Busy beaver This infinite sequence Σ is the busy beaver function, and any "n"-state 2-symbol Turing machine "M" for which "σ"("M") = Σ("n") (i.e., which attains the maximum score) is called a busy beaver. Note that for each "n", there exist at least four "n"-state busy beavers (because, given any "n"-state busy beaver, another is obtained by merely changing the shift direction in a halting transition, another by shifting all direction changes to their opposite (with neutrals kept neutral), and the final by shifting the halt direction of the all-swapped busy beaver).

In cases where more than one busy hour occurs in a 24-hour period, "i.e.," when saturation occurs, the busy hour or hours most applicable to the particular situation are used.
