    The Sabre system was developed by IBM in the 1960s to handle reservations and seat inventory for American Airlines. System specification requirements included an unprecedented number of transactions, such as handling 83,000 daily phone calls. This look back at the project's history highlights system problems and achievements. View full abstract»

    Three well-known algorithms, implemented separately within a span of 20 years, demonstrate the use of mathematics developed hundreds of years ago. The algorithms don't have much in common except for two things: they were implemented between 1949 and 1965 during the so-called first generation of computing hardware-and they are good examples of rigorous thinking. First, I explain Bresenham's algorit... View full abstract»
