Android in Action, 9781617290503 (1617290505), Manning Publications, 2011

The idea of a writing a book about Android development can be somewhat futile at times, considering the pace at which Android continues to expand, morph, and change. What started out as a book project a few years ago has now become a series of updates to the original work with the page count nearly double the original project— and that after making hard decisions about what to leave out of the book to make sure it gets published.

This update to Android in Action represents our latest effort to provide coverage on important Android development topics, namely the expansion into the tablet space with Android 3.x as well as advances in mobile graphics and media such as RenderScript.

Although there have been many off-brand and name-brand tablet offerings popping up over time, the Android development team has taken the step of adding tabletspecific capabilities to the SDK under the banner of 3.0. True to form, 3.0 was quickly updated, so we generally refer to the tablet-specific features as 3.x; and before long I am sure Android 4.x will be out with a super-set of features.

Like many things in life, the only constant is change, but by now we’re somewhat accustomed to the rapid-fire environment of Android development. To that end, we have ensured that all of the applications in the book work with Android 3.x. The newest chapters covering tablet-specific content (20–22) require the 3.x SDK, whereas the remaining chapters are compatible with the 2.x SDK versions. If you plan to write application software for Android, you simply need to steel yourself for navigating the multiple version game. It is at once a strength and a challenge of the Android ecosystem.

Spatial AutoRegression (SAR) Model: Parameter Estimation Techniques (SpringerBriefs in Computer Science)
Spatial AutoRegression (SAR) Model: Parameter Estimation Techniques (SpringerBriefs in Computer Science)
Explosive growth in the size of spatial databases has highlighted the need for spatial data analysis and spatial data mining techniques to mine the interesting but implicit spatial patterns within these large databases. Extracting useful and interesting patterns from massive geo-spatial datasets is important for many application...

IEEE Recommended Practice for the Design of Reliable Industrial and Commercial Power Systems
The design of reliable industrial and commercial power systems is of considerable interest to many people. Prior to 1962, a qualitative viewpoint was taken when attempting to achieve this objective. The need for a quantitative approach was first recognized in the early 1960s when a small group of pioneers led by W. H. Dickinson...
Color Imaging: Fundamentals and Applications
Color Imaging: Fundamentals and Applications

Color is one of the most fascinating areas to study. Color forms an integral part of nature, and we humans are exposed to it every day. We all have an intuitive understanding of what color is, but by studying the underlying physics, chemistry, optics, and human visual perception, the true beauty and complexity of color can be...

Decompiling Java
WHEN COREL BOUGHT WordPerfect for almost $200 million from the Novell Corporation in the mid 1990s, nobody would have thought that in a matter of months they would have been giving away the source code free. However, when Corel ported WordPerfect to Java and released it as a beta product, a simple program called Mocha1 could...
