About this product
- Descriptiondecision and investigative process of the scientist, they can also wri te the paragra}ils of scientific resul ts. Once a canputer research activity progresses from intuitive guesses to a systematic study, the canputer program can free the scientist to pursue new original ideas. '!his concept is illustrated in the ptper by Hut. Sussnan says Kwledge is kwing what t to canpute. His main message is that we must change from trying to maximize the efficiency of the canputer to maximizing the effectiveness of the scientist. The canputer is relatively cheap, it is the trained scientist who is most valuable. In the second keyte address, R. L. Duncombe (University of Texas) described the Early Applications of Canputer Techlogy to Dynamical Astronany. His talk traced the worldwide introduction of punched card equipnent and their applications through the use of the first electronic canputers. Sussman and Duncombe, therefore, provided a forecast and review of the use of computers in dynamical astronany. This proceedings is intended to provide a consolidated general view of the ptst, present, and future of the Applications of Canputer Techlogy to Dynamical Astronany. Of necessity this requires that the ptpers be rela ti vely short and provide references to the more canplete discussions. Thanks to the representa tion from so many different countries the proceedings give a picture of the activities worldwide. The Scientific Organizing Comnittee included K. B. IIlatnagar, V. A. Brtmberg, G. Contopoulos, A. Depri t , J. Henrard, J. Kovalevsky, Y.
