Compression algorithms for real programmers by Peter Wayner

By Peter Wayner

In lifestyles, time is cash, and on the web, the scale of knowledge is cash. Small courses and small records take much less disk house and value much less to ship over the net. Compression Algorithms for actual Programmers describes the fundamental algorithms and methods for compressing info so that you can create the smallest records attainable. those new algorithms are making it attainable for individuals to take impossibly huge audio and video records and compress them sufficient that they could stream over the web. * Examines the vintage algorithms like Huffman coding, mathematics compression, and dictionary-based schemes extensive * Describes the fundamental ways used to squeeze audio and video indications by way of components of up to 100:1 * Discusses the philosophy of compression to demonstrate the underlying trade-offs within the algorithms * Explores using wavelets and different modeling thoughts that use repetitive services to squeeze audio and video * indicates how programming strategies like Adobe PostScript can shop area and make networks extra effective * Describes new ways utilizing fractals and grammars simply being explored by means of the compression neighborhood * indicates the right way to expand the algorithms and use them for copyright safety

Optimization Algorithms in Physics by Alexander K. Hartmann, Heiko Rieger

By Alexander K. Hartmann, Heiko Rieger

Straff und doch leicht verständlich kommt diese Einführung daher. Anders als der Titel zunächst annehmen lässt, ist dieses Werk durchaus als Einführung in die Computerphysik geeignet. Es gibt einen auf das Wesentliche reduzierten Überblick über die heute wichtigen Themen der computerorientierten Physik. Die einfachen Beispiele und der Pseudocode ermöglichen die rasche Umsetzung der vorgestellten Konzepte. Optimierung, Percoaltion, Monte Carlo usw. - die Verfahren und Algorithmen lassen sich nicht nur in der Physik, sondern auch in vielen anderen Bereichen, wie etwa der Bioinformatik (z.B. Sequenzalignment) anwenden. Alles in Allem ein leicht verständliches Buch, für den angehenden Computerphysiker unbedingt zu empfehlen.

Complexity and Real Computation by Lenore Blum, Felipe Cucker, Michael Shub, Steve Smale

By Lenore Blum, Felipe Cucker, Michael Shub, Steve Smale

The classical thought of computation has its origins within the paintings of Goedel, Turing, Church, and Kleene and has been an awfully profitable framework for theoretical desktop technology. The thesis of this e-book, despite the fact that, is that it offers an insufficient starting place for contemporary clinical computation the place lots of the algorithms are genuine quantity algorithms. The objective of this ebook is to advance a proper thought of computation which integrates significant issues of the classical conception and that is extra at once appropriate to difficulties in arithmetic, numerical research, and clinical computing. alongside the best way, the authors give some thought to such primary difficulties as: * Is the Mandelbrot set decidable? * for easy quadratic maps, is the Julia set a halting set? * what's the actual complexity of Newton's strategy? * Is there an set of rules for determining the knapsack challenge in a ploynomial variety of steps? * Is the Hilbert Nullstellensatz intractable? * Is the matter of finding a true 0 of a level 4 polynomial intractable? * Is linear programming tractable over the reals? The booklet is split into 3 elements: the 1st half offers an in depth advent after which proves the elemental NP-completeness theorems of Cook-Karp and their extensions to extra normal quantity fields because the genuine and complicated numbers. The later elements of the e-book increase a proper concept of computation which integrates significant subject matters of the classical conception and that is extra at once acceptable to difficulties in arithmetic, numerical research, and clinical computing.

Creating Database-Backed Library Web Pages: Using Open by Stephen R. Westman

By Stephen R. Westman

Database-backed web content supply many benefits for libraries: clients get actual and up to date info in genuine time, and location upkeep and information publishing are a lot more uncomplicated. As attractive an idea as database-backed pages are, the “how-tos” of making them stay a secret to many librarians.This hands-on source offers the instruments to enhance clients’ effects through delivering present information, make website upkeep and knowledge publishing a lot more uncomplicated, or even upload new usefulness to present facts. Following those transparent, step by step motives, readers will locate confirmed suggestions for solutions to questions like: * What are database-backed websites? * How a lot technical knowledge is required to do that? * whilst, and for what forms of info, are database-backed web content applicable? * What are Open resource instruments? * Who can use Open resource software program? * Why is it applicable for libraries?The ebook includes:# pattern software code and databases# A programming setting, together with a functionality library to facilitate the programming of often-needed projects# hyperlinks to info on establishing your individual database-backedwebsite, together with particular directions on easy methods to arrange the book's programming surroundings# instance varieties, records, and programming criteria for designing your individual siteThe booklet specializes in MySQL but in addition bargains info on PostgreSQL, together with complete help for it within the functionality library.This authoritative, money-saving advisor takes readers via a whole undertaking from thought to implementation. It serves either newbie and specialist librarians concerned with designing and retaining web pages, in addition to IT managers and directors looking professional information on undefined, software program, and programming and documentation techniques. choked with professional recommendation and hyperlinks to genuine instruments, this strong, hands-on reference will streamline site owners’ effects and consumers’ searches.

Handbook of Exact String Matching Algorithms by Christian Charras

By Christian Charras

String matching is an important topic within the wider area of textual content processing. It comprises discovering one,or extra more often than not, the entire occurrences of a string (more commonly known as a development) in a textual content. The instruction manual of actual String Matching Algorithms provides 38 tools for fixing this challenge. for every, it supplies the most gains, an outline, its C code, an instance and references.

Handbook of Aqueous Solubility Data, Second Edition by Samuel H. Yalkowsky

By Samuel H. Yalkowsky

Through the years, researchers have said solubility information within the chemical, pharmaceutical, engineering, and environmental literature for a number of thousand natural compounds. until eventually the 1st book of the instruction manual of Aqueous Solubility info, this knowledge were scattered all through quite a few resources. Now newly revised, the second one version of this landmark quantity keeps the culture of delivering an in depth compilation of released aqueous solubility information for a large choice of natural nonelectrolytes and unionized susceptible electrolytes. provides information on 500 extra natural compounds This most recent version provides 2000 new solubility values, bringing the whole count number to over 18,000 info issues. virtually 500 natural compounds were further, expanding the whole quantity to 4661. This quantity comprises facts for prescription drugs, pollution, foodstuff, herbicides, and insecticides in addition to agricultural, business, and energy-related compounds. an identical handy structure every one compound is pointed out via a sequential quantity besides molecular formulation, compound identify, synonyms, molecular weight, Chemical Abstracts provider Registry quantity, melting aspect, and boiling element if to be had. every one access has a five-point overview ranking for the standard of the reporting of the information, besides the total quotation, and reviews from the authors whilst helpful. The straight forward structure provides a transparent depiction of every piece of solubility information with sufficient info to estimate its validity. The instruction manual of Aqueous Solubility information provides scientists in a vast variety of fields a conveyable, available source for solubility info of diverse compounds and a unmarried method for the evaluate of the information provided.
