<p>Early applications of EDSAC are described - including the calculation of prime numbers, solutions of algebraic equations, and experimental learning programs - to illustrate the wide field of programs written in the first years of stored-program computing. The influence of the library routines - such as those for the solution of differential equations - on progress in applied mathematics is considered. The initial work in wave mechanics, economics, crystallography, and radio astronomy is described. Finally, the development of EDSAC 2 and its importance to the advance of many of these topics are considered.</p>
