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

Computer Chronology
Everybody comes to this world with ten fingers. Those fingers are the most valuable computers. Can you operate your PC or laptop without your fingers? This lady knows how valuable they are. Some years ago, Chinese invented sophisticated fingers that can deal with numbers greater than ten. This is the Russian variation of the abacus. I obtained this computer while I was in Moscow in 1991. About 150 years ago, French artillery men invented this computer which can perform multiplication by addition. I still use the smaller (pocket sized) slide rule when I go to restaurants with my friends. I have to add 15-percent tip to the total bill (multiply by 1.15) and divide it by the number of people. This is a vacuum-tube circuit. I used to like vacuum tubes when I was a high-school student, and I was able to write an article about Marconi and Sarnoff three months ago. Indeed, in the 1940s, John von Neumann observed those tubes can perform "Yes or No" logic. We all know what happened since then. For the history of electronic computers, you may visit

John von Neumann As a child von Neumann showed he had an incredible memory. Poundstone, in [8], writes:- At the age of six, he was able to exchange jokes with his father in classical Greek. The Neumann family sometimes entertained guests with demonstrations of Johnny's ability to memorise phone books. A guest would select a page and column of the phone book at random. Young Johnny read the column over a few times, then handed the book back to the guest. He could answer any question put to him who has number such and such? or recite names, addresses, and numbers in order. In 1911 von Neumann entered the Lutheran Gymnasium . The school had a strong academic tradition which seemed to count for more than the religious affiliation both in the Neumann's eyes and in those of the school. His mathematics teacher quickly recognised von Neumann's genius and special tuition was put on for him. The school had another outstanding mathematician one year ahead of von Neumann, namely Eugene Wigner In 1921 von Neumann completed his education at the Lutheran Gymnasium. His first mathematics paper, written jointly with Fekete the assistant at the University of Budapest who had been tutoring him, was published in 1922. However Max Neumann did not want his son to take up a subject that would not bring him wealth. Max Neumann asked Theodore von

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.
