PUMP-HOUSE is the Laundry codename for the École Supérieure de Mathématiques Appliquées (ESMA), the Higher School of Applied Mathematics, where French mathematicians rediscovered the Turing Theorem in the early 1970s. Coincidentally, PUMP-HOUSE was also the codename of a Laundry operation that ran from the mid-1950s through the late 1970s which was intended to prevent this eventuality.
