Summary
A Turing machine is a hypothetical machine thought of by mathematician Alan Turing in 1936, which can simulate any computer algorithm. It consists of an infinitely-long tape that acts like the memory in a typical computer, and can perform three basic operations: read the symbol on the square under the head, edit the symbol, and move the tape left or right by one square. A Turing machine is a machine that can be used to perform bit inversion, and is able to perform read-write-move sequences without stopping.

The bombe (UK: /bɒmb/) was an electro-mechanical device used by British cryptologists to help decipher German Enigma-machine-encrypted secret messages during World War II.[1] The US Navy[2] and US Army[3] later produced their own machines to the same functional specification, albeit engineered differently both from each other and from Polish and British bombes.
