    Teleprocessing systems are mushrooming throughout public and private industry: computer-to-computer links form an integral part of our national defense system and air traffic control; manned terminal-to-computer systems establish reservations on airlines and at motels; hybrid systems keep our tax returns honest. But these computer centers, remote terminals, and displays are often a part, and requi... View full abstract»

    War is a killing game that is brought to its highest playing efficiency by the scientific researchers, engineers, and technicians of all major powers. Although some of the devices and techniques were developed in peacetime, the majority of the weapons systems were evolved in wartime crash programs, usually in response to new and advanced devices used by an enemy. Thus, with the advent of each new ... View full abstract»

    Like the earlier magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) concept, EGD conversion is being seriously considered by the utilities as a possible future means for obtaining large-scale production of electric power. Probably the principal advantage of the EGD converter is that a high gas temperature is not a basic requirement. In addition, the EGD system is potentially capable of generating ac power directly at tran... View full abstract»

    The fast Fourier transform (FFT), a computer algorithm that computes the discrete Fourier transform much faster than other algorithms, is explained. Examples and detailed procedures are provided to assist the reader in learning how to use the algorithm. The savings in computer time can be huge; for example, an N = 210-point transform can be computed with the FFT 100 times faster than with the use ... View full abstract»
