Deterministic Network Calculus Book Review:

Deterministic network calculus is a theory based on the (min,plus) algebra. Its aim is to compute worst-case performance bounds in communication networks. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive view of this theory and its recent advances, from its theoretical foundations to its implementations. The book is divided into three parts. The first part focuses on the (min,plus) framework and its algorithmic aspects. The second part defines the network calculus model and analyzes one server in isolation. Different service and scheduling policies are discussed, particularly when data is packetized. The third part is about network analyses. Pay burst only once and pay multiplexing only once phenomena are exhibited, and different analyses are proposed and compared. This includes the linear programming approaches that compute tight performance bounds. Finally, some partial results on the stability are detailed.

Human Development A Life Span View Book Review:

Balanced coverage of the entire life span is just one thing that distinguishes HUMAN DEVELOPMENT: A LIFE-SPAN VIEW, Seventh Edition. With its comprehensive, succinct, and applied coverage, the text has proven its ability to capture students' interest while introducing them to the issues, forces, and outcomes that make us who we are. Robert V. Kail's expertise in childhood and adolescence, combined with John C. Cavanaugh's extensive research in gerontology, result in a book with a rich description of all life-span stages and important topics. A modified chronological approach traces development in sequential order from conception through late life, while also dedicating several chapters to key topical issues. This organization also allows the book to be relatively briefer than other texts, a benefit given the enormous amount of information covered in the course. The authors provide theoretical and empirical foundations that enable students to become educated, critical interpreters of developmental information. A blend of basic and applied research, as well as coverage of controversial topics and emergent trends, demonstrates connections between the laboratory and life.

Understanding the Linux Kernel Book Review:

To thoroughly understand what makes Linux tick and why it's so efficient, you need to delve deep into the heart of the operating system--into the Linux kernel itself. The kernel is Linux--in the case of the Linux operating system, it's the only bit of software to which the term "Linux" applies. The kernel handles all the requests or completed I/O operations and determines which programs will share its processing time, and in what order. Responsible for the sophisticated memory management of the whole system, the Linux kernel is the force behind the legendary Linux efficiency. The new edition of Understanding the Linux Kernel takes you on a guided tour through the most significant data structures, many algorithms, and programming tricks used in the kernel. Probing beyond the superficial features, the authors offer valuable insights to people who want to know how things really work inside their machine. Relevant segments of code are dissected and discussed line by line. The book covers more than just the functioning of the code, it explains the theoretical underpinnings for why Linux does things the way it does. The new edition of the book has been updated to cover version 2.4 of the kernel, which is quite different from version 2.2: the virtual memory system is entirely new, support for multiprocessor systems is improved, and whole new classes of hardware devices have been added. The authors explore each new feature in detail. Other topics in the book include: Memory management including file buffering, process swapping, and Direct memory Access (DMA) The Virtual Filesystem and the Second Extended Filesystem Process creation and scheduling Signals, interrupts, and the essential interfaces to device drivers Timing Synchronization in the kernel Interprocess Communication (IPC) Program execution Understanding the Linux Kernel, Second Edition will acquaint you with all the inner workings of Linux, but is more than just an academic exercise. You'll learn what conditions bring out Linux's best performance, and you'll see how it meets the challenge of providing good system response during process scheduling, file access, and memory management in a wide variety of environments. If knowledge is power, then this book will help you make the most of your Linux system.

The Life Span Book Review:

The Life Span: Human Development for Helping Professionals, 4/e, provides an in-depth look at the science of human development, highlighting theories and research that have useful applications for individuals working in fields such as education, counseling, and social work. The main purpose of this book is to provide the reader with information that can be translated into professional “best practice” applications. Throughout, the text reflects the contemporary view that life span development is a process deeply embedded within and inseparable from the context of family, social network, and culture. Because the book is designed for graduate students, most topics, especially those that have special relevance to helping professionals, are covered in greater depth than in a typical life span text. The expanded coverage of research in these areas will enhance students' understanding of the scientific basis for application to practice. From reviews of the book: “This book is unique in that it is research-based, includes comprehensive coverage of important course topics, and offers helping professionals information about human development that will enhance service provision to clients across the lifespan.” --Mary M. Chittooran, Saint Louis University “The writing style is clear, interesting and engaging and is at a level appropriate for my students. Nicely done. . . . [The] case studies [and] developmental psychopathology sections are strengths. . . . [The book is] well organized, well-written, broad-based . . ., [and] insightful. [I] especially liked the authors' focus on practical and applied therapies, as well as their emphasis on research-based therapies that incorporate sound principles of human developmental.” --Rosalie A. Rohm, Ball State University “This readable, well organized text addresses the depth and scope of development. The text extends students knowledge of the material by providing a wealth of applicable information for those who are or will be in a helping profession. . . . [Compared to other available texts, this one is] far superior in terms of the balance of scope and depth.” --Kathryn Cooper, Northern Colorado University New Interactive, Multimedia Learning Features in the Video-Enhanced Pearson eText: o See real examples. Embedded videos illustrate and explain key concepts and show individuals addressing the challenges of that period of the life span. (See pages 334, 342, and 353 for examples.) o Practice applying chapter content. The Practice Using What You've Learned feature includes scaffolded video and print case exercises that challenge readers to analyze and apply chapter content. Sample responses are available through the enhanced text. (See page 366 for examples.) See how to work with people at different stages of the lifespan. Applications sections blend empirically supported information about treatments with the issues covered in each chapter, offering extensive discussion of how developmental science can inform practice. These include topics such as adolescent health and well-being, new approaches to maternity care, new interventions for promoting secure infant attachments, encouraging learning through play, helping parents avoid corporal punishment, and mindfulness-based practices, among many others. (See 357-360 for an example.)
