This newly revised edition of the classic book, Design of RF and Microwave Amplifiers and Oscillators (Artech House, 1999) has been updated to include expanded derivations and problem sets, helping to make the material even more accessible and easier to master. You also get new material on power amplifiers (class A, B, AB, F, and E...

This important new book explains the fundamentals of electric propulsion for spacecraft and describes in detail the physics and characteristics of the two major electric thrusters in use today, ion and Hall thrusters. The authors provide an introduction to plasma physics in order to allow readers to understand the models and derivations used...

This new edition is intended for a one semester course in optics for juniors and seniors in science and engineering. It uses scripts from Maple, MathCad, Mathematica, and MATLAB to provide a simulated laboratory where students can learn by exploration and discovery instead of passive absorption. The text covers all the standard...

This book is intended for those who need to understand how a switching power supply works. I intend to provide enough information so you can intelligently specify a custom off-line supply from a power supply manufacturer. You should also gain enough information to be able to design a DC–DC converter. I have included basic analog design...

Over the last few years there have been several important changes in the undergraduate curricula in both Engineering and Physics departments. In engineering schools there is an increased emphasis on design type courses which squeeze the time students have for fundamental courses. In physics departments there is an increased need to make a stronger...

A unique introduction for general readers to the underlying concepts of nanotechnology, covering a wide spectrum ranging from biology to quantum computing. The material is presented in the simplest possible way, including a few mathematical equations, but not mathematical derivations. It also outlines as simply as possible the major...

This text provides a basic treatment of modern electric machine analysis that gives readers the necessary background for comprehending the traditional applications and operating characteristics of electric machines - as well as their emerging applications in modern power systems and electric drives, such as those used in hybrid and electric...

Now considered an essential reference in the game industry, 3D Game Engine Design is the first book to go beyond basic descriptions of algorithms and accurately demonstrate the complex engineering process required to design and build a real-time graphics engine to support physical realism. Faster algorithms will always win out over...

Research on bone remodeling has resulted in much new information and has led to improvements in design and biomedical practices. Mechanics of Cellular Bone Remodeling: Coupled Thermal, Electrical, and Mechanical Field Effects presents a unified exploration of recent advances, giving readers a sound understanding of...

Implement proven design techniques for control systems without having to master any advanced mathematics. Using an effective step-by-step approach, this book presents a number of control system design techniques geared toward readers of all experience levels. Mathematical derivations are avoided, thus making the methods accessible to developers...
