Yes, this is definitely a model of computation that should be mentioned.
I am familiar with the uses of AST's for specifying models, developing
software, and other _applied_ uses. Has anyone done any work on Abstract
State Machines specifically geared towards computability theory, such as
proving the Recursion Theorem, smn theorem, existence of non-computable
c.e. sets, etc?
