Encyclopedia of computer science by Anthony Ralston( Book )

82 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 3,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edition contains over 100 completely new articles, ranging from artificial life to computer ethics, data mining to Java, mobile computing to quantum computing and software safety to the World Wide Web. In addition the 623 articles have been rigorously scrutinized and subjected to update, deletion or merging with new material." "Each article elaborates its subject, allowing readers to benefit from a substantive discussion that they can readily apply to their work. Additionally, each article has been written by a carefully selected and distinguished specialist." "Like the articles, all the visual material has undergone editorial scrutiny. For this edition artwork has been uniformly redrawn and updated to underpin the visual power of the Encyclopedia. This edition of the Encyclopedia extends the color insert that first appeared in the previous edition to 16 pages, spotlighting advanced computer applications and providing further evidence of the explosive growth of the use of computer-generated graphics technology in the science and entertainment industries." "Within each major heading are scores of articles that provide the user with uniquely broad yet detailed coverage. Cross-references can be found at the beginning of articles, helping to direct the reader immediately to related material."--Jacket

The Future of college mathematics : proceedings of a conference/workshop on the first two years of college mathematics by Anthony Ralston( Book )

16 editions published in 1983 in English and German and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Conference/Workshop of which these are the proceedings was held frcm 28 June to 1 July, 1982 at Williams College, Williamstown, MA. The meeting was funded in its entirety by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The conference program and the list of participants follow this introduction. The purpose of the conference was to discuss the re-structuring of the first two years of college mathematics to provide some balance between the traditional ca1cu1us linear algebra sequence and discrete mathematics. The remainder of this volume contains arguments both for and against such a change and some ideas as to what a new curriculum might look like. A too brief summary of the deliberations at Williams is that, while there were - and are - inevitable differences of opinion on details and nuance, at least the attendees at this conference had no doubt that change in the lower division mathematics curriculum is desirable and is coming

The Influence of computers and informatics on mathematics and its teaching by R. F Churchhouse( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1986, the first ICMI study is concerned with the influence of computers and computer science on mathematics and its teaching in the last years of school and at tertiary level. In particular, it explores the way the computer has influenced mathematics itself and the way in which mathematicians work, likely influences on the curriculum of high-school and undergraduate students, and the way in which the computer can be used to improve mathematics teaching and learning. The book comprises a report of the meeting held in Strasbourg in March 1985, plus several papers contributed to that meeting
