Perspectives in Computing, Volume 15: Discrete Algorithms and Complexity provides an understanding of discrete algorithms and complexity. This book covers a variety of topics, including discrete logarithm algorithms, parallel bubbling, electronic prototyping, number theoretic complexity, and linear programming.Organized into 27 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the basic solutions of the primal and dual that can be characterized in graph-theoretic terms. This text then explores the principal partition of vertex-weighted graphs, which is utilized to solve certain assignment problems or flow problems that are formulated using such graphs. Other chapters consider a polynomial-time algorithm for finding the geodesic center of a simple polygon. This book discusses as well the three efficient algorithms for the routing problems around a rectangle. The final chapter deals with a snoopy cache multiprocessor system wherein each processor has a cache in which it stores blocks of data.This book is a valuable resource for mathematicians and researchers.
Integrated Project Control deals with project management standards as an integrated part of a framework of standards covering the total information technology (IT) life-cycle. Various aspects of integrated project control are examined, with emphasis on the IT projects of commercial organizations. Comprised of three parts, this book begins by discussing the overall corporate IT management framework and project management of development/procurement projects. It describes a''model''or''logical''framework that addresses the management requirements of all stages of the IT life-cycle as well as the direction, control, and coordination across the life-cycle. It considers the role of project management within the overall framework that can be used as a model for the future against which any company can assess its performance. The chapters explore the quantification of risk in aiding management decisions; organizational issues in project management; cost-effective control procedures for project management; and the management implications of prototyping and new generation languages. Some important aspects of project management, including quality assurance and technical issues, are also analyzed. This monograph will be a valuable resource for directors and managers of IT.
