This serial is dedicated to the presentation of a major new developments in the field of computer science. An annual volume of |Advances in Computers" has been published since the early years of study in computer science. Since its inception in 1960, "Advances" has taken an active part in the dramatic expansion and dynamic change in computers. The serial provides a medium for articles that are longer than many found in journals. Subjects are treated in greater depth and breadth, and in spite of the everchanging nature of the field, many articles have become standard references and continue to be of significant value.

Yovits has been editing this work, and has been continuing the philosophy and foresight that established "Advances in Computers" in the early days. Each volume of |Advances in Computers" contains an author and subject index, and each chapter includes references.
