Steve Kleene was one of the pioneers of 20th century mathematics.
In 1990 Kleene was awarded the President's National Medal of Science, the country's highest scientific honor, for his leadership in the theory of recursion and effective computability and for developing it into a deep and broad field of mathematical research.

Kleene and his fellow student Barkley Rosser studied it with care, and presently found that it led to a contradiction.
Kleene combined those ideas with notes of von Neumann on automata to produce a RAND report that has been very influential in the study of automata.

Stephen Cole Kleene (January 5, 1909 - January 25, 1994) wasan American mathematician whose work at the University of Wisconsin - Madison helped lay the foundations for theoretical computer science.
Byproviding methods of determining which problems are solvable, Kleene's work led to the study of which functions are computable.
He was an instructor of navigation at the U.S. Naval Reserve's Midshipmen's School in New York, and then a project director at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. In 1946, he returned to Wisconsin,becoming a full professor in 1948.

Kleene's research was on the theory of algorithms and recursive functions.
Kleene's formulation of computable function via six schemata is one of the most succinct and useful, and his previous work on lambda functions played a major role in supporting Church's Thesis that these classes coincide with the intuitively calculable functions.
Kleene developed a diverse array of topics in computability: the arithmetical hierarchy, degrees of computability, computable ordinals and hyperarithmetic theory, finite automata and regular sets with enormous consequences for computer science, computability on higher types, recursive realizability for intuitionistic arithmetic with consequences for philosphy and for program correctness in computer science.

Much of Kleene's subsequent work was devoted to the systematic study of this class of recursive (computable) functions, as well represented in his magnificent 1952 book Introduction to Metamathematics and his treatment of the partial recursive functions—those defined recursively, but only for some numbers, hence partial.
(This was a comeback; when Kleene left Wisconsin for Amherst in 1941, the dean of the college had declined to promote him, but he had assured Kleene that he would return.) His wife Nancy died in 1970.
