Computability and Logic, Paperback / softback Book

Description

Computability and Logic has become a classic because of its accessibility to students without a mathematical background and because it covers not simply the staple topics of an intermediate logic course, such as Godel's incompleteness theorems, but also a large number of optional topics, from Turing's theory of computability to Ramsey's theorem.

This 2007 fifth edition has been thoroughly revised by John Burgess.

Including a selection of exercises, adjusted for this edition, at the end of each chapter, it offers a simpler treatment of the representability of recursive functions, a traditional stumbling block for students on the way to the Godel incompleteness theorems.

This updated edition is also accompanied by a website as well as an instructor's manual.
