No other volume provides as broad, as thorough, or as accessible an introduction to the realm of computer science as A. K. Dewdney's The Turing Omnibus.

For everyone from the curious beginner to the working professional, The New Turing Omnibus offers 66 concise, brilliantly written mathematically oriented articles on the major points of interest in computer science theory, technology, and applications. Foundational for this tour: information on algorithms, detecting primes, noncomputable functions, and self-replicating computers--plus fundamental sections on the Mandelbrot set, genetic algorithms, the Newton-Raphson Method, neural networks that learn, DOS systems for personal computers, and computer viruses.
