Recent and Prospective Developments and Their Impact on Mathematical Physics, and Calculating Instruments and Machines

This reprint of Douglas Hartree's principal work also includes his inaugural Cambridge lecture, Calculating Machines: Recent and Prospective Developments and Their Impact on Mathematical Physics, which is extremely difficult to obtain and which makes ideal preliminary reading for the main set of lectures presented in Calculating Instruments and Machines. In these, Hartree provided the first comprehensive survey of the significant developments in computation that were going on at the timeā€”the main directions of development in storage systems, serial machines, and parallel progr
