Friday, 12 March 2021

This book is a collection of forty-six classic papers in computer science that map the evolution of the field. Harry R. Lewis has chosen papers that cover all aspects of computer science: theory and practice, architectures and algorithms, and logic and software systems, with an emphasis on the period of 1936-1980 but also including important works from the pre-history of computing. Offering papers by thinkers ranging from Aristotle and Leibniz to Alan Turing and Nobert Wiener, the book documents the discoveries and inventions that created today's digital world.
