Precis

Multivac is the name of a fictional supercomputer in many stories by Isaac Asimov. According to his autobiography In Memory Yet Green, Asimov coined the name in imitation of UNIVAC, an early mainframe computer. While he initially intended the name to stand for "Multiple vacuum tubes", his later short story "The Last Question" expands the AC suffix to be "analog computer".
