Program-controlled universal computer


1. 1. Why do we deal with calculators? Technology is developing at an incomparable pace and gives people the opportunity not only to penetrate to the core of matter, but even to leave the earth to which they have been bound since their existence in order to explore the universe. However, this does not happen automatically, but requires people to solve problems with the greatest precision and answer questions in the shortest possible time. Thousands of arithmetic operations often have to be performed in fractions of a second. The constantly increasing refinement of production processes also requires the most complex physical, chemical, technological and other processes to be recorded with mathematical aids. The classic methods of pure mathematics are less and less able to meet the growing demands of technology. The technical problem must either be subordinate to the classical methods or approximation methods must be used. This brings with it new difficulties, which arise on the one hand from the large scope of the numerical calculations to be carried out and on the other hand from the accuracy of the results that can be given in the rarest cases. The engineer therefore mostly preferred linear approaches in the mathematical treatment of practical problems and idealized the tasks in order to be able to apply the above-mentioned classical methods. Effects that were important in practice were often lost from the outset.
