Construction Mathematics is an introductory level mathematics text, written specifically for students of construction and related disciplines. Learn by tackling exercises based on real-life construction maths. Examples include: costing calculations, labour costs, cost of materials and setting out of building components. Suitable for beginners and easy to follow throughout. Learn the essential basic theory along with the practical necessities. The second edition of this popular textbook is fully updated to match new curricula, and expanded to include even more learning exercises. End of chapter exercises cover a range of theoretical as well as practical problems commonly found in construction practice, and three detailed assignments based on practical tasks give students the opportunity to apply all the knowledge they have gained. Construction Mathematics addresses all the mathematical requirements of Level 2 construction NVQs from City & Guilds/CITB and Edexcel courses, including the BTEC First Diploma in Construction. Additional coverage of the core unit Mathematics in Construction and the Built Environment from BTEC National Construction, Civil Engineering and Building Services courses makes this an essential revision aid for students who do not have Level 2 mathematics experience before commencing their BTEC National studies. This is also the ideal primer for any reader who wishes to refresh their mathematics knowledge before going into a construction HNC or BSc.
The papers included in this volume were presented at the Conference on Mathematics of Program Construction held from June 26 to 30, 1989. The conference was organized by the Department of Computing Science, Groningen University, The Netherlands, at the occasion of the University's 375th anniversary. The creative inspiration of the modern computer has led to the development of new mathematics, the mathematics of program construction. Initially concerned with the posterior verification of computer programs, the mathematics have now matured to the point where they are actively being used for the discovery of elegant solutions to new programming problems. Initially concerned specifically with imperative programming, the application of mathematical methodologies is now established as an essential part of all programming paradigms - functional, logic and object-oriented programming, modularity and type structure etc. Initially concerned with software only, the mathematics are also finding fruit in hardware design so that the traditional boundaries between the two disciplines have become blurred. The varieties of mathematics of program construction are wide-ranging. They include calculi for the specification of sequential and concurrent programs, program transformation and analysis methodologies, and formal inference systems for the construction and analysis of programs. The mathematics of specification, implementation and analysis have become indispensable tools for practical programming.
This volume constitutes the proceedings of the Third International Conference on the Mathematics of Program Construction, held at Kloster Irsee, Germany in July 1995. Besides five invited lectures by distinguished researchers there are presented 19 full revised papers selected from a total of 58 submissions. The general theme is the use of crisp, clear mathematics in the discovery and design of algorithms and in the development of corresponding software and hardware; among the topics addressed are program transformation, program analysis, program verification, as well as convincing case studies.
