Benjamin Woolley:

The Bride of Science: Romance, Reason, and Byron's Daughter - hardcover

ISBN: 0071373292

[SR: 1900746], Gebundene Ausgabe, [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, 56833011, Historisch, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 56881011, Wissenschaftler, 56874011, Fachleute & Akademiker, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 1316991031, Frauen, 1316987031, Spezifische Gruppen, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 63381011, Programmieren, 63383011, APIs & Betriebsumgebungen, 63373011, Algorithmen, 63421011, C, 63412011, Einführungen, 135279011, Funktional, 63404011, Grafik & Multimedia, 63069011, Java, 63128011, Netzwerk-Programmierung, 63138011, Plattformübergreifende Programmierung, 63248011, Software-Design & Entwicklung, 63461011, Spiele-Programmierung, 63418011, Sprachen & Tools, 62991011, Computer & Internet, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 56214011, Mathematik, 1320308031, Abbildungen, 56248011, Angewandte Mathematik, 1320307031, Forschung, 56263011, Geometrie & Topologie, 56212011, Geschichte, 56227011, Lernen & Lehren, 56217011, Mathematische Analyse, 56272011, Mathematische Physik, 56218011, Matrizen, 56219011, Messung, 56225011, Nachschlagewerke, 56221011, Populär & Elementar, 56230011, Reine Mathematik, 1320309031, Trigonometrie, 56216011, Unendlichkeit, 56220011, Zahlensysteme, 56047011, Wissenschaft, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

The Bride of Science: Romance, Reason, and Byron's Daughter - used book

1980

ISBN: 9780071373296

ID: 250558

Known in her own day as an "enchantress of numbers," Ada Byron, Lady Lovelace, daughter of the poet Lord Byron, was one of the most fascinating women of the 19th century. In collaboration with Charles Babbage, inventor of the mechanical "thinking machine" that anticipated by more than a century the invention of the computer, Ada devised a method of using punchcards to calculate Bernoulli numbers, and thus became the mother of computer programming. It was in her honor that, in 1980, the U.S. Department of Defense named its computer language "Ada." In this critically acclaimed biography, author Benjamin Woolley portrays Ada Byron's life as the embodiment of the schism between the worlds of Romanticism and scientific rationalism. He describes how Ada's efforts to bridge these opposites with a "poetical science" was the driving force behind one of the most remarkable careers of the Victorian Age. A brilliant chronicle of an extraordinary life in math and science and an enthralling rumination on the death of Romanticism and the birth of the Machine Age, The Bride of Science offers thought-provoking insights into the seemingly irreconcilable opposition between art and science that continues to haunt us today.
