The Belgian Electronic Mathematical Machine (1951-1962): An Account
Dedicated to Brian Randell, Emeritus Professor of Newcastle upon Tyne University, in commemoration of his 75th birthday, this paper evokes the origins and the development of an electronic computer realized in Antwerp (Belgium) in the early 1950’s. Our main focus is on some interesting archetypes and advanced aspects of the design, and on how a small group of Belgians engineers developed this early machine.
