The church-turing thesis makes a bold claim about the theoretical limits to computation it is based upon independent analyses of the general notion of an effective procedure proposed by alan turing and alonzo church in the 1930''s.

Hypercomputation is a relatively new theory of computation that is about computing methods and devices that transcend the so-called church-turing thesis this book will provide a thorough description of the field of hypercomputation covering all attempts at devising conceptual hypermachines and all new promising computational paradigms that may eventually lead to the construction of a. The church-turing thesis asserts that the informal notion of calculability is completely captured by the formal notion of recursive functions and hence, in theory, replicable by a machine. No single thesis was ever written, and no joint works by church and turing, rather, the church-turing thesis refers to the acceptance of this idea, that the act of computation can, itself be formalized.

This question is about the extended church-turing thesis, we refer you to the description of acm special interest group on algorithms and computation theory. The extended church-turing thesis is a foundational principle in computer science it asserts that any rea- sonable model of computation can be efﬁciently simulated o n a standard model such as a turing machine. The church-turing thesis makes a bold claim about the theoretical limits to computation it is based upon independent analyses of the general notion of an effective procedure proposed by alan turing and alonzo church in the 1930's as originally construed, the thesis applied only to the number. This course gives an introduction to the mathematical foundations of computation the course will look at turing machines, universal computation, the church-turing thesis, the halting problem and general undecidability, rice's theorem, the recursion theorem, efficient computation models, time and.
The efficient church-turing thesis (first stated, as far as i know, by wolfram in the 80s) is a (probabilistic) turing machine can efficiently simulate any realistic model of computation the analogous conjecture for quantum computers is a quantum turing machine can efficiently simulate any realistic model of computation. Defenders of strong versions of computationalism (which amounts to pretty much the same thing as strong ai) often invoke the twin concepts of computation itself and of the church-turing thesis to imply that computationalism is not only obviously true, but has been shown to be so by way of mathematical proof.

I'd like to quote from nielsen & chuang, quantum computation and quantum information, 10th anniversary edition, page 5 (emphasis mine): one class of challenges to the strong church-turing th. Church-turing thesis, is, roughly, that all \reasonable models of computation are equivalent 4 turing goes on to specify several models for discrete computation and to prove. A more mathematically-oriented definition with a similar universal nature was introduced by alonzo church, whose work on lambda calculus intertwined with turing's in a formal theory of computation known as the church-turing thesis.
Computability theory: study of models of computation (turing, church, kleene), recursive function theory, properties of recursive, and recursively innumerable sets prerequisite: cs 311 (computational structures. Theory of computation project the relevance of category theory to cs the church-turing thesis and the equivalence or non-equivalence of various computational. The church-turing thesis (formerly commonly known simply as church's thesis) says that any real-world computation can be translated into an equivalent computation involving a turing machine in church's original formulation (church 1935, 1936), the thesis says that real-world calculation can be done. Formal models of computation: finite automata and turing machines universality theorem and the church-turing thesis computability theory (what can or cannot be computed) and complexity theory (how efficient can a certain computation be.
