Introduction to Algorithms, 3rd Edition

Thomas H. Cormen

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.

C# Deconstructed

Mohammad Rahman

C# Deconstructed answers a seemingly simply question: Just what is going on, exactly, when you run C# code on the .NET Framework? To answer this question we will dig ever deeper into the structure of the C# language and the onion-skin abstraction layers of the .NET Framework that underpins it. We’ll follow the execution thread downwards, first to MSIL (Microsoft Intermediate Language) then down through just-in-time compilation into Machine Code before finally seeing the results executed at the hardware level. The aim of this deep-dive is to provide you with a much more rounded knowledge of the environment within which you code exists. As a managed language, it’s best-practice to let the Framework deal with device interaction but you’ll find the experience of taking the cover off once in a while a very rewarding one that will greatly enrich your appreciate of the C# language and the way in which in functions. What you’ll learn Understand how C# handles your filesystem requests and passes them down to hard disks and memory Learn how RAM works and how programs map to address spaces Discover the C# compilation sequence in detail and follow it down from abstract code to actual function See how your device’s micro-processor executes Machine Code and just-in-time compilation provides it when it’s needed Learn how the Common Language Runtime (CLR) determines the execution of your code and handles Threading and Scheduling for your instructions Who this book is for This book is ideal for anyone who works with C# and has ever wondered what happens after they press F5. Table of Contents Anatomy of the C# compilation stack Data Access, Files and Storage Understanding Memory Usage The C# Compilation Sequence From CIL to Machine Code Execution through the CLR Execution Model II

Solaris Application Programming

Darryl Gove

Solaris(tm) Application Programming is a comprehensive guide to optimizing the performance of applications running in your Solaris environment. From the fundamentals of system performance to using analysis and optimization tools to their fullest, this wide-ranging resource shows developers and software architects how to get the most from Solaris systems and applications. Whether you're new to performance analysis and optimization or an experienced developer searching for the most efficient ways to solve performance issues, this practical guide gives you the background information, tips, and techniques for developing, optimizing, and debugging applications on Solaris. The text begins with a detailed overview of the components that affect system performance. This is followed by explanations of the many developer tools included with Solaris OS and the Sun Studio compiler, and then it takes you beyond the basics with practical, real-world examples. In addition, you will learn how to use the rich set of developer tools to identify performance problems, accurately interpret output from the tools, and choose the smartest, most efficient approach to correcting specific problems and achieving maximum system performance. Coverage includes A discussion of the chip multithreading (CMT) processors from Sun and how they change the way that developers need to think about performance A detailed introduction to the performance analysis and optimization tools included with the Solaris OS and Sun Studio compiler Practical examples for using the developer tools to their fullest, including informational tools, compilers, floating point optimizations, libraries and linking, performance profilers, and debuggers Guidelines for interpreting tool analysis output Optimization, including hardware performance counter metrics and source code optimizations Techniques for improving application performance using multiple processes, or multiple threads An overview of hardware and software components that affect system performance, including coverage of SPARC and x64 processors
