Over the last few years computer hardware has continued to become smaller, cheaper, faster and more numerous. Computer software too has continued to become more efficient and powerful. The result has therefore been an availability of increasingly versatile microcomputers whose power rival that of minicomputers and many of the earlier generations of mainframe computers. At the same time, computers and communications have merged, with the result that computing power has become cheaper than communication. As the computation becomes cheaper and the machines become faster, the desire to solve larger and more complex problems will continue to increase. [Continues.]
