Once Upon A Time, There Was A Demo...
March 1995 (vol. 12 no. 2)
pp. 8

Computer technology, including software, has reached a point where it can beexcavated and studied archeologically. Such excavations can be very insightful:Several years ago, when I was building a program library for numericalcalculation, my mentor professor at Tokyo University was Ayao Amemiya. This man, who built Japan’s first computer in 1952, brought me a dusty book, Acta Mathematics, written by L. Bourguet in 1883. We used the book to implementfomulas for Maclaurin expansion of a gamma function. Now Guillermo Arangohas unearthed another jewel, written 160 years ago. I hope you enjoy this treasure with an excavator’s eye.
