An Introduction to PHP for Scientists and Engineers: Beyond JavaScript



An Introduction to PHP for Scientists and Engineers:
Beyond JavaScript
PDF | 85 Pages | 2.65 MB

PHP, originally created in 1994 as a ‘Personal Home Page’ tool, is a server-side programming language that can be used to solve numerous computing problems that a client-side language like JavaScript cannot.

This highly useful text/reference presents key information needed to write your own online science and engineering applications, including reading, creating and manipulating data files stored as text on a server, thereby overcoming the limitations of a client-side language. This book focuses on those elements of the language - such as file input/output, arrays, built-in math functions, and user-created functions - that are essential for solving a wide range of scientific/engineering computing problems. It assumes a working knowledge of HTML, programming concepts, and JavaScript, C or a similar language.


Features: - Offers a working knowledge of PHP, essential for server-side programming, - Includes detailed code examples to guide the reader, - Contains several complete applications that show how to take advantage of server-side programming capabilities, - Extremely accessible, and ideal for self-study, - Provides an author-supported supplementary website containing code examples (www.pages.drexel.edu/~brooksdr/DRB_web_page/BookCode/PHPBookCode.htm), - Directly addresses the needs of engineers, scientists and working professionals by explaining precisely those components of PHP required.

This concise applications-oriented text is an exceptional shortcut to learning the essentials of PHP and is ideal for self-study or course use.

Dr. Brooks has authored several successful Springer titles, including: Problem Solving with Fortran 90 for Scientists and Engineers; C Programming: The Essentials for Engineers and Scientists; and An Introduction to HTML and JavaScript for Scientists and Engineers.

Construction Cost Management



Construction Cost Management
PDF | 321 Pages 1.70 MB

Aimed at students of Surveying and Construction Management programmes, this book uniquely embraces cost management in both the building and civil engineering sectors in the
UK and overseas and should thus prove useful to practitioners. Seminar questions are included at the end of each chapter with additional links to over 100 project case studies in order to
reinforce the learning experience.

Keith Potts examines the key issues and best practice in the cost management of construction projects under traditional contracts and new methodologies. All stages within the life cycle of a project are considered from pre-contract to tendering and post-contract.
Worked examples, legal cases and over 65 project case studies are used to illustrate the practical application of the theory, where appropriate.

Extensive references are captured, including the UK government’s Constructing Excellence programme and the National Audit Reports, in order to further develop an understanding of the subject. Reference is made to major projects such as the Scottish Parliament Building, Wembley Stadium and BAA’s Heathrow Terminal 5.





Planning, Estimating & Control of Chemical Construction Project



Planning, Estimating & Control of Chemical Construction Project
PDF | 480 ages | 39.02 MB

Experienced project managers had their collections of data, and one could always find books on the theory of project management; however, the data available were often inconsistent, and there was rarely an explanation of what it actually represented. Understanding the theory is great, but it does not give one the data and detail required to actually manage, estimate, schedule,o r contract.

In our contacts with plant project managers, we at FMC recognized that this informational void still existed and commissioned Pablo Navarrete to fill it. This book represents the result of that effort. In addition to committing his knowledge to writing, Pablo has conducted many courses for our plant project managers and found that this material is just what they needed.

Although real data are a unique strength of this book, the text also provides theory and valuable guidance through checklists, do's and don't s, and typical problems and corrective actions. As novice project managers plan, estimate, schedule, contract, and actually execute their projects, they will understand what isimportant, the whys as well as the whats.

Regular expressions - Pocket Reference



Regular expressions - Pocket Reference
PDF | 128 Pages | 0.97 MB

This book starts with a general introduction to regular
expressions. The first section describes and defines the
constructs used in regular expressions, and establishes the
common principles of pattern matching. The remaining sections
of the book are devoted to the syntax, features, and
usage of regular expressions in various implementations.
The implementations covered in this book are Perl, Java™,
.NET and C#, Ruby, Python, PCRE, PHP, Apache web
server, vi editor, JavaScript, and shell tools.

is well-formed.

Today, regular expressions are included in most programming
languages, as well as in many scripting languages,
editors, applications, databases, and command-line tools.
This book aims to give quick access to the syntax and
pattern-matching operations of the most popular of these
languages so that you can apply your regular-expression
knowledge in any environment.
