This book is an introduction to computer science. Computer science is the study of
computer hardware, algorithms, and data structures and how they fit together to provide
information systems. Each of these topics can be studied at various levels. For example,
physicists study the properties of matter that allow hardware components to be designed,
electrical engineers study how the components can be combined to produce circuits, and
computer engineers study how circuits can be combined to produce computers.
Many recent texts place instructors in the difficult position of chosing between authoritative, state-of-the art coverage and an approach that is highly supportive of student learning. This carefully developed text was widely praised by reviewers for both its great clarity and its rigor. The book balances theory and practice in depth without getting bogged down in excessive technical or mathematical language and has abundant coverage of current topics of interest, such as programmable devices, computer-aided design, and testability.

This book has been designed as a reference book for students or engineers studying
communication systems possibly in the curriculum of Electrical Engineering program rather
than a text book for any course on communication. Readers are supposed to have taken at least
two junior-level courses, one on signals and systems and another one on probability and random
A function block diagram (FBD) is a block diagram that describes a function between input variables and output variables. A function is described as a set of elementary blocks. Input and output variables are connected to blocks by connection lines. An output of a block may also be connected to an input of another block
Experienced product designers are increasingly expected to be adept at incorporating a range of components into their designs. Students and experimenters too need to look beyond basic circuits and devices to achieve adequate design solutions. For those experienced in engineering design, this is the guide to electric motors.
The present volume studies the application of concepts from non-equilibrium thermodynamics to a variety of research topics. Emphasis is on the Maximum Entropy Production (MEP) principle and applications to Geosphere-Biosphere couplings. Written by leading researchers from a wide range of backgrounds, the book presents a first coherent account of an emerging field at the interface of thermodynamics, geophysics and life sciences.
Documentary films have enjoyed a huge resurgence over the last few years, and there's a new generation of filmmakers wanting to get involved. In addition, the digital revolution has made documentaries even more accessible to the general filmmaker. Documentary films can now be shot professionally using cheaper equipment, and smaller cameras enable the documentarian to be less intrusive and therefore more intimate in the subjects' lives.
The Alaskan-Aleutian arc has a history of rupturing in large and great
earthquakes. The most recent sequence began in 1938 and has ruptured
almost the entire arc from southern Alaska to the western Aleutians
(Figure 1). This sequence includes five great earthquakes: the 1938 Alaskan,
1946 Aleutian, 1957 (Central) Aleutian, 1964 Prince William Sound (or
Alaskan), and 1965 Rat Islands earthquakes. Three of these five-the
1957, 1964, and 1965 earthquakes-are among the 10 largest earthquakes
of the 20th century.
These earthquakes are clearly important to those who assess seismic
Modern electronic systems are increasingly digital: digital microprocessors,
digital logic, digital interfaces. Digital logic is easier to design and understand,
and it is much more ﬂexible than the equivalent analog circuitry would be.
As an example, imagine trying to implement any kind of sophisticated micro-
processor with analog parts. Digital electronics lets the PC on your desk
execute different programs at different times, perform complex calculations,
and communicate via the World Wide Web....
Microcontroller is a computer that is integrated on a chip, it is often used to control electronic devices. Microcontroller, in essence, is a system including a processor with enough performance and low cost (other than multi-purpose microprocessors used in computers) combined with peripheral blocks as the remember, the modular input / output, the module to change the analog and analog to digital, ... In the computer modules are usually built by the chips and circuits.
This book is designed to serve as a first course in an electrical engineering or
an electrical engineering and computer science curriculum, providing students
at the sophomore level a transition from the world of physics to the world of
electronics and computation. The book attempts to satisfy two goals: Combine
circuits and electronics into a single, unified treatment, and establish a strong
connection with the contemporary worlds of both digital and analog systems
Beginning with a basic primer on reverse engineering-including computer internals, operating systems, and assembly language-and then discussing the various
applications of reverse engineering, this book provides readers with practical, in-depth techniques for software reverse engineering. The book is broken into two parts, the first deals with security-related reverse engineering and the second explores the more practical aspects of reverse engineering.
