Math Puzzles and Games, Grades 6-8: Over 300 Reproducible Puzzles that Teach Math and Problem Solving
Math Puzzles and Games, Grades 6-8: Over 300 Reproducible Puzzles that Teach Math and Problem Solving
In the 1950s we punished misbehaving students in middle school or junior high school by making them stay after school to do 100 multiplication or long-division math problems. Mathematics was taught in a highly ordered and mechanically repetitive manner with the objective being to master basic arithmetic skills. A decade later New Math emerged as a...
Computers Under Attack: Intruders, Worms and Viruses
Computers Under Attack: Intruders, Worms and Viruses

This book is broken down into 6 parts. The first describes the emergence of a worldwide network of computers, here called Worldnet, and the practices that people have engaged in as a result. The second part describes the problem of electronic breakins. The third part deals with the phenomenon of worms. The fourth part deals with viruses. The...

The Economics of Open Source Software Development
The Economics of Open Source Software Development
Open Source Software (OSS) development appears to present a stark contrast to traditional production and innovation methods and an unlikely contestant in the marketplace. Some of the most striking features are that OSS development is based on contributions of volunteer programmers, that these programmers only associated with each other through...
Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture
Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture

The practice of enterprise application development has benefited from the emergence of many new enabling technologies. Multi-tiered object-oriented platforms, such as Java and .NET, have become commonplace. These new tools and technologies are capable of building powerful applications, but they are not easily implemented....

Swarm Intelligence: From Natural to Artificial Systems (Santa Fe Institute Studies on the Sciences of Complexity)
Swarm Intelligence: From Natural to Artificial Systems (Santa Fe Institute Studies on the Sciences of Complexity)
Social insects--ants, bees, termites, and wasps--can be viewed as powerful problem-solving systems with sophisticated collective intelligence. Composed of simple interacting agents, this intelligence lies in the networks of interactions among individuals and between individuals and the environment. A fascinating subject, social insects are also a...
Information: A Very Short Introduction
Information: A Very Short Introduction

We live in a society that is awash with information, but few of us really understand what information is. In this Very Short Introduction, one of the world's leading authorities on the philosophy of information and on information ethics, Luciano Floridi, offers an illuminating exploration of information as it relates to both...

Web Services in the Enterprise: Concepts, Standards, Solutions, and Management (Network and Systems Management)
Web Services in the Enterprise: Concepts, Standards, Solutions, and Management (Network and Systems Management)
The emergence of Web services is transforming traditional enterprises. However, the industry hype surrounding these technologies obscures the understanding of their impact and implications to enterprises.

Here the authors take the "big picture" perspective, offering a thorough understanding of the concepts behind Web service...

Single-Sensor Imaging: Methods and Applications for Digital Cameras (Image Processing Series)
Single-sensor camera image processing methods are becoming increasingly important due to the emergence of digital camera based applications and commercial devices. Presenting the state of the art, Single-Sensor Imaging provides comprehensive coverage of system design, implementation, and application aspects of single-sensor imaging...
Wavelets and Their Applications (Digital Signal and Image Processing series)
Wavelets and Their Applications (Digital Signal and Image Processing series)
Showing how wavelets combine signal in image processing, mathematics, physics, and electrical engineering, this introduction to wavelet technology helps engineers master the basic techniques for using wavelets in such applications as image compression, turbulence, human vision, radar, and earthquake prediction. Among the topics covered are the...
The Coming Robot Revolution: Expectations and Fears About Emerging Intelligent, Humanlike Machines
The Coming Robot Revolution: Expectations and Fears About Emerging Intelligent, Humanlike Machines

Making a robot that looks and behaves like a human being has been the subject of many popular science fiction movies and books. Although the development of such a robot faces many challenges, the making of a virtual human has long been potentially possible. With recent advances in various key technologies related to hardware and...

Systematic Design for Emergence in Cellular Nonlinear Networks: With Applications in Natural Computing and Signal Processing-
Systematic Design for Emergence in Cellular Nonlinear Networks: With Applications in Natural Computing and Signal Processing-
The main problem addressed in this book came out during a Fulbright research fellowship stage at U.C. Berkeley (California, USA, 1996–1998). Then, I had the opportunity to work in the research group of Leon Chua on a subject called CNN (cellular neural/nonlinear network). The CNN, developed in the end of the 1980s was an important step ahead...
Reaction-Diffusion Automata: Phenomenology, Localisations, Computation (Emergence, Complexity and Computation)
Reaction-Diffusion Automata: Phenomenology, Localisations, Computation (Emergence, Complexity and Computation)

Reaction-diffusion and excitable media are amongst most intriguing substrates. Despite apparent simplicity of the physical processes involved the media exhibit a wide range of amazing patterns: from target and spiral waves to travelling localisations and stationary breathing patterns. These media are at the heart of most natural processes,...
