This book provides an easy-to-understand, step-by-step approach to learning the fundamentals of Assembly language programming for Intel’s architectures, using a GNU/Linux-based computer as a tool. Offering students of computer science and engineering a hands-on learning experience, the book shows what actions the machine instructions perform, and then presents sample programs to demonstrate their application. The book is suitable for use during courses on Microprocessors, Assembly language programming, and Computer Organization in order to understand the execution model of processors. This knowledge also helps strengthen concepts when students go on to study operating systems and compiler construction. The concepts introduced are reinforced with numerous examples and review exercises. An Instructor’s CD provides all the programs given in the book and the solutions to exercises. Key Features • Discusses programming guidelines and techniques of using Assembly language programs • Shows techniques to interface C and Assembly language programs • Covers instructions from general purpose instruction sets of IA32 processors • Includes MMX and MMX-2 instructions • Covers SSE and SSE-2 instructions • Explains input-output techniques and their use in GNU/Linux-based computers • Explains GNU/Linux system calls along with methods to use them in programs • Provides a list of suggested projects • Gives ample references to explore further
Linus Pauling on Peace
Author: Barbara Marinacci, Ramesh Saligrama Krishnamurthy
Publisher: Rising Star Press
In more than 50 essays, Nobel Prize-winning Linus Pauling's brilliance, conviction, and passion for saving humankind and the planet are eloquently expressed.
Linus Pauling wrote a stellar series of over 800 scientific papers spanning an amazing range of fields, some of which he himself initiated. This book is a selection of the most important of his writings in the fields of quantum mechanics, chemical bonding (covalent, ionic, metallic, and hydrogen bonding), molecular rotation and entropy, protein structure, hemoglobin, molecular disease, molecular evolution, the antibody mechanism, the molecular basis of anesthesia, orthomolecular medicine, radiation chemistry?biology, and nuclear structure. Through these papers the reader gets a fresh, unfiltered view of the genius of Pauling's many contributions to chemistry, chemical physics, molecular biology, and molecular medicine.
Creativity for Innovation Management is a rigorous yet applied guide which illustrates what creativity is, why it matters, and how it can be developed at both individual and group levels. Unlike many technique-oriented books, this book will combine theory and practice, drawing on the latest research in psychology, organizational behaviour, innovation and entrepreneurship. This exciting new text outlines the necessary skills and competences for innovative and creative processes. It provides opportunities to explore these and also to develop them via a wide variety of activities linked to relevant tools and techniques, as well as a range of case studies. By working through key competence areas at personal and then team levels, students then have an opportunity to practice and enhance these skills. This will be complemented by online resources which will provide students with access to key tools and techniques plus activities to help develop their creativity. This textbook is ideal for students of innovation, management and entrepreneurship, as well as professionals in those industries that want to excel by developing and applying their own creativity at work.
Never at Rest
Author: Richard S. Westfall
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This richly detailed 1981 biography captures both the personal life and the scientific career of Isaac Newton, presenting a fully rounded picture of Newton the man, the scientist, the philosopher, the theologian, and the public figure. Professor Westfall treats all aspects of Newton's career, but his account centres on a full description of Newton's achievements in science. Thus the core of the work describes the development of the calculus, the experimentation that altered the direction of the science of optics, and especially the investigations in celestial dynamics that led to the law of universal gravitation.
Classic undergraduate text explores wave functions for the hydrogen atom, perturbation theory, the Pauli exclusion principle, and the structure of simple and complex molecules. Numerous tables and figures.
This manual focuses exclusively on helping readers become intelligent end-users of computers. It features 700 colour photographs and is available either with or without the accompanying CD-ROM containing interactive multimedia modules for each chapter.

Linus Pauling, the only person to win two unshared Nobel Prizes, is widely recognized as one of the most brilliant scientists and most controversial individuals of the twentieth century. A prodigy who became the youngest person elected to the National Academy of Sciences, Pauling was known for being outspoken and for leaping over scientific boundaries -- from physics to chemistry to biology to medical research. He wrote The Nature of the Chemical Bond, one of the most cited sources in scientific history, and won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1954. He risked his reputation during the McCarthy years as a vocal opponent of Cold War policies and nuclear proliferation. As a result, he was vilified by the press, investigated by the FBI, and awarded the 1962 Nobel Peace Prize. Pauling's larger-than-life personality was marked by what appear to be contradictions. Some observers found Pauling arrogant; many others loved him for his humor, humanity, and warmth. Observers likened him to the Pope, to a fascist, a wizard, and a king. He was a write-in candidate for governor of California. He was listed among the twenty greatest scientists of all time. He was listed as a subversive. He was called a threat. He was a complex individual. To mark the 100th anniversary of Linus Pauling's birth in February 2001, two experts on his life and legacy have created this remarkable volume. Included is a wide variety of original material by Pauling -- much of it never before published -- as well as contributions from his contemporaries and students, and dozens of illustrations selected from the official Pauling Papers, including photographs, drawings, and reproductions of original manuscripts andtypescripts. The resulting volume forms a mosaic portrait of a phenomenal man and his singular achievements.
