Abstract

Any thorough discussion of computing machines requires the examination of rigorous concepts of computation and is facilitated by the distinction between mathematical, symbolical, and physical computations. The delicate connection between the three kinds of computations and the underlying questions “What are machines?” and “When are they computing?” motivate an extensive theoretical and historical discussion.
