Meteorology and the causes of war
I posted last year about Lewis Fry Richardson, the Quaker mathematician and scientist whose development of Bjerknes's work on weather-forecasting was ahead of its time. It needed the advances in computer technology which occurred after his death to put his techniques into practice. It appears from this recent article that his final work, on predicting conflict, is also going to yield to state-of-the-art IT.
