Om Information

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 Gödel's incompleteness theorem, using an information-theoretic approach based on the size of computer programs, was discussed. The present book is intended as a companion volume to the monograph and it will serve as a stimulus for work on complexity, randomness and unpredictability, in physics and biology as well as in metamathematics.Contents: Introductory/Tutorial/Survey PapersApplications to MetamathematicsApplications to BiologyTechnical Papers on Self-Delimiting ProgramsTechnical Papers on Blank-Endmarker ProgramsTechnical Papers on Turing MachinesReadership: Computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists and philosophers.Key Features:A concise textbook providing material contained in several other monographsA book written by a world-renowned authorUnique approach to certain topics, such as coherence, quantum and classical effects, nonlinear interactions and a macroscopic model combining nonlinear susceptibilities, amongst others
