Unlike books currently on the market, this book attempts to satisfy two goals: combine circuits and electronics into a single, unified treatment, and establish a strong connection with the contemporary world of digital systems. It will introduce a new way of looking not only at the treatment of circuits, but also at the treatment of introductory coursework in engineering in general.
Using the concept of ''abstraction, '' the book attempts to form a bridge between the world of physics and the world of large computer systems. In particular, it attempts to unify electrical engineering and computer science as the art of creating and exploiting successive abstractions to manage the complexity of building useful electrical systems. Computer systems are simply one type of electrical systems.
+Balances circuits theory with practical digital electronics applications.
+Illustrates concepts with real devices.
+Supports the popular circuits and electronics course on the MIT OpenCourse Ware from which professionals worldwide study this new approach.
+Written by two educators well known for their innovative teaching and research and their collaboration with industry.

Particulate Morphology - Mathematics Applied to Particle Assemblies (Hardcover, New): Keishi Gotoh Particulate Morphology - Mathematics Applied to Particle Assemblies (Hardcover, New)
Keishi Gotoh
R1,550 R1,278 Discovery Miles 12 780 Save R272 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Encompassing over fifty years of research, Professor Gotoh addresses the correlation function of spatial structures and the statistical geometry of random particle assemblies. In this book morphological study is formed into random particle assemblies to which various mathematics are applied such as correlation function, radial distribution function and statistical geometry. This leads to the general comparison between the thermodynamic state such as gases and liquids and the random particle assemblies. Although structures of molecular configurations change at every moment due to thermal vibration, liquids can be regarded as random packing of particles. Similarly, gaseous states correspond to particle dispersion. If physical and chemical properties are taken away from the subject, the remainder is the structure itself. Hence, the structural study is ubiquitous and of fundamental importance. This book will prove useful to chemical engineers working on powder technology as well as mathematicians interested in learning more about the subject.
Concisely explains various mathematics and tools applied to the subject.Incorporates multiple fields to give a clear view of the application of mathematics in powder technology.

Semi-Riemannian Geometry With Applications to Relativity, Volume 103 (Hardcover): Barrett O'Neill Semi-Riemannian Geometry With Applications to Relativity, Volume 103 (Hardcover)
Barrett O'Neill
R1,139 R1,071 Discovery Miles 10 710 Save R68 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book is an exposition of "semi-Riemannian geometry" (also called "pseudo-Riemannian geometry")--the study of a smooth manifold furnished with a metric tensor of arbitrary signature. The principal special cases are Riemannian geometry, where the metric is positive definite, and Lorentz geometry. For many years these two geometries have developed almost independently: Riemannian geometry reformulated in coordinate-free fashion and directed toward global problems, Lorentz geometry in classical tensor notation devoted to general relativity. More recently, this divergence has been reversed as physicists, turning increasingly toward invariant methods, have produced results of compelling mathematical interest.

Lectures on the Curry-Howard Isomorphism, Volume 149 (Hardcover, 149th edition): Morten Heine Sorensen, Pawel Urzyczyn Lectures on the Curry-Howard Isomorphism, Volume 149 (Hardcover, 149th edition)

The Curry-Howard isomorphism states an amazing correspondence between systems of formal logic as encountered in proof theory and computational calculi as found in type theory. For instance,
minimal propositional logic corresponds to simply typed lambda-calculus, first-order logic corresponds to dependent types, second-order logic corresponds to polymorphic types, sequent calculus is related to explicit substitution, etc.
The isomorphism has many aspects, even at the syntactic level:
formulas correspond to types, proofs correspond to terms, provability corresponds to inhabitation, proof normalization corresponds to term reduction, etc.
But there is more to the isomorphism than this. For instance, it is an old idea---due to Brouwer, Kolmogorov, and Heyting---that a constructive proof of an implication is a procedure that transforms
proofs of the antecedent into proofs of the succedent; the Curry-Howard isomorphism gives syntactic representations of such procedures. The Curry-Howard isomorphism also provides theoretical foundations for many modern proof-assistant systems (e.g. Coq).
This book give an introduction to parts of proof theory and related aspects of type theory relevant for the Curry-Howard isomorphism. It can serve as an introduction to any or both of typed lambda-calculus and intuitionistic logic.


Key features
- The Curry-Howard Isomorphism treated as common theme
- Reader-friendly introduction to two complementary subjects: Lambda-calculus and constructive logics
- Thorough study of the connection between calculi and logics

Now in its Third Edition, " Plastics " is the key text for senior students studying the science and engineering of plastic materials. Starting from microstructure and physical properties, the book covers the mechanical, chemical and electrical properties of plastic materials, and also deals in detail with wider plastics issues that today s engineers and materials scientists need such as manufacturing processes and the design of plastic products.
The new edition has been updated to reflect changes in polymer technology and the plastics industry, and the increased knowledge of the mechanical properties of plastics. A new first chapter introduces plastics properties through practical exercises, to help students to see the relevance of more academic chapters. Computer modeling has revealed the mechanics of many types of composites, so the emphasis of chapter 4 has shifted to modeling. Applications, product design and process technology have moved on; consequently the case studies in chapter 14 were updated. A new chapter 15 introduces sport and biomaterials case studies, since increasing numbers of students are enrolled on courses with these emphases. The material has been thoroughly updated, and the principles of polymer structure-property relationships set out more clearly.
*Meets latest undergraduate needs for studying polymer properties
*Expended coverage of materials selection and shape selection
*New teaching case studies plus new material on plastics for use in sport applications and biomaterials
*Examination questions to accompany each chapter, with online Instructor Solutions Manual"
