Synopsis

The Incomputable Journeys Beyond the Turing Barrier by S. Barry Cooper

This book questions the relevance of computation to the physical universe. Our theories deliver computational descriptions, but the gaps and discontinuities in our grasp suggest a need for continued discourse between researchers from different disciplines, and this book is unique in its focus on the mathematical theory of incomputability and its relevance for the real world. The core of the book consists of thirteen chapters in five parts on extended models of computation; the search for natural examples of incomputable objects; mind, matter, and computation; the nature of information, complexity, and randomness; and the mathematics of emergence and morphogenesis. This book will be of interest to researchers in the areas of theoretical computer science, mathematical logic, and philosophy.

About the Author

Prof. S. Barry Cooper was a Professor of Pure Mathematics at the University of Leeds. He was the founding President of the Computability in Europe Association, and a prolific author and editor in the domain of computability. He championed Alan Turing's achievements in logic and computer science, and in particular he motivated and organized cross-disciplinary collaborations, among them the events, publications and broadcasts of the Alan Turing Year in 2012.Dr. Mariya I. Soskova is an associate professor in the Dept. of Mathematical Logic and Applications in Sofia University. She was recently a visiting scholar at the University of California, and a visiting seminar professor at the Dept. of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

I love Lovereading because of its ability to connect people that love books & unite them in a friendly, stimulating & interesting community.

Megan Olwen William

Thanks to Lovereading I have discovered new writers and read books I would never had looked twice at - and enjoyed them.

Angela Rhodes

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

Jill Peters

I love the honest opinions, recommendations for every genre and every reader, wish lists and Like for Like.

Amrita Dasgupta

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

Lovereading is pitched at just the right level for all the various types of people who enjoy reading in its many forms.
