Atomistic Computer Simulations
Many books explain the theory of atomistic computer simulations; this book teaches you how to run them
This introductory "how to" title enables readers to understand, plan, run, and analyze their own independent atomistic simulations, and decide which method to use and which questions to ask in their research project. It is written in a clear and precise language, focusing on a thorough understanding of the concepts behind the equations and how these are used in the simulations. As a result, readers will learn how to design the computational model and which parameters of the simulations are essential, as well as being able to assess whether the results are correct, find and correct errors, and extract the relevant information from the results. Finally, they will know which information needs to be included in their publications.
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/.
Performance And Reliability Analysis Of Computer Systems
Performance and Reliability Analysis of Computer Systems: An Example-Based Approach Using the SHARPE Software Package provides a variety of probabilistic, discrete-state models used to assess the reliability and performance of computer and communication systems. The models included are combinatorial reliability models (reliability block diagrams, fault trees and reliability graphs), directed, acyclic task precedence graphs, Markov and semi-Markov models (including Markov reward models), product-form queueing networks and generalized stochastic Petri nets. A practical approach to system modeling is followed; all of the examples described are solved and analyzed using the SHARPE tool.
In structuring the book, the authors have been careful to provide the reader with a methodological approach to analytical modeling techniques. These techniques are not seen as alternatives but rather as an integral part of a single process of assessment which, by hierarchically combining results from different kinds of models, makes it possible to use state-space methods for those parts of a system that require them and non-state-space methods for the more well-behaved parts of the system.
The SHARPE (Symbolic Hierarchical Automated Reliability and Performance Evaluator) package is the `toolchest' that allows the authors to specify stochastic models easily and solve them quickly, adopting model hierarchies and very efficient solution techniques. All the models described in the book are specified and solved using the SHARPE language; its syntax is described and the source code of almost all the examples discussed is provided.
Audience: Suitable for use in advanced level courses covering reliability and performance of computer and communications systems and by researchers and practicing engineers whose work involves modeling of system performance and reliability.
Logics In Computer Science
In this monograph we introduce and examine four new temporal logic formalisms that can be used as specification languages for the automated verification of the reliability of hardware and software designs with respect to a desired behavior. The work is organized in two parts. In the first part two logics for computations, the graded computation tree logic and the computation tree logic with minimal model quantifiers are discussed. These have proved to be useful in describing correct executions of monolithic closed systems. The second part focuses on logics for strategies, strategy logic and memoryful alternating-time temporal logic, which have been successfully applied to formalize several properties of interactive plays in multi-entities systems modeled as multi-agent games.
Things Mother Used To Make
Nostalgia has always been a part of cooking, with cooks everywhere trying to recreate the smells and tastes of their home and youth. Lydia Gurney's 1912 ""Things Mother Used to Make"" has this sense of nostalgia at its heart. A native New Englander, the recipes have a bit of a New England leaning, but anyone craving honest-to-goodness American cooking will find a treasure trove of recipes in this volume.
Computers In Translation
For forty years researchers have been attempting to develop systems that would emulate the human translation process. Because natural language makes this such a daunting challenge, machine translation has failed to penetrate the worldwide translation market to any appreciable extent. John Newton places machine translation in its true perspective and fully deals with its current limitations.
"Computers in Translation" is a comprehensive guide to the practical issues surrounding machine translation and computer-based translation tools. Translators, system designers, system operators, and researchers, present the facts about machine translation: its history, its successes, its limitations, and its potential. Three chapters deal with actual machine translation applications, discussing installations including the METEO system used in Canada to translate weather forecasts and weather reports, and the system used in the Foreign Technology Division of the U.S. Air Force. As a guide for non-specialists seeking to broaden theoretical knowledge of the practicalities of machine translation, it will be of particular interest to translators, technical authors, technical publications managers, and students and lecturers in language and linguistics.
