Dieses Lehrbuch will den Leser nicht nur in das Programmieren im Kleinen, in Algorithmen und Datenstrukturen, sondern auch in objekt- und komponentenorientierte Softwaretechniken einf?hren, um ihn auf das systematische Konstruieren professioneller software program vorzubereiten. software program erscheint als Architektur - als strukturierte Ansammlung von Komponenten, die ?ber definierte Schnittstellen interagieren. Der Autor entwickelt die Lehrinhalte anhand aufeinander aufbauender Beispielkomponenten, wobei er Software-Qualit?tsmerkmale wie Wartbarkeit und Wiederverwendbarkeit behandelt. Der Leser lernt nach dem Ansatz des schrittweisen ?ffnens von Black packing containers zun?chst, Komponenten zu benutzen, bevor er sie implementiert und erweitert. Die Methode des Spezifizierens und Programmierens durch Vertrag setzt der Autor konsequent ein, um zu zeigen, wie guy zuverl?ssige, korrekte software program entwickeln kann. Neben grafischen Notationen dient die objekt- und komponentenorientierte Programmiersprache part Pascal dazu, die softwaretechnischen Konzepte zu vermitteln. Das Buch bietet Grundlagen, ohne Spezialkenntnisse vorauszusetzen; es richtet sich vor allem an Einsteiger in die Informatik.

Download Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the by P. W. Singer PDF

By P. W. Singer

An army specialist finds how technology fiction is quickly changing into truth at the battlefield, altering not only how wars are fought, but in addition the politics, economics, legislation, and ethics that encompass battle itself

P. W. Singer’s prior books foretold the increase of personal army contractors and the appearance of kid soldiers— predictions that proved all too actual. Now, he explores the best revolution in army affairs because the atom bomb—the introduction of robot warfare.

We are only commencing to see an incredible shift in army know-how that threatens to make the stuff of I,Robot and the Terminator all too actual. greater than seven- thousand robot structures are actually in Iraq. Pilots in Nevada are remotely killing terrorists in Afghanistan. Scientists are debating simply how smart—and how lethal—to make their present robot prototypes. and lots of of the main popular technological know-how fiction authors are secretly consulting for the Pentagon at the subsequent generation.

Blending ancient proof with interviews from the sector, Singer vividly indicates that as those applied sciences multiply, they are going to have profound results at the entrance strains in addition to at the politics again domestic. relocating people off the battlefield makes wars more uncomplicated to begin, yet extra advanced to struggle. exchanging males with machines could avoid wasting lives, yet will decrease the morale and mental boundaries to killing. The “warrior ethos,” which has lengthy outlined soldiers’ identification, will erode, as will the legislation of conflict that experience ruled army clash for generations.

Paradoxically, those new applied sciences also will deliver battle to our doorstep. As different international locations or even terrorist agencies begin to construct or purchase their very own robot guns, the robotic revolution may undermine America’s army preeminence. whereas his research is unnerving, there’s an impossible to resist gee-whiz caliber to the ideas Singer uncovers. stressed for warfare travels from Iraq to work out those robots in wrestle to the latter-day “skunk works” in America’s suburbia, the place tomorrow’s applied sciences of warfare are quietly being designed. In Singer’s fingers, the way forward for struggle is as interesting because it is horrifying.

Download Fearless Genius: The Digital Revolution in Silicon Valley by Doug Menuez PDF

By Doug Menuez

An eye-opening chronicle of the Silicon Valley know-how increase, taking pictures key moments within the careers of Steve Jobs and greater than seventy different best innovators as they created today's electronic international

In the spring of 1985, a technological revolution used to be lower than method in Silicon Valley, and documentary photographer Doug Menuez was once there looking for a story-something colossal. even as, Steve Jobs was once being compelled out of his liked Apple and beginning over with a brand new corporation, subsequent desktop. His objective was once to construct a supercomputer with the ability to remodel schooling. Menuez had chanced on his tale: he proposed to photo Jobs and his notable staff as they outfitted this new computing device, from notion to product release.

In an awesome act of belief, Jobs granted Menuez limitless entry to the corporate, and, for the following 3 years, Menuez used to be in a position to get on movie the spirit and substance of innovation in the course of the daily activities of the world's best know-how guru.

From there, the venture elevated to incorporate the main trailblazing businesses in Silicon Valley, all of which granted Menuez an analogous entire entry that Jobs had. Menuez photographed backstage with John Warnock at Adobe, John Sculley at Apple, invoice Gates at Microsoft, John Doerr at Kleiner Perkins, invoice pleasure at solar Microsystems, Gordon Moore and Andy Grove at Intel, Marc Andreessen at Netscape, and greater than seventy different prime businesses and innovators. it might be fifteen years ahead of Menuez stopped capturing, simply because the dotcom bubble burst. a unprecedented period used to be coming to its shut.

With his singular behind-the-scenes entry to those notoriously insular businesses, Menuez used to be current for moments of heartbreaking failure and unforeseen luck, moments that made background, and moments that exposed the typical lives of the people who made it take place. this era of speedy, radical switch might impact virtually each element of our tradition and our lives in methods either huge and small and could additionally create extra jobs and wealth than the other time in human heritage. And Doug Menuez used to be there, a witness to a revolution.

Download Financial Risk Forecasting : The Theory and Practice of by Jon Danielsson PDF

By Jon Danielsson

Monetary hazard Forecasting is an entire advent to functional quantitative danger administration, with a spotlight on marketplace threat. Derived from the authors instructing notes and years spent education practitioners in possibility administration innovations, it brings jointly the 3 key disciplines of finance, information and modeling (programming), to supply an intensive grounding in chance administration techniques.Written by way of popular threat professional Jon Danielsson, the ebook starts with an creation to monetary markets and marketplace costs, volatility clusters, fats tails and nonlinear dependence. It then is going directly to current volatility forecasting with either univatiate and multivatiate tools, discussing a few of the tools utilized by undefined, with a unique concentrate on the GARCH relatives of versions. The review of the standard of forecasts is mentioned intimately. subsequent, the most innovations in probability and versions to forecast possibility are mentioned, particularly volatility, value-at-risk and anticipated shortfall. the point of interest is either on hazard in easy resources similar to shares and foreign currency, but in addition calculations of danger in bonds and suggestions, with analytical equipment equivalent to delta-normal VaR and duration-normal VaR and Monte Carlo simulation. The e-book then strikes directly to the review of chance types with tools like backtesting, through a dialogue on pressure checking out. The e-book concludes through focussing at the forecasting of probability in very huge and unusual occasions with severe worth idea and contemplating the underlying assumptions at the back of nearly each probability version in functional use – that chance is exogenous – and what occurs while these assumptions are violated.Every procedure offered brings jointly theoretical dialogue and derivation of key equations and a dialogue of concerns in useful implementation. every one process is applied in either MATLAB and R, of the main known mathematical programming languages for threat forecasting with which the reader can enforce the types illustrated within the book.The publication comprises 4 appendices. the 1st introduces uncomplicated ideas in statistics and monetary time sequence pointed out through the ebook. the second one and 3rd introduce R and MATLAB, delivering a dialogue of the fundamental implementation of the software program programs. And the ultimate appears on the thought of utmost chance, particularly concerns in implementation and testing.The booklet is followed by way of an internet site - www.financialriskforecasting.com – which positive aspects downloadable code as utilized in the booklet.
