Computer science print that page


Computer science has many sub-fields; some, such as computational complexity theory , study the fundamental properties of computational problems , while others, such as computer graphics , emphasize the computation of specific results. Still others focus on the challenges in implementing

Abstraction (computer science) print that page

In computer science , abstraction is the process by which data and programs are defined with a representation similar to its meaning ( semantics ), while hiding away the implementation details. Abstraction tries to reduce and factor out details so that the programmer can focus on a | 2011/9/16 9:53:00

Interface (computer science) print that page

In the field of computer science , an interface refers to a point of interaction between components, and is applicable at the level of both hardware and software . This allows a component, whether a piece of hardware such as a graphics card or a piece of software such as an internet browser | 2010/9/25 6:33:56

Computer Science (UIL) print that page

Computer Science is designed to test students' programming abilities. It is not the same as the Computer Applications contest, which tests students' abilities to use word processing, spreadsheet, and database applications software, including integration of applications.

Variable (computer science) print that page

In computer programming , a variable is a symbolic name given to some known or unknown quantity or information, for the purpose of allowing the name to be used independently of the information it represents. A variable name in computer source code is usually associated with a data storage | 2011/8/18 10:39:24

Recursion (computer science) print that page


Most high-level computer programming languages support recursion by allowing a function to call itself within the program text. Some functional programming languages do not define any looping constructs but rely solely on recursion to repeatedly call code. Computability theory has proven

Vectorization (computer science) print that page

Vectorization is the more limited process of converting a computer program from a scalar implementation, which processes a single pair of operands at a time, to a vector implementation which processes one operation on multiple pairs of operands at once. The term comes from the convention | 2010/9/25 21:58:50

Bigtop (computer science) print that page


Highwire is a programming language that is aimed to add system level support, and therefore encapsulate implementation details and make it easier, to develop highly parallel and concurrent application which can then be distributed over a grid. [ edit ] Bigparts Bigparts allow PCs to turn

Computer Science Tripos print that page

The Computer Science Tripos is the three-year undergraduate course in computer science offered by the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory . It evolved out of the Diploma in Computer Science , the world’s first taught course in computer science , which started in 1953. | 2010/9/24 22:38:44

Zombie (computer science) print that page

In computer science , a zombie is a computer connected to the Internet that has been compromised by a cracker , computer virus or trojan horse and can be used to perform malicious tasks of one sort or another under remote direction.
