Abstract
Predmet izučavanja ovog diplomskog rada je životni put i doprinos kriptoanalizi i računalstvu znamenitog britanskog matematičara, kriptografa, logičara i vizionara, te čovjeka osebujnog karaktera i uma, Alana Mathisona Turinga. Nakon uvoda, upoznat ćemo se s Turingovim djetinjstvom, školovanjem i profesionalnom karijerom, kao i kontroverzama vezanim uz njegovu smrt. Zatim će se detaljnije ukazati na njegove najvažnije doprinose u području kriptoanalize i računalstva. Pri tome će se posebno istaknuti Turingova uloga u pobjedi Saveznika u Drugom svjetskom ratu. Na kraju će se pokušati odgovoriti kako se prema Turingu i njegovom radu odnosi suvremeno društvo. Alan M. Turing je po mnogočemu bio ispred svog vremena pa tek počinjemo biti svjesni njegove važnosti za svijet u kojem danas živimo.

The case study of this thesis is Alan Mathison Turing's life and contribution to cryptanalysis and computing. Alan Turing was famous British mathematician, cryptographer, logician and visionary, and a person of a distinctive character and mind. After the introduction, we will explore Turing's childhood, education, and professional career, as well as the controversies related to his death. In the next section, his most important contributions in the field of cryptanalysis and computing will be discussed in detail. Thereby, a particular emphasis will be put on Turing's role in the Allied victory in World War II. In the end, an attempt will be made to answer how the modern society refers to Turing and his work. Alan M. Turing was in many ways ahead of his time, and we are just starting to realise his importance for the world we live in today.
