We decided to write this book when we discovered that a majority of the companies
we talked to had dysfunctional and low-value added processes for budgeting, fore-
casting, and financial reporting. And, as financial executives come and go, typically
little is done to streamline these processes. Even when large amounts of money are
invested in new financial software, the solutions are usually put in place based on
the old, inefficient routines.
Suitable for a one- or two-semester undergraduate-level electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science course in Discrete Systems and Digital Signal Processing. Assumes some prior knowledge of advanced calculus, linear systems for continuous-time signals, and Fourier series and transforms. Giving students a sound balance of theory and practical application, this no-nonsense text presents the fundamental concepts and techniques of modern digital signal processing with related algorithms and applications.
Single processor supercomputers have achieved great speeds and have been pushing
hardware technology to the physical limit of chip manufacturing. But soon this trend
will come to an end, because there are physical and architectural bounds, which limit
the computational power that can be achieved with a single processor system. In this
book, we study advanced computer architectures that utilize parallelism via multiple
Security of corporate networks has become big business. Many companies are willing
to provide hardware, software, consulting, design, and implementation services.The
product space is vast, offering many different levels of products that claim to provide
all manner of solutions.The problem with the current state of the security space is
that it can be a difficult sea to navigate.The vast range of companies and products as
well as the ever-growing number of consulting companies can make choosing a
network security product a grueling process.

Our first chapter puts LTE into its historical context, and lays out its requirements and key
technical features. We begin by reviewing the architectures of UMTS and GSM, and
by introducing some of the terminology that the two systems use. We then summarize
the history of mobile telecommunication systems, discuss the issues that have driven the
development of LTE, and show how UMTS has evolved first into LTE and then into an
enhanced version known as LTE-Advanced. The chapter closes by reviewing the standardization
process for LTE....
Federal Information Processing Standards Publications (FIPS PUBS) are issued by the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) after approval by the Secretary of Commerce
pursuant to Section 5131 of the Information Technology Management Reform Act of 1996
(Public Law 104-106) and the Computer Security Act of 1987 (Public Law 100-235).
The Rectisol process uses methanol as wash solvent. The
methanol has many benefits, is globally available and is a low-cost washing
agent. Furthermore, methanol is chemically and thermally stable and
will not change its behavior and structure over a long service life.
The Rectisol wash unit operates at temperatures below 0°C. To lower
the feed gas temperatures, it is cooled against cold-product streams
before entering the absorber tower. At the absorber tower, CO2 and
H2S/COS are removed.
Modern digital technology has made it possible to manipulate multi-dimensional
signals with systems that range from simple digital circuits to advanced parallel
computers. The goal of this manipulation can be divided into three categories...
The best-selling guide to the design of control systems for the fluid process industries is now updated and expanded. Emphasizing performance-based design and tuning, the new edition of the best-selling guide to process control provides engineers with reliable coverage of control technology principles for industrial fluid processes - from basic theory to advanced control applications.
The book “Advances in Diverse Industrial Applications of Nanocomposites” was well
thought about knitt ing several broad disciplines of nanocomposites in mind. A glance
through the pages of science and engineering literature shows that the use of nanocomposites
for emerging technologies represents one of the most active areas of research
and development throughout the fi elds of chemistry, physics, life sciences, and related
Today’s stringent design requirements and difficult-to-machine materials such as tough super alloys, ceramics, and composites, have made traditional machining processes costly and obsolete. As a result, manufacturers and machine design engineers are turning to advance machining processes. These machining processes utilizes electrical, chemical, and optimal sources of energy to bind, form and cut materials.
Distillation is probably one of the oldest systematic processes in the field of chemistry
and chemical engineering which goes back to the first century AD. The initial concepts
were applied in the production of distilled water. Distillation was a single step batch
process at the beginning. However, fractional distillation as is used today was
developed more than 10 centuries later.
Operations management techniques and operations strategy can successfully be
implemented to create more efficient and effective functionality within an enterprise.
While these techniques and strategies are not innovative in and of themselves, the
application of these techniques in new ways can prove to be extremely innovative.
The chapters in Advanced Topics in Applied Operations Management creatively
demonstrate a valuable connection among operations strategy, operations
management, operations research, and various departments, systems, and practices
throughout an organization....
This book is a complete study guide that fits the needs of engineers as well as those of newcomers to the field. Its most important feature is the way the author allows students with a little background in mathematics to go through all the topics presented without getting lost or discouraged. The purpose is achieved with a simple but efficient strategy: an easy to follow level is the main body of the book and a lot of examples provide the reader with all the tools necesary to grasp the basics. The higher level material (advanced mathematics) is therefore not indispensable...
This book addresses the evolutionary stage of Chemical Engineering and provides an
overview to the state of the art and technological advancements. Chemical
Engineering applications have always been challenging. Optimization of plausible
solutions to problems in economic manner through technology is worth. The script has
been designed to enable the reader to access the desired knowledge on fundamentals
and advancements in Chemical Engineering in a single text.
The signal processing task is a very critical issue in the majority of new technological inventions
and challenges in a variety of applications in both science and engineering fields.
Classical signal processing techniques have largely worked with mathematical models that
are linear, local, stationary, and Gaussian. They have always favored closed-form tractability
over real-world accuracy.
