Computers are the most complex machines that have ever been created. This book will tell you how they work, and no technical knowledge is required. It explains in great detail the operation of a simple but functional computer. Although transistors are mentioned, relays are used in the example circuitry for simplicity. Did you ever wonder what a bit, a pixel, a latch, a word (of memory), a data bus, an address bus, a memory, a register, a processor, a timing diagram, a clock (of a processor), an instruction, or machine code is? Unlike most explanations of how computers work which are a lot of analogies or require a background in electrical engineering, this book will tell you precisely what each of them is and how each of them works without requiring any previous knowledge of computers, programming, or electronics. This book starts out very simple and gets more complex as it goes along, but everything is explained. The processor and memory are mainly covered.

Intelligence and the Brain

Solving the Mystery of why People Differ in IQ and how a Child Can be a Genius

This book turns the corner and finally provides a convincing explanation of IQ and human intelligence. It begins by rejecting some of the most basic assumptions that psychologists make about intelligence, including that intelligence should be defined by behaviour. Instead, it argues that intelligence is about the ability to understand. It then uses recent scientific findings about the brain to show how changes in the brain lead to understanding. Readers will find that this book contains many revelations that will profoundly change their perception of how their own brain works. This book will also explore the startling implication of a "sensitive period" for developing intelligence, arguing that children can learn differently than adults. Anyone who is interested in how the brain works, why people differ in intelligence, and how a child can be a genius will want to read this book.

Mit der deutschen Übersetzung zur fünfter Auflage des amerikanischen Klassikers Computer Organization and Design - The Hardware/Software Interface ist das Standardwerk zur Rechnerorganisation wieder auf dem neusten Stand - David A. Patterson und John L. Hennessy gewähren die gewohnten Einblicke in das Zusammenwirken von Hard- und Software, Leistungseinschätzungen und zahlreicher Rechnerkonzepte in einer Tiefe, die zusammen mit klarer Didaktik und einer eher lockeren Sprache den Erfolg dieses weltweit anerkannten Standardwerks begründen. Patterson und Hennessy achten darauf, nicht nur auf das "Wie" der dargestellten Konzepte, sondern auch auf ihr "Warum" einzugehen und zeigen damit Gründe für Veränderungen und neue Entwicklungen auf. Jedes der Kapitel steht für einen deutlich umrissenen Teilbereich der Rechnerorganisation und ist jeweils gleich aufgebaut: Eine Einleitung, gefolgt von immer tiefgreifenderen Grundkonzepten mit steigernder Komplexität. Darauf eine aktuelle Fallstudie, "Fallstricke und Fehlschlüsse", Zusammenfassung und Schlussbetrachtung, historische Perspektiven und Literaturhinweise sowie Aufgaben. In der neuen Auflage sind die Inhalte in den Kapiteln 1-5 an vielen Stellen punktuell verbessert und aktualisiert, mit der Vorstellung neuerer Prozessoren worden, und der Kapitel 6... from Client to Cloud wurde stark überarbeitetUmfangreiches Zusatzmaterial (Werkzeuge mit Tutorien etc.) stehtOnline zur Verfügung.

Eines der Hauptprobleme beim Chipentwurf besteht darin, daß die Anzahl der zu bewältigenden Kombinationen der einzelnen Chipbausteine ins Unermeßliche steigt. Hier hat sich eine sehr fruchtbare Verbindung zu einem Kerngebiet der Theoretischen Informatik, dem Gebiet des Entwurfs von Datenstrukturen und effizienten Algorithmen, herstellen lassen: das Konzept der geordneten binären Entscheidungsgraphen, das in zahlreichen CAD-Projekten zu einer beträchtlichen Leistungssteigerung geführt hat. Die Autoren stellen die Grundlagen dieses interdisziplinären Forschungsgebiets dar und behandeln wichtige Anwendungen aus dem rechnergestützten Schaltkreisentwurf.

Die Wissenschaften vom Künstlichen von Herbert A. Simon gilt seit dem Erscheinen der ersten Ausgabe im Jahr 1969 als "Klassiker" der Literatur zum Thema Künstliche Intelligenz. Simon hat zusammen mit den Computerwissenschaftlern Allen Newell, Marvin Minsky und John McCarthy Mitte der fünfziger Jahre das so bezeichnete - von Alan Turing antizipierte - Forschungsgebiet der Computerwissenschaft und der Psychologie ins Leben gerufen. Seine herausragende, allgemeinverständliche Darstellung von Grundüberlegungen und philosophischen Aspekten der Künstlichen Intelligenz ist heute aktueller denn je, nicht nur wegen der ständig zunehmenden Bedeutung der Forschung und Entwicklung auf diesem Gebiet, sondern auch aufgrund des verbreiteten Mangels an Grundkenntnissen für eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit der Künstlichen Intelligenz.

Today all computers, from tablet/desktop computers to super computers, work in parallel. A basic knowledge of the architecture of parallel computers and how to program them, is thus, essential for students of computer science and IT professionals. In its second edition, the book retains the lucidity of the first edition and has added new material to reflect the advances in parallel computers. It is designed as text for the final year undergraduate students of computer science and engineering and information technology. It describes the principles of designing parallel computers and how to program them. This second edition, while retaining the general structure of the earlier book, has added two new chapters, ‘Core Level Parallel Processing’ and ‘Grid and Cloud Computing’ based on the emergence of parallel computers on a single silicon chip popularly known as multicore processors and the rapid developments in Cloud Computing. All chapters have been revised and some chapters are re-written to reflect the emergence of multicore processors and the use of MapReduce in processing vast amounts of data. The new edition begins with an introduction to how to solve problems in parallel and describes how parallelism is used in improving the performance of computers. The topics discussed include instruction level parallel processing, architecture of parallel computers, multicore processors, grid and cloud computing, parallel algorithms, parallel programming, compiler transformations, operating systems for parallel computers, and performance evaluation of parallel computers.
