API Design for C++, Second Edition provides a comprehensive discussion of Application Programming Interface (API) development, from initial design through implementation, testing, documentation, release, versioning, maintenance, and deprecation. It is the only book that teaches the strategies of C++ API development, including interface design, versioning, scripting, and plug-in extensibility. Drawing from the author's experience on large scale, collaborative software projects, the text offers practical techniques of API design that produce robust code for the long-term. It presents patterns and practices that provide real value to individual developers as well as organizations.The Second Edition includes all new material fully updated for the latest versions of C++, including a new chapter on concurrency and multithreading, as well as a new chapter discussing how Objective C++ and C++ code can co-exist and how a C++ API can be accessed from Swift programs. In addition, it explores often overlooked issues, both technical and non-technical, contributing to successful design decisions that produce high quality, robust, and long-lived APIs. It focuses on various API styles and patterns that will allow you to produce elegant and durable libraries. A discussion on testing strategies concentrates on automated API testing techniques rather than attempting to include end-user application testing techniques such as GUI testing, system testing, or manual testing. Each concept is illustrated with extensive C++ code examples. Fully functional examples and working source code for experimentation are available online.

Bio-Inspired Strategies for Modeling and Detection in Diabetes Mellitus Treatment focuses on bioinspired techniques such as modeling to generate control algorithms for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. The book addresses the identification of diabetes mellitus using a high-order recurrent neural network trained by an extended Kalman filter. The authors also describe the use of metaheuristic algorithms for the parametric identification of compartmental models of diabetes mellitus widely used in research works such as the Sorensen model and the Dallaman model. In addition, the book addresses the modeling of time series for the prediction of risk scenarios such as hyperglycaemia and hypoglycaemia using deep neural networks. The detection of diabetes mellitus in the early stages or when current diagnostic techniques cannot detect glucose intolerance or prediabetes is proposed, carried out by means of deep neural networks present in the literature. Readers will find leading-edge research in diabetes identification based on discrete high-order neural networks trained with an extended Kalman filter; parametric identification of compartmental models used to describe diabetes mellitus; modeling of data obtained by continuous glucose-monitoring sensors for the prediction of risk scenarios such as hyperglycaemia and hypoglycaemia; and screening for glucose intolerance using glucose-tolerance test data and deep neural networks. Application of the proposed approaches is illustrated via simulation and real-time implementations for modeling, prediction, and classification.

Theory of Structured Parallel Programming is a comprehensive guide to structured parallel programming corresponding to traditional structured sequential programming. The book provides readers with comprehensive coverage of theoretical foundations of structured parallel programming, including analyses of parallelism and concurrency, truly concurrent process algebras, building block-based structured parallel programming, modelling and verification of parallel programming language, modelling and verification of parallel programming patterns, as well as modelling and verification of distributed systems. Parallel programming has a relatively long research history. There have been always two ways to approach parallel computing: one is the structured way, and the other is the graph-based (true concurrent) way. The structured way is often based on the interleaving semantics, such as process algebra CCS. Since the parallelism in interleaving semantics is not a fundamental computational pattern (the parallel operator can be replaced by alternative composition and sequential composition), the parallel operator often does not occur as an explicit operator, such as in the mainstream programming languages C, C++, Java, et al. Traditional structured programming had great success in sequential computation. On the other hand, current structured parallel programming has focused on parallel patterns (also known as parallel skeletons, templates, archetypes), and, in comparison to structured sequential programming, the corresponding structured parallel programming with solid foundation still has been missing. Theory of Structured Parallel Programming provides readers with the theoretical foundation for understanding and applying structured parallel programming techniques to current hardware such as multi-cores, multi-processors, and GPUs, which are now making the local computer truly parallel.
