This book provides an introduction to modern homotopy theory through the lens of higher categories after Joyal and Lurie, giving access to methods used at the forefront of research in algebraic topology and algebraic geometry in the twenty-first century. The text starts from scratch - revisiting results from classical homotopy theory such as...

Controversy over human evolution remains widespread. However, the human genome project and genetic sequencing of many other species have provided myriad precise and unambiguous genetic markers that establish our evolutionary relationships with other mammals. Human Evolution: Genes, Genealogies and Phylogenies identifies and explains these...

With a design-centric approach, this textbook bridges the gap between fundamental analog electronic circuit textbooks and more advanced RF IC design texts. The major issues that must be taken into account when combining analog and digital circuit building blocks are covered, together with the key criteria and parameters that are used to...

Suitable for senior undergraduates and beginning graduate students in mathematics, this book is an introduction to algebraic number theory at an elementary level. Prerequisites are kept to a minimum, and numerous examples illustrating the material occur throughout the text. References to suggested readings and to the biographies of...

Understanding damage and failure of composite materials is critical for reliable and cost-effective engineering design. Bringing together materials mechanics and modeling, this book provides a complete guide to damage, fatigue and failure of composite materials. Early chapters focus on the underlying principles governing composite damage,...

'What's going to happen next?' Time series data hold the answers, and Bayesian methods represent the cutting edge in learning what they have to say. This ambitious book is the first unified treatment of the emerging knowledge-base in Bayesian time series techniques. Exploiting the unifying framework of probabilistic graphical...

This morning my newspaper contained the obituary of Sir Alan Hodgkin, Nobel
Laureate together with Andrew Huxley and John Eccles, in physiology and medicine.
What has this to do with our interest in electronics? Well, the prize was
awarded for the elucidation of the mechanism of the propagation of electrical
impulses along neural...

Fundamentals of Engineering Programming with C and Fortran is a beginner's guide to problem solving with computers that shows how to quickly prototype a program for a particular engineering application. The book's side-by- side coverage of C and Fortran is unique. Myler emphasizes the importance of developing programming skills in C...

When we wrote Introductory Microbiology some very hard decisions had to be
made concerning the contents of the book. We were constrained by the style
of the Studies in Biology series to write a book of no more than 200 pages. In
the end, we decided that students needed a description of what microorganisms
were and how they can...

The two parts of this book treat probability and statistics as mathematical disciplines and with the same degree of rigour as is adopted for other branches of applied mathematics at the level of a British honours degree. They contain the minimum information about these subjects that any honours graduate in mathematics ought to know. They are...

This text began as notes for a course in statistical computing for second year actuarial and statistical students at the University of Western Ontario. Both authors are interested in statistical computing, both as support for our other research and for its own sake. However, we have found that our students were not learning the right sort of...

Computational experiments on algorithms can supplement theoretical analysis by showing what algorithms, implementations, and speed-up methods work best for specific machines or problems. This book guides the reader through the nuts and bolts of the major experimental questions: What should I measure? What inputs should I test? How do I...
