This interactive presentation describes LexNet, a graphical environment for graph-based NLP developed at the University of Michigan. LexNet includes LexRank (for text summarization), biased LexRank (for passage retrieval), and TUMBL (for binary classiﬁcation). All tools in the collection are based on random walks on lexical graphs, that is graphs where different NLP objects (e.g., sentences or phrases) are represented as nodes linked by edges proportional to the lexical similarity between the two nodes.
This book is intended for software developers, testers, and managers who work with .NET
technology. This book assumes you have a basic familiarity with .NET programming but does
not make any particular assumptions about your skill level. The examples in this book have
been successfully used in seminars where the audience background has ranged from beginning
application programmers to advanced systems programmers. The content in this book
has also been used in teaching environments where it has proven highly effective as a platform
for students who are learning intermediate level .
It includses a n u m b e r of specialized tools t h a t consent an easy, graphics-based interaction with the parser. It is shown in particular how a combination of the characteristics of the parser (based on the lexicon a n d on dynamic unification) and of the e n v i r o n m e n t allow a nonspecialized user to explore heuristics t h a t m a y alter the basica control of the system. In this way, for instance, a p s y c h o l i n g...
AutoCAD is more than just another application pro-
gram, it’s a complete environment for drafting and
design. So if you’re new to AutoCAD, you need to know
several things to get off to a good start — especially how
to use the command line area and set up your drawing
properly. These key techniques are described in this part
of the book.
Why should you learn about Linux? It’s a fast-growing operating system,
and it is inexpensive and flexible. Linux is also a major player in the
small and mid-sized server field, and it’s an increasingly viable platform for
workstation and desktop use, as well. By understanding Linux, you’ll
increase your standing in the job market. Even if you already know Windows
or MacOS and your employer uses these systems exclusively, understanding
Linux will give you an edge when you are looking for a new job or if you are
looking for promotion.
This is a book about Linux, a free, open source operating system that's changing the world of
computing. In this book, we show how you can completely change the way you work with
computers by exploring a powerful and free operating system. Linux goes against
the traditional computing mainstream, being developed by a loosely organized group of
thousands of volunteers across the Internet.
New to UNIX and looking for a book to help you get acquainted with UNIX?
Not so new to UNIX but looking to expand your knowledge?
A programmer looking for a guide to UNIX as a reference and a teaching guide for
Perl, awk, and the shells?
A beginning system administrator looking to learn how to install UNIX or how to
connect your UNIX to a network?
A system administrator looking for a reference guide or maybe just wanting to expand
A curious soul wanting to know everything about UNIX?
If any of these is true, you are holding the right book.
As a reader, you are the most important critic and commentator of our books. We value your
opinion and want to know what we’re doing right, what we could do better, what areas you’d
like to see us publish in, and any other words of wisdom you’re willing to pass our way. You
can help us make strong books that meet your needs and give you the computer guidance you
The Linux market started from a few distributions available only from FTP servers, to full feature
commercial distributions available in stores and online including a printed manual and phone support.
Here are the main choices you have when looking for a Linux distribution:
· You can download any Linux distribution from its FTP server. To take a few examples,
RedHat can be downloaded from ftp://ftp.redhat.com, Slackware from ftp://ftp.cdrom.com and
Debian from ftp://ftp.debian.org. That method is free, but requires you to have a fast Internet
A Mathematical Introduction with OpenGL
This book is an introduction to 3-D computer graphics with particular emphasis on fundamentals and the mathematics underlying computer graphics. It includes descriptions of how to use the cross-platform OpenGL programming environment. It also includes source code for a ray tracing software package. (Accompanying software is available freely from the book’s Web site.
MATLAB (Matrix Laboratory) is a matrix-oriented tool for mathematical
programming, applied for numerical computation and simulation purposes. Together
with its dynamic simulation toolbox Simulink, as a graphical environment for the
simulation of dynamic systems, it has become a very powerful tool suitable for a large
number of applications in many areas of research and development.
This book is a gentle introduction to Linux, and as such, it is not intended as a
comprehensive guide. On the contrary, great effort has gone into this book to
keep it from becoming yet another comprehensive reference guide. I’ve been
selective about covering the topics you are most likely to use early in your
Linux hacking career.
One of the interesting things about Linux, and UNIX in general, is that
learning new ways and tools is almost an endless task. There are many
tools—too many to cover even in several “comprehensive” volumes.
That’s where The Creative Training Idea Book can help. By providing a comprehensive
resource of research on learning, creative tips, techniques, and sources for obtaining
innovative and inexpensive items to add pizzazz to any training program, I hope to
spark your imagination. I also intend to provide you with a valuable tool for future reference
in your efforts to create the best possible learning environment and experience
for your audiences
Signal Processing Toolbox Central Features
The Signal Processing Toolbox functions are algorithms, expressed mostly in M-files, that implement a variety of signal processing tasks. These toolbox functions are a specialized extension of the MATLAB computational and graphical environment.
Filtering and FFTs
Two of the most important functions for signal processing are not in the Signal Processing Toolbox at all, but are built-in MATLAB functions: • filter applies a digital filter to a data sequence. • fft calculates the discrete Fourier transform of a sequence.
We would like to thank all our colleagues and friends at Ashridge for their
support while writing this book. The following people who have all
actively contributed to the content of our book deserve a special mention:
Eddie Blass, Judy Curd, Karen Moyle, Angelita Orbea, Nigel Melville,

MIDAS/Civil is the ultimate Integrated Civil Engineering Solution for designing
bridges and general civil structures. It retains construction stage analysis
capabilities for Prestressed/Post-tensioned concrete, Suspension, Cable Stayed,
Specialty and Conventional bridges and Heat of hydration.MIDAS/Civil, developed in the object-oriented programming language Visual

environment for technical computations.
SPSS Statistics provides a powerful statistical-analysis and data-management system in a
graphical environment, using descriptive menus and simple dialog boxes to do most of the work
for you. Most tasks can be accomplished simply by pointing and clicking the mouse.
In addition to the simple point-and-click interface for statistical analysis, SPSS Statistics provides:
Data Editor. The Data Editor is a versatile spreadsheet-like system for defining, entering, editing,
and displaying data.
The teaching of technological output requires every student to get value
from his or her experiences within the laboratory environment. The coursework
and laboratory work that challenges a student should simulate real conditions.
Course problems should present both conceptual and technical challenges to
students. As a digital design professor, I feel that all “digital teachers” have a
great responsibility to students. We must transfer knowledge and skills at the
highest levels. We must be thorough in our approaches and precise in our
