Description:

"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…
