If you want to write high-quality, efficient code that's easily integrated with other languages and tools, this hands-on book will help you be productive with Python quickly -- whether you're new to programming or just new to Python. It's an easy-to-follow self-paced tutorial, based on author and Python expert Mark Lutz's popular training course.
Object Oriented Programming via Fortran 90 Keywords object-oriented, encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, Fortran 90 Abstract There is a widely available object-oriented (OO) programming language that is usually overlooked in the OO Analysis, OO Design, OO Programming literature. It was designed with most of the features of languages like C++, Eiffel, and Smalltalk. It has extensive and efficient numerical abilities including concise array and matrix handling, like Matlab®.
The Energy Efficiency Manual is your primary tool for improving energy efficiency and reducing
your utility costs. It is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide that is designed to help you manage
your activities effectively and with confidence.
The core of the Energy Efficiency Manual is 400 energy efficiency “Measures.” The Measures
have a standard format that makes it easy to organize them into an optimum efficiency program for
your facility. Refer to the inside of the front cover to learn how to exploit the Measures....
C++ is a powerful language that unifies high-level programming paradigms, such as object oriented
programming, with low-level efficiencies, such as the ability to directly manipulate memory. For these
reasons, C++ has been embraced as the language of choice among game developers.
Different programming languages support different styles of programming (called programming paradigms). The choice of language used is subject to many considerations, such as company policy, suitability to task, availability of third-party packages, or individual preference. Ideally, the programming language best suited for the task at hand will be selected. Trade-offs from this ideal involve finding enough programmers who know the language to build a team, the availability of compilers for that language, and the efficiency with which programs written in a given language execute.
Activity Based Costing Model to Cost Academic Programs and Estimate Costs for Support Services in California Community Colleges In either case, however, we
can expect little effect of expansions of Tiebout choice on school efficiency, as in the former
even markets with only a few districts can provide market discipline and in the latter no
plausible amount of governmental fragmentation will create efficiency-enhancing incentives
for school administrators.
Written by a LISP expert, this is the most comprehensive tutorial available on the advanced LISP features and programming techniques. It shows how to program in the bottom-up style that is ideal for LISP programming, and includes a unique, practical collection of LISP programming techniques that shows how to take advantage of the languages design for highly efficient programming in a wide variety of (non-artificial intelligence) applications.* uses an innovative bottom-up approach to programming in LISP - an approach that is ideally...
Erlang solves one of the most pressing problems facing developers today: how to write reliable, concurrent, high-performance systems. It's used worldwide by companies who need to produce reliable, efficient, and scalable applications. Invest in learning Erlang now.
Moore's Law is the observation that the amount you can do on a single chip doubles every two years. But Moore's Law is taking a detour.
The field of information and communication technologies continues to evolve and
grow in both the research and the practical domains. However, energy efficiency is an
aspect in communication technologies that until recently was only considered for
embedded, mobile or handheld battery constraint devices.
This book is about a marriage of two compatible yet unlikely partners.
Extreme Programming (XP) is a software development methodology that
enables users, business people, programmers, and computers to communicate
effectively. Perl is a dynamic programming language that lets an XP
team embrace the inevitable change caused by effective communication. Perl
the fixer and doer of the pair, and XP is the organizer and facilitator. Together
they help you build robust software applications efficiently.
Like any good marriage, the partners of Extreme Perl support each other....
Programming Contest is a delightful playground for the exploration of intelligence of
programmers. To start solving problems in contests, first of all, you have to fix your aim.
Some contestants want to increase the number of problems solved by them and the other
contestants want to solve less problems but with more efficiency. Choose any of the two
categories and then start. A contestant without any aim can never prosper in 24 hours
online judge contests. So, think about your aim.[
The purpose of this book is to teach solid idiomatic Go programming using
all the features the language provides, as well as the most commonly used Go
packages from Go’s standard library. The book is also designed to serve as a
useful reference once the language is learned. To meet both of these goals the
book is quite comprehensive and tries to cover every topic in just one place—and
with forward and backward cross-references throughout.
Go is quite C-like in spirit, being a small and efficient language with convenient
low-level facilities such as pointers.
This is the seventh report by the National Research Council Standing Committee
to Review the Research Program of the Partnership for a New Generation
of Vehicles (PNGV). The PNGV program is a cooperative research and development
(R&D) program between the federal government and the United States
Council for Automotive Research (USCAR), whose members are DaimlerChrysler
Corporation, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Corporation (GM).
The Cocoa programming environment—Apple’s powerful set of clean, object-oriented APIs—is increasingly becoming the basis of almost all contemporary Mac OS X development. With its long history of constant refinement and improvement, Cocoa has matured into a sophisticated programming environment that can make Mac OS X application development quick, efficient, and even fun.
Programming for Non-Programmers is online course designed to help non-programmers communicate more efficiently with developers.
Because leading a development team (without being a developer yourself) can sometimes feels like “talking about dancing”, I've created an interactive and easy to follow environment in which to learn the basics.
Large expenses associated with rice production and dependence on energy related inputs like fuel and fertilizer in particular compel rice producers to use management practices that are input efficient and result in least cost. This study uses data envelopment analysis (DEA) to calculate technical efficiency (TE), allocative efficiency (AE), and economic efficiency (EE) for rice production in Arkansas at the field level using data from 137 fields enrolled in the University of Arkansas, Rice Research Verification Program (RRVP) from 2005 to 2011.
This report summarizes the U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service's Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Program (FANRP) activities and accomplishments in fiscal 2010, including newly awarded projects and recent publications. FANRP supports intramural and extramural research on a wide range of policy-relevant food assistance and nutrition topics. The three perennial program themes are: (1) Program Outcomes and Economic Well-Being of Participants; (2) Program Access and Economic Determinants of Participation; and (3) Program Dynamics and Efficiency.
