Over the past two decades, there has been a huge amount of innovation in both the principles and practice of operating systems Over the same period, the core ideas in a modern operating system – protection, concurrency, virtualization, resource allocation, and reliable storage – have become widely applied throughout computer science. Whether you get a job at Facebook, Google, Microsoft, or any other leading-edge technology company, it is impossible to build resilient, secure, and flexible computer systems without the ability to apply operating systems concepts in a variety of settings. This book examines the both the principles and practice of modern operating systems, taking important, high-level concepts all the way down to the level of working code. Because operating systems concepts are among the most difficult in computer science, this top to bottom approach is the only way to really understand and master this important material.

Publisher O’Reilly Media, Inc.

The Art of Agile Development contains practical guidance for anyone considering or applying agile development for building valuable software. Plenty of books describe what agile development is or why it helps software projects succeed, but very few combine information for developers, managers, testers, and customers into a single package that they can apply directly.

This book provides no-nonsense advice on agile planning, development, delivery, and management taken from the authors’ many years of experience with Extreme Programming (XP). You get a gestalt view of the agile development process, including comprehensive guidance for non-technical readers and hands-on technical practices for developers and testers.

The Art of Agile Development gives you clear answers to questions such as:

  • How can we adopt agile development?
  • Do we really need to pair program?
  • What metrics should we report?
  • What if I can’t get my customer to participate?
  • How much documentation should we write?
  • When do we design and architect?
  • As a non-developer, how should I work with my agile team?
  • Where is my product roadmap?
  • How does QA fit in?

The book teaches you how to adopt XP practices, describes each practice in detail, then discusses principles that will allow you to modify XP and create your own agile method. In particular, this book tackles the difficult aspects of agile development: the need for cooperation and trust among team members.

Whether you’re currently part of an agile team, working with an agile team, or interested in agile development, this book provides the practical tips you need to start practicing agile development. As your experience grows, the book will grow with you, providing exercises and information that will teach you first to understand the rules of agile development, break them, and ultimately abandon rules altogether as you master the art of agile development.

“Jim Shore and Shane Warden expertly explain the practices and benefits of Extreme Programming. They offer advice from their real-world experiences in leading teams. They answer questions about the practices and show contraindications – ways that a practice may be mis-applied. They offer alternatives you can try if there are impediments to applying a practice, such as the lack of an on-site customer.

For almost three decades, Roger Pressman’s Software Engineering: A Practitioner’s Approach has been the world’s leading textbook in software engineering. The new edition represents a major restructuring and update of previous editions, solidifying the book’s position as the most comprehensive guide to this important subject. The chapter structure will return to a more linear presentation of software engineering topics with a direct emphasis on the major activities that are part of a generic software process. Content will focus on widely used software engineering methods and will de-emphasize or completely eliminate discussion of secondary methods, tools and techniques. The intent is to provide a more targeted, prescriptive, and focused approach, while attempting to maintain SEPA’s reputation as a comprehensive guide to software engineering. The 39 chapters of this edition are organized into five parts – Process, Modeling, Quality Management, Managing Software Projects, and Advanced Topics. The book has been revised and restructured to improve pedagogical flow and emphasize new and important software engineering processes and practices.

McGraw-Hill’s Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student’s work.

Practical concepts in geoid modelling: with geophysical and geodynamical interpretations.

Computation of a precise gravimetric geoid model with sparse and limited data is a difficult task, which needs a special notice. This book investigates the procedure for gathering, evaluating and combining different data for the determination of an optimum gravimetric geoid model as a case study in Iran. It covers the theoretical and practical aspects of geoid modelling and its applications in geosciences and engineering. It is intended to serve as a text book for graduate students in geosciences such as geodesy, geophysics and surveying engineering. It is consists of the basic theories and materials which need for precise geoid modelling including theory of the Least-Squares Modification of Stokes”s formula (KTH approach), qualification and refinement of the gravity data,determination of the gravity and gradient components, Global Geopotential Models (GGM),Digital Elevation Models (DEM), lateral density variation, corrective surface and engineering height datum, quasi-geoid modeling, variance components analysis, geodynamical and geophysical interpretations of geoid models.

Geoid determination : theory and methods.

