Computer generated image by Hector Zenil “Visualising the Computational Universe: Runtime Space in a Peano Curve” winner of the 2011 Kroto Scientific Image Award. It shows the calculation of the distribution of runtimes from simulating (4n+2)^(4n)=10000 Turing machines with 2 symbols and n=2 states (of a total of more than 10^12 simulated Turing machines with up to n=4 states) following a quasi-lexicographical order in a Peano curve preserving–as far as possible–the distance between 2 machines arranged in a 2-dimensional array from a 1-dimensional enumeration of Turing machines.
