Alberto Pettorossi, Skowron A.

The role of mathematics in the era of electronic computers.

ABSTRACT
We analyse the beneficial influence of mathematical based approach in the development of Computer Science. Now-adays computing systems are so complex and expensive that their reliability is of great importance. Mathematics provides the necessary tools for reliable design of software and hardware products. Other branches of science, like physics, chemistry, etc. over the centutries, used mathematical based approaches for building theories, which are still very fruitful. The same happened during the last few years for Computer Science and we feel that it is already time to look back and analyse the deep contributions of Logic, Agebra, Topology, Category Theory, Graph Theory and Combinatorics and other fields in the theory and practice of Computer Systems design and their development. It has been a proficuous exchange of information between Computer Science and Mathematics: in fact, many mathematical research projects has been developed because of the need for solutions of particular problems that hardware and software technologies were proposing in the computer systems.
