Bernstein to discuss and sign new book at Barnes & Noble

October 07, 2005

HOBOKEN, N.J. -- Lawrence Bernstein, an Industry Research Professor in the Computer Science Department at Stevens Institute of Technology, will hold a discussion and signing of his new book, co-authored by C.M. Yuhas, at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Clifton Commons, Rt. 3 East, Clifton, N.J., on Monday, November 7 at 7:30 p.m. Bernstein will discuss his research findings at the session, "The Reliability, Security and Safety of Software Systems," co-sponsored by the North Jersey chapter of the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

Trustworthy Systems Through Quantitative Software Engineering provides an innovative, reliability-driven software engineering approach that equips students and professionals with a solid foundation in problem analysis. It is the first book in the Wiley Series on Quantitative Software Engineering, of which Bernstein serves as series editor. (Wiley-IEEE Computer Society Press; September 2005; $98.95; Cloth; 0-471-69691-9.)

The book offers tools to meet customers' changing needs while maintaining projects on schedule and within budget and enables developers to identify customer requirements, develop software designs, manage a software development team and evaluate software products. The authors examine the "magic numbers of software engineering"--rules of thumb that demonstrate how to size a project, simplify it and compute the expected staffing schedule.

The Wiley Series on Quantitative Software Engineering is designed to support students and professionals in the practice, process, technology and theory of quantitative software engineering. Each book in the series provides examples, analyses, theories, and case histories that define the technology and apply it to real-world problems. Additional books to publish in the next year include Practical Estimation in Software Engineering, Delivering Dependable Software Systems, and World Wide Web Application Engineering and Implementation.

Bernstein is a fellow of the IEEE and his areas of expertise include network architecture, network management, software technology, project management and technology conversion. He has served as Chief Technical Officer of the Operations Systems Business Unit at Bell Laboratories.

C.M. Yuhas is a freelance writer who has published articles on network management in the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communication and IEEE Network.
