Mark Weiss uses C++ to provide a smooth introduction to object-oriented design for programmers competent in one other language. Using C++, the book delivers a series of carefully developed examples which illustrate the important concepts of object orientation alongside its main theme of data structures.

A Mathematical Introduction to Robotic Manipulation presents a mathematical formulation of the kinematics, dynamics, and control of robot manipulators. It uses an elegant set of mathematical tools that emphasizes the geometry of robot motion and allows a large class of robotic manipulation problems to be analyzed within a unified...

Part of what it means to be a researcher is to identify what appears to be a relationship that others either have not noticed or have not fully appreciated. Both the Turing test and the frame problem have been significant items of discussion for more than 20 years in the philosophy of artificial intelligence and the philosophy of mind, but there...

This book is devoted to the study of fuzzy reasoning as applied to decision making and control processes. It contains a collection of important contributions covering a wide well-selected range of topics within the field. The book contains twenty-one papers, written by thirty-four distinguished contributors and is divided into five...

This treatise investigates a number of problems related to treewidth and pathwidth of graphs. The main objective is to obtain good bounds on the complexity of determining the treewidth and pathwidth for various classes of graphs.

Originating from the author's Ph.D. thesis, this monograph presents original own work....

Studying modern database languages one recognizes that there is a gap between language
features and theoretical foundations:

* Studies of the formal foundations exist for the relational data model but not
for the Entity-Relationship model, which is a model used by numerous practical
people. Also, most extensions of...

Inductive Learning Algorithms for Complex Systems Modeling is a professional monograph that surveys new types of learning algorithms for modeling complex scientific systems in science and engineering. The book features discussions of algorithm development, structure, and behavior; comprehensive coverage of all types of algorithms useful for this...

Historically, computer security is related to both cryptography and access
control in operating systems. Cryptography, although mostly applied in
the military and diplomacy, was used to protect communication channels
and storage facilities (especially the backups). In the seventies there was a
breakthrough in cryptography - the...

Covers the use of dynamic and interactive computer graphics in linear regression analysis, focusing on analytical graphics. Features new techniques like plot rotation. The authors have composed their own regression code, using Xlisp-Stat language called R-code, which is a nearly complete system for linear regression analysis and can be...

This exciting new text teaches the foundations of electric circuits and develops a thinking style and a problem-solving methodology that is based on physical insight. Designed for the first course or sequence in circuits in electrical engineering, the approach imparts not only an appreciation for the elegance of the mathematics of circuit...

An introduction to circuit design and programming with embedded computers. Circuit and code examples show how to use the devices in a variety of applications.

This book is a hands-on guide to designing, building, and testing microcontroller-based devices. Microcontrollers, or single-chip computers, are ideal for projects that require...

This book contains papers first presented at the 4th International Workshop on Field-
Programmable Logic and Applications (FPL'94), held in Prague, Czech Republic,
September 7 - 9, 1994.

The FPL'94 workshop was organized by the Czech Technical University and the University
of Kaiserslautern, in co-operation with IEEE...
