Structure and interpretation of computer programs by Harold Abelson ( Book )
77 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 2,228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs has had a dramatic impact on computer science curricula over the past decade. This long-awaited revision contains changes throughout the text." "There are new implementations of most of the major programming systems in the book, including the interpreters and compilers, and the authors have incorporated many small changes that reflect their experience teaching the course at MIT since the first edition was published." "A new theme has been introduced that emphasizes the central role played by different approaches to dealing with time in computational models: objects with state, concurrent programming, functional programming and lazy evaluation, and nondeterministic programming. There are new example sections on higher-order procedures in graphics and on applications of stream processing in numerical programming, and many new exercises." "In addition, all the programs have been reworked to run in any Scheme implementation that adheres to the IEEE standard."--Jacket
Architects of the information society 35 years of the Laboratory for Computer Science at MIT by Simson Garfinkel ( )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Laboratory for Computer Science (LCS) has been responsible for some of the most significant technological achievements of the past few decades. Much of the hardware and software driving the information revolution has been, and continues to be, created at LCS. Anyone who sends and receives email, communicates with colleagues through a LAN, surfs the Web, or makes decisions using a spreadsheet is benefiting from the creativity of LCS members." "LCS is an interdepartmental laboratory that brings together faculty, researchers, and students in a broad program of study, research, and experimentation. Their principal goal is to pursue innovations in information technology that will improve people's lives. LCS members have been instrumental in the development of ARPAnet, the Internet, the Web, Ethernet, time-shared computers, UNIX, RSA encryption, the X Windows system, NuBus, and many other technologies." "This book, published in celebration of LCS's thirty-fifth anniversary, chronicles its history, achievements, and continued importance to computer science. The essays are complemented by historical photographs."--BOOK JACKET
Turtle geometry : the computer as a medium for exploring mathematics by Harold Abelson ( Book )
33 editions published between 1978 and 1992 in English and held by 1,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Turtle Geometry presents an innovative program of mathematical discovery that demonstrates how the effective use of personal computers can profoundly change the nature of a student's contact with mathematics. Using this book and a few simple computer programs, students can explore the properties of space by following an imaginary turtle across the screen. The concept of turtle geometry grew out of the Logo Group at MIT. Directed by Seymour Papert, author of Mindstorms, this group has done extensive work with preschool children, high school students and university undergraduates
Blown to bits : your life, liberty, and happiness after the digital explosion by Harold Abelson ( Book )
13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 669 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
