An Introduction to Digital Computing provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of digital computing. This book represents a major step towards the universal availability of programmed material. Organized into four chapters, this book begins with an overview of the fundamental workings of the computer, including the way it handles simple arithmetic problems. This text then provides a brief survey of the basic features of a typical computer that is divided into three sections, namely, the input and output system, the memory system for data storage, and a processing system. Other chapters focus on programming and on the workings of the computer control unit. This book discusses as well the various arithmetic codes such as binary, decimal, octal, duodecimal, and hexadecimal codes. The final chapter deals with some of the more detailed workings of the control unit. This book is a valuable resource for university students and computer specialists.
