Hybrid computers are computer systems that contain both digital and analog devices, so that each of these properties can be utilized to the maximum advantage. Large electronic computer system This kind of hybrid computer system had scores of operational amplifiers and was already being utilized as early as the beginning of the 1960s through to the middle of the 1980s. This system solved extensive and extremely complex sets of various differential equations (or mathematical models) for example, human immune- suppressive systems, the control system for the food processing plant, exothermic chemical reaction dynamics, and the six degree of freedom space flight. Special purpose hybrid computer This kind of hybrid computer has the ability to solve many categories of problems and to be able to utilize different applications. Many of these hybrid computers used to be purpose systems. They were either a part-time hybrid computer where the outcome was achieved at relative speed or they were an operation computer that utilized high speed. Special purpose hybrid computer This type of hybrid computer contains fixed programs that permit no adjustments or only a few. Generally, these computers are built into a physical system where they will typically serve as a results analyzer, function controller or subsystem simulator. As an example, the pneumatic computers use flapper nozzles and air bellows to generate precise square root, squaring, division or multiplication functions of any input signals. Digital is a term for computers based on the binary symbols 0 and 1. Digital computing is by far the dominant form of computer with non-digital computers being slightly obscure area of research. Digital computer are those in which we provide input very easily and getting output in a fraction of seconds. All devices you use like PC, Laptop, Desktop, Mobile, Smartwatch, etc. Digital computers are programmable machines that use electronic technology to generate, store and process data. Types of Digital computers are: Micro Computer Mainframes Minicomputer

World Wide Web (WWW) The World Wide Web (WWW) is combination of all resources and users on the Internet that are using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol ( HTTP ). A broader definition comes from the World Wide Web Consortium ( W3C ): "The World Wide Web is the universe of network-accessible information, an embodiment of human knowledge." The Web, as it's commonly known, is often confused with the internet . Although the two are intricately connected, they are different things. The internet is, as its name implies, a network -- a vast, global network that incorporates a multitude of lesser networks. As such, the internet consists of supporting infrastructure and other technologies. In contrast, the Web is a communications model that, through HTTP, enables the exchange of information over the internet.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
