The impact that computers has had on mathematics and mathematicians is profound. This volume presents a survey of the many ways in which this influence has been felt and the implications these have for the future development of mathematics. Individual chapters cover topics as diverse as automated theorem proving, computational algebra, word-processing algorithms, the Z specification language for computer systems, the use of types in computing, neural networks, and dynamical systems. All the contributors are experts in their respective fields and, as a result, not only does the volume provide insights into how computers are used in mathematics, but also, (perhaps more significantly) how the advent of computers has changed both the way mathematicians work and the nature of the problems that they study.It is symptomatic of the scale and complexity of most undertakings in modern engineering. As an example, the ... Canadian Journal of Agricultural Economics, vol. ... (Second edition), Prentice Hall, Englewood Cliffs, N.J. Boehm, B. W. (1981) .
