The Real World - Timeless Ideas Not Learned in School (Hardcover, 2nd Edition): David Kramer The Real World - Timeless Ideas Not Learned in School (Hardcover, 2nd Edition)

The Real World is a collection of practical ideas to empower young adults as they enter and adjust to the real world. The ideas are simple, straightforward and easy to adapt; no major life changes are needed (though some could result). Most high schools and colleges still focus primarily on academics and ignore teaching practical skills needed to thrive in the real world. Role models for young adults are often entertainers, Olympic athletes and sports figures, all of whom devote much time to achieve their goals. Self-help media most often teach about major changes that are needed to succeed with a new approach to living. Instead, The Real World offers simple yet powerful ideas that can be harnessed immediately and successfully to one's life without a "major internal overhaul." Some of the book's more than 160 powerful ideas include how to: -Interview successfully and enter the workforce -Get great reference letters -Think for oneself -Begin building wealth (even with student loans) -Manage time effectively -Communicate clearly in business and personal relationships

The Logic of Miracles - Making Sense of Rare, Really Rare, and Impossibly Rare Events (Hardcover): Laszlo Mero The Logic of Miracles - Making Sense of Rare, Really Rare, and Impossibly Rare Events (Hardcover)
Laszlo Mero; Translated by Marton Moldovan; Edited by David Kramer

We live in a much more turbulent world than we like to think, but the science we use to analyze economic, financial, and statistical events mostly disregards the world's essentially chaotic nature. We need to get used to the idea that wildly improbable events are actually part of the natural order. The renowned Hungarian mathematician and psychologist Laszlo Mero explains how the wild and mild worlds (which he names Wildovia and Mildovia) coexist, and that different laws apply to each. Even if we live in an ultimately wild universe, he argues, we're better off pretending that it obeys Mildovian laws. Doing so may amount to a self-fulfilling prophecy and create an island of predictability in a very rough sea. Perched on the ragged border between economics and complexity theory, Mero proposes to extend the reach of science to subjects previously considered outside its grasp: the unpredictable, unrepeatable, highly improbable events we commonly call "miracles."

The proceedings at hand are the outcome of the conference for young sci- tists titled Facing the Multicore-Challenge held at the Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften, March 17-19, 2010. The conference focused on topics - lated to the impact of multicore and coprocessor technologies in science and for large-scale applications in an interdisciplinary environment. The conference was funded by the Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften and placed emphasis on the support and advancement of young scientists. The aim of the conference was to bring together leading experts as well as motivated young researchers in order to discuss, recent developments, the present status of the ?eld, and its future prospects the exchange of ideas, in a pleasant atmosphere that stimulates. It was the designated goal to address current issues including mathematical modeling, design of parallel algorithms, aspects of microprocessor architecture, parallel programming languages, c- pilers, hardware-aware computing, heterogeneous platforms, emerging archit- tures, tools, performance tuning, and requirements for large-scale applications. Thisbroadrangeofissuesisre?ectedbythepresentconferenceproceedings.The results of the presented research papers clearly show the potential of emerging technologiesintheareaofmulticoreandmanycoreprocessorsthatarepavingthe way towards personal supercomputing. However, many issues related to parallel programmingenvironments, developmentof portable and future-proof concepts, and the design of scalable and manycore-ready algorithms still need to be - dressed in future research. Some of these points are the subject of the presented papers.

This state-of-the-art survey features topics related to the impact of multicore, manycore, and coprocessor technologies in science and large-scale applications in an interdisciplinary environment. The papers included in this survey cover research in mathematical modeling, design of parallel algorithms, aspects of microprocessor architecture, parallel programming languages, hardware-aware computing, heterogeneous platforms, manycore technologies, performance tuning, and requirements for large-scale applications. The contributions presented in this volume are an outcome of an inspiring conference conceived and organized by the editors at the University of Applied Sciences (HfT) in Stuttgart, Germany, in September 2012. The 10 revised full papers selected from 21 submissions are presented together with the twelve poster abstracts and focus on combination of new aspects of microprocessor technologies, parallel applications, numerical simulation, and software development; thus they clearly show the potential of emerging technologies in the area of multicore and manycore processors that are paving the way towards personal supercomputing and very likely towards exascale computing.

The papers cover issues of current research in mathematical modeling, design of parallel algorithms, aspects of microprocessor architecture, parallel programming languages, hardware-aware computing, heterogeneous platforms, manycore technologies, performance tuning, and requirements for large-scale applications. The contributions presented in this volume offer a survey on the state of the art, the concepts and perspectives for future developments. They are an outcome of an inspiring conference conceived and organized by the editors at the Karlsruhe Institute Technology (KIT) in September 2011. The twelve revised full papers presented together with two contributed papers focus on combination of new aspects of microprocessor technologies, parallel applications, numerical simulation, and software development; thus they clearly show the potential of emerging technologies in the area of multicore and manycore processors that are paving the way towards personal supercomputing and very likely towards exascale computing.
