Abstract:

This memorandum summarizes some aspects of our experience with the Reeves Electronic Analogue Computer REAC installation at RAND. A rather thorough knowledge of both the engineering details and mathematical principles of a standard REAC is assumed. Part I consists of an outline of the modifications made both by Reeves and by RAND. The emphasis is on engineering details. Part II contains examples of generalized operational techniques of an unusual nature, combined with a scrutiny of several problems solved at RAND. Part III is a discussion of personnel requirements,and calibration and maintenance procedures.
