The art of compiler construction is a fascinating subject- It integrates the mathe
matical foundations of formal languages, a wealth of well-established techniques for
syntactic analysis, semantic analysis and optimization, and a tremendous amount
of practical experience accumulated over the past four decades in designing and us
ing...

This is an in-depth review, by eight respected researchers of the electrochemistry of semiconductors and electronics. The book covers possible electrochemical avenues towards the goals of achieving greater semiconductor purity, crystal uniformity, and circuit density, and thus, faster more compact electronic devices.

CRC Standard Curves and Surfaces is a comprehensive illustrated catalog of curves and surfaces of geometric figures and algebraic, transcendental, and integral equations used in elementary and advanced mathematics. More than 800 graphics images are featured. Based on the successful CRC Handbook of Mathematical Curves and Surfaces, this new...

No less than eighteen authors have put together the second volume of the cichlids yearbook. It was pleasing that almost all contributors to the first volume were able to write down another piece of their knowledge and experience in this one. In addition eight new authors have written for this volume. Another pleasing fact is that Horst Walter...

Contains a complete description of the standard programming language FORTRAN 90, covering all of its features in a format that's easier to read than the standard itself. The book also includes: a chart of command changes from FORTRAN 77 to FORTRAN 90, cross referencing of commands for typical applications from FORTRAN 77 to FORTRAN 90.

Prentice Hall's most important C programming title in years. A companion volume to Kernighan & Ritchie's C PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE. A collection of reusable functions (code for building data structures, code for performing math functions and scientific calculations, etc.) which will save C programmers time and money especially when...

Fundamental of Engineering Electromagnetics not only presents the fundamentals of electromagnetism in a concise and logical manner, but also includes a variety of interesting and important applications. While adapted from his popular and more extensive work, Field and Wave Electromagnetics, this text incorporates a number of innovative...

Are you a reluctant writer? If so, you are in good company. Many scientists, even the most successful ones, would rather get on with their next piece of work than settle down to reporting the last piece. But it is a fact of scientific life that every worthwhile research project must lead to publication or a written report of some kind. Each new...

This book describes the UNIX operating system user commands. It is based on AT&T UNIX System V Release 4 and Berkeley Software Distribution(BSD) 4.3. It provides you the knowledge and insight to fully use the power of the UNIX System.

You may ask what exactly is UNIX? UNIX is several things. It is a computer operating system. It is...

What astonishes me about learning how to program is not that it's so hard, but that it's so easy. Am I nuts? Hardly. It's just that my curse is the curse of a perfect memory, and I remember piano lessons. My poor mother paid $600 in 1962 for a beautiful cherrywood spinet, and every week for two years I trucked off to Wilkins School of Music for a...

This volume is the last of three volumes devoted to the work of one of the most prominent 20th century mathematicians. Throughout his mathematical work, A.N. Kolmogorov (1903-1987) showed great creativity and versatility and his wide-ranging studies in many different areas, led to the solution of conceptual and fundamental problems and the...

Information retrieval covers the problems relating to the effective storage, access, and searching of information required by individuals. Currently, information is continuing to grow exponentially, diversifying into many forms and media. In this complex retrieval labyrinth there is a definite need for increased effort aimed at tailoring IR...
