Building on the successful top-down approach of previous editions, the Fifth Edition of Computer Networking continues with an early emphasis on application-layer paradigms and application programming interfaces, encouraging a hands-on experience with protocols and networking concepts. With this edition, Kurose and Ross have revised and modernized treatment of some key chapters to integrate the most current and relevant networking technologies. Networking today involves much more than standards specifying message formats and protocol behaviors?and it is far more interesting. Professors Kurose and Ross focus on describing emerging principles in a lively and engaging manner and then illustrate these principles with examples drawn from Internet architecture.

He examines the nuts and bolts of design processes, including budget constraints of many kinds, aesthetics, design empiricism, and tools, and grounds this discussion in his own real-world examples?case studies ranging from home construction to IBM's Operating System/360. Throughout, Brooks reveals keys to success that every designer, design project manager, and design researcher should know.

Who are these people, what motivates them, and why should you care? Consider these facts: Everything around us is turning into computers. Your typewriter is gone, replaced by a computer. Your phone has turned into a computer. So has your camera. Soon your TV will. Your car was not only designed on computers, but has more processing power in it than a room-sized mainframe did in 1970. Letters, encyclopedias, newspapers, and even your local store are being replaced by the Internet. "Hackers & Painters: Big Ideas from the Computer Age," by Paul Graham, explains this world and the motivations of the people who occupy it. In clear, thoughtful prose that draws on illuminating historical examples, Graham takes readers on an unflinching exploration into what he calls "an intellectual Wild West." The ideas discussed in this book will have a powerful and lasting impact on how we think, how we work, how we develop technology, and how we live. Topics include the importance of beauty in software design, how to make wealth, heresy and free speech, the programming language renaissance, the open-source movement, digital design, internet startups, and more. And here's a taste of what you'll find in "Hackers & Painters": "In most fields the great work is done early on. The paintings madebetween 1430 and1500 are still unsurpassed. Shakespeare appeared just as professional theater was being born, and pushed the medium so far that every playwright since has had to live in his shadow. Albrecht Durer did the same thing with engraving, and Jane Austen with the novel.

Product Category: Media > Books Product Brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Art of Computer Programming, Volume 1, Fascicle 1: MMIX -- A RISC Comp $15.26 This multivolume work is widely recognized as the definitive description of classical computer science. The first three volumes have for decades been an invaluableresource in programming theory and practice for students, researchers, and practitioners alike. Countless readers have spoken about the profound personal influence of Knuth's work. Scientists have marveled at the beauty and elegance of his analysis, while ordinary programmers have successfully applied his "cookbook" solutions to their day-to-day problems. All have admired Knuth for the breadth, clarity, accuracy, and good humor found in his books. Primarily written as a reference, if you need to do any serious computer programming, you will find your own good reason to make each volume from beginning to end. A programmer in China even compared the experience to reading a poem. Whatever your background, if you need to do any serious computer programming, you will find your own good reason to make each volume in this series a readily accessible part of your scholarly or professional library. For the first time in more than 20 years, Knuth has revised all three books to reflect more recent developments in the field. His revisions focus specifically on those areas where knowledge has converged since publication of the last editions, on problems that have been solved, on problems that have changed. In keeping with the authoritative character of these books, all historical infomation about previous work in the field has been updated where necessary. Consistent with the author's reputation for painstaking perfection, the rare technical errors in his work, discovered by perceptive and demandingreaders, have all been corrected. Hundreds of new exercises have beeen added to raise new challenges. A word from Don Knuth: For the past 20 years I've been making copious notes in my personal copies of The Art of Computer Programming, whenever I've noticed how those books could be made better. Finally the time is ripe to typeset those books from scratch, using the tools of digital typography that I worked on during the 1980s. The new editions incorporate literally thousands of improvements, including hundreds of instructive new exercises and answers to exercises. I think most readers will enjoy these new things as much as I did when I first learned them. I've been especially careful to include any new historical details that have come to my attention, and to provide up-to-date information about all the research problems stated in previous editions. Computer Science has been changing and growing at a fantastic rate, yet I believe nearly everything in The Art of Computer Programming is crucial information that will never become obsolete.

