NEW - With a broadened scope and more emphasis on applied computing, and more than 70 chapters either new or significantly revised, this book is exactly the kind of reference today's computer scientists, software engineers, and IT professionals need. All of the material found in the first edition is now up to date and augmented by a wealth of additional coverage. The discussions now reflect the explosive growth of the internet, the increasing importance of subjects like massively parallel computation and the key issues at the intersection of the technology and the people it impacts. This rich collection of theory and practice fully characterizes the current state of the field and conveys the modern spirit, accomplishments, and direction of computer science. Each of eleven sections has separately numbered subsections. Included is an index and appendices. There is no cumulative numbering, but it must be over one thousand pages. Very heavy, the cover is laminated. Includes diagrams, black and white and color photos. 7 1/4" x 10 1/4; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
