Most widely held works by University Video Communications
Object-oriented programming by Dan Ingalls( Visual )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes object-oriented programming, an approach in which software organization corresponds closely to the complex systems being simulated. Object-oriented programming supplants conventional procedure-calls with a more general mechanism of sending messages, and therefore greatly enhances the flexibility and reusability of software components
Tiger in a cage : applications of knowledge-based systems by Edward A Feigenbaum( Visual )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes successful applications of two types of knowledge-based computer systems: expert systems and knowledge systems
Doing with images makes symbols : communicating with computers by Alan A Kay( Visual )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gives history of the computer, the story of the window and mouse designs, best known on the Apple Macintosh, and Sketchpad, a program from the 1960's. Explores human psychology and the multimentality theories involved with the design of PARC
The shortest network problem by Ronald L Graham( Visual )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 67 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
Operating systems architecture in the 1990s by Jim Mitchell( Visual )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lecture by Jim Mitchell of Sun Microsystems, Inc. Discusses the need to develop a new operating systems architecture, different from the currently successful systems. Presents requirements for success and a description of current work toward this goal
The design of C++ by Bjarne Stroustrup( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 62 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
How things really work : two inventors on innovation by Gordon Bell( Visual )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 55 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
NP-complete problems by Richard M Karp( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 55 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
Encapsulation and inheritance in C++ by Mark Linton( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 54 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
Parallel processing by Tilak K Agerwala( Visual )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 51 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
The 11 rules of supercomputer design by C. Gordon Bell( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 47 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
Data parallel algorithms by Guy L Steele( Visual )

2 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 46 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. Outlines the data parallel programming environment, detailing elementwise operations, conditionals, replication, reduction, permutation, and scanning. He uses specific parallel algorithms to show the use of these building blocks in real applications. Ends with a Q & A session
How to improve software engineering practices by Susan Rosenbaum( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 46 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
Introduction to optical communications by R. W Lucky( Visual )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes how digital communications and the invention of the laser led to the development of optical communications
Massively parallel supercomputing : the Connection Machine by W. Daniel Hillis( Visual )

2 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 44 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. Discusses the major design issues he faced in building the Connection Machine: balancing processing, communication and I/O. Followed by a Q & A session
Story of SPARC architecture by David A Patterson( Visual )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rosing presents the background of the business environment during the development and introduction of SPARC. Patterson discusses principles of RISC design and interesting features of SPARC architecture. Comments on historical perspectives and future directions; also shows three SPARC boards running at three clock rates progressively taking much more power and board area
Computer security in distributed systems by Butler W Lampson( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 43 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
Natural language access to databases by Ira Goldstein( Visual )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
