  • SVG Essentials (Softcover)

    SVG Essentials (Softcover)

    Scalar Vector Graphics—or SVG— is the new XML-based graphics standard from the W3C that will enable web documents to be smaller, faster, and more interactive. J. David Eisenberg's insightful book takes you through the ins and outs of SVG, beginning with basics needed to create simple line drawings and then moving through more complicated features such as filters, transformations, and integration with Java, PERL, and XSLT.—from the back cover

  • Ant Colony Optimization (Hardback)

    $23.95

    "The complex social behaviors of ants have been much studied by science, and computer scientists are now finding that these behavior patterns can provide models for solving difficult combinatorial optimization problems." — From the back cover

  • Term Rewriting and All That (Hardback)

    Term Rewriting and All That (Hardback)

    $92.89

    "This is the first English language textbook offering a unified and self-contained introduction to the field of term rewriting.

  • Categories and Computer Science (Softcover)

    Categories and Computer Science (Softcover)

    $36.49

    "Category theory has, in recent years, become increasingly important and popular in computer science, and many universities now have introductions to category theory as part of their courses for undergraduate computer scientists. The author is a respected category theorist and has based this textbook on a course given over the last few years at the University of Sydney." — From the back cover

  • Direct Methods for Sparse Linear Systems (Softcover)

    Direct Methods for Sparse Linear Systems (Softcover)

    $53.95

    "Overall, the book is magnificent. It fills a long-felt need for an accessible textbook on modern sparse direct methods. Its choice of scope is excellent." — John Gilbert, Professor, Department of Computer Science, University of California, Santa Barbara (as quoted on the back cover)

  • Iterative Error Correction: Turbo, Low-Density Parity-Check and Repeat-Accumulate Codes (Hardback)

    $35.97

    "Iterative error correction codes have found widespread application in cellular communications, digital broadcasting, deep space communications, and wireless LANs. This self-contained treatment of iterative error correction presents all the key ideas needed to understand, design, implement, and analyze these powerful codes." — From the back cover

  • The Little Schemer, Fourth Edition (Softcover)

    The Little Schemer, Fourth Edition (Softcover)

    $19.75

    This book was formerly known as The Little LISPer and "introduces computing as an extension of arithmetic and algebra—things that everyone studies in grade school and high school." — From the back cover

  • Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, MIT Press Edition (Hardback)

    Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, MIT Press Edition (Hardback)

    $25.99

    "Note that this is a text about programming, unlike most Lisp books, which are used as a preparation for work in artificial intelligence. After all, the critical programming concerns of software engineering and artificial intelligence tend to coalesce as the systems under investigation become larger. This explains why there is such growing interest in Lisp outside of artificial intelligence." — From the Foreword by Alan J. Perlis (page xiv)

  • Modern Compiler Implementation in ML, Revised and Expanded Edition (Hardback)

    Modern Compiler Implementation in ML, Revised and Expanded Edition (Hardback)

    $92.95

    "This textbook describes all phases of a modern compiler: lexical analysis, parsing, abstract syntax, semantic actions, intermediate representations, instruction selection via tree matching, dataflow analysis, graph-coloring register allocation, and runtime systems." — From the back cover

  • Paradigms of Artificial Intelligence Programming: Case Studies in Common Lisp (Softcover)

    Paradigms of Artificial Intelligence Programming: Case Studies in Common Lisp (Softcover)

    $31.49

    "This volume is an excellent text for a course on AI programming, a useful supplement for general AI courses and an indispensable reference for the professional programmer." — From the back cover

  • Texts and Monographs in Computer Science: A Logical Approach to Discrete Math (Hardback)

    Texts and Monographs in Computer Science: A Logical Approach to Discrete Math (Hardback)

    $5.99

    "Logic is the glue that binds together arguments and proofs in all domains. This text aims to teach the use of this fundamental and pervasive tool and exercise it thoroughly in applications that arise in computer science and mathematics." — From the back cover

  • Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition (Softcover)

    Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition (Softcover)

    $44.95

    "This book is aimed at researchers in neural computing as well as those wishing to apply neural networks to practical applications. It is also intended to be used as the primary text for a graduate-level, or advanced undergraduate-level course on neural networks. In this case the book should be used sequentially, and care has been taken to ensure that where possible the material in any particular chapter depends only on concepts developed in earlier chapters." — From the Preface (page x)

  • Texts and Monographs in Computer Science: The Science of Programming (Softcover)

    Texts and Monographs in Computer Science: The Science of Programming (Softcover)

    $9.99

    "One cannot learn to write large programs effectively until one has learned to write small ones effectively." — David Gries, Author, in the Preface

  • Iterative Methods for Sparse Linear Systems, Second Edition (Softcover)

    Iterative Methods for Sparse Linear Systems, Second Edition (Softcover)

    $73.95

    "This book can be used to teach graduate-level courses on iterative methods for linear systems. Engineers and mathematicians will find its contents easily accessible, and practitioners and educators will value it as a helpful resource. The preface includes syllabi that can be used for either a semester- or quarter-length course in both mathematics and computer science." — From the back cover

  • Introduction to Information Theory and Data Compression (Hardback)

    "This textbook is aimed at graduate students and upper level undergraduates in mathematics, engineering, and computer science." — From the Preface

  • Design for Reliability: Information and Computer-Based Systems (Hardback)

    Design for Reliability: Information and Computer-Based Systems (Hardback)

    $47.25

    "This book takes a very pragmatic approach of framing reliability and robustness as concrete, functional attributes of a system, rather than abstract non-functional notions." — From the back cover

  • Systems Programming (Hardback)

    Systems Programming (Hardback)

    $4.99

    "In this book we address ourselves to the full spectrum of systems programming endeavors, including the use and implementation of assemblers, macros, loaders, compilers, and operating systems." — Preface, 1972

  • Performance Analysis of Local Computer Networks (Hardback)

    Performance Analysis of Local Computer Networks (Hardback)

    $12.95

    "This is the first book to present a unified and self-contained treatment of local networks from the perspective of performance analysis. The performance models discussed are developed in as elementary a manner as possible, often using a heuristic rather than a rigorous approach." — About the Book, Dust Jacket

  • Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - First Edition (Hardback)

    Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - First Edition (Hardback)

    $4.29

    "The usefulness of switching theory is not restricted to engineers actively engaged in computer design. In fact, it is our contention that almost every design engineer in the field of electronics will have some opportunity to draw on the subject. Applications occur whenever information in communication, control, or instrumentation systems, for example, is handled in other than analog form." — Frederick J. Hill and Gerald R. Peterson, Authors

  • Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - Third Edition (Hardback)

    Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - Third Edition (Hardback)

    $4.99

    "In the field of digital computers, there is an area somewhere between circuit design and system formulation which is usually identified as switching theory. Although this topic must be mastered by the digital computer engineer, it does not answer all of the questions concerning layout of an efficient digital computing system. The remaining questions, which are less susceptible to formalization, may be grouped under the heading 'Digital System Theory.'" — F. J. Hill and G. R. Peterson, Authors
