e-books in Computability Theory category
by Stephen G. Simpson - The Pennsylvania State University , 2009
I exposit Turing's theory of computability and unsolvability, as subsequently developed by Kleene and Post. Second, I provide an introductory account of a research area which is currently very active: algorithmic randomness and Kolmogorov complexity.

This text is consisting of two parts, Classical Computability Theory and Generalized Computability Theory. We assume that the reader is familiar with the standard vocabulary of logic and set theory, but no advanced background from logic is required.

by Neil D. Jones - The MIT Press , 1997
The author builds a bridge between computability and complexity theory and other areas of computer science. Jones uses concepts familiar from programming languages to make computability and complexity more accessible to computer scientists.

Programming experiments designed to help learning of discrete mathematics, logic, and computability. Most of the experiments are short and to the point, just like traditional homework problems, so that they reflect the daily classroom work.
