Provides a broad snapshot of recent findings showing how the environment and genes influence behavior The great debate of nature versus nurture rages on — but our understanding of the genetic basis of many behaviors has expanded over the last decade, and there is now very good evidence showing that seemingly complex behaviours can have relatively simple genetic underpinnings, but also that most behaviours have very complicated... more...

Scala is now an established programming language developed by Martin Oderskey and his team at the EPFL. The name Scala is derived from Sca(lable) La(nguage). Scala is a multi-paradigm language, incorporating object oriented approaches with functional programming.  Although some familiarity with standard computing concepts is assumed (such as the idea of compiling a program and executing this compiled from etc.) and with basic... more...

A Nation at Risk in 1983. The most recent trend has been to tie administrative evaluations to student performance, increasing stress among administrators at all levels. The cumulative effect of three decades of challenges to administrative authority has undermined the publics view of educational administrators as experts. The author examines the current state of public education, including the influence of private individuals and foundations, and... more...

Sexual selection is recognized as being responsible for some of the most extravagant morphologies and behaviors in the natural world, as well as a driver of some of the most rapid evolution. While Charles Darwin’s theory is now a fundamental component of modern evolutionary biology, the impact of genotype-by-environment interactions on sexual selection has thus far received little attention. This book represents the first... more...


Unified Process for Practitioners guides the reader through the use of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the Unified Process, and their application to Java systems. It provides an easily accessible, step by step guide to applying UML and the Unified Process. The first part provides a practical introduction to object oriented analysis and design using the Unified Process. The UML is introduced, as necessary, throughout this section (and a... more...

Enterprise Java experts John Hunt and Chris Loftus take the reader through the core technologies that make up the Enterprise Edition of the Java 2 platform (J2EE). They cover all the aspects of J2EE that both the professional and student needs to know to build multi-tier enterprise applications in Java. This includes the various technologies, design methodology, and design patterns. The text contains fully worked examples,... more...

Java and Object Orientation: An Introduction (2nd edition) shows readers how to build object oriented applications in Java. Written in a clear and concise style, with lots of examples, this revised edition provides: - A detailed understanding of object orientation - A thorough introduction to Java including building blocks, constructs, classes, data structures etc. - Coverage of graphical user interfaces and applets (AWT, Servlets) - Object oriented... more...

This book shows readers how to get the most out of C# using Object Orientation. The author takes a hands-on approach to learning C# and object orientation, using lots of worked examples. The text provides an ideal base from which to start programming. After introducing the C# language and object orientation, John Hunt goes on to explain: how to construct a user interface for a simple editor; how to obtain information on files and directories and how... more...

Scala is a new and exciting programming language that is a hybrid between object oriented languages such as Java and functional languages such as Haskell. As such it has its own programming idioms and development styles. Scala Design Patterns looks at how code reuse can be successfully achieved in Scala. A major aspect of this is the reinterpretation of the original Gang of Four design patterns in terms of Scala and its language... more...
