Contents
Physical machines and their abstract counterparts -- Part 1: Finite-state machines -- Neural networks. Automata made up of parts -- The memories of events in finite-state machines -- Part 2: Infinite machines -- Computability, effective procedures, and algorithms. Infinite machines -- Turing machines -- Universal turing machines -- Limitations of effective computability: some problems not solvable by instruction-obeying machines -- The computable real numbers -- The relations between turing machines and recursive functions -- Models similar to digital computers -- Part 3: Symbol-manipulation systems and computability -- The symbol-manipulation systems of post -- Post's normal-form theorem -- Very simple bases for computability -- Solutions to selected problems
