This text is consisting of two parts, Classical Computability Theory and Generalized Computability Theory. We assume that the reader is familiar with the standard vocabulary of logic and set theory, but no advanced background from logic is required.

Programming experiments designed to help learning of discrete mathematics, logic, and computability. Most of the experiments are short and to the point, just like traditional homework problems, so that they reflect the daily classroom work.
by Neil D. Jones - The MIT Press
The author builds a bridge between computability and complexity theory and other areas of computer science. Jones uses concepts familiar from programming languages to make computability and complexity more accessible to computer scientists.
This book is intended as an introductory textbook in Computability Theory and Complexity Theory, with an emphasis on Formal Languages. Its target audience is CS and Math students with some background in programming and data structures.
