Early 1960’s look at how computers can be used to assist with complex mathematical problems. Binary logic & arithmetic used by computers is explained. Many scenes of large mainframe computers (the circa 1958 RCA 501 transistorized “Data Processing System” is featured), tape storage devices, card readers, impact printers, operator consoles, and computer scientists.
Some interesting background information about the RCA501 can be found at http://www.computer.org/csdl/proceedings/afips/1958/5053/00/50530160.pdf
