This book is a comprehensive introduction to analog computing. As most textbooks about this powerful computing paradigm date back to the 1960s and 1970s, it fills a void and forges a bridge from the early days of analog computing to future applications. The idea of analog computing is not new. In fact, this computing paradigm is nearly forgotten, although it offers a path to both high-speed and low-power computing, which are in even more demand now than they were back in the heyday of electronic analog computers.An obvious way to implement a multiplier is based on a servo function generator driva ing a number of linearly wound potentiometers mounted on a common shaft. The input variable to control the servo circuit would be x while the ends of theanbsp;...
