Abstract:

Russians were active very early in the development of calculating devices, information theory, and computers. Even before the Russian Revolution of 1917, Russian engineers and scientists made important advances in this field. The Russian naval engineer and mathematician Alexei Krylov (1863-1945) was interested in applying mathematics to problems of shipbuilding. In 1904 he built a machine to solve differential equations. Another younger engineer, Mikhail Bonch-Bruevich (1888-1940), working in the same city, St. Petersburg, was studying vacuum tube development for radios. Around 1916 he invented one of the very first flip-flop relays based on an electronic circuit with two
