Computability Theory: An Introduction to Recursion Theory, provides a concise, comprehensive, and authoritative introduction to contemporary computability theory, techniques, and results.

The text includes both the standard material for a first course in computability and more advanced looks at degree structures, forcing, priority methods, and determinacy. The final chapter explores a variety of computability applications to mathematics and science. Computability Theory is an invaluable text, reference, and guide to the direction of current research in the field. Nowhere else will you find the techniques and results of this beautiful and basic subject brought alive in such an approachable way.
