The book introduces a hot topic of novel and emerging computing paradigms and architectures -computation by travelling waves in reaction-diffusion media. A reaction-diffusion computer is a massively parallel computing device, where the micro-volumes of the chemical medium act as elementary few-bit processors, and chemical species diffuse and react in parallel. In the reaction-diffusion computer both the data and the results of the computation are encoded as concentration profiles of the reagents, or local disturbances of concentrations, whilst the computation per se is performed via the spreading and interaction of waves caused by the local disturbances. The monograph brings together results of a decade-long study into designing experimental and simulated prototypes of reaction-diffusion computing devices for image processing, path planning, robot navigation, computational geometry, logics and artificial intelligence. The book is unique because it gives a comprehensive presentation...

When Computers Were Human Offers an introduction to the world of women and men who did the hard computational labor of science. This book tells us about the surveyors of the French Revolution, describes the calculating machines of Charles Babbage, and guides readers through the Great Depression to marvel at the giant computing room of the Works Progress Administration.

When software systems are delivered too late, when they fail to meet the needs of their users, when their maintenance costs more than their development, when changes are impossible - then there is a search for new and better engineering techniques and tools. This book advocates a different approach to these problems: pausing and reflection.

...straight 'one subject' courses, which the majority of students undertake for their degree. The different flavours are as follows:
Computer Science and Software Engineering
Computer Science and Software Engineering with Business Studies
Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence
The two main, and most popular, blends are Computer Science/Software Engineering (CSSE) and Compu...
Advantages: Some funny moments Disadvantages: Bit limited.
...and with the imminent return home from military school of his bullying older brother Chet the two decide to perform an experiment to create the perfect girlfriend using their computers. When a power surge sends things haywire they are confronted by their own creation Lisa, played by Kelly Le Broc, as the super sexy creation whose powers will change their lives.
This is a very eighties film and it does have its...
Advantages: well made, durable, less expensive than some Disadvantages: boring colours, grumpy face!
...My son has a Thomas the Tank Engine Take & Play set that we are gradually building up over time. We buy him parts of the track for Christmas and for birthdays and we collect the trains here and there for small treats or with pocket money. One of the trains that we picked up as it was in Asda quite cheap (at around £4) was this Diesel engine. The Take & Play set is recommended for children aged...
