A circuit simulation book that addresses PSpice for Windows! Using a careful step-by-step process, this book takes readers from a simple dc circuit with its customary current and voltage measurements, through a damped resonant circuit requiring rise time to characteristics, to a complex analog/digital circuit that demands sophisticated timing and frequency measurements. Multi-level activities, examples, and exercises allow users to draw circuits directly on the screen, exactly as they would to create initial designs. It also enables them to analyze the circuits using PSpice,—and shows the circuit displayed at a level of detail unavailable through conventional techniques. This book also includes instruction in advanced techniques such as Monte Carlo and Performance. For instruction in DC/AC and devices, operational amplifiers, digital, analog, and filter design. n.

Ordinary Differential Equations

Ordinary Differential Equations
Price
70.80 BBD

This unusually well-written, skillfully organized introductory text provides an exhaustive survey of ordinary differential equations -- equations which express the relationship between variables and their derivatives. In a disarmingly simple, step-by-step style that never sacrifices mathematical rigor, the authors -- Morris Tenenbaum of Cornell University, and Harry Pollard of Purdue University -- introduce and explain complex, critically-important concepts to undergraduate students of mathematics, engineering and the sciences.
The book begins with a section that examines the origin of differential equations, defines basic terms and outlines the general solution of a differential equation-the solution that actually contains every solution of such an equation. Subsequent sections deal with such subjects as: integrating factors; dilution and accretion problems; the algebra of complex numbers; the linearization of first order systems; Laplace Transforms; Newton's Interpolation Formulas; and Picard's Method of Successive Approximations.
The book contains two exceptional chapters: one on series methods of solving differential equations, the second on numerical methods of solving differential equations. The first includes a discussion of the Legendre Differential Equation, Legendre Functions, Legendre Polynomials, the Bessel Differential Equation, and the Laguerre Differential Equation. Throughout the book, every term is clearly defined and every theorem lucidly and thoroughly analyzed, and there is an admirable balance between the theory of differential equations and their application. An abundance of solved problems and practice exercises enhances the value of Ordinary Differential Equations as a classroom text for undergraduate students and teaching professionals. The book concludes with an in-depth examination of existence and uniqueness theorems about a variety of differential equations, as well as an introduction to the theory of determinants and theorems about Wronskians.

This completely updated version of the best-selling PiC Microcontroller Project Book boasts updated software, many new projects, and comprehensive coverage of the new PIC Basic Pro version of the controller


The PIC microcontroller is enormously popular both in the U.S. and abroad. The first edition of this book was a tremendous success because of that. However, in the 4 years that have passed since the book was first published, the electronics hobbyist market has become more sophisticated. Many users of the PIC are now comfortable shelling out the $250 for the price of the Professional version of the PIC Basic (the regular version sells for $100). This new edition is fully updated and revised to include detailed directions on using both versions of the microcontroller, with no-nonsense recommendations on which is better served in different situations.

    This book is concerned with the biosynthesis, biological activity, and ecological significance of secondary metabolites (natural products).These include alcaloids such as morphine, steroids like cholesterol, and antibiotics like the penicillins. The author considers each of the major classes of secondary metabolites according to the basic 'building blocks' from which they are derived and highlights the pharmacological and toxicological properties of compounds found in insects, plants, and microorganisms. The final chapter explores the possible ecological significance of these products. The second edition incorporates new material on the isolation and characterization of the enzymes of secondary metabolism and on the new NMR techniques which have revolutionized the elucidation of biosynthetic pathways. The book is important reading for advanced undergraduates and graduates in chemistry, biochemistry, and botany, as well as researchers in the pharmaceutical industry.

    The third edition of this well-known textbook discusses some modern methods used in organic synthesis, and aims to show the value and scope of these methods and how they are used in the synthesis of complex molecules. The general plan of the book follows that of the second edition, but the opportunity has been taken to bring the book up to date and to take account of advances in knowledge and of new reactions which have come into use since publication of the earlier editions. Particular emphasis is placed on highly stereoselective organic chemistry, including stereoselective alkylations, aldol reactions, oxidations, epoxidations and reductions. New methods for the stereoselective formation of carbon-carbon double bonds, and modern application reactions are also fully considered. The book will be of use to students of chemistry and biochemistry at graduate and senior undergraduate level. It will also interest practising scientists in industry and research establishments who wish to familiarise themselves with modern synthetic methods.

    Human survival depends on a continuing energy supply, but the need for ever-increasing amounts of energy poses a dilemma: How can we provide the benefits of energy to the population of the globe without damaging the environment, negatively affecting social stability, or threatening the well-being of future generations? The solution will lie in finding sustainable energy sources and more efficient means of converting and utilizing energy. This textbook is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as others who have an interest in exploring energy resource options and technologies with a view toward achieving sustainability. It clearly presents the trade-offs and uncertainties inherent in evaluating and choosing different energy options and provides a framework for assessing policy solutions.Sustainable Energy includes illustrative examples, problems, references for further reading, and links to relevant Web sites. Outside the classroom, the book is a resource for government, industry, and nonprofit organizations. The first six chapters provide the tools for making informed energy choices. They examine the broader aspects of energy use, including resource estimation, environmental effects, and economic evaluations. Chapters 7-15 review the main energy sources of today and tomorrow, including fossil fuels, nuclear power, biomass, geothermal energy, hydropower, wind energy, and solar energy, examining their technologies, environmental impacts, and economics. The remaining chapters treat energy storage, transmission, and distribution; the electric power sector; transportation; industrial energy usage; commercial and residential buildings; and synergistic complex systems. Sustainable Energy addresses the challenges of integrating diverse factors and the importance for future generations of the energy choices we make today.