If you thought hacking was just about mischief-makers hunched over computers in the basement, think again. As seasoned author Wallace Wang explains, hacking can also mean questioning the status quo, looking for your own truths, and never accepting at face value anything authorities say or do. The completely revised fourth edition of this offbeat, non-technical book examines what hackers do, how they do it, and how you can protect yourself. Written in the same informative, irreverent, and entertaining style that made the first three editions hugely successful," Steal This Computer Book 4.0" will expand your mind and raise your eyebrows. New chapters discuss the hacker mentality, social engineering and lock picking, exploiting P2P file-sharing networks, and how people manipulate search engines and pop-up ads to obtain and use personal information. Wang also takes issue with the media for "hacking" the news and presenting the public with self-serving stories of questionable accuracy. Inside, you'll discover: How to manage and fight spam and spyware How Trojan horse programs and rootkits work, and how to defend against them How hackers steal software and defeat copy-protection mechanisms How to tell if your machine is being attacked and what you can do to protect it Where the hackers are, how they probe a target and sneak into a computer, and what they do once they get inside How corporations use hacker techniques to infect your computer and invade your privacy How you can lock down your computer to protect your data and your personal information using free programs included on the book's CD If you ve ever logged ontoawebsite, conducted an online transaction, sent or received email, used a networked computer, or even watched the evening news, you may have already been tricked, tracked, hacked, and manipulated. As the saying goes, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you. And, as Wallace Wang reveals, they probably are.

Beneath all the enormously different styles of modern electronic music lie certain fundamentals of the musical language that are exactly the same no matter what kind of music you write. It is very important to acquire an understanding of these fundamentals if you are to develop as a musician and music producer. Put simply, you need to know what you are doing with regard to the music that you are writing. Music Theory for Computer Musicians explains these music theory fundamentals in the most simple and accessible way possible. Concepts are taught using the MIDI keyboard environment and today's computer composing and recording software. By reading this book and following the exercises contained within it, you, the aspiring music producer/computer musician, will find yourself making great progress toward understanding and using these fundamentals of the music language. The result will be a great improvement in your ability to write and produce your own original music! Product Category: Media > Sheet Music Product Brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Harmony for Computer Musicians $19.24 Home music producers now have access to a wide variety of software synthesizers, samplers, and FX devices on their computers ? devices that had previously been available only in expensive hardware forms. Although computer musicians often show a high degree of skill and expertise with the technology they use to produce their music, many mistakenly assume that this is all they need to produce quality tracks. Yet there is often a vital ingredient missing: a useful knowledge of the way the language of music actually works ? an understanding of the ingredients of music and how they are put together; what scales, chords, modes, and keys are; and the principles of arrangement, melody, and harmony. In other words, computer musicians may have learned how to use their instruments, but this does not necessarily mean that they know how to create professional-sounding music using those instruments. This book was written to help computer musicians grow in their knowledge of musical harmony, knowledge that is essential for the skilled creation of complex musical works. Topics include intervals, tonality and the key system, part writing, triads, tonic and dominant harmony, modulation, and modal interchange and harmony. Techniques are taught using the tools computer musicians are most familiar with. Rather than using a conventional score format, most of the materials are presented in the familiar piano roll format of computer music sequencing programs. For practice, the companion CD contains numerous short exercises that will considerably improve the musician's skill in the art of musical harmony.

