The current Lecture Notes advanced from a path given on the Technische Hogeschool Eindhoven and later on the Technische Hogeschool Twente. they're meant for machine technology scholars; extra particularly, their target is to introduce the notions of computability and decidability, and to arrange for the learn of automata idea, formal language conception and the speculation of computing. with the exception of a basic mathematical heritage no initial wisdom is presupposed, yet a few adventure in programming can be beneficial. whereas classical treatises on computability and decidability are orientated in the direction of the basis of arithmetic or mathematical common sense, the current notes try and relate the topic to laptop technological know-how. consequently, the reveal relies at the use of strings instead of on that of usual numbers; the notations are just like these in use in automata thought; moreover, based on a standard utilization in formal language thought, many of the proofs of computability are decreased to the semi-formal description of a approach the constructivity of that's obvious to anyone having a few programming adventure. even though those evidence the topic is handled with mathematical rigor; a number of casual reviews are inserted so one can permit an exceptional intuitive figuring out. i'm indebted to all those that drew my awareness to a couple blunders and ambiguities in a initial model of those Notes. i need additionally to thank omit L.A. Krukerink for her diligence in typing the manuscript.

Example text

Less formally, a function is computable if there exists a Turing machine defining it. A totaZ computabZe function is defined similarly. 7. The thesis of Turing Turing emitted the following thesis: each function for which there exists a "rule" (or: "constructive procedure") to compute its value is a computable function (~). Note that this thesis cannot be proved because it connects a mathematical notion (viz. the Turing machine) to an empirical notion (viz. the "rule"). Hence it bears similarities with a thesis (or: "law") asserting that a certain mathematical equation is applicable to a physical phenomenon.

Per definition the relation * a==->B T between the ID's a and B holds if either a B or there exists a finite s~quence of ID's (n > 1) such that and If T is understood one may also write instead of * a7 B. Interpreted on the physical model the relation ~ represents the consecutive execution of a certain number (possibly zero) elementary steps. (*) The relation ~ constitutes the reflexive transitive closure of the relation ~. 5. The functions defined --------------------The n-ary function fT defined by the -V-Turing machine ,n T = (y, ~, I, B, qs) is the n-ary y-string function f T,n- { (xI' x 2 ' q E ~ ...

When the Turing machine halts, the contents of the tape from which the occurrences of the symbol B are deleted is the value of the function for the given arguments; if the Turing machine does not halt, the value of the function for the given arguments is undefined. A Turing machine T defines an infinity of functions, namely fT I ' , • It should be clear that a particular Turing machine is generally designed in order to define one of these functions; the other functions are then not considered and are, moreover, often trivial.
