[SR: 2740711], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780071373296], Schaum Outline Series, Schaum Outline Series, Book, [PU: Schaum Outline Series], Schaum Outline Series, Ada Lovelace, the result of Lord Byron's short- lived marriage to Annabella Milbanke, is an extraordinary figure in 19th-century society. Not only was she the daughter of a celebrity, but she was the first computer programmer the world has known. From the moment she was born, in 1815, Ada was a controversial figure. Her mother, a woman known for her piety and intellect, had fled the marital home taking her three-week-old baby with her. In this first comprehensive biography of Lovelace, Benjamin Woolley contends that the child embodied a chasm between Romanticism as represented by her father, and Reason as represented by his wife. He examines how, as an adult, she struggled to reconcile these opposites by creating a "poetical science". But first he deals with her childhood. We learn of Annabella's ferocious educational regime, and a young girl who, understandably, took refuge in the imagination. Woolley's achievement is in making accessible the scientific theories that absorbed Lovelace and that led to her breakthrough in computer science. His approach to her work is grounded in her domestic setting which he portrays as oppressive, and as hastening her early death in 1852 from cervical cancer. The Bride of Science is a powerful piece of work, entirely appropriate for a revolutionary woman. --Lilian Pizzichini, 758986, 1701-1900, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758998, Georgian to Victorian: 1701-1900, 268022, Britain, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758928, Social & Urban History, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 267954, Novelists, Poets & Playwrights, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 268043, Britain, 268041, Political, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 759166, Computers, 758860, Science, Mathematics & Technology, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 268083, Women, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 269678, Programming, 269679, APIs, 269709, Algorithms, 269795, Compilers, 269728, Database Design & Programming, 269684, Device Drivers, 403974, Games, 14160001, Graphics & Multimedia, 269955, Interface Design, 269773, Introduction, 14166501, Introduction to Programming, 404252, Languages, 269776, Languages & Tools, 14160131, Linux & Unix, 14160211, Mac OS X, 14160061, Microsoft Windows, 14159991, Mobile Phone Programming, 14160121, Network Programming, 14159921, Software Design, Testing & Engineering, 71, Computing & Internet, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 772136, History of Science, 271389, Other Historical Subjects, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278320, Mathematics, 278321, Algebra, 278329, Applied Mathematics, 278337, Calculus & Mathematical Analysis, 922518, Chaos, 278348, Combinatorics & Graph Theory, 278350, Discrete Mathematics, 922526, Education, 278353, Geometry & Topology, 278362, History of Mathematics, 278363, Mathematical Foundations, 922522, Mathematical Theory, 922530, Modelling, 278373, Numbers, 278380, Optimisation, 278384, Philosophy of Mathematics, 922520, Popular Maths, 278385, Probability & Statistics, 922944, Recreational, 278386, Reference, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922942, Maths, 922518, Chaos, 922944, Recreational, 922868, Popular Science, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 564352, Mathematics, 570902, Algebra, 570874, Applied Mathematics, 570912, Calculus & Mathematical Analysis, 570934, Combinatorics & Graph Theory, 570936, Geometry, 570964, Mathematical Theory, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276588, Women's Studies, 276591, Feminist Criticism, 276596, Writers & Writing, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 280207, Historical, 280199, Biographies, 52, Young Adult, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 280209, Women, 280199, Biographies, 52, Young Adult, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
