Details

First edition, first printing of Neumann's last work on the theory of automata. Published posthumously, the contents of this volume stem from two unfinished manuscripts, edited by Burks, Neumann's colleague on the ENIAC project. Divided into two parts, the work covers complicated automata in general, comparing artificial and natural automata, as well as the logical design of a self-reproducing cellular automaton.
