This sequence is for people--adults and teenagers--who have an interest in desktop programming simply because it's enjoyable. the 3 volumes use the brand programming language because the car for an exploration of laptop technology from the point of view of symbolic computation and synthetic intelligence. brand is a dialect of Lisp, a language utilized in the main complicated learn tasks in laptop technological know-how, specially in man made intelligence. during the sequence, useful programming strategies (including better order services and recursion) are emphasised, yet conventional sequential programming can also be used whilst acceptable. within the moment variation, the 1st volumes were rearranged in order that illustrative case experiences seem with the options they show. quantity 1 incorporates a new bankruptcy approximately better order capabilities, and the recursion chapters were reorganized for higher readability. quantity 2 incorporates a new educational bankruptcy approximately macros, an unique potential of Berkeley emblem, and new initiatives. during the sequence, the bigger application examples were rewritten for higher clarity via extra large use of information abstraction. quantity 2 complex suggestions, is addressed to the reader with a few event with symbolic brand programming. It combines extra instructional chapters approximately complicated brand gains with case reports within which these suggestions are utilized in programming initiatives. The initiatives diversity from video games (a solitaire software) via utilities (finding the diversities among types of a dossier) to a working laptop or computer that interprets easy courses into emblem. This quantity additionally comprises the Berkeley emblem Reference guide as an appendix. the emblem courses in those books and the author's loose Berkeley brand interpreter can be found through the net or on diskette.
