Some time ago, one of my colleagues asked me, “What do you like about SQL Server the
most?” I had heard this question many times before, and so I provided my usual answer:
“SQL Server Internals. I like to understand how the product works and solve complex
problems with this knowledge.”
The main purpose of the present manuscript addresses the development of techniques for the evaluation and the hardening of designs implemented on SRAM-based Field Programmable Gate Arrays against the radiation induced effects such as Single Event Upsets (SEUs) or Soft-Errors (SEs). The perspective of the analysis and the design flows proposed in...
THIS book is written primarily for undergraduate students of science and engineering, and presents an elementary introduction to some of the major branches of modern algebra - namely, matrices, sets and groups. Of these three topics, matrices are of especial importance at undergraduate level, and consequently more space is devoted to their study...
In my first book on geometric algebra in 2007 the preface described how I had been completely
surprised by the existence of geometric algebra, especially after having recently completed a book
on vector analysis where it was not even mentioned! So why am I writing a second book on the
same subject?Well it’s not because I have...
In fall 2010 Michael Stephens from Manning contacted me about writing a Scala Book.
I was working for a small virtualization/security startup where I had been learning
Scala and applying it to our codebase. During that first conversation Michael and I discussed
the Scala ecosystem and what kind of a book would best...
Back in early 2000 I first tried to get seriously started with IPv6. But I
couldn’t find any documentation that helped me to understand how to make
it work in my usual environment. Being swamped with work at my then job
I eventually gave up, frustrated for the first time.
Research has deeply investigated several issues related to the use of integrity constraints on relational databases. In particular, a great deal of attention has been devoted to the problem of extracting "reliable" information from databases containing pieces of information inconsistent with regard to some integrity constraints. In...
The idea for this book was formed during the doctorate of Bernd Iser. Bernd
Iser was working on efficient and robust bandwidth extension algorithms in
hands-free systems for Harman/Becker Automotive Systems. It turned out
that bandwidth extension of speech signals was a topic of appreciable interest,
where lots of scientific...
This established textbook is didactically excellent and it unifies intuitiveness with extraordinary precision of its terminology and their derivation. It was developed as manuscript to teach students in electrical engineering, and has served to do so for thousands of students over 2 decades.
Reference management is the process of storing, managing, retrieving, and citing references from various sources. Learning effective reference management is critically important for healthcare and biomedical professionals as it is a major component of the process of scientific manuscript writing. Effective reference management is also useful for...
Mathematica bv Example is intended to bridge the gap which has existed between the very
elementary handbooks available on Mathematica and those reference books written for the more
advanced Mathematica users. This book is an extension of a manuscript which was developed to
quickly introduce enough Mathematica commands to a group of...
