- In-depth surveys and tutorials on new computer technology
- Well-known authors and researchers in the field
- Extensive bibliographies with most chapters
- Many of the volumes are devoted to single themes or subfields of computer science
This series, since its first volume in 1960 and now the oldest series still being published, covers new developments in computer technology. Each volume contains 5 to 7 chapters, and 3 volumes are produced annually. Most chapters present an overview of a current subfield within computer science, including many citations and often new developments in the field by the authors of the individual chapters. Topics include hardware, software, web technology, communications, theoretic underpinnings of computing and novel applications of computers. The book series is a valuable addition to university courses that emphasize the topics under discussion in that particular volume, as well as belonging on the bookshelf of industrial practitioners who need to implement many of the technologies that are described.
Researchers in high performance computer areas, hardware manufacturers, physics and scientific computation and computer science educational programs
