This Second Edition of the go-to reference combines the classical analysis and modern applications of applied mathematics for chemical engineers. The book introduces traditional techniques for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs), adding new material on approximate solution methods such as perturbation techniques and elementary numerical solutions. It also includes analytical methods to deal with important classes of finite-difference equations. The last half discusses numerical solution techniques and partial differential equations (PDEs). The read...
In this day and age of ever-shorter time schedules and increasing expectations of productivity gains in every aspect of engineering activity, creative problem solving has become prominent among the most important skills that engineers possess. Unfortunately, in the day-to-day intensity of the search for new engineering solutions, it is easy to lose touch with the foundations of that creativity.
Almost every computer science and computer engineering curriculum now includes a
required team-based software development project. In some cases, the project is only one
semester or quarter in length, but a year-long team-based software development project is
fast becoming the norm.
This book introduces a variety of problem statements in classical optimal control, in optimal estimation and filtering, and in optimal control problems with non-scalar-valued performance criteria. Many example problems are solved completely in the body of the text. All chapter-end exercises are sketched in the appendix. The theoretical part of the book is based on the calculus of variations, so the exposition is very transparent and requires little mathematical rigor.
Control engineering courses have been given in universities for over fifty years. In fact it is just
fifty years since I gave my first lectures on the subject. The basic theoretical topics taught in what
is now often referred to as classical control have changed little over these years, but the tools
which can be used to support theoretical analysis and the technologies used in control systems
implementation have changed beyond recognition.
The purpose of this book is fairly simple, to introduce and reflect on some of the key writers,
ideas, models and approaches in strategic management.
Chapter one is brief overview of how strategy got here. Whittington’s work is used to give an
overview of different views (or even philosophies) of strategy positioned for us in a framework.
We use Whittington’s (2001) model of strategy as our base model. Whittington’s classical,
evolutionary, processual and systemic strategy offers us a reference point as well as the
underpinning for different ways of dealing with strategy....
A major objective of this book is to fill the gap between traditional logic design principles and logic design/optimization techniques used in practice. Over the last two decades several techniques for computer-aided design and optimization of logic circuits have been developed. However, underlying theories of these techniques are inadequately covered or not covered at all in undergraduate text books. This book covers not only the "classical" material found in current text books but also selected materials that modern logic designers need to be familiar with
This book will discuss the topic of Control Systems, which is an
interdisciplinary engineering topic. Methods considered here will
consist of both "Classical" control methods, and "Modern" control
methods. Also, discretely sampled systems (digital/computer
systems) will be considered in parallel with the more common
analog methods. This book will not focus on any single engineering discipline (electrical, mechanical, chemical,
etc), although readers should have a solid foundation in the fundamentals of at least one discipline....
Due to the success of the first edition of
The Engineering Handbook
published in 1995 I am pleased to
provide the second edition ten years later fully updated and expanded.
The purpose of
The Engineering Handbook, Second Edition
is to provide in a single volume a ready
reference for the practicing engineer in industry, government, and academia. The book in its comprehensive
format is divided into 30 sections which encompass the field of engineering and includes 19
brand new chapters and 131 fully updated contributions.
With the introduction of genetic engineering of Escherichia coli by Cohen, Boyer
and co-workers in 1973, the way was paved for a completely new approach to
optimisation of existing biotech processes and development of completely new
ones. This lead to new biotech processes for the production of recombinant proteins,
e.g. the production of human insulin by a recombinant E. coli.
This book presents the selection of various high level contributions involving thermodynamics. The book goes from the fundamentals up to several applications in different scientific fields. The content of the book has been classified in six sections: Classical Thermodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics, Property Prediction in Thermodynamics, Material and Products, Non Equilibrium and Thermodynamics in Diverse Areas. The classification of the book aims to provide to the reader the facility of finding the desired topic included in the book.
This book is intended to bridge a gap between the subject of classical vehicle
dynamics and the general-purpose computer-based discipline known as
multibody systems analysis (MBS). While there are several textbooks that
focus entirely on the subject, and mathematical foundations, of vehicle
dynamics and other more recent texts dealing with MBS, there are none yet
that link the two subjects in a comprehensive manner.
The current control problems present natural trend of increasing its complexity due to
performance criteria that is becoming more sophisticated. The necessity of practicers
and engineers in dealing with complex dynamic systems has motivated the design of
controllers, whose structures are based on multiobjective constraints, knowledge from
expert, uncertainties, nonlinearities, parameters that vary with time, time delay
conditions, multivariable systems, and others.

While this book was being written, digital sound synthesis reached something of a milestone—its
50th birthday. Set against the leisurely pace of the development and evolution of acoustic musical
instruments in previous years, a half century is not a long time. But given the rate at which
computational power has increased in the past decades, it is fair to say that digital sound is, if
not old, at least enjoying a robust middle age.
This book is based on the contributions of several authors in electromagnetic waves
propagations. Several issues are considered. The contents of most of the chapters are
highlighting non classic presentation of wave propagation and interaction with
matters. This book bridges the gap between physics and engineering in these issues.
Each chapter keeps the author notation that the reader should be aware of as he reads
from chapter to the other. The author’s notations are kept in order to eliminate any
possible unintentional errors that might lead to confusion.
A book for engineers who design and build filters of all types, including lumped element, coaxial, helical, dielectric resonator, stripline and microstrip types. A thorough review of classic and modern filter design techniques, containing extensive practical design information of passband characteristics, topologies and transformations, component effects and matching. An excellent text for the design and construction of microstrip filters.
