  Internet Success: A Study of OpenSource Software Commons
The use of opensource software (OSS)readable software source code that can be copied, modified, and distributed freelyhas expanded dramatically in recent years. The number of OSS projects hosted on SourceForge.net (the largest hosting Web site for OSS), for example, grew from just over 100,000 in 2006 to more than 250,000 at the...   Introduction to Algorithms, Third Edition (International Edition)
A new edition of the essential text and professional reference, with substantial new material on such topics as vEB trees, multithreaded algorithms, dynamic programming, and edgebased flow.
Some books on algorithms are rigorous but incomplete; others cover masses of material but lack rigor. Introduction to Algorithms... 

Algorithms Unlocked
Have you ever wondered how your GPS can find the fastest way to your destination, selecting one route from seemingly countless possibilities in mere seconds? How your credit card account number is protected when you make a purchase over the Internet? The answer is algorithms. And how do these mathematical formulations translate themselves...   Ant Colony Optimization (Bradford Books)
The complex social behaviors of ants have been much studied by science, and computer scientists are now finding that these behavior patterns can provide models for solving difficult combinatorial optimization problems. The attempt to develop algorithms inspired by one aspect of ant behavior, the ability to find what computer scientists would...   Distributed Algorithms: An Intuitive Approach (The MIT Press)
A comprehensive guide to distributed algorithms that emphasizes examples and exercises rather than mathematical argumentation.
This book offers students and researchers a guide to distributed algorithms that emphasizes examples and exercises rather than the intricacies of mathematical models. It avoids mathematical... 

Thinking as Computation: A First Course (MIT Press)
This book guides students through an exploration of the idea that thinking might be understood as a form of computation. Students make the connection between thinking and computing by learning to write computer programs for a variety of tasks that require thought, including solving puzzles, understanding natural language, recognizing objects...   An Introduction to Genetic Algorithms (Complex Adaptive Systems)
Science arises from the very human desire to understand and control the world. Over the course of history, we
humans have gradually built up a grand edifice of knowledge that enables us to predict, to varying extents, the
weather, the motions of the planets, solar and lunar eclipses, the courses of diseases, the rise and fall...   Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media (Media Origins)
A feminist media history of quantification, uncovering the stories behind the tools and technologies we use to count, measure, and weigh our lives and realities.
AngloAmerican culture has used media to measure and quantify lives for centuries. Historical journal entries map the details of everyday life, while death...
