Castles and Fortified Cities of Medieval Europe: An Illustrated History

Buy

During the Middle Ages, castles and other fortified buildings were a common feature of the European landscape. As central powers rose and fell, the insecurity of the time inspired a revival of fortification techniques first introduced in the Roman Empire. Despite limitations in construction techniques and manpower, medieval fortifications were continuously adapted to meet new political circumstances and weapons technology. Here is an illustrated guide to the architecture of medieval fortifications, from the first castles to the fortified cities of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. In hundreds of detailed and thoroughly researched pen-and-ink drawings, artist Jean-Denis G.G. Lepage introduces the reader to a heterogeneous group of buildings whose unique characteristics show the development and diversity of European medieval military architecture. Each drawing is accompanied by detailed text describing types of buildings (e.g., moat-and-bailey castles), built-in defenses (arrow splits, pepper-pot towers), and particular castles and cities (the Mont-Saint-Michel, the city of Jerusalem). Elements of medieval warfare and weaponry are also covered in drawings and text

Modern Fortran in Practice
Modern Fortran in Practice

I have been programming in Fortran for more than 25 years, first in FORTRAN IV and somewhat later in FORTRAN 77. In the last decade of the 20th century, I attended, together with a number of colleagues, a course on Fortran 90, given by the late Jan vanOosterwijk at the Technical University ofDelft. It was also around this time that I came to...

Early Software Reliability Prediction: A Fuzzy Logic Approach (Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing)
Early Software Reliability Prediction: A Fuzzy Logic Approach (Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing)

The development of software system with acceptable level of reliability and quality within available time frame and budget becomes a challenging objective. This objective could be achieved to some extent through early prediction of number of faults present in the software, which reduces the cost of development as it provides an opportunity to...
