Turing in the Notices of the AMS

The November issue of the Notices of the AMS is entirely devoted to Alan Turing. (I first learned about this issue via Luca Trevisan's blog in theory.) I have only had time to skip through Solomon Feferman's piece on Turing's thesis (his PhD thesis, not the Church-Turing thesis), but the whole issue looks very interesting.

I have already recommended it to the students who are taking my theory of computation course in Reykjavík.

Enjoy it!
