#### Recursion Theory for Metamathematics

Oxford University Press 1993; US$ 159.99 US$ 137.59This work is a sequel to the author's Gödel's Incompleteness Theorems , though it can be read independently by anyone familiar with Gödel's incompleteness theorem for Peano arithmetic. The book deals mainly with those aspects of recursion theory that have applications to the metamathematics of incompleteness, undecidability, and related topics. ... more...

#### Recursive Functionals

Elsevier Science 1992; US$ 72.95This work is a self-contained elementary exposition of the theory of recursive functionals, that also includes a number of advanced results. Although aiming basically at a theory of higher order computability, attention is restricted to second order functionals, where the arguments are numerical functions and the values, when defined, are natural numbers.... more...

#### Fundamentals of Generalized Recursion Theory

Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 205.00This work presents the most important combinatorial ideas in partition calculus and discusses ordinary partition relations for cardinals without the assumption of the generalized continuum hypothesis. A separate section of the book describes the main partition symbols scattered in the literature. A chapter on the applications of the combinatorial methods... more...

#### Kurt Gödel

Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2007; US$ 25.47Time Magazine reihte ihn unter die hundert wichtigsten Personen des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts. Die Harvard University verlieh ihm das Ehrendoktorat für die Entdeckung "der bedeutsamsten mathematischen Wahrheit des Jahrhunderts". Er gilt allgemein als der größte Logiker seit Aristoteles. Sein Freund Einstein ging, nach eigener Aussage, nur deshalb ans... more...

#### Godel's Proof

Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 20.95'Nagel and Newman accomplish the wondrous task of clarifying the argumentative outline of Kurt Godel's celebrated logic bomb.' ? The Guardian In 1931 the mathematical logician Kurt Godel published a revolutionary paper that challenged certain basic assumptions underpinning mathematics and logic. A colleague of physicist Albert Einstein, his... more...

#### Computability, Enumerability, Unsolvability

Cambridge University Press 1996; US$ 84.00 US$ 68.88Provides a picture of current ideas and methods in the ongoing investigations into the pure mathematical foundations of computability theory. more...

#### E-Recursion, Forcing and C*-Algebras

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 22.00 US$ 18.04This volume presents the lecture notes of short courses given by three leading experts in mathematical logic at the 2012 Asian Initiative for Infinity Logic Summer School . The major topics cover set-theoretic forcing, higher recursion theory, and applications of set theory to C*-algebra. This volume offers a wide spectrum of ideas and techniques introduced... more...

#### Recursion Theory

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 134.73This monograph presents recursion theory from a generalized and largely global point of view. A major theme is the study of the structures of degrees arising from two key notions of reducibility, the Turing degrees and the hyperdegrees, using ideas and techniques beyond those of classical recursion theory. These include structure theory,... more...
