  Analog computer - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article
An analog/analogue computer is a form of computer that uses electronic or mechanical phenomena to model the problem being solved by using one kind of physical quantity to represent another.
There is an intermediate group, hybrid computers, in which a digital computer is used to control and organize inputs and outputs to and from attached analog devices; for instance analog devices might be used to help generate initial values for iterations, or the analog computer might be used to solve a non-analytic differential equation problem.
Computations are often performed, in analog computers, by using properties of electrical resistance, voltages and so on.

This narrative presents the major developments in the history of hardware used in computing and tries to put them into perspective.
This statement is justified as Konrad Zuse's 1941 machine used electro-mechanical relays (although the difference seems somewhat irrelevant from a conceptual perspective: a switch is a switch no matter how it is implemented; today we use transistors; tomorrow we'll use optics etc).
