Aad is a Dutch short version of the given name Adrianus/Adriaan.
Adriaan is the Dutch spelling of the given name Adrian.
ALGOL (short for "Algorithmic Language") is a family of imperative computer programming languages, originally developed in the mid-1950s, which greatly influenced many other languages and was the standard method for algorithm description used by the ACM in textbooks and academic sources for more than thirty years.
ALGOL 60 (short for Algorithmic Language 1960) is a member of the ALGOL family of computer programming languages.
ALGOL 68 (short for Algorithmic Language 1968) is an imperative computer programming language that was conceived as a successor to the ALGOL 60 programming language, designed with the goal of a much wider scope of application and more rigorously defined syntax and semantics.
Éva Tardos (born 1 October 1957) is a Hungarian mathematician and the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Computer Science at Cornell University.
Barry James Mailloux (died May 26, 1982) obtained his M.Sc in Numerical Analysis in 1963.
Bram Jan Loopstra (1925 – 1979) was a Dutch computing pioneer who worked at the Mathematisch Centrum, Amsterdam and then at Electrologica with Adriaan van Wijngaarden, Carel S. Scholten and Gerrit Blaauw.
The Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (abbr. CWI; English: "National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science") is a research center in the field of mathematics and theoretical computer science.
The Computer Pioneer Award was established in 1981 by the Board of Governors of the IEEE Computer Society to recognize and honor the vision of those people whose efforts resulted in the creation and continued vitality of the computer industry.
In computer science and computer programming, a continuation is an abstract representation of the control state of a computer program.
Cornelis Benjamin Biezeno (March 2, 1888, Delft – September 5, 1975, Wageningen) was a Dutch applied mathematician and scientist in engineering mechanics.
Cornelis Hermanus Antonius "Kees" Koster (born 13 July 1943 - 21 March 2013) was a Dutch computer scientist who was a professor in the Department of Informatics at the Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands.
David John Wheeler FRS (9 February 1927 – 13 December 2004) was a computer scientist and professor of computer science at the University of Cambridge.
Delft University of Technology (Technische Universiteit Delft) also known as TU Delft, is the largest and oldest Dutch public technological university, located in Delft, Netherlands.
Edsger Wybe Dijkstra (11 May 1930 – 6 August 2002) was a Dutch systems scientist, programmer, software engineer, science essayist, and early pioneer in computing science.
N.V. Electrologica was a pioneering Dutch computer manufacturer from 1956 to 1968, when it was taken over by Philips.
The electronic delay storage automatic calculator (EDSAC) was an early British computer.
FLACC is an implementation of the ALGOL 68 programming language.
Harry Douglas Huskey (January 19, 1916 – April 9, 2017) was an American computer design pioneer.
IFIP Working Group 2.1 on Algorithmic Languages and Calculi is a working group of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP).
Jacobus "Koos" Verhoeff (20 February 1927 – 19 March 2018) was a Dutch mathematician, computer scientist, and artist.
John Charles Butcher (born 31 March 1933) is a New Zealand mathematician who specialises in numerical methods for the solution of ordinary differential equations.
This is a list of computer scientists, people who do work in computer science, in particular researchers and authors.

This is a list of International Congresses of Mathematicians Plenary and Invited Speakers.
This article presents a list of individuals who made transformative breakthroughs in the creation, development and imagining of what computers and electronics could do.
This is an incomplete list of TU Delft graduates.
Sir Maurice Vincent Wilkes (26 June 1913 – 29 November 2010) was a British computer scientist who designed and helped build the electronic delay storage automatic calculator (EDSAC), one of the earliest stored program computers and invented microprogramming, a method for using stored-program logic to operate the control unit of a central processing unit's circuits.
Nancy Ann Lynch (born January 19, 1948) is a mathematician, a theorist, and a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Operational semantics is a category of formal programming language semantics in which certain desired properties of a program, such as correctness, safety or security, are verified by constructing proofs from logical statements about its execution and procedures, rather than by attaching mathematical meanings to its terms (denotational semantics).
In programming, operator overloading, sometimes termed operator ad hoc polymorphism, is a specific case of polymorphism, where different operators have different implementations depending on their arguments.
In mathematics, orthogonality is the generalization of the notion of perpendicularity to the linear algebra of bilinear forms.
Persi Warren Diaconis (born January 31, 1945) is an American mathematician of Greek descent and former professional magician.
Peter van Emde Boas (born 3 April 1945, Amsterdam) is a Dutch computer scientist and professor at the University of Amsterdam.
A playoff beard is the superstitious practice of male athletes not shaving their beards during the playoffs.
Reinder Pieter (Reind) van de Riet (22 April 1939, Groningen – 18 December 2008, Baarn) was a Dutch computer scientist and Emeritus Professor Information Systems at the VU University Amsterdam, known for the development of COLOR-X, a linguistically-based event modeling language for object modeling.
This is a record of historically important programming languages, by decade.
Van Wijngaarden is a Dutch toponymic surname meaning "from Wijngaarden", a town in South Holland.
In computer science, a Van Wijngaarden grammar (also vW-grammar or W-grammar) is a two-level grammar which provides a technique to define potentially infinite context-free grammars in a finite number of rules.
In mathematics and numerical analysis, in order to accelerate convergence of an alternating series, Euler's transform can be computed as follows.
