Software development projects are often labor-intensive and expensive. Although many software projects fail, even nominally successful projects may come in late and over budget. A software project delivery methodology can improve the chances of su...

   Computational artifacts: towards a philosophy of computer science
Turner R.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2018. 255 pp. Type: Book (978-3-662555-64-4)

The philosophy of any discipline must account for the goals, methodology, and subject matter of the discipline [1]. There is a well-developed body of scholarship on the philosophy of mathematics and of science, especially physics and biology, and ...

   Software-defined networking-based DDoS defense mechanisms
Swami R., Dave M., Ranga V.  ACM Computing Surveys 52(2): 1-36, 2019. Type: Article

This article surveys distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on software-defined networks (SDNs). SDNs separate the control plane from the data plane in computer networks, thus allowing more flexible management of traffic and topology. SDNs a...

   The physics of quantum information: quantum cryptography, quantum teleportation, quantum computation
Bouwmeester D., Ekert A., Zeilinger A.  Springer-Verlag, London, UK, 2000. Type: Divisible Book

A century ago, the discovery of quantum mechanics initiated a revolution in physics that challenged many deeply-held intuitions. Within the last 20 years, the application of quantum mechanics to computation has opened the door to a similar revolu...

Reingold E., Dershowitz N.,  Cambridge University Press, New York, NY, 2018. 662 pp. Type: Book (978-1-107683-16-7)

Calendrical computation is motivated by a collision between incommensurability and importance. The month (the time from one new moon to another) is not an integral number of days, and the year (the time between successive spring equinoxes) is not ...
