Book Description
This book gives a consolidated overview of the research results achieved in the Automata Theory, logics, and infinite games during the past 10 years. Special emphasis is placed on coherent style, complete coverage of all relevant topics, motivation, examples, justification of constructions, and exercises.
Mathematical logic and automata theory are two scientific disciplines with a fundamentally close relationship. The authors of Logic and Automata take the occasion of the sixtieth birthday of Wolfgang Thomas to present a tour d’horizon of automata theory and logic. The twenty papers in this volume cover many different facets of logic and automata theory, emphasizing the connections to other disciplines such as games, algorithms, and semigroup theory, as well as discussing current challenges in the field.

Automata Theory: An Algorithmic Approach (Javier Esparza, et al)
This textbook presents Automata Theory from a fresh viewpoint inspired by its main modern application, program verification, where automata are viewed as data structures for the algorithmic manipulation of sets and relations.

A Friendly Introduction to Mathematical Logic (Chris Leary)
In this userfriendly 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.

Sets, Logic, Computation: An Open Introduction to Metalogic
It covers naive set theory, firstorder logic, sequent calculus and natural deduction, the completeness, compactness, and LöwenheimSkolem theorems, Turing machines, and the undecidability of the halting problem and of firstorder logic.

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.

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.

Incompleteness and Computability: Gödel's Theorems
This book is an introduction to metamathematics and Gödel's Theorems. It covers recursive function theory, arithmetization of syntax, the first and second incompleteness theorem, models of arithmetic, secondorder logic, and the lambda calculus.

An Introduction to Gödel’s Theorems (Peter Smith)
The formal explanations are interwoven with discussions of the wider significance of the two Gödel's Theorems. It will be of equal interest to mathematics students taking a first course in mathematical logic.

What is Mathematics: Godel's Theorem and Around (K. Podnieks)
This accessible book gives a new, detailed and elementary explanation of the Gödel's Incompleteness Theorems and presents the Chaitin results and their relation to the da CostaDoria results, which are given in full, but with no technicalities.

Gödel Without (Too Many) Tears (Peter Smith)
How is this remarkable result of Gödel's Theorems established? This short book explains. The aim is to make the Theorems available, clearly and accessibly, even to those with a quite limited formal background.

Introduction to Mathematical Logic (Vilnis Detlovs, et al)
This book explores the principal topics of mathematical logic. It covers propositional logic, firstorder logic, firstorder number theory, axiomatic set theory, and the theory of computability. Discusses the major results of Gödel, Church, Kleene, Rosser, and Turing.

Introduction to Theory of Computation (Anil Maheshwari, et al)
This is a textbook on formal languages, automata theory, and computational complexity. This text strikes a good balance between rigor and an intuitive approach to computer theory.
