Understanding its subsequent development may weIl involve keeping those histories in mind and looking for their continuing influence. At each point of convergence the nascent field acquired a set of tools from an antecedent discipline. One may ask what those tools were originally developed to accomplish, how their application to computing contributed to shaping the new subject, to what extent the application in turn reshaped the tools or redefined their status in the parent discipline. An example is the new mathematical interest acquired by finite Boolean algebras as a result of their application to questions of the minimization and optimization of sequential circuits.
