What one shall do is to name the things.
One shall call them by their names.
I name the eye.
I name the foot, I name my dog's head on my knees.
I name the knees ... naming.
That is all. That is enough.

This booklet contains a bibliography of the scientific and technical
writings of Peter Naur. We have included a short biography, quoting the
document presented with the Computer Pioneer Award of the IEEE Computer
Society for Peter Naur in 1986, and given a survey of Peter Naur's
contributions to the field of computer science or datalogi, as we say in
Denmark. We hope the bibliography will help more people to get acquainted
with the writings of Peter Naur.
We thank Peter Naur and librarian Birthe Hougaard from the Institute of
Datalogy at Copenhagen University (DIKU) for help with the references. As
many of the writings can be difficult to get hold of, we have assembled an
almost complete set of copies placed at the library of DIKU.
E. Sveinsdottir and E. Frøkjær
Peter Naur was born in Frederiksberg near Copenhagen, Denmark, on October
25, 1928. While still in high school, he developed an interest in
astronomy, and with the guidance of the staff of the Copenhagen University
Observatory worked on calculations of the orbits of comets and minor
planets. He began his academic studies at Copenhagen University in 1947,
getting his mag. scient. degree in Astronomy in 1949.
He spent the year 1950-51 as Research Student at King's College, Cambridge,
England. There he designed a program for the EDSAC for calculating the
perturbed motions of minor planets. The years 1952-53 was spent in the USA,
with visits to a number of astronomical observatories and computer
development laboratories, followed by a second stay at Cambridge, England.
From 1953 to 1959 he was scientific assistant at Copenhagen Observatory,
and also served as consultant in the areas of assembly language and
debugging aids to the independent computer laboratory, Regnecentralen, on
the development of the first Danish computer, Dask. He received his Ph.D.
in Astronomy in 1957.
Dr. Naur joined the staff of Regnecentralen in 1959 to specialize in the
area of high level languages and then became heavily involved in the
international development of Algol 60. He organized the Algol Bulletin and
became one of the thirteen international scientists who produced the final
design of Algol 60 in 1960. He was appointed editor of the group's report
on the language, Report on the Algorithmic Language ALGOL 60.
As member of the compiler design group of Regnecentralen, Dr. Naur
contributed to the design of compilers for Algol 60 and Cobol characterized
by their effective use of multipass techniques. This experience led to an
interest in the basic principles of data processing, and the book, Concise
Survey of Computer Methods, published in 1974.
In more recent years he has been active in studying program development as
a human activity, retaining a sceptical attitude towards the claims made
for methods and formalizations in this field.
He has been co-editor of the Nordic journal BIT since its start in 1960.
Dr. Naur also served as president of Dansk Selskab for Datalogi until 1982
since its founding in 1966, and he was co-editor of the report on the first
conference on Software Engineering in 1968.
Since 1969 Peter Naur has been professor at the Copenhagen University
Institute of Datalogy.
He was honored with the G. A. Hagemann Medal in 1963, the Jens Rosenkjær
Prize in 1966, and the Computer Pioneer Award of the IEEE Computer Society
Quotation from the document presented with
the Computer Pioneer Award of the IEEE Computer Society in 1986.
On the Contributions of Peter Naur to the Computer Field
Peter Naur has over the years brought outstanding contributions to the
computer field, especially within software development methodology and
language design. Through his research he has deepened our understanding of
computing and reached a number of practical results of lasting importance.
First Peter Naur's contribution to the development of the Algol language
should be emphasized. The importance of the Algol 60 development in the
history of computer science is indisputable, Algol 60 representing a
milestone in the development of programming languages, both in terms of
concepts introduced and the use of a formal notation for syntax, now known
as the Backus-Naur form (BNF), introduced by J.W. Backus and given a final
form in the Report on the Algorithmic Language ALGOL 60 . Most
theoretical and much practical language and compiler work since 1960 has
been based on Algol 60. Let us call Peter Naur's special contribution to
this development to mind through John Backus's expression at a conference
in 1978 on the history of programming languages: "One last thing I'd like
to add is that Peter Naur's conduct of the Algol Bulletin and his
incredible preparation for that Paris meeting in which Algol was all
written down already in his notebook - he changed it a little bit in
accordance with the wishes of the committee, but it was that stuff that
really made Algol the language that it is, and it wouldn't have even come
about, I don't think, had he not done that." 
When Algol 60 was produced Peter Naur was a computer-oriented astronomer,
recently switched fully to computing. The design of Algol 60 was followed
immediately by his participation at Regnecentralen in the development of
compilers, for Algol 60, in several versions, for several computers, during
the years 1960 to 1967, and for Cobol during 1963-65. Also this work is of
a pioneering character. The Gier-Algol compiler - called a masterpiece by
E. W. Dijkstra - was based on viable ideas, such as automatic storage
allocation during program execution (later known as paging), multipass
translation, and pseudoevaluation of expressions . A number of
brilliant programmers and scientists were brought up at this outstanding
programming milieu at Regnecentralen, among others Per Brinch Hansen [I,II].
