DESCRIPTION In today's world, user interfaces have to be highly dynamic, asynchronous, and reliable. To meet these demands, the programming world is undergoing a radical shift towards something called Functional Reactive Programming (FRP), or just Reactive Programming. FRP offers programmers a new way to construct their applications so that they respond directly to change. And developers spend less time tracing obscure problems and more time focusing on what their code should be doing. Grokking Reactive User Interfaces teaches programmers a new way ofthinking about programs and data as well as how to build robust and extensible user interfaces. This well-illustrated book presents lots of concrete, real-world problems and then shows how FRP helps to solve them. It begins by looking at examples that get readers into the mindset of data flows and goes on to introduce the concept of a View Model. Readers also learn how FRP enables them to better manage change and introduce new features. The final part of this book focuses on higherlevel application design concerns and strategies as you look at architectural approaches and frameworks that work well with FRP thinking. KEY FEATURES* Provides lots of illustrations and real-life app examples * Teaches a new way of thinking about programs and data * Using FRP in day-to-day programming * Teaches how to handle increasing complexity in UIs AUDIENCE Readers should have a basic understanding of mobile UI development and be familiar with traditional object-oriented programming paradigms. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY FRP offers a new way to construct applications so that they respond directly to change. FRP is not a typical technology B that obviously and immediately replaces an inferior technology A. It's more of a way of thinking rather than a mechanical solution.

Restoration of Degraded Rivers: Challenges, Issues and Experiences
In the continued quest for increased economic benefits from our water resources, numerous structures and operating policies for controlling the river flow have been built and implemented. These structures and associated operating policies can facilitate navigation; they can provide greater quantities of reliable water supplies to meet agricultural, industrial and municipal water demands; they can generate hydroelectric power and energy; and they can provide increased flood protection, recreation, and other benefits. Over the past half-century we have converted many of our rivers into engineered waterways. These straightened, often periodically dredged, engineered rivers are complete with dikes, reservoirs, weirs, and diversion canals. All this engineering has enhanced economic development. However, as rivers and their floodplains become stressed from the excessive use and misuse of their resources, their contribution to economic development can be threatened. Evidence of economic and ecological degradation, especially in relatively large river systems such as the Danube, the Mississippi, the Rhine, and the Volga, has increased our appreciation of beneficial roles natural aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems play in water quantity and quality management. We have recognized the need to pay more attention to letting nature help us regulate water quantity and quality rather than working against nature and its variabilities and uncertainties. Today there are efforts underway in many developed river basins to 'de engineer' or return these straightened and controlled rivers to a more natural state.

Program Verification: Fundamental Issues in Computer Science
Among the most important problems confronting computer science is that of developing a paradigm appropriate to the discipline. Proponents of formal methods - such as John McCarthy, C.A.R. Hoare, and Edgar Dijkstra - have advanced the position that computing is a mathematical activity and that computer science should model itself after mathematics. Opponents of formal methods - by contrast, suggest that programming is the activity which is fundamental to computer science and that there are important differences that distinguish it from mathematics, which therefore cannot provide a suitable paradigm. Disagreement over the place of formal methods in computer science has recently arisen in the form of renewed interest in the nature and capacity of program verification as a method for establishing the reliability of software systems. A paper that appeared in Communications of the ACM entitled, `Program Verification: The Very Idea', by James H. Fetzer triggered an extended debate that has been discussed in several journals and that has endured for several years, engaging the interest of computer scientists (both theoretical and applied) and of other thinkers from a wide range of backgrounds who want to understand computer science as a domain of inquiry. The editors of this collection have brought together many of the most interesting and important studies that contribute to answering questions about the nature and the limits of computer science. These include early papers advocating the mathematical paradigm by McCarthy, Naur, R. Floyd, and Hoare (in Part I), others that elaborate the paradigm by Hoare, Meyer, Naur, and Scherlis and Scott (in Part II), challenges, limits and alternatives explored by C. Floyd, Smith, Blum, and Naur (in Part III), and recent work focusing on formal verification by DeMillo, Lipton, and Perlis, Fetzer, Cohn, and Colburn (in Part IV). It provides essential resources for further study. This volume will appeal to scientists, philosophers, and laypersons who want to understand the theoretical foundations of computer science and be appropriately positioned to evaluate the scope and limits of the discipline.

