Below is an image from a website article discussing a Turing machine. It is supposed to represent a Turing machine, but I don't really follow the notation. I assume this is part of Wolfram's book, "New Kind of Science", which I do not have a copy of. I have only ever seen a Turing machine represented as a 5-tuple (partial function that maps (s, x) to (s', x', d).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
