Concepts  Techniques  and Models of Computer Programming

Teaching the science and the technology of programming as a unified discipline that shows the deep relationships between programming paradigms. This innovative text presents computer programming as a unified discipline in a way that is both practical and scientifically sound. The book focuses on techniques of lasting value and explains them precisely in terms of a simple abstract machine. The book presents all major programming paradigms in a uniform framework that shows their deep relationships and how and where to use them together. After an introduction to programming concepts, the book presents both well-known and lesser-known computation models ("programming paradigms"). Each model has its own set of techniques and each is included on the basis of its usefulness in practice. The general models include declarative programming, declarative concurrency, message-passing concurrency, explicit state, object-oriented programming, shared-state concurrency, and relational programming. Specialized models include graphical user interface programming, distributed programming, and constraint programming. Each model is based on its kernel language—a simple core language that consists of a small number of programmer-significant elements. The kernel languages are introduced progressively, adding concepts one by one, thus showing the deep relationships between different models. The kernel languages are defined precisely in terms of a simple abstract machine. Because a wide variety of languages and programming paradigms can be modeled by a small set of closely related kernel languages, this approach allows programmer and student to grasp the underlying unity of programming. The book has many program fragments and exercises, all of which can be run on the Mozart Programming System, an Open Source software package that features an interactive incremental development environment.

Adding concurrency to the declarative model gives the data - driven and demand- driven concurrent models . These models also do logic programming , since they only change the order in which valid tuples are calculated .

DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF ALGORITHMS

This book, on Design and Analysis of Algorithms, in its second edition, presents a detailed coverage of the time complexity of algorithms. In this edition, a number of chapters have been modified and updated with new material. It discusses the various design factors that make one algorithm more efficient than others, and explains how to devise the new algorithms or modify the existing ones. The book begins with an introduction to algorithm analysis and then presents different methods and techniques—divide and conquer methods, the greedy method, search and traversal techniques, backtracking methods, branch and bound methods—used in the design of algorithms. Each algorithm that is written in this book is followed first by a detailed explanation and then is supported by worked-out examples. The book contains a number of figures to illustrate the theoretical aspects and also provides chapter-end questions to enable students to gauge their understanding of the underlying concepts. What distinguishes the text is its compactness, which has been achieved without sacrificing essential subject matter. This text is suitable for a course on “Design and Analysis of Algorithms”, which is offered to the students of B.Tech (Computer Science and Engineering) and undergraduate and postgraduate students of computer science and computer applications [BCA, MCA, B.Sc. (CS), M.Sc. (CS)] and other computer-related courses. New to this Edition : Explains in detail the time complexity of the algorithms for the problem of finding the GCD and matrix addition. Covers the analysis of Knapsack and Combinatorial Search and Optimization problems. Illustrates the “Branch-and-Bound” method with reference to the Knapsack problem.
