reflect, apart from minor changes, the lectures as they were delivered. The subject-matter, as the title suggests, is the role of error ~· ·~ in logics, or in the physical implementation of logics-in automata-synthesis. Error is viewed, therefore, not as an extraneous and misdirected or misdirecting accident, but as an essential part of the process under consideration its importance in the synthesis of automata being fully comparable to that of the factor which is normally considered, the… CONTINUE READING
