At Bell Telephone Laboratories, mathematician Sidney Darlington
has contributed notably in developing the art of circuit analysis.
... It is essentially a thing of the mind for it works through concepts,
symbols and
relationships.., it helps man to analyze and synthesize the complex phenomena
of the
universe and himself.., it works in many ways to advance electrical communications:
   At Bell Telephone Laboratories, mathematics
works powerfully to solve problems involving com-
plex data. Intriguingly, too, the mathematical ap-
proach: led to the invention of the electric wave
filter.., disclosed a kind of wave transmission
which may some day carry huge amounts of infor-
mation in waveguide systems.., foretold the feasi-
bility of modern quality control.., led to a scientific
technique for determining how many circuits must
be provided for good service without having costly
equipment lie idle.
   For each creative task, Bell Laboratories utilizes
whatever serves best--mathematical analysis, labora-
tory experimentation, simulation with electronic com-
puters. Together they assure the economical advance-
ment of all Bell System communications services.