Product Category: Media > Books Product Brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Simply Scheme: Introducing Computer Science $58.80 An introductory-level text for students who are not majoring in computer science as well as for computer science majors with no prior programming experience, Simply Scheme teaches computer science from a functional/symbolic point of view. It provides a solid platform from which students can go on to study the seminal work Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs. Beginners will find the authors' approach sophisticated yet conversational and unintimidating. Using Scheme, a modern dialect of Lisp, they teach fundamental ideas and concepts of computer science -- composition of functions, function as object, recursion, abstraction (data abstraction and procedural abstraction), and sequential (non-functional) techniques -- in a way that avoids confusing technical pitfalls. Interesting nonmathematical programming examples use words and sentences as data; practical examples are represented by miniature spreadsheet and database programs. Simply Scheme devotes five chapters to recursion, presenting distinct ways for readers to think about this watershed idea. There is also a chapter on file input/output, and students are able to work on substantial, realistic programming projects in the first semester. Compared to Pascal- or C-based texts, Simply Scheme has many advantages in its use of the Scheme programming language. Scheme is interactive and allows for ease of program development and debugging; its first-class functions and automatic storage allocation provide a high level of abstraction so that programmers can concentrate on the desired goal instead of on the computer; its simple, uniform syntax doesn't take up months of class time. Simply Scheme differs from other Scheme-based books in its detailed and thorough exploration of the beginning steps in computer science. In addition to its emphasis on recursion, it also explores higher-order procedures and trees in depth, leaving object-oriented programming and the more difficult environment model for a later course. Simply Scheme extends the standard Scheme language with word and sentence data types to make symbolic programming easier for beginners. It also features a series of large sample programs and a series of suggested large programming projects.

If you recognized the name of John Atanasoff, give yourself a hundred points, and that, in a sense is the point of this book: Iowa State University physics professor John Vincent Atanasoff (1903-1995) remains an almost totally unknown pioneer of the digital age and therein lies Smiley's tale. It was in a small-town bar in the late 1930s that the electrical engineer son of an Bulgarian immigrant father hit on the ingenious idea that the binary number system, electronic switches, and capacitors mounted on a moving drum could transform mathematical calculations. His prescient insights were, unfortunately, not patented, but time, as Smiley artfully explains, eventually corrected that oversight.

What can probability theory teach us about free will? Can mathematical notions be used to enhance one's personal understanding of the Bible?Perhaps no one is more qualified to address these questions than Donald E. Knuth, whose massive contributions to computing have led others to nickname him "The Father of Computer Science"?and whose religious faith led him to understand a fascinating analysis of the Bible called the 3:16 project. In this series of six spirited, informal lectures, Knuth explores the relationships between his vocation and his faith, revealing the unique perspective that his work with computing has lent to his understanding of God.His starting point is the 3:16 project, an application of mathematical "random sampling" to the books of the Bible. The first lectures tell the story of the project's conception and execution, exploring its many dimensions of language translation, aesthetics, and theological history. Along the way, Knuth explains the many insights he gained from such interdisciplinary work. These theological musings culminate in a surprising final lecture tackling the ideas of infinity, free will, and some of the other big questions that lie at the juncture of theology and computation.Things a Computer Scientist Rarely Talks About, with its charming and user-friendly format?each lecture ends with a question and answer exchange, and the book itself contains more than 100 illustrations?is a readable and intriguing approach to a crucial topic, certain to edify both those who are serious and curious about their faiths and those who look at the science ofcomputation and wonder what it might teach them about their spiritual world.Includes "Creativity, Spirituality, and Computer Science," a panel discussion featuring Harry Lewis, Guy L.

Ltd., Queensland), Terrance Maguire (cmdLabs), Monique M. Ferraro (Technology Forensics, LLC, Connecticut), Michael McGrath, Christopher Daywalt (cmdLabs)Digital evidence - evidence that is stored on or transmitted by computers - can play a major role in any investigation, including homicide, child exploitation, computer intrusions and corporate malfeasance. The scope of computer crime has expanded further with the proliferation of networks, embedded systems, mobile devices and industrial control systems. Digital evidence from these systems can help establish when events occurred, where victims and suspects were, with whom they communicated, and may even show their intent to commit a crime.Despite the ubiquity of computer-facilitated crime, few people are well-versed in the technical, investigative and legal issues related to digital evidence. As a result, digital evidence is often overlooked, collected incorrectly or analyzed ineffectively.Digital Evidence and Computer Crime, Third Edition is completely updated, providing the knowledge necessary to uncover and use digital evidence effectively in any kind of investigation. The first and second editions introduced thousands of practitioners to this field, and this third edition expands on the material presented in previous editions to help digital forensic practitioners further develop their skills.

