World War Two marked a turning-point in naval historical development. Since then, politics, the emergence of the 'bi-polar' world, and incredibly rapid technological change have combined with newly evolved or refined strategies to produce a wholly new naval situation as we enter the twenty-first century. The past fifty years have witnessed some remarkable changes in the naval world: big-gun warships have been discarded and then have come back into favour; and amphibious capabilities have grown in importance. But the most important single factor has been technology - missile development, electronics, communications, computers, metallurgy - all these things have had far-reaching effects. Sea power remains as vital to trading nations as it ever was. With two-thirds of the Earth's surface covered by water, the need has remained for a naval capacity both to defend oneself and maintain trade routes, as well as sustain prolonged overseas action. What has altered is the form that such a navy should take. This book traces these developments, in their evolutionary and revolutionary forms, with reference to all the nations that have contributed significantly to it. The author contributed significantly to it. The author traces the influence of doctrine and of combat experience during the last five decades to show how a process has been underway that is often fuelled by responses to the perceived threats posed by the prospective opponent rather than by the prospective opponent rather than by a rational assessment of naval needs. Here is a thoroughly absorbing and thoughtful analysis, enhanced by the resurrection of historical theories often derided in the nuclear age. Professional naval officers, defence analysts, and informed civilians will all benefit from this clear explanation of post-war naval evolution. They will then be better placed to observe, and participate in, the debate on the future use of naval power. -- from dust cover
The correctness-by-construction approach to programming by Derrick Kourie( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this book is on bridging the gap between two extreme methods for developing software. On the one hand, there are texts and approaches that are so formal that they scare off all but the most dedicated theoretical computer scientists. On the other, there are some who believe that any measure of formality is a waste of time, resulting in software that is developed by following gut feelings and intuitions. Kourie and Watson advocate an approach known as correctness-by-construction, a technique to derive algorithms that relies on formal theory, but that requires such theory to be deployed in a very systematic and pragmatic way. First they provide the key theoretical background (like first-order predicate logic or refinement laws) that is needed to understand and apply the method. They then detail a series of graded examples ranging from binary search to lattice cover graph construction and finite automata minimization in order to show how it can be applied to increasingly complex algorithmic problems. The principal purpose of this book is to change the way software developers approach their task at programming-in-the-small level, with a view to improving code quality. Thus it coheres with both the IEEE's Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK) recommendations, which identifies themes covered in this book as part of the software engineer's arsenal of tools and methods, and with the goals of the Software Engineering Method and Theory (SEMAT) initiative, which aims to refound software engineering based on a solid theory