This book will be based on the material of the lecture noties in several International Schools for the Determination and Use of the Geoid, organized by the International Geoid Serivice of the International Association of Geodesy. It consolidates, unifies, and streamlines this material in a unique way not covereed by the few other books that exist on this subjext. More specifically, the book presents (for the first time in a single volume) the theory and methodology of the most common technique used for precise determination of the geoid, including the computation of the marine geoid from satellite altimetry data. These are illustrated by specific examples and actual computations of local geoids. In addition, the book provides the fundamentals of estimating orthometric heights without spirit levelling, by properly combining a geoid with heights from GPS. Besides the geodectic and geophysical uses, this last application has made geoid computation methods very popular in recent years because the entire GPS and GIS user communities are interested in estimating geoid undulations in order to convert GPS heights to physically meaningful orthometric heights (elevations above mean sea level). The overall purpose of the book is, therefore, to provide the user community (academics, graduate students, geophysicists, engineers, oceanographers, GIS and GPS users, researchers) with a self-contained textbook, which will supply them with the complete roadmap of estimating geoid undulations, from the theoretical definitions and formulas to the available numerical methods and their implementation and the test in practice.

Publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Geodetic control surveys.

The first edition of this book was in lithoprint form in 1940 as a textbook for student instruction. Engineers are frequently called upon to make precise control surveys and state plane coordinate systems. Since the conception of the plane coordinate systems of state control, several states have passed legislation to legalized them. To put these systems in operation, there must be control, and it is based upon geodetic methods. An attempt has been made in this book to familiarize the engineer with the survey methods and computations necessary in such work. The importance of accurate measurements in connection with the laying out of large structure cannot be overemphasized. Geodetic methods should be applied to such laying outs.

The fundamental theories are developed in the first part of the book, and the application of these theories is given in subsequent chapters.

Some engineers are confused as to use of astronomic coordinates, geodetic coordinates, and plane coordinates. Each system is explained with the necessary computations required to change from one system to another. There are sample computations to assist in the explanation of all important procedures.

Control surveys are used extensively in photographic surveying. Triangulation and traverses form the network upon which this control is based. This book may therefore be used as a companion book for the author’s Photogrammetry.

The author is indebted to the publications of the Coast and Geodetic Survey and Technical Procedure for City Surveys, a publication of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Design and construction of berm breakwaters

Publisher World Scientific

Do you want to harness the power of science, technology, and innovation to change the world? Do you want to channel your passion and education to pursue a life-long career improving the human condition?

Modern design of berm breakwaters began about thirty years ago. However, to date, there has been a lack of a well-established, formal design methodology on berm breakwaters. The authors Dr Jentsje van der Meer and Sigurdur Sigurdarson combine over 40 years of collective experience working with breakwaters to put forward a design framework in Design and Construction of Berm Breakwaters; covering the science and design practices of berm breakwater structures. The original design consisted of mass armoured berms that reshaped into statically stable S-shaped slopes. The design was adopted in Iceland and eventually led to a development with more stable structures by using available rock sizes, large rock, and more rock gradings than just “small rock (core)” and “large rock (berm)”. This more stable and only partly reshaping structure is called the Icelandic-type berm breakwater.

Written for researchers and practitioners, the volume consists of chapters on geometrical designs of the berm breakwater cross-section, including berm reshaping and wave overtopping, quarry and project management, as well as blasting and sorting techniques, designs for various wave conditions and available rock classes, and case studies of already constructed berm breakwaters.

In recognition of the importance of road safety as a major health issue, the World Health Organization has declared 2011-2021 the Decade of Safety Action. Several countries in Europe, North America, and Asia have been successful in reducing fatalities and injuries due to road traffic crashes. However, many low-income countries continue to experience high rates of traffic fatalities and injuries.

Transport Planning and Traffic Safety: Making Cities, Roads, and Vehicles Safer offers a source book for road safety training courses as well as an introductory textbook for graduate-level courses on road safety taught in engineering institutes. It brings together the international experiences and lessons learned from countries which have been successful in reducing traffic crashes and their applicability in low-income countries. The content is based on lectures delivered during an international course on transportation planning and traffic safety, sponsored annually by the Transportation Research and Injury Prevention Programme (TRIPP) at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi.

The book is interdisciplinary and aimed at professionals―traffic and road engineers, vehicle designers, law enforcers, and transport planners. The authors examine trends in performance of OECD countries and highlight the public health and systems approach of traffic safety with the vulnerable road user in focus. Topics include land use (transportation planning, mobility, and safety), safety education and legislation, accident analysis, road safety research, human tolerance to injury, vehicle design, safety in construction zones, safety in urban areas, traffic calming, public transportation, safety laws and policies, and pre-hospital care of the injured.
