  • De nationalité allemande, Fritz Kahn (1888-1968) était médecin, pédagogue, auteur de vulgarisation scientifique et un pionnier de l'infographie. Chassé d'Allemagne par les Nazis, qui interdirent et brûlèrent ses livres, Kahn émigra en Palestine, puis en France, avant de s'installer aux États-Unis pour poursuivre l'oeuvre de sa vie.

    Dans cette édition révisée de la collection Bibliotheca Universalis, TASCHEN célèbre le génie créatif de Kahn, particulièrement doué pour mettre en image des concepts scientifiques complexes. Des oeuvres comme Man as Industrial Palace montrent comment Kahn a déployé des métaphores visuelles percutantes pour démystifier la science et combien sa démarche a influencé des générations d'illustrateurs scientifiques, de spécialistes de la communication visuelle et d'infographistes jusqu'à aujourd'hui.

    Le livre présente plus de 350 illustrations accompagnées d'importantes légendes, trois textes originaux de Fritz Kahn, un avant-propos de Steven Heller et un essai sur la vie et l'oeuvre de Kahn.

  • Cet ouvrage constitue l'outil indispensable des étudiants en Master et des élèves des écoles d'ingénieur qui désirent connaître les principales techniques de traitement numérique du signal. Celles-ci offrent aujourd'hui de nombreuses possibilités : conception rigoureuse des systèmes, reproductibilité aisée des équipements, fiabilité des caractéristiques exploitées et facilité de supervision. Cependant, ces techniques présentent un certain degré d'abstraction. Cet ouvrage permet de faciliter l'accès aux techniques numériques en reliant la théorie à la pratique.
    Cette 9e édition entièrement révisée actualise les données et précise l'analyse et la modélisation des signaux qui s'intègrent de plus en plus dans les systèmes. Des applications pratiques et des exercices corrigés sont proposés à la fin de chaque chapitre afin que le lecteur puisse valider de manière concrète ses acquis.

    Internet mail protocols have become not just an enabling technology for messaging, but a programming interface on top of which core applications are built. This book is an essential guide and reference for programmers building applications on top of email capabilities and for power users trying to get under the hood of their own email systems.

  • This CD-ROM contains the recordings (audio and slides) of a two days advanced course on "Traffic Control and QoS in IP Networks" given by Olivier Bonaventure in October 2000. The course was designed for network engineers from ISPs or router manufacturers. It assumes that the students already have a good knowledge of the TCP/IP protocol suite.
    It covers the following advanced topics :
    - Applications and their requirements - The TCP protocol and its congestion control mechanisms - Packet-level traffic control mechanisms (classification, queueing, shaping, policing, Random Early Detection, scheduling, Explicit Congestion Notification) - Flow-level traffic control mechanisms (RSVP, constrained routing) - Network-level traffic control mechanisms (policies, Common Open Policy Service, traffic engineering, fast restoration) - Standardised services (Integrated and Differentiated services) - Case studies The CD-ROM contains the audio recordings, the slides (in pdf and source format) and an extensive bibliography. It requires a web browser (Netscape/Internet Explorer) and the realaudio software that is freely available on the Internet. It has been tested on PCs running Windows 95/98/NT and requires a sound card.

  • C++ is a complex language with many subtle facets. This is especially true when it comes to object-oriented and template programming. The C++ Pocket Reference is a memory aid for C++ programmers, enabling them to quickly look up usage and syntax for unfamiliar and infrequently used aspects of the language. The book's small size makes it easy to carry about, ensuring that it will always be at-hand when needed. Programmers will also appreciate the book's brevity; as much information as possible has been crammed into its small pages.
    In the C++ Pocket Reference, you will find:
    Information on C++ types and type conversions Syntax for C++ statements and preprocessor directives Help declaring and defining classes, and managing inheritance Information on declarations, storage classes, arrays, pointers, strings, and expressions Refreshers on key concepts of C++ such as namespaces and scope More!
    C++ Pocket Reference is useful to Java and C programmers making the transition to C++, or who find themselves occasionally programming in C++. The three languages are often confusingly similar. This book enables programmers familiar with C or Java to quickly come up to speed on how a particular construct or concept is implemented in C++.
    Together with its companion STL Pocket Reference, the C++ Pocket Reference forms one of the most concise, easily-carried, quick-references to the C++ language available.

  • You're not alone.


