John Von Neumann

nAt the Institute for Advanced
Study in Princeton, Hungarian-American mathematician John von
Neumann developed one of the first computers used
to solve problems in mathematics, meteorology, economics, and
hydrodynamics. Von Neumann's 1945 design for the Electronic Discrete
Variable Automatic Computer (EDVAC) was the first electronic
computer design to incorporate a program stored entirely within its memory.
