It’s not a very in-depth introduction. This result was surprising, and the proof is a fun one. You can tell a book by its cover. Explore the Home Gift Guide. The errata page is also located there and there are plenty of errata to be found in this logi, unfortunately!

Computabiilty is No Paradox of Logical Validity. I grew up with earlier editions of this book and now teach from it. Want to Read saving….

Rajeev Shrivastava rated it it was amazing Jan 13, Jeffrey, Computability and Logic. Chapter 18 in particular is quite relevant to some of MIRI’s recent work, and is good to know in the LessWrong circles. Ben Pace rated it really liked it Aug 26, And this one tells it all.


Computability and Logic

If anyone else is thinking of reading the course list, Computability and Logic is a great place to start. A Mathematical Introduction to Logic. The FOL chapters could have done with some rework. For example, it constructs the loguc problem from a diagonalization of an encoding of Turing machine instructions.

This book is not on the MIRI course list. If you’re interested in computation or logic, this book introduces some of the coolest results in both fields in a very approachable way. It’s very interesting to see how much is equivalent to that one fact, but ,ogic also can’t help but feel that some of the proofs could benefit from a different perspective.

Preview — Computability and Logic by George S. Cambridge University Press; 5 edition September 17, Language: This is the climax of the book.

However, this book doesn’t just tell you that result, it shows it to you. Andrew rated it it was amazing Apr 22, Again, this would have been good preliminaries for Model Ancin which compactness is proved about a paragraph. Even if you know that the deduction problem is equivalent to the halting problem, it’s illuminating to play directly with an encoding of Turing machines as logical theories.

As a minor note, this textbook had way more computabiltiy than any other textbook I’ve read.

The chapter then discusses formal systems of arithmetic. Diagonalization stops the buck. It’s a good book overall however the content is not exactly easy. No trivia or quizzes yet. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. This may all seem a bit abstract, especially following all the computationally-motivated content above.
