Models of Computation, Riemann Hypothesis, and Classical Mathematics

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1521)


Classical mathematics is a source of ideas used by Computer Science since the very first days. Surprisingly, there is still much to be found. Computer scientists, especially, those in Theoretical Computer Science find inspiring ideas both in old notions and results, and in the 20th century mathematics. The latest decades have brought us evidence that computer people will soon study quantum physics and modern biology just to understand what computers are doing.
