Some Things Just Fit Together! Combin the strength of both C and UNIX to create powerful, more efficient computer programs! Five principles guide you through a complete course in programming:Emphasis on software design via program and data structure design, the design of tables, data encapsulation, and the use of abstract data types solidifies all aspects of the design process. The development of C and UNIX simultaneously, yet independently of one another, allows you to develop skills in both languages, or focus on them individually. Chapter summaries, review problems, and numerous practical programming problems enable you to tie several different concepts together in a coherent scheme. Extensive examples covering scientific problems, applied mathematics, and floating point arithmetic broaden the spectrum of computer science and programming. Problems feature the ideal gas law, the accuracy of summations, root finding, the future value of an annuity, simulation, time series smoothing, image processing, integrals, descriptive statistics, fuzzy sets, and sparse arrays.
A focus on basic principles gives you the groundwork for understanding data structures, analysis of algorithms, numerical analysis, computer graphics, and compiler design.
