Computability and Complexity: From a Programming Perspective (Foundations of Computing)
Computability and Complexity: From a Programming Perspective (Foundations of Computing)
Computability and complexity theory should be of central concern to practitioners as well as theorists. Unfortunately, however, the field is known for its impenetrability. Neil Jones's goal as an educator and author is to build a bridge between computability and complexity theory and other areas of computer science, especially programming. In a...
Generative Art
Generative Art
As a young man, this career shift wasn’t entirely motivated by a need to restore the right-left hemisphere balance to my young brain; it may also have had something to do with the worry that knowing a lot about Alan Turing and C++ was probably not the best way to get a girlfriend.

My studies of early 1990s ideas

Super-Recursive Algorithms (Monographs in Computer Science)
Super-Recursive Algorithms (Monographs in Computer Science)
This book introduces the new realm of superrecursive algorithms and the development of mathematical models for them. Although many still believe that only recursive algorithms exist and that only some of them are realizable, there are many situations in which people actually work with superrecursive algorithms....
The Geek Atlas: 128 Places Where Science and Technology Come Alive
The Geek Atlas: 128 Places Where Science and Technology Come Alive
The history of science is all around us, if you know where to look. With this unique traveler's guide, you'll learn about 128 destinations around the world where discoveries in science, mathematics, or technology occurred or is happening now. Travel to Munich to see the world's largest science museum, watch Foucault's pendulum swinging in Paris,...
The Turing Test and the Frame Problem: Ai's Mistaken Understanding of Intelligence
The Turing Test and the Frame Problem: Ai's Mistaken Understanding of Intelligence
Part of what it means to be a researcher is to identify what appears to be a relationship that others either have not noticed or have not fully appreciated. Both the Turing test and the frame problem have been significant items of discussion for more than 20 years in the philosophy of artificial intelligence and the philosophy of mind, but there...
Introduction to Precise Numerical Methods, Second Edition
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
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...

Unix Unleashed/Book and CD
Unix Unleashed/Book and CD
Given life by Turing Award winning Bell Labs computer scientist Ken Thompson at Murray Hill, N.J., in August 1969, UNIX spent its early years as a research curiosity. When I met up with Unix in the summer of '82, however, it already possessed the one characteristic that destined it to dominate a major chunk of the world's market for operating...
Essentials of Programming Languages, 3rd Edition
Essentials of Programming Languages, 3rd Edition

This book brings you face-to-face with the most fundamental idea in computer programming:

The interpreter for a computer language is just another program. It sounds obvious, doesn’t it? But the implications are profound. If you are a computational theorist, the interpreter idea recalls Gödel’s discovery of

Logic of Analog and Digital Machines
Logic of Analog and Digital Machines
Computer Science is a very young discipline compared to most others. Alan Turing published the seminal paper of the field in 1936. Around the same time, the militaries in Germany, UK, and US commissioned the first digital electronic computer projects. One of these, the Colossus at Bletchley Park in the UK, was used to break the...
Towards a Unified Modeling and Knowledge-Representation based on Lattice Theory: Computational Intelligence and Soft Computing Applications
Towards a Unified Modeling and Knowledge-Representation based on Lattice Theory: Computational Intelligence and Soft Computing Applications
By ‘model’ we mean a mathematical description of a world aspect. With the proliferation of computers a variety of modeling paradigms emerged under computational intelligence and soft computing. An advancing technology is currently fragmented due, as well, to the need to cope with different types of data in different application domains....
