Obtain better system performance, lower energy consumption, and avoid hand-coding arithmetic functions with this concise guide to automated optimization techniques for hardware and software design. High-level compiler optimizations and high-speed architectures for implementing FIR filters are covered, which can improve performance in...

Electronic Concepts provides a detailed introduction to modern microelectronics. Jerrold Krenz emphasizes analog and digital circuits, and describes applications of particular devices and circuits within the context of actual electronic systems. He begins with an overview of several important electronic systems, and discusses in detail the...

Arising from courses taught by the authors, this largely self-contained treatment is ideal for mathematicians who are interested in applications or for students from applied fields who want to understand the mathematics behind their subject. Early chapters cover Fourier analysis, functional analysis, probability and linear algebra, all of...

Formal methods is the term used to describe the specification and verification of software and software systems using mathematical logic. Various methodologies have been developed and incorporated into software tools. An important subclass is distributed systems. There are many books that look at particular methodologies for such systems, e.g. CSP,...

"This is an outstanding and well-written book whose aim is to introduce the reader to a broad range of material -- ranging from basic to relatively advanced -- without requiring any prior knowledge on the part of the reader other than calculus and mathematical maturity. That the book succeeds at this goal is quite an accomplishment! ...this...

This book provides an up-to-date and thorough grounding in the concepts of modern digital transmission. It is written in a pedagogic style, aimed at enabling readers to understand the fundamental concepts and processes. System descriptions are included, however the text also explains the basic techniques of transmission, and includes the...

The use of multiple antennas in most future wireless communication systems seems to be inevitable. Today, the main question is how to include multiple antennas and what are the appropriate methods for specific applications. The academic interest in space-time coding and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems has been ...

This book was written to support a short course in the second or third year of
an undergraduate computer science, software engineering, or software design
program. The prerequisites are fairly modest: some programming experience
(ideally in Ð¡ or Ð¡++ or a related language such as Java) and some exposure
to the most basic...

This book is targeted primarily toward engineers and engineering students of advanced
standing (sophomores, seniors and graduate students). Familiarity with a
computer language is required; knowledge of basic engineering mechanics is useful,
but not essential.

The text attempts to place emphasis on numerical methods, not...

The mathematical basis of signal processing and its many areas of application is the subject of this book. Based on a series of graduate-level lectures held at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, the volume emphasizes current challenges, new techniques adapted to new technologies, and certain recent advances in algorithms and...

A self-study reference and practice book for intermediate and more advanced learners of English. Covering all areas of language which students at this level find difficult, this substantially revised and updated book retains the clarity, simplicity and accessibility of the first edition, adding to it new and redesigned units and appendices,...

This book is addressed to business management and project managers as well as researchers who are evaluating the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) for tracking uniquely identified objects. In an effort to make RFID project management less of an art form and more of a science RFID Technology and Applications brings together pioneering...
