Parallel Programming: for Multicore and Cluster Systems
Innovations in hardware architecture, like hyper-threading or multicore processors, mean that parallel computing resources are available for inexpensive desktop computers. In only a few years, many standard software products will be based on concepts of parallel programming implemented on such hardware, and the range of applications will be...
Free as in Freedom: Richard Stallman's Crusade for Free Software In 1984, Richard Stallman launched the GNU Project for the purpose of developing a complete UNIX-like operating system that would allow for free software use. What he developed was the GNU operating system. (GNU is a recursive acronym for "GNU's Not UNIX,'' and it is pronounced guh-NEW. Linux is a variant of the GNU operating system.) This... Computability Theory: An Introduction to Recursion Theory
The study of the class of computable partial functions (i.e., recursive partial functions)
stands at the intersection of three fields: mathematics, theoretical computer science,
Mathematically, computability theory originates from the concept of an algorithm.
It leads to a classification of functions according...
