Cybernetics; or, Control and Communication in the animal and the machine by Norbert Wiener ( Book )
166 editions published between 1946 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 2,959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Acclaimed one of the "seminal books... comparable in ultimate importance to... Galileo or Malthus or Rousseau or Mill", Cybernetics was judged by twenty-seven historians, economists, educators, and philosophers to be one of those books published during the "past four decades," which may have a substantial impact on public thought and action in the years ahead." -- Saturday Review
The human use of human beings : cybernetics and society by Norbert Wiener ( Book )
113 editions published between 1950 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Only a few books stand as landmarks in social and scientific upheaval. Norbert Wiener's classic is one in that small company. Founder of the science of cybernetics--the study of the relationship between computers and the human nervous system--Wiener was widely misunderstood as one who advocated the automation of human life. As this book reveals, his vision was much more complex and interesting. He hoped that machines would release people from relentless and repetitive drudgery in order to achieve more creative pursuits. At the same time he realized the danger of dehumanizing and displacement. His book examines the implications of cybernetics for education, law, language, science, technology, as he anticipates the enormous impact--in effect, a third industrial revolution--that the computer has had on our lives." --Back cover

The Fourier integral, and certain of its applications by Norbert Wiener ( Book )
56 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book is concerned principally with the Plancherel and Tauber theories as modified by other workers in the field, notably Wiener himself. Based on a course of lectures delivered at the University of Cambridge in 1932, it is divided into three separate groups of ideas. The first group deals with the Fourier transform and the Plancherel theorem. The second group treats the notion of an absolutely convergent Fourier series and of a Tauberian theorem. In the last group, Wiener deals with the concept of the spectrum. The final chapter is a lucid eposition of general harmonic analysis
