Analogue computers (as distinct from digital computers) once ruled the world as they could simulate a complex system in real time, rather than at a slow speed to allow the primitive digiatal computers to perform all the necessary computations. They were difficult to set up, the accuracy varied for a few hundredths of a percent up to 5%, they were enormous and expensive, but they were the workhorses of research & industry for many applications from the 50's up to the mid 70's. This book gives a very good view of how to set up problems on a typical computer, and is essential reading for any uber-techno-geek. Normal people can just be content with the latest Jeffrey Archer novel.
