Prison Violence

Author: Kristine Levan
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317075790
Release Date: 2016-04-08
Genre: Social Science

Drawing on a range of research and media sources to provide an international perspective on the topic of prison violence, this book focuses on the impact of such violence on the individual both while he or she is incarcerated and upon his or her release from prison, as well as on society as a whole. With a special emphasis on comparisons of violence among incarcerated populations in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, Prison Violence: Causes, Consequences and Solutions explores the various systems that exist to combat the problem, whilst also considering public perceptions of offenders and punishment, as influenced by media and coverage of high-profile cases. Providing a comprehensive analysis of prison violence on national and international levels, this book examines the extent of the problem, theoretical understandings of the issue and concrete solutions designed to prevent and handle such violence. As such, it will be of interest to policy makers as well as scholars of sociology, criminology and penology.

Genre: Science

As the basic principles of EDM instruments have changed little since the third edition of 1990, there was no need for significant changes. This edition differs from its predecessor in that it contains corrections of a number of errors and misprints, totally revised tables in Appendices D, E and F and a new note in Section 2. 4. 3 on the introduction of the new temperature scale in 1990. The author is indebted to the many readers who reported the many small errors and misprints. T. Black, H. Buchanan, R. Da-Col, R. Kochle, P. H. Lam, 1. Nolton, 1. R. Pollard and A. Quade were particularly helpful. All known errors have been corrected. The assistance pro vided by most manufacturers (or their agents) with the updating of the tables with the instrument data was greatly appreciated. Sydney, February 1996 1. M. RUEGER v Preface The book has evolved from the author's continuing teaching of the subject and from two editions of a text of the same title. The first edition was published in 1978 by the School of Surveying, Universi ty of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Like its predecessors, this totally revised third edition is designed to make the subject matter more readily available to students proceeding to degrees in Survey ing and related fields.

Algorithmen Eine Einf hrung

Author: Thomas H Cormen
Publisher: Oldenbourg Verlag
ISBN: 9783486590029
Release Date: 2010-08-18
Genre: Computers

Der "Cormen" bietet eine umfassende und vielseitige Einfuhrung in das moderne Studium von Algorithmen. Es stellt viele Algorithmen Schritt fur Schritt vor, behandelt sie detailliert und macht deren Entwurf und deren Analyse allen Leserschichten zuganglich. Sorgfaltige Erklarungen zur notwendigen Mathematik helfen, die Analyse der Algorithmen zu verstehen. Den Autoren ist es dabei gegluckt, Erklarungen elementar zu halten, ohne auf Tiefe oder mathematische Exaktheit zu verzichten. Jedes der weitgehend eigenstandig gestalteten Kapitel stellt einen Algorithmus, eine Entwurfstechnik, ein Anwendungsgebiet oder ein verwandtes Thema vor. Algorithmen werden beschrieben und in Pseudocode entworfen, der fur jeden lesbar sein sollte, der schon selbst ein wenig programmiert hat. Zahlreiche Abbildungen verdeutlichen, wie die Algorithmen arbeiten. Ebenfalls angesprochen werden Belange der Implementierung und andere technische Fragen, wobei, da Effizienz als Entwurfskriterium betont wird, die Ausfuhrungen eine sorgfaltige Analyse der Laufzeiten der Programme mit ein schliessen. Uber 1000 Ubungen und Problemstellungen und ein umfangreiches Quellen- und Literaturverzeichnis komplettieren das Lehrbuch, dass durch das ganze Studium, aber auch noch danach als mathematisches Nachschlagewerk oder als technisches Handbuch nutzlich ist. Fur die dritte Auflage wurde das gesamte Buch aktualisiert. Die Anderungen sind vielfaltig und umfassen insbesondere neue Kapitel, uberarbeiteten Pseudocode, didaktische Verbesserungen und einen lebhafteren Schreibstil. So wurden etwa - neue Kapitel zu van-Emde-Boas-Baume und mehrfadigen (engl.: multithreaded) Algorithmen aufgenommen, - das Kapitel zu Rekursionsgleichungen uberarbeitet, sodass es nunmehr die Teile-und-Beherrsche-Methode besser abdeckt, - die Betrachtungen zu dynamischer Programmierung und Greedy-Algorithmen uberarbeitet; Memoisation und der Begriff des Teilproblem-Graphen als eine Moglichkeit, die Laufzeit eines auf dynamischer Programmierung beruhender Algorithmus zu verstehen, werden eingefuhrt. - 100 neue Ubungsaufgaben und 28 neue Problemstellungen erganzt. Umfangreiches Dozentenmaterial (auf englisch) ist uber die Website des US-Verlags verfugbar: http: //mitpress.mit.edu/mitpress/textbooks/instructorrequest.asp?ttype=2&tid=11866"
