Broadly organized around the applications of Fourier analysis, "Methods of Applied Mathematics with a MATLAB Overview"Â covers both classical applications in partial differential equations and boundary value problems, as well as the concepts and methods associatedÂ to theÂ Laplace, Fourier, and discrete transforms. Transform inversion problems are also examined, along with the necessary background in complex variables. A final chapter treats wavelets, short-time Fourier analysis, and geometrically-based transforms.Â The computer program MATLAB is emphasized throughout, and an introduction to MATLAB is provided in an appendix.Â Rich in examples, illustrations, and exercises of varying difficulty, this text can be used for a one- or two-semester course and is ideal for students in pure and applied mathematics, physics, and engineering.
Zuse's textbook on software measurement provides basic principles as well as theoretical and practical guidelines for the use of numerous kinds of software measures. It is written to enable scientists, teachers, practit ioners, and students to define the basic terminology of Software Measurement and to contribute to theory building. The textbook considers, among other, qualitative and numerical models behind software measures. It explains step-by-step the importance of qualitative properties, the meaning of scale types, the foundations of the validation of measures, and the foundations of prediction models, the models behind the Function-Point method and the COCOMO model, and the qualitative assumption of object-oriented measures. For applications of software measures in practice more than two hundred software measures of the software life-cycle are described in detail (object-oriented measures included). The enclosed CD contains a selection of more than 1,600 references of literature, and a small demo version of ZD-MIS (Zuse/Drabe - Measurement Information System) is presented.
The subject of this book is the control of software engineering. The rapidly increasing demand for software is accompanied by a growth in the number of products on the market, as well as their size and complexity. Our ability to control software engineering is hardly keeping pace with this growth. As a result, software projects are often late, software products sometimes lack the required quality and the productivity improvements achieved by software engineering are insufficient to keep up with the demand This book describes ways to improve software engineering control. It argues that this should be expanded to include control of the development, maintenance and reuse of software, thus making it possible to apply many of the ideas and concepts that originate in production control and quality control. The book is based on research and experience accumulated over a number of years. During this period I had two employers: Eindhoven University of Technology and Philips Electronics. Research is not a one-man activity and I would like to thank the following persons for their contributions to the successful completion of this project. First and foremost my Ph. D. advisers Theo Bemelmans, Hans van Vliet and Fred Heemstra whose insights and experience proved invaluable at every stage. Many thanks are also due to Rob Kusters and Fred Heemstra for their patience in listening to my sometimes wild ideas and for being such excellent colleagues.
