Abstract:

"The Concise Encyclopedia of Computer Science is the perfect desk reference to guide you beyond the hype and jargon that entangle computer technology and its ubiquitous applications." "Carefully edited to be readily accessible to the non-specialist, this concise edition comprises shortened versions of over 60% of the entries that appear in the full fourth edition of the Encyclopedia of Computer Science." "Extensive cross-referencing at the start of every article provides a clear roadmap to lead you to key related topics. You'll also find appendixes covering abbreviations, acronyms, notation and units, a timeline of significant milestones in computing, plus a full index. In short, all the back-up you'll need whether you are studying, teaching or working in the field of computing."--Jacket.
