Introduction to Discrete Event SystemsAs its title suggests, this book is about a special class of systems which in recent decades have become an integral part of our world. Before getting into the details of this particular class of systems, it is reasonable to start out by simply describing what we mean by a “system”, and by presenting the fundamental concepts associated...   Tensors: The Mathematics of Relativity Theory and Continuum MechanicsThis book emerged from courses taught at the University College of Dublin, CarnegieMellon University and mostly at Simon Fraser University. This is a modern introduction to the theory of tensor algebra and tensor analysis. It discusses tensor algebra in Chapters 1 and 2. Differential manifold is introduced in Chapter 3. Tensor analysis,...   Biomechanical Systems TechnologyBecause of rapid developments in computer technology and computational techniques, advances in a wide spectrum of technologies, coupled with crossdisciplinary pursuits between technology and its application to human body processes, the field of biomechanics continues to evolve. Many areas of significant progress include dynamics of musculoskeletal... 

Damage and Interfacial Debonding in Composites (Studies in Applied Mechanics)
This book represents thirteen papers that are based on the presentations made in the five
session symposium on "Damage and Interfacial Debonding in Composites" on the occasion
of the 32nd Society of Engineering Science Meeting; held in New Orleans, Louisiana,
October 29  November 1, 1995. The five sessions were mainly in the...   Fundamentals of Structural Engineering
Fundamentals of Structural Engineering provides a balanced, seamless treatment of both classic, analytic methods and contemporary, computerbased techniques for conceptualizing and designing a structure. The book?s principle goal is to foster an intuitive understanding of structural behavior based on problem solving experience for...   Mechanics of Microelectromechanical SystemsThis 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... 

The Physics of Information Technology"...throughout the text, Gershenfeld retains much of the conversational tone and spontaneity of a lecture. At its best, this makes for enjoyable reading, with interesting tidbits and asides that enliven the discussions....Gershenfeld's book will be valuable for physical scientists looking for an enjoyable introduction to the information...
