Turing, Gödel, Church, and Beyond

In the 1930s a series of seminal works published by Alan Turing, Kurt G?del, Alonzo Church, and others established the theoretical basis for computability. This work, advancing precise characterizations of effective, algorithmic computability, was the culmination of intensive investigations into the foundations of mathematics. In the decades since, the theory of computability has moved to the center of discussions in philosophy, computer science, and cognitive science.
