The Art of Doing SCIENCE and Engineering: Learning to Learn, Richard W. Hamming (1915-1998)
MetadataShow full item record
The late Richard W. Hamming made numerous fundamental contributions to mathematics and computer science. He passed away suddenly on January 7, 1998. For many years he taught a capstone course on the future of science and engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). This course is extremely stimulating. Many people think it is the most important course they have ever taken. Dr. Hamming's observations on learning and the conduct of scientific inquiry are profound, far-reaching and practical. Because he discusses a large number of subjects which he helped develop first-hand, this course has sometimes been called "Hamming on Hamming." However, Dr. Hamming was always insistent that he only used first-person examples because they best achieved his true goal: showing people how they might learn to learn.
