Handbook of Software Engineering Methods book cover

Handbook of Software Engineering Methods

CC BY-NC (Attribution NonCommercial)   English

Author(s): Lara Letaw

Subject(s): Computer programming / software engineering, Software Engineering

Institution(s): Oregon State University

Publisher: Oregon State University

Last updated: 02/03/2024

Software engineering can help people create sustainable, extensible programs that solve problems people care about.

I won’t tell you how to be a software engineer; you’ll learn that over time by doing it. Instead, this book is about software engineering methods: Ways people achieve specific objectives in software engineering—that can save your project. My hope is that, after reading this book (or parts of it), you’ll feel better equipped for software engineering.

The first edition of the handbook can be found at the GitHub repository.

Romeo and Juliet book cover

Romeo and Juliet

CC BY-NC-SA (Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike)   English

Author(s): Rebecca Olson

Subject(s): Literary studies: plays and playwrights

Publisher: Oregon State University

Last updated: 01/03/2024

This edition of Romeo and Juliet was edited by students for students. We believe that reliably edited versions of the play should be available for free online. But we wanted ours to be easy to get in other ways as well. The editors—Oregon State University students who remember, far better than their professors, what it was like to read the play for the first time—carefully considered every pronoun, punctuation mark, and footnote. Our goal: to make a friendly, confidence-building edition that supported classroom activities at the high school and college level.

Based on over 20 years of teaching experience in animal nutrition, this study guide will enhance learning basic food animal nutritional principles.

In this introductory text, six fundamental nutrients, their structure, digestion, and metabolism are covered. A brief introduction to bioenergetics, feed additives, nutrient analysis, digestive organs and processes in monogastric and ruminant animals, and methods for assessing nutrient utilization are also included.

Each chapter is illustrated with a new terms box, key points, and review questions.

This study guide is an essential learning tool for undergraduate students majoring in animal sciences, veterinary medicine, or other related disciplines.

Nuclear Security book cover

Nuclear Security

CC BY (Attribution)   English

Author(s): David Bernell, Ben Wickizer, Meredith Bowers

Subject(s): Security, safety and protection skills / professions

Publisher: Oregon State University

Last updated: 01/03/2024

The danger posed by nuclear weapons and fissile materials is ever present. The end of the Cold War and the significant reduction in the size of Russian and U.S. nuclear stockpiles did not change this fact of life. There are now nine states that possess nuclear weapons – the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, Israel, India, Pakistan, and North Korea – and the number of nuclear weapons in the world in 2019 is estimated to be almost 14,000. In addition, the production of highly-enriched uranium and plutonium continues in several places, while more than 440 civilian nuclear facilities around the world are in operation, posing their own particular risks. When one also considers that non-state actors constitute a significant global danger and the potential for nuclear terrorism, it is clear the need for nuclear security remains paramount. There is no other type of weapon that comes close to doing the level of damage that nuclear weapons can inflict.

Getting Organized book cover

Getting Organized

CC BY-NC-ND (Attribution NonCommercial NoDerivatives)   English

Author(s): Christy Anderson Brekken, Joe Hobson

Subject(s): Law: wills, probate, succession, inheritance

Publisher: Oregon State University

Last updated: 01/03/2024

The purpose of this guide is to provide foundational education for farm and ranch families on how to create a basic business succession and estate plan. In working with farm families, we have identified four fundamental goals for the farm succession planning process: (1) preserving family relationships, (2) strengthening the farm business, (3) protecting the owners and operators from business disruptions, and (4) minimizing the complexity and expense of succession and estate plans. With some basic knowledge, you will be educated consumers of legal and financial services, which may save you time and money as you consult with the attorneys, accountants, and other professionals who are key to creating a successful plan. This guide also gives you a starting point as you consider your alternatives and begin family discussions about the roles that each family member or nonfamily member may play in the future of the farm as a business.

CC BY-NC (Attribution NonCommercial)   English

Author(s): Sushma Naithani

Subject(s): Botany and plant sciences

Publisher: Oregon State University

Last updated: 01/03/2024

History and Science of Cultivated Plants narrates how humans transitioned from foragers to farmers and have arrived at present-day industrial agriculture-based civilization. It entails myths, historical accounts, and scientific concepts to describe how human efforts have shaped and produced easier to grow, larger, tastier, and more nutritious fruits, vegetables, and grains from wild plants. Using examples of various economically and socially important crops central to human civilization, the book describes the origin of crop plants, the evolution of agricultural practices, fundamental concepts of natural selection vs. domestication, experimental and methodical plant breeding, and plant biotechnology.
