Admiral of the Fleet Lord 'Jacky' Fisher (1841-1920) was one of the greatest naval reformers in history. He was also a colossal figure to contemporaries, both loved and loathed, a man of exceptional charm, presence and charisma. Since the late 1940s, Jan Morris has been haunted by his face - with its startling combination of 'the suave, the sneering and the self-amused.' This evocation is both biography and a love letter, a perfect expression of her passionate interest in mavericks and outsiders, in travel, ships and the glorious pageantry of the British Empire in its prime.
The fact that there are more embedded computers than general-purpose computers and that we are impacted by hundreds of them every day is no longer news. What is news is that their increasing performance requirements, complexity and capabilities demand a new approach to their design. Fisher, Faraboschi, and Young describe a new age of embedded computing design, in which the processor is central, making the approach radically distinct from contemporary practices of embedded systems design. They demonstrate why it is essential to take a computing-centric and system-design approach to the traditional elements of nonprogrammable components, peripherals, interconnects and buses. These elements mus...
Instruction-Level Parallelism presents a collection of papers that attempts to capture the most significant work that took place during the 1980s in the area of instruction-level (ILP) parallel processing. The papers in this book discuss both compiler techniques and actual implementation experience on very long instruction word (VLIW) and superscalar architectures.
Is your memory hierarchy stopping your microprocessor from performing at the high level it should be? Memory Systems: Cache, DRAM, Disk shows you how to resolve this problem. The book tells you everything you need to know about the logical design and operation, physical design and operation, performance characteristics and resulting design trade-offs, and the energy consumption of modern memory hierarchies. You learn how to to tackle the challenging optimization problems that result from the side-effects that can appear at any point in the entire hierarchy. As a result you will be able to design and emulate the entire memory hierarchy. Understand all levels of the system hierarchy -Xcache, DRAM, and disk. Evaluate the system-level effects of all design choices. Model performance and energy consumption for each component in the memory hierarchy.
This volume reviews developments in the diagnosis and management of stroke - discussing the clinical features of stroke, new diagnostic techniques, stroke preventive measures, acute treatment of stroke, sequelae of stroke, and post-stroke rehabilitation.;Written by nearly 50 renowned experts in the field, the Handbook of Cerebrovascular Diseases: explores medical and surgical options to treat transient ischemic attacks as well as the care of patients with acute or progressing ischemic stroke; presents approaches to the management of subarachnoid and intracerebral haemorrhage; considers new methods of treatment such as interventional neuroradiology and thrombolytic therapy; describes approaches to the evaluation and management of heart disease in patients with stroke; analyzes unusual causes of stroke, including stroke in pregnant patients, children and young adults; and examines post-stroke cognitive deficits, psychiatric disorders, and rehabilitation.;Heavily referenced with more than 2600 bibliographic citations, the Handbook of Cerebrovascular Diseases is intended for neurologists, stroke specialists, cardiologists, psychiatrists, and internists.
Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease has been proving itself in the classroom for nearly 10 years and is praised as being accessible, applicable and a valuable textbook. It focuses specifically on the relationship between disease and nutrition, an area of ever increasing interest and concern as health care costs and availability continue to be an issue worldwide. Now reaching beyond just the individual healthcare concern, the potential for nutritional interventions to improve health status is also of heightened interest to public health professionals who are faced with an aging, obese, at-risk-of-diabetes population who may or may not have access to insurance. This textbook i...
