Hypercomputation Book

Εικόνα
I am really happy to announce that my book on Hypercomputation has been published by Springer. Hypercomputation is a new discipline that emerged from the ascertainment that the Church-Turing Thesis (CTT) cannot be possible true. Roughly, the CTT is about what can be computed with any real or conceptual computing device. In particular, if some function is computable, then it is definitely computable by a Turing mchine, that is, Turing's archetypal conceptual computing device. Hypercomputation, asserts that functions and numbers that cannot be computed by a Turing machine, can be computed by other more powerful computing devices. The description of such machines and their computational power is the subject of this book. In particular, the book describes the various approaches to hypercomputation in nine chapters
