Computers; History

  • Alan Turing's Automatic Computing Engineby B. Jack Copeland

    Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 27.99

    The mathematical genius Alan Turing (1912-1954) was one of the greatest scientists and thinkers of the 20th century. Now well known for his crucial wartime role in breaking the ENIGMA code, he was the first to conceive of the fundamental principle of the modern computer-the idea of controlling a computing machine's operations by means of a program... more...

    This history of the computer explores the roots of the industry's development, tracing not only the development of the machine itself--beginning with Charles Babbage's 1833 mechanical prototype--but also chronicling the effects of manufacturing and sales innovations by companies that made the boom possible. more...

  • Dice Worldby Brian Clegg

    Icon Books 2013; US$ 11.65

    For centuries scientists believed that the universe was a vast machine ? with enough detail, you could predict exactly what would happen. Admittedly real life wasn?t like that. But only, they argued, because we didn?t have enough data to be certain. Then the cracks began to appear. It proved impossible to predict exactly how three planets orbiting... more...

  • Digital Revolutionariesby Steve Lohr

    Roaring Brook Press 2009; US$ 15.99

    In the beginning, there was the computer. And it was big. As big as a room. Sometimes as big as a house. Early computers required teams of white-coated scientists to keep them running, yet one of those giant behemoths could not match the computing power of a single microchip today. From the first massive computers to today's nanotechnology, DIGITAL... more...

  • Explorations in Quantum Computingby Colin P. Williams

    Springer 2010; US$ 99.00

    By the year 2020, the basic memory components of a computer will be the size of individual atoms. At such scales, the current theory of computation will become invalid. "Quantum computing" is reinventing the foundations of computer science and information theory in a way that is consistent with quantum physics - the most accurate model of... more...
