".... The book is a first class textbook and seems to be indispensable for everybody who has to teach combinatorial optimization. It is very helpful for students, teachers, and researchers in this area. The author finds a striking synthesis of nice and interesting...

This easy to read textbook provides an introduction to computer architecture, while focusing on the essential aspects of hardware that programmers need to know. The topics are explained from a programmer’s point of view, and the text emphasizes consequences for programmers. Divided in five parts, the book covers the basics of digital...

This book provides a fundamental knowledge of robotic grasping and fixturing (RGF) manipulation. For RGF manipulation to become a science rather than an art, the content of the book is uniquely designed for a thorough understanding of the RGF from the multifingered robot hand grasp, basic fixture design principle, and evaluating and planning...

"This book operates well as a succinct and readable introductory text for students studying process control, as well as for professionals undertaking industrial short courses or looking for a brief reference. It will also serve admirably as a useful teaching textbook...a book that informs, illuminates, and is sure to elicit lively...

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) continue to
evolve as new technologies are added to their capabilities.
The PLC started out as a replacement for hardwired
relay control systems. Gradually, various math and logic
manipulation functions were added. Today PLCs are the
controller of choice for the vast majority of automated...
