Elements of the theory of computation by Harry R Lewis( Book )

45 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lewis and Papadimitriou present this long awaited Second Edition of their best-selling theory of computation. The authors are well-known for their clear presentation that makes the material accessible to a broad audience and requires no special previous mathematical experience. In this new edition, the authors incorporate a somewhat more informal, friendly writing style to present both classical and contemporary theories of computation. Algorithms, complexity analysis, and algorithmic ideas are introduced informally in Chapter 1, and are pursued throughout the book. Each section is followed by problems
Excellence without a soul : how a great university forgot education by Harry R Lewis( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses how Harvard University, by focusing on competition for professors and financial support and a consumer model of education, has failed to live up to its primary mission of educating students to become responsible members of society
Blown to bits : your life, liberty, and happiness after the digital explosion by Harold Abelson( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every day, billions of photographs, news stories, songs, X-rays, TV shows, phone calls, and emails are being scattered around the world as sequences of zeroes and ones: bits. We can't escape this explosion of digital information and few of us want to; the benefits are too seductive. The technology has enabled unprecedented innovation, collaboration, entertainment, and democratic participation. But the same engineering marvels are shattering centuries old assumptions about privacy, identity, free expression, and personal control as more and more details of our lives are captured as digital data. Do you control who sees all that personal information about you? Can email be truly confidential, when nothing seems to be private? Shouldn't the Internet be censored the way radio and TV are? Is it really a federal crime to download music? When you use Google or Yahoo! to search for something, how do they decide which sites to show you? Do you still have free speech in the digital world? Do you have a voice in shaping government or corporate policies about any of this? This book offers provocative answers to these questions and tells intriguing real life stories; it is a wake-up call to the human consequences of the digital explosion
What is college for? : the public purpose of higher education by Ellen Condliffe Lagemann( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a time when higher education attendance has never felt more mandatory for career success and economic growth, the distinguished contributors to this provocative collection ask readers to consider the civic mission of higher education as equally vital to the nation's well-being. Should higher education serve a greater public interest? In what ways should colleges and universities be asked to participate in public controversies? What should we expect institutions of higher education to contribute to the development of honesty and ethical judgment in the civic sphere? What should colleges do to foster greater intellectual curiosity and aesthetic appreciation in their students and communities, and why is this important for all Americans? --Book Description

Excellence without a soul : does liberal education have a future? by Harry R Lewis( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's great research universities are the envy of the world--and none more so than Harvard. Never before has the competition for excellence been fiercer. But while striving to be unsurpassed in the quality of its faculty and students, Universities have forgotten that the fundamental purpose of undergraduate education is to turn young people into adults who will take responsibility for society. In Excellence Without a Soul, Harry Lewis, a Harvard professor for more than thirty years and Dean of Harvard College for eight, draws from his experience to explain how our great universities have abandoned their mission. Harvard is unique; it is the richest, oldest, most powerful university in America, and so it has set many standards, for better or worse. Lewis evaluates the failures of this grand institution--from the hot-button issue of grade inflation to the recent controversy over Harvard's handling of date rape cases--and makes an impassioned argument for change. The loss of purpose in America's great colleges is not inconsequential. Harvard, Yale, Stanford--these places drive American education, on which so much of our future depends. It is time to ask whether they are doing the job we want them to do

Efficient Symbolic Analysis of Programs by J. H Reif( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is concerned with constructing, for each expression in a given program text, a symbolic expression whose value is equal to the value of the text expression for all executions of the program. A cover is a mapping from text expressions to such symbolic expressions. Covers can be used for constant propagation, code motion, and a variety of other program optimizations. Covers can also be used as an aid in symbolic program execution and for finding loop invariants for program verification. We describe a direct (non-iterative) algorithm for computing a cover. The cover computed by an algorithm is characterized as the minimum of a certain fixed point equation, and is in general a better cover than might be computed by iteration methods (which can compute fixed point covers which are not minimal). Our algorithm is efficient and applicable to all flow graphs. A variant of an algorithm is implemented by (KK) in an optimizing compiler for Pascal. R1 extends our algorithm to symbolic analysis of programs with records, such as LISP and PASCAL programs. (Author)
