A brief story of gaps in the infinite time Turing machines

9 May 2017, 3.00 PM - 9 May 2017, 4.30 PM

Dr Sabrina Ouazzani, Laboratoire d’Algorithmique, Complexité et Logique, Paris-Est Creteil, University.

Howard House 4th Floor Seminar Room

I will present a part of my PhD thesis entitled "From algorithmics
to logics through infinite time computation" in which I have studied
the infinite time Turing machines model of computation from a computer
scientist's point of view. In particular I focused on the structure of
gaps in the clockable ordinals, that is to say, ordinal times at which
no infinite time program halts.

So in this talk I will present infinite time Turing machines (ITTM),
from the original definition of the model to some new infinite time
algorithms. These algorithmic techniques will allow to highlight some
properties of the ITTM-computable ordinals and we will see that they
bring some information about the structure of gaps.
