I was curious if my monograph Bounded Queries in Recursion Theory
was still available so I went to amazon.com and typed in
It had 40 hits. (Move over Stephen King!)
I have only written one book, so how is this possible.
Here are some of the hits.
Bounded Queries in Recursion Theory by
Gasarch and Martin. This hit makes sense.
Handbook of Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics
I have a 4-page chapter on computability.
Does this hit make sense?
If I say NO then I have to say say how long a book
chapter has to be before it makes sense to have
a hit. So I'll say YES.
The Complexity Theory Companion by Hemaspaandra and
Ogiwara. I was acknowledged in the acknowledgments.
Is this hit deserved? NO!
(I got quite a few more of these types of hits, some
for proceedings where one article acknolwedged me.)
An Introduction to Quantum Computing
This book is in the same series as my Bounded Queries
books, so the back of the book has a list of all the
books in this series. Hence I got a hit. This is nuts!
amazon needs to fix its search engines to be LESS good.
