Members of my advanced development team at Adobe who took the course based leements the same material all benefited greatly from the time invested. An Interface Layer for Artificial Intelligence https: The book is in full color and it has some of the nicest looking and most instructive graphics I’ve ever seen even for things that I understand, such as Central Limit Theorem.

Elements of Programming | Hacker News Books

Implementations are concrete algebras of this variety. Start Free Trial No credit card required. The book presents a number of algorithms and requirements for types on which they are defined. His books are fantastic too.

Elements of Programming – Alexander A. Stepanov, Paul McJones – Google Books

Not too bad for a 4, year old multiplication algorithm. Useful and surprising applications are 1 matrix exponentiation to solve systems of linear recurrences in log n steps no stupid Fibonacci implementation here! Both the Gries book and Stepanov’s book alexandr really impressive reviews on Amazon, am looking forward to diving into them.

It’s engaging and full of graphics. Account Options Sign in.

He takes a simple number theoretic algorithm, considers what properties are required for it to work, then generalizes it and applies it in other useful and surprising cases. Coordinates with Mutable Successors 9. Practical Foundations for Programming Languages https: Its major premise is that practical programming, like other areas of science and engineering,must be based on a solid mathematical foundation.


Unfortunately basically all of the modern algorithms literature seems to avoid even the tiniest hint of abstraction; it makes the subject so much harder to hold in your head!

I would also recommend searching YouTube for videos by Sean Parent. It may appear as a highly technical text intended only for computer scientists, but it should be required reading for all practicing software engineers. For example, the fast exponentiation algorithm is defined to work with any associative operation.

The full interview can be found at: Partition and Merging The book presents a number of algorithms and requirements for types on which they are defined.

Giving devs a way out of ObjC is a pretty big draw: Not much to say, probably THE book on programming language theory. This is not an easy book. Never use new and delete or malloc and free. And then we wonder why software is notorious for being delivered late and full of bugs, while other engineers routinely deliver finished bridges, automobiles, electrical appliances, etc.

A second example is the euclidean algorithm, which he extends first to polynomials following Stevin, then to Gaussian integers, then to euclidean domains. I will most likely try Kotlin again, and this will prepare me for any possible switch to Swift.

Not released yet but I’ve been reading the drafts and it’s a nice intro to machine learning using modern ML frameworks, TensorFlow and Scikit-Learn. With Safari, you learn the way you learn best. Keean Schupke has started to explore the Elements of Programming in Rust.

Programming Conversations is another great lecture series by Alexander Stepanov: View table of contents. Nor is it a compilation of tips and tricks for incremental improvements in your programming skills.


Thank you very much to both of you, those suggestions are exactly what was asked for. This book sets out to redress this imbalance. My library Help Advanced Book Search. The only requirements for aledander port to another language are parametric polymorphism alexande algebraic data types. It looks so much like Kotlin, I am not sure I understand the fuss over it other than it gives Apple devs a way out of ObjC.

It’s part of the standard libary. Up until recently I didn’t know the difference between graphs and networks. It’s such a weird book because it talks about topics as disparate Bayesian rule, OOP, color theory, SQL, chaotic models of time lolwutstyle-sheet language design and a bjillion stepanof topics but always somehow all of these are very relevant.

This book almost never gets mentioned but it’s a superb intro to machine learning if you dig types, scalable back-ends or JVM. This book sets out to redress this imbalance. Elements of Programming Alexander A.

Selected pages Title Page. To benefit fully, you will need to work through it from beginning to end, reading the code, proving the lemmas, and doing the exercises. This is not an easy book. Implement Robust, Fault-Tolerant Systems https: If so look no further. StepanovPaul McJones.

Alexander Stepanov is fantastic. In fact, my code is linearly typed, not just affinely typed.
