ZooKeeper: Distributed Process Coordination
ZooKeeper: Distributed Process Coordination

Building distributed applications is difficult enough without having to coordinate the actions that make them work. This practical guide shows how Apache ZooKeeper helps you manage distributed systems, so you can focus mainly on application logic. Even with ZooKeeper, implementing coordination tasks is not trivial, but this...

A Structural Account of Mathematics
A Structural Account of Mathematics
Charles Chihara's new book develops and defends a structural view of the nature of mathematics, and uses it to explain a number of striking features of mathematics that have puzzled philosophers for centuries. The view is used to show that, in order to understand how mathematical systems are applied in science and everyday life, it is not necessary...
Seismic Amplitude Inversion in Reflection Tomography
Seismic Amplitude Inversion in Reflection Tomography

This is the first book of its kind on seismic amplitude inversion in the context of reflection tomography. The aim of the monograph is to advocate the use of ray-amplitude data, separately or jointly with traveltime data, in reflection seismic tomography.

The emphasis of seismic exploration is on imaging techniques, so that

Pattern Recognition with Neural Networks in C++
Pattern Recognition with Neural Networks in C++

Why do we feel a need to write a book about pattern recognition when many excellent books are already available on this classical topic? The answer lies in the depth of our coverage of neural networks as natural pattern classifiers and clusterers. Artificial neural network computing has emerged as an extremely active research area with a central...
