    (Tue May 6 14:36:32 1997) Johnny, as it seems everyone called him, was one of those people who are so bright it's hard to believe they were human. (Maybe he wasn't. There's an old joke about the Fermi Paradox, a problem which occured to Enrico Fermi one day at Los Alamos: where are They? If there are intelligent aliens out there in the universe, why aren't they here yet? A million years is nothing, as the universe reckons things, but, judging from our own track-record, a species only that much older than us would have technology which would blow our minds, pretty close to limits set by physical laws. Leo Szilard is supposed to have answered Fermi: ``Maybe they're already here, and you just call them Hungarians.'') About the only large current of the natural sciences in this century which von Neumann's work has not added to is molecular biology. Almost everything else of any signficance he touched: mathematical logic ; pure math ; quantum physics computing (which, as we know it, is largely his invention), cybernetics and automata theory; the

    Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1903. After simultaneously earning a doctorate in mathematics from the University of Budapest and a doctorate in chemistry from the University of Zurich, he joined the faculty of the University of Berlin in 1927. He moved to Princeton in 1932 where he became the youngest member of the IAS . During this time, he made important contributions not only to pure and applied mathematics, but also to physics and, in some ways, philosophy (esp. in relation to the quantum paradox). He was also active in the Manhattan Project (the development of the atomic bomb) and was one of President Truman's advisors on the Atomic Energy Commission. His later work on parallel processes and networks has earned him the label of the "father of the modern computer". As Nicholas Kaldor would later write, "He was unquestionably the nearest thing to a genius I have ever encountered." An astoundingly creative mathematician, John von Neumann has played a rather important role in post-war economic theory through two essential pieces of work: his 1937 paper on a multi-sectoral growth model and his 1944 book (with Oskar Morgenstern ) on game theory and uncertainty John von Neumann's famous 1937 paper, initially written under the auspices of the famous

    We can all think clearly, more or less, some of the time, but von Neumann's clarity of thought was orders of magnitude greater than that of most of us, all the time. For von Neumann it seemed to be impossible to be unclear in thought or in expression.
    (Paul Halmos) Keeping up with him was all but impossible. The feeling was you were on a tricycle chasing a racing car.
    (Israel Halperin) Father of game theory. Mathematical contributions to set theory, ergodic theory, operator theory. Contributions to quantum mechanics, logic, war, computing theory and practice, economics. A modern legend.
    Von Neumann was the oldest of 3 children of a banker, and his speed of learning new ideas and of solving problems stood out early. At 6, he could divide two 8-digit numbers in his head; by 8 he had mastered calculus; by 12 he was at the graduate level in mathematics. He could memorize pages on sight. At 17, his father tried to convince him to become something more financially practical than a mathematician, and von Neumann agreed to study chemistry as well. He arranged to study chemistry in Berlin and then Zurich and mathematics in Budapest. In 1926, at 23, he received a degree in chemical engineering in Zurich and a Ph.D. in mathematics in Budapest. From the start, mathematics provided well enough for him, and he never had to resort to the chemistry. For the next 3 years, von Neumann worked mainly in the new field of operator theory in mathematics and on applying it to the new field of quantum theory in physics. His first book, published in 1932, was on quantum mechanics. In 1930, von Neumann visited Princeton for a year and then became a professor there. In 1933, the

    John von Neumann
    As a result of these techniques and several others, computing and programming became faster, more flexible, and more efficient, with the instructions in subroutines performing far more computational work. Frequently used subroutines did not have to be reprogrammed for each new problem but could be kept intact in "libraries" and read into memory when needed. Thus, much of a given program could be assembled from the subroutine library. The all-purpose computer memory became the assembly place in which parts of a long computation were stored, worked on piecewise, and assembled to form the final results. The computer control served as an errand runner for the overall process. As soon as the advantages of these techniques became clear, the techniques became standard practice. The first generation of modern programmed electronic computers to take advantage of these improvements appeared in 1947. This group included computers using random access memory (RAM), which is a memory designed to give almost constant access to any particular piece of information. These machines had punched-card or punched-tape input and output devices and RAMs of 1,000-word. Physically, they were much more compact than ENIAC: some were about the size of a grand piano and required 2,500 small electron tubes, far fewer than required by the earlier machines. The first- generation stored-program computers required considerable maintenance, attained perhaps 70% to 80% reliable operation, and were used for 8 to 12 years. Typically, they were programmed directly in machine language, although by the mid-1950s progress had been made in several aspects of advanced programming. This group of machines included EDVAC and UNIVAC, the first commercially available computers.

