Review
THANK YOU!!!! for "Microsoft Outlook Programming" from
Digital Press. This book is such a blessing to us ower users looking for starting or jumping off point to go into the deep end of programming.
As a former 5 yr sales rep for end user trainng
manuals now turned sales engineer, I needed a point of reference closer to my personal experience
and immediate interest. I never had the patience for
all those beginning programming books building "birdhouses" and "hello world." Thank you for giving us wannabe programmers an immediate and
relevant starting point!--Greg Saddler, Atlanta, GA

Mastering Algorithms with C with Disk
Kyle Loudon
1565924533
Jan 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Written with the intermediate to advanced C programmer in mind, Mastering Algorithms with C delivers a no-nonsense guide to the most common algorithms needed by real-world developers.

The highlight of the book has to be its concise and readable C functions for all the algorithms presented here, including basics like linked lists, stacks to trees, graphs, and sorting/searching algorithms. The C functions that implement these algorithms are clearly printed and remarkably easy to read. You can use this sample code directly or adapt it into your C/C++ code.

Although mathematical concepts like Big-O notation are discussed, the authors don't get bogged down in the computer science theory surrounding algorithms. Instead, they present the most tried-and-true algorithms available today in an efficient format. Besides...



Applied Cryptography: Protocols, Algorithms, and Source Code in C

From the Back Cover

This multivolume work on the analysis of algorithms has long been recognized as the definitive description of classical computer science.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...

Classification Algorithms for Codes and Designs (Algorithms and Computation in Mathematics)

3540289909


·
 
Book Description
This book considers one of the basic problems in discrete mathematics: given a collection of constraints, describe up to isomorphism all the objects that meet them. Only a handful of classification results for combinatorial objects are dated before the mid-20th century; indeed, it is through modern computers and recent developments in algorithms that this topic has flourished and matured. This book is the first comprehensive reference on combinatorial classification algorithms, with emphasis on both the general theory and application to central families of combinatorial objects, in particular, codes and designs. The accompanying DVD provides an exhaustive catalogue of combinatorial objects with small parameters. The book will be of great interest to researchers and can be used as course material for graduate courses in...

An Introduction to Bioinformatics Algorithms
Neil C. Jones
0262101068
Aug 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This introductory text offers a clear exposition of the algorithmic principles driving advances in bioinformatics. Accessible to students in both biology and computer science, it strikes a unique balance between rigorous mathematics and practical techniques, emphasizing the ideas underlying algorithms rather than offering a collection of apparently unrelated problems.

The book introduces biological and algorithmic ideas together, linking issues in computer science to biology and thus capturing the interest of students in both subjects. It demonstrates that relatively few design techniques can be used to solve a large number of practical problems in biology, and presents this material intuitively.

An Introduction to Bioinformatics Algorithms is one of the first books on bioinformatics...

Book Description
Why We Wrote This Book Intended for an upper-level undergraduate or graduate course in algorithms, this book is based on our combined 25 years of experience in teaching this course. Our major goals in writing this book were to Emphasize design techniques. Show that algorithms are fun and exciting. Include real-world applications. Provide numerous worked examples and exercises. Faced with a new computational problem, a designer will often be able to solve it by using one of the algorithms in this book, perhaps after modifying or adapting it slightly. However, some problems cannot be solved by any of the algorithms in this book. For this reason, we present a repertoire of design techniques that can be used to solve the problem and help the reader to develop intuition about which techniques are likely to succeed....

Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software
Steven Johnson

September 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review's Best of 2001
An individual ant, like an individual neuron, is just about as dumb as can be. Connect enough of them together properly, though, and you get spontaneous intelligence. Web pundit Steven Johnson explains what we know about this phenomenon with a rare lucidity in Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software. Starting with the weird behavior of the semi-colonial organisms we call slime molds, Johnson details the development of increasingly complex and familiar behavior among simple components: cells, insects, and software developers all find their place in greater schemes.

Most game players, alas, live on something close to day-trader time, at least when they're in the middle of a game--thinking more about their next move than their next meal, and usually blissfully oblivious to the...

Book Description


Rapidly evolving computer and communications technologies have achieved data transmission rates and data storage capacities high enough for digital video. But video involves much more than just pushing bits! Achieving the best possible image quality, accurate color, and smooth motion requires understanding many aspects of image acquisition, coding, processing, and display that are outside the usual realm of computer graphics. At the same time, video system designers are facing new demands to interface with film and computer system that require techniques outside conventional video engineering.


Charles Poynton's 1996 book A Technical Introduction to Digital Video became an industry favorite for its succinct, accurate, and accessible treatment of standard definition television (SDTV). In...
