Description:
This book provides a thorough description of hypercomputation. It
covers all attempts at devising conceptual hypermachines and all
new promising computational paradigms that may eventually lead to
the construction of a hypermachine. Readers will gain a deeper
understanding of what computability is, and why the Church-Turing
thesis poses an arbitrary limit to what can be actually computed.
Hypercomputing is a relatively novel idea. However, the book’s
most important features are its description of the various
attempts of hypercomputation, from trial-and-error machines to
the exploration of the human mind, if we treat it as a… more…
