Essential concepts of programming language design and implementation are explained and illustrated in the context of the object-oriented programming language (OOPL) paradigm. Written with the upper-level undergraduate student in mind, the text begins with an introductory chapter that summarizes the essential features of an OOPL, then widens the discussion to categorize the other major paradigms, introduce the important issues, and define the essential terms. After a brief second chapter on event-driven programming (EDP), subsequent chapters are built around case studies in each of the languages Smalltalk, C++, Java, C#, and Python. Included in each case study is a discussion of the accompanying libraries, including the essential container classes. For each language, one important eventdriven library is singled out and studied. Sufficient information is given so that students can complete an event-driven project in any of the given languages. After completing the course the student should have a solid set of skills in each language the instructor chooses to cover, a comprehensive overview of how these languages relate to each other, and an appreciation of the major issues in OOPL design. Key Features ■

Many first time filmmakers spend all their time on their “creative endeavors” and often forget to establish production management strategies or consider business ethics as integral parts of the process. In many cases the result is litigation or insurance problems that can lead to financial hardship and/or the inability to distribute the film.

This book looks at many types of systems from various points of view, dealing with such topics as: how they are created, their features, how they serve us, the roles of the human, the systems approach, systems thinking, how we can maximize the benefits they provide, how to repair them, and how we are able to use them to solve our problems and improve our overall quality of life. This book is designed for engineers as well as all readers that are interested in the systems around them and their roles with respect to these systems. It is a broad-stroke overview of system level concepts and how they connect to one another. It includes fundamental notions related to types of systems, their attributes, their architectures, and their performance. It is hoped that this exploration of various kinds of systems will provide some insights that increase the help we get from the systems we build, and also reduce the number of systems that are not working for us.

The book provides guidance on how to determine the proper category of hazardous waste generators, with separate and distinct sets of requirements for the three different categories of generators, and gives basic supplemental guidance for transporters, storage, and disposal facilities. It covers proper completion of hazardous waste manifests and reports. The book explains record keeping, personnel training, and other requirements necessary to be in full compliance on inspections. A companion CD with regulatory forms, data is included. Selected Topics:

Essentials of Modern Algebra

M ERCURY L EARNING NEW!

Cheryl Chute Miller This book is intended for the undergraduate one or two semester course in modern algebra, also called abstract algebra. Features groups, rings, and fields and provides numerous exercises and projects.

This book is intended for the undergraduate one or two semester course in modern algebra, also called abstract algebra. It follows that basic plan, using the axioms or rules to understand structures such as groups, rings, and fields, and giving the reader examples to help, but leaving many theorems and examples for them to try. The unique feature of the text is the list of “projects” at the end of each chapter that can be used in the classroom (with students solving them), alone, or in groups with the aid of an instructor. Because of their interactive nature, the projects are designed to understand concepts or to lead the student to new ideas they will encounter later. Features: ■

Provides a logic-based presentation, with the structures of groups, rings, and fields presented in similar ways through objects, subobjects, mappings between objects, and quotients of objects

Follows a fairly straight path without many of the side areas, such as modules, in order to introduce Galois Theory and solvability of polynomials

Includes numerous examples, exercises and the inclusion of “projects” in each chapter

Psychedelic Drug Treatments NEW!

Alcohol Self-Help & CBT NEW!

Alzheimer’s & Dementia

Ben Sessa, M.D.

Stuart Linke

Norman Poole, M.D.

Psychiatry needs psychedelics and psychedelics need psychiatry. Without researching them for medical therapy, psychiatry is turning its back on a group of compounds that could have great potential. And without the validation of the medical profession the psychedelic drugs, and those who take them offlicense, remain archaic sentiments of the past, maligned as recreational drug abusers subject to continued negative opinion.”

The author espouses self-help and the cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) approach to the treatment of alcohol addiction. It has been scientifically proven to help individuals achieve and maintain abstinence. CBT is rooted in the individualized assessment of the patient’s condition and then uses techniques that are usually oriented toward psychology and behavior modification, such as recognizing the “triggers” that result in the need for a drink, etc.

Alzheimer’s Disease, a form of dementia, affects over 5 million Americans. Most often, AD is diagnosed in people over 65 years of age, although the less-prevalent early-onset Alzheimer’s can occur much earlier. In 2006, there were 26.6 million sufferers worldwide. Here an expert in the field reviews the known causes and treatments for this debilitating disease.

DR. BEN SESSA MBBS BSc MRCPsych is a consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist working in Taunton, Somerset (UK) with the National Deaf Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. He began publishing in medical journals on the subject of psychedelics as a trainee and since then has spoken nationally and internationally to doctors in a campaign to see these fascinating substances return to the mainstream pharmacopeia. He worked on the UK’s only human hallucinogen study in modern times—being the first person to be legally administered a classical psychedelic drug in the UK for 33 years.

Dr. G. Gadkari (B.M., B.S.)

A New Mexico woman, occupied for weeks with playing online games, was convicted of second-degree murder and child abandonment, after allowing her three and a half-year-old daughter to die of malnutrition and dehydration. A Philadelphia man was convicted of third-degree murder for killing his 17month old daughter in a rage over a broken Xbox. In 2005 one study estimated that 40% of the players of World of Warcraft (the popular online role-playing game), were addicted. Unfortunately, the number of these addictions is growing exponentially in most countries. This book addresses the history, symptoms, causes, and available treatment for “video game overuse.” It examines numerous case studies and provides resources from several countries including the US, China, South Korea, and the UK.

Heart disease, regardless of age and sex, is the leading cause of death in the United States and a major health concern throughout the world. This book explains the workings of the heart and related issues through practical examples, FAQs, and illustrations.

This book is an aid to both the obesity therapist and patient to understand and plan the correct course and diet to alleviate potential health issues
