The book presents the research by the Action Space! Studio on the Evolutionary City. An ambitious project meant to create a new tool not only for urban planners, but also for people involved inside project management business and people outside that practice. A kind of simulator-educational tool. The journey of discovery began by understanding evolution starting with Darwin, his phenotypes, the realms of biology, sociology, and economics. Pumped by evolution's magic the studio quickly plunged into game theory. These two lines of research synthesized into a set of games modeled on diverse aspects of the city - from the tasks a building developer faces when dealing with land value to the more intangible aspects of a city (i.e. the driving forces of desires in social groups).

For courses in Computer Organization and Architecture This package includes MasteringEngineering (R) Computer Systems: A Programmer's Perspective. This book (known as CS:APP) is for computer scientists, computer engineers, and others who want to be able to write better programs by learning what is going on "under the hood" of a computer system. The aim of the text is to explain the enduring concepts underlying all computer systems, and to show the concrete ways that these ideas affect the correctness, performance, and utility of application programs. Many systems books are written from a builder's perspective, describing how to implement the hardware or the systems software, including the operating system, compiler, and network interface. This book is written from a programmer's perspective, describing how application programmers can use their knowledge of a system to write better programs. Of course, learning what a system is supposed to do provides a good first step in learning how to build one, so this book also serves as a valuable introduction to those who go on to implement systems hardware and software. Most systems books also tend to focus on just one aspect of the system, for example, the hardware architecture, the operating system, the compiler, or the network. This book spans all of these aspects, with the unifying theme of a programmer's perspective. This package includes MasteringEngineering, an online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results through personalized learning. This innovative online program emulates the instructor's office hour environment, engaging and guiding students through engineering concepts with self-paced individualized coaching With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts. MasteringEngineering should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Please be sure you have the correct ISBN and Course ID.

What if you could use software to design hardware? Not just any hardware--imagine specifying the behavior of a complex parallel computer, sending it to a chip, and having it run on that chip--all without any manufacturing? With Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), you can design such a machine with your mouse and keyboard. When you deploy it to the FPGA, it immediately takes on the behavior that you defined. Want to create something that behaves like a display driver integrated circuit? How about a CPU with an instruction set you dreamed up? Or your very own Bitcoin miner You can do all this with FPGAs. Because you're not writing programs--rather, you're designing a chip whose sole purpose is to do what you tell it--it's faster than anything you can do in code. With Make: FPGAs, you'll learn how to break down problems into something that can be solved on an FPGA, design the logic that will run on your FPGA, and hook up electronic components to create finished projects
