  Computability and Logic has become a classic because of its accessibility to students without a mathematical background and because it covers not simply the staple topics of an intermediate logic course, such as Godel's incompleteness theorems, but also a large number of optional topics, from Turing's theory of computability to Ramsey's theorem.5/5(3). This book is a great way to shore up your understanding of some of the most fun proofs in computability theory and in logic. It would make an excellent companion to a computer science curriculum, and a great follow up to Gödel, Escher, Bach by someone hungry for more formalism. Computability and Logic has become a classic because of its accessibility to students without a mathematical background and because it covers not simply the staple topics of an intermediate logic course, such as Godel's incompleteness theorems, but also a large number of optional topics, from Turing's theory of computability to Ramsey's : George S.

The book is a unified introduction to the modern theory of these concepts, to the way in which they developed first in mathematical logic and computability theory and later in automata theory, and to the theory of formal languages and complexity theory.

The result is called second-order logic. Almost all the major theorems we have established for first-order logic fail spectacularly for second-order logic, as is shown in the present short chapter. This chapter and those to follow generally presuppose the material in section   Written for an audience with little more background in Math than the absolute basics of Set Theory (probably reading the Enderton book on Set Theory is enough prep for this one, and that's a very light read), it casts a great many interesting theorems in Logic and Computability as so many instances of the non-enumerability of the reals.4/5.
