Recursion, logic and co.

It just occurred to me that hibernation doesn’t preclude my pointing you to some interesting articles, even if i have not explored them in full. So, in a rush:

  • Julian Noble’s small collection of articles includes a nice and colorful introduction to recursion (with examples in C and Forth) and a very interesting discussion of complex numbers and their implementation.
  • Those of you with a soft spot for maths and computer-generated images will have a great time with the recovered Mathematical Imagery website, by the AMS.
  • Via this post on LtU, a very nice article by Philip Wadler exploring logic and logic programming.
  • Could a machine think? is a very fun article revisiting the well known Chinese Room argument against hard AI.

Enjoy!
