Mathematician and software developer, outstanding member of the Institute, at present honorary member
(see more on the foundation of the Cluj-Napoca IT; ITC history – soon).

He activated at the Institute between 1960-1968, having a major contribution in the elaboration of the software of the first Romanian electronic computers:

  • the first mathematical library (for the elementary math. functions – sin, cos, exp, etc), in machine code, for the DACICC-1 computer (1963);
  • the first compiler in Romania, for the DACICC-200 computer (1968).

He activated in the software field at the Institute for Computer Research (Institutul pentru Tehnica de Calcul – ITC). He is the author of some well appreciated manuals of programming (in C, C++, C#, etc).

He is coauthor of the first manuals of computer science in Romania (1971), which were used several years at the four highschools founded in Romania (in Bucharest, Iaşi, Cluj-Napoca and Timişoara). He was (together with dr. Emil Muntean, dr. Augustin Prodan and Teodor Vuşcan) in the team of researchers detached to teach computer science at the newly founded highschool from Cluj-Napoca.

The mathematical papers published at the Institute allow us to state that he is also a member of the Cluj Team on Numerical Analysis and Approximation Theory.

He is one of the computer pioneers in Cluj-Napoca and in Romania.

The documentation for the first Romanian compiler, DACICC-FORTRAN, designed for the DACICC-200 computer.

The computer was designed and built at the Institute, between 1966-1968, and finalized at the newly founded Institute for Computer Research – Institutul pentru Tehnică de Calcul ITC (which beared the first years the name on the cover).

ITC was founded by the transfer of the Computing Machinery section from ICTP.

Liviu Negrescu is coauthor (together with dr. Emil Muntean, Augustin Prodan and Teodor Vuşcan) of one of the first Romanian manuals on Computer Science for pupils, in 1973.

Liviu Negrescu is known for several books on introduction to Computer Science (C, C++ and C# languages):

  • L. Negrescu, Limbajele C si C++ pentru incepatori
  • L. Negrescu, L. Negrescu, Limbajul C# pentru incepatori
  • L. Negrescu, L. Negrescu, Construirea si programarea robotilor
