Wechseln zu: Navigation Suche Alonzo Church 14. Juni in Washington D.C. 11. August in Hudson Ohio ) war ein US-amerikanischer Mathematiker , Logiker und Philosoph und einer der Begr¼nder der theoretischen Informatik Er studierte an der Princeton University und schloss dort mit dem Doktorgrad ab. 1929 wurde er dort Professor f¼r Mathematik. Bei seinen mathematisch-logischen Fachkollegen bekannt geworden ist er f¼r seine Entwicklung des Lambda-Kalk¼ls , zu dem er 1936 einen Bericht schrieb, in dem er demonstrierte, dass es unentscheidbare Probleme gibt (d.h. die Antwort auf eine Fragestellung ist nicht mathematisch berechenbar ). Dieses Resultat regte seinen Studenten Alan Turing zu œberlegungen zum Halteproblem an, das auch unentscheidbar ist. Church und Turing fanden dann heraus, dass der Lambda-Kalk¼l und die Turingmaschine ebenb¼rtig in der Ausdruckskraft sind und konnten noch einige weitere ¤quivalente Mechanismen zum Berechnen von Funktionen angeben. Eine hieraus abgeleitete These f¼r den intuitiven Berechenbarkeitsbegriff ist unter dem Namen Church-Turing-These bekannt.

Alonzo Church
born June 14, 1903, Washington, D.C., U.S.
died Aug. 11, 1995, Hudson, Ohio
U.S. mathematician. He earned a Ph.D. from Princeton University. His contributions to number theory and the theories of algorithms and computability laid the foundations of computer science. The rule known as Church's theorem or Church's thesis (proposed independently by Alan M. Turing ) states that only recursive functions can be calculated mechanically and implies that arithmetic procedures cannot be used to decide the consistency of statements formulated in accordance with the laws of arithmetic. He wrote the standard textbook Introduction to Mathematical Logic (1956) and helped found the Journal of Symbolic Logic, which he edited until 1979. document.writeln(AAMB2); More on "Alonzo Church" from the 32 Volume Church's thesis - a principle formulated by the 20th-century American logician Alonzo Church, stating that the recursive functions are the only functions that can be mechanically calculated.

Bertrand Russell's Ontological Development
"It was Frege and Russell, not Wittgenstein or Quine, who began what may be called the ontology of the analytic tradition." Jan Dejnožka - The ontology of the analytic tradition and its origins - p. 149 INTRODUCTION "Russell, in Principles of Mathematics, may seem to be a radical relativist. I quote this text again: Numbers cannot be asserted of objects, because the same set of objects may have different numbers assigned to them...; for example, one army is so many regiments and such another number of soldiers. This view seems to me to involve too physical a view of objects: I do not consider the army to be the same object as the regiments. (Principles of Mathematics [POM] 519). Alternatively, in that every application of a concept `presupposes numerical diversity', in that every entity has its own immediate identity, Principles suggests a radical realism. The one thing Principles seems to not to be is modified realism, since Russell expressly denies the distinction between real distinction and conceptual distinction (POM 466). But this denial seems quite disingenuous in light of his own distinction between empirical (or actual) existence and mathematical (or logical) existence. Surely the truth is that Principles indulges in a rich and complex modified realism. Spatial, temporal, and material points are kinds of terms which differ only immediately. (...)

    Alonzo Church was born on June 14, 1903 in Washington, D.C. and died Friday, August 11, 1995 in Hudson, Ohio at the age of 92. He was buried in Princeton Cemetery. Church was professor of mathematics at Princeton University from 1929 to 1967 when he became professor of mathematics and philosophy at UCLA. His work has been greatly influential in the fields of mathematical logic, recursion theory, and theoretical computer science. At the time of his death, Church was widely regarded as the greatest living logician in the world. His most well-remembered contributions are the following:
    • Church's Theorem (1936), showing that arithmetic is undecidable. Church's Thesis, conjecturing that effective computation is equivalent to the notion of a "recursive" function. The Lambda Calculus

    The Church-Turing Thesis
    First published Wed Jan 8, 1997; substantive revision Mon Aug 19, 2002 There are various equivalent formulations of the Church-Turing thesis. A common one is that every effective computation can be carried out by a Turing machine. The Church-Turing thesis is often misunderstood, particularly in recent writing in the philosophy of mind.
    The Thesis and its History
    The Church-Turing thesis concerns the notion of an effective or mechanical
  • M is set out in terms of a finite number of exact instructions (each instruction being expressed by means of a finite number of symbols); M will, if carried out without error, produce the desired result in a finite number of steps; M can (in practice or in principle) be carried out by a human being unaided by any machinery save paper and pencil; M demands no insight or ingenuity on the part of the human being carrying it out.

    Philosophical paper by alonzo church.
    The Need for Abstract Entities
    Alonzo Church Published in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences Proceedings 80 (1951): pp. 100-113. We distinguish between a logistic system and a formalized language on the basis that the former is an abstractly formulated calculus for which no interpretation is fixed, and thus has a syntax and no semantics; but the latter is a logistic system together with an assignment of meanings to its expressions. As primitive basis of a logistic system it suffices to give, in a familiar fashion:
  • The list of primitive symbols or vocabulary of the system (together usually with a classification of the primitive symbols into categories, which will be used in stating the formation rules and rules of inference).
  • The formation rules , determining which finite sequences of primitive symbols are to be well-formed expressions, determining certain categories of well-formed expressions among which we shall assume that at least the category of sentence is included and determining (in case variables are included among the primitive symbols) which occurences of variables in a well-formed expression are free occurences and which are bound occurences.
