Metonymy: Hidden Shortcuts in Language, Thought and Communication (Cambridge Studies in Cognitive Linguistics)
Metonymy: Hidden Shortcuts in Language, Thought and Communication (Cambridge Studies in Cognitive Linguistics)

'Metonymy' is a type of figurative language used in everyday conversation, a form of shorthand that allows us to use our shared knowledge to communicate with fewer words than we would otherwise need. 'I'll pencil you in' and 'let me give you a hand' are both examples of metonymic language. Metonymy serves a wide...

Linear Algebra (Textbooks in Mathematics)
Linear Algebra (Textbooks in Mathematics)
What you hold in your hand or—this is the 21st century—view on screen shouldn’t exist.

Let me explain. Mathematics is often taught by presenting students with a broad concept, like linear independence, and then a set of tools for identifying, using, or creating it. More rigorous courses might

Foundations and Novel Approaches in Data Mining (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Foundations and Novel Approaches in Data Mining (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Data-mining has become a popular research topic in recent years for the treatment of the "data rich and information poor" syndrome. Currently, application oriented engineers are only concerned with their immediate problems, which results in an ad hoc method of problem solving. Researchers, on the other hand, lack an understanding of the...

I wrote this book with tinkerers in mind—that is to say, tinkerers of various levels of familiarity with del.icio.us in particular and Web development skill in general.Whether you’re just getting on your way to being a power user at del.icio.us, or whether you’re a hardcore Web development guru who’s running your own...
The New York City Subway System (Building America: Then and Now)
The New York City Subway System (Building America: Then and Now)
In 1912, workers digging to create the Broadway Subway, north of Murray Street in lower Manhattan, hit a brick wall approximately 21 feet (6.4 meters) below the street surface. Breaking through the wall, the laborers came upon a tunnel 9 feet (2.7 m) in diameter and lined with eight- inch- thick (20.32 centimeters) bricks. Two rails led into a...
Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams (3rd Edition)
Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams (3rd Edition)

Peopleware has long been one of my two favorite books on software engineering. Its underlying strength is its base of immense real experience, much of it quantified. Many, many varied projects have been reflected on and distilled; but what we are given is not just lifeless distillate, but vivid examples from...

Data Networks, IP and the Internet: Protocols, Design and Operation
Data Networks, IP and the Internet: Protocols, Design and Operation
Modern data networks are all based on the Internet or on IP (Internet Protocol). But many people remain confused by multiprotocol networks. How do all the protocols fit together? How do I build a network? What do all the components do? What sort of problems should I expect?

Data Networks, IP and the Internet is intended not only for...

Designing Interfaces

Designing a good interface isn't easy. Users demand software that is well-behaved, good-looking, and easy to use. Your clients or managers demand originality and a short time to market. Your UI technology -- web applications, desktop software, even mobile devices -- may give you the tools you need, but little guidance on how to use them...
