#### Church's Thesis After 70 Years

De Gruyter 2006; US$ 224.00Church's Thesis (CT) was first published by Alonzo Church in 1935. CT is a proposition that identifies two notions: an intuitive notion of a effectively computable function defined in natural numbers with the notion of a recursive function. Despite of the many efforts of prominent scientists, Church's Thesis has never been falsified. There... more...

#### Lectures on Computational Fluid Dynamics, Mathematical Physics and Linear Algebra

World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 44.00This book, an outgrowth of the author's distinguished lecture series in Japan in 1995, identifies and describes current results and issues in certain areas of computational fluid dynamics, mathematical physics, and linear algebra. Notable among these are the author's new notion of numerical rotational release for the understanding of correct... more...

#### Mathematical Models and Methods of Localized Interaction Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 110.00The interaction of the environment with a moving body is called “localized” if it has been found or assumed that the force or/and thermal influence of the environment on each body surface point is independent and can be determined by the local geometrical and kinematical characteristics of this point as well as by the parameters of the... more...

#### Logic, Construction, Computation

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 238.00Over the last few decades the interest of logicians and mathematicians in constructive and computational aspects of their subjects has been steadily growing, and researchers from disparate areas realized that they can benefit enormously from the mutual exchange of techniques concerned with those aspects.
