Lecturas recomendadas Ricardo Sanz Computadores I
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Besides being a profound and entertaining meditation on human thought and creativity, this book looks at the surprising points of contact between the music of Bach, the artwork of Escher, and the mathematics of Gödel. It also looks at the prospects for computers and artificial intelligence (AI) for mimicking human thought. Gödel, Escher, Bach
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Robots already walk, talk and dance; they can react to our facial expressions and obey verbal commands. When they take the next step and become fully autonomous, what will they do? Will we be partners or rivals? Could we meld into a single species - Robo sapiens? "Robo Sapiens" is a field guide to our mechanical future.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / A humorous examination with serious overtones of the concepts of space, time, and dimension. This is accepted as an essential read by all computer geeks, just like Lord of the Rings and Neuromancer and the Tao of Pooh. It's kind of a religious work, and a mathematical treatise, and a fun story of persecution and belief. You'll find yourself wanting to write a screensaver that emulates the well-detailed life of the flatlanders. Flatland
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Extends the basic concepts of Darwinian evolution to the heart of the debate on the origins of life and the maintenance of order in complex biological systems. Focuses on the concept of self- organization - the first time this concept has been incorporated into evolutionary theory. Shows how complex systems, contrary to expectations, can spontaneously exhibit stunning degrees of order, and how this order in turn is essential for the emergence and development of life on Earth. The Origins of Order
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Focusing on studies of how humans categorize objects and ideas, this book examines the new understanding of human thought which proposes that human reason is imaginative, metaphorical, and intrinsically linked with the human body.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / The Selfish Gene Neodarwinism Were vehicles for gene dissemination
Computadores I / R.Sanz / The author sets out to provide an abstract model of how the human mind really works: our minds consist of a huge aggregation of tiny mini- minds or agents that have evolved to perform highly specific tasks. Most of these agents lack the attributes we think of as intelligence and are severely limited in their ability to intercommunicate. Yet rational thought, feeling, and purposeful action result from the interaction of these basic components.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / The C++ Bible
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Defining beauty as the mating of simplicity and power, Gelernter draws analogies with the design of cars and of bridges, and shows how the most innovative minds in computing, from Alan Turing onwards, have always been obsessed by elegance.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / A modern-day classic on software engineering, Code Complete focuses on specific practices you can use to improve your code and your ability to debug it--and ultimately deliver better, more efficient programs in less time. With every bit of advice the book proffers you'll improve your ability to write elegant, self- documenting, maintainable software.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Provides a useful beginners guide for engineers that are new to embedded systems programming. It includes useful sample code to aid in understanding how an embedded system operates.
Computadores I / R.Sanz /
GST is certainly the best intent we have to transcend the mechanistic worldview from the point of view of the new science. And there is just one way to transcend that framework and it just by positing a new sphere to manage complexity: the sphere of life.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Providing information on how to understand, install, and start using the Linux operating system, this text includes: an installation tutorial, system maintenance tips, document development and programming tools, and guidelines for network, file, printer and Web site administration.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / This is an authoritative and comprehensive tour of the frontiers of the burgeoning science of the creation of artificial life. The author surveys what has been achieved so far and looks at future possibilities for generating autonomous, intelligent, even conscious living things.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / This is a simple introduction to UML from the special perspective of real-time systems. The author has substantial experience in the development of this type of systems and makes a clear presentation that is authoritative and comprehensive for the novice analyst or programmer.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / This text examines what is currently known about building safe electromechanical systems and looks at past accidents to see what practical lessons can be applied to new computer-controlled systems. The book uses real accidents to illustrate the points being made and shows how to anticipate accidents before they occur.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / An anecdotal, unorthodox description of the short cuts and other practices actually used by software developers, discussing the paradigms, management practices, and technologies meeting the increasing demands for both quality and quantity.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / This is a catalogue of well designed, practical design patterns for objectoriented systems. The book also contains a more detailed description of the rationale for, motivation behind, and experience of using design patterns. The book should enable readers to use design patterns in the object-oriented development process and to solve specific design problems using patterns.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Since the first publication of The Mythical Man-Month in 1975, no software engineer's bookshelf has been complete without it. Many software engineers and computer scientists have claimed to be "on their second or third copy" of the book. This is Fred Brooks's legendary collection of essays on the management of computer programming projects. Brooks's well-known 1986 article, No Silver Bullet, is also included.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / The all-time best-selling TCP/IP book. Volume I provides an introduction to the TCP/IP protocols. Volume 2 provides an in- depth look at individual TCP/IP protocols in light of design alternatives, implementation techniques with actual ANSI C code. Volume 3 deals with client-server programming.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / The 3rd edition of the well- known reference Java In a Nutshell covers the essential APIs of Java 1.2, including networking, security, input and output, and basic language and utility classes.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / A vision of the future of humanity. It explores how the sciences of complexity - the study of self- organization and the evolution of complex systems - coupled with the power of modern computing, have ripened into tools that can help us understand the systems of which we are a part.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Gregory Bateson was a philosopher, anthropologist, photographer, naturalist and poet, as well as the husband and collaborator of Margaret Mead. This is an anthology of his major works. It contains a foreword by his daughter Mary Katherine Bateson. Steps to an Ecology of Mind
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Roger Penrose's original and provocative ideas about the large-scale physics of the Universe, the small-scale world of quantum physics and the physics of the mind have been the subject of controversy and discussion ("The Emperor's New Mind" and "Shadows of the Mind). In this volume, he summarizes and updates his thinking in these complex areas to present a masterful summary of those areas of physics in which he feels there are major unresolved problems.
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Tells the story of Case, a burnt-out software cowboy forced to do one last job in the infinite bytes of cyberspace. This is the first apearance of the term cyberspace. Sequels: Count Zero Mona Lisa Overdrive Neuromancer
Computadores I / R.Sanz / The Tao of Pooh
Computadores I / R.Sanz / Androids, Robots and Animatrons
