Caption: Arnold Nordsieck (1911-1971), US theoretical physicist at the controls of his analogue computer, the Nordsieck Differential Analyzer. Nordsieck is best known for his work with Felix Bloch on the infrared problem in quantum electrodynamics. He developed the inertial electrostatic gyroscope (ESG) used as part of the inertial navigation system of nuclear submarines that allows them to remain underwater without having to surface to ascertain their location. The Nordsieck Differential Analyzer was built out of war surplus materials in the late 1940s. It could solve complex equations and draw curves.
