When one is first taught what an array is, it is often described as a list of values, but in truth, they are much more. For one thing, arrays can be in higher dimensions that just a 1D list, but more important is the vast range of operations made possible by arrays, and the even wider applications of those.

Array programming aims to take advantage of those opportunities. The idea behind it is to enable generalized operations on scalars to apply transparently to vectors, higher dimensional arrays and matrices. Applying operations simultaneously to an entire set of values instead of explicitly iterating through individual scalar operations in a loop make it possible to work at a higher level. This way, one is able to find and manipulate macro properties of data where individual items are adjacent or otherwise similar in order to group data and handle a huge amount of it uniformly and efficiently. This ideology is very unlike object-orientated approaches which focus on breaking complex programs into their individual parts - here, we aim to craft those parts together and work with the large clumps of data that result.

Along with BASIC and MATLAB, Ada is a well-known language which supports array programming syntax, named after Ada Lovelace the first programmer.

Many array programming languages are remarkably concise for array operations if compared with equivalent code in a non-array-orientated language; what is a one-liner in the former page require pages of Java code. This very high-level representation is well suited to implicit parallelization - not to be confused with parallel processing! Array processing is distinct from that process of splitting complex problems into smaller ones to be solved by multiple processing. Here, one physical processor handles the operations on the group of elements instead. This is an active area of research and improvement as well.

You are working with a travel agent to support a conference in Las Vegas. Attendees must register for the conference with a valid email address, name and valid phone number. Every conference registration has an attendee, and a number of sessions in which he/she chooses to participate. Additionally, registrations are either with or without travel.

Java Searching an Array for Exact Match Using Loops

The program uses an array that contains valid names for 10 cities in the Illinois. You ask the user of the program to enter a city name; your program then searches the array for that city name. If it is not found, the program should print a message that informs the user that the city name is not found in the list of valid cit

Java - Magic Square

See the attached file. Magic squares. An n × n matrix that is filled with the numbers 1, 2, 3, ... , n2 is a magic square if the sum of the elements in each row, in each column, and in the two diagonals is the same value. For example, Write a program that reads in n2 values from the keyboard and tests whether they form a

Java program asks the user how many automobiles are described.

Write a program that asks the user how many automobiles are to be described, and for each automobile it inputs the user's selection of make and color. Then it outputs color and make. Although you could do this easily using a simple procedural program, do it by using a main method in class AutomobileDriver to instantiate an objec
