Agile Software Engineering (Undergraduate Topics in Computer Science)

By Orit Hazzan

Assessment and pursuits The agile strategy for software program improvement has been utilized increasingly more commonly because the mid nineties of the 20 th century. even though there are just approximately ten years of amassed adventure utilizing the agile method, it truly is at present conceived as one of many mainstream methods for software program improvement. This ebook provides an entire software program engineering path from the agile attitude. Our purpose is to give the agile technique in a holistic and compreh- sive studying setting that matches either and academia and conjures up the spirit of agile software program improvement. Agile software program engineering is reviewed during this ebook throughout the following 3 views: l The Human viewpoint, such as cognitive and social elements, and refers to studying and interpersonal tactics among teammates, shoppers, and administration. l The Organizational standpoint, along with managerial and cultural points, and refers to software program venture administration and keep watch over. l The Technological standpoint, along with functional and technical facets, and refers to layout, trying out, and coding, in addition to to integration, supply, and upkeep of software program items. in particular, we clarify and learn how the specific consciousness that agile software program improvement provides those views and their interconnections, is helping viii Preface it do something about the demanding situations of software program initiatives. This multifaceted standpoint on software program improvement approaches is mirrored during this ebook, between alternative ways, by way of the bankruptcy titles, which specify dimensions of software program improvement tasks reminiscent of caliber, time, abstraction, and administration, instead of particular undertaking phases, stages, or practices.

Knapsack Problems

By Hans Kellerer

13 years have handed because the seminal publication on knapsack difficulties by way of Martello and Toth seemed. in this get together a former colleague exclaimed again in 1990: "How are you able to write 250 pages at the knapsack problem?" certainly, the definition of the knapsack challenge is well understood even by way of a non-expert who won't suspect the presence of difficult learn subject matters during this sector on the first look. although, within the final decade various learn guides contributed new effects for the knapsack challenge in all parts of curiosity resembling designated algorithms, heuristics and approximation schemes. additionally, the extension of the knapsack challenge to better dimensions either within the variety of constraints and within the num­ ber of knapsacks, in addition to the amendment of the matter constitution about the to be had merchandise set and the target functionality, results in a few fascinating adaptations of functional relevance that have been the topic of in depth learn over the last few years. accordingly, years in the past the belief arose to provide a brand new monograph overlaying not just the latest advancements of the traditional knapsack challenge, but additionally giving a entire therapy of the total knapsack kinfolk together with the siblings equivalent to the subset sum challenge and the bounded and unbounded knapsack challenge, and in addition extra far away family members reminiscent of multidimensional, a number of, multiple-choice and quadratic knapsack difficulties in devoted chapters.

High Fidelity Haptic Rendering (Synthesis Lectures in Computer Graphics and Animation)

The human haptic procedure, between all senses, presents detailed and bidirectional verbal exchange among people and their actual setting. but, thus far, so much human-computer interactive platforms have centred totally on the graphical rendering of visible details and, to a lesser quantity, at the show of auditory info. Extending the frontier of visible computing, haptic interfaces, or strength suggestions units, have the capability to extend the standard of human-computer interplay via accommodating the experience of contact. they supply an enticing augmentation to visible reveal and improve the extent of realizing of complicated info units. they've been successfully used for a few functions together with molecular docking, manipulation of nano-materials, surgical education, digital prototyping, and electronic sculpting. in comparison with visible and auditory reveal, haptic rendering has super hard computational requisites. on the way to retain a solid approach whereas showing tender and sensible forces and torques, excessive haptic replace charges within the variety of 5001000 Hz or extra are usually used. Haptics current many new demanding situations to researchers and builders in special effects and interactive thoughts. a number of the serious concerns contain the advance of novel info constructions to encode form and fabric homes, in addition to new suggestions for geometry processing, info research, actual modeling, and haptic visualization. This synthesis examines a number of the newest advancements on haptic rendering, whereas watching for interesting destiny examine during this region. It provides novel haptic rendering algorithms that benefit from the human haptic sensory modality. particularly it discusses diverse rendering ideas for numerous geometric representations (e.g. point-based, polygonal, multiresolution, distance fields, etc), in addition to textured surfaces. It additionally indicates how psychophysics of contact supplies the foundational layout guidance for constructing perceptually pushed strength versions and concludes with attainable purposes and concerns to contemplate in destiny algorithmic layout, validating rendering ideas, and comparing haptic interfaces.
