Book Description

The fundamental ideas concerning computation and recursion naturally find their place at the interface between logic and theoretical computer science. The contributions in this text provide a picture of current ideas and methods in investigations into the structure of the computable and noncomputable universe.

More About the Author

Barry Cooper is Professor of Mathematical Logic at the University of Leeds. A graduate of the University of Oxford, his research follows that of Alan Turing in its focus on the nature of mental and physical computation. Author and editor of numerous books, including Computability Theory, New Computational Paradigms, and Computability in Context, he is a leading advocate of multidisciplinary research at the interface between what is known to be computable, and theoretical and practical incomputability. Chair of the Turing Centenary Committee, which coordinated the international Turing Centenary celebrations, he is President of the Association Computability in Europe, which is responsible for the largest computability-themed international conference series, and chairs the Editorial Board of its Springer book series "Theory and Applications of Computability."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
but sometimes you need a book like Cooper's to immerse yourself in. These are papers from not to long ago. Many of you may not be up to date, so you need to read this book. After this book, see others in this series, to further catch up on computability and related subjects. Also, look for Discrete Math Demystified.
