Turing continued to deeply miss Christopher Morcom and the intellectual intimacy they had shared. While he made acquaintances and apparently had his first brief sexual affair with a fellow student named James Atkins, he did not become emotionally involved. Mathematical Hurdles The 1930s were important years for science and mathematics at Cambridge. D. in 1926 from Cambridge, going on to become a Fellow the following year and Lucasian Professor in mathematics in 1931. Shortly after the German physicist Werner Heisenberg (1901– 76) introduced quantum mechanics at the University of Göttingen, Dirac began work in this exciting new field.

On the other hand, Turing loved running, especially by himself and over long distances. He was good—naturally gifted in fact—at this intensely individual sport. He had found himself not only winning in school and interschool competitions at Sherborne, but also, to his surprise, winning respect and applause from his schoolmates who had once picked on him. Socially, though, the first couple of years were painful, difficult, and lonely for Turing. He did develop feelings for Kenneth Harrison, a fellow science student who reminded him in many ways of Christopher Morcom.

Finally, though, the navy did agree to buy the Enigma after some new security features were added for military use. Germany also bought the Enigma for use in diplomacy, as well as in other branches of government. A Fiendishly Complicated Machine In its simplest form, a cipher is a system where a message (called plaintext) is turned into a coded message (or ciphertext) by substituting a different letter for each letter in the message.
