Netbook computers are now the fastest selling segment of the PC market. This book will help you choose a Netbook that is best suited to your needs and then show you how to set it up and use it effectively, especially by utilising the concept of 'cloud' computing.
This textbook introduces a concise approach to the design of molecular algorithms for students or researchers who are interested in dealing with complex problems. Through numerous examples and exercises, you will understand the main difference of molecular circuits and traditional digital circuits to manipulate the same problem and you will also learn how to design a molecular algorithm of solving any a problem from start to finish. The book starts with an introduction to computational aspects of digital computers and molecular computing, data representation of molecular computing, molecular operations of molecular computing and number representation of molecular computing and provides many molecular algorithm to construct the parity generator and the parity checker of error-detection codes on digital communication, to encode integers of different formats, single precision and double precision of floating-point numbers, to implement addition and subtraction of unsigned integers, to construct logic operations includingNOT, OR, AND, NOR, NAND, Exclusive-OR (XOR) andExclusive-NOR (XNOR), to implement comparators, shifters, increase, decrease, and to complete two specific operations that are to find the maximum number of "1" and to find the minimum number of "1". The book is also a useful reference source to people new for the field of molecular computing.
Grid computing is applying the resources of many computers in a network to a single problem at the same time<br> <br> Grid computing appears to be a promising trend for three reasons:<br> (1) Its ability to make more cost-effective use of a given amount of computer resources,<br> (2) As a way to solve problems that can't be approached without an enormous amount of computing power<br> (3) Because it suggests that the resources of many computers can be cooperatively and perhaps synergistically harnessed and managed as a collaboration toward a common objective.<br> <br> A number of corporations, professional groups, university consortiums, and other groups have developed or are developing frameworks and software for managing grid computing projects. The European Community (EU) is sponsoring a project for a grid for high-energy physics, earth observation, and biology applications. In the United States, the National Technology Grid is prototyping a computational grid for infrastructure and an access grid for people. Sun Microsystems offers Grid Engine software. Described as a distributed resource management tool, Grid Engine allows engineers at companies like Sony and Synopsys to pool the computer cycles on up to 80 workstations at a time.<br> * "the Grid" is a very hot topic generating broad interest from research and industry (e.g. IBM, Platform, Avaki, Entropia, Sun, HP)<br> * Grid architecture enables very popular e-Science projects like the Genome project which demand global interaction and networking<br> * In recent surveys over 50% of Chief Information Officers are expected to use Grid technology this year<br> Grid Computing:<br> * Features contributions from the major players in the field<br> * Covers all aspects of grid technology from motivation to applications<br> * Provides an extensive state-of-the-art guide in grid computing<br> <br> This is essential reading for researchers in Computing and Engineering, physicists, statisticians, engineers and mathematicians and IT policy makers.
