The Art of Prolog, Second Edition: Advanced Programming by Ehud Sterling Leon; Shapiro

By Ehud Sterling Leon; Shapiro

This re-creation of The paintings of Prolog includes a variety of vital alterations. such a lot heritage sections on the finish of every bankruptcy were up-to-date to take account of vital fresh study effects, the references were enormously extended, and extra complex workouts were further that have been used effectively in educating the course.

half II, The Prolog Language, has been converted to be appropriate with the recent Prolog normal, and the bankruptcy on software improvement has been considerably altered: the predicates outlined were moved to extra applicable chapters, the part on potency has been moved to the significantly elevated bankruptcy on cuts and negation, and a brand new part has been additional on stepwise enhancement—a systematic manner of creating Prolog courses constructed by way of Leon Sterling.

All yet one of many chapters partially III, complicated Prolog Programming suggestions, were considerably replaced, with a few significant rearrangements. a brand new bankruptcy on interpreters describes a rule language and interpreter for specialist platforms, which greater illustrates how Prolog will be used to build professional platforms. The bankruptcy on application transformation is totally new and the bankruptcy on common sense grammars provides new fabric for spotting uncomplicated languages, displaying how grammars observe to extra machine technological know-how examples.

Agile Processes in Software Engineering and Extreme by Normand Séguin, Guy Tremblay, Houda Bagane (auth.), Claes

By Normand Séguin, Guy Tremblay, Houda Bagane (auth.), Claes Wohlin (eds.)

This publication includes the refereed court cases of the thirteenth overseas convention on Agile software program improvement, XP 2012, held in Malmö, Sweden, in may well 2012.

In the decade, we've seen agile and lean software program improvement strongly impression the way in which software program is constructed. Agile and lean software program improvement has moved from being a fashion of operating for a couple of pioneers to turning into, kind of, the anticipated method of constructing software program in undefined. the subjects lined by way of the chosen complete papers comprise normal facets of agility, agile groups, stories with regards to the discharge and upkeep of software program, and study on particular practices in agile and lean software program improvement. they're complemented via 4 brief papers taking pictures extra facets of agile and lean projects.

Exploring Natural Language: Working With the British by Gerald Nelson, Sean Wallis, Bas Aarts

By Gerald Nelson, Sean Wallis, Bas Aarts

ICE-GB is a 1 million-word corpus of up to date British English. it truly is totally parsed, and includes over 83,000 syntactic timber. including the committed retrieval software program, ICECUP, ICE-GB is an unparalleled source for the research of English syntax. "Exploring typical Language" is a complete advisor to either corpus and software program. It encompasses a complete reference for ICE-GB. The chapters on ICECUP supply entire directions at the use of the numerous beneficial properties of the software program, together with concordancing, lexical and grammatical searches, sociolinguistic queries, random sampling, and looking for syntactic constructions utilizing ICECUP's Fuzzy Tree Fragment versions. precise cognizance is given to the rules of experimental layout in a parsed corpus. Six case reviews offer step by step illustrations of ways the corpus and software program can be utilized to discover genuine linguistic concerns, from basic lexical stories to extra advanced syntactic issues, resembling noun word constitution, verb transitivity, and voice.

FST TCS 2002: Foundations of Software Technology and by H. W. Lenstra Jr. (auth.), Manindra Agrawal, Anil Seth

By H. W. Lenstra Jr. (auth.), Manindra Agrawal, Anil Seth (eds.)

This quantity includes the court cases of the twenty second overseas convention at the Foundations of software program expertise and Theoretical desktop technological know-how (FSTTCS 2002), prepared below the auspices of the Indian organization for study in Computing technology (IARCS). The convention used to be held on the Indian Institute of know-how, Kanpur in the course of December 12–14, 2002. The convention attracted 108 submissions (of which have been withdrawn). of those, a complete of 26 papers have been chosen for presentation within the convention. As within the final 12 months, the computer assembly used to be held electronically (stretching over approximately 3 weeks in August 2002) and used to be an exceptional luck. as well as the contributed papers, we had ?ve invited audio system this yr: Hendrik Lenstra, Jr., Harry Mairson, Dale Miller, Chih-Hao Luke Ong, and Margus Veanes. We thank them for accepting our invitation and for supplying abstracts (or even complete papers) for the complaints. workshops have been geared up along with the convention – either in Kanpur. A workshop on Parameterized Complexity was once held in the course of December 10–11, geared up by means of Mike Fellows and Venkatesh Raman. the second one workshop really consisted of 3 miniworkshops: on Coding conception through Madhu Sudan; on Finite box Algorithms through Hendrik Lenstra, Jr.; and on Sieve conception through R. Balasubramanian. we want to thank the entire reviewers and computing device individuals who contributed drastically to creating the convention successful. We additionally desire to thank the crew at Springer- Verlag for his or her assist in getting ready the proceedings.
