If you're looking to take full advantage of multi-core processors with concurrent programming, this practical book provides the knowledge and hands-on experience you need. The Art of Concurrency is one of the few resources to focus on implementing algorithms in the shared-memory model of multi-core processors, rather than just theoretical models or distributed-memory architectures.
he Art of Debugging illustrates the use three of the most popular debugging tools on Linux/Unix platforms: GDB, DDD, and Eclipse. The text-command based GDB (the GNU Project Debugger) is included with most distributions. DDD is a popular GUI front end for GDB, while Eclipse provides a complete integrated development environment.
This paper addresses the automatic classiﬁcation of semantic relations in noun phrases based on cross-linguistic evidence from a set of ﬁve Romance languages. A set of novel semantic and contextual English– Romance NP features is derived based on empirical observations on the distribution of the syntax and meaning of noun phrases on two corpora of different genre (Europarl and CLUVI). The features were employed in a Support Vector Machines algorithm which achieved an accuracy of 77.9% (Europarl) and 74.
This book demonstrates service-oriented architecture (SOA) as a concrete discipline rather than a hopeful collection of cloud charts. Built upon the author's firsthand experience rolling out a SOA at a major corporation, SOA in Practice explains how SOA can simplify the creation and maintenance of large-scale applications. Whether your project involves a large set of Web Services-based components, or connects legacy applications to modern business processes, this book clarifies how -- and whether -- SOA fits your needs....

Advances in the capabilities of technologies applicable to
distributed networking, telecommunications, multi-user
computer applications, and interactive virtual reality are
creating opportunities for users in the same or separate locations
to engage in interdependent, cooperative activities
using a common computer-based environment.
The original book, income and wealth, published by Iwanami Shoten Japanese in 1991. Widely welcomed as a new classical distribution theory, it won the prestigious award Shimbun Nikkei Economic Book the same year. Tsuneo Ishikawa started working on an English translation of his book soon after publication, but he became ill and at the time of his death in 1998, leaving half of it is incomplete. He died soon make friends, colleagues, and students together to Tsuneo Ishikawa Fund to commemorate the life and his work, and the end of 2000, 500 people have contributed to the Fund. One of...
This handbook is a continuation of our efforts to gather state-of-the-art research on
power systems topics in Operations Research. Specifically, this handbook focuses
on aspects of power system networks optimization and is, as such, a specialization
of the broader “Handbook of Power Systems I & II,” published by Springer in 2010.
For decades, power systems have been playing an important role in humanity.
Industrialization has made energy consumption an inevitable part of daily life.
The sample from a population applet lets the user select
samples of various sizes from a wide range of population
shapes including uniform, bell-shaped, skewed, and
binary populations (including a range of values for the
population proportion, p ). In addition, one can alter
any of the default populations to create a custom distribution
by dragging the mouse over the population
or by going to Custom binary and typing in the desired
population proportion. Small samples are drawn in an
animated fashion to help students understand the basic
idea of sampling.
Inside The Minds
You want to make sure that if the reporter has time to read only your first paragraph, he’ll get your news. There are many ways to distribute press releases. If you do it in-house (the most cost-effective, yet time-consuming method), make sure you send them the way your editors and analysts most prefer – mail, fax, e-mail, or courier. If you decide to use a newswire distribution service, research your options, and find the service that best reaches your intended markets for the lowest price.

Amazonis arguably one of the most successful online firms. As of this writing, its market value is over $79 billion, 40 percent higher than the combined value of two large and successful offline retailers, Target and Kohl’s, who have 2800 stores between them.
Jeff Bezos conceived of Amazon as a business model with many potential advantages relative to a physical operation. It held out the potential of lower inventory and distribution costs and reduced overhead.
Our research aims at building computational models of word meaning that are perceptually grounded. Using computer vision techniques, we build visual and multimodal distributional models and compare them to standard textual models. Our results show that, while visual models with state-of-the-art computer vision techniques perform worse than textual models in general tasks (accounting for semantic relatedness), they are as good or better models of the meaning of words with visual correlates such as color terms, even in a nontrivial task that involves nonliteral uses of such words. ...
Synchronization is the economic relations of mutual interaction of man and society are directly related to the production, exchange, distribution, consumer product goods and services, to satisfy increasing demand of people in a society with limited resources.Overall economic factors of production, the conditions of human life, the relationships in the process of production and social reproduction. Speaking ultimately the economy comes to the issue of ownership and interests.
In Chapter 1 we present in detail a framework for fully automated brain tissue
classification. The framework consists of a sequence of fully automated state
of the art image registration (both rigid and nonrigid) and image segmentation
algorithms. Models of the spatial distribution of brain tissues are combined with
models of expected tissue intensities, including correction of MR bias fields and
estimation of partial voluming. We also demonstrate how this framework can
be applied in the presence of lesions....
Intelligent Agent Technology is concerned with the development of autonomous
computational or physical entities capable of perceiving, reasoning, adapting,
learning, cooperating, and delegating in a dynamic environment. It is one of the
most promising areas of research and development in information technology,
computer science, and engineering today.
This book is an attempt to capture the essence of the current state of the art in
intelligent agent technology and to identify the new challenges and opportunities
that it is or will be facing....
This paper examines how wine is sold to customers in restaurants and specifically
examines the interaction between the wine consumer and the marketer of wine in multi-
unit, casual dining restaurants. According to Ben Salisbury, Vice President, Global

upselling is “out”, and service is “in”. Increased check averages should be the natural
result of meeting guests’ needs. Servers do not like to “sell” and guests do not like to be
Learn the theory behind cross-platform development, and put the theory into practice with code using the invaluable information presented in this book. With in-depth coverage of development and distribution techniques for iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and Android, you’ll learn the native approach to working with each of these platforms. With detailed coverage of emerging frameworks like PhoneGap and Rhomobile, you’ll learn the art of creating applications that will run across all devices.
