Vintage Scientific Computing
I'm using this page to track pages related to the intersection of two of my interests: scientific computing and retrocomputing. Together, these interests make a pretty niche topic
Here are some posts on the history of MATLAB from the official MathWorks blog:
- Wilkinson and Reinsch Handbook on Linear Algebra
- LINPACK, Linear Equation Package
- EISPACK, Matrix Eigensystem Routines
- MATLAB History, PC-MATLAB Version 1.0
- Modern MATLAB, part 1
- Modern MATLAB, part 2
- The MATLAB Technical Computing Environment
- MultiMATLAB - Interesting for the large number of MATLAB to C compilers it cites.
- SAS Institute/FDA Intellectual Partnership for Efficient Regulated Research Data Archival and Analyses
- Selection from "Strength in Numbers: The Rising of Academic Statistics Departments in the U. S."
- SAS grows from an on-campus project to an independent company (oral history)
