Item description for People and Ideas in Theoretical Computer Science (Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science) by Cristian S. Calude...

Theory and theoreticians have played a major role in computer science. Many insights into the nature of efficient computations were gained and theory was crucial for some of the most celebrated engineering triumphs of computer science (e.g., in compiler design, databases, multitask operating systems, to name just a few). Theoretical computer science (TCS) functions as a communication bridge between computer science and other subjects, notably, mathematics, linguistics, biology; it is a champion in developing unconventional models of computation (DNA, quantum). This book collects personal accounts and reflections of fourteen eminent scientists who have dedicated themselves to the craft of TCS. Contributions focus on authors specific interests, experiences, and reminiscences. The emerging picture, which is just one among other possible ones, should be a catalyst for further developments and continuations. Was most interested to learn about the project, which should be a worthwhile one." N. Chomsky, MIT.
"The human story of creativity is inspiring and documents a very noble activity - the creation of knowledge in its most beautiful and useful form - the creation of a science. Supplying the technical and intellectual tools to probe some of the most fascinating questions about the nature of thought and intelligence, theoretical computer science is trying to grasp the limits of rational thought, the limits of knowable. This book will contribute to the understanding of the creation of a magnificent science." J. Hartmanis, NSF.
"This is obviously an extremely worthwhile project." D. E. Knuth, Stanford University.
