A unmarried line of code bargains how to comprehend the cultural context of computing.

This e-book takes a unmarried line of code--the tremendous concise uncomplicated application for the Commodore sixty four inscribed within the title--and makes use of it aa a lens by which to think about the phenomenon of artistic computing and how laptop courses exist in tradition.

The authors of this collaboratively written booklet deal with code now not as in basic terms practical yet as a text--in the case of 10 PRINT, a textual content that seemed in lots of assorted revealed sources--that yields a narrative approximately its making, its goal, its assumptions, and extra. they think about randomness and regularity in computing and paintings, the maze in tradition, the preferred easy programming language, and the hugely influential Commodore sixty four laptop.

Steve Jobs’ Life By Design: Lessons to be Learned from His Last Lecture

On June 12, 2005, Steve Jobs gave his first—and only—commencement handle, to the 114th graduating type at Stanford college, an viewers of roughly 23,000. They witnessed background: Jobs' 22-minute ready speech hence reached 26 million on-line audience all over the world. it truly is through some distance the preferred graduation handle in historical past, framed with "three stories" that succinctly summed up an important classes Jobs realized in lifestyles.

Doroshkevich and S. Shandarin (then at the Institute of Applied Mathematics in Moscow). At that time the code used a cubic mesh to assign density and to solve the Poisson equation. The Cloud-In-Cell algorithm was used to find the density. Due to the limited computer resources in the early eighties the first version of the code could handle only 323 particles. In 1995 A. Khokhlov [8] developed the Fully Threaded Tree algorithm for Adaptive Mesh Refinement. He provided routines to handle data structures in the new Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) scheme.

Two strong spikes at large k’s are above the Nyquist frequency: the N -body code does not “see” them. Bottom panels show deviations from the predictions of the linear theory. Fluctuations on large scales (small k’s) grow according to the linear theory. 5) show that non-linear evolution increases the power spectrum on all scales proceeding from high k, where the non-linear effects are strongest, to low k, where the effects are weakest. The vertical dotted line shows the Nyquist frequency of particles.