The three complete volumes published to date already comprise a unique and invaluable resource in programming theory and practice. Countless readers have spoken about the profound personal influence of Knuth's writings. Scientists have marveled at the beauty and elegance of his analysis, while practicing programmers have successfully applied his ?cookbook? solutions to their day-to-day problems. All have admired Knuth for the breadth, clarity, accuracy, and good humor found in his books.To begin the fourth and later volumes of the set, and to update parts of the existing three, Knuth has created a series of small books called fascicles, which will be published at regular intervals. Each fascicle will encompass a section or more of wholly new or revised material. Ultimately, the content of these fascicles will be rolled up into the comprehensive, final versions of each volume, and the enormous undertaking that began in 1962 will be complete.Volume 4, Fascicle 1This fascicle, enlivened by a wealth of Knuth's typically enjoyable examples, describes basic ?broadword? operations and an important class of data structures that can make computer programs run dozens?even thousands?of times faster. The author brings together and explains a substantial amount of previously scattered but eminently practical information known only to a few specialists. The book also includes nearly five-hundred exercises for self-study, with detailed answers given in nearly every case; dozens of these exercises present original material that has never before been published. Simply put, this fascicle is a must-have for anybody who is faced with tough problems of a combinatorial flavor. It demonstrates how ordinary programmers can make use of powerful techniques that heretofore seemed to be available only to people who used specialized languages and software. It shows how ideas once thought to be ?far out? are now ready to become a part of the programming mainstream.

Now, from a Silicon Valley hero and bestselling technology writer comes a pointed critique of the hype surrounding computers and their real benefits, especially in education. In High-Tech Heretic, Clifford Stoll questions the relentless drumbeat for "computer literacy" by educators and the computer industry, particularly since most people just use computers for word processing and games?and computers become outmoded or obsolete much sooner than new textbooks or a good teacher. As one who loves computers as much as he disdains the inflated promises made on their behalf, Stoll offers a commonsense look at how we can make a technological world better suited for people, instead of making people better suited to using machines.

Stoll began a one-man hunt of his own, spying on the spy -- and plunged into an incredible international probe that finally gained the attention of top US counterintelligence agents. The Cuckoo's Egg is his wild and suspenseful true story -- a year of deception, broken codes, satellites, missile bases, and the ultimate sting operation -- and how one ingenious American trapped a spy ring paid in cash and cocaine, and reporting to the KGB.

Look no further, Computer Programming for Teens is the book for you. Other books on programming tend to be language specific and often get bogged down in the syntax of the language. That is fine if you already have a strong background in programming, but if you're a novice, the language-specific approach can make things unnecessarily difficult. Computer Programming for Teens stresses concepts over language, but still includes examples in the most popular languages?specifically HTML, C++, and Java. It begins by explaining the fundamental topics, like data storage, and progresses through to more complex topics, such as decisions, loops, design, and complex data structures. Written by a high school teacher, the book includes helpful tips and analogies to guide readers through the maze of programming techniques, concepts, and common pitfalls. It introduces the most relevant topics for beginners and pinpoints the essential skills needed for programming success.

Product Category: Media > Books Product Brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Fault Tolerant Computer Architecture $28.82 For many years, most computer architects have pursued one primary goal: performance. Architects have translated the ever-increasing abundance of ever-faster transistors provided by Moore's law into remarkable increases in performance. Recently, however, the bounty provided by Moore's law has been accompanied by several challenges that have arisen as devices have become smaller, including a decrease in dependability due to physical faults. In this book, we focus on the dependability challenge and the fault tolerance solutions that architects are developing to overcome it. The two main purposes of this book are to explore the key ideas in fault-tolerant computer architecture and to present the current state-of-the-art - over approximately the past 10 years - in academia and industry.Table of Contents: Introduction / Error Detection / Error Recovery / Diagnosis / Self-Repair / The Future Product Category: Media > Books Product Brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Encyclopedia of Computer Science and Technology $82.76 Harry Henderson,Hardcover - REV, Edition: 2,Series: Science Encyclopedia Series, English-language edition,Pub by Facts on File, Incorporated Product Category: Media > Books Product Brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com The Fires: How a Computer Formula Burned Down New York City--and Deter $17.96 Throughout the 1970s, fires lit up the skies of New York.

