Signals and Boundaries: Building Blocks for Complex Adaptive Systems
Signals and Boundaries: Building Blocks for Complex Adaptive Systems

Complex adaptive systems (cas), including ecosystems, governments, biological cells, and markets, are characterized by intricate hierarchical arrangements of boundaries and signals. In ecosystems, for example, niches act as semi-permeable boundaries, and smells and visual patterns serve as signals; governments have departmental hierarchies...

Experiments in the Machine Interpretation of Visual Motion
Experiments in the Machine Interpretation of Visual Motion

If robots are to act intelligently in everyday environments, they must have a perception of motion and its consequences. This book describes experimental advances made in the interpretation of visual motion over the last few years that have moved researchers closer to emulating the way in which we recover information about the surrounding...

At Your Service: Service-Oriented Computing from an EU Perspective (Cooperative Information Systems)
At Your Service: Service-Oriented Computing from an EU Perspective (Cooperative Information Systems)

Service-Oriented Applications and Architectures (SOAs) have captured the interest of industry as a way to support business-to-business interaction, and the SOA market grew by $4.9 billion in 2005. SOAs and in particular service-oriented computing (SOC) represent a promising approach in the development of adaptive distributed systems. With...

Internet Success: A Study of Open-Source Software Commons
Internet Success: A Study of Open-Source Software Commons

The use of open-source software (OSS)--readable software source code that can be copied, modified, and distributed freely--has 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...

Foundations of Machine Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning series)
Foundations of Machine Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning series)

This graduate-level textbook introduces fundamental concepts and methods in machine learning. It describes several important modern algorithms, provides the theoretical underpinnings of these algorithms, and illustrates key aspects for their application. The authors aim to present novel theoretical tools and concepts while giving concise...

Coding Places: Software Practice in a South American City (Acting with Technology)
Coding Places: Software Practice in a South American City (Acting with Technology)

Software development would seem to be a quintessential example of today's Internet-enabled "knowledge work"--a global profession not bound by the constraints of geography. In Coding Places, Yuri Takhteyev looks at the work of software developers who inhabit two contexts: a geographical area--in this case, greater Rio de...

Foundations of Robotics: Analysis and Control
Foundations of Robotics: Analysis and Control

Foundations of Robotics presents the fundamental concepts and methodologies for the analysis, design, and control of robot manipulators. It explains the physical meaning of the concepts and equations used, and it provides, in an intuitively clear way, the necessary background in kinetics, linear algebra, and control theory....

Scalable Input/Output: Achieving System Balance (Scientific and Engineering Computation)
Scalable Input/Output: Achieving System Balance (Scientific and Engineering Computation)

As we enter the "decade of data," the disparity between the vast amount of data storage capacity (measurable in terabytes and petabytes) and the bandwidth available for accessing it has created an input/output bottleneck that is proving to be a major constraint on the effective use of scientific data for research. Scalable...

Computing: A Concise History (MIT Press Essential Knowledge)
Computing: A Concise History (MIT Press Essential Knowledge)

The history of computing could be told as the story of hardware and software, or the story of the Internet, or the story of "smart" hand-held devices, with subplots involving IBM, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, and Twitter. In this concise and accessible account of the invention and development of digital technology, computer historian...

A Little Java, A Few Patterns
A Little Java, A Few Patterns

Java is a new object-oriented programming language that was developed by Sun Microsystems for programming the Internet and intelligent appliances. In a very short time it has become one of the most widely used programming languages for education as well as commercial applications.Design patterns, which have moved object-oriented programming...

Autonomous Bidding Agents: Strategies and Lessons from the Trading Agent Competition
Autonomous Bidding Agents: Strategies and Lessons from the Trading Agent Competition

E-commerce increasingly provides opportunities for autonomous bidding agents: computer programs that bid in electronic markets without direct human intervention. Automated bidding strategies for an auction of a single good with a known valuation are fairly straightforward; designing strategies for simultaneous auctions with interdependent...

The Practice of Prolog (Logic Programming)
The Practice of Prolog (Logic Programming)
The raison d'etre of this book is to encourage programmers to use Prolog in their day-to-day work. Personally, I find the language exciting to use, and wish to share the excitement with others. More pragmatically, I have seen how certain moderately-sized pieces of software are far easier to write in Prolog than in any other...
