Turing's World

Description: Turing's World provides an introduction to Turing machines, one of the fundamental notions of logic and computer science. The combined text and software package allow the user to design, debug, and run sophisticated Turing Machines in a graphical environment. Key concepts in computability theory are covered such as the Halting problem, the Busy Beaver function, recursive functions, and indecidability. The student is allowed to construct one-way and two-way finite state machines (finite automata) as well as nondeterministic Turing and finite-state machines.

Requirements: Apple Macintosh running System 6.0 or above.
