Foundations of Robotics: Analysis and Control
Foundations of Robotics presents the fundamental concepts and methodologies for the analysis, design, and control of robot manipulators. It explains the physical meaning of the concepts and equations used, and it provides, in an intuitively clear way, the necessary background in kinetics, linear algebra, and control theory....
Thinking in Postscript This book is intended to provide a practical, intriguing, and fresh look at
the PostScript programming language. PostScript is a mysterious
language, powerful and cryptic. It is expressive and complicated and yet
surprisingly simple. In order to master a programming language, you have
to learn to think like the compiler or...
Innumeracy: Mathematical Illiteracy and Its Consequences (Vintage)
Dozens of examples in innumeracy show us how it affects not only personal economics and travel plans, but explains mischosen mates, inappropriate drug-testing, and the allure of psuedo-science.
Innumeracy, an inability to deal comfortably with the fundamental notions of number and
chance, plagues far too many otherwise...
What is Mathematical Logic? This lively introduction to mathematical logic, easily accessible to non-mathematicians, offers an historical survey, coverage of predicate calculus, model theory, Godel’s theorems, computability and recursivefunctions, consistency and independence in axiomatic set theory, and much more. Suggestions for Further Reading. Diagrams.
Algorithms and Complexity. Handbook of Theoretical Computer Science, Vol. A
Modern developments in computer and software systems have raised many challeng
ing issues concerning the design and efficiency of complex programming applica
tions. There is an increasing need for "advanced theory", to understand and exploit
basic concepts and mechanisms in computing and information processing. The... Functional Programming: Practice and Theory
There is more to functional programming than simply programming in a
functional language. As explained in Section 1.1,1 view functional pro
gramming as a new programming paradigm, comparable in importance to
structured programming. As such, it has value as a discipline of thought
even in the absence of functional programming...
Management of Hazardous Substances in the Environment Selected papers presented at Envirotech Vienna 1989, First International ISEP Congress, Vienna, Austria, on 20-22 February 1989.
There has been growing international concern in recent years about the urgent environmental problems associated with hazardous substances and their management. Discussion has focussed on three main areas:
Category Theory for Computing Science
This book is a textbook in basic category theory, written specifically to be read by researchers and students in computing science. We expound the constructions we feel are basic to category theory in the context of examples and applications to computing science. Some categorical ideas and constructions are already used heavily in computing...
Structural Elements Design Manual
Gives clear explanations of the logical design sequence for structural elements. The Structural Engineer says: `The book explains, in simple terms, and with many examples, Code of Practice methods for sizing structural sections in timber, concrete,
masonry and steel. It is the combination into one book of section sizing methods in...
