Elements of the theory of computation by
Harry R Lewis(
Book
)
42 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lewis and Papadimitriou present this long awaited Second Edition of their bestselling theory of computation. The authors are wellknown for their clear presentation that makes the material accessible to a broad audience and requires no special previous mathematical experience. In this new edition, the authors incorporate a somewhat more informal, friendly writing style to present both classical and contemporary theories of computation. Algorithms, complexity analysis, and algorithmic ideas are introduced informally in Chapter 1, and are pursued throughout the book. Each section is followed by problems

Turing : a novel about computation by
Christos H Papadimitriou(
Book
)
18 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Our hero is Turing, an interactive tutoring program and namesake (or virtual emanation?) of Alan Turing, World War II code breaker and father of computer science. In this unusual novel, Turing's idiosyncratic version of intellectual history from a computational point of view unfolds in tandem with the story of a love affair involving Ethel, a successful computer executive, Alexandros, a melancholy archaeologist, and Ian, a charismatic hacker. After Ethel (who shares her first name with Alan Turing's mother) abandons Alexandros following a sundrenched idyll on Corfu, Turing appears on Alexandros's computer screen to unfurl a tutorial on the history of ideas. He begins with the philosophermathematicians of ancient Greece  "discourse, dialogue, argument, proof ... can only thrive in an egalitarian society"And the Arab scholar in ninthcentury Baghdad who invented algorithms; he moves on to many other topics, including cryptography and artificial intelligence, even economics and developmental biology. (These lessons are later critiqued amusingly and developed further in postings by a fictional newsgroup in the book's afterword.) As Turing's lectures progress, the lives of Alexandros, Ethel, and Ian converge in dramatic fashion, and the story takes us from Corfu to Hong Kong, from Athens to San Francisco  and of course to the Internet, the disruptive technological and social force that emerges as the main locale and protagonist of the novel."

An optimality theory of concurrency control for databases by
H. T Kung(
Book
)
12 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A concurrency control mechanism (or a scheduler) is the component of a database system that safeguards the consistency of the database in the presence of interleaved accesses and update requests. We formally show that the performance of a scheduler, i.e., the amount of parallelism that it supports, depends explicitly upon the amount of information that is available to the scheduler. We point out that most previous work on concurrency control is simply concerned with specific points of the base tradeoff between performance and information. In fact, several of these approaches are shown to be optimal for the amount of information that they use. (Author)

Serializability of concurrent database updates by
Christos H Papadimitriou(
Book
)
5 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A sequence of interleaved user transactions in a database system may not be serializable, i.e., equivalent to some sequential execution of the individual transactions. Using a simple transaction model we show that recognizing the transaction histories which are serializable is an NPcomplete problem. We therefore introduce several efficiently recognizable subclasses of the class of serializable histories; most of these subclasses correspond to serializability principles existing in the literature and used in practice. We also propose two new principles which subsume all previously known ones. We give necessary and sufficient conditions for a class of histories to be the output of an efficient history scheduler; these conditions imply that there can be no efficient scheduler that outputs all of serializable histories, and also that all subclasses of serializable histories studied above have an efficient scheduler. Finally, we show how our results can be extended to far more general transaction models, to transactions with partly interpreted functions, and to distributed database systems. (Author)

Kurt Gödel and the foundations of mathematics : horizons of truth by
Matthias Baaz(
Book
)
4 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This volume commemorates the life, work and foundational views of Kurt Gödel (19061978), most famous for his hallmark works on the completeness of firstorder logic, the incompleteness of number theory, and the consistency  with the other widely accepted axioms of set theory  of the axiom of choice and of the generalized continuum hypothesis. It explores current research, advances and ideas for future directions not only in the foundations of mathematics and logic, but also in the fields of computer science, artificial intelligence, physics, cosmology, philosophy, theology and the history of science. The discussion is supplemented by personal reflections from several scholars who knew Gödel personally, providing some interesting insights into his life. By putting his ideas and life's work into the context of current thinking and perceptions, this book will extend the impact of Gödel's fundamental work in mathematics, logic, philosophy and other disciplines for future generations of researchers
