Published: 2005-12-26 | ISBN: 0470018453 | PDF | 468 pages | 4 MB
Symbian OS is the advanced, customizable operating system licensed by the world’s leading mobile phone manufacturers. It is designed for the specific requirements of advanced 2.5G and 3G mobile phones.
Essential guide to successful programming in Symbian OS.
Symbian OS is already used in more than 32 million mobile phones worldwide yet there are few people with long-term programming experience in Symbian OS within the software development community. As demand grows and Symbian becomes more a globally prominent operating system, it is paramount that any programmer involved in creating software products for Symbian OS devices understands the technology.
Whether you’re new to the world of Symbian and want to get developing as quickly as possible, or a seasoned developer requiring a solid base of information for creating great Symbian software, this invaluable resource will give you what you need.
Steve Babin’s clear approach introduces many challenges and helps you through the problematic areas of the Object Oriented architecture, providing many examples with effective solutions.
This must-have book covers all aspects of development ranging from low-level programming to end-user GUI applications.
Key highlights include:
Development and packaging tools
Detailed reference and examples for key APLs
Series 60, series 80 and UIQ Platforms
Includes network programming using TCP/IP
Real-world examples from an expert in the field.

eginning Android Tablet Games Programming
2010 | Jeremy Kerfs | Apress | ISBN: 1430238526 | PDF | 187 pages | 4.6 Mb
Android games programmers now have the power to write games for Android tablets. Beginning Android Tablet Games Programming explains how to enhance your Android games using the new tablet interface and the additional screen estate. You’ll learn how to bring your programming skills up to date and into a world where touch screens, games physics, and artificial intelligence come together in new and surprising ways.
Beginning Android Tablet Games Programming shows how to quickly and easily set up an Android development environment—in no time at all, you’ll be programming away. You’ll begin with some simple games using sprites and choreographed movement. Next, you’ll learn how to handle user input in the modern age of touch screens and motion.
Along the way, you’ll discover how to use that extra screen space on a tablet to provide more relaxed and more interesting user interactions in your games. You’ll learn how to use sound and music, for instance, to make your application menus more user-friendly.
The Android operating system has recently acquired multicore functionality to meet the demands of multicore devices now entering the tablet market. With Beginning Android Tablet Games Programming, you’ll discover how to harness that new power with your games programming through more process-demanding and fun techniques, including physics modeling, rich game world representation, artificial intelligence, and multiplayer interactions.
Throughout each chapter of Beginning Android Tablet Games Programming, you’ll find code that you can add or adapt to your own games to create the components you want. You can also work up to wrapping everything together into a complete Mario-type example game.
Finally, when you have your first games ready, learn how developers have released their games and made a profit. You’ll find tips on how to present your games in the Android and other application markets, and a solid approach to games marketing and monetization.

Brains, Machines, and Mathematics”
1987 | pages: 202 | ISBN: 0387965394 | PDF | 16,9 mb
Traces the relationship between the development of computing machines and our knowledge of brain functioning, and introduces corresponding mathematical models designed to describe this relationship. Begins with a historical overview tracing the rise of cybernetics to the current interchange of ideas between AI and brain theory. Subsequent chapters introduce neural sets and finite automata, the crucial cybernetic concepts of feedback and realization, pattern recognition networks, “semi-neural” learning networks, capabilities of Turing machines and automata which construct as well as compute. The final chapter presents two accessible proofs of Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem.
