  • What is Mathematics: Godel's Theorem and Around (K. Podnieks)

    This accessible book gives a new, detailed and elementary explanation of the Godel incompleteness theorems and presents the Chaitin results and their relation to the da Costa-Doria results, which are given in full, but with no technicalities.

  • Mathematics in the Age of the Turing Machine (Thomas C. Hales)

    Computers have rapidly become so pervasive in mathematics that future generations may look back to this day as a golden dawn. The article gives a survey of mathematical proofs that rely on computer calculations and formal proofs.

  • Computability, Unsolvability, Randomness (Stephen G. Simpson)

    The author exposits Turing's 1936 theory of computability and unsolvability, as subsequently developed by Kleene and Post. This theory is of the essence in theoretical computer science and in the study of unsolvable mathematical problems.

  • Computability and Randomness (Andre Nies)

    The complexity and the randomness aspect of a set of natural numbers are closely related. This book includes a detailed treatment of Turing's theory of computability and unsolvability as subsequently developed by Kleene, Post, Friedberg, etc.

  • Exploring Randomness (Gregory J. Chaitin)

    This book presents the technical core of the theory of program-size complexity. LISP is used to present the key algorithms and to enable computer users to interact with the authors proofs and discover for themselves how they work.

  • Computability Theory: Introduction to Recursion Theory

    Computability Theory originated with the seminal work of Gödel, Church, Turing, Kleene and Post in the 1930s. These texts provide concise, comprehensive, and authoritative introduction to contemporary computability theory, techniques, and results.

  • Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy (Bertrand Russell)

    Requiring neither prior knowledge of mathematics nor aptitude for mathematical symbolism, the book serves as essential reading for anyone interested in the intersection of mathematics and logic and in the development of analytic philosophy.

  • Introduction to Mathematical Logic (Vilnis Detlovs, et al)

    This book explores the principal topics of mathematical logic. It covers propositional logic, first-order logic, first-order number theory, axiomatic set theory, and the theory of computability. Discusses the major results of Gödel, Church, Kleene, Rosser, and Turing.

  • A Friendly Introduction to Mathematical Logic (Chris Leary)

    In this user-friendly book, readers with no previous study in the field are introduced to the basics of model theory, proof theory, and computability theory, leading to rigorous proofs of Gödel's First and Second Incompleteness Theorems.
