Abstract : In this book, the authors consider problems of using electronic digital computers (TsVM) engineering calculations and studies. The operating principles are TsVM are presented together with programming fundamentals and methods for solving engineering problems by TsVM. The operator method of programming is presented, and basic information is given on the ALGOL-60 algorithmic language. Methods are considered for TsVM evaluation and investigation of transient processes and stability of dynamic systems as well as engineering problems leading to boundary-value problems for ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations. The fundamentals of the Monte Carlo method are presented together with its principles of application for TsVM studies of control systems and queueing problems. Methods of TsVM solution of linear and nonlinear programming problems are considered. A brief discussion is given of the operating principles of control computers and automatic data processing systems with the special features of programming for these installations. The book is intended for scientific workers, engineers, and graduate students. It may be used by higher-technical school students as a text for the course 'Computers and Programming.' (Author)
