Turing machine

A Turing machine is a hypothetical device that manipulates symbols on a strip of tape according to a table of rules. Despite its simplicity, a Turing machine can be adapted to simulate the logic of any computer algorithm, and is particularly useful in explaining the functions of a CPU inside a computer. The “Turing” machine was invented in 1936 by Alan Turing who called it an “a-machine” (automatic machine).
