Albion College Mathematics and Computer Science Colloquium

 Title: Speaker: David L. Anderson Visiting Assistant Professor Mathematics and Computer Science Department Albion College Albion, Michigan Abstract: In this talk, an overview of the physical problems faced by fire-control systems, including relative ship motion, wind velocity, the Coriolis effect, projectile drift due to rifling, and ship pitch and roll due to wave action. As continual advancements were made to control-fire systems, such as gyroscopic and gear-based computers, the practical firing range increased from several hundred yards to over 20 miles.
