isogonal conjugates of classical centers, centers on 
circumcircle, on nine-point circle, centers of central
triangles, isoscelizer centers, isoperimetric point, 
equal-detour point, Ajima-Malfatti points, Apollonius center, 
Ceva conjugates, isotomic conjugates, center of Parry circle, 
Morley centers, Hofstadter points, Kenmotu point, 
Yff-Malfatti point, Gossard perspector, centers on Euler 
line, Tixier points, center of Yiu conic, Eppstein points, 
Evans perspector, van Lamoen square-associated centers,

               THE ANALYTICAL ENGINE - John Walker

                 http://www.fourmilab.to/babbage/


In the late 1800s, the mathematician Charles Babbage designed 
an Analytical Engine, a mechanical precursor to the computer. 
Read historical documents related to the Engine, including 
Blaise Pascal's account of his mechanical adding machine (in 
French), as well as Babbage's comments on designing ciphers.

The site also allows you to run example programs, download
the Java source code, and explore a Java emulator of the 
Analytical Engine:
