Blut, Treibstoff, Lebensprinzip - in seinem furiosen Buch erzählt Bestsellerautor James Gleick, wie die details zum Kernstück unserer heutigen Zivilisation wurde. Beginnend bei den Wörtern, den "sprechenden" Trommeln in Afrika, über das Morsealphabet und bis hin zur Internetrevolution beleuchtet er, wie die Übermittlung von Informationen die Gesellschaften prägten und veränderten. Gleick erläutert die Theorien, die sich mit dem Codieren und Decodieren, der Übermittlung von Inhalten und dem Verbreiten der Myriaden von Botschaften beschäftigen. Er stellt die bekannten und unbekannten Pioniere der Informationsgesellschaft vor: Claude Shannon, Norbert Wiener, Ada Byron, Alan Turing und andere. Er bietet dem Leser neue Einblicke in die Mechanismen des Informationsaustausches. So lernt dieser etwa die sich selbst replizierende Meme kennen, die "DNA" der Informationen. Sein Buch ermöglicht ein neues Verständnis von Musik, Quantenmechanik - und eine gänzlich neue Sicht auf die faszinierende Welt der Informationen.

Read e-book online Matrix Perturbation Theory PDF

This publication is a accomplished survey of matrix perturbation thought, a subject of curiosity to numerical analysts, statisticians, actual scientists, and engineers. specifically, the authors disguise perturbation concept of linear structures and least sq. difficulties, the eignevalue challenge, and the generalized eignevalue challenge as wellas a whole therapy of vector and matrix norms, together with the idea of unitary invariant norms.

Computer Intrusion Detection and Network Monitoring: A by David J. Marchette PDF

Within the fall of 1999, i used to be requested to educate a direction on computing device intrusion detection for the dept of Mathematical Sciences of The Johns Hopkins college. That path used to be the genesis of this e-book. I have been operating within the box for a number of years on the Naval floor war heart, in Dahlgren, Virginia, lower than the auspices of the SHADOW software, with a few investment by means of the workplace of Naval learn.

Allen B. Tucker's Computer Science Handbook, Second Edition PDF

When you consider how a long way and quickly machine technology has stepped forward in recent times, it isn't difficult to finish seven-year outdated guide could fall a bit wanting the type of reference modern desktop scientists, software program engineers, and IT pros desire. With a broadened scope, extra emphasis on utilized computing, and greater than 70 chapters both new or considerably revised, the pc technological know-how guide, moment variation is strictly the type of reference you wish.

New PDF release: Treatise on Analysis, Vol. III

This quantity, the 8th out of 9, keeps the interpretation of "Treatise on research" through the French writer and mathematician, Jean Dieudonne. the writer exhibits how, for a voluntary constrained classification of linear partial differential equations, using Lax/Maslov operators and pseudodifferential operators, mixed with the spectral concept of operators in Hilbert areas, results in recommendations which are even more particular than ideas arrived at via "a priori" inequalities, that are dead functions.

7. 8. ’ I n the problem to be considered, it is assumed that the values carried by the arcs are proportional to actual distances on a map. When a graph is drawn on a map with a certain scale (provided the links are straight segments connecting the points specified on the map, and the links are given values proportional to the lengths of the segments connecting the points with one another), a metric graph or nontopological graph is produced, of which Fig. 10 is an example. A graph of this nature is not, in the strict sense, a graph as defined by Konig or Berge, on account of the supplementary property required.
