This is THE book to learn real recursion theory from It isn t as good a reference as Odefreddi though soare hason the r.e degrees but it actually explains what is happening and offers insight into the subject.This isn t a book for the non mathematician who just wants to know what all this stuff about Turing machines is about This is a full course that takes one from the beginnings of the subject to a point where you are ready to read and produce recent papers I personally wish it h This is THE book to learn real recursion theory from It isn t as good a reference as Odefreddi though soare hason the r.e degrees but it actually explains what is happening and offers insight into the subject.This isn t a book for the non mathematician who just wants to know what all this stuff about Turing machines is about This is a full course that takes one from the beginnings of the subject to a point where you are ready to read and produce recent papers I personally wish it had a little biton forcing constructions and other non re constructions this part is frustratingly short but the book iscoherent and reasonably sized for their omission.The approach taken ismodern than that of Rogers and much preferable Obscure rarely used notions e.g., the Medvedev lattice and repetition of the same material in different contexts is avoided in favor of going throughcomplex constructions and results in the r.e degrees
