Computer Science: An Overview
Now in its eighth edition, this book continues to provide a comprehensive, accessible, and up-to-date introduction to the dynamic field of computer science using a breadth-first approach. The table of contents and the text itself have been revised and expanded to reflect changes in the field, including the trend toward using Web and Internet Technology, the evolution of Objects, and the important growth in the field of databases. Specifically, chapter three from the previous edition has been expanded into two chapters.

The test activity has the obligation of causing the termination of the looping
process by watching for a condition that indicates termination should take place.
This condition is known as the termination condition. It is for the purpose of this
The others are effectively in limbo, each waiting for another activation to
terminate before it can continue. Being a repetitive process, recursive systems
are just as dependent on proper control as are loop structures. Just as in loop
Suppose, as a consequence of the preconditions given at point A, we can
establish that a particular assertion is true each time the test for termination is
performed (point B) during the repetitive process. (Such an assertion within a
loop is ...
