Deadly Connections is an important book that not only fills a long-standing gap in the field of terrorism studies, but significantly advances our understanding of this particularly opaque and complex phenomenon." --Bruce Hoffman, author of... An Introduction to Programming with Mathematica, Third Edition "Essential...a welcome addition to the literature. The choice of topics and their presentation are lucidly informed by considerable experience. The writing style is straightforward and clear. The authors stick resolutely to their goal of producing an introductory text, not a complete treatment, on programming in Mathematica. As such it is... John Locke's Politics of Moral Consensus ‘… The book is written in a very accessible and often … punchy way … In its overall thesis that liberalism requires a moral/religious underpinning, the book is very interesting and stimulating.’ Roger Woolhouse, University of York
'… engaging and thought-provoking … To the scholar of Locke,...
Writing Scientific Software: A Guide to Good Style The core of scientific computing is designing, writing, testing, debugging and modifying numerical software for application to a vast range of areas: from graphics, meteorology and chemistry to engineering, biology and finance. Scientists, engineers and computer scientists need to write good code, for speed, clarity, flexibility and ease of re-use.... Dynamical Systems and Fractals: Computer Graphics Experiments with Pascal This study of chaos, fractals and complex dynamics is intended for anyone familiar with computers. While keeping the mathematics to a simple level with few formulas, the reader is introduced to an area of current scientific research that was scarcely possible until the availability of computers. The book is divided into two main parts; the... Secure Communicating Systems: Design, Analysis, and Implementation This volume details what every computer scientist ought to know about cryptographic systems, security protocols, and secure information flow in programs. Highlights include discussions of the new advanced encryption standard "Rijndael"; an optimal public-key encryption using RSA which turns "textbook RSA" into a practical...
