    Early in this decade a set of programming practices began to appear that seemed to offer a way out of the software difficulties accompanying the development of large systems. These practices, developed by Brooks,1 Baker,2 Dijkstra,3 Mills,4,5 and others, included structured programming, top-down development, chief programmer teams, HIPO (hierarchy/input-process-output) documentation, development s...

    Distributed data base management systems extend the capacities of computing systems to give many people access to a wide range of information. These systems, which arise from the combination of recent important advances in computer networks with general-purpose data base management systems, should shortly represent another significant step in commercial system development. So it is not surprising ... View full abstract»

    The appearance in the commercial marketplace of online auxiliary memory devices with very large capacities has resulted in several new and interesting problems. These problems include new applications of the devices (generally called mass storage facilities or MSF's) for storage of on-line data, the need for new data structures organized about the physical characteristics of the MSF, problems in p...

    Within the past few years data base management systems have received an increasingly large share of the computing world's efforts. They are attractive, despite their high processing cost, because they relieve the programmer of the need to program gram frequently used operations such as access methods for complicated data structures and variable- length fields, records, and files. As data base mana... View full abstract»

    Leaping from the saddle of a speeding horse onto a 500-pound steer and wrestling it to the ground may seem to have little to do with science or computers. Yet "bulldogging," as this event is known, as well as the sport of rodeo as a whole, depends increasingly on computer techniques. Today's rodeo athletes learn their skills in high school and college rodeos, and they perfect their abilities in pr... View full abstract»
