Resum
At the end of the 19th century, several analog machines had been proposed for solving algebraic equations. These machines – based not only on kinematics principles but also on dynamic or hydrostatic balances, electric or electromagnetic devices, etc. – had one important drawback: lack of accuracy. Leonardo Torres was the first to beat the challenge of designing and implementing a machine able to compute the roots of algebraic equations that, in the case of polynomials of degree eight, attai...
