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

However, the 4th edition is plagued with serious typographic errors in the exercises. Several proofs are, in fact, impossible.

John Burgess has a list of corrections on his website, but it is better just to buy the corrected fifth edition. Nov 21, Ben Anv rated it it was amazing Shelves: Assumming little background knowledge, it has been incredibly satisfying to be shown how various computational systems work, and then also to show that they’re equivalent.

Book Review: Computability and Logic

Mar 02, Ilinalta rated it it was ok. Not the best written book. Some of the proofs could have been better formatted so that it was easier to read and understand. The sentences are long winded and aren’t direct enough. Or maybe I’m just very bad at comprehending logic. The turing machine chapters are decent.

The FOL chapters could have done with some rework. Some of the proofs were blocks of text, and within them they would reference certain stages of the proof, but it wasn’t specified which ones, therefore the reader had t Ehh. Some of the proofs were blocks of text, and within them they would reference certain stages of the proof, but it wasn’t specified which ones, therefore the reader had to guess what part A B C was and where it’s subproof started. Jul 14, Adam rated it it was amazing Shelves: Written for an audience with little more background in Math than the absolute basics of Set Theory probably reading the Enderton book on Set Theory is enough prep for this one, and that’s a very light readit casts a great many interesting theorems in Logic and Computability as so many instances of the non-enumerability of the reals.

It’s very interesting to see how much is equivalent to that one fact, but I also can’t help but feel that some of the proofs could benefit from a different persp Written for an audience with little more background in Math than the absolute basics of Set Theory probably reading the Enderton book on Set Theory is enough prep for this one, and that’s a very light readit casts a great many interesting theorems in Logic and Computability as so many instances of the non-enumerability of the reals.

It’s very interesting to see how much is equivalent to that one fact, but I also can’t help but feel that some of the proofs could benefit from a different perspective. In any case, though, it’s good for the novice and even a worthwhile quick read for a more advanced audience who hasn’t seen this exact presentation before. Nov 24, Correy rated it really liked it. You should probably pick up a book on how to effectively, and elegantly, write a proof before reading this.
