Advanced Programming in the Unix Environment
2nd Edition Hardcover ISBN: 0201433079
Rago (one of the Bell Laboratories developers who built UNIX System V, Release 4) updates the late Stevens' text on programming in the UNIX environment after some 13 years. He has updated the chapters on file input/output (I/O), files and directories, standard I/O library, system data files and information, process environment, process control, process relationships, signals, daemon processes, interprocess communication, network IPC (information processing center), terminal I/O, pseudo terminals, database libraries, and communicating with network printers. Rago has also added chapters on threads, multithreaded programming, and socket interfaces. Interfaces have been brought into line with the 2001 version of the POSIX.1 standard and case studies have been changed to cover more relevant real-world examples, most of which have been tested on the platforms of FreeBSD 5.2.1, the Linux2.4.22 kernel, Solaris 9, and Darwin 7.4.0 (the Free BSD/Mach hybrid underlying Apples Mac OS X 10.3).

SAS for Mixed Models
Paperback ISBN: 1590475003
Mixed linear models are a standard part of most graduate-level statistics courses but, according to the authors (a team of statisticians from the U. of Florida, Kansas State U., U. of Nebraska, and SAS Institute) of this text, students and practicing statisticians frequently retain questions about the proper application of mixed model methodologies. They provide guidance on the implementation of mixed models in the statistical software package SAS 9.1. Examples are taken from a wide range of application areas and range from introductory examples to technically advanced case studies. New to this edition are chapters on diagnostics for mixed models based on residuals and influence analysis, calculation of statistical power of tests, and mixed modeling from a Bayesian perspective. The CD-ROM contains all of the data sets used in the book as well as the SAS code necessary to perform the mixed model analyses. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
