"drawings by Duane Bibby" foreword and afterword by Guy L. Steele Jr. "I learned more about LISP from this book than I have from any of the other LISP books I've read over the years. . . . While other books will tell you the mechanics of LISP, they can leave you largely uninformed on the style of problem-solving for which LISP is optimized. The Little LISPer teaches you how to think in the LISP language. . . an inexpensive, enjoyable introduction." -- Gregg Williams, Byte The notion that "thinking about computing is one of the most exciting things the human mind can do" sets both "The Little Schemer" (formerly known as "The Little LISPer" ) and its new companion volume, "The Seasoned Schemer," apart from other books on LISP. The authors' enthusiasm for their subject is compelling as they present abstract concepts in a humorous and easy-to-grasp fashion. Together, these books will open new doors of thought to anyone who wants to find out what computing is really about. "The Little Schemer" introduces computing as an extension of arithmetic and algebra -- things that everyone studies in grade school and high school. It introduces programs as recursive functions and briefly discusses the limits of what computers can do. The authors use the programming language Scheme, and interesting foods to illustrate these abstract ideas. "The Seasoned Schemer" informs the reader about additional dimensions of computing: functions as values, change of state, and exceptional cases. "The Little LISPer" has been a popular introduction to LISP for many years. It had appeared in French and Japanese. "The Little Schemer" and"The Seasoned Schemer" are worthy successors and will prove equally popular as textbooks for Scheme courses as well as companion texts for any complete introductory course in Computer Science.

A++ ist eine Programmiersprache, die an Minimalismus nicht zu übertreffen ist. Ihr einziger Zweck ist es, an der Programmierung Interessierten zu helfen, so schnell und effizient wie nur möglich das Wesentliche der Programmierung zu erfassen. In verhältnismäßig kurzer Zeit werden Denkmuster eingeübt, die einen befähigen, sich müheloser in die großen populären Programmiersprachen einzuarbeiten, um in ihnen produktiv werden zu können. In diesem Buch wird eine Erweiterung von A++ vorgestellt, die einer neuen Programmiersprache entspricht (mit Compiler und virtueller Maschine) in der die Funktionalität von Scheme, Python, Java, C++ und C enthalten ist. Dies ist möglich, da in ARS++ eine Schnittstelle zu den anderen Sprachen namens ARSAPI eingebaut ist. Nicht nur ein A++-Interpreter wird zur Verfügung gestellt, sondern auch ein ARS++-Compiler und ein Interpreter für die virtuelle Maschine (AVIM). Auch dieses Buch enthält im Anhang eine Einführung in das Lambda-Kalkül von Alonzo Church. Das Buch wendet sich an alle Personen, die sich mit dem Erlernen der Kunst der Programmierung befassen. Dies sind vor allem Lehrende und Lernende an Hochschulen und den Oberstufen von Gymnasien in den Fachbereichen der Informatik, der Mathematik und der Physik.

Programmierparadigmen

Im Verlaufe ihres Berufslebens müssen sich Informatiker immer wieder in neue Programmier- und Fachsprachen einarbeiten. Der Erfolg dieses fortwährenden Lernprozesses wird zu einem erheblichen Maß durch den Stand des Wissens über Programmierstile und damit verbundene Denkformen bestimmt. Paradigmenwissen ist also von besonderer Bedeutung und muss frühzeitig im Studium verankert werden. Das vorliegende Buch verwendet für die Vermittlung dieses Wissens einen völlig neuen didaktischen Ansatz: Es wird nur eine einzige Sprache benutzt, in der sämtliche Paradigmen ausgedrückt und weitere Grundkonzepte der Programmierung thematisiert werden können. Dieses einführende Lehrbuch ist besonders für Informatik-Studierende der ersten Semester an Fachhochschulen, Universitäten und Berufsakademien geeignet. Es kann ebenso in Fortbildungskursen und an Schulen Verwendung finden.

The goal of The Reasoned Schemer is to help the functional programmer think logically and the logic programmer think functionally. The authors of The Reasoned Schemer believe that logic programming is a natural extension of functional programming, and they demonstrate this by extending the functional language Scheme with logical constructs -- thereby combining the benefits of both styles. The extension encapsulates most of the ideas in the logic programming language Prolog. The pedagogical method of The Reasoned Schemer is a series of questions and answers, which proceed with the characteristic humor that marked The Little Schemer and The Seasoned Schemer. Familiarity with a functional language or with the first eight chapters of The Little Schemer is assumed. Adding logic capabilities required the introduction of new forms. The authors' goal is to show to what extent writing logic programs is the same as writing functional programs using these forms. In this way, the reader of The Reasoned Schemer will come to understand how simple logic programming is and how easy it is to define functions that behave like relations.

Der beispiellose Absturz eines Start-up-Wunderkinds Elizabeth Holmes, Gründerin und CEO von Theranos, galt schnell als der weibliche Steve Jobs. Die Firma der 19-jährigen Blondine versprach, die Medizinindustrie mit einer Technologie zu revolutionieren, die Bluttests vereinfachen und Therapien gezielt steuern würde – eine Riesenhoffnung für Millionen von Menschen. Larry Ellison, Rupert Murdoch und andere Investoren steckten Unsummen in das Start-up, bis es mit neun Milliarden Dollar am Markt kapitalisiert war. Es gab nur ein einziges Problem: Die Technologie hinter den schicken Apparaturen hat nie funktioniert. Pulitzer-Preisträger John Carreyrou erzählt die packende Geschichte dieses Betrugs und seiner Enthüllung.

foreword by Ralph E. Johnson and drawings by Duane Bibby 'This is a book of 'why' not 'how.' If you are interested in the nature of computation and curious about the very idea behind object orientation, this book is for you. This book will engage your brain (if not your tummy). Through its sparkling interactive style, you will learn about three essential OO concepts: interfaces, visitors, and factories. A refreshing change from the 'yet another Java book' phenomenon. Every serious Java programmer should own a copy.' -- Gary McGraw, Ph.D., Research Scientist at Reliable Software Technologies and coauthor of Java Security Java is a new object-oriented programming language that was developed by Sun Microsystems for programming the Internet and intelligent appliances. In a very short time it has become one of the most widely used programming languages for education as well as commercial applications. Design patterns, which have moved object-oriented programming to a new level, provide programmers with a language to communicate with others about their designs. As a result, programs become more readable, more reusable, and more easily extensible. In this book, Matthias Felleisen and Daniel Friedman use a small subset of Java to introduce pattern-directed program design. With their usual clarity and flair, they gently guide readers through the fundamentals of object-oriented programming and pattern-based design. Readers new to programming, as well as those with some background, will enjoy their learning experience as they work their way through Felleisen and Friedman's dialogue. src='/graphics/yellowball.gif' href='/books/FELTP/Java-fm.html'Foreword and Preface
