Focuses on the deeper aspects of the two recognized subdivisions of Computer Science, Software and Hardware. These subdivisions are shown to be closely interrelated as a result of the stored-program concept. Computer Science: The Hardware, Software and Heart of It includes certain classical theoretical computer science topics such as Unsolvability (e.g. the halting problem) and Undecidability (e.g. Godel’s incompleteness theorem) that treat problems that exist under the Church-Turing thesis of computation. These problem topics explain inherent limits lying at the heart of software, and in effect define boundaries beyond which computer science professionals cannot go beyond. Newer topics such as Cloud Computing are also covered in this book. After a survey of traditional programming languages (e.g. Fortran and C++), a new kind of computer Programming for parallel/distributed computing is presented using the message-passing paradigm which is at the heart of large clusters of computers. This leads to descriptions of current hardware platforms for large-scale computing, such as clusters of as many as one thousand which are the new generation of supercomputers. This also leads to a consideration of future quantum computers and a possible escape from the Church-Turing thesis to a new computation paradigm

In the same chapter, a more complete and accurate description of transmission line impedance Parameters of transmission lines with ground ieturns has been provided. Chapter 9 is an entirely new chapter on the subject of network matrices.The topic of matrix factorization and its applications to matrix inversion is included. Also included is the modern approach of determining only needed elements of the impedance matrix. Chapter 10 on power flow solutions has been expanded to describe the modifications needed when practical limits are encountered. In Chapter 11, titled "Automatic Generation Control and the New Market Environment", some ideas currently being utilized for power system operation and control are introduced. Chapter 12 on unbalanced system operation and fault analysis has been substantially revised and includes new material describing industry practice

The third edition of this bestselling textbook on undergraduate controls continues to develop students' insight into control problems and methods for solving them. Because of the importance of design problems and their motivational effect on students, the authors emphasize design in addition to analysis techniques throughout the text. The book demonstrates the unifying principles behind numerous individual design techniques to assist students in creating their own problem-solving "toolbox". The latest edition of Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems reflects many of the recent advances in control system design including balanced coverage of frequency response and state space topics and an introduction to digital control

This book both introduces and relates the basic concepts of pattern recognition and neural networks. The first part provides a much-needed, current, and coherent view of pattern recognition. The author points to recent developments in several disciplines — artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer engineering, neurobiology, philosophy, and psychology — and shows how these developments have advanced both the science and the technology of pattern recognition — and thereby advanced our understanding of human perception and cognition and our design of intelligent systems. The second part of the book shows how adaptive pattern-recognition systems can be implemented using neural networks — that is, networks of elemental processors interconnected like their biological models. Neural-net implementations of pattern-recognition algorithms provide important, practical advantages by allowing iterative procedures to be implemented rapidly. But beyond those more immediate benefits, the author shows how a neural-net perspective on pattern information processing can stimulate us to be creative in visualizing new approaches

This is the first truly interdisciplinary text on data mining, blending the contributions of information science, computer science, and statistics. The book consists of three sections. The first, foundations, provides a tutorial overview of the principles underlying data mining algorithms and their application. The presentation emphasizes intuition rather than rigor. The second section, data mining algorithms, shows how algorithms are constructed to solve specific problems in a principled manner. The algorithms covered include trees and rules for classification and regression, association rules, belief networks, classical statistical models, nonlinear models such as neural networks, and local "memory-based" models. The third section shows how all of the preceding analysis fits together when applied to real-world data mining problems. Topics include the role of metadata, how to handle missing data, and data preprocessing

This best-selling title, considered for over a decade to be essential reading for every serious student and practitioner of computer design, has been updated throughout to address the most important trends facing computer designers today. In this edition, the authors bring their trademark method of quantitative analysis not only to high performance desktop machine design, but also to the design of embedded and server systems. They have illustrated their principles with designs from all three of these domains, including examples from consumer electronics, multimedia and web technologies, and high performance computing. The book retains its highly rated features: Fallacies and Pitfalls, which share the hard-won lessons of real designers; Historical Perspectives, which provide a deeper look at computer design history; Putting it all Together, which present a design example that illustrates the principles of the chapter; Worked Examples, which challenge the reader to apply the concepts, theories and methods in smaller scale problems; and Cross-Cutting Issues, which show how the ideas covered in one chapter interact with those presented in others
