A logical approach to discrete math by David Gries( Book )

29 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text attempts to change the way logic and discrete math are taught in computer science and mathematics. While many books treat logic simply as another topic of study, this book's uniqueness is its willingness to take it one step further. In the book, logic is treated as a basic tool, to be applied in essentially every other area. "This is a rather extraordinary book, and deserves to be read by everyone involved in computer science and - perhaps more importantly - software engineering. I recommend it highly. The book will be of value not only to beginning students, but also to hardened programmers with many years of experience - in Fortran, Cobol, C, C++, or whatever. If the book is taken seriously, the rigor that it unfolds and the clarity of its concepts could have a significant impact on the way in which software is conceived and developed."--Peter G. Neumann

Beauty is our business : a birthday salute to Edsger W. Dijkstra by W. H. J Feijen( )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than anything else, this book is a tribute to Edsger W. Dijkstra, on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday, by just a few of those fortunate enough to be influenced by him and his work and to be called his friend or relation, his master, colleague, or pupil. This book contains fifty-four technical contributions in different areas of endeavor, although many of them deal with an area of particular concern to Dijkstra: programming. Each contribution is relatively short and could be digested in one sitting. Together, they form a nice cross section of the discipline of programming at the beginning of the nineties. While many know of Dijkstra's technical contributions, they may not be aware of his ultimate goal, the mastery of complexity in mathematics and computing science. He has forcefully argued that beauty and elegance are essential to this mastery. The title of this book, chosen to reflect his ultimate goal, comes from a sentence in an article of his on some beautiful arguments using mathematical induction: " ... when we recognize the battle against chaos, mess, and unmastered complexity as one of computing sci- ence's major callings, we must admit that 'Beauty Is Our Business'."
An introduction to Kolmogorov complexity and its applications by Ming Li( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by two experts in the field, this book is ideal for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers in computer science, mathematics, cognitive sciences, philosophy, artificial intelligence, statistics, and physics. It is self-contained in that it contains the basic requirements from mathematics and computer science. Included are also numerous problem sets, comments, source references, and hints to solutions of problems, as well as a great deal of new material not included in the first edition

Elements of computation theory by Arindama Singh( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Computer Science progressively matures as an established discipline, it becomes increasingly important to revisit its theoretical foundations, learn the appropriate techniques for answering theory-based questions, and build one's confidence in implementing this knowledge when building computer applications. Students well-grounded in theory and abstract models of computation can excel in computing's many application arenas. Through a deft interplay of rigor and intuitive motivation, Elements of Computation Theory comprehensively, yet flexibly provides students with the grounding they need in computation theory. The book is self-contained and introduces the fundamental concepts, models, techniques, and results that form the basic paradigms of computing. Readers will benefit from the discussion of the ideas and mathematics that computer scientists use to model, to debate, and to predict the behavior of algorithms and computation. Previous learning about set theory and proof by induction are helpful prerequisites. Topics and features: • Contains an extensive use of definitions, proofs, exercises, problems, and other pedagogical aids • Supplies a summary, bibliographical remarks, and additional (progressively challenging) problems in each chapter, as well as an appendix containing hints and answers to selected problems • Reviews mathematical preliminaries such as set theory, relations, graphs, trees, functions, cardinality, Cantor's diagonalization, induction, and the pigeon-hole principle • Explores regular languages, covering the mechanisms for representing languages, the closure properties of such languages, the existence of other languages, and other structural properties • Investigates the class of context-free languages, including context-free grammars, Pushdown automata, their equivalence, closure properties, and existence of non-context-free languages • Discusses the true nature of general algorithms, introducing unrestricted grammars, Turing machines, and their equivalence • Examines which tasks can be achieved by algorithms and which tasks can't, covering issues of decision problems in regular languages, context-free languages, and computably enumerable languages • Provides a concise account of both space and time complexity, explaining the main techniques of log space reduction, polynomial time reduction, and simulations • Promotes students' confidence via interactive learning and motivational, yet informal dialogue • Emphasizes intuitive aspects and their realization with rigorous formalization Undergraduate students of computer science, engineering, and mathematics will find this core textbook ideally suited for courses on the theory of computation, automata theory, formal languages, and computational models. Computing professionals and other scientists will also benefit from the work's accessibility, plethora of learning aids, and motivated exposition. Dr. Arindama Singh is a professor at the Department of Mathematics of the Indian Institute of Technology Madras and has authored books on logic for computer science
