Computability, complexity, and languages : fundamentals of theoretical computer science by Martin Davis( Book )

50 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 1,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introductory text covers the key areas of computer science, including recursive function theory, formal languages, and automata. It assumes a minimal background in formal mathematics. The book is divided into five parts: Computability, Grammars and Automata, Logic, Complexity, and Unsolvability. * Computability theory is introduced in a manner that makes maximum use of previous programming experience, including a "universal" program that takes up less than a page. * The number of exercises included has more than tripled. * Automata theory, computational logic, and complexity theory are presented in a flexible manner, and can be covered in a variety of different arrangements
Applied nonstandard analysis by Martin Davis( Book )

36 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geared toward upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, this text explores the applications of nonstandard analysis without assuming any knowledge of mathematical logic. It develops the key techniques of nonstandard analysis at the outset from a single, powerful construction; then, beginning with a nonstandard construction of the real number system, it leads students through a nonstandard treatment of the basic topics of elementary real analysis, topological spaces, and Hilbert space.Important topics include nonstandard treatments of equicontinuity, nonmeasurable sets, and the existence of Haar measure. The focus on compact operators on a Hilbert space includes the Bernstein-Robinson theorem on invariant subspaces, which was first proved with nonstandard methods. Ever mindful of the needs of readers with little background in these subjects, the text offers a straightforward treatment that provides a strong foundation for advanced studies of analysis
The undecidable : basic papers on undecidable propositions, unsolvable problems and computable functions by Martin Davis( Book )

28 editions published between 1955 and 2004 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An anthology of fundamental papers on undecidability and unsolvability, this classic reference opens with Gödel's landmark 1931 paper demonstrating that systems of logic cannot admit proofs of all true assertions of arithmetic. Subsequent papers by Goèdel, Church, Turing, and Post single out the class of recursive functions as computable by finite algorithms. --from publisher description
A first course in functional analysis by Martin Davis( Book )

36 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introduction to functional analysis is based on the lecture notes of Martin Davis, a distinguished professor of mathematics. The treatment demonstrates the essential unity of mathematics without assuming more background than can be expected of advanced undergraduates and graduate students majoring in mathematics.A self-contained exposition of Gelfand's proof of Wiener's theorem, this volume explores set theoretic preliminaries, normed linear spaces and algebras, functions on Banach spaces, homomorphisms on normed linear spaces, and analytic functions into a Banach space. Numerous problems appear throughout the book
From linear operators to computational biology : essays in memory of Jacob T. Schwartz by Martin Davis( )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his rich and varied career as a mathematician, computer scientist, and educator, Jacob T. Schwartz wrote seminal works in analysis, mathematical economics, programming languages, algorithmics, and computational geometry. In this volume of essays, his friends, students, and collaborators at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences present recent results in some of the fields that Schwartz explored: quantum theory, the theory and practice of programming, program correctness and decision procedures, dextrous manipulation in Robotics, motion planning, and genomics
Lectures on modern mathematics by Martin Davis( Book )

10 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Logic for programming, artificial intelligence, and reasoning 20th International Conference, LPAR-20 2015, Suva, Fiji, November 24-28, 2015 : proceedings by LPAR (Conference)( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and German and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book constitutes the proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence, and Reasoning, LPAR-20, held in November 2015, in Suva, Fiji. The 43 regular papers presented together with 1 invited talk included in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 92 submissions. The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning, LPAR, is a forum where, year after year, some of the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning, computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world

Julia Robinson and Hilbert's tenth problem( Visual )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julia Robinson was the first woman elected to the mathematical section of the National Academy of Sciences, and the first woman to become president of the American Mathematical Society. While tracing Robinson's contribution to the solution of Hilbert's tenth problem, the film illuminates how her work led to an unusual friendship between Russian and American colleagues at the height of the Cold War."--Container

Alan M. Turing by Sara Turing( )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'In a short life he accomplished much, and to the roll of great names in the history of his particular studies added his own.' So is described one of the greatest figures of the twentieth century, yet Alan Turing's name was not widely recognised until his contribution to the breaking of the German Enigma code became public in the 1970s. The story of Turing's life fascinates and in the years since his suicide, Turing's reputation has only grown, as his contributions to logic, mathematics, computing, artificial intelligence and computational biology have become better appreciated. To commemorate the centenary of Turing's birth, this republication of his mother's biography is enriched by a new foreword by Martin Davis and a never-before-published memoir by Alan's older brother. The contrast between this memoir and the original biography reveals tensions and sheds new light on Turing's relationship with his family, and on the man himself

One equation to rule them all by Martin Davis( Book )

4 editions published between 1965 and 1968 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report describes an application of recursive function theory to Hilbert's tenth problem. It is proved that if a particular exhibited diophantine equation has no nontrivial solutions, then all recursively enumerable sets are diophantine. Hence, if the exhibited diophantine equation has no nontrivial solutions, then Hilbert's tenth problem is recursively unsolvable. The methods used can be readily adapted to obtained various other hypotheses about which demonstrations can be made similar to the one given in this study. It has not yet been proved that the 'one equation to rule them all' has no nontrivial solution, but so far the search for counterexamples has been fruitless
