## What does the Church-Turing thesis state?

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.

## Did Church and Turing work together?

It is an important topic in modern mathematical theory and computer science, particularly associated with the work of Alonzo Church and Alan Turing. The debate and discovery of the meaning of “computation” and “recursion” has been long and contentious.

## What is Church-Turing hypothesis in TOC?

The Church-Turing thesis says that every solvable decision problem can be transformed into an equivalent Turing machine problem.

## Why is the Church-Turing thesis not a theorem?

Thesis not Theorem: because we cannot prove this.. with a counter example we could disprove it (but this has not been done). intuitive – any detailed algorithm for manual calculation can be implemented by a Turing Machine.

## Is the Church-Turing thesis correct?

Because all these different attempts at formalizing the concept of “effective calculability/computability” have yielded equivalent results, it is now generally assumed that the Church–Turing thesis is correct.

## What is the extended Church-Turing thesis?

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 on a standard model such as a Turing Machine or a Random Access Machine or a cellular automaton.

## Why is it called the Turing test?

The Turing Test is a method of inquiry in artificial intelligence (AI) for determining whether or not a computer is capable of thinking like a human being. The test is named after Alan Turing, the founder of the Turing Test and an English computer scientist, cryptanalyst, mathematician and theoretical biologist.

## What if the Church-Turing thesis is wrong?

Namely, if someone built a device which (reliably) computed a function that cannot be computed by any Turing machine, that would disprove the Church-Turing thesis because it would establish existence of an effectively calculable function that is not computable by a Turing machine.

## Do quantum computers disprove the Church-Turing thesis?

Yes, quantum supremacy disproves the extended church-turing thesis (Bernstein-Vazirani). This thesis states that any computation that can be computed efficiently can be computed efficiently with a classical computer (ie a Turing machine).

## Which are the different models of computation?

Models of computation can be classified into three categories: sequential models, functional models, and concurrent models.

## What is Turing-complete programming language?

Turing Complete refers to a machine that, given enough time and memory along with the necessary instructions, can solve any computational problem, no matter how complex. The term is normally used to describe modern programming languages as most of them are Turing Complete (C++, Python, JavaScript, etc.).

## Is the universe a Turing machine?

The Universe Is a Giant Abstract Turing Machine That Doesn’t Need to Be Run. If U() is the set of all possible Turing machine definitions, U(a) is just one of them, one that represents ours. This philosophy is also termed digital physics, and this essay attempts to put the philosophy in layman’s term.

## Is Microsoft Excel Turing complete?

With the addition of custom functions that can call each other and recursively call themselves, Excel’s formula language becomes Turing-complete, effectively meaning that Excel users can compute anything without resorting to another programming language.

## Is Python a Turing complete language?

Java ,Python or C++ are true ‘Turing Complete ‘ examples.

## Is Bitcoin script Turing complete?

Bitcoin scripts currently do not enable loops. Therefore, they are commonly considered to be not Turing Complete. This limits the types of algorithms the Bitcoin scripts can execute to linear or tree-like instructions.

## Is Minecraft Redstone Turing complete?

Minecraft’s resdstone is not a turing complete machine, and by itself cannot construct a turing complete machine – as explained in the video – but redstone is a turing comple language, as in: it can be used to write programs of arbitrary length that can do all that a turing machine can do with program of arbitrary
