Hurricane Monitoring With Spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar
This book discusses in detail the science and morphology of powerful hurricane detection systems. It broadly addresses new approaches to monitoring hazards using freely available images from the European Space Agency’s (ESA’s) Sentinel-1 SAR satellite and benchmarks a new interdisciplinary field at the interface between oceanography, meteorology and remote sensing. Following the launch of the first European Space Agency (ESA) operational synthetic aperture radar satellite, Sentinel-1, in 2014, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data has been freely available on the Internet hub in real-time. This advance allows weather forecasters to view hurricanes in fine detail for the first time. As a result, the number of synthetic aperture radar research scientists working in this field is set to grow exponentially in the next decade; the book is a valuable resource for this large and budding audience.
This well-respected text for a first level course on computer organization has been thoroughly revised and updated. Computer Organization is suitable for a one-semester course in engineering or computer science programs and has a good mix if hardware- and software-oriented topics.The goal of the book is to illustrate the principles of computer organization by using a number of extensive examples drawn from commercially available computers. The authors feel this approach motivates the students and is the most practical. The machines discussed in Hamacher et. al. are the Motorola 680X0 and 683XX families, Intel 80X86 and Pentium families, ARM family, Sun Microsystems Sparc family, and DEC(Compaq) Alpha family. The 68000, Pentium, and ARM are used as detailed examples early in the book.
Data Structures Using C
Now in its second edition, D.S. Malik brings his proven approach to C++ programming to the CS2 course. Clearly written with the student in mind, this text focuses on Data Structures and includes advanced topics in C++ such as Linked Lists and the Standard Template Library (STL). The text features abundant visual diagrams, examples, and extended Programming Examples, all of which serve to illuminate difficult concepts. Complete programming code and clear display of syntax, explanation, and example are used throughout the text, and each chapter concludes with a robust exercise set. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
Data Structures Via C
Bringing together the fundamental topics of a traditional introductory data structures course and the current world of C++ and object-oriented programming, Data Structures via C++: Objects by Evolution offers an evolutionary approach to the subject. It combines a sound pedagogy for teaching data structures at the introductory (CS2) level with modern ideas in software engineering and object-oriented programming. The book introduces students (and instructors) to C++ and object-oriented programming using a "just-in-time" approach which leads readers from traditional techniques to more current ideas. This text emphasizes abstraction by introducing each new data structure first as an abstract data type (ADT), then discussing the external interface, and following with implementation. The primary data structures included are lists, stacks, queues, tables, trees, and graphs. All examples are developed using C++, and advanced features are introduced as needed or just-in-time. Berman's real-world examples, such as simulation of an Ethernet, robot navigation, and expression processing, help to illustrate use of data structures in concrete terms. C++ language features and object-oriented concepts, both very useful in solving problems encountered in the course, are also covered. Techniques of object-oriented programming are introduced, with a strong emphasis on encapsulation and detailed coverage of inheritance. An overview of software engineering is presented, including discussion of the software life-cycle, design, testing, assertions and loop invariants, and abstract data types. All supporting materials will be available to faculty and students via the World Wide Web at: http: //www.rowan.edu/evolve.

Why Life Speeds Up As You Get Older
Is it true, as the novelist Cees Nooteboom once wrote, that 'Memory is like a dog that lies down where it pleases'? Where do the long, lazy summers of our childhood go? Why is it that as we grow older time seems to condense, speed up, elude us, while in old age significant events from our distant past can seem as vivid and real as what happened yesterday? In this enchanting and thoughtful book, Douwe Draaisma, author of the internationally acclaimed Metaphors of Memory, explores the nature of autobiographical memory. Applying a unique blend of scholarship, poetic sensibility and keen observation he tackles such extraordinary phenomena as déjà-vu, near-death experiences, the memory feats of idiot-savants and the effects of extreme trauma on memory recall. Raising almost as many questions as it answers, this fascinating book will not fail to touch you at the same time as it educates and entertains.
