If it weren't for Alan Turing, the modern computer would not exist. He invented a code breaking machine during WWII known as the Bombe, which is considered by most to be the first general purpose computer. His paper titled "On Computable Numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungs problem" serves as the foundation for modern computing sciences. While he didn't invent the computer you're reading this list on, without him we wouldn't have modern computers.
The Imitation Game, a glossy new biopic about the British cryptanalyst Alan Turing, features a lot of maths. Characters take advanced maths classes that require them to scribble complicated maths on notebook paper, and then they set their sights on the devilish maths of the Nazi Enigma machine.
