Computing: A Concise History (The MIT Press Essential by Paul E. Ceruzzi

By Paul E. Ceruzzi

The heritage of computing may be advised because the tale of and software program, or the tale of the net, or the tale of "smart" hand held units, with subplots related to IBM, Microsoft, Apple, fb, and Twitter. during this concise and obtainable account of the discovery and improvement of electronic expertise, machine historian Paul Ceruzzi bargains a broader and extra necessary point of view. He identifies 4 significant threads that run all through all of computing's technological improvement: digitization--the coding of data, computation, and keep an eye on in binary shape, ones and zeros; the convergence of a number of streams of concepts, units, and machines, yielding greater than the sum in their components; the regular strengthen of digital know-how, as characterised famously by means of "Moore's Law"; and the human-machine interface. Ceruzzi courses us via computing background, telling how a Bell Labs mathematician coined the notice "digital" in 1942 (to describe a high-speed approach to calculating utilized in anti-aircraft devices), and recounting the improvement of the punch card (for use within the 1890 U.S. Census). He describes the ENIAC, outfitted for medical and armed forces purposes; the UNIVAC, the 1st basic objective machine; and ARPANET, the Internet's precursor. Ceruzzi's account lines the world-changing evolution of the pc from a room-size ensemble of equipment to a "minicomputer" to a machine laptop to a pocket-sized clever mobile. He describes the advance of the silicon chip, that can shop ever-increasing quantities of knowledge and enabled ever-decreasing equipment dimension. He visits that hotbed of innovation, Silicon Valley, and brings the tale as much as the current with the net, the realm huge internet, and social networking.

Geometric Computing with Clifford Algebras: Theoretical by David Hestenes, Hongbo Li, Alyn Rockwood (auth.), Gerald

By David Hestenes, Hongbo Li, Alyn Rockwood (auth.), Gerald Sommer (eds.)

Clifford algebra, then known as geometric algebra, used to be brought greater than a cenetury in the past by way of William ok. Clifford, construction on paintings via Grassmann and Hamilton. Clifford or geometric algebra indicates robust unifying points and grew to become out within the Sixties to be a so much sufficient formalism for describing various geometry-related algebraic platforms as specializations of 1 "mother algebra" in quite a few subfields of physics and engineering. contemporary paintings outlines that Clifford algebra offers a common and powerfull algebraic framework for a sublime and coherent illustration of varied difficulties occuring in laptop technological know-how, sign processing, neural computing, picture processing, development reputation, desktop imaginative and prescient, and robotics. This monograph-like anthology introduces the options and framework of Clifford algebra and gives computing device scientists, engineers, physicists, and mathematicians with a wealthy resource of examples of ways to paintings with this formalism.
