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.
