Die Macht der Abstraktion : Einführung in die Programmierung by Herbert Klaeren

By Herbert Klaeren

"Die Macht der Abstraktion" ist eine Einführung in die Entwicklung von Programmen und die dazugehörigen formalen Grundlagen. Im Zentrum stehen Konstruktionsanleitungen, die die systematische Konstruktion von Programmen fördern, sowie Techniken zur Abstraktion, welche die Umsetzung der Konstruktionsanleitungen ermöglichen. In der Betonung systematischer Konstruktion unterscheidet sich dieses Buch drastisch von den meisten anderen Einführungen in die Programmierung.
Die vermittelten Grundlagen und Techniken sind unabhängig von einer bestimmten Programmiersprache. Zur representation und zum education der Programmierung dient Scheme, eine kleine und leicht erlernbare Programmiersprache, die es erlaubt, die Konzepte der Programmierung zu präsentieren, ohne Zeit mit der Konstruktvielfalt anderer Programmiersprachen zu verlieren. Entsprechend vermittelt dieses Buch fortgeschrittene Techniken. Scheme-Könner sind in der Lage, andere Programmiersprachen in kürzester Zeit zu erlernen.

Parallel and Constraint Logic Programming: An Introduction by Ioannis Vlahavas

By Ioannis Vlahavas

Constraint common sense Programming (CLP), a space of maximum examine curiosity in recent times, extends the semantics of Prolog in any such approach that the combinatorial explosion, a attribute of such a lot difficulties within the box of man-made Intelligence, might be tackled successfully. by way of utilizing solvers devoted to every one area rather than the unification set of rules, CLP tremendously reduces the hunt area of the matter, which ends up in elevated potency within the execution of common sense courses. CLP deals the potential of fixing advanced combinatorial difficulties in a good manner, and while continues the benefits provided by means of the declarativeness of good judgment programming.
the purpose of this booklet is to give parallel and constraint good judgment programming, supplying a uncomplicated realizing of the 2 fields to the reader new to the realm. the 1st a part of the e-book provides an creation to the basic elements of traditional good judgment programming that is priceless for figuring out the elements that stick with. the second one half comprises an advent to parallel good judgment programming, architectures and implementations proposed within the quarter. eventually, the 3rd half offers the rules of constraint good judgment programming. The final elements additionally contain descriptions of the aiding amenities for the 2 paradigms in well known platforms; ECLIPSe and SICStus. those structures were chosen as a rule simply because they give either parallel and constraint positive aspects. Annotated and defined examples also are integrated within the proper components, supplying a worthy advisor and a primary useful event to the reader. eventually, purposes of the coated paradigms are provided.
The authors felt ebook of this type should still supply a few theoretical historical past helpful for the knowledge of the coated common sense programming paradigms, and a brief commence for the reader attracted to writing parallel and constraint common sense programming courses. but it is outdoor the scope of this publication to supply a deep theoretical historical past of the 2 components. In that experience, this ebook is addressed to a public attracted to acquiring a data of the area, with no spending the effort and time to appreciate the large theoretical paintings performed within the box &endash; specifically postgraduate and complex undergraduate scholars within the zone of common sense programming.
This ebook fills a spot within the present bibliography, for the reason that there's no complete publication of this point that covers the components of traditional, parallel, and constraint good judgment programming.
Parallel and Constraint common sense Programming: An creation to Logic,Parallelism and Constraints is acceptable for a complicated point direction on good judgment Programming or Constraints, and as a reference for practitioners and researchers in industry.

Visual Language Theory by Kim Marriott, Bernd Meyer

By Kim Marriott, Bernd Meyer

Kim Marriott Bernd Meyer communique is among the hallmarks of people. after we give some thought to hu­ guy conversation, most folks first consider spoken and written lan­ guages. those are comparable in that symbols within the language are encountered and processed sequentially, both temporally as they're spoken or as char­ acters are learn throughout a web page. in spite of the fact that, now not all human verbal exchange is sequential in nature. very important parts of human verbal exchange are visible languages, corresponding to maps or diagrams. In those languages the fundamental symbols should not encountered sequentially yet relatively obvious jointly at a look. visible languages are ubiquitous in human cultures, starting from tradi­ tional work of vital Australian aborigines that are, partly, maps of the nation-state to an architect's layout of a brand new construction. visible languages were hired from earliest pre-history to the current and are utilized in nearly each human activity. They hide the full spectrum of human expression starting from tremendous paintings, akin to an summary expressionist's inner most language, to specific technical verbal exchange utilizing carefully outlined no­ tation, resembling musical notation, mathematical notation, or highway maps. a few visible languages, similar to signal languages utilized by the deaf neighborhood, alternative spoken language completely. certainly, signal languages, for instance American signal Language, are a very fascinating example of visible verbal exchange, in view that they use third-dimensional spatial preparations of indicators together with their sequential temporal order to represent meaning.
