The halting problem is a question in computability theory which asks if an algorithm can be found that decides whether a program (a Turning machine) will finish, or run forever, once given a description of such a program and a finite amount of input.

Ada Lovelace, Haskell Curry, and Noam Chomsky all worked heavily on the foundations of computation/computability theory, and algorithmic programming.
