Learn how to program your nifty new $35 computer to make a web spider, a weather station, a media server, and more. This book explores how to make a variety of fun and even useful projects, from a web bot to search and download files to a toy to drive your pets insane.

Even if you're completely new to programming in...

Learn to use NATS and messaging as a solution for communication between services. The NATS project has been around since 2010, but it has become more popular in recent years due to how well it fits into the paradigm of cloud native applications and microservices architectures. It’s fast becoming a very attractive option thanks...

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,...

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...

This volume contains the proceedings of the AMS Special Sessions on Algorithmic Probability and Combinatories held at DePaul University on October 5-6, 2007 and at the University of British Columbia on October 4-5, 2008.

This volume collects cutting-edge research and expository on algorithmic probability and combinatories. It...

Electromagnetic wave scattering from random rough surfaces is an active, interdisciplinary area of research with myriad practical applications in fields such as optics, acoustics, geoscience and remote sensing.
Focusing on the case of random rough surfaces, this book presents classical asymptotic models used to describe...

This easy-to-read book demonstrates how a simple geometric idea reveals fascinating connections and results in number theory, the mathematics of polyhedra, combinatorial geometry, and group theory. Using a systematic paper-folding procedure it is possible to construct a regular polygon with any number of sides. This remarkable algorithm has...

This book presents an introduction to the principles of the fast Fourier transform
(FFT). It covers FFTs, frequency domain filtering, and applications to video and
audio signal processing.

As fields like communications, speech and image processing, and related areas
are rapidly developing, the FFT as one of the essential...

Focusing on mathematical methods in computer tomography, Image Processing: Tensor Transform and Discrete Tomography with MATLAB^{® }introduces novel approaches to help in solving the problem of image reconstruction on the Cartesian lattice. Specifically, it discusses methods of image processing along...

The present work briefly develops the lectures which we have given since 1930 to the engineering candidates who chose the section of electromechanics at the Faculte polytechnique de Mons.

A memoir by Steinmetz 1 emphasized the simplifying role that can be played by the geometric interpretation of complex numbers in the...

A FEW YEARS AGO some students and I were looking at a map that pinpointed the
locations of about loo cities. We asked ourselves, "Which of these cities are neighbors
of each other?" We knew intuitively that some pairs of cities were neighbors and others
were not; we wanted to find a formal mathematical characterization that...
