Bradley, Manna. The Calculus of Computation, Springer, 2007

We wrote this book with an undergraduate and beginning graduate audience in mind. Content The book has two parts. The methods are general.

Part II trades generality for decidability and e ciency. Chapters 1 and 2 begin our presentation with a review of propositional and predicate logic.

Much of the material will be familiar to the reader who previously studied logic.

This text by Professor Zohar Manna at Stanford is one of my favorites, even though I'm not a computer scientist or even a modern programmer. I've read all of Chapters 1 on Computability, 2 on Predicate Logic, and 4 on Flowchart Schemas since last Aug , all reasonably comprehensible to me and massively interesting for their own sake.

Very interesting Chapter 1 covered regular expressions and finite automata in Section and then Turing machines in several of their aspects in Sections thru , with good additions of some of the important work of Post.

Manna's titles for the sections about the Turing machine are interesting and somewhat mysterious: Those section titles strongly piqued my interest. In section Manna in examples developed a whole zoo of interesting primitive recursive functions, one of my several favorite things in this book. I think Chapter 2 on first-order logic, a specialty of mine, was generally well done, and at the start of Section Section on Natural Deduction showed the various sets of introduction and elimination rules for that style of deduction very well, but Manna's many example proofs in that section were not in that natural deduction style.

Section on the important resolution procedure was thorough, but it became very abstract near the end, i.

Chapter 4 on Flowchart Schemas was a great look at this theoretical way of considering computation in general. Many kinds of schemata and their decision procedures were discussed thru Section Then Section on Formalization in Predicate Calculus rolled a lot of the methods of Section into formalizing flowchart schemas. Difficult, but very interesting to read.

Section on Translation Problems was a highly difficult discussion of flowchart schema programs vs. Chapter 5 on The Fixpoint Theory of Programs looks fascinating, but that chapter is more difficult than I am willing to try reading. Omitted Chapter 3 on Verification of Programs via flowcharts was the most heavily applied chapter and looked rather tedious to read, so therefore I skipped it.

For those interested, at end of each chapter are very many problems to work. Unfortunately, Dover took this reprinting of 'Mathematical Theory of Computation' out of print sometime in Spring of Partially in observance of Dover's killing of this book, I am rereading sections thru of Chapter 1 on computability in Fall of In late Oct , I finally started rereading Chapter 2 on computational logic.

It is also six years since I read in this book before. Largely out of curiosity, I bought the linked book in Oct and it's quite well done but all of similar difficulty to 'no go' chapter 5 of the presently reviewed book. More relevant, in Zohar Manna and Aaron Bradley co-authored a book called 'The Calculus of Computation' containing a lot of subjects in computational logic, several types of induction, new ways of program verification without the flow charts of the presently reviewed book, along with several other computational subjects.

A rather recommended newer book partially by Zohar Manna. Mysteriously, Amazon can't get me an embedded link for this book that I bought two copies of from them!Deals and Shenanigans.
