This book is a quick-reference guide for Recovery Manager (RMAN), Oracle's utility to manage all of your Oracle database backup and recovery activities. This book is not a comprehensive backup and recovery book. It contains an overview of RMAN architecture, shows briefly how to backup and restore databases using RMAN, describes catalog setup issues, and provides quick-reference syntax diagrams of RMAN commands.
Produced by the architects that are actively working on the ARM specification, this book contains detailed information about all versions of the ARM and ThumbTM instruction sets, the memory management and cache functions, and optimized code examples. Both an architectural overview and programmer's model are presented. Coverage also includes 26-bit architectures and the System Control Coprocessor.
SQL: The Complete Reference provides an in-depth discussion of SQL
fundamentals, modern SQL products, and SQL's role in trends such as data
warehousing, "thin-client" architectures, and Internet-based e-commerce. This
book is your one-stop resource for all you need to know about SQL. It will help
Learn the key concepts and latest developments in relational
Master the industry-standard SQL language for managing database
Understand the differences among all the leading brands of DBMS
(BQ) Ebook Dictionary of architecture and building construction is illustrated with stunning drawings that provide a visual as well as a textual definition of both key concepts and subtle differences in meaning. Davies and Jokiniemi's work sets a new standard for reference books for all those interested in the buildings that surround us. To browse the book and to see how this title is an invaluable resource for both students and professionals alike.
The introductory chapters in this book (Chapters 1–4) provide an overview of SQL, SQL built-in functions,
UDFs, and major vendor implementations of RDBMS and SQL functions. These chapters are meant to
serve as an introduction to SQL function architecture and concepts for those readers who need to increase
their knowledge and sharpen their skills.
Programming technologies have improved continuously during the last decades
but, from an Information Systems perspective, some well-known problems associatedwith
the design and implementation of an Information Systems persist:Object-
Oriented Methods, Formal Specification Languages, Component-Based Software
Production,Aspect-OrientedApproaches.This is only a very short list of technologies
proposed to solve a very old and, at the same time, very well-known problem:
how to produce software of quality.
This book is for students of building design: architecture, architectural tech-nology, building, construction management, interior design and surveying. By ‘students’ I refer to those just embarking on a course of study related to building, and the professionals who deal with detail design issues on a daily basis.
When talking about cryptography, we refer to senders and receivers wishing
to exchange messages or plaintext by exchanging ciphertext. It is assumed that
an eavesdropper reading ciphertext should not be able to extract corresponding
plaintext. This characteristic is called conﬁdentiality. The process performed
by a sender to hide plaintext is called encryption, the reverse operation is called
decryption. These processes are often expressed as mathematic functions or com-
puting algorithms. The encryption and decryption algorithms together constitute
This paper describes an architecture for performing anaphora resolution in a flexible way. Systems which conform to these guidelines are wellencapsulated and portable, and can be used to compare anaphora resolution techniques for new language understanding applications. Our implementation of the architecture in a pronoun resolution testing platform demonstrates the flexibility of the approach.
This paper deals with the reference choices involved in the generation of argumentative text. Since a natual segmentation of discourse into attentional spaces is needed to carry out this task, this paper first proposes an architecture for natural language generation that combines hierarchical planning and focus-guided navigation, a work in its own right. While hierarchical planning spans out an attentional hierarchy of the discourse produced, local navigation fills details into the primitive discourse spaces.
We describe a dialogue system that works with its interlocutor to identify objects. Our contributions include a concise, modular architecture with reversible processes of understanding and generation, an information-state model of reference, and ﬂexible links between semantics and collaborative problem solving.
Pipelined Natural Language Generation (NLG) systems have grown increasingly complex as architectural modules were added to support language functionalities such as referring expressions, lexical choice, and revision. This has given rise to discussions about the relative placement of these new modules in the overall architecture. Recent work on another aspect of multi-paragraph text, discourse markers, indicates it is time to consider where a discourse marker insertion algorithm ﬁts in.

GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications, originally Groupe Spécial Mobile), is a standard set developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) to describe technologies for second generation (2G) digital cellular networks. Developed as a replacement for first generation (1G) analog cellular networks, the GSM standard originally described a digital, circuit switched network optimized for full duplex voice telephony.
