  • The Nature of Computation
    The Nature of Computation (English, Hardback) Cristopher Moore, Stephan Mertens

    Why are some problems easy to solve, while others seem nearly impossible? What can we compute with a given amount of time or memory, and what cannot be computed at all? How will quantum physics change the landscape of computation? This book gives a playful and accessible introduction to the deep ideas of theoretical computer science.