Building upon this experience, from about 1965 Naur saw the solutions
developed by the group at Regnecentralen as examples of methods of wider
applicability. Hence originated the text, written in 1966, of Plan for et
kursus i datalogi og datamatik , a paper given at IFIP 1968 ,
repeated by invitation at ACM'68 National Conference, and the book, from
1974, Concise Survey of Computer Methods . Naur's notion of computer
science, understood as the science of the nature and use of data, more
properly denoted datalogy, was original and contemporary with other early
attempts to identify the new field. Thus G. Forsythe [III] was in line with
Naur when emphasizing the importance of extracting and teaching the essence
of computer science. Naur's ideas became directly effective when an
independent curriculum of datalogy was established at Copenhagen
University, where a chair of datalogy was set up in 1969, with Naur as the
first professor, by invitation. This tradition of computer science
education is characteristic, first and foremost, by its maintenance of
close connection with applications and other fields of knowledge.
Comprehensive project activity is an integral part of the curriculum, thus
presenting theory as an aspect of realistic solutions known primarily
through actual experience obtained under active guidance from researchers
and more advanced students. Under sometimes hard conditions a vigorous and
effective computer science educational milieu with obvious professional
qualities has been created. An account of the ideas behind datalogy as it
has been practiced at the Copenhagen University Institute of Datalogy is
given in [IV].
However, in Naur's view this approach to computer science can be difficult
to maintain. Though highly problematic, a widening split between the more
academic, pure computer science oriented study of programming languages and
the world of practical programming can be expected to persist indefinitely.
Such problems among others are closely treated in . Here Naur gives a
suggestive illumination of some social aspects of programming, drawing on
similar historical experiences within natural languages and mathematics,
the two closest relatives to programming among the intellectual disciplines.
For Naur an all-pervasive theme has been the study of programming and
system development conceived as a human activity. This orientation is
visible in his early contributions to the understanding of problems and
techniques in program construction and verification. A fine example is The
Place of Programming in a World of Problems, Tools and People, presented at
the IFIP Congress 1965 . Again we find original views from Peter Naur.
In 1963, before anybody else, he wrote about a number of unfavourable
effects of the unrestricted use of go to statements . Donald Knuth
tells the story in his paper Structured programming with go to statements
[V]. Naur was among the first to realize the need for more reliable and
maintainable programming. In the paper Proof of algorithms by general
snapshots  the fundamental technique of invariants in program
verification was discussed under Naur's term general snapshots; according
to D. Gries actually the first article on proving programs correct [VI]. In
close relation to the proof problem, the problem of program construction
gave rise to the suggestion by Naur  that in order to establish the
connection between the requirements to be satisfied by the program and the
program itself, it should be possible to join logically related statements
together to form action clusters. For this to be done effectively, the
programming language should include special clauses for delimiting the
clusters. This is a line of work that David L. Parnas and N. Wirth have
developed through their ideas on modular programming.
Peter Naur has also contributed to a deeper understanding of the serious
and varied problems connected to design, production and service of large
software systems, now treated under the term software engineering - a term
coined at the conference in Garmisch Partenkirchen held in October 1968
. This conference created a sensation by the first open admission of
the software crisis, as mentioned by Dijkstra [VII].
Still to day our profession has serious problems in meeting the demands for
more and better software systems. According to Naur we shall not expect
these difficulties to be overcome mainly through new methods in software
development. This is one of the conclusions in the paper Programming as
Theory Building, where a thorough treatment of programming viewed as a
human activity is given . Instead the key issue in programming
".. is to have the programmers build a theory of the way the matters at
hand may be supported by the execution of a program. Such a view leads to a
notion of program life that depends on the continued support of the program
by programmers having its theory. Further, on this view the notion of a
programming method, understood as a set of rules of procedure to be
followed by the programmer, is based on invalid assumptions and so has to
be rejected. As further consequences of the view, programmers have to be
accorded the status of responsible, permanent developers and managers of
the activity of which the computer is a part, and their education has to
emphasize the exercise of theory building, side by side with the
acquisition of knowledge of data processing and notations." 
It is on this fundamental view on programming, founded in a number of
empirical studies of programmers [270, 296, 304, 322], that Peter Naur has
based his penetrating critique of central topics within computer science.
Here we emphasize the following:
* The ideas on structured programming as they were originally put
forward by E. W. Dijkstra and N. Wirth. To Naur the ideas didn't seem right
as a guidance for the programmer during problem solving. Program
development styles should allow for personality factors and Naur asked for
more observations . In 1976 Peter J. Denning was able to give the
subject a more complete treatment [VIII].
* The different proposals of software life-cycle models. As an
alternative Naur points to an approach where the development problems of
large data systems are regarded as primarily one of overall design to be
obtained through an experimental attitude .
* The widespread expectations in the scientific community to formal
methods as an answer to the continued problems in software development.
Naur emphasizes that only formal specifications which contribute by
supporting the intuitive understanding of the matter at hand can be
recommended [302, 315].
* The notion often found within artificial intelligence research or
cognitive science that the human mind works in a rule governed manner like
an information processor. This leads to naive expectations of the
possibilities to control or replace human activity by computers [313, 316].
