From the simple applications that people use every day to specialized professional software, all computer programs are the result of hard work and creativity. Readers will find out how the members of a software development team work together to create todays top programs. They will also learn how the earliest computer software was created, where the field is headed in the future, and much more.
Many approaches have been proposed to enhance software productivity and reliability. These approaches typically fall into three categories: the engineering approach, the formal approach, and the knowledge-based approach. The optimal gain in software productivity cannot be obtained if one relies on only one of these approaches. Thus, the integration of different approaches has also become a major area of research.
Provides an innovative hands-on introduction to techniques for specifying the behaviour of software components. It is primarily intended for use as a text book for a course in the 2nd or 3rd year of Computer Science and Computer Engineering programs, but it is also suitable for self-study. Using this book will help the reader improve programming skills and gain a sound foundation and motivation for subsequent courses in advanced algorithms and data structures, software design, formal methods, compilers, programming languages, and theory. The presentation is based on numerous examples and case studies appropriate to the level of programming expertise of the intended readership. The main topics covered are techniques for using programmer-friendly assertional notations to specify, develop, and verify small but non-trivial algorithms and data representations, and the use of state diagrams, grammars, and regular expressions to specify and develop recognizers for formal languages.
Scientific Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Computer Science - Theory, grade: 1, course: Computer Science, language: English, abstract: The paper presents a prototype computer system that uses an algorithmic complexity program for storing and transmission of input data into like-natured subgroups from both random and non-random linear sequential strings. Finite and infinite state machines are used to test this computer system. This new computer system has the shortest list of operational commands known in computing.
Few software projects are completed on time, on budget, and to their original specifications. Focusing on what practitioners need to know about risk in the pursuit of delivering software projects, Applied Software Risk Management: A Guide for Software Project Managers covers key components of the risk management process and the software development process, as well as best practices for software risk identification, risk planning, and risk analysis.
