The computer from Pascal to von Neumann by Herman Heine Goldstine( )

69 editions published between 1972 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 3,528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1942, Lt. Herman H. Goldstine, a former mathematics professor, was stationed at the Moore School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. It was there that he assisted in the creation of the ENIAC, the first electronic digital computer. The ENIAC was operational in 1945, but plans for a new computer were already underway. The principal source of ideas for the new computer was John von Neumann, who became Goldstine's chief collaborator. Together they developed EDVAC, successor to ENIAC. After World War II, at the Institute for Advanced Study, they built what was to become the prototype of the present-day computer. Herman Goldstine writes as both historian and scientist in this first examination of the development of computing machinery, from the seventeenth century through the early 1950s. His personal involvement lends a special authenticity to his narrative, as he sprinkles anecdotes and stories liberally through his text

A treatise on the mathematical theory of elasticity by Augustus Edward Hough Love( Book )

1 edition published in 1944 in English and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An indispensable reference work for engineers, mathematicians, and physicists, this book is the most complete and authoritative treatment of classical elasticity in a single volume. Beginning with elementary notions of extension, simple shear and homogeneous strain, the analysis rapidly undertakes a development of types of strain, displacements corresponding to a given strain, cubical dilatation, composition of strains and a general theory of strains. A detailed analysis of stress including the stress quadric and uniformly varying stress leads into an exposition of the elasticity of solid bodies. Based upon the work-energy concept, experimental results are examined and the significance of elastic constants in general theory considered. Hooke's Law, elastic constants, methods of determining stress, thermo-elastic equations, and other topics are carefully discussed. --Back cover
Principles of numerical analysis by Alston S Householder( Book )

A history of numerical analysis from the 16th through the 19th century by Herman H Goldstine( Book )

21 editions published in 1977 in 3 languages and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book I have attempted to trace the development of numerical analysis during the period in which the foundations of the modern theory were being laid. To do this I have had to exercise a certain amount of selectivity in choosing and in rejecting both authors and papers. I have rather arbitrarily chosen, in the main, the most famous mathematicians of the period in question and have concentrated on their major works in numerical analysis at the expense, perhaps, of other lesser known but capable analysts. This selectivity results from the need to choose from a large body of literature, and from my feeling that almost by definition the great masters of mathematics were the ones responsible for the most significant accomplishments. In any event I must accept full responsibility for the choices. I would particularly like to acknowledge my thanks to Professor Otto Neugebauer for his help and inspiration in the preparation of this book. This consisted of many friendly discussions that I will always value. I should also like to express my deep appreciation to the International Business Machines Corporation of which I have the honor of being a Fellow and in particular to Dr. Ralph E. Gomory, its Vice-President for Research, for permitting me to undertake the writing of this book and for helping make it possible by his continuing encouragement and support

A history of the calculus of variations from the 17th through the 19th century by Herman H Goldstine( Book )

26 editions published between 1977 and 1995 in English and German and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The calculus of variations is a subject whose beginning can be precisely dated. It might be said to begin at the moment that Euler coined the name calculus of variations but this is, of course, not the true moment of inception of the subject. It would not have been unreasonable if I had gone back to the set of isoperimetric problems considered by Greek mathemati cians such as Zenodorus (c. 200 B.C.) and preserved by Pappus (c. 300 A.D.). I have not done this since these problems were solved by geometric means. Instead I have arbitrarily chosen to begin with Fermat's elegant principle of least time. He used this principle in 1662 to show how a light ray was refracted at the interface between two optical media of different densities. This analysis of Fermat seems to me especially appropriate as a starting point: He used the methods of the calculus to minimize the time of passage cif a light ray through the two media, and his method was adapted by John Bernoulli to solve the brachystochrone problem. There have been several other histories of the subject, but they are now hopelessly archaic. One by Robert Woodhouse appeared in 1810 and another by Isaac Todhunter in 1861
