With rapid advancements in computing power, computer modeling and simulations
have become an important complement to experimentations in many areas of research
as well as industrial applications. The Discrete Event Simulation (DES) method has
received widespread attention and acceptance by both researchers and practitioners in
recent years. The range of application of DES spans across many different disciplines
and research fields.
You should be familiar with your computer and its operating system.
For example, you should know the commands for deleting and
copying files and understand the concepts of search paths,
subdirectories, and path names. Refer to your Microsoft Windows 95
or NT and DOS product documentation for more information.
You should also understand the fundamentals of Microsoft
Windows, such as the elements of an application window. You
should also be familiar with such programs as the Explorer, Taskbar
or Task Manager, and Registry....

Welcome to the XML.NET Developer’s Guide! We have taken great care to create a
quality reference book for XML programmers who want to enhance their coding
skills to include applications for the .NET platform.This book assumes that you do
have previous exposure to XML and are familiar with VB.NET, C#, and ASP.NET.
In other words, this book is not for a novice or beginner.
Since its inception in February of 1998, XML has been moving forward through
the continued efforts of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
There is a revolution happening in the technology industry. Touchscreen interfaces,
combined with low-cost and ubiquitous smartphones, have created a perfect storm
for disruptive innovation. Android is at the forefront of this change, bringing a free
and open-source platform on which developers can create the next generation of
applications. With free development tools and an open market, anyone can develop
applications that reach a worldwide market. But why choose to develop for Android?
The Developer’s Guide describes intermediate and advanced development topics, such
as building database applications, writing custom components, and creating Internet
Web server applications using Kylix, Delphi for the Linux operating system. The
Developer’s Guide assumes you are familiar with using Linux and understand
fundamental programming techniques. For an introduction to Kylix programming
and the integrated development environment (IDE), see the online Help and the
Quick Start manual.
The last two decades have witnessed an extensive growth in foreign direct investment
(FDI) flows to developing countries. This has been accompanied by an increase in
competition amongst the developing countries to attract FDI, resulting in a rise in
investment incentives offered by the host governments and removal of restrictions on
operations of foreign firms in their countries. This has also led to an ever-increasing
number of bilateral investment treaties (BITs) and regional agreements on...
Welcome to the exciting world of HTML5! If you’re an ASP.NET developer looking to turbocharge your
ASP.NET applications with HTML5 features, you’ve picked the right book. Compared to its successors,
HTML5 offers a much richer and complex set of features. HTML5 isn’t just about additional markup tags—
it’s about APIs that you can program using client-side script.
On one hand, HTML5 simplifies tasks that weren’t possible previously; but at the same time, it calls for
a detailed understanding of HTML5 features and ways to integrate those features into your applications.
Android development is hot, and many programmers are interested in joining the fun. However, because this technology is based on Java, you should first obtain a solid grasp of the Java language and its foundational APIs to improve your chances of succeeding as an Android app developer. After all, you will be busy learning the architecture of an Android app, the various Android-specific APIs, and Android-specific tools. If you do not already know Java fundamentals, you will probably end up with a massive headache from also having to quickly cram those fundamentals into your knowledge base. ...
In a decentralized-decisions economy under uncertainty, the financial system can be seen as
the complex of institutions, infrastructure, and instruments that the society adopts to minimize the
costs of transacting promises under agents’ incomplete trust and limited information. Building on a
microeconomic, general equilibrium model that portrays such fundamental function of finance, this
study analytically shows that, in line with recent empirical evidence, the development of financial
infrastructure stimulates larger and more efficient capital industrial accumulation.
Research purpose: The thesis clarifies fundamental theoretical matters and the real situation of the education and training to the development of hight-quality human resources; recommends a number of directions and solutions to bring into full play the role of education and training in the development of hight-quality human resources in Vietnam at present.
Pro Access 2010 Development is a fundamental resource for developing business applications that take advantage of the features of Access 2010 and the many sources of data available to your business. In this book, you'll learn how to build database applications, create Web-based databases, develop macros and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) tools for Access applications, integrate Access with SharePoint and other business systems, and much more.
Analysis and abatement of air pollution involve a variety of technical disciplines. Formation
of the most prevalent pollutants occurs during the combustion process, a tightly
coupled system involving fluid flow, mass and energy transport, and chemical kinetics.
Its complexity is exemplified by the fact that, in many respects, the simplest hydrocarbon
combustion, the methane-oxygen flame, has been quantitatively modeled only within
the last several years.
Professional Multicore Programming: Design and Implementation for C++ Developers presents the basics of multicore programming in a simple, easy–to–understand manner so that you can easily apply the concepts to your everyday projects. Learn the fundamentals of programming for multiprocessor and multithreaded architecture, progress to multi–core programming and eventually become comfortable with programming techniques that otherwise can be difficult to understand.
SharePoint 2010 is a significant leap forward from the 2007 release, and 'you will find that there are a ton of features built into the platform for you to leverage in your solution development. Because SharePoint is a broad platform that covers a lot, this book also covers quite a bit of ground. As a Wrox Beginning book, the goal of Beginning SharePoint 2010 Development is to get you started with many of the fundamentals so that you can continue on to advanced programming beyond this book.
In this era of knowledge economy, digital manufacturing as a new manufacturing
technology and manufacturing mode has become a strong manufacturing power,
