뉴딜과 mathematical tables project
실업구제용 뉴딜중 하나. Mathematical Tables Project
"hundreds of unskilled people to compile a large number of mathematical tables of all sorts of mathematical information" 이런게 가능했단 말인가
실업자들 모아서 무슨 계산을 하고 있었나 보려면 클릭. 이런게 뉴딜ㄷㄷ

Conducted under the sponsorship of the National Bureau of Standards. Lyman J. Briggs, director, National Bureau of Standards, official sponsor. Arnold N. Lowan, technical director, Mathematical Tables Project.

- The Mathematical Tables Project survived the termination of the WPA in 1943 and continued to operate in New York until 1948.
- Edited by two veterans of the project, Milton Abramowitz and Irene Stegun, it became a widely circulated mathematical and scientific reference.
- There are three articles treating the history of the Mathematical Tables Project.
- A short history that puts the group in a bigger context is: H. Salzer, "New York Mathematical Tables Project,", vol.
- It is at variance with the archival record in many points, including the size of the project, the number of the technical staff, and the location and origins of the project.
- Nonetheless, it does give the feeling for how the Mathematical Tables Project operated.
- The Mathematical Tables Project began as an effort by the New Deal's Works Progress (later Work Projects) Administration to create jobs.
- This paper is a fascinating, though blandly written, story of the project—how it worked, what it did, and who led it.
- The project produced 28 significant math tables and many minor ones before full employment after World War II and the dawn of the computer age spelled its doom.
- Prepared by the Mathematical Tables Project, conducted under the sponsorship of the National Bureau of Standards.
