A UNIVERSAL TURING MACHINE
A Universal Turing
Machine (UTM) is a logical procedure that can be written in
algorithmic formats. Such an algorithm embodies a universal
procedure that can mime all computable procedures. The operating systems of general computers, includng PC's
and smart phones, may viewed as UTM's. Viewing the code
for a UTM may be likened to viewing a self portrait of the machine displaying it. The version shown here,
based on Fibonacci numbering, was written by Steven Gunhouse to complement Alan Turing's interest in the Fibonacci sequence.
