zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.
py: 2000-2015 cc: (94A | 11T) Number ranges are accepted. Terms can be grouped within (parentheses).
la: chinese Find documents in a given language. ISO 639-1 language codes can also be used.

The book presents recent results in algorithmic information theory. It contains the following chapters: 1. The complexity of sets; 2. The descriptive complexity of strings; 3. Martin-Löf randomness and invariants; 4. Diagonally noncomputable functions; 5. Lowness properties and K-triviality; 6. Some advanced computability theory; 7. Randomness and betting strategies; 8. Classes of computational complexity; 9. Higher computability and randomness. The book includes many exercises (some with solutions).

Written by a researcher who contributed with significant results to the field, the treatment is mathematical rigourous, with many open problems, and an up-dated list of references. The book is suited for advanced courses and research.
