Hierarchical Scheduling in Parallel and Cluster Systems
ISBN: 9780306477614 / Angielski / Twarda / 251 str. Multiple processor systems are an important class of parallel systems. Over the years, several architectures have been proposed to build such systems to satisfy the requirements of high performance computing. These architectures span a wide variety of system types. At the low end of the spectrum, we can build a small, sharedmemory parallel system with tens of processors. These systems typically use a bus to interconnect the processors and memory. Such systems, for example, are becoming commonplace in highperformance graph ics workstations. These systems are called uniform memory access...

Machine Beauty: Elegance and the Heart of Technology
ISBN: 9780465043163 / Angielski / Miękka / 176 str. When something works well, you can feel it; there is a sense of rightness to it. We call that rightness beauty, and it ought to be the single most important component of design.This recognition is at the heart of David Gelernter's witty argued essay, Machine Beauty, which defines beauty as an inspired mating of simplicity and power. You can see it in a Bauhaus chair, the Hoover Dam, or an Emerson radio circa 1930. In contrast, too many contemporary technologists run out of ideas and resort to gimmicks and features; they are rarely capable of real, structural ingenuity.Nowhere is this more...

Algorithmic Information Theory
ISBN: 9780521616041 / Angielski / Miękka / 192 str. Chaitin, the inventor of algorithmic information theory, presents in this book the strongest possible version of Godel's incompleteness theorem, using an information theoretic approach based on the size of computer programs. One half of the book is concerned with studying the halting probability of a universal computer if its program is chosen by tossing a coin. The other half is concerned with encoding the halting probability as an algebraic equation in integers, a socalled exponential diophantine equation."

Feynman Lectures on Computation
ISBN: 9780738202969 / Angielski / Miękka / 324 str. When, in 198486, Richard P. Feynman gave his famous course on computation at the California Institute of Technology, he asked Tony Hey to adapt his lecture notes into a book. Although led by Feynman, the course also featured, as occasional guest speakers, some of the most brilliant men in science at that time, including Marvin Minsky, Charles Bennett, and John Hopfield. Although the lectures are now thirteen years old, most of the material is timeless and presents a "Feynmanesque" overview of many standard and some notsostandard topics in computer science such as reversible logic gates and...

Interior Point Approach to Linear, Quadratic and Convex Programming: Algorithms and Complexity
ISBN: 9780792327349 / Angielski / Twarda / 210 str. This book describes the rapidly developing field of interior point methods (IPMs). An extensive analysis is given of pathfollowing methods for linear programming, quadratic programming and convex programming. These methods, which form a subclass of interior point methods, follow the central path, which is an analytic curve defined by the problem. Relatively simple and elegant proofs for polynomiality are given. The theory is illustrated using several explicit examples. Moreover, an overview of other classes of IPMs is given. It is shown that all these methods rely on the same notion as the...
