Article. html n  Decision problem http: //en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Entscheidungsproblem "On Computable Numbers, with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem" (튜링 1936), he proved that there was no solution to the Entscheidungsproblem by first showing that the halting problem for Turing machines is unsolvable: n 즉 어떤 튜링 기계든지 줄때 그 튜링기계가 멈출지 안 멈출지 알려주는 튜링기계는 없다. n ATM = { <M, w> | M is a TM and M accepts w} is Turing recognizable, but Turing undecidable n ATM is undecidable n n n H를 그런 TM(decider)라고 하자. H(<M, w>)=accept if M accepts w, reject if M rejects w. D=“On input <M> 1. Run H on <M, <M>> 2. Reject if H accepts, accept if H rejects D(<M>) = accept if D does not accept <M>, reject if D accepts <M>. D(<D>) =accept if D does not accept <D>, reject if D accept <D>. contradiction   Cellular automata 간단한 룰만 가지고 만들었으나 설명되지 않는 여러가지 행동을 보임 n Conway’s game of life n Wolfram http: //www. stephenwolfram. com/ “A New kind of science” http: //www. wolframscience. com/ n