Do the concepts we usually employ to talk about art, such as 'meaning', 'form' or 'expression' apply to computer art?A Philosophy of Computer Art is the first book to explore these questions. Dominic Lopes argues that computer art challenges some of the basic tenets of traditional ways of thinking about and making art and that to understand computer art we need to place particular emphasis on terms such as 'interactivity' and 'user'. Drawing on a wealth of examples he also explains how the roles of the computer artist and computer art user distinguishes them from makers and spectators of traditional art forms and argues that computer art allows us to understand better the role of technology as an art medium.

Ultimately, the content of these fascicles will be rolled up into the comprehensive, final versions of each volume, and the enormous undertaking that began in 1962 will be complete.Volume 4, Fascicle 3This fascicle continues Knuth's authoritative chapter on combinatorial algorithms, ultimately to be included in Volume 4 of The Art of Computer Programming. The previous fascicle from Volume 4, which covered the generation of all tuples and permutations, is now complemented by techniques for generating all combinations and partitions. In Knuth's thorough discussion of these two topics, readers will find much that is new, as well as surprisingly rich ties to material in Volumes 1 through 3 and to other aspects of computer science andmathematics. As usual, this fascicle includes a bounty of creative exercises, as well as intriguing challenges posed by yet-unsolved questions. Product Category: Media > Books Product Brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Digital Evidence and Computer Crime $48.12 Digital evidence?evidence that is stored on or transmitted by computers?can play a major role in a wide range of crimes, including homicide, rape, abduction, child abuse, solicitation of minors, child pornography, stalking, harassment, fraud, theft, drug trafficking, computer intrusions, espionage, and terrorism. Though an increasing number of criminals are using computers and computer networks, few investigators are well-versed in the evidentiary, technical, and legal issues related to digital evidence. As a result, digital evidence is often overlooked, collected incorrectly, and analyzed ineffectively. The aim of this hands-on resource is to educate students and professionals in the law enforcement, forensic science, computer security, and legal communities about digital evidence and computer crime. This work explains how computers and networks function, how they can be involved in crimes, and how they can be used as a source of evidence. As well as gaining a practical understanding of how computers and networks function and how they can be used as evidence of a crime, readers will learn about relevant legal issues and will be introduced to deductive criminal profiling, a systematic approach to focusing an investigation and understanding criminal motivations.

Excerpt: Adam Osborne Adam Osborne (March 6, 1939 March 18, 2003) was an American author , book and software publisher , and computer designer who founded several companies in the United States and elsewhere. Early years Adam Osborne was born in Thailand on March 6, 1939. He was the son of British parents Arthur and Lucia Osborne who spent most of their time in India. Computers Osborne was known to frequent the famous Homebrew Computer Club 's meetings around 1975. He was best known for creating the first commercially available portable computer , the Osborne 1 , released in April 1981. It weighed 24.5 pounds (12 kg), cost US $1795 just over half the cost of a computer from other manufacturers with comparable features and ran the popular CP/M 2.2 operating system . At its peak, Osborne Computer Corporation shipped 10000 units of "Osborne 1" per month. Osborne was one of the first personal computing pioneers to understand fully that there was a wide market of buyers who were not computing hobbyists: the Osborne 1 included word processing and spreadsheet software. This was at a time when IBM would not bundle hardware and software with their PCs, selling separately the operating systems, monitors, and even cables for the monitor. It is said that in 1983, Adam Osborne bragged about two ad...

