Logicians invented the notion of general computation (Church's lambda calculus, Goedel's general recursive functions), and anybody learning logic simply has to know the fundamentals of computability theory. Author of Computability Theory (Chapman & Hall/CRC. I'll be teaching logic to graduate students in philosophy this coming semester. New book makes link between philosophy and quantum computing . The treatment is thoroughly mathematical and prepares students to branch out in several areas of mathematics related to foundations and computability, such as logic, axiomatic set theory, model theory, recursion theory, and computability. Please submit your Travel Grant application before 1 May 2009. Decisions will be communicated in mid May. Unappreciated aspect of the heritage of Turing. The distinction between internal and external is quite important in logic, mainly because a logical formalism may be unable to express precisely an externally meaningful concept. The science of information was born in the 1930s in the midst of the great discoveries of modern logic. It provides a unique self-contained text for advanced students and researchers in mathematical logic and computer science. In his famous 1937 paper Turing gave a definitive analysis of the notion of computability. Description: About the Author Vesanto Melina, M. Hein, Discrete Structures, Logic, and Computability.
