"A marvellous book.a unique focus on what practising engineers need to do." Watts Humphrey, Software Engineering Institute, USA Requirements Engineering A good practice guide Find more RE resources at this web support site [external URL] Visit our Web page! [external URL] compbooks/ Requirements engineering is the process of discovering, documenting and managing the requirements for a computer–based system. The goal of requirements engineering is to produce a set of system requirements which, as far as possible, is complete, consistent, relevant and reflects what the customer actually wants. Although this ideal is probably unattainable, the use of a systematic approach based on engineering principles leads to better requirements than the informal approach which is still commonly used. This book presents a set of guidelines which reflect the best practice in requirements engineering. Based on the authors′ experience in research and in software and systems development, these guidelines explain in an easy–to–understand way how you can improve your requirements engineering processes. The guidelines are applicable for any type of application and, in general, apply to both systems and software engineering. The guidelines here range from simple ′common sense′ to those which propose the introduction of complex new methods. The guidelines and process improvement schemes have been organised so that you can pick and choose according to your problems, goals and available budget. There are few dependencies between guidelines so you can introduce them in any order in your organisation. Guidelines presented in the book

∗ are consistent with ISO 9000 and CMM

∗ are ranked with cost/benefit analysis

∗ give implementation advice

∗ can be combined and applied to suit your organisation′s needs

∗ are supported by a web page pointing to RE tools and resources

A thorough, accessible, and rigorous presentation of the central theorems of mathematical logic . . . ideal for advanced students of mathematics, computer science, and logic

Logic of Mathematics combines a full–scale introductory course in mathematical logic and model theory with a range of specially selected, more advanced theorems. Using a strict mathematical approach, this is the only book available that contains complete and precise proofs of all of these important theorems:

∗ Gödel′s theorems of completeness and incompleteness

∗ The independence of Goodstein′s theorem from Peano arithmetic

∗ Tarski′s theorem on real closed fields

∗ Matiyasevich′s theorem on diophantine formulas

Logic of Mathematics also features:

∗ Full coverage of model theoretical topics such as definability, compactness, ultraproducts, realization, and omission of types

∗ Clear, concise explanations of all key concepts, from Boolean algebras to Skolem–Löwenheim constructions and other topics

∗ Carefully chosen exercises for each chapter, plus helpful solution hints

At last, here is a refreshingly clear, concise, and mathematically rigorous presentation of the basic concepts of mathematical logic–requiring only a standard familiarity with abstract algebra. Employing a strict mathematical approach that emphasizes relational structures over logical language, this carefully organized text is divided into two parts, which explain the essentials of the subject in specific and straightforward terms.

Part I contains a thorough introduction to mathematical logic and model theory–including a full discussion of terms, formulas, and other fundamentals, plus detailed coverage of relational structures and Boolean algebras, Gödel′s completeness theorem, models of Peano arithmetic, and much more.

Part II focuses on a number of advanced theorems that are central to the field, such as Gödel′s first and second theorems of incompleteness, the independence proof of Goodstein′s theorem from Peano arithmetic, Tarski′s theorem on real closed fields, and others. No other text contains complete and precise proofs of all of these theorems.

With a solid and comprehensive program of exercises and selected solution hints, Logic of Mathematics is ideal for classroom use–the perfect textbook for advanced students of mathematics, computer science, and logic.

Self-Organization, Computational Maps, and Motor Control, Vol 119. Advances in Psychology

The new report by the Telecoms and Computing Market Reports has been published today. It provides updated in 2018 year analysis of telecoms and computing industries.

In the study of the computational structure of biological/robotic sensorimotor systems, distributed models have gained center stage in recent years, with a range of issues including self-organization, non-linear dynamics, field computing etc. This multidisciplinary research area is addressed here by a multidisciplinary team of contributors, who provide a balanced set of articulated presentations which include reviews, computational models, simulation studies, psychophysical, and neurophysiological experiments.

The book is divided into three parts, each characterized by a slightly different focus: in part I, the major theme concerns computational maps which typically model cortical areas, according to a view of the sensorimotor cortex as "geometric engine" and the site of "internal models" of external spaces. Part II also addresses problems of self-organization and field computing, but in a simpler computational architecture which, although lacking a specialized cortical machinery, can still behave in a very adaptive and surprising way by exploiting the interaction with the real world. Finally part III is focused on the motor control issues related to the physical properties of muscular actuators and the dynamic interactions with the world.

The reader will find different approaches on controversial issues, such as the role and nature of force fields, the need for internal representations, the nature of invariant commands, the vexing question about coordinate transformations, the distinction between hierachiacal and bi-directional modelling, and the influence of muscle stiffness.
