The C Programming Language by Brian W. Kernighan, Dennis M. Ritchie pdf free download.

The authors present the complete guide to ANSI standard C language programming. Written by the developers of C, this new version helps readers keep up with the finalized ANSI standard for C while showing how to take advantage of C’s rich set of operators, economy of expression, improved control flow, and data structures. The 2/E has been completely rewritten with additional examples and problem sets to clarify the implementation of difficult language constructs. For years, C programmers have let K&R guide them to building well-structured and efficient programs. Now this same help is available to those working with ANSI compilers. Includes detailed coverage of the C language plus the official C language reference manual for at-a-glance help with syntax notation, declarations, ANSI changes, scope rules, and the list goes on and on.

Amazon.com Review

Just about every C programmer I respect learned C from this book. Unlike many of the 1,000 page doorstops stuffed with CD-ROMs that have become popular, this volume is concise and powerful (if somewhat dangerous) — like C itself. And it was written by Kernighan himself. Need we say more?

From the Publisher

This second editon describes C as defined by the ANSI standard. This book is meant to help the reader learn how to program in C. The book assumes some familiarity with basic programming concepts like variables, assignment statements, loops, and functions. A novice programmer should be able to read along and pick up the language.
This is still the best book for learning C programming, and it’s the book I used over twenty years ago when I was seeking to increase my mastery of the language.

Description:

Introduction to Algorithms pdf free download by Thomas H. Cormen, Charles E. Leiserson, Ronald L. Rivest, Clifford Stein.

Some books on algorithms are rigorous but incomplete; others cover masses of material but lack rigor. Introduction to Algorithms uniquely combines rigor and comprehensiveness. The book covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers. Each chapter is relatively self-contained and can be used as a unit of study. The algorithms are described in English and in a pseudocode designed to be readable by anyone who has done a little programming. The explanations have been kept elementary without sacrificing depth of coverage or mathematical rigor.

The first edition became a widely used text in universities worldwide as well as the standard reference for professionals. The second edition featured new chapters on the role of algorithms, probabilistic analysis and randomized algorithms, and linear programming. The third edition has been revised and updated throughout. It includes two completely new chapters, on van Emde Boas trees and multithreaded algorithms, substantial additions to the chapter on recurrence (now called “Divide-and-Conquer”), and an appendix on matrices. It features improved treatment of dynamic programming and greedy algorithms and a new notion of edge-based flow in the material on flow networks. Many new exercises and problems have been added for this edition. As of the third edition, this textbook is published exclusively by the MIT Press.

Review

As an educator and researcher in the field of algorithms for over two decades, I can unequivocally say that the Cormen et al book is the best textbook that I have ever seen on this subject. It offers an incisive, encyclopedic, and modern treatment of algorithms, and our department will continue to use it for teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as a reliable research reference.

SIP Demystified by Gonzalo Camarillo pdf free download.

State-of-the-art SIP primer

SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is the open standard that will make IP telephony an irresistible force in communications, doing for converged services what http does for the Web. SIP Demystified – authored by Gonzalo Camarillo, one of the contributors to SIP development in the IETF―gives you the tools to keep your company and career competitive. This guide tells you why the standard is needed, what architectures it supports, and how it interacts with other protocols. As a bonus, you even get a context-setting background in data networking. Perfect if you’re moving from switched voice into a data networking environment.

From the Back Cover

SEE SIP IN A BROAD COMMUNICATIONS CONTEXTASSESS WHAT SIP CAN DO AND DELIVER

EVALUATE SIP’s FIT WITH OTHER STANDARDS AND SYSTEMS

PLAN NEW SIP-ENABLED SERVICES

The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is the signalling protocol that will deliver IP multimedia services for the third generation of mobile systems. It will merge together the cellular and Internet worlds. It will provide ubiquitous access to the services it enables, and make us a truly mobile population for the first time. These are not small claims, which might explain why some people have started looking to SIP as an all-purpose solution to building the telecom future.

In fact, SIP is a powerful but limited protocol, with a well-defined scope. This book describes it in the context its framers intended, and meticulously explains how to use it as a transformative tool for telecom services. Written by one of the earliest contributors to SIP development in the IETF, SIP DEMYSTIFIED takes a long look at the “what’s” and “why’s” of today’s most talked-about protocol, helping readers to move past the buzz, get poised for 3G, and start developing tomorrow’s applications.

Complex Engineered Systems: Science Meets Technology pdf free download by Dan Braha, Ali A. Minai, Yaneer Bar-Yam

Complex Engineered Systems: Science Meets Technology pdf free download by Dan Braha, Ali A. Minai, Yaneer Bar-Yam

Description:

Recent advances in science and technology have led to a rapid increase
in the complexity of most engineered systems. In many notable cases,
this change has been a qualitative one rather than merely one of magnitude.
A new class of Complex Engineered Systems (CES) has emerged as a result
of technologies such as the Internet, GPS, wireless networking, micro-robotics, MEMS, fiber-optics and nanotechnology.

This book sheds light on the large-scale engineering systems that shape and guide our everyday lives. It does this by bringing together the latest research and practice defining the emerging field of Complex Engineered Systems. Understanding, designing, building and controlling such complex systems is going to be a central challenge for engineers in the coming decades. This book is a step toward addressing that challenge.

From the Back Cover

Every time that we take money out of an ATM, surf the internet or simply turn on a light switch, we enjoy the benefits of complex engineered systems. Systems like power grids and global communication networks are so ubiquitous in our daily lives that we usually take them for granted, only noticing them when they break down. But how do such amazing technologies and infrastructures come to be what they are? How are these systems designed? How do distributed networks work? How are they made to respond rapidly in ‘real time’? And as the demands that we place on these systems become increasingly complex, are traditional systems-engineering practices still relevant?

This volume examines the difficulties that arise in creating highly complex engineered systems and new approaches that are being adopted. Topics addressed range from the formal representation and classification of distributed networked systems to revolutionary engineering practices inspired by biological evolution. By bringing together the latest research in Complex Engineered Systems, this book sheds light on the current state and future course of this emerging field.

Joint Cognitive Systems: Patterns in Cognitive Systems Engineering by David D. Woods, Erik Hollnagel pdf free download

Joint Cognitive Systems: Patterns in Cognitive Systems Engineering by David D. Woods, Erik Hollnagel pdf free download

Description:

Nothing has been more prolific over the past century than human/machine interaction. Automobiles, telephones, computers, manufacturing machines, robots, office equipment, machines large and small; all affect the very essence of our daily lives. However, this interaction has not always been efficient or easy and has at times turned fairly hazardous. Cognitive Systems Engineering (CSE) seeks to improve this situation by the careful study of human/machine interaction as the meaningful behavior of a unified system.

Written by pioneers in the development of CSE, Joint Cognitive Systems: Foundations of Cognitive Systems Engineering offers a principled approach to studying human work with complex technology. The authors use a top-down, functional approach and emphasize a proactive (coping) perspective on work that overcomes the limitations of the structural human information processing view. They describe a conceptual framework for analysis with concrete theories and methods for joint system modeling that can be applied across the spectrum of single human/machine systems, social/technical systems, and whole organizations. The book explores both current and potential applications of CSE illustrated by examples.

Understanding the complexities and functions of the human/machine interaction is critical to designing safe, highly functional, and efficient technological systems. This is a critical reference for students, designers, and engineers in a wide variety of disciplines.

Review

This book was written by pioneers in the field and offers a principled approach to studying human work with complex technology. … It seems destined to become a classic in the field.
