'An excellent course text around which to base lectures.' 'Well structured, not too complicated, breaks down topics into easily assimilated components.' 'The most comprehensive around ...' Lecturers This highly popular text is used on a wide range of computing courses, including A Level, BTEC, City & Guilds, BCS and BSC. Information has been included on the Internet, RAD and Object Oriented methods. Some obsolete or peripheral material has been cut in order to keep the text to a manageable length.
A complete lexicon of technical information, the Dictionary of Computer Science, Engineering, and Technology provides workable definitions, practical information, and enhances general computer science and engineering literacy. It spans various disciplines and industry sectors such as: telecommunications, information theory, and software and hardware systems. If you work with, or write about computers, this dictionary is the single most important resource you can put on your shelf. The dictionary addresses all aspects of computing and computer technology from multiple perspectives, including the academic, applied, and professional vantage points. Including more than 8,000 terms, it covers all...
This book is suitable for use in a university-level first course in computing (CS1), as well as the increasingly popular course known as CS0. It is difficult for many students to master basic concepts in computer science and programming. A large portion of the confusion can be blamed on the complexity of the tools and materials that are traditionally used to teach CS1 and CS2. This textbook was written with a single overarching goal: to present the core concepts of computer science as simply as possible without being simplistic.
The second part of this Handbook presents a choice of material on the theory of automata and rewriting systems, the foundations of modern programming languages, logics for program specification and verification, and some chapters on the theoretic modelling of advanced information processing.
The 2016 International Conference on Computer Science, Technology and Application (CSTA2016) were held in Changsha, China on March 18–20, 2016. The main objective of the joint conference is to provide a platform for researchers, academics and industrial professionals to present their research findings in the fields of computer science and technology. The CSTA2016 received more than 150 submissions, but only 67 articles were selected to be included in this proceedings, which are organized into 6 chapters; covering Image and Signal Processing, Computer Network, Algorithm and Simulation, Data Mining and Cloud Computing, Computer Systems and Application, Mathematics and Management. Contents:Image and Signal ProcessingComputer Network and Information SecurityAlgorithm and SimulationData Mining and Cloud ComputingComputer System and ApplicationMathematics and Management Readership: Researchers and professionals in computer networks & signal processing.
Explains the fundamental concepts in mathematics. It can be used by the students in computer science as an introduction to the underlying ideas of mathematics for computer science. It explains topics like mathematical logic, predicates, relations, functions, combinatorics, algebraic structures and graph theory. It would be useful for the students of B.Tech, BCA, & MCA. Key Features: * Comprehensive discussion on logic, function, algebraic systems, recurrence relations and graph theory * Wide variety of exercises at all levels * Several worked out examples
