The Boost Graph Library (BGL) is the first C++ library to apply the principles of generic programming to the construction of the advanced data structures and algorithms used in graph computations. Problems in such diverse areas as Internet packet routing, molecular biology, scientific computing, and telephone network design can be solved by using graph theory. This book presents an in-depth description of the BGL and provides working examples designed to illustrate the application of BGL to these real-world problems. Written by the BGL developers, The Boost Graph Library: User Guide and Reference Manual gives you all the information you need to take advantage of this powerful new library. Part I is a complete user guide that begins by introducing graph concepts, terminology, and generic graph algorithms. This guide also takes the reader on a tour through the major features of the BGL; all motivated with example problems. Part II is a comprehensive reference manual that provides complete documentation of all BGL concepts, algorithms, and classes. Readers will find coverage of: Graph terminology and concepts Generic programming techniques in C++ Shortest-path algorithms for Internet routing Network planning problems using the minimum-spanning tree algorithms BGL algorithms with implicitly defined graphs BGL Interfaces to other graph libraries BGL concepts and algorithms BGL classes–graph, auxiliary, and adaptor Groundbreaking in its scope, this book offers the key to unlocking the power of the BGL for the C++ programmer looking to extend the reach of generic programming beyond the Standard Template Library.

We now know that true intelligence comprises much more than traditional IQ, or intelligence quotient. In fact research has identified multiple "intelligences" -- eg. the recently popularized EQ or emotional intelligence. It is also known that we can improve and create intelligence: by exercising our brains in an appropriate way we can create new neural networks. This books provides the tools to improve all 'intelligences' in as little as 21 days. This controversial and thought-provoking topic will open the floodgates of understanding and offer new meaning to the word intelligence. This book guarantees results and will appeal to anyone interested in self-improvement and career success.

The second edition of The Boost C++ Libraries introduces 72 Boost libraries that provide a wide range of useful capabilities. They help you manage memory and process strings more easily. They provide containers and other data structures that go well beyond what the standard library offers. They make it easy to build platform-independent network applications. Simply put, these 72 libraries greatly expand your C++ toolbox. The second edition contains more than 430 examples. All examples are as short as possible, but they are complete, so you can compile and run them as is. They show you what the Boost libraries offer and give you a head start on using the libraries in your own applications. The goal of this book is to increase your efficiency as a C++ developer and to simplify software development with C++. The Boost libraries introduced in this book will help you write less code with fewer bugs and finish projects faster. You code will be more concise and self-explanatory and more easily adapted when requirements change. The second edition is based on the Boost libraries 1.55.0 and 1.56.0 with the latter version having been released in August 2014. The examples are based on C++11 and have been tested with Visual Studio 2013, GCC 4.8 and Clang 3.3 on various platforms. For Boost libraries which were incorporated into the C++11 standard library, differences between Boost and the standard library are highlighted. The Boost libraries are one of the most important and influential open source C++ libraries. Their source code is available under a permissive free software license. Several Boost libraries have been incorporated into the C++11 standard library. The Boost libraries are developed and supported by the Boost community - a worldwide developer community with a strong interest in pushing C++ boundaries further.

Ralf is a software prodigy. He works in the US government office that updates the software in the population's boosts—networked supercomputers contained in a chip implanted within the brains of 99 percent of the world's population. Invented by Chinese researchers in 2032, the boost is credited with leading humanity to its most significant cognitive leap since the discovery of fire. Days before a national upgrade, Ralf notices that the update includes an open surveillance gate—meaning that Americans, who had negotiated high levels of privacy with the Chinese manufacturers, will now be subjected to the invasive Chinese standard. Ralf attempts to hack the boost, but is caught by agents working for Washington's preeminent lobbyist. His boost is ripped from his head, and Ralf barely escapes with his life. Pursued by the lobbyist's mercenary cadre, Ralf flees to the US–Mexico border, where there are others like him—"wild" humans on the fringes of society, unenhanced by technology. It's a frightening and backward world controlled by powerful drug lords. Ralf's only hope is to somehow work with these wild bosses of the analog world—in hopes of winning back freedom in the digital one. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
This book follows a cookbook approach, with detailed and practical recipes that use Boost libraries.This book is great for developers new to Boost, and who are looking to improve their knowledge of Boost and see some undocumented details or tricks. It's assumed that you will have some experience in C++ already, as well being familiar with the basics of STL. A few chapters will require some previous knowledge of multithreading and networking. You are expected to have at least one good C++ compiler and compiled version of Boost (1.53.0 or later is recommended), which will be used during the exercises within this book.

ARE YOU READY TO GET YOUR ENERGY BACK AGAIN? Although we have in the present days, more and more products and services to help and optimize our lives, the truth is that we never felt so stressful. With evolution, comes the need to add several new activities and duties, that combined together can drain all of our energy. ARE YOU LIVING JUST TO GET THROUGH YOUR DAY? Almost everyone in the world is living at the edge, fighting to get to the end of each day. This type of lifestyle gets you always without any energy left to build your dreams and to get motivated to reach a higher state in life. We wake-up in a rush, already stressed with the traffic, the e-mail's, phone calls, office schedules and meetings. We have not any kind of break to gain our energy back during the day. We spend the day hopping it moves fast so we can relax again. The lack of motivation associated with being chronically tired is contagious. You end up "spreading the magic" like some kind of big bad fairy. If you feel tired all day long, probably you are bringing other people into the same kind of mood or energy vibration. Fatigue is the main reason for people to feel less confident. It is also one of the biggest "enemies" for our hopes, dreams and goals (both personal and professional). When we feel tired all the time we are only a step away from depression. These days, no one seems focused in getting the "energy levels back on track" and sometimes some small changes in your habits can bring back the best "YOU", full of joy, vitality and power. ARE YOUR READY TO TAKE ACTION? IT'S TIME TO BUILD UP YOUR POWER AND TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE!
