DIJKSTRA - BREAKTHROUGHS

Burroughs Corporation (1973 - 1984)

Descriptions of concepts

Burroughs and total freedom

In 1973 Dijkstra became a Research Fellow for Burroughs, and he reduced his work for the Eindhoven TH to an extraordinary chair. These decisions enabled him to produce scientific reports, of which he wrote over 500 for Burroughs, and to travel abroad at will. He was a free man and had the smallest laboratory of the company: his study.
