; indeed, it is through modern computers and recent developments in algorithms...
