...index number of the Turing machine it is investigating and, second, the input which is going to be fed to the target machine. T then outputs 1 or 0 depending on whether the target machine halts or not. That is, T(n,m) = 1 if Turing machine number n halts with input m and T(n,m) = 0 otherwise. Now, it can be easily shown that there is a Turing machine, call this one S, which generates an output of 1 when given input 0, and which responds to an input of 1 by simply filling its tape endlessly with 1s (that is, S fails to halt if it gets input (1). It can also...

...parabolas ( p 3 = l 2 d and p 4 = l 3 d ). Despite its merits this work was overshadowed by the other early work, Arithmetica infinitorum ( 1655 ), which was the result of his introduction to Cavalieri's infinitesimal methods in his reading of Torricelli's Opera geometrica ( 1644 ). His aim was to find a quadrature of the circle, which he proposed to solve by finding the area of one quadrant of a circle of unit radius, thus finding the value of π/4. Wallis's task, then, was essentially to integrate (1 – x 2 ) 1/2 between x = 0 and x = 1. To begin...
