Descripción del producto


From the reviews:

"This is a wonderful book, which does deliver what it promises; and that is no small feat. … One of the things that I like in the book is its sense of fun. … It is beautifully written and contains a very nice survey of an area that deserves to be better known to mathematicians. … Finally, the book is beautifully produced, abundantly illustrated … . I recommend it to everyone interested in any aspect of Turing’s legacy … ." (S.C. Coutinho, The Mathematical Gazette, Vol. 89 (516), 2005)

"This remarkable volume is the serendipitous result of Christof Teuscher realizing in September 2001 that Turing would have celebrated his 90th birthday on June 23, 2002. … This book is the definitive collection of commemorative essays, and the distinguished contributors have expertise in such diverse fields as artificial intelligence, natural computing, mathematics, physics, cryptography, cognitive studies, philosophy and anthropology. The volume spans the entire rich spectrum of Turing’s life, research work and legacy." (Cryptologia, Vol. 29 (1), 2005)

"It is difficult to find the superlatives to describe the wonderful job the contributors to this book have done. Every chapter is written in an expository fashion, demanding very little in the way of background knowledge from any scientifically minded reader. The range of topics is also impressive … . I unreservedly recommend this book to anyone even slightly interested in the continuing role of Turing’s work in the development of computer science in particular, and ideas in general." (John L. Casti, nature, Issue 428, 2004)

Reseña del editor

Written by a distinguished cast of contributors, Alan Turing: Life and Legacy of a Great Thinker is the definitive collection of essays in commemoration of the 90th birthday of Alan Turing. This fascinating text covers the rich facets of his life, thoughts, and legacy, but also sheds some light on the future of computing science with a chapter contributed by visionary Ray Kurzweil, winner of the 1999 National Medal of Technology. Further, important contributions come from the philosopher Daniel Dennett, the Turing biographer Andrew Hodges, and from the distinguished logician Martin Davis, who provides a first critical essay on an emerging and controversial field termed "hypercomputation".
