Digital Library Use: Social Practice in Design and Evaluation (Digital Libraries and Electronic Publishing)
Digital Library Use: Social Practice in Design and Evaluation (Digital Libraries and Electronic Publishing)
The contributors to this volume view digital libraries (DLs) from a social as well as technological perspective. They see DLs as sociotechnical systems, networks of technology, information artifacts, and people and practices interacting with the larger world of work and society. As Bruce Schatz observes in his foreword, for a digital library to be...

Turing (A Novel about Computation)
Turing (A Novel about Computation)
Our hero is Turing, an interactive tutoring program and namesake (or virtual emanation?) of Alan Turing, World War II code breaker and father of computer science. In this unusual novel, Turing's idiosyncratic version of intellectual history from a computational point of view unfolds in tandem with the story of a love affair involving Ethel, a...

Essentials of Programming Languages, 3rd Edition
Essentials of Programming Languages, 3rd Edition

This book brings you face-to-face with the most fundamental idea in computer programming:

The interpreter for a computer language is just another program. It sounds obvious, doesn’t it? But the implications are profound. If you are a computational theorist, the interpreter idea recalls Gödel’s discovery of

Digital Citizenship: The Internet, Society, and Participation
Digital Citizenship: The Internet, Society, and Participation
Just as education has promoted democracy and economic growth, the Internet has the potential to benefit society as a whole. Digital citizenship, or the ability to participate in society online, promotes social inclusion. But statistics show that significant segments of the population are still excluded from digital citizenship.

Principles of Model Checking
Principles of Model Checking
Our growing dependence on increasingly complex computer and software systems necessitates the development of formalisms, techniques, and tools for assessing functional properties of these systems. One such technique that has emerged in the last twenty years is model checking, which systematically (and automatically) checks whether a model of a...
Beowulf Cluster Computing with Linux, Second Edition (Scientific and Engineering Computation)
Beowulf Cluster Computing with Linux, Second Edition (Scientific and Engineering Computation)
This how-to guide provides step-by-step instructions for building a Beowulf-type computer, including the physical elements that make up a clustered PC, the software required, and insights on how to organize the code to exploit parallelism.

Use of Beowulf clusters (collections of off-the-shelf commodity computers programmed to act in...

Software Abstractions : Logic, Language, and Analysis
Software Abstractions : Logic, Language, and Analysis
Software is built on abstractions. Pick the right ones, and programming
will flow naturally from design; modules will have small and simple interfaces;
and new functionality will more likely fit in without extensive
reorganization. Pick the wrong ones, and programming will be a series
of nasty surprises: interfaces will become

Design Concepts in Programming Languages
Design Concepts in Programming Languages
This book is the text for 6.821 Programming Languages, an entry-level, singlesemester, graduate-level course at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The students that take our course know how to program and are mathematically inclined, but they typically have not had an introduction to programming language design or its mathematical...
