First Edition, Offprint Issue. “Shepherdson was a British mathematician who worked in ring theory and mathematical logic . . . His interest in recursive functions led to many other papers on the topic, in particular his joint paper with Howard Sturgis entitled “Computability of recursive functions” (1963). This paper contained an idea similar to a Turing machine, now known as the Shepherdson-Sturgis Register machine. In many ways this is easier to work with than a Turing machine and has proved an important idea” (MacTutor). “John Shepherdson - Biography.” Maths History (web). Accessed 22 Dec. 2023.
