**Computability and Complexity from a Programming Perspective**

by Neil D. Jones

**Publisher**: The MIT Press 1997**ISBN/ASIN**: 0262100649**ISBN-13**: 9780262100649**Number of pages**: 485

**Description**:

The author's goal as an educator and author is to build a bridge between computability and complexity theory and other areas of computer science, especially programming. Jones uses concepts familiar from programming languages to make computability and complexity more accessible to computer scientists and more applicable to practical programming problems.
