*Written*: June 12, 1992*Subjects*: Classical mechanics, computational math*Abstract*. Since the first work of Fermi, Pasta, and Ulam in 1952, computation has played a small but stimulating role in the explosive development of conservative mechanics. Here is a brief survey of the highlights of the early experimental work in Hamiltonian mechanics, done by the pioneers of computational mathematics on digital computers.- [PDF] 360 KB, 3 pages
