From the international bestselling auhor of Gomorrah, this searing exposé of dirty money and the drug trade reveals how they are at the heart of our lives, our economy, and our world.

This volume constitutes the proceedings of the First International Eurospace/Ada-Europe Symposium, held in Copenhagen in September 1994; this symposium series is the merger of the two conference series Ada in Aerospace and Ada-Europe. The 42 papers accepted for presentation address general Ada-related software engineering aspects as well as Ada language issues; the majority of the papers are stimulated by research and development done in the aerospace and aircraft industry. Among the topics covered are compiler issues, safety, criticality and formal methods, object-orientation, management and training, life cycle, reuse, Ada-libraries, run-time, and real-time aspects.

ISDN Design: A Practical Approach is an easy-to-understand reference for ISDN and covers topics relating to both theoretical and practical issues concerning ISDN design, including the ISDN terminal and the ISDN exchange. Software programs for ISDN applications are considered, and many design examples are given throughout the text. This book is comprised of nine chapters and begins with a brief discussion of the need for ISDN technology, both from the point of view of telephone design and from the perspective of PBX design. A refresher of basic concepts needed to understand the subject follows. This includes topics ranging from the theoretical side of data transmission to the requirements of ISDN circuit layout. After this foundation is laid, an overview of the relevant international and national standards that exist in the ISDN telephone world is given. Subsequent chapters deal with ISDN terminal equipment design; the primary access side of the network; software issues raised by ISDN, with emphasis on the effects on system and hardware design; and testing of ISDN designs. The final chapter brings together all of the salient issues facing the ISDN designer and describes an actual ISDN design. This monograph will be a useful resource for both newcomers in design engineering and experienced design engineers.

Maude is a language and system based on rewriting logic. In this comprehensive account, you’ll discover how Maude and its formal tool environment can be used in three mutually reinforcing ways: as a declarative programming language, as an executable formal specification language, and as a formal verification system. Examples used throughout the book illustrate key concepts, features, and the many practical uses of Maude.

It's autumn in Maine again. Maine once again blanketed in red. Not by the leaves. Not by the lobsters. Not by the sunrise...but by the blood of eight young women. Former homicide detective Thomas Prescott is reluctant to read the bestselling book "Eight in October," a true-crime thriller based on a string of murders occurring throughout October of the past year. After all, it was his case, and he doesn't need to be reminded of the gruesome details. "The New York Times" dubbed the serial killer, Tristen Grayer, "THE MAINEIAC." Grayer is allegedly dead, but only Prescott knows the truth--Grayer is alive and lurking in the shadows. On October 1st, the anniversary of the first murder, Tristen resurfaces, killing someone special from Prescott's past. Suddenly, it's "dé jà vu" for Prescott--except this time--the women closest to him begin to fall victim at the hands of Grayer. With the help of his former flame, medical examiner Dr. Caitlin Dodds, and "Eight in October" author, Alex Tooms, Prescott must race against the clock to stop Tristen from completing his encore. But time is running out...
