If the machine leaves *n* ones onthe tape when it halts, we will say that the *productivity* ofthis machine is *n*. We will say that the productivity of anymachine that does not halt is 0. Productivity is a function fromTuring machine descriptions (natural numbers) to natural numbers. Wewill write *p(T)=n* to indicate that the productivity ofmachine *T* is *n*.
