Ideal for a one-semester course, this concise textbook covers basic electronics for undergraduate students in science and engineering. Beginning with the basics of general circuit laws and resistor circuits to ease students into the subject, the textbook then covers a wide range of topics, from passive circuits through to semiconductor-based analog circuits and basic digital circuits. Using a balance of thorough analysis and insight, readers are shown how to work with electronic circuits and apply the techniques they have learnt. The textbook's structure makes it useful as a self-study introduction to the subject. All mathematics is kept to a suitable level, and there are several exercises throughout the book. Password-protected solutions for instructors, together with eight laboratory exercises that parallel the text, are available online at www.cambridge.org/Eggleston.
Mechanics of Microelectromechanical Systems This book offers a comprehensive coverage to the mechanics of
microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), which are analyzed from a
mechanical engineer’s viewpoint as devices that transform an input form of
energy, such as thermal, electrostatic, electromagnetic or optical, into output
mechanical motion (in the case of...
Structural Analysis with Finite Elements
Structural Analysis with Finite Elements, 2nd Edition provides a solid introduction to the foundation and the application of the finite element method in structural analysis. It offers new theoretical insight and practical advice on why finite element results are 'wrong,' why support reactions are relatively accurate, why stresses at...
The Higher Arithmetic: An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers 'Although this book is not written as a textbook but rather as a work for the general reader, it could certainly be used as a textbook for an undergraduate course in number theory and, in the reviewer's opinion, is far superior for this purpose to any other book in English.' From a review of the first edition in Bulletin of the American...
The Circuit Designer's Companion, Third Edition
When I was first approached to produce a third edition of The Circuit Designer’s Companion, I was at first
reluctant to “mess with it”. It is rare to have a companion book that is not just a textbook, or a handbook,
but is seen in many respects to contain all the essential information that a “real” circuit... The Mathematics of Signal Processing (Cambridge Texts in Applied Mathematics)
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...
