Concepts of Programming Languages 11th Global Edition
For courses in computer programming. Evaluating the Fundamentals of Computer Programming Languages Concepts of Computer Programming Languages introduces students to the fundamental concepts of computer programming languages and provides them with the tools necessary to evaluate contemporary and future languages. An in-depth discussion of programming language structures, such as syntax and lexical and syntactic analysis, also prepares students to study compiler design. The Eleventh Edition maintains an up-to-date discussion on the topic with the removal of outdated languages such as Ada and Fortran. The addition of relevant new topics and examples such as reflection and exception handling in Python and Ruby add to the currency of the text. Through a critical analysis of design issues of various program languages, Concepts of Computer Programming Languages teaches students the essential differences between computing with specific languages.

Developed as the text for the basic computer architecture course at MIT, this book integrates a thorough coverage of digital logic design with a comprehensive presentation of computer architecture. It spans the entire range of topics from analog circuit design to operating systems. The authors seek to demystify the construction of computing hardware by illustrating systematically how it is built up from digital circuits through higher-level components to processors and memories, and how its design is affected by its intended uses. “Computation Structures” is unusually broad in scope, considering many real-world problems and trade-off decisions faced by practicing engineers. These difficult choices are confronted and given careful attention throughout the book. Topics addressed include the digital abstraction; digital representations and notation; combinational devices and circuits; sequence and state; synthesis of digital systems; finite state machines; control structures and disciplines; performance measures and trade offs; communication; interpretation; micro-interpreter architecture; microprogramming and microcode; single sequence machines; stack architectures; register architectures; reduced instruction set computers; memory architectures; processes and processor multiplexing; process synchronization; interrupts, priorities, and real time; directions and trends.
For undergraduate systems analysis and design courses. This Global Edition has been edited to include enhancements making it more relevant to students outside the United States Kendall and Kendall’s Systems Analysis and Design, 9e, is a human-centered book that concisely presents the latest systems development methods, tools, and techniques to students in an engaging and easy-to-understand manner.
