A Guide to Programming in Java Third Edition emphasizes the development of good problem-solving and programming skills in a clear easy-to-understand format. The textbook is written for a variety of Java compilers. It is also written for different student learning styles and effectively uses screen shots of source code generated output and finished projects to strengthen understanding.
This volume presents a programming model, similar to object-oriented programming, that imposes a strict discipline on the form of the constituent objects and interactions among them. Concurrency considerations have been eliminated from the model itself and are introduced only during implementation, thereby freeing programmers from dealing with concurrency explicitly. Moreover, the resulting software designs are typically more modular and easier to analyze than the more traditional ones. Numerous examples illustrate various aspects of the model and reveal that a few simple, integrated features are adequate for designing complex applications. Topics and features: * Presents a simple, easy-to-understand multiprogramming model * Provides extensive development of the underlying theory * Emphasizes program composition, thereby making possible programming of large systems through modular designs * Eliminates explicit concurrency considerations during program design * Supplies efficient implementation schemes for distributed platforms. This book addresses the problem of developing complex distributed applications on wide-area networks, such as the Internet and World Wide Web, by using effective program design principles. Computer scientists, computer engineers, and software engineers will find the book an authoritative guide to large-scale multiprogramming.
"Semantics of Programming Languages "exposes the basic motivations and philosophy underlying the applications of semantic techniques in computer science. It introduces the mathematical theory of programming languages with an emphasis on higher-order functions and type systems. Designed as a text for upper-level and graduate-level students, the mathematically sophisticated approach will also prove useful to professionals who want an easily referenced description of fundamental results and calculi. Basic connections between computational behavior, denotational semantics, and the equational logic of functional programs are thoroughly and rigorously developed. Topics covered include models of types, operational semantics, category theory, domain theory, fixed point (denotational). semantics, full abstraction and other semantic correspondence criteria, types and evaluation, type checking and inference, parametric polymorphism, and subtyping. All topics are treated clearly and in depth, with complete proofs for the major results and numerous exercises.
This book presents a novel approach to neural nets and thus offers a genuine alternative to the hitherto known neuro-computers. The new edition includes a section on transformation properties of the equations of the synergetic computer and on the invariance properties of the order parameter equations. Further additions are a new section on stereopsis and recent developments in the use of pulse-coupled neural nets for pattern recognition.
This book celebratesthe 25th anniversaryof GULP-the Italian Associationfor LogicProgramming.Authored by Italian researchersat the leading edge of their ?elds, it presents an up-to-date survey of a broad collection of topics in logic programming, making it a useful reference for both researchers and students. During its 25-year existence, GULP has organised a wide range of national and international activities, including both conferences and summer schools. It has been especially active in supporting and encouraging young researchers, by providing scholarships for GULP events and awarding distinguished disser- tions. WeintheinternationallogicprogrammingcommunitylookuponGULPwith a combination of envy, admiration and gratitude. We are pleased to attend its conferences and summer schools, where we can learn about scienti?c advances, catch up with old friends and meet young students. It is an honour for me to acknowledge our appreciation to GULP for its outstanding contributions to our ?eld and to express our best wishes for its continuing prosperity in the future. March 2010 Robert Kowalski Imperial College London Preface On June 18, 1985, a group of pioneering researchers, including representatives from industry, national research labs, and academia, attended the constituent assembly of the Group of researchers and Users of Logic Programming (GULP) association. That was the starting point of a long adventure in science, that 1 we are still experiencing 25 years later. This volume celebrates this important event.
