Charles Babbage and his calculating engines : selected writings by Charles Babbage and others by Charles Babbage( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Babbage, pioneer in the field of computing machines, is well known today as the development and dissemination of computers has made it clear that he was a man ahead of his time. For a large part of his life Babbage was chiefly interested in the calculating engine, but from his writings it is apparent that in addition to understanding the principles of the construction of computers, he had a clear insight into their potential applications and the way to use them. He was also a pioneer in the field of operations research, was interested in an amazingly broad range of subjects, and was one of the first people to obtain a government grant in support of research! The editors have written an introduction which serves as a coordinating preamble to some chapters from Babbage's "Passages from the Life of a Philosopher" along with selections from "Calculating Engines" and assorted miscellaneous papers, blending everything to produce a book which can be read with the ease of a novel and is certainly no less entertaining

In this notebook, Stephen Muecke describes the works of the Aboriginal artist Butcher Joe from Goolarabooloo, who visualized key ideas of his culture in the drawings reproduced here. They show places where the dead visit the living, events at the threshold between waking and sleeping: legends of dreamtime that explain how everything came into existence and that constitute the rules according to which people live. We see dancing, hunting, and working people, spirits, animals, skeletons<U+2014>particular scenes from history, partially translations of visual and acoustic memories, in which spirits can turn into humans and humans into animals. As a portrait of the indigenous Australian aesthetic, these drawings and the descriptive essay in the notebook allow the reader a personal insight into the world and life of the people and their mythical principles, according to which all<U+2014>be it animal, human, or plant<U+2014>is viewed in its potential to transform -- Publisher's description

Ada, the enchantress of numbers : a selection from the letters of Lord Byron's daughter and her description of the first computer by Ada King Lovelace( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Toole did research for more than eight years, burying herself in British archives and libraries to narrate and edit this extraordinary collection of letters written by Ada Lovelace. Not only do they outline Ada's ingenuity for the sciences, but they also enlighten us on all aspects of Lady Lovelace's multidimensional life: her passionate desire to flourish in a "man's world," her battle with drug addiction and chronic sickness, and her efforts as a mother and wife. Lovelace also had a reputation as a wild gambler and a lover. Ada was one of the first to write programs of instructions for Babbage's Analytical Engines, the famous precursors to the modern digital computer. Ada's letters are some of the classic founding documents of cybernetics and computer science, written nearly a century before ENIAC
The thrilling adventures of Lovelace and Babbage : with interesting & curious anecdotes of celebrated and distinguished characters fully illustrating a variety of instructive and amusing scenes ; as performed within and without the remarkable difference engine by Sydney Padua( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meet Victorian London's most dynamic duo: Charles Babbage, the unrealized inventor of the computer, and his accomplice, Ada, Countess of Lovelace, the peculiar protoprogrammer and daughter of Lord Byron. When Lovelace translated a description of Babbage's plans for an enormous mechanical calculating machine in 1842, she added annotations three times longer than the original work. Her footnotes contained the first appearance of the general computing theory, a hundred years before an actual computer was built. Sadly, Lovelace died of cancer a decade after publishing the paper, and Babbage never built any of his machines. But do not despair! The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage presents a rollicking alternate reality in which Lovelace and Babbage do build the Difference Engine and then use it to build runaway economic models, battle the scourge of spelling errors, explore the wilder realms of mathematics, and, of course, fight crime -- for the sake of both London and science. Complete with extensive footnotes that rival those penned by Lovelace herself, historical curiosities, and never-before-seen diagrams of Babbage's mechanical, steam-powered computer

Ada's algorithm : how Lord Byron's daughter Ada Lovelace launched the digital age by James Essinger( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over 150 years after her death, a widely-used scientific computer program was named "Ada," after Ada Lovelace, the only legitimate daughter of the eighteenth century's version of a rock star, Lord Byron. Why? Because, after computer pioneers such as Alan Turing began to rediscover her, it slowly became apparent that she had been a key but overlooked figure in the invention of the computer. Essinger makes the case that the computer age could have started two centuries ago if Lovelace's contemporaries had recognized her research and fully grasped its implications. It's a remarkable tale, starting with the outrageous behavior of her father, which made Ada instantly famous upon birth. Ada would go on to overcome numerous obstacles to obtain a level of education typically forbidden to women of her day. She would eventually join forces with Charles Babbage, generally credited with inventing the computer, although as Essinger makes clear, Babbage couldn't have done it without Lovelace. Indeed, Lovelace wrote what is today considered the world's first computer program -- despite opposition that the principles of science were "beyond the strength of a woman's physical power of application."
Women in European culture and society : a sourcebook by Deborah Simonton( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women in European Culture and Society: A Sourcebook includes a range of transnational sources which encompass the history of women in Europe from the beginning of the eighteenth century right up to the present day. Including documents from across Europe, from France and Germany to Estonia, Spain and Russia, organized in a broad chronological spread, the diversity of the sources included in the book is unique - including many never translated into English before. Deborah Simonton offers detailed interpretive introductions that analyse and contextualize the sources. A central feature is its exploration of how women operated within gendered worlds and used their skills and abilities to shape and claim their own identities and to engage with how they contributed as practitioners to shaping European culture and society. With over 200 sources, the book allows us to 'hear' women's voices as they articulate their understandings of their worlds and helps capture a sense of women's motivations, options and choices as they understood them - allowing readers to focus on either a period or a theme and providing a comparative resource."--Publisher's description

