9780123869807: Alan Turing: His Work and Impact

In this 2013 winner of the prestigious R.R. Hawkins Award from the Association of American Publishers, as well as the 2013 PROSE Awards for Mathematics and Best in Physical Sciences & Mathematics, also from the AAP, readers will find many of the most significant contributions from the four-volume set of the Collected Works of A. M. Turing. These contributions, together with commentaries from current experts in a wide spectrum of fields and backgrounds, provide insight on the significance and contemporary impact of Alan Turing's work.

Offering a more modern perspective than anything currently available, Alan Turing: His Work and Impact gives wide coverage of the many ways in which Turing's scientific endeavors have impacted current research and understanding of the world. His pivotal writings on subjects including computing, artificial intelligence, cryptography, morphogenesis, and more display continued relevance and insight into today's scientific and technological landscape. This collection provides a great service to researchers, but is also an approachable entry point for readers with limited training in the science, but an urge to learn more about the details of Turing's work.

From the Author:

Science is a very personal adventure for so many of us. I started out as a schoolboy like Turing, seeking out a computable world, investing a lot of 'me' into trying to understand how to make the world work better. The mathematics of incomputability became a wonderful game. When I arriving in Manchester as a research student in 1968, I found Turing's only PhD student, Professor Robin Gandy, giving lectures on Turing's work on the emergence of Fibonacci sequences in sunflowers. I was mystified. Now, when so many people are seeking out form beyond form, computation beyond computation, and structure beyond chaos - investigating randomness, human creativity, emergent patterns in nature - we can only wonder that Turing was there before us. So much of what Alan Turing pondered and brought into the light of day - techniques, concepts, speculations - is still valid in our everyday investigations.Turing was a grounded, yet visionary scientist. As well as bringing technical content to the mundane, he brought basic intuition to the technically arcane. This book took us three years to edit, and presents the most significant original works from Turing's collected works - including unpublished works - along with commentary from over 70 renowned scholars, who write about Turing's impact on mathematics, computing, computer science, informatics, morphogenesis, philosophy and the wider world of science. A common theme is that all these writers were influenced by Turing's work. I learned a lot through those long months editing this book with my co-editor Jan, at times working overnight under the pressure of our deadlines. I hope our readers will find their own personal adventure through this large and engrossing book. Maybe it will change the lives of some readers - like Alan Turing changed mine.
