Provides a detailed description and discussion of the special-purpose computer for the information retrieval field developed at the Laboratory for Electromodelling of the Academy of Science, U.S.S.R. Developed by a leading Soviet computer designer in mechanized information retrieval, the design criteria presented are based on the Soviet Union's policy of centralization and therefore are of particular interest to Western research workers at a time when major decisions are being reached with regard to appropriate balances between centralized and decentralized information retrieval activities (from the jacket flap) The special-purpose computer hardware described is expressed in terms that computer specialists can understand from a review of what is technologically feasible...

Good overall, decorated red cloth hardcover, in Good+ red and white dustjacket and clear acetate glassine jacket protector. Some edgewear and rubbing to jacket, shelfwear to covers, binding is sound and secure, pages clean but with occasional intermittent pencil underlines

Covers the concepts and features of electronic computers, not restricted to a specific computer system. The book also provides instruction on FORTRAN and COBOL, two major problem-oriented languages. Since both of these languages are machine-independent they can be used on most computers. COBOL is particularly useful for business data processing, and FORTRAN is used for analytical and research problems. Self-testing quizzes are included in both the Fortran and Cobol chapters to facilitate self-study... (From the jacket flap)

Appendices include, Computer Manufacturers 1960's; Survey of Computers; guide to Computer Organizations and Periodicals; data Processing Management association certificate program; Glossary and more

The first chapter is, The Historical Development of Automatic Electronic Computers -- what a computer is; historical development of computers -- Babbage and the Difference Engine; Boolean algebra; the Machine-readable Punched Card; The Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator Mark I; The ENIAC; The EDVAC; IAS Institute for Advanced Study; The UNIVAC; The Transistor; Microelectronics; The Equipment in a Comptuer Center -- central processor; Magnetic tape units; Card reader and card punch; Paper tape punch and paper tape reader; Printer; and more
