    Man's instinct to gamble is at least as old as government's need for funds. So it should come as no surprise that government has learned to regard gambling as a source of revenue, whether through direct taxation or through government-run gambling establishments. In the US recently, changing moral attitudes towards gambling as well as increasingly desperate local financing needs, have produced a su... View full abstract»

    Horse racing and breeding is an old European tradition that came to the United States with the early colonists. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Andrew Jackson — all land owners — participated in the breeding and racing of horses. Although bets were made, it was the race that was most important. This changed with the coming of the bookmakers. View full abstract»

    The complexity of digital computers and their large scale use have led some researchers to investigate tools not commonly used. In recent years, applications of graph theory to computers as well as other fields of study have given fruitful results and have attracted more and more scientists. The attempt here will be to review previous accomplishments on a fundamental level and to stimulate the rea... View full abstract»

    An interactive computer environment is one which attempts to facilitate the interplay between man and machine in pursuit of a goal defined by man. Presumably, to be effective, this environment should allow the calculating speed, precision, and structured logical/iterative skill of the machine to serve the conceptual, intuitive, highly associative, and contexturally sensitive attributes of human me...

    The newly organized Technical Committee on Mass Storage held its first Workshop in Washington, D.C., May 22–23. The objective of the Workshop was to bring together professionals, not only in the area of mass store technology, but also those who have been involved with the use or systems design of such devices. Since the operation of a mass storage system requires a significant interaction w... View full abstract»
