Barbara Liskov Professor, Massachusetts ... Barbara was one of the first women in the United States to receive a Ph.D. from a computer science department. Both audiences will acquire a solid foundation for object-oriented program design and component-based software development from this methodology. Indeed, the author treats data abstraction as the central paradigm in object-oriented program design and implementation. Lecturer in field. Barbara Huberman Liskov, American software engineering educator. en) Barbara Liskov. in mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley and her Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford. Abstraction and Specification in Program Development is included in the MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science series. Applications programmer Mitre Corporation, Bedford, Massachusetts, 1961-1962, member technical staff, computer science Research and Development, 1968-1972. There are many examples of abstractions throughout the text, and each chapter ends with pertinent references and exercises. However, the techniques presented are language independent, and an introduction to key Java concepts is included for programmers who may not be familiar with the language. Her research interests include distributed and parallel systems, programming methodology, and programming languages. src="" alt="" class="gallery-slider__content__img" height="".
