Electronic Computers: Principles and Applications

£24.99

Product description

This is the second edition of a book first published in 1956 and so well-received that it had to be reprinted within twelve months. Developments since then have been so rapid that the present volume has had to be alomost entirely rewritten, most of the existing diagrams replaced by new ones, and pictures of more modern electronic computer equipment introduced. Three new chapters have also been added, dealing respectively with analogue computer circuits, the programming of digital computers, and the evolution of the more 'intelligent' machines of the future. ..The fundamental approach of the subject has, however, remained unchanged and as before the book is intended as a non-mathematical introduction to the principles and applications of computers employing valves, transistors and other electronic devices, and has been designed to appeal to technicians, engineers and students who have some knowledge of electronic or electrical engineering; but some chapters are also suitable for the interested layman.

Condition: Dustjacket shelfworn and slightly torn; boards mildly rubbed. Some foxing to foreedge and early pages. Pages clean and clear, binding tight.
