Download E-books The Little Schemer - 4th Edition PDF

By Daniel P. Friedman, Matthias Felleisen, Duane Bibby

The thought that "thinking approximately computing is without doubt one of the most fun issues the human brain can do" units either The Little Schemer (formerly often called The Little LISPer) and its new significant other quantity, The pro Schemer, except different books on LISP. The authors' enthusiasm for his or her topic is compelling as they current summary options in a funny and easy-to-grasp type. jointly, those books will open new doorways of idea to someone who desires to discover what computing is de facto approximately. The Little Schemer introduces computing as an extension of mathematics and algebra; issues that everybody reviews in grade college and highschool. It introduces courses as recursive features and in brief discusses the bounds of what pcs can do. The authors use the programming language Scheme, and engaging meals to demonstrate those summary rules. The pro Schemer informs the reader approximately extra dimensions of computing: features as values, swap of country, and extraordinary situations. The Little LISPer has been a favored creation to LISP for a few years. It had seemed in French and jap. The Little Schemer and The professional Schemer are valuable successors and may turn out both renowned as textbooks for Scheme classes in addition to significant other texts for any entire introductory path in computing device technology.

Download E-books Integration of the Semantic Web and Model-Driven Software PDF

By Fernando Silva Parreiras

The following firm computing period will depend upon the synergy among either applied sciences: semantic net and model-driven software program improvement (MDSD). The semantic net organizes approach wisdom in conceptual domain names in keeping with its that means. It addresses a number of company computing wishes through opting for, abstracting and rationalizing commonalities, and checking for inconsistencies throughout approach requirements. at the different facet, model-driven software program improvement is final the distance between enterprise necessities, designs and executables through the use of domain-specific languages with custom-built syntax and semantics. It specializes in utilizing modeling languages as programming languages.

Among many components of software, we spotlight the world of configuration administration. reflect on the instance of a telecommunication corporation, the place dealing with the a number of configurations of community units (routers, hubs, modems, etc.) is important. company structures determine and record the useful and actual features of community units, and regulate alterations to these features. utilizing the mixing of semantic internet and model-driven software program improvement permits for

(1) explicitly specifying configurations of community units with tailored languages,

(2) for checking the consistency of those specifications

(3) for outlining a vocabulary to percentage equipment standards throughout firm platforms. by means of handling configurations with constant and specific ideas, we lessen expense and probability, and improve agility based on new specifications within the telecommunication area.

This publication examines the synergy among semantic internet and model-driven software program improvement. It brings jointly advances from disciplines like ontologies, description logics, domain-specific modeling, version transformation and ontology engineering to take company computing to the subsequent level.
