Measures of software internal attributes have been extensively used to help software managers, customers and users to characterize, assess and improve the quality of software products. The introduction of object-oriented (OO) software provides powerful design mechanisms with which to do this, and new technologies—e.g., OO frameworks, OO analysis/design patterns, OO architectures and OO components—that take advantage of these design mechanisms have been proposed in order to improve software engineering productivity and software quality. To better understand the impact of these technologies on products developed using them, the quality of these products must be assessed using software product measures.
This book gives a comprehensive description of four areas of quantitative approaches in object-oriented software engineering: metrics collection, quality assessment; metrics validation and process management.
Computer Networking Illuminated (Jones and Bartlett Illuminated) The study of computer networking concepts and administration is an essential part of the education of computer science and information science students. A basic networking course should provide a strong theoretical background, practice in network design and creation, and the experience of maintaining and managing a network. Having taught computer...

Computational Fluid Dynamics: Principles and Applications
The history of Computational Fluid Dynamics, or CFD for short,, started in
the early 1970’s. Around that time, it became an acronym for a combination
of physics, numerical mathematics, and, to some extent, computer sciences employed
to simulate fluid flows. The beginning of CFD was triggered by the