Towards a Software Factory
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.

Accelerating Test, Validation and Debug of High Speed Serial Interfaces
High-Speed Serial Interface (HSSI) devices have become widespread in communications, from the embedded to high-performance computing systems, and from on-chip to a wide haul. Testing of HSSIs has been a challenging topic because of signal integrity issues, long test time and the need of expensive instruments. Accelerating Test, Validation and Debug of High Speed Serial Interfaces provides innovative test and debug approaches and detailed instructions on how to arrive to practical test of modern high-speed interfaces. Accelerating Test, Validation and Debug of High Speed Serial Interfaces first proposes a new algorithm that enables us to perform receiver test more than 1000 times faster. Then an under-sampling based transmitter test scheme is presented. The scheme can accurately extract the transmitter jitter and finish the whole transmitter test within 100ms, while the test usually takes seconds. The book also presents and external loopback-based testing scheme, where and FPGA-based BER tester and a novel jitter injection technique are proposed. These schemes can be applied to validate, test and debug HSSIs with data rate up to 12.5Gbps at a lower test cost than pure ATE solutions. In addition, the book introduces an efficieng scheme to implement high performance Gaussian noise generators, suitable for evaluating BER performance under noise conditions.

Model-Based Decision Support Methodology with Environmental Applications
The complexity of issues requiring rational decision making grows and thus such decisions are becoming more and more difficult, despite advances in methodology and tools for decision support and in other areas of research. Globalization, interlinks between environmental, industrial, social and political issues, and rapid speed of change all contribute to the increase of this complexity. Specialized knowledge about decision-making processes and their support is increasing, but a large spectrum of approaches presented in the literature is typically illustrated only by simple examples. Moreover, the integration of model-based decision support methodologies and tools with specialized model-based knowledge developed for handling real problems in environmental, engineering, industrial, economical, social and political activities is often not satisfactory. Therefore, there is a need to present the state of art of methodology and tools for development of model-based decision support systems, and illustrate this state by applications to various complex real-world decision problems. The monograph reports many years of experience of many researchers, who have not only contributed to the developments in operations research but also succeeded to integrate knowledge and craft of various disciplines into several modern decision support systems which have been applied to actual complex decision-making processes in various fields of policy making. The experience presented in this book will be of value to researchers and practitioners in various fields. The issues discussed in this book gain in importance with the development of the new era of the information society, where information, knowledge, and ways of processing them become a decisive part of human activities. The examples presented in this book illustrate how how various methods and tools of model-based decision support can actually be used for helping modern decision makers that face complex problems. Overview of the contents: The first part of this three-part book presents the methodological background and characteristics of modern decision-making environment, and the value of model-based decision support thus addressing current challenges of decision support. It also provides the methodology of building and analyzing mathematical models that represent underlying physical and economic processes, and that are useful for modern decision makers at various stages of decision making. These methods support not only the analysis of Pareto-efficient solutions that correspond best to decision maker preferences but also allow the use of other modeling concepts like soft constraints, soft simulation, or inverse simulation. The second part describes various types of tools that are used for the development of decision support systems. These include tools for modeling, simulation, optimization, tools supporting choice and user interfaces. The described tools are both standard, commercially available, and nonstandard, public domain or shareware software, which are robust enough to be used also for complex applications. All four environmental applications (regional water quality management, land use planning, cost-effective policies aimed at improving the European air quality, energy planning with environmental implications) presented in the third part of the book rely on many years of cooperation between the authors of the book with several IIASA's projects, and with many researchers from the wide IIASA network of collaborating institutions. All these applications are characterized by an intensive use of model-based decision support. Finally, the appendix contains a short description of some of the tools described in the book that are available from IIASA, free of charge, for research and educational purposes. The experiences reported in this book indicate that the development of DSSs for strategic environmental decision making should be a joint effort involving experts in the subject area, modelers, and decision support experts. For the other experiences discussed in this book, the authors stress the importance of good data bases, and good libraries of tools. One of the most important requirements is a modular structure of a DSS that enhances the reusability of system modules. In such modular structures, user interfaces play an important role. The book shows how modern achievements in mathematical programming and computer sciences may be exploited for supporting decision making, especially about strategic environmental problems. It presents the methodological background of various methods for model-based decision support and reviews methods and tools for model development and analysis. The methods and tools are amply illustrated with extensive applications. Audience: This book will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in the fields of model development and analysis, model-based decision analysis and support, (particularly in the environment, economics, agriculture, engineering, and negotiations areas) and mathematical programming. For understanding of some parts of the text a background in mathematics and operational research is required but several chapters of the book will be of value also for readers without such a background. The monograph is also suitable for use as a text book for courses on advanced (Master and Ph.D.) levels for programs on Operations Research, decision analysis, decision support and various environmental studies (depending on the program different parts of the book may be emphasized).

