Traditional magic squares employ a chessboard-like arrangement of numbers in which the total of all rows, columns, and diagonals add up to the same number. This innovative approach by a Dutch engineer challenges puzzlists to think two dimensionally by replacing numbers with colorful geometric shapes. Dozens of creative puzzles, suitable for ages 12 and up.

Written by a composer and a musician, The Contemporary Violin offers a unique menu of avant-garde musical possibilities that both performers and composers will enjoy exploring. Allen and Patricia Strange's comprehensive study critically examines extended performance techniques found in the violin literature of the latter half of the twentieth century. Drawing from both published and private manuscripts, the authors present extended performance options for the acoustic, modified, electric, and MIDI violin, with signal processing and computer-related techniques, and include more than 400 notated examples. The authors begin with bowing techniques and proceed systematically through other aspects of string playing, including MIDI technologies. Their correspondence and research with many performers and composers, the book's extensive score and text bibliography, and the discography of more than 130 recordings make The Contemporary Violin a valuable contemporary music reference and guide. An additional benefit is its listing of Internet resources that will keep the reader up to date with recent developments in contemporary performance and composition. First published by UC Press, 2001.

Summary Concurrency in .NET teaches you how to build concurrent and scalable programs in .NET using the functional paradigm. This intermediate-level guide is aimed at developers, architects, and passionate computer programmers who are interested in writing code with improved speed and effectiveness by adopting a declarative and pain-free programming style. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications. About the Technology Unlock the incredible performance built into your multi-processor machines. Concurrent applications run faster because they spread work across processor cores, performing several tasks at the same time. Modern tools and techniques on the .NET platform, including parallel LINQ, functional programming, asynchronous programming, and the Task Parallel Library, offer powerful alternatives to traditional thread-based concurrency. About the Book Concurrency in .NET teaches you to write code that delivers the speed you need for performance-sensitive applications. Featuring examples in both C# and F#, this book guides you through concurrent and parallel designs that emphasize functional programming in theory and practice. You'll start with the foundations of concurrency and master essential techniques and design practices to optimize code running on modern multiprocessor systems. What's Inside The most important concurrency abstractions Employing the agent programming model Implementing real-time event-stream processing Executing unbounded asynchronous operations Best concurrent practices and patterns that apply to all platforms About the Reader For readers skilled with C# or F#. About the Book Riccardo Terrell is a seasoned software engineer and Microsoft MVP who is passionate about functional programming. He has over 20 years' experience delivering cost-effective technology solutions in a competitive business environment. Table of Contents PART 1 - Benefits of functional programming applicable to concurrent programs Functional concurrency foundations Functional programming techniques for concurrency Functional data structures and immutability PART 2 - How to approach the different parts of a concurrent program The basics of processing big data: data parallelism, part 1 PLINQ and MapReduce: data parallelism, part 2 Real-time event streams: functional reactive programming Task-based functional parallelism Task asynchronicity for the win Asynchronous functional programming in F# Functional combinators for fluent concurrent programming Applying reactive programming everywhere with agents Parallel workflow and agent programming with TPL Dataflow PART 3 - Modern patterns of concurrent programming applied Recipes and design patterns for successful concurrent programming Building a scalable mobile app with concurrent functional programming

DASFAA is an annual international database conference, located in the Asia- Paci?cregion,whichshowcasesstate-of-the-artR & Dactivities in databases- tems and their applications. It provides a forum for technical presentations and discussions among database researchers, developers and users from academia, business and industry. DASFAA 2009, the 14th in the series, was held during April 20-23, 2009 in Brisbane, Australia. In this year, we carefully selected six workshops, each focusing on speci?c research issues that contribute to the main themes of the DASFAA conference. Thisvolumecontainsthe?nalversionsofpapersacceptedforthesesixworkshops that were held in conjunction with DASFAA 2009. They are: – First International Workshop on Benchmarking of XML and Semantic Web Applications (BenchmarX 2009) – Second International Workshop on Managing Data Quality in Collaborative Information Systems (MCIS 2009) – First International Workshop on Data and Process Provenance (WDPP 2009) – First International Workshop on Privacy-Preserving Data Analysis (PPDA 2009) – FirstInternationalWorkshoponMobileBusinessCollaboration(MBC2009) – DASFAA 2009 PhD Workshop All the workshops were selected via a public call-for-proposals process. The workshop organizers put a tremendous amount of e?ort into soliciting and - lecting papers with a balance of high quality, new ideas and new applications. We asked all workshops to follow a rigid paper selection process, including the procedure to ensure that any Program Committee members are excluded from the paper review process of any paper they are involved with. A requirement about the overall paper acceptance rate of no more than 50% was also imposed on all the workshops.
