Introduction to Lattices and Order
39,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ordered structures have been increasingly recognized in recent years due to an explosion of interest in theoretical computer science and all areas of discrete mathematics. This book covers areas such as ordered sets and lattices. A key feature of ordered sets, one which is emphasized in the text, is that they can be represented pictorially. Lattices are also considered as algebraic structures and hence a purely algebraic study is used to reinforce the ideas of homomorphisms and of ideals encountered in group theory and ring theory. Exposure to elementary abstract algebra and the rotation of set theory are the only prerequisites for this text. For the new edition, much has been rewritten or expanded and new exercises have been added.

Introduction to Reliable and Secure Distributed...
58,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In modern computing a program is usually distributed among several processes. The fundamental challenge when developing reliable and secure distributed programs is to support the cooperation of processes required to execute a common task, even when some of these processes fail. Failures may range from crashes to adversarial attacks by malicious processes.Cachin, Guerraoui, and Rodrigues present an introductory description of fundamental distributed programming abstractions together with algorithms to implement them in distributed systems, where processes are subject to crashes and malicious attacks. The authors follow an incremental approach by first introducing basic abstractions in simple distributed environments, before moving to more sophisticated abstractions and more challenging environments. Each core chapter is devoted to one topic, covering reliable broadcast, shared memory, consensus, and extensions of consensus. For every topic, many exercises and their solutions enhance the understanding This book represents the second edition of ´´Introduction to Reliable Distributed Programming´´. Its scope has been extended to include security against malicious actions by non-cooperating processes. This important domain has become widely known under the name ´´Byzantine fault-tolerance´´.

JavaScript Testing with Jasmine
14,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Get a concise introduction to Jasmine, the popular behavior-driven testing framework for JavaScript. This practical guide shows you how to write unit tests with Jasmine that automatically check for bugs in your application. If you have JavaScript experience?with knowledge of some advanced features?you?ll learn how to write specifications for individual components, and then use those specs to test the code you write. Throughout the book, author Evan Hahn focuses primarily on methods for testing browser-based JavaScript applications, but you?ll also discover how to use Jasmine with CoffeeScript, Node.js, Ruby on Rails, and Ruby without Rails. You won?t find a more in-depth source for Jasmine anywhere. * Get an overview of both test-driven and behavior-driven development * Write useful specs by determining what you need to test?and what you don?t * Test the behavior of new and existing code against the specs you create * Apply Jasmine matchers and discover how to build your own * Organize code suites into groups and subgroups as your code becomes more complex * Use a Jasmine spy in place of a function or an object?and learn why it?s valuable
