Alan Turing in the twenty-first century: normal numbers, randomness, and finite automata

Presented by: 
J Lutz Iowa State University
Date: 
Monday 2nd July 2012 - 09:30 to 10:30
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
We discuss ways in which Turing's then-unpublished ``A Note on Normal Numbers'' foreshadows and can still guide research in our time.

This research was supported in part by NSF Grant 0652569. Part of the work was done while the author was on sabbatical at Caltech and the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge.