The key is used to search for the address of a desired record. When the file is a telephone directory, searching is easy?the key is the subscriber's name and the records are naturally arranged in alphabetic order. For data whose records are not easily alphabetized, a hash function is used to arithmetically derive from the key record's address. Hashing was invented during the design of the IBM 701 machine in the 1950s by Hans Peter Luhn. In the ensuing half century, the hashing concept has found a variety of applications. When combined with cryptography, hashing can be used to authenticate users in e-commerce on the Web.Professor Konheim is an authority on computer security and an early contributor to hashing technology. Based on courses taught by the author, this book unravels the complicated mathematics involved in hashing as it explains in detail the various hashing methods. It describes:Techniques for audio fingerprinting, the automated recognition of musicThe use of hashing in e-commerce to protect against identity theftHow hashing is used to inhibit the unlawful copying and distribution of music, video, software, books, and dataKey points are reinforced in the sample problems and solutions provided; also included are an accompanying instructor's manual and extensive bibliography. Hashing in Computer Science is valuable reading for graduate students and researchers in mathematics, cryptography, and security. It can be used as a textbook in senior and graduate courses on cryptography and others that employ cryptanalysis, computer security, analysis of randomized and combinatorial algorithms, computer networks, compiler design, computational geometry, and theory of computation.

Katherine Hayles, where new languages are constantly emerging, proliferating, and fading into obsolescence. These are languages of our own making: the programming languages written in code for the intelligent machines we call computers. Hayles's latest exploration provides an exciting new way of understanding the relations between code and language and considers how their interactions have affected creative, technological, and artistic practices.My Mother Was a Computer explores how the impact of code on everyday life has become comparable to that of speech and writing: language and code have grown more entangled, the lines that once separated humans from machines, analog from digital, and old technologies from new ones have become blurred. My Mother Was a Computer gives us the tools necessary to make sense of these complex relationships. Hayles argues that we live in an age of intermediation that challenges our ideas about language, subjectivity, literary objects, and textuality. This process of intermediation takes place where digital media interact with cultural practices associated with older media, and here Hayles sharply portrays such interactions: how code differs from speech; how electronic text differs from print; the effects of digital media on the idea of the self; the effects of digitality on printed books; our conceptions of computers as living beings; the possibility that human consciousness itself might be computational; and the subjective cosmology wherein humans see the universe through the lens of their own digital age.We are the children of computers in more than one sense, and no critic has done more than N. Katherine Hayles to explain how these technologies define us and our culture. Heady and provocative, My Mother Was a Computer will be judged as her best work yet.

What can probability theory teach us about free will? Can mathematical notions be used to enhance one's personal understanding of the Bible?Perhaps no one is more qualified to address these questions than Donald E. Knuth, whose massive contributions to computing have led others to nickname him "The Father of Computer Science"?and whose religious faith led him to understand a fascinating analysis of the Bible called the 3:16 project. In this series of six spirited, informal lectures, Knuth explores the relationships between his vocation and his faith, revealing the unique perspective that his work with computing has lent to his understanding of God.His starting point is the 3:16 project, an application of mathematical "random sampling" to the books of the Bible. The first lectures tell the story of the project's conception and execution, exploring its many dimensions of language translation, aesthetics, and theological history. Along the way, Knuth explains the many insights he gained from such interdisciplinary work. These theological musings culminate in a surprising final lecture tackling the ideas of infinity, free will, and some of the other big questions that lie at the juncture of theology and computation.Things a Computer Scientist Rarely Talks About, with its charming and user-friendly format?each lecture ends with a question and answer exchange, and the book itself contains more than 100 illustrations?is a readable and intriguing approach to a crucial topic, certain to edify both those who are serious and curious about their faiths and those who look at the science of computation and wonder what it might teach them about their spiritual world.Includes "Creativity, Spirituality, and Computer Science," a panel discussion featuring Harry Lewis, Guy L.

And they did it without fanfare or recognition from their employer. Hiltzik's Dealers of Lightning provides a fascinating look at technohistory that sets the record straight. In Dealers of Lightning, Hiltzik describes the forces and faces behind the revolution that the Xerox PARC team single-handedly spawned. The Xerox PARC group was composed solely of top technical minds. The decision was made at Xerox headquarters to give the team complete freedom from deadlines and directives, in hopes of fostering a true creative environment. It worked ? perhaps too well. The team responded with a steady output of amazing technology, including the first version of the Internet, the first personal computer, user-friendly word-processing programs, and pop-up menus. Xerox, far from ready for the explosion of innovation, failed to utilize the technology dreamed up by the group. Out of all the dazzling inventions born at Xerox PARC, only a handful were developed and marketed by Xerox. However, one of these inventions, the laser printer, proved successful enough to earn billions for the company, therefore justifying its investment in the research center. Most oftheteam's creations would go on to be developed and perfected by other companies, such as IBM, Apple, and Microsoft. Drawing from interviews with the engineers, executives, and scientists involved in the Xerox PARC, Dealers of Lightning chronicles an amazing era of egos, ideas, and inventions at the dawn of the computer age.

