**Introduction to Precise Numerical Methods, Second Edition**Now that powerful PCs and Macs are everywhere available, when solving a numerical problem, we should no longer be content with an indefinite answer, that is, an answer where the error bound is either unknown or a vague guess. This book’s software allows you to obtain your numerical answers to a prescribed number of correct decimal places. For... | | **Computability: Turing, Gödel, Church, and Beyond**
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... | | **Unconventional Computation: 7th International Conference, UC 2008, Vienna, Austria, August 25-28, 2008, Proceedings**This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Unconventional Computation, UC 2008, held in Vienna, Austria, in August 2008.
The 16 revised full papers presented together with 4 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the book. The papers are devoted to all aspects of... |
