Computation: Universal Turing Machine

Series
Computation
Description
Model demonstrates Turing's fundamental insight, rule sets encoded as data create versatile, Universal computers. Users familiar with Simple turing machine, the first in this series, will see that model extended to support stored program import and execution. Users can modify rule sets in this model but extensive programming is better done in the Programmable Turing Model in this series.
