Review
Choice : Essential. . . . Rubin Landau offers a practical introduction to the world of scientific computing or numerical analysis.
Mathematical Reviews : An invaluable learning text and . . . a consummate model for future textbooks in computational science and engineering courses.

Review
Gregory Moses, University of Wisconsin-Madison : This book fills an important niche for the undergraduate by providing a well-organized, well-written introduction to a subject usually addressed in books for graduate students. Its problem-based approach to programming in Maple and Java, using common physics problems in a multitude of areas such as mechanisms, electromagnetism, and relativity, is very effective method of instruction.

The Future Does Not Compute
Steve Talbott
1565920856


·
 
Book Review
Stephen Talbott's The Future Does Not Compute has been widely touted as a neo-Luddite anti-computer tract. This sort of pigeonholing makes it easy to ignore the profound and disturbing questions Talbott raises about our machine-dominated society. The author brings years of computer and Internet experience to the table, leavened by a deep skepticism of techno-idealism, disdain of muddy thinking, and fear that we have embraced an overwhelming force before we've begun to examine its implications. Is technology a utopian delusion that blinds us to social and personal reality? Does the information society actually disdain information? Have we anthropomorphized machines to the point where our institutions resemble them? Talbott neither expects that computers will vanish, nor believes they should. What he asks of us is to...

How to Design Programs: An Introduction to Programming and Computing
Matthias Felleisen
0262062186
February 2001
Textbook Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This introduction to programming places computer science in the core of a liberal arts education. Unlike other introductory books, it focuses on the program design process. This approach fosters a variety of skills--critical reading, analytical thinking, creative synthesis, and attention to detail--that are important for everyone, not just future computer programmers.

The book exposes readers to two fundamentally new ideas. First, it presents program design guidelines that show the reader how to analyze a problem statement; how to formulate concise goals; how to make up examples; how to develop an outline of the solution, based on the analysis; how to finish the program; and how to test. Each step produces a well-defined intermediate product. Second, the book comes with a novel programming environment, the...


Future Interaction Design
A. Pirhonen (Editor), et al
1852337915
January 14, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The perspectives and techniques used in human-computer interaction design, practice and research are broadening. This book looks at emerging approaches which are likely to contribute to the discipline in near future. The emphasis is on the social, cognitive, emotional, creative and active dimensions of the human actor. The underlying idea is that human character rather than technology should determine the nature of interaction. The concept of "interaction design" covers this broader range of concerns relevant to enabling quality design. Each chapter emphasizes alternative perspectives on interaction and new concepts to help researchers and practitioners relate to alternative design approaches and opportunities. Many of these new elements can be found to be successful and established in other fields, such as information...


The Bit and the Pendulum: From Quantum Computing to M Theory-The New Physics of Information
Tom Siegfried
0471399744
November 22, 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Information, for most of us, is an airy, abstract thing--the stuff of ideas, images, and symbols. But for Tom Siegfried and the scientists he writes about in The Bit and the Pendulum: How the New Physics of Information Is Revolutionizing Science, information has become something much more fundamental to the workings of the world. "Information is real," Siegfried explains. "Information is physical." What that means depends somewhat on the discipline it's applied to (cosmology, particle physics, computer science, cognitive theory, and molecular biology are among the fields examined here), but in general it comes down to the radically simple notion that the universe, at its deepest levels, is made not of matter and energy but of bits. Information is real, yes. But more to the point: reality, in some increasingly meaningful...

Next: The Future Just Happened
Michael Lewis

July 31, 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review's Best of 2001
If you've ever had the sneaking (and perhaps depressing) suspicion that the Internet is radically changing the world as you know it, buck up. No wait, buckle up--it is. While some people celebrate this and others bemoan it, Michael Lewis has been busy investigating the reasons for this rapid change. Employing the sarcastic wit and keen recognition of social shifts that readers of Liar's Poker and The New New Thing will recognize, Lewis takes us on a quick spin through today and speculates on what it might mean for tomorrow.

Central to Lewis's observations is the idea that the Internet hasn't really caused anything; rather it fills a type of social hole, the most obvious of which is a need to alter relations between "insiders" and "outsiders." In Next, Lewis shows how the Internet is the ideal model for...

From Booklist
Editor Derek Leebaert, author of Technology 2001: The Future of Computing and Communications (1992), contends that standardization, coupled with further sophistication of software technology, is pivotal to the future of computers. Leebaert, who teaches computer technology at Georgetown, has collected the opinions, knowledge, and prophecies of 13 of his peers in academia and the corporate world to provide this wide view of the vast potential software possesses and the multifarious directions it may take. Among the interesting contentions are attorney Jeffrey Cunard's comments about the "shrink wrap" license on the packaging of software products and the future of software law as an entity in itself, akin to, yet separate from, copyright law. Stimulating articles that will be of interest to an audience beyond...


The Future of Law : Facing the Challenges of Information Technology

Book Description
Written by a leading expert on computers and law, this important new book book shows exactly why and how information technology (IT) will radically alter the practice of law and the administration of justice.

Beyond automating and streamlining traditional ways of providing legal advice, IT is re-engineering the entire legal process, resulting in legal products and information services whose focus will be dispute pre-emption rather than dispute resolution, and legal risk management rather than legal
problem solving. With easy and inexpensive access available, IT will help integrate the law with business and domestic life. This book considers the implications, opportunities, and challenges for all concerned in the information society.

The IT revolution cannot be ignored, and this book is essential...
