9783642147630: Matters Computational: Ideas, Algorithms, Source Code

This book provides algorithms and ideas for computationalists. Subjects treated include low-level algorithms, bit wizardry, combinatorial generation, fast transforms like the Fourier transform, and fast arithmetic for both real numbers and finite fields. Various optimization techniques are described and the actual performance of many given implementations is examined. The focus is on material that does not usually appear in textbooks on algorithms. The implementations are done in C++ and the GP language, written for POSIX-compliant platforms such as the Linux and BSD operating systems.

From the Author:

In agreement with the publisher you can preview (an indeed download) the entire book (as printed) at jjj.de/fxt/#fxtbook (as either pdf, dvi, or postscript). [WHY does this stupid editor eat the leading "www" of the URL? FFS!]

Book Description Springer, 2010. Gebundene Ausgabe. Book Condition: Neu. Neu Neuware, Importqualität, auf Lager, Sofortversand - This is a book for computationalists, whether working programmers or anyone interested in methods of computation and algorithms. Where necessary, the underlying ideas are explained and the algorithms are formally presented. The C++ programming language is used for low-level algorithms, and there is only a minimal set of features beyond plain C. For material, where technicalities in the C++ code would obscure the underlying ideas, the author presents either pseudo-code or, with arithmetical algorithms, the GP language. Appendix C includes an introduction to GP. Example computations are mostly given with algorithms, some of them made with programs the author refers to. Various optimization techniques are described and the actual performance of many given implementations is indicated. The accompanying software, the FXT and the hfloat libraries, are written for POSIX-compliant platforms such as the Linux and BSD operating systems. 978 pp. Englisch.
