Computer architecture : a minimalist perspective by William F Gilreath( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The one instruction set computer (OISC) is the ultimate reduced instruction set computer (RISC). In OISC, the instruction set consists of only one instruction, and then by composition, all other necessary instructions are synthesized. This is an approach completely opposite to that of a complex instruction set computer (CISC), which incorporates complex instructions as microprograms within the processor. Computer Architecture: A Minimalist Perspective examines computer architecture, computability theory, and the history of computers from the perspective of one instruction set computing---a novel approach in which the computer supports only one, simple instruction. This bold, new paradigm offers significant promise in biological, chemical, optical, and molecular scale computers. Features include: Provides a comprehensive study of computer architecture using computability theory as a base · Provides a fresh perspective on computer architecture not found in any other text · Covers history, theory, and practice of computer architecture from a minimalist perspective · Includes a complete implementation of a one instruction computer · Includes exercises and programming assignments. Computer Architecture: A Minimalist Perspective is designed to meet the needs of a professional audience composed of researchers, computer hardware engineers, software engineers computational theorists, and systems engineers The book is also intended for use in upper division undergraduate students and early graduate students studying computer architecture or embedded systems. It is an excellent text for use as a supplement or alternative in traditional computer architecture courses, or in courses entitle "Special Topics in Computer Architecture."

Software engineering for image processing systems by Phillip A Laplante( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This overview creates a modern engineering framework for the specification, design, coding, testing, and maintenance of image processing software and systems. The text is designed to benefit not only software engineers, but also the many workers with backgrounds in mathematics, the physical sciences, or other engineering disciplines, who find themselves working on a software project team. The author classifies imaging software as its own distinct caste, thereby providing a common language and framework for imaging engineers of all backgrounds. This common framework could, in turn, lead to more
Requirements engineering for software and systems by Phillip A Laplante( Book )

"Solid requirements engineering has increasingly been recognized as the key to improved, on-time and on-budget delivery of software and systems projects. This book provides practical teaching for graduate and professional systems and software engineers. It uses extensive case studies and exercises to help students grasp concepts and techniques. With a focus on software-intensive systems, this text provides a probing and comprehensive review of recent developments in intelligent systems, soft computing techniques, and their diverse applications in manufacturing. The second edition contains 100% revised content and approximately 30% new material"--
What every engineer should know about software engineering by Phillip A Laplante( Book )

16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In What Every Engineer Should Know about Software Engineering, Phillip A. Laplante introduces the profession of software engineering along with a practical approach to understanding, designing, and building sound software based on solid principles. Using a unique question-and-answer format, this book addresses the issues and misperceptions that engineers need to understand in order to successfully work with software engineers, develop specifications for quality software, and learn the basics of the most common programming languages, development approaches, and paradigms."--Jacket
Real-time systems design and analysis : an engineer's handbook by Phillip A Laplante( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book contains a pragmatic overview of key topics (computer architecture and organization, operating systems, software engineering, programming languages, and compiler theory) from the perspective of the real-time systems designer. The book is organized into chapters that are essentially self-contained. Thus, the material can be rearranged or omitted depending on the background and interests of the audience or instructor. Each chapter contains both easy and more challenging exercises that stimulate the reader to confront actual problems"--

AntiPatterns : identification, refactoring, and management by Phillip A Laplante( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antipatterns are conventional problem-solution pairs in software engineering that do more harm than good, and three general types were identified by Brown and colleagues in their groundbreaking Antipatterns (1998): architectural, design, and management. Laplante and Neill (both software engineering, Pennsylvania State U.) offer information-technolo
Antipatterns : managing software organizations and people by Colin J Neill( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Preface In troubled organizations, a frequent obstacle to success is accurate problem identification. When problems are incorrectly diagnosed by management or by the consultants they hire, then correction of the problem is rarely possible. Conversely, when problems are correctly identified, they can almost always be dealt with appropriately. Unfortunately, organizational inertia frequently clouds the situation or makes it easier to do the wrong thing rather than the right thing. So how can one know what the right thing is if one has the problem wrong? This is where antipatterns can be helpful. Shortly after the emergence of patterns*, practitioners began discussing problem- solution pairs in which the conventional solution does more harm than good, known as "antipatterns." In their groundbreaking work, AntiPatterns, Brown, Malveaux, McCormick, and Mowbray (1998) described a taxonomy of problems that can occur in software engineering. They also described solutions or refactorings for these situations. The benefit of providing such a taxonomy is that it assists in the rapid and correct identification of problem situations, provides a playbook for addressing the problems, and provides some relief to the participants who can take consolation in the fact that they are not alone. Brown et al. organized their antipatterns into three general types: (1) architectural, (2) design, and (3) management. The architectural patterns describe bad practices that lead to unacceptable software architectures (for example, "Kitchen Sink"). The design antipatterns do the same for design (everyone knows about "Design by Committee"). The management antipatterns generally describe dysfunctional behavior of individual managers, or pervasive management practices that inhibit success"--
