A Short Course in Computational Science and Engineering: by David Yevick

By David Yevick

Development on his hugely winning textbook on C++, David Yevick presents a concise but accomplished one-stop direction in 3 key programming languages, C++, Java and Octave (a freeware substitute to MATLAB). utilising basically public-domain software program, this e-book provides a special evaluation of numerical and programming suggestions, together with object-oriented programming, straight forward and complex issues in numerical research, actual approach modelling, medical pix, software program engineering and function matters. Compact, obvious code in all 3 programming languages is utilized to the basic equations of quantum mechanics, electromagnetics, mechanics and statistical mechanics. Uncommented models of the code that may be instantly transformed and tailored are supplied on-line for the extra concerned courses. This compact, sensible textual content is a useful creation for college students in all undergraduate- and graduate-level classes within the actual sciences or engineering that require numerical modelling, and in addition a key reference for teachers and medical programmers

Attribute Grammars: Definitions, Systems and Bibliography

Characteristic Grammars have become probably the most primary formalisms of contemporary computing device technology. considering the fact that 1968 whilst Knuth brought the elemental recommendations, they've been the topic of a really great amount of literature, proving the significance of the world and the vast diversity of its functions. the purpose of the e-book is to place on the disposal of researchers and scholars, but additionally of engineers attracted to purposes, crucial definitions and effects identified so far during this younger area.

ActionScript Developer's Guide to PureMVC

Achieve hands-on adventure with PureMVC, the preferred open resource framework for constructing maintainable purposes with a Model-View-Controller structure. during this concise advisor, PureMVC author Cliff corridor teaches the basics of PureMVC improvement by means of jogging you thru the development of a whole non-trivial Adobe AIR program.

Conquering Complexity

Software program has lengthy been perceived as complicated, no less than inside of software program Engineering circles. we've got been dwelling in a regarded kingdom of predicament because the first NATO software program Engineering convention in 1968. again and again now we have been confirmed not able to engineer trustworthy software program as easily/cheaply as we imagined.

CodeIgniter for Rapid PHP Application Development: Improve your PHP coding productivity with the free compact open-source MVC CodeIgniter framework!

CodeIgniter (CI) is a robust open-source personal home page framework with a really small footprint, equipped for Hypertext Preprocessor coders who desire a easy and chic toolkit to create full-featured internet purposes. CodeIgniter is an MVC framework, comparable in many ways to the Rails framework for Ruby, and is designed to let, no longer weigh down.

Sample text

To avoid the obvious complexity of machine-language programming, assembly language instead represents a CPU instruction as a three-letter mnemonic. These mnemonics are translated into an object file containing a binary representation of the CPU commands by the assembler. The linker combines separate object files that may originate from different sources, including compiled high-level languages, into a single executable program. out extension or no extension in UNIX and Linux. Finally, the syntax of a high-level language approximates natural language.

Finally, the lowest-precedence comma operator joins two expressions and returns the value of the expression on its right, so that the value of k in the expression k = ( m = 0, n = 1 ); is 1. 6 The bool and enum types Logical false in C++ is represented by any value with all zero bits, otherwise the logical value is true. 0;, char c = '\0'; (which has the numeric, ASCII, value 0 and is called the null character) and the intrinsically defined global constant NULL. 0; char c = d; yields a zero character.

The linker combines separate object files that may originate from different sources, including compiled high-level languages, into a single executable program. out extension or no extension in UNIX and Linux. Finally, the syntax of a high-level language approximates natural language. Procedural languages initially formed a program from a logically sequenced set of statements and procedures such as functions and subroutines that transform input into output data. Object-oriented programming languages instead model the interactions between the underlying physical or abstract objects so that a program describes the object properties and their behavior as time evolves.
