Jack Lutz to Contribute to Turing Centenary Volume

October 4, 2010

Professor Jack Lutz has agreed to contribute to the book Alan Turing: His Work and Impact. This book will be a compilation of many of Turing's most important papers, accompanied by commentaries from present-day scientists. The book is planned for release in late 2011, in time for the 2012 centenary of Turing's birth. 

Alan Turing (1912-1954) was the primary founder of the theory of computation. He is also famous for leading the breaking of the Nazi Enigma code, his work on the design of early computers, his early writings on artificial intelligence, and deep work in mathematical logic, probability theory, and mathematical biology.
