Refactoring Workbook

Paperback: 224 pages
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional; 1st edition (August 22, 2003)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0321109295
ISBN-13: 978-0321109293

As a programmer, you need to be able to recognize and improve problematic code, so the program remains in a working state throughout the software lifecycle. Refactoring-the art of improving the design of existing code safely-provides an efficient, reliable system for bringing order to the chaos, and one that keeps the surprises to a minimum! Refactoring can be difficult to learn, but Refactoring Workbook, by consultant William C. Wake, presents the material in a easy-learning format that makes learning enjoyable and effective.

For many, the obstacle to learning refactoring is in identifying the “smells“—the potential problem areas-found in code. Instead of having you read about the smells, Refactoring Workbook makes sure you understand them. You’ll solve a carefully assembled series of problems, and you’ll find yourself learning at a deeper level and arriving at a few insights of your own. Wake uses the workbook method—a learning-focused approach that forces you to apply the techniques presented in the book-in the rest of the book. This approach helps you learn and apply the most important refactoring techniques to your code and, as a side benefit, helps you to think more about creating great code even when you’re not refactoring.

Refactoring Workbook provides user-friendly references such as:
  • A handy, quick-reference “smell finder”
  • A standard format for describing smells
  • Appendices showing key refactorings
  • A listing of Java™ tools that support refactoring
  • This book is intended for programmers with a knowledge of Java, though a C# or C++ programmer with a basic understanding of Java would also be able to follow and learn from the examples. It can be used as a companion to Martin Fowler’s Refactoring (also from Addison-Wesley Professional), which provides step-by-step instructions for many refactorings.

Creating Emotion in Games: The Craft and Art of Emotioneering

Paperback: 500 pages
Publisher: New Riders Games; 1st edition (September 15, 2003)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1592730078
ISBN-13: 978-1592730070

David Freeman brings you the inside scoop on how to apply the Emotioneering™ techniques he’s so well known for. These powerful techniques create a breadth and depth of emotion in a game, and induce a player to identify with the role he or she is playing. Mr. Freeman’s techniques are so highly sought after because they’re the key to mass market success in today’s competitive game market. The over 300 distinct Emotioneering techniques in this book include (to name but a few): ways to give emotional depth to an NPC (non-player character), even if the NPC has just one line of dialogue; techniques to bond a player to a game’s NPCs; and techniques to transform a game into an intense emotional journey. In a warm and crystal-clear style, Mr. Freeman provides examples which demonstrate exactly how to apply the techniques. He also shows how some of these techniques were utilized in, and contributed greatly to the success of such games as “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City”; “Deus Ex”; and “Thief” I & II, among others. The book is packed with striking art by some of today’s top concept artists and illustrators, including an eight-page color section and a four-color, fold-out cover. When you’ve finished this book, you’ll be equipped to apply Mr. Freeman’s powerful Emotioneering techniques to artfully create emotion in the games you design, build, or produce.

UML Distilled: A Brief Guide to the Standard Object Modeling Language

Paperback: 208 pages
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional; 3 edition (September 15, 2003)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0321193687
ISBN-13: 978-0321193681

The second edition of Martin Fowler’s bestselling UML Distilled provides updates to the Unified Modeling Language (UML) without changing its basic formula for success. It is still arguably the best resource for quick, no-nonsense explanations of using UML.
The major strength of UML Distilled is its short, concise presentation of the essentials of UML and where it fits within today’s software development process. The book describes all the major UML diagram types, what they’re for, and the basic notation involved in creating and deciphering them. These diagrams include use cases; class and interaction diagrams; collaborations; and state, activity, and physical diagrams. The examples are always clear, and the explanations cut to the fundamental design logic.

For the second edition, the material has been reworked for use cases and activity diagrams, plus there are numerous small tweaks throughout, including the latest UML v. 1.3 standard. An appendix even traces the evolution of UML versions.

Working developers often don’t have time to keep up with new innovations in software engineering. This new edition lets you get acquainted with some of the best thinking about efficient object-oriented software design using UML in a convenient format that will be essential to anyone who designs software professionally. —Richard Dragan

Topics covered: UML basics, analysis and design, outline development (software development process), inception, elaboration, managing risks, construction, transition, use case diagrams, class diagrams, interaction diagrams, collaborations, state diagrams, activity diagrams, physical diagrams, patterns, and refactoring basics. —This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Hysteresis in Magnetism: for Physicists, Materials Scientists, and Engineers

Giorgio Bertotti, "Hysteresis in Magnetism: for Physicists, Materials Scientists, and Engineers"
Academic Press; 1st edition (June 15, 1998) | ISBN:0120932709 | 558 pages | Djvu | 4.3 Mb

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the physics of hysteresis in magnetism and of the mathematical tools used to describe it. Hysteresis in Magnetism discusses from a unified viewpoint the relationsof hysteresis to Maxwells equations, equilibrium and non-equilibrium thermodynamics, non-linear system dynamics, micromagnetics, and domain theory. These aspects are then applied to the interpretation of magnetization reversal mechanisms: coherent rotation and switching in magnetic particles, stochastic domain wall motion and the Barkhausen effect, coercivity mechanisms and magnetic viscosity, rate-dependent hysteresis and eddy-current losses. The book emphasizes the connection between basic physical ideas and phenomenological models of interest to applications, and, in particular, to the conceptual path going from Maxwells equations and thermodynamics to micromagnetics and to Preisach hysteresis modeling.

Key Features
  • The reader will get insight into the importance and role of hysteresis in magnetism; In particular, he will learn:
  • which are the fingerprints of hysteresis in magnetism
  • which are the situations in which hysteresis may appear
  • how to describe mathematically these situations
  • how to apply these descriptions to magnetic materials
  • how to interpret and predict magnetic hysteresis phenomena observed experimentally

Evolutionary Computer Music

Springer; 1 edition | ISBN:1846285992 | 259 pages | April 3, 2007 | PDF | 2 Mb

The evolutionary computation approach to music is an exciting new development for composers and musicologists alike. For composers, it provides an innovative and natural means for generating musical ideas from a specifiable set of primitive components and processes. For musicologists, these techniques are used to model the cultural transmission and change of a population's body of musical ideas over time. In both cases, musical evolution can be guided by a variety of constraints and tendencies built into the system, such as realistic psychological factors that influence the way music is expressed, experienced, learned, stored, modified, and passed on among individuals.

This book discusses not only the applications of evolutionary computation to music, but also the tools needed to create and study such systems. These tools are drawn in part from research into the origins and evolution of biological organisms, ecologies, and cultural systems on the one hand, and from computer simulation methodologies on the other. They can be combined to create surrogate artificial worlds populated by interacting simulated organisms in which complex musical experiments can be performed that would otherwise be impossible.

This authoritative book, with contributions from experts from around the globe, demonstrates that evolutionary systems can be used to create and to study musical compositions and cultures in ways that have never before been achieved.

The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People

Powerful Lessons in Personal Change was a groundbreaker when it was first published in 1990, and it continues to be a business bestseller with more than 10 million copies sold. Stephen Covey, an internationally respected leadership authority, realizes that true success encompasses a balance of personal and professional effectiveness, so this book is a manual for performing better in both arenas. His anecdotes are as frequently from family situations as from business challenges. Before you can adopt the seven habits, you’ll need to accomplish what Covey calls a “paradigm shift”–a change in perception and interpretation of how the world works. Covey takes you through this change, which affects how you perceive and act regarding productivity, time management, positive thinking, developing your “proactive muscles” (acting with initiative rather than reacting),and much more.
