This book shows the is a step-by-step exercise-driven guide for students and practitioners who need to master Excel to solve practical science problems. If understanding statistics isn't your strongest suit, you are not especially mathematically-inclined, or if you are wary of computers, this is the right book for you. Excel, a widely available computer program for students and managers, is also an effective teaching and learning tool for quantitative analyses in science courses. Its powerful computational ability and graphical functions make learning statistics much easier than in years past. However, Excel 2013 for Physical Sciences Statistics: A Guide to Solving Practical Problems is the first book to capitalize on these improvements by teaching students and managers how to apply Excel to statistical techniques necessary in their courses and work. Each chapter explains statistical formulas and directs the reader to use Excel commands to solve specific, easy-to-understand science problems. Practice problems are provided at the end of each chapter with their solutions in an appendix. Separately, there is a full Practice Test (with answers in an Appendix) that allows readers to test what they have learned.

In this classic of travel writing, first published sixty years ago, a Danish journalist records his experience of life in North Africa under colonial rule. Driving through the Sahara in a battered Chevrolet, having converted to Islam and with a knowledge of Arabic, he leaves the beaten track to discover communities and landscapes shrouded in mystery for centuries. Brushes with magicians, cave-dwellers and Sufi mystics, however, prove less astonishing than the cruelties inflicted on the local populations by Mussolini's generals.

There is an ever increasing need to store this data, process them and incorporate the knowledge into everyday business operations of the companies. Before big data systems. there were high performance systems designed to do large calculations. Around the time big data became popular, high performance computing systems were mature enough to support the scientific community. But they weren't ready for the enterprise needs of data analytics. Because of the lack of system support for big data systems at that time, there was a large number of systems created to store and process data. These systems were created according to different design principles and some of them thrived through the years while some didn't succeed. Because of the diverse nature of systems and tools available for data analytics, there is a need to understand these systems and their applications from a theoretical perspective. These systems are masking the user from underlying details, and they use them without knowing how they work. This works for simple applications but when developing more complex applications that need to scale, users find themselves without the required foundational knowledge to reason about the issues. This knowledge is currently hidden in the systems and research papers. The underlying principles behind data processing systems originate from the parallel and distributed computing paradigms. Among the many systems and APIs for data processing, they use the same fundamental ideas under the hood with slightly different variations. We can breakdown data analytics systems according to these principles and study them to understand the inner workings of applications. This book defines these foundational components of large scale, distributed data processing systems and go into details independently of specific frameworks. It draws examples of current systems to explain how these principles are used in practice. Major design decisions around these foundational components define the performance, type of applications supported and usability. One of the goals of the book is to explain these differences so that readers can take informed decisions when developing applications. Further it will help readers to acquire in-depth knowledge and recognize problems in their applications such as performance issues, distributed operation issues, and fault tolerance aspects. This book aims to use state of the art research when appropriate to discuss some ideas and future of data analytics tools.

Virtual cities are places of often-fractured geographies, impossible physics, outrageous assumptions and almost untamed imaginations given digital structure. This book, the first atlas of its kind, aims to explore, map, study and celebrate them. To imagine what they would be like in reality. To paint a lasting picture of their domes, arches and walls. From metropolitan sci-fi open worlds and medieval fantasy towns to contemporary cities and glimpses of gothic horror, author and urban planner Konstantinos Dimopoulos and visual artist Maria Kallikaki have brought to life over forty game cities. Together, they document the deep and exhilarating history of iconic gaming landscapes through richly illustrated commentary and analysis. Virtual Cities transports us into these imaginary worlds, through cities that span over four decades of digital history across literary and gaming genres. Travel to fantasy cities like World of Warcraft's Orgrimmar and Grim Fandango's Rubacava; envision what could be in the familiar cities of Assassin's Creed's London and Gabriel Knight's New Orleans; and steal a glimpse of cities of the future, in Final Fantasy VII's Midgar and Half-Life 2's City 17. Within, there are many more worlds to discover - each formed in the deepest corners of the imagination, their immense beauty and complexity astounding for artists, game designers, world builders and, above all, anyone who plays and cares about video games.

In 1980, computers were instruments of science and mathematics, military secrets and academia. Stern administrators lorded over sterile university laboratories and stressed one point to the wide-eyed students privileged enough to set foot within them: Computers were not toys. Defying authority, hackers seized control of monolithic mainframes to create a new breed of computer game: the roguelike, cryptic and tough-as-nails adventures drawn from text-based symbols instead of state-of-the-art 3D graphics. Despite their visual simplicity, roguelike games captivate thousands of players around the world. From the author of the bestselling Stay Awhile and Listen series, Dungeon Hacks: How NetHack, Angband, and Other Roguelikes Changed the Course of Video Games introduces you to the visionaries behind some of the most popular roguelikes of all time and shows how their creations paved the way for the blockbuster videogames of today-and beyond.
