Optimizing C ++, 9780139774300 (0139774300), Prentice Hall, 1998
Written in an exceptionally clear style that doesn't skimp on technical detail, Steve Heller's guide offers several high-performance search and data-compression algorithms, which are all you need to add speed to C++. Early sections of the book address the advantages of optimizing C++, which the author considers something of a lost art. Instead of just investing in faster hardware, the author makes the case that optimizing code can result in faster, more useful programs.

The heart of Optimizing C++ consists of several case studies of database problems that show various searching and compression algorithms, the author's source code, and careful explanation of the solutions. The author users hash coding, caching, Radix40, and binary-coded decimal (BCD) data representation in a supermarket price-lookup database. Distribution-counting sort algorithms and bitmaps that store data efficiently are both used to help build a mailing-list system. In some of the most useful sections of this book, the author looks at Huffman coding and dynamic hashing.

In every case, the author takes care to explain the details of each algorithm and its advantages and disadvantages for your own code. The book closes with a handy listing of all the algorithms presented and a thorough glossary for the terms used in the text. In all, Optimizing C++ presents some excellent C++ expertise, explained with enough clarity for even beginning or intermediate programmers. --Richard Dragan

Functional Programming: Practice and Theory
Functional Programming: Practice and Theory
There is more to functional programming than simply programming in a functional language. As explained in Section 1.1,1 view functional pro gramming as a new programming paradigm, comparable in importance to structured programming. As such, it has value as a discipline of thought even in the absence of functional programming...
The New Media Reader
The New Media Reader
This reader collects the texts, videos, and computer programs--many of them now almost impossible to find--that chronicle the history and form the foundation of the still-emerging field of new media. General introductions by Janet Murray and Lev Manovich, along with short introductions to each of the texts, place the works in their historical...
Thyroid Cytopathology (Essentials in Cytopathology)
Thyroid Cytopathology (Essentials in Cytopathology)

Advances in molecular and genetics-based diagnostics are driving an increased interest in cytopathology, as cytological specimens are the ideal substrate for this new technology. Although there are a handful of comprehensive, standard texts on the market, there is a need for portable, more concise books for easy reference. Thus, the inception...

Quantum Mechanics: A Paradigms Approach
Quantum Mechanics: A Paradigms Approach

This innovative new text presents quantum mechanics in a manner that directly reflects the methods used in modern physics research—making the material more approachable and preparing students more thoroughly for real research. Most texts in this area start with a bit of history and then move directly to...

Mental Reality, Second Edition, with a new appendix (Representation and Mind)
Mental Reality, Second Edition, with a new appendix (Representation and Mind)

In Mental Reality, Galen Strawson argues that much contemporary philosophy of mind gives undue primacy of place to publicly observable phenomena, nonmental phenomena, and behavioral phenomena (understood as publicly observable phenomena) in its account of the nature of mind. It does so at the expense of the phenomena of conscious...
