The Encyclopedia of Microcomputers serves as the ideal companion reference to the popular Encyclopedia of Computer Science and Technology. Now in its 10th year of publication, this timely reference work details the broad spectrum of microcomputer technology, including microcomputer history; explains and illustrates the use of microcomputers throughout academe, business, government, and society in general; and assesses the future impact of this rapidly changing technology.
Presenting alphabetically arranged volumes written by world-renowned practitioners and researchers, the Encyclopedia features articles that are scholarly yet clearly written, all-inclusive and straightforward, stimulating to the specialist but understandable to the newcomer in the field, advanced and technically sophisticated but also include solid fundamentals, and specific as well as generic in approach and content.
The Encyclopedia of Microcomputers suits the needs of micro- computer and hardware specialists, programmers, systems analysts, engineers, operations researchers, mathematicians, and novices as well as seasoned professionals in all fields where computers are used to process data or solve problems. The set will be completed with the publication of the index in volume 21 in October 1997. Supplement volumes are in preparation.