SALTZERM. FRANS KAASHOEKPrinciples of Computer System Design: An Introduction is the first book to identify, examine, and illustrate the fundamental principles and abstractions in computer system design that are common across operating systems, networks, database systems, distributed systems, programming languages, software engineering, and computer architecture. Through carefully analyzed case studies from each of these disciplines, it demonstrates how to apply these principles and abstractions to tackle real system design problems. To support the focus on design, the book identifies and explains abstractions that have proven successful in practice such as, names, remote procedure call, client/service organization, file systems, transactions, replication with repair, read/write coherence, and authenticated and confidential messages. These abstractions allow designers to compose systems with increasingly strong modularity, to protect against failures ranging from accidental programmer errors to malicious adversaries. This book describes how these abstractions are implemented, demonstrates how they are used in different systems, and prepares the reader to apply them in future designs.FEATURES Formulates and illustrates the main principles (see list on inside cover) of computer system design. Presents a cross-disciplinary approach drawing on examples from networking, operating systems, distributed systems, architecture and other disciplines within computer science. Explores principles and abstractions in-depth with numerous case studies, including Unix (file systems); URL, DNS (naming); NFS (client/service); virtual machines (virtualization); disk arms (scheduling); TLS (security). Illustrates core concepts using numerous pseudocode examples throughout the text.

How does it hunt living prey, respond to lights, sounds, and smells, and display complex sequences of movements without the benefit of a nervous system? This book offers a startling and original answer. In clear, jargon-free language, Dennis Bray taps the findings of the new discipline of systems biology to show that the internal chemistry of living cells is a form of computation. Cells are built out of molecular circuits that perform logical operations, as electronic devices do, but with unique properties. Bray argues that the computational juice of cells provides the basis of all the distinctive properties of living systems: it allows organisms to embody in their internal structure an image of the world, and this accounts for their adaptability, responsiveness, and intelligence. In Wetware, Bray offers imaginative, wide-ranging and perceptive critiques of robotics and complexity theory, as well as many entertaining and telling anecdotes.

Product Category: Media > Books Product Brand: Product UPC: Barnes & Noble.com Wetware: A Computer in Every Living Cell $12.11 How does a single-cell creature, such as an amoeba, lead such a sophisticated life? How does it hunt living prey, respond to lights, sounds, and smells, and display complex sequences of movements without the benefit of a nervous system? This book offers a startling and original answer. In clear, jargon-free language, Dennis Bray taps the findings of the new discipline of systems biology to show that the internal chemistry of living cells is a form of computation. Cells are built out of molecular circuits that perform logical operations, as electronic devices do, but with unique properties. Bray argues that the computational juice of cells provides the basis of all the distinctive properties of living systems: it allows organisms to embody in their internal structure an image of the world, and this accounts for their adaptability, responsiveness, and intelligence. In Wetware, Bray offers imaginative, wide-ranging and perceptive critiques of robotics and complexity theory, as well as many entertaining and telling anecdotes. For the general reader, the practicing scientist, and all others with an interest in the nature of life, the book is an exciting portal to some of biology's latest discoveries and ideas.

If you recognized the name of John Atanasoff, give yourself a hundred points, and that, in a sense is the point of this book: Iowa State University physics professor John Vincent Atanasoff (1903-1995) remains an almost totally unknown pioneer of the digital age and therein lies Smiley's tale. It was in a small-town bar in the late 1930s that the electrical engineer son of an Bulgarian immigrant father hit on the ingenious idea that the binary number system, electronic switches, and capacitors mounted on a moving drum could transform mathematical calculations. His prescient insights were, unfortunately, not patented, but time, as Smiley artfully explains, eventually corrected that oversight.
