    Making the History of Computing. The History of Computing in the History of Technology and the History of Mathematics.Liesbeth De Mol & Maarten Bullynck - 2018 - Revue de Synthèse 139 (3-4):361-380.
    A history of writing the history of computing is presented in its relationship to the history of mathematics. As with many historiographies, the initial history of computing was very much an internalistic history. In the late 1970s, the field became more serious and started looking at the histories of mathematics and technology for inspiration. Whereas the history of mathematics was initially quite influential, it is the history of technology that has become the dominant framework for doing history of computing since (...)

    Setting-Up Early Computer Programs: D. H. Lehmer’s ENIAC Computation. [REVIEW]Maarten Bullynck & Liesbeth De Mol - 2010 - Archive for Mathematical Logic 49 (2):123-146.
    A complete reconstruction of Lehmer’s ENIAC set-up for computing the exponents of p modulo two is given. This program served as an early test program for the ENIAC (1946). The reconstruction illustrates the difficulties of early programmers to find a way between a man operated and a machine operated computation. These difficulties concern both the content level (the algorithm) and the formal level (the logic of sequencing operations).

    Closing the Circle: An Analysis of Emil Post's Early Work.Liesbeth de Mol - 2006 - Bulletin of Symbolic Logic 12 (2):267-289.
    In 1931 Kurt Gödel published his incompleteness results, and some years later Church and Turing showed that the decision problem for certain systems of symbolic logic has a negative solution. However, already in 1921 the young logician Emil Post worked on similar problems which resulted in what he called an “anticipation” of these results. For several reasons though he did not submit these results to a journal until 1941. This failure ‘to be the first’, did not discourage him: his contributions (...)

  8. ‘A Pretence of What is Not’? A Study of Simulation From the ENIAC Perspective.Liesbeth De Mol - 2019 - NTM Zeitschrift für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Technik und Medizin 27 (4):443-478.
    What is the significance of high-speed computation for the sciences? How far does it result in a practice of simulation which affects the sciences on a very basic level? To offer more historical context to these recurring questions, this paper revisits the roots of computer simulation in the development of the ENIAC computer and the Monte Carlo method.With the aim of identifying more clearly what really changed in the history of science in the 1940s and 1950s due to the computer, (...)
