The first section introduces the basic concepts of number systems, storage of numerical data, and machine arithmetic. Chapters on the Intel math unit architecture, data conversions, and the details of math unit programming establish a framework for developing routines in engineering and scientific code. The second part, entitled Application Development, covers the implementation of a C++ program and flowcharting. A tutorial on Windows programming supplies skills that allow readers to create professional quality programs.

ina wants to establish a college fund for her newborn daughter that will have accumulated $120,000 at the end of 18 yr.
The aim of this book is to provide readers with a fundamental understanding of digital system concepts such as logic gates for combinatorial logic circuit design and higher level logic elements such as counters and multiplexers.
First year undergraduates taking a course in computer science or engineering (and related disciplines like information technology) are the main target audience. Foundation year students and those taking pre-university courses (like ‘A’ levels) will also benefit from the text.
I have tried to follow a simple approach in writing the text.
