“The halting problem is a question in computability theory which asks if an algorithm can be found that decides whether a program (a Turning machine) will finish, or run forever, once given a description of such a program and a finite amount of input.”
“Ada Lovelace, Haskell Curry, and Noam Chomsky all worked heavily on the foundations of computation/computability theory, and algorithmic programming.”
“Nicolas Bourbaki, who never existed, is named in the Bourbaki-Witt theorem, used in computability theory and domain theory.”
“A late-nineteenth-century mathematician would be able to understand the idea of Turing computability and a von Neumann architecture with a few days instruction.”
“Creating standards like this allows for better innovation and computability.”
“Not my fields, but I think this discussion could use some input from an expert in information theory and computability.”
“Not all computer science focuses on the run-times of algorithms or the nature of computability.”
“Subsequently, we will discuss the profound consequences that these paradoxes have on a number of different areas: theories of truth, set theory, epistemology, foundations of mathematics, computability.”
“I also identified some severe computability problems it seems no one else has.”
“It is also important to stress that a few years later (1938) an analog of the diagonalization lemma (the so-called second recursion theorem) was discovered by Kleene and was soon to become a basic tool in the foundations of recursion theory and computability theory.”