    John von Neumann
    Perhaps the greatest mathematician of his time, John von Neumann (1903-1957) had a photographic memory and a superhuman ability to perform mental calculations. Von Neumann's security clearance allowed him access to ENIAC and EDVAC, the first large-scale digital computers developed in the United States. You can find a biography of von Neumann at The History of Computing , hosted by Virginia Tech and partially sponsored by a National Science Foundation grant. His 1945 paper, "First Draft of a Report on the EDVAC" is reprinted in Nancy Stern's book From ENIAC to UNIVAC: An Appraisal of the Eckert Mauchly Computers (Digital Press, 1981). For information about the exciting early days of computing, look at the years 1945 - 1952 on the Computer Museum's Historic Timeline .

    is the symbol of the warrior. This rune most represents masculine force and potency, and frequently victory in battle. Beware though, for this rune represents directly the Norse god whose name it bears - Tyr stands out in legend for having sacrificed his hand that he might bind Fenrir, a monstrous wolf that threatens to swallow the world. As such, this rune is known to portend a great victory that can be bought with a terrible sacrifice. Tyr is also the god of law, frequently placed in such position above Odin. In this aspect, protection of justice may be had by this rune.

    John Louis von Neumann
    John von Neumann dilahirkan di Budapest, Hongaria, 28 Desember 1903. Meninggal 8 Februari 1957 di Washington DC, USA. Von Neumann seorang ahli matematik dan komputer. Salah satu karyanya adalah arsitektur komputer yang disebut "von Neumann machine", dimana program disimpan di memori. Arsitektur komputer inilah yang digunakan oleh komputer modern sampai sekarang. Von Neumann sangat cerdas dengan matematik dan angka-angka. Pada usia enam tahun dia sudah dapat menghitung pembagian angka dengan delapan digit tanpa menggunakan kertas atau alat bantu lainnya, di luar kepala. Pendidikannya dimulai di University of Budapest di tahun 1921 di jurusan Kimia. Tapi kemudian dia kembali kepada kesukaannya, matematik, dan menyelesaikan doktoralnya di bidang matematik di tahun 1928. Di tahun 1930 dia mendapat kesempatan pergi ke Princeton University (USA). Pada tahun 1933, Institute of Advanced Studies dibentuk dan dia menjadi salah satu dari enam profesor matematik di sana. Von Neumann kemudian menjadi warga negara Amerika. Hubungan Von Neumann dengan komputer dimulai dengan Harvard Mark I (ASCC) calculator yang dikembangkan oleh Howard Aiken. Kemudian setelah itu dia menggunakan ENIAC. Penggunaan komputer pada masa itu lebih difokuskan kepada masalah pertahanan negara, bom nuklir, Manhattan Project, di Los Alamos. Di sana kontribusi von Neumann sangat berarti.

During 1936 through 1938 Alan Turing was a graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at Princeton and did his dissertation under Alonzo Church. Von Neumann invited Turing to stay on at the Institute as his assistant but he preferred to return to Cambridge; a year later Turing was involved in war work at Bletchley Park. This visit occurred shortly after Turing's publication of his 1934 paper "On Computable Numbers with an Application to the Entscheidungs-problem" which involved the concepts of logical design and the universal machine. It must be concluded that von Neumann knew of Turing's ideas, though whether he applied them to the design of the IAS Machine ten years later is questionable.
