The shortest network problem by Ronald L Graham ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dr. Graham's lecture explores the Steiner problem which asks for the shortest network of line segments to interconnect a set of given points in the design of highway systems, oil pipelines, air conditioning systems and integrated circuits on silicon chips. Provides an introduction to NP-completeness, a fundamental concept in theoretical computer science
The design of C++ by Bjarne Stroustrup ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bjarne Stroustrup describes the origins, aims and design rules for C++, and then presents key language features and the programming techniques they support. Finally, he discusses current uses of C++ the standardization effort, and likely future uses of C++. Throughout, he emphasizes why C++ looks the way it does. Stroustrup explains the language features which most directly support data abstraction, object-oriented programming, and the design and use of large systems: classes, abstract classes, templates, class hierarchies, run-time type information, namespaces and templates
NP-complete problems by Richard M Karp ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Defines NP-complete problems. A combinatorial search problem involves searching through a finite, but very large, set of possible patterns or arrangements for one that satisfies a stated set of constraints
How things really work two inventors on innovation by Gordon Bell ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The essence of innovation is revealed through discussions on how new products come into being, what marketing should know, how perseverance pays and what governs the evolution of technology
Encapsulation and inheritance in C++ by Mark Linton ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
C++ provides a variety of features, but knowing when and how to use these features is difficult. This talk draws on experience to illustrate how to use encapsulation and inheritance in the development of class libraries and applications. Encapsulating the interface to a group of C++ classes requires indirect object creation to hide implementation-dependent classes. Inheritance is both powerful and dangerous, so one must be careful to weigh alternatives such as composition, delegation and wiring, before using either single or multiple inheritance
Introduction to optical communications by R. W Lucky ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Describes how digital communications and the invention of the laser led to the development of optical communications
Parallel processing by Tilak K Agerwala ( Visual )
4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A lecture presented by Dr. Agerwala at Columbia University, describing various forms of parallel processing, including clusters, multiprocessors and highly parallel processors
How to improve software engineering practices by Susan Rosenbaum ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Improving software engineering practices in an organization can be effected through a variety of activities. Susan Rosenbaum describes some of the more common problems and illustrates successful improvement activities, including capability assessments, training, and collaboration
Data parallel algorithms by Guy Steele ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lecture by Guy Steele, Jr. of Thinking Machines. Steele is a senior scientist who directs design/implementation of parallel programming languages for the Connection Machine.

Computer security in distributed systems by Butler W Lampson ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The basic services for building a secure computer system are authentication, authorization, and auditing; they are hard to implement in a distributed system. This lecture describes how to set up secure communication channels using encryption, establish a hierarchy of servers to authenticate the users of these channels, grant access to the authorized users listed on each object, and record each step in an audit trail
The 11 rules of supercomputer design by C. Gordon Bell ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Describes the goals, process and outcome of the design of Ardent's Titan: a vector, multiprocessor architecture, combining high-performance computation and graphics for a single user to create a distributed supercomputing environment to permit instant views of complex simulations like molecular combinations, or the performance of a new airplane wing
Massively parallel supercomputing the Connection Machine by W. Daniel Hillis ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lecture by Daniel Hillis of Thinking Machines Corp. Contrasts Von Newmann machines with data parallel machines. Tells why Amdahl's law does not seem to hurt parallel machines.
