This Millennium Boxed Set -- five elegantly printed books that describe their own method of creation -- celebrates Donald E. Knuth's monumental coupling of programming and typography in the TeX and METAFONT systems that are used worldwide by scientists, mathematicians, and others to produce high-quality, aesthetically pleasing text. Originally published in 1986, each volume has changed so much in subsequent printings that nearly every page has been touched. The improvements reflect new developments in digital printing technology; as well as corrections submitted by thousands of volunteers -- making these volumes the most accurate versions yet published. For readers who own earlier printings of Knuth's books, or have holes in their collections, the Millennium Boxed Set makes updating easy. For those who own none of the books, the boxed set is a convenient way to get them all at once.
Multithreaded computer architecture has emerged as one of the most promising and exciting avenues for the exploitation of parallelism. This new field represents the confluence of several independent research directions which have united over a common set of issues and techniques. Multithreading draws on recent advances in dataflow, RISC, compiling for fine-grained parallel execution, and dynamic resource management. It offers the hope of dramatic performance increases through parallel execution for a broad spectrum of significant applications based on extensions to `traditional' approaches.
This book presents practical optimization techniques used in image processing and computer vision problems. Ill-posed problems are introduced and used as examples to show how each type of problem is related to typical image processing and computer vision problems. Unconstrained optimization gives the best solution based on numerical minimization of a single, scalar-valued objective function or cost function. Unconstrained optimization problems have been intensively studied, and many algorithms and tools have been developed to solve them. Most practical optimization problems, however, arise with a set of constraints. Typical examples of constraints include: (i) pre-specified pixel intensity range, (ii) smoothness or correlation with neighboring information, (iii) existence on a certain contour of lines or curves, and (iv) given statistical or spectral characteristics of the solution. Regularized optimization is a special method used to solve a class of constrained optimization problems. The term regularization refers to the transformation of an objective function with constraints into a different objective function, automatically reflecting constraints in the unconstrained minimization process. Because of its simplicity and efficiency, regularized optimization has many application areas, such as image restoration, image reconstruction, optical flow estimation, etc.
From twinkle in your eye to warranty work, this book is your guide to masterfully handling car-buying to get the most for your money. Beat the car salesmen at their own game?--that's a setup. Books by car salesmen are aimed at getting you within their grasp. Like tennis, it's not possible for a beginner to beat them at their game. Instead, step by step directions on how to get the best price by playing your own game-and then make that price stick to the end! How to use your most powerful tool for getting the best price -- your phone. Do you know it's legal to take home all the paperwork and bring it back signed, not do it in their lair? Do you know the biological reason test driving and buying should be done on different days? Books by salesmen won't tell you these things. This book lays out your options for car loans, leasing and car insurance when buying a new-to-you vehicle. Find out the incredibly easy way to save $1500 on a used car-and 6 years later it will make no difference in trade-in value. Think used car-buying is about avoiding the lemons? That's another dealer trick; there are no more lemons. Dealerships perpetuate that myth to scare you out of phoning for a price. An engine designer and mechanic shares why understanding routine maintenance and Incidence of Repair charts are all you need to pick a good vehicle. The last few pages give you the easy way to find a good mechanic.
Many books explain the theory of atomistic computer simulations; this book teaches you how to run them
This book includes checklists for planning projects, analyzing output files, and for troubleshooting, as well as pseudo keywords and case studies.
The authors provide an accompanying blog for the book with worked examples, and additional material and references: http://www.atomisticsimulations.org/.
