A Hands-On Introduction to Using Python in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences By Johnny Wei-Bing Lin
eBook (PDF): $5.00
Download immediately.
Python is a modern computer language whose use in the atmospheric and oceanic sciences (AOS) is growing by leaps and bounds. Yet, while many excellent resources exist for learning Python, there have... More > not been any resources specifically written for the AOS user. This book is a hands-on introduction to Python written for AOS researchers, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates who are new to Python (seasoned Python users will find the book of limited use). It focuses not on computer science but on how Python can help AOS users do AOS work. It is not a reference manual but a mini-course. We take a gentle approach to learning Python but do not aim to teach programming; readers should already know the basics of programming in another language. A black-and-white print version of this book is also available from the Lulu Marketplace. Note: Enthought Python Distribution (EPD) users should see the book's website (http://www.johnny-lin.com/pyintro) for an errata workaround specific to EPD.< Less

Software Defined Networking is revolutionizing the networking world. While the industry transitions to a software-centric architecture, a clear definition of SDN remains murky at best. This book... More > clarifies the current industry confusion about what SDN is, why it’s important, and most importantly the protocols and use cases that define SDN. OpenFlow (OF) is a critical piece of the SDN puzzle. While SDN solutions exist that do not require OF, it is undeniable that OF helped spur the innovation in SDN. The history of OF, its current and future status, and the associated use cases will be explained in detail in this book. Lastly, the book attempts to lay out SDN deployments that are real and current today, and apply practicality to the vast world of SDN architectures.< Less

The Performance of Open Source Applications By Tavish Armstrong
eBook (PDF): $5.99

In 1974, Donald Knuth wrote, "We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time: premature optimization is the root of all evil." With computers available now that are... More > millions of times faster than those available then, today's programmers have even less reason to worry about shaving cycles and saving bytes than those a generation ago. But "less" isn't "none": every once in a while, squeezing the last ounce of performance out of the machine really does matter. This book is written by over a dozen developers who have grappled with slow code, memory leaks, or uncontrollable latency in open source software. They share their mistakes and successes, and give the reader an over-the-shoulder view of how they approached their specific challenges. With examples from bioinformatics research code to web browsers, the solutions are as varied as the problems. This book will help junior and senior developers alike understand how their colleagues think about performance.< Less

The second half continues with electro-acoustic composition using SuperCollider and Logic Pro; concrete styles, voltage control, wave generators, control sources, GUIs, filtering synthesis, frequency and phase modulation synthesis, physical models and additive synthesis. Finally, computer music methods are discussed, including random number theory, generative composition, computer assisted algorithmic composition, 12-tone and set theory, probability, microtonality, and working with data files. The SC examples have been tested and conform with SC 3.6.5, including the new IDE. (Code only file available on request.) While the recording chapters target Logic Pro users on OS X, all of the techniques can easily be adapted to other platforms and DAWs.< Less
