Leverage the power of Julia to design and develop high performing programs About This Book Get to know the best techniques to create blazingly fast programs with Julia Stand out from the crowd by developing code that runs faster than your peers' code Complete an extensive data science project through the entire cycle from ETL to analytics and data visualization Who This Book Is For This learning path is for data scientists and for all those who work in technical and scientific computation projects. It will be great for Julia developers who are interested in high-performance technical computing. This learning path assumes that you already have some basic working knowledge of Julia's syntax and high-level dynamic languages such as MATLAB, R, Python, or Ruby. What You Will Learn Set up your Julia environment to achieve the highest productivity Solve your tasks in a high-level dynamic language and use types for your data only when needed Apply Julia to tackle problems concurrently and in a distributed environment Get a sense of the possibilities and limitations of Julia's performance Use Julia arrays to write high performance code Build a data science project through the entire cycle of ETL, analytics, and data visualization Display graphics and visualizations to carry out modeling and simulation in Julia Develop your own packages and contribute to the Julia Community In Detail In this learning path, you will learn to use an interesting and dynamic programming language—Julia! You will get a chance to tackle your numerical and data problems with Julia. You’ll begin the journey by setting up a running Julia platform before exploring its various built-in types. We’ll then move on to the various functions and constructs in Julia. We’ll walk through the two important collection types—arrays and matrices in Julia. You will dive into how Julia uses type information to achieve its performance goals, and how to use multiple dispatch to help the compiler emit high performance machine code. You will see how Julia’s design makes code fast, and you’ll see its distributed computing capabilities. By the end of this learning path, you will see how data works using simple statistics and analytics, and you’ll discover its high and dynamic performance—its real strength, which makes it particularly useful in highly intensive computing tasks. This learning path combines some of the best that Packt has to offer in one complete, curated package.

Introductory Engineering Mathematics

2016/12/02November 30, 2016

(image)

This text serves as a concise introduction to the ocean of information collectively known as “Engineering Mathematics.” Admittedly, compiling everything into a short book that is useful to any audience is an impossible task; therefore, we picked a few main ideas holding up the mathematics within the engineering curriculum instead of stuffing all of the details into such a small package. This text addresses conceptual understanding as often as possible by providing an intuitive basis for formalized study within engineering/mathematics. Whether you are a math or science instructor tasked to teach an engineering class, a high school student looking into engineering, or an engineering student already, we hope you are able to walk away from this text with tangible outcomes—maybe even a refined perspective on the subject.




Nanocoatings, Volume I

2016/12/02November 29, 2016

(image)

Global market sizes for nanocoatings and coatings are expected to be $14.3 billion and $123 billion, respectively, by the year 2019. Coatings can be classified according to their applications or method of preparation or type of property imparted to the product. They can be either solvent based or water based and may be comprised of polymers or inorganic materials. Nanocoatings with thicknesses less than 100 nm can offer superior performance properties compared with conventional coatings. Nanotuff was one of the first commercial nanocoatings it contained nanosized particles suspended in an epoxy matrix. Coatings can have specific purposes such as corrosion resistance, antiabrasive resistance, scratch resistance, chemical resistance, and stain resistance to the objects they are applied on. This book contains some new theory in the areas of solubility parameter estimates using isentropic volume expansivity, compressibility, and surface tension effects during coating flows. This volume contains separate chapters on introduction, applications, and stability.

If somebody asked you whether life was fair, how would you respond? In this book, learn how to critically think about this question of justice in our lives. You will learn that people mean many different things when they talk of a just or fair outcome. For instance, have you gotten what you deÂserve? Have you been listened to and treated with respect? Have your rights been protected? Have you been unfairly privileged? Were you suffiÂciently rewarded for your contributions? Did you receive unjust punÂishment if you broke the law? These are tremendously important topics to consider in the contentious times in which we live. In this book, you will be given new ways of thinking about these critical justice debates. In addition to getting up to speed on the research and literature in the area, you will have a chance to apply what you learn by analyzing topics like the right to free universal health care or the moÂrality of the death penalty. This book is a tremendous resource for faculty teaching traditional or online classes on the topic of social justice, as well as for those general readers who are simply interested in learning more about the topic.
