  • The LIMITS of MATHEMATICS
    The LIMITS of MATHEMATICS (English, Paperback) Gregory J. Chaitin

    As a teenager, Greg created independently of Kolmogorov and Solomonoff, what we call today algorithmic information theory, a sub- ject of which he is the main architect. My favorite portrait of Greg can be found in John Horgan's-a writer for Scientific American-1996 book The End 01 Science. Ladies and Gentlemen, Greg Chaitin!

  • Goedel's Way
    Goedel's Way (English, Paperback) Gregory J. Chaitin, Francisco A. Doria

    Kurt Gödel (1906-1978) was an Austrian-American mathematician, who is best known for his incompleteness theorems. He was the greatest mathematical logician of the 20th century, with his contributions extending to Einstein's general relativity, as he proved that Einstein's theory allows for time machines....

  • Proving Darwin
    Proving Darwin (English, Hardback) Gregory J. Chaitin

    Groundbreaking mathematician Gregory Chaitin gives us the first book to posit that we can prove how Darwin’s theory of evolution works on a mathematical level. For years it has been received wisdom among most scientists that, just as Darwin claimed, all of the Earth’s life-forms evolved by blind chance. But does Darwin’s theory function on a purely mathematical level? Has there been enough time...

  • Information, Randomness & Incompleteness: Papers On Algorithmic Information Theory (English, Paperback) Gregory J. Chaitin

    The papers gathered in this book were published over a period of more than twenty years in widely scattered journals. They led to the discovery of randomness in arithmetic which was presented in the recently published monograph on "Algorithmic Information Theory" by the author. There the strongest possible version of Godel's incompleteness theorem, using an information-theoretic approach based on...
