A thoroughly enjoyable sampler of fascinating mathematical problems and their solutions. (Science )

Each chapter is a gem of mathematical exposition.... [The book] will not only stretch the imagination of the amateur, but it will also give pleasure to the sophisticated mathematician. ...

Unlike wired networks where transmitters have no effect on receivers other than their own, in wireless networks we are limited by interference. The traditional routing methods are not optimal any more when it comes to a wireless medium. The maximum data rate on each link depends not only on the power in that link but also on the transmitted...

One of the most valuable tools acquired in a university education, college algebra is essential for courses from the sciences to computing, engineering to mathematics. It can help you do better on placement exams, even before college, and it's useful in solving the computations...

In recent years, much has transpired in the field of remote sensing and, in
particular, polarization. Polarization is an outgrowth of multiple, highly
accurate photometric measurements. Plane polarization is the difference
between precision photometric measurements in two mutually perpendicular
directions. Circular polarization...

The purpose of this book is to provide a first course in Projective Geometry for
undergraduate majors in mathematics and for prospective teachers of high school
geometry. For the former it will furnish an introduction to the important concept of
projective spaces; for the latter it will introduce a more general geometry from which,...

Text stresses use of matrices in study of transformations of the plane. Familiarizes reader with role of matrices in abstract algebraic systems and illustrates its effective use as mathematical tool in geometry. Includes proofs of most theorems. Answers to odd-numbered exercises.

Layout generation is an important topic in IC design. For digital circuits a lot of research
has been conducted in this area, resulting in a large variety of books and layout generation
tools. However, with the ever increasing frequencies, we are facing now significant analog
types of artifacts in the IC, introduced during the...

"The rationale for the second edition is solid, and the proposed changes are extensive and comprehensive, covering the most important advances in the field since the first edition was published. The authors' credentials are impeccable. I used the first edition extensively, both as a reference for my research and for my graduate course on...

The IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) is the exciting new technology that will merge the Internet with the cellular world. It will make Internet technologies such as the web, email, instant messaging, presence, and...

[A]ll of the appers of this volume have a consistent scientific value. - Analele Stiintifice al Universitatii al I. Cuza

Celebrating the work of world-renowned mathematician Sam B. Nadler, Jr., this reference examines the most recent advances in the analysis of continua. The book offers articles on the contributions of Professor...

I opened my series editor manuscript of The Handbook of Contraception: A Guide for Practical Management, edited by Drs. Donna Shoupe and Siri Kjos, on a tiny plane on the way to giving a lecture in Albany, NY. I expected to peruse the ma- script, and found that I could not put it down. The Handbook of Contraception: A Guide for Practical...
