Peter J. Bentley explores how this young discipline grew from its theoretical conception by pioneers such as Turing, through its growth spurts in the Internet, its difficult adolescent stage where the promises of AI were never achieved and dot-com bubble burst, to its current stage as a(semi)mature field, now capable of remarkable achievements. Charting the successes and failures of computer science through the years, Bentley discusses what innovations may change our world in the future.

Computer Systems

Computer Systems, Fifth Edition provides a clear, detailed, step-by-step introduction to the central concepts in computer organization, assembly language, and computer architecture. It urges students to explore the many dimensions of computer systems through a top-down approach to levels of abstraction. By examining how the different levels of abstraction relate to one another, the text helps students look at computer systems and their components as a unified concept. New & Key Features:- New high-order language -- The high-order language is changed from C++ to C. The C language is more common as a systems programming language and is more appropriate for a computer systems text.

Computer Networking

Computer Networking:  The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Learning the Basics of Network Security, Computer Architecture, Wireless Technology and Communications Systems (Including Cisco, CCENT, and CCNA)

Computer Systems

Computer systems: A Programmer’s Perspective explains the underlying elements common among all computer systems and how they affect general application performance. Written from the programmer’s perspective, this book strives to teach readers how understanding basic elements of computer systems and executing real practice can lead them to create better programs. Spanning across computer science themes such as hardware architecture, the operating system, and systems software, the Third Edition serves as a comprehensive introduction to programming. This book strives to create programmers who understand all elements of computer systems and will be able to engage in any application of the field--from fixing faulty software, to writing more capable programs, to avoiding common flaws. It lays the groundwork for readers to delve into more intensive topics such as computer architecture, embedded systems, and cybersecurity.

Embedded Computer Systems: Architectures, Modeling, and Simulation

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Embedded Computer Systems: Architectures, Modeling, and Simulation, SAMOS 2020, held in Samos, Greece, in July 2020.* The 16 regular papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 35 submissions. In addition, 9 papers from two special sessions were included, which were organized on topics of current interest: innovative architectures for security and European projects on embedded and high performance computing for health applications. * The conference was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Human-Computer Systems Interaction

This book presents a fascinating, state-of-the-art collection of papers on the recent advances in human-computer systems interaction (H-CSI). It offers a detailed description of the status quo in the H-CSI field and also provides a solid base for further development and research in the area. The content is divided into three parts: I. Aid systems for disabled people; II. Decision-making support systems; and III. Information and communication systems. It is intended for a wide audience of readers who are not necessarily experts in computer science, machine learning or knowledge engineering, but are interested in human-computer systems interaction, and the combination of general and specific papers offers readers deeper insights than might be gleaned from research papers or talks at conferences. It touches on all the current hot topics in the field of H-CSI.

Introduction to Computer Networking

This book gives a broad look at both fundamental networking technology and new areas that support it and use it. It is a concise introduction to the most prominent, recent technological topics in computer networking. Topics include network technology such as wired and wireless networks, enabling technologies such as data centers, software defined networking, cloud and grid computing and applications such as networks on chips, space networking and network security. The accessible writing style and non-mathematical treatment makes this a useful book for the student, network and communications engineer, computer scientist and IT professional.

E-business and telecommunications : 14th International Joint Conference

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 14th International Joint Conference on E-Business and Telecommunications, ICETE 2017, held in Madrid, Spain, in July 2017. ICETE is a joint international conference integrating four major areas of knowledge that are divided into six corresponding conferences: International Conference on Data Communication Networking, DCNET; International Conference on E-Business, ICE-B; International Conference on Optical Communication Systems, OPTICS; International Conference on Security and Cryptography, SECRYPT; International Conference on Signal Processing and Multimedia, SIGMAP; International Conference on Wireless Information Systems, WINSYS. The 17 full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 195 submissions. The papers cover the following key areas of information and communication technologies, including data communication and networking, e-business and telecommunications: data communication networking; e-business; optical communication systems; security and cryptography; signal processing and multimedia applications; wireless networks and mobile systems.

Probabilistic methods in telecommunications

Probabilistic modeling and analysis of spatial telecommunication systems have never been more important than they are today. In particular, it is an essential research area for designing and developing next-generation communication networks that are based on multihop message transmission technology. These lecture notes provide valuable insights into the underlying mathematical discipline, stochastic geometry, introducing the theory, mathematical models and basic concepts. They also discuss the latest applications of the theory to telecommunication systems. The text covers several of the most fundamental aspects of quality of service: connectivity, coverage, interference, random environments, and propagation of malware. It especially highlights two important limiting scenarios of large spatial systems: the high-density limit and the ergodic limit. The book also features an analysis of extreme events and their probabilities based on the theory of large deviations. Lastly, it includes a large number of exercises offering ample opportunities for independent self-study.
