)
in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Newman discusses his work at the Bletchley Park Government Code and Cipher School in Britain during World War II. He mentions his teaching position in mathematics at Cambridge University before the war, and his acquaintance there with Alan Turing while he formulated his theory of computability. At Bletchley Park, Newman worked on the decoding of machinegenerated ciphers using the Colossus, an electronic calculator built under the direction of Thomas H. Flowers incorporating design features based on Turing's statistical theory. Newman discusses personal interactions and the operation of the Colossus. He also describes his postwar position at Manchester University, where he worked on the MARK I computer project before returning to teaching
