Norsk Regnesentral: 1952-2002 was published for the 50th anniversary of the Norwegian Computing Center in 2002. The book provides a detailed history of our organisational development, and includes articles about the institute’s contributions in a number of subject areas.
The book accounts for NR’s development from a national computer centre to methodological institute, and from a service body under NTNF’s selection committee for mathematical machines to the independent research foundation we are today.
The book also features a number of articles about SIMULA; developments in quantitative methods; the development of computer technologies and data communications, and various perspectives regarding the conflict between NR and NTNF in 1968-1970. In addition, readers can enjoy articles about data technology in a societal context, sociality at NR, and a comprehensive overview of full-time staff up until 2002.
The book has contributions from almost 50 people, most of whom have been employees at the institute, and is richly illustrated.
