Expert C ProgrammingBrowsing in a bookstore recently, I was discouraged to see the dryness of so many C and C++ texts. Few authors conveyed the idea that anyone might enjoy programming. All the wonderment was squeezed out by long boring passages of prose. Useful perhaps, if you can stay awake long enough to read it. But programming isn't like that!
Programming is...   Knots and SurfacesThe fascination exerted by interlaced patterns and knotted forms is evident in their use in decorative and symbolic art across the centuries. Knotwork is a distinguishing feature of Celtic art, and the intricate beauty of decorated stonework and illuminated manuscripts such as the Lindisfarne Gospels, the Book of Durrow, and the Book of Kells...   A Combinatorial Introduction to TopologyTopology is remarkable for its contributions to the popular culture of mathematics. Euler's formula for polyhedra, the four color theorem, the Mobius strip, the Klein bottle, and the general notion of a rubber sheet geometry are all part of the folklore of current mathematics. The student in a first course in topology, however, must often wonder... 


Foundations of Dependable Computing: Models and Frameworks for Dependable SystemsFoundations of Dependable Computing: Models and Frameworks for Dependable Systems presents two comprehensive frameworks for reasoning about system dependability, thereby establishing a context for understanding the roles played by specific approaches presented in this book's two companion volumes. It then explores the range of models and...   E: The Story of a NumberMaor attempts to give the irrational number e its rightful standing alongside pi as a fundamental constant in science and nature; he succeeds very well.... Maor writes so that both mathematical newcomers and longtime professionals alike can thoroughly enjoy his book, learn something new, and witness the ubiquity of mathematical ideas in...   Foundations of Dependable Computing: System ImplementationFoundations of Dependable Computing: System Implementation, explores the system infrastructure needed to support the various paradigms of Paradigms for Dependable Applications. Approaches to implementing support mechanisms and to incorporating additional appropriate levels of fault detection and fault tolerance at the processor, network, and...
