There’s a problem loading this menu right now. By Chapter 5, the text mainly deals with general sets of programs, which gets rid of most of the overt URMishness.

An Introduction to Recursive Function Theory

It omits major topics, such as the arithmetic hierarchy. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Get to Know Us. In fact, I’ve started reading the Hartley Rogers text on Wed 24Jul13, while keeping the Cutland on hand during that read. I read this book 12Jun to 30Jul Please try again later.

An Introduction to Recursion Theory. At that point, this becomes a math text on the theory of computing using no particular model of computation.

Many of those uses are in proofs of theorems, the worst place for them.

Theory of Computability

However, it looses some of its best qualities about halfway through the book. Buy the selected items together This item: I think it is very suitable for those who do want to learn something about some basic principle of computer science.

On aj opposite end of the theorry, this is a passable but mediocre reference book for recursion theory. Best for self-learning or text book for undergraduates or graduate students. Theory and Applications Theory and Applications of Computability. You can look up the same topics in Rogers or Odifreddi to get an idea of the interesting things that could have been said. If you are trying to make a first transition over into theory topics from, say, a career of practical recursivee development tasks, then this is the wrong book.

For this reader, Chapter 9 was unremittingly tedious to read, a introdduction theoretical treatment, with no linkage at all to good examples of more concrete ‘reductions’ in earlier chapters.

The later chapters give little feeling for how it all fits together and why we should care. One thing I really appreciate about this textbook thru Chapter 7 is that as one progresses thru the the book, it mostly stays at a steady level of abstraction, not becoming much compytability difficult.

When I first read this book I thought some of the parts elementary, but comparing it to the above text I realized it was doing the job of teaching by giving good illustrations of the processes involved.

It’s a great book if you’ve seen some decidability results, but not a formal mathematical treatment; and if you intend to follow the book and learn what it decides rather than look up specific topics. East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion.


This uniqueness of the URM model also means it is independent of the Chomsky hierarchy of language classes that run on those automata just mentioned. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. The later chapters provide an introduction to more advanced topics such as Gildel’s incompleteness theorem, degrees of unsolvability, the Recursion theorems and the theory of complexity of computation.

Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? These decisions will get annoying if you plan to read bits and pieces rather than learn in sequence according to the author’s presentation.