Software Development Metrics
Managers and team leads can be blindsided by delivery issues they can't see coming when the things that keep them informed aren't being measured. Successful teams select and use practical metrics for managing projects and tracking process improvement that align with their organizational objectives and software development method. Software Development Metrics is a handbook for anyone who needs to track and guide software development and delivery at the team level. New development practices, including agile methodologies like Scrum, have redefined which measurements are most meaningful and under what conditions readers can benefit from them. It identifies key characteristics of organizational structure, process models, and development methods, and it describes the uses, mechanics, and common abuses of a number of metrics that are useful for steering and for monitoring process improvement. Another added feature of this book is that the insights and techniques in this book are based entirely on field experience. RETAIL SELLING POINTS Insights and techniques based entirely on field experience Practical information that can be put to immediate use Simplifies selecting metrics to meet organizational goals AUDIENCE The book is for people with ground-level responsibility for software delivery such as project managers, team leads, and others who have similar responsibilities. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY The book, which is not technology focused, is needed because the landscape has been changing so rapidly that management schools have been unable to keep up with all the emerging process frameworks, buzzwords, and metrics that are in play in IT organizations today.

Reactive Design Patterns
DESCRIPTION Modern distributed applications must deliver near-realtime performance while simultaneously managing big data and high user loads spread across environments ranging from cloud systems to mobile devices. Unlike traditional enterprise applications which focus on decoupling their internal components by defining programming interfaces, reactive applications go one step further and decouple their components also at runtime. This makes it possible to react effectively and efficiently to failures, varying user demands, and changes in the application's execution environment. The resulting systems are highly concurrent and fault-tolerant, with minimal dependencies among individual system components. Reactive Design Patterns is a clearly-written guide for building message-driven distributed systems that are resilient, responsive, and elastic. It contains patterns for messaging, flow control, resource management, and concurrency, along with practical issues like test-friendly designs. All patterns include concrete examples using Scala and Akka-in some cases, Java, JavaScript, and Erlang. Software engineers and architects will learn patterns that address day-to-day distributed development problems in a fault-tolerant and scalable way. Project leaders and CTOs will gain a deeper understanding of the reactive design philosophy. KEY FEATURES Offers best patterns for building reactive applications All patterns include concrete examples Discover best practices Explains theory behind reactive system design principles AUDIENCE Readers should be familiar with a standard programming language like Java, C++ or C# and be comfortable with the basics of distributed systems. Although most of the book's examples use the Scala language, no prior experience with Scala or Akka is required. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY The design patterns in this book were collected by the consultants and engineers of Typesafe during thousands of hours spent building enterprise-quality applications using Scala and Akka. Although many reactive patterns can be implemented using standard development tools like Java, others require the capabilities offered by a functional programming language like Scala and an Actor-based concurrency system like Akka.
