Example text

To begin with, we have suggested that we can enumerate the Turing-computable functions of one argument by enumerating the Turing machines, and that we can enumerate the Turing machines using their quadruple representations. As we turn to details, it will be convenient to modify the quadruple representation used so far somewhat. To indicate the nature of the modifications, consider the machine in Figure 3-9 in the preceding chapter. Its quadruple representation would be We have already been taking the lowest-numbered state ql to be the initial state.

2 Example (Doubling the number of strokes). The machine starts off scanning the leftmost of a block of strokes on an otherwise blank tape, and winds up scanning the leftmost of a block of twice that many strokes on an otherwise blank tape. The flow chart is shown in Figure 3-5. Figure 3-5. Doubling the number of strokes. How does it work? In general, by writing double strokes at the left and erasing single strokes at the right. In particular, suppose the initial configuration is 1111, so that we start in state 1, scanning the leftmost of a block of three strokes on an otherwise blank tape.

Being in one state or another might be a matter of having one or another cog of a certain gear uppermost, or of having the voltage at a certain terminal inside the machine at one or another of m different levels, or what have you: we are not concerned with the mechanics or the electronics of the matter. Perhaps the simplest way to picture the thing is quite crudely: inside the box there is a little man, who does all the reading and writing and erasing and moving. ) This operator inside the machine has a list of m instructions written down on a piece of paper and is in state qi when carrying out instruction number i.
