The twenty-first century has seen a breathtaking expansion of statistical methodology,
both in scope and in influence. “Big data,” “data science,” and “machine learning” have
become familiar terms in the news, as statistical methods are brought to bear upon the
enormous data sets of modern science...

Fully updated and expanded, this new edition provides students with an accessible introduction to marine chemistry. It highlights geochemical interactions between the ocean, solid earth, atmosphere and climate, enabling students to appreciate the interconnectedness of Earth's processes and systems and elucidates the huge variations in the...

"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 digital electronics text focuses on "how to" design, build, operate and adapt data acquisition systems. The material begins with basic logic gates and ends with a 40 KHz voltage measurer. The approach aims to cover a minimal number of topics in detail. The data acquisition circuits described communicate with a host computer...

Error-correcting codes constitute one of the key ingredients in achieving the high degree of reliability required in modern data transmission and storage systems. This book introduces the reader to the theoretical foundations of error-correcting codes, with an emphasis on Reed-Solomon codes and their derivative codes. After reviewing linear...

This book provides the context, architectures, case studies, and intelligent analysis that will help the reader grasp the rapidly evolving subject of mobile commerce. May explains the technological aspects of mobile commerce to business decision makers and the business models to the technologists who design and build these electronic systems. It...

Henry Frederick Baker (1866-1956) was a renowned British mathematician specialising in algebraic geometry. First published between 1922 and 1925, this six-volume work provides a detailed insight into the geometry which was developing at the time of publication. Volume 1 describes the foundations of projective geometry.

We live in a digital age. The proliferation of digital technology, and the convergence of computing and communication devices, has transformed the way in which we socialise and do business. While overwhelmingly positive, there has also been a dark side to these developments. Proving the maxim that crime follows opportunity, virtually every...

This expanded and thoroughly revised edition of Thomas H. Lee's acclaimed guide to the design of gigahertz RF integrated circuits features a completely new chapter on the principles of wireless systems. The chapters on low-noise amplifiers, oscillators and phase noise have been significantly expanded as well. The chapter on architectures...

'Light-Emitting Diodes is an excellent examination of the physics and technology of semiconductor LEDs. The narration is simple and direct, and the book is well referenced for those seeking a deeper understanding of the topic.' Physics Today

Revised and fully up-dated, the second edition of this graduate textbook offers a...
