The Technical and Social History of Software Engineering

“Capers Jones has accumulated the most comprehensive data on every aspect of software engineering, and has performed the most scientific analysis on this data. Now, Capers performs yet another invaluable service to our industry, by documenting, for the first time, its long and fascinating history....

Semantic Techniques in Quantum Computation
Semantic Techniques in Quantum Computation

The idea of quantum computation, in the algorithmic sense, originated from the suggestion by Feynman (1982) that a computer based on the principles of quantum mechanics might be capable of efficiently simulating quantum systems of interest to physicists; such simulation seems to be very difficult with classical computers. Feynman’s...

A Science of Operations: Machines, Logic and the Invention of Programming (History of Computing)
A Science of Operations: Machines, Logic and the Invention of Programming (History of Computing)

Today, computers fulfil a dazzling array of roles, a flexibility resulting from the great range of programs that can be run on them.

A Science of Operations examines the history of what we now call programming, defined not simply as computer programming, but more broadly as the definition of the steps involved in...

The Measure of All Minds: Evaluating Natural and Artificial Intelligence
The Measure of All Minds: Evaluating Natural and Artificial Intelligence

Are psychometric tests valid for a new reality of artificial intelligence systems, technology-enhanced humans, and hybrids yet to come? Are the Turing Test, the ubiquitous CAPTCHAs, and the various animal cognition tests the best alternatives? In this fascinating and provocative book, José Hernández-Orallo formulates major...

A Course in Formal Languages, Automata and Groups (Universitext)
A Course in Formal Languages, Automata and Groups (Universitext)
This book is based on notes for a master’s course given at Queen Mary, University of London, in the 1998/9 session. Such courses in London are quite short, and the course consisted essentially of the material in the first three chapters, together with a two-hour lecture on connections with group theory. Chapter 5 is a...

The Code Book: The Evolution of Secrecy from Mary, Queen of Scots to Quantum Cryptography
The Code Book: The Evolution of Secrecy from Mary, Queen of Scots to Quantum Cryptography

Codes have decided the fates of empires, countries, and monarchies throughout recorded history. Mary, Queen of Scots was put to death by her cousin, Queen Elizabeth, for the high crime of treason after spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham cracked the secret code she used to communicate with her conspirators. And thus the course of British history...
