Academic Press, 1980 - Computer science - 351 pages
Praise for the Series"Mandatory for academic libraries supporting computer science departments."-CHOICESince its first volume in 1960, Advances in Computers has presented detailed coverage of innovations in computer hardware, software, theory, design, and applications. It has also provided contributors with a medium in which they can explore their subjects in greater depth and breadth than journal articles usually allow. As a result, many articles have become standard references that continue to be of sugnificant, lasting value in this rapidly expanding field.
