"Calculation and Tabulation in the Nineteenth Century: Airy versus Babbage"

Doron Swade's 2003 PhD thesis entitled "Calculation and Tabulation in the Nineteenth Century: Airy versus Babbage" is available for download.

It covers the interaction between Charles Babbage and George Airy and shines light on a relationship that has previously been reduced to caricatures of the two men.