    At any given moment, somewhere in the world someone struggles with the same software design problems you have. You know you don't want to reinvent the wheel (or worse, a flat tire), so you look to Design Patterns--the lessons learned by those who've faced the same problems. With Design Patterns, you get to take advantage of the best practices and experience of others, so that you can spend your time on...something else. Something more challenging. Something more complex. Something more fun.


    You want to learn about the patterns that matter--why to use them, when to use them, how to use them (and when NOT to use them). But you don't just want to see how patterns look in a book, you want to know how they look "in the wild". In their native environment. In other words, in real world applications. You also want to learn how patterns are used in the Java API, and how to exploit Java's built-in pattern support in your own code.


    You want to learn the real OO design principles and why everything your boss told you about inheritance might be wrong (and what to do instead). You want to learn how those principles will help the next time you're up a creek without a design pattern.


    Most importantly, you want to learn the "secret language" of Design Patterns so that you can hold your own with your co-worker (and impress cocktail party guests) when he casually mentions his stunningly clever use of Command, Facade, Proxy, and Factory in between sips of a martini. You'll easily counter with your deep understanding of why Singleton isn't as simple as it sounds, how the Factory is so often misunderstood, or on the real relationship between Decorator, Facade and Adapter.


    With Head First Design Patterns, you'll avoid the embarrassment of thinking Decorator is something from the "Trading Spaces" show. Best of all, in a way that won't put you to sleep! We think your time is too important (and too short) to spend it struggling with academic texts.


    If you've read a Head First book, you know what to expect--a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works. Using the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory, Head First Design Patterns will load patterns into your brain in a way that sticks. In a way that lets you put them to work immediately. In a way that makes you better at solving software design problems, and better at speaking the language of patterns with others on your team.

  • GNU Emacs is the most popular and widespread of the Emacs family of editors. It is also the most powerful and flexible. Unlike all other text editors, GNU Emacs is a complete working environment--you can stay within Emacs all day without leaving. Learning GNU Emacs, 3rd Edition tells readers how to get started with the GNU Emacs editor. It is a thorough guide that will also "grow" with you: as you become more proficient, this book will help you learn how to use Emacs more effectively. It takes you from basic Emacs usage (simple text editing) to moderately complicated customization and programming.
    The third edition of Learning GNU Emacs describes Emacs 21.3 from the ground up, including new user interface features such as an icon-based toolbar and an interactive interface to Emacs customization. A new chapter details how to install and run Emacs on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux, including tips for using Emacs effectively on those platforms.
    Learning GNU Emacs, third edition, covers:

    How to edit files with Emacs Using the operating system shell through Emacs How to use multiple buffers, windows, and frames Customizing Emacs interactively and through startup files Writing macros to circumvent repetitious tasks Emacs as a programming environment for Java, C++, and Perl, among others Using Emacs as an integrated development environment (IDE) Integrating Emacs with CVS, Subversion and other change control systems for projects with multiple developers Writing HTML, XHTML, and XML with Emacs The basics of Emacs Lisp The book is aimed at new Emacs users, whether or not they are programmers. Also useful for readers switching from other Emacs implementations to GNU Emacs.

  • Both Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg came to Google as seasoned Silicon Valley business executives, but over the course of a decade they came to see the wisdom in Coach John Wooden's observation that 'it's what you learn after you know it all that counts'. As they helped grow Google from a young start-up to a global icon, they relearned everything they knew about management. How Google Works is the sum of those experiences distilled into a fun, easy-to-read primer on corporate culture, strategy, talent, decision-making, communication, innovation, and dealing with disruption.

    The authors explain how the confluence of three seismic changes - the internet, mobile, and cloud computing - has shifted the balance of power from companies to consumers. The companies that will thrive in this ever-changing landscape will be the ones that create superior products and attract a new breed of multifaceted employees whom the authors dub 'smart creatives'. The management maxims ('Consensus requires dissension', 'Exile knaves but fight for divas', 'Think 10X, not 10%') are illustrated with previously unreported anecdotes from Google's corporate history.

    'Back in 2010, Eric and I created an internal class for Google managers,' says Rosenberg. 'The class slides all read 'Google confidential' until an employee suggested we uphold the spirit of openness and share them with the world. This book codifies the recipe for our secret sauce: how Google innovates and how it empowers employees to succeed.

  • L'auteur nous communique son enquête sur Apple et son fondateur Steve Jobs.
