Computability theory originated with the seminal work of gödel, church, turing, kleene and post in the 1930s this theory includes a wide spectrum of topics, such as the theory of reducibilities and their degree structures, computably enumerable sets and their automorphisms, and subrecursive.

In recent years it has been convincingly argued that the church-turing thesis concerns the bounds of human computability: the thesis was presented and justified as formally delineating the class of functions that can be computed by a human carrying out an algorithm thus the thesis needs to be.
