"The fact remains that everyone who taps at a keyboard, opening a spreadsheet or a word-processing program, is working on an incarnation of a Turing machine."  - Time This new and exciting book, scheduled to publish for the 2012 centenary of Alan Turing's birth in London, includes a large number of the most significant contributions from the 4-volume set of the Collected Works of A. M. Turing.  These contributions, together with a wide spectrum of accompanying commentaries from current world-leading experts in many different fields and backgrounds, provide insight on the significance and contemporary impact of A.M. Turing's work. Offering a more modern perspective than anything currently available, this unique work gives wide coverage of the many ways in which Turing's scientific endeavours have impacted current research and understanding of the world. It provides a great service to researchers, and at the same time is an approachable entry-point for the large number of people who have limited training in the science, but would like to learn more about the details of Turing's work. Affordable, key collection of the most significant papers by A.M. Turing. Commentary explaining the significance of each seminal paper by preeminent leaders in the field. Additional resources available online.
