Book cover: Models of Computation: Exploring the Power of ComputingModels of Computation: Exploring the Power of Computing
by - Addison-Wesley ,
The book re-examines computer science, giving priority to resource tradeoffs and complexity classifications over the structure of machines and their relationships to languages. This viewpoint is motivated by more realistic computational models.

Book cover: Bayesian Computational MethodsBayesian Computational Methods
by - arXiv ,
We will first present the most standard computational challenges met in Bayesian Statistics, focusing primarily on mixture estimation and on model choice issues, and then relate these problems with computational solutions.

Book cover: Rule-based Computation and DeductionRule-based Computation and Deduction
by - ESSLLI ,
This text first introduces the concept of rewriting which is behind rule-based systems. Then the rewriting logic and the rewriting calculus are defined and shown to be especially suited to describing concurrent and non-deterministic computations.

Book cover: Logic and ProofLogic and Proof
by - University of Cambridge ,
These lecture notes give a brief introduction to logic, with including the resolution method of theorem-proving and its relation to the programming language Prolog. Formal logic is used for specifying and verifying computer systems.

Book cover: Introduction to Computing: Explorations in Language, Logic, and MachinesIntroduction to Computing: Explorations in Language, Logic, and Machines
by - University of Virginia ,
An introduction to the most important ideas in computing. It focuses on how to describe information processes by defining procedures, how to analyze the costs required to carry out a procedure, and the limits of what can be computed mechanically.

Book cover: An Introduction to the Theory of ComputationAn Introduction to the Theory of Computation
by - Computer Science Pr ,
The book explores questions and terminologies concerning programs, computers, and computation. The exploration reduces to a study of mathematical theories, such as those of automata and formal languages, theories interesting in their own right.
