In this mathematical autobiography, Gregory Chaitin presents a technical survey of his work and a non-technical discussion of its significance. The technical survey contains many new results, including a detailed discussion of LISP program size.
Data compression is useful in some situations because 'compressed data' will save time (in reading and on transmission) and space if compared to the unencoded information it represent. In this book, we describe the decompressor first.
