Triangulations, and more precisely meshes, are at the heart of many problems relating to a wide variety of scientific disciplines, and in particular numerical simulations of all kinds of physical phenomena. In numerical simulations, the functional spaces of approximation used to search for solutions are defined from meshes, and in this sense these meshes play a fundamental role. This strong link between meshes and functional spaces leads us to consider advanced simulation methods in which the meshes are adapted to the behaviors of the underlying physical phenomena. This book presents the basic elements of this vision of meshing.
These mesh adaptations are generally governed by a posteriori error estimators representing an increase of the error with respect to a size or metric. Independently of this metric of calculation, compliance with a geometry can also be calculated using a so-called geometric metric. The notion of mesh thus finds its meaning in the metric of its elements.
Advanced Spectrum Machine Language This book is a collection of ready-made machine language routines that show how to achieve spectacular effects on the Spectrum. Most of the routines are aimed at creating visual displays that are at the frontiers of Spectrum's capabilities. The routines include features that have never been published before, such as:
• Full Screen...

A first-of-its-kind, this resource helps you decide which are the most promising technologies to use for specific mobile communication applications. Scenarios indicate how new applications will be developed and how to implement them....
Pro PHP XML and Web Services XML and its associated technologies have been around for many years. Although some support has been available, it has not always been easy to work with XML using PHP. This all changed with the release of PHP 5. The inclusion of a variety of XML processors provides a developer with an arsenal of tools to tackle virtually any type of challenge... Brain, Mind and Medicine: Essays in Eighteenth-Century Neuroscience
The idea for a volume on eighteenth-century studies
of brain and behavior originated during a joint
International Society for the History of the
Neurosciences (ISHN) and Theoretical and
Expérimentale et Théorique (TENNET) symposium
held in Montreal in June... Apache CXF Web Service Development Apache CXF is an open source services framework that makes web service development easy, simplified, and standard based. CXF provides many features such as frontend programming, support for different transports and data bindings, support for different protocols, and other advanced concepts like Features and Invokers. It also provides a programming...
