Principal component analysis is probably the oldest and best known of the It was first introduced by Pearson (1901), techniques ofmultivariate analysis. and developed independently by Hotelling (1933). Like many multivariate methods, it was not widely used until the advent of electronic computers, but it is now weIl entrenched in virtually every statistical computer package. The central idea of principal component analysis is to reduce the dimen sionality of a data set in which there are a large number of interrelated variables, while retaining as much as possible of the variation present in the data set. This reduction is achieved by transforming to a new set of variables, the principal components, which are uncorrelated, and which are ordered so that the first few retain most of the variation present in all of the original variables. Computation of the principal components reduces to the solution of an eigenvalue-eigenvector problem for a positive-semidefinite symmetrie matrix. Thus, the definition and computation of principal components are straightforward but, as will be seen, this apparently simple technique has a wide variety of different applications, as weIl as a number of different deri vations. Any feelings that principal component analysis is a narrow subject should soon be dispelled by the present book; indeed some quite broad topics which are related to principal component analysis receive no more than a brief mention in the final two chapters.

Mindstorms has two central themes: that children can learn to use computers in a masterful way and that learning to use computers can change the way they learn everything else. Even outside the classroom, Papert had a vision that the computer could be used just as casually and as personally for a diversity of purposes throughout a person's entire life. Seymour Papert makes the point that in classrooms saturated with technology there is actually more socialization and that the technology often contributes to greater interaction among students and among students and instructors.

View: 9485

In this book, Peter Herzum and Oliver Sims present a complete component based strategy, the business component approach, that applies and extends component thinking to all aspects of the software life cycle for enterprise systems. The approach includes a conceptual framework that brings components into the world of scalable systems, and outlines the different component granularities. It also includes a methodology that goes beyond current object-oriented practices to provide the concepts required to meet the real challenges of component-based development. Using their business component approach, the authors then provide a blueprint for a business component factory--a development capability that can produce software with the quality, speed, and flexibility needed to match changing business needs. Sprinkled with guidelines, tips, and architectural patterns, this book fully prepares you for the approaching component revolution. Praise for Business Component Factory ". . . this book should be very useful for anyone considering the daunting task of adopting component software on an enterprise scale."-Clemens Szyperski (Microsoft Research), Author of the award-winning book, Component Software: Beyond Object-Oriented Programming "Herzum and Sims do an admirable job of differentiating the different component concepts, allowing this clearly written book to focus on the construction of business systems by non-software practitioners, out of business component parts developed separately (and perhaps for a commodity component marketplace). This is the future of software systems, and this book is a practical, giant step in that direction."-Richard Mark Soley, PhD,Chairman and CEO, OMG "Finally, a book that takes you from component design all the way down to the middleware on which they are deployed. It?s an important contribution to the nascent server-side component discipline written by practitioners for practitioners."-Robert Orfali, Author of Client/Server Survival Guide, Third Edition and Client/Server Programming with Java and CORBA, Second Edition (both from Wiley)

This is the story of the people and machines that revolutionized our lives and made personal computers an integral part of our homes. For the typical family in the 1960s and 1970s, computers were both fascinating and frightening, but largely a mystery. Developments in microelectronics in the early 1970s meant that computers at home seemed about to become commonplace: the kitchen computer would hold all of the family's recipes and keep a record of food in the larder, the study computer would manage the family finances, and the kids' computers would educate and entertain them. Engineers, enthusiasts and budding entrepreneurs set about making home computers a reality, and although the first machines were extremely limited, later machines would indeed begin to revolutionize our lives at home, at school, and at work.
