Synopsis About this title The mathematical genius Alan Turing, now well known for his crucial wartime role in breaking the ENIGMA code, was the first to conceive of the fundamental principle of the modern computer-the idea of controlling a computing machine's operations by means of a program of coded instructions, stored in the machine's 'memory'. Product Description : Rare Book Review : Review from previous edition The amount of information collected by the editor is huge and it offers interesting reading for anybody with a deep interest in computer history.

This is the 'stored program' concept, the idea of controlling the function of the computing machine by storing a program of instructions in the machine's memory. The computer was left unfinished in when Atanasoff moved away from Iowa State College. No doubt this is in part explained by the absence of any explicit reference to Turing's work in the series of technical reports in which von Neumann, with various co-authors, set out a logical design for an electronic stored-program digital computer. This is only true if [the automaton] is sufficiently complicated, if it has reached a certain minimal level of complexity. See also Williams, F. See also Croarken, M. Jack Copeland and others.

The first 'personal' computer was based on Turing's ACE. The first detailed history of Turing's contributions to computer science, this text is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of the computer and the history of mathematics.
It contains first hand accounts by Turing and by the pioneers of computing who worked with him. As well as relating the story of the invention of the computer, the book clearly describes the hardware and software of the ACE-including the very first computer programs. The book is intended to be accessible to everyone with an interest in computing, and contains numerous diagrams and illustrations as well as original photographs.
