Computing Environments for Problem Solving

  • David R. Brooks
Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Computer Science book series (UTCS)


This chapter offers a very brief history of electronic computing and an equally brief description of some of the features of computing environments you are likely to encounter during a course based on this text. It also includes a discussion of the role of Fortran and programming in the problem-solving process.
