Interactivity--the unique feature that sets games apart from other forms of entertainment. The power of interactivity lies in the programming that occurs behind the scenes. If you’re ready to jump into the world of programming for games, Beginning C++ Game Programming will get you started on your journey, providing you with a solid foundation in the game programming language of the professionals. As you cover each programming concept, you’ll create small games that demonstrate your new skills. Wrap things up by combining each major concept to create an ambitious multiple player game. Get ready to master the basics of game programming with C++!
Get ready to explore:
- The fundamentals of C++
- A standard game template library
- Generating random numbers to ad unpredictability to your games
- Object-oriented programming
- The game loop
Analysis of Piezoelectric Devices
This is the most systematic, comprehensive and up-to-date book on the theoretical analysis of piezoelectric devices. It is a natural continuation of the author s two previous books: An Introduction to the Theory of Piezoelectricity (Springer, 2005) and The Mechanics of Piezoelectric Structures (World Scientific, 2006). Based on the linear,...

Conjugation Reactions In Drug Metabolism: An Integrated Approach ‘The conjugations may well be the most important drug biotransformation reactions.’ Thus reads the first sentence in Chapter 1 of this book; and indeed, this may be little realized, if one compares the overwhelming attention paid to cytochrome P-450-mediated biotransformation with what is published on the conjugations. Yet, oxidative...
Java Development with Ant This book is about Ant, the award-winning Java build tool. Ant has become the centerpiece of so many projects’ build processes because it is easy to use, is platform independent, and addresses the needs of today’s projects to automate testing and deployment. From its beginnings as a helper application to compile Tomcat, Sun’s (now...
