Dive into the world of SQL on Hadoop and get the most out of your Hive data warehouses. This book is your go-to resource for using Hive: authors Scott Shaw, Ankur Gupta, David Kjerrumgaard, and Andreas Francois Vermeulen take you through learning HiveQL, the SQL-like language specific to Hive, to analyze, export, and massage the data stored across your Hadoop environment. From deploying Hive on your hardware or virtual machine and setting up its initial configuration to learning how Hive interacts with Hadoop, MapReduce, Tez and other big data technologies, Practical Hive gives you a detailed treatment of the software. In addition, this book discusses the value of open source software, Hive ...
The world is drowning in data. The recent explosion of web publishing, XML data, bioinformation, scientific data, image data, geographical map data, and even email communications has put a strain on our ability to manage the information contained there. In general, the influx of massive data sets for all kinds of data present a number of difficulties with storage, organization of information, and data accessibility. A primary computing challenge in these cases is how to compress the data but still allow it to be queried quickly. In real-life situations, many instances of data are highly compressible, presenting a major opportunity for space savings. In mobile applications, such savings are c...
All events of life, all experiences, all teachings, all paths appear in Awareness and are in fact nothing but Awareness. Awareness is the seeker, Awareness is the seeking and Awareness is That, which is discovered by Awareness. This is Self-realization. No methods, no philosophies, no practices, just a direct pointing to what is never absent. This is the stunning purity of Ashtavakra Gita, an ancient yet little known scripture of Advaita Vedanta. It can be considered a truly universal text, for it does not date itself to any period of time, nor does it attach itself to any religion, culture, or ethnic group. This multilingual format brings out the simplicity & majesty of these verses of pure Non-duality, making them accessible to everyone on the spiritual path.
"The nonconforming voxel finite element method (NVFEM) greatly reduces the problem of geometric accuracy in traditional structured mesh generation by allowing deeper refinement of the elements that are cut by boundaries. The main cost of generating the NVFEM mesh lies in deciding whether an element is cut or not, which involves performing queries on the problem geometry.In this thesis, a generalized form of an efficient point location algorithm is used to perform the geometric queries in a time efficient way. The problem geometry is represented as a set of polygons and the assumption is made that the number of polygon edges might be very large for complex geometries. The algorithm uses a decomposition of the geometry into horizontal and vertical slabs to reduce the geometric query to binary searches. This makes it possible to accomplish the query, and the whole mesh generation, in a time that grows only logarithmically with the number of polygon edges.The meshing algorithm is implemented in MATLAB and tested on a variety of problems in 2D. Results obtained from timing the algorithm confirm that it has a logarithmic time complexity." --
