In 1945, mathematician John von Neumann, with the aid of J. Presper
Eckert and John Mauchly, wrote a memo proposing the creation of an
Electronic Discrete Variable Automatic Computer, more famously known
as the EDVAC. In this paper, von Neumann suggested the stored-program
model of computing. In the von Neumann architecture, a program is a
sequence of instructions stored sequentially in the computer’s memory.
The program’s instructions are executed one after the other in a linear,