Enumerations by Stephanie Gibbs( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The text of Enumerations is the Note in which Ada Lovelace, mathematically trained daughter of Lord Byron, describes Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine. This first computer was based on Jacquard looms and the Note references a specific encyclopedia article on loom technology. The book is digitally printed onto unused computer punch cards from the Los Alamos National Laboratory, in New Mexico ... The trigonometry imagery is from Cyclopædia: or, An Universal Dictionary of Arts and Sciences, Ephraim Chambers, London, 1728. The trigonometry screenprints in the book were printed on vintage graph paper. The deluxe copies of Enumerations contain representations of different forms of memory associated with the development of computing: A full suite of trigonometry screenprints printed onto used computer punch cards ... A slide rule can be considered a form of external memory, an early computer ... The enclosed slide rules were constructed based on twentieth century card slide rules using logarithmic tables designed by John J.G. Savard ... Embroidery samplers based on magnetic core memory diagrams demonstrate the bridge of textiles and computers ... The diskettes enclosed contain programs related to engineering, computer science, and the humanities, representing the broad range of uses to which computers are now applied. A booklet providing a primer on base 10, binary, hexadecimal, and Roman numeral counting systems is illustrated with a range of colors, defined by their hexadecimal code, which is then translated into base ten and binary forms." --

Explaining that she might have to postpone his visit as she is "going on in all the wrong way, I am sorry to say. Last night in the middle of the night, I had a seizure of Angina Pectoris & I am so knocked to pieces that I doubt much if I can put my plans in execution at the time fixed. At the same time, I often alter very rapidly; & become quite myself & well even in a very few hours;" adding "It is mortal agony, for the time-being.--I have it occasionally."

Ashley-Combe, to Mr. Crosse by Ada King Lovelace( )

1 edition published in 1843 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Saying she has sent him a "copy of the paper I lately published in Taylor's Scientific Memoirs;" commenting that she has "lived almost entirely secluded. Those who are in earnest & with single mind devoted to any great object in life, must find this occasionally inevitable; & when (as has been my case during the last 10 months), family affairs of a harassing & complicated description, & also very strange & uncertain states of health, are superadded to the first cause, you will not wonder at having heard nothing from me, because you have experience & candor enough to perceive & know that God has not given to us (in this state of existence) more than very limited powers of physical inter-communication & expression of one's ideas & feeling. Would that every thought of mine could be father to the expression of it, to the communication of it to other sentient & thinking beings!;" asking if he can visit and telling him that Mr. Babbage is "likely to be here at the time I mention;" adding that she will "be very desirous of again seeing you. You know what that means from me, & that it is no [illegible] or humbug, but the simple expression & result of the respect & attraction I feel for a mind that ventures to read direct in God's own book, & not merely thro' man's translation of that same vast & mighty work."
Ashley Combe, to "my dear Babbage" by Ada King Lovelace( )

1 edition published in 1844 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Concerning an article she is submitting to the Quarterly that she is insisting must be allotted 60 pages; adding that she prefers that they think she is a male writer; asking if he could get her a copy of Dr. Thomas Young's Lectures; saying she has "read the 'Vestiges' & I wish to review it for the July No. of the Edinburgh. Have you any friend who could negociate [sic] this for me with the ruling powers of the Edinburgh, exactly as Lyell is doing for the Quarterly; I being strictly incognito, until & unless my production be accepted, & my sex not to be hinted at;" explaining that she feels confident she can work on the review and her work for him at the same time and that "Lord L-- also is of the impression that I can write two things at once far more easily than only one. This is a peculiarity of my mind which I think you will easily understand;" adding that she does "not suppose even you can be aware of the powerful & yet graceful analysis I have it in view to develop of your engine; or of the magic force with which I expect to bring facts & ideas from the North, the South, the East, and the West, to contribute towards my successful painting of your invention;" I consider that I am to paint your engine before the eyes & minds of men; & that mine will be an Artist's as well as Analyst's labour;" suggesting that she needs to visit him and "see what your people are now about;" listing the information she would like him to prepare for her in advance of her visit; concluding that it is her "object to make my Article such as will suit both the unlearned & the learned."
Ashley-Combe, to [Charles Babbage?] by Ada King Lovelace( )

1 edition published in 1844 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Expressing her happiness at receiving his letter; saying that "a startled conscience so easily takes fright. I knew that in some respects, I had deserved to have sunk in your esteem and confidence; consequently every little circumstance has appeared to me a proof that I had done so. You may accept my thanks; but forgiveness is uncalled for. Nothing can be more natural & explicable than what has occurred. You do not say however that you will again come & pass some time with us here; perhaps next year. And yet, day by day, as I walk up & down the Babbage terrace, do I think of this;" discussing what he said about Sir D. Brewster and asking if he would "transmit to him the following observations: viz: that I feel rather sorry he is going to write on the Engine, because I have had a kind of [illegible] intention of addressing him (during some weeks past), to consult him about writing for the Edinburgh, an account of the engine, which should be founded on the Article in it of 1835, & on Menabrea's Paper (with my Note); but which should also embrace several points of view not considered in those two publications. I should much like Sir D.N. to know this. Not that I want, for the world, to interfere with anything he has undertaken. If Sir David could indicate to me some other scientific Article, likely to be acceptable to the Edinburgh, I would at once undertake it, if it is a subject I should feel myself competent to treat as yet. Perhaps he could suggest to me a choice. I rather think some physiological topics would suit me as well as any."
