Rules of Play: Game Design Fundamentals
Rules of Play: Game Design Fundamentals
For hundreds of years, the field of game design has drifted along under the radar of culture, producing timeless masterpieces and masterful time-wasters without drawing much attention to itself-without, in fact, behaving like a "field" at all. Suddenly, powered by the big bang of computer technology, game design has...
Software Abstractions: Logic, Language, and Analysis
Software Abstractions: Logic, Language, and Analysis

As a programmer working for Logica UK in London in the mid-1980’s, I became a passionate advocate of formal methods. Extrapolating from small successes with VDM and JSP, I was sure that widespread use of formal methods would bring an end to the software crisis.

One approach especially intrigued me. John Guttag and Jim

The Audio Programming Book
The Audio Programming Book

This comprehensive handbook of mathematical and programming techniques for audio signal processing will be an essential reference for all computer musicians, computer scientists, engineers, and anyone interested in audio. Designed to be used by readers with varying levels of programming expertise, it not only provides the foundations for...

Logic and Information Flow (Foundations of Computing)
Logic and Information Flow (Foundations of Computing)

The thirteen chapters written expressly for this book by logicians, theoretical computer scientists, philosophers, and semanticists address, from the perspective of mathematical logic, the problems of understanding and studying the flow of information through any information-processing system.The logic of information flow has applications in...

Bayesian Brain: Probabilistic Approaches to Neural Coding (Computational Neuroscience)
Bayesian Brain: Probabilistic Approaches to Neural Coding (Computational Neuroscience)

A Bayesian approach can contribute to an understanding of the brain on multiple levels, by giving normative predictions about how an ideal sensory system should combine prior knowledge and observation, by providing mechanistic interpretation of the dynamic functioning of the brain circuit, and by suggesting optimal ways of deciphering...

Nightwork: A History of Hacks and Pranks at MIT
Nightwork: A History of Hacks and Pranks at MIT

An MIT "hack" is an ingenious, benign, andanonymous prank or practical joke, often requiring engineering or scientificexpertise and often pulled off under cover of darkness -- instances of campus mischief sometimes coinciding withApril Fool's Day, final exams, or commencement. (It should not beconfused with the sometimes...

Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python
Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python

This book introduces students with little or no prior programming experience to the art of computational problem solving using Python and various Python libraries, including PyLab. It provides students with skills that will enable them to make productive use of computational techniques, including some of the tools and techniques of "data...

The Design and Analysis of Efficient Learning Algorithms (ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award)
The Design and Analysis of Efficient Learning Algorithms (ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award)

Approaches to building machines that can learn from experience abound - from connectionist learning algorithms and genetic algorithms to statistical mechanics and a learning system based on Piaget's theories of early childhood development. This monograph describes results derived from the mathematically oriented framework of computational...

Sonic Interaction Design
Sonic Interaction Design

Sound is an integral part of every user experience but a neglected medium in design disciplines. Design of an artifact's sonic qualities is often limited to the shaping of functional, representational, and signaling roles of sound. The interdisciplinary field of sonic interaction design (SID) challenges these prevalent approaches by...

The Machine Question: Critical Perspectives on AI, Robots, and Ethics
The Machine Question: Critical Perspectives on AI, Robots, and Ethics

One of the enduring concerns of moral philosophy is deciding who or what is deserving of ethical consideration. Much recent attention has been devoted to the "animal question" -- consideration of the moral status of nonhuman animals. In this book, David Gunkel takes up the "machine question": whether and to what extent...

Quantum Strangeness: Wrestling with Bell's Theorem and the Ultimate Nature of Reality (The MIT Press)
Quantum Strangeness: Wrestling with Bell's Theorem and the Ultimate Nature of Reality (The MIT Press)
A physicist's efforts to understand the enigma that is quantum mechanics.

Quantum mechanics is one of the glories of our age. The theory lies at the heart of modern society. Quantum mechanics is one of our most valuable forecasters—a “great predictor.” It has immeasurably altered our conception of the...

Press On: Principles of Interaction Programming
Press On: Principles of Interaction Programming

Interactive systems and devices, from mobile phones to office copiers, do not fulfill their potential for a wide variety of reasons--not all of them technical. Press On shows that we can design better interactive systems and devices if we draw on sound computer science principles. It uses state machines and graph theory as a powerful and...
