A logical approach to discrete math by David Gries( Book )

30 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text attempts to change the way logic and discrete math are taught in computer science and mathematics. While many books treat logic simply as another topic of study, this book's uniqueness is its willingness to take it one step further. In the book, logic is treated as a basic tool, to be applied in essentially every other area. "This is a rather extraordinary book, and deserves to be read by everyone involved in computer science and - perhaps more importantly - software engineering. I recommend it highly. The book will be of value not only to beginning students, but also to hardened programmers with many years of experience - in Fortran, Cobol, C, C++, or whatever. If the book is taken seriously, the rigor that it unfolds and the clarity of its concepts could have a significant impact on the way in which software is conceived and developed."--Peter G. Neumann

Programming methodology : a collection of articles by members of IFIP WG2.3 by David Gries( Book )

17 editions published between 1978 and 2003 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The IFIP working group 2.3 (Programming Methodology) is made up of internationally prominent computing academics and industrialists, and broadly its purpose is to invent, discuss and assess new and emerging techniques for improving the quality of software and systems. The group's membership has been influential in topics such as program correctness, object orientation, operating systems and distributed computing; indeed many thriving areas of research nowadays are based on ideas which were once scrutinized by the 2.3 working committee. This is a volume of chapters written by the membership which will form a reference and guide to the front line of research activity in programming methodology. The range of subjects reflects the current interests of the members, and will offer insightful and controversial opinions on modern programming methods and practice. The material is arranged in thematic sections, each one introduced by a problem which epitomizes the spirit of that topic. The exemplary problem will encourage vigorous discussion and will form the basis for an introduction/tutorial for its section

Multimedia introduction to programming using Java by David Gries( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With its comprehensive appendices and bibliography, systemic approach, and helpful CD-ROM, this work provides the key tools for successful object-oriented programming. It is ideal for use at the undergraduate and graduate beginning level, whether in the classroom or for distance learning; furthermore, the text will also be a valuable self-study resource or reference volume in any programmer's library."--Jacket

Advances in cryptology--EUROCRYPT '88 : Workshop on the Theory and Application of Cryptographic Techniques, Davos, Switzerland, May 25-27, 1988: proceedings by EUROCRYPT( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the proceedings of the EUROCRYPT '88 conference, a workshop on theory and applications of cryptographic techniques held at Davos, Switzerland, May 25-27, 1988. The International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) organizes two international conferences every year, one in Europe and one in the United States. EUROCRYPT '88 was the sixth European conference. The number of contributions and of participants at the meetinng has increased substantially, which shows the high interest in cryptography and in system security in general. The interest has also further moved towards authentication, signatures and other protocols. This is to understand in view of the urgent needs for such protocols, in particular in connection with open information systems, and in view of the exciting problems in this area. The equally fascinating classical field of secrecy, i.e. the theory, design and analysis of stream or block ciphers and of public key cryptosystems, was however also well represented and several significant results were communicated. These proceedings contain all contributions accepted for presentation

Beauty is our business : a birthday salute to Edsger W. Dijkstra by W. H. J Feijen( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than anything else, this book is a tribute to Edsger W. Dijkstra, on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday, by just a few of those fortunate enough to be influenced by him and his work and to be called his friend or relation, his master, colleague, or pupil. This book contains fifty-four technical contributions in different areas of endeavor, although many of them deal with an area of particular concern to Dijkstra: programming. Each contribution is relatively short and could be digested in one sitting. Together, they form a nice cross section of the discipline of programming at the beginning of the nineties. While many know of Dijkstra's technical contributions, they may not be aware of his ultimate goal, the mastery of complexity in mathematics and computing science. He has forcefully argued that beauty and elegance are essential to this mastery. The title of this book, chosen to reflect his ultimate goal, comes from a sentence in an article of his on some beautiful arguments using mathematical induction: " ... when we recognize the battle against chaos, mess, and unmastered complexity as one of computing sci- ence's major callings, we must admit that 'Beauty Is Our Business'."
