Differential Equations and Linear Algebra 2nd Ed.
Second Edition highlights include new discussions direction fields and Euler’s method for first order differential equations; row space and column space of a matrix, and the rank-nullity theorem; non-linear systems of differential equations, including phase plane analysis; and change of variables for differential equations. Now features a chapter on second order linear differential equations that is not based on vector space methods to gives users a firmer grasp of the differential equation concept early on, and also on the solution techniques for this important class
of differential equations.

Handbook of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments
Handbook of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments is a comprehensive presentation of the latest developments in the burgeoning research area of ambient intelligence and smart environments. Written by leading international experts, this seminal reference organizes all major concepts, theories, methodologies, trends, and challenges into a coherent, unified repository.
Engineering Thermodynamics: A Computer Approach (SI Units Version), 3rd Ed.
This version presents the material using SI Units and has ample material on SI conversion, steam tables, and a Mollier diagram. The accompanying CD includes a fully functional version of QuickField (widely used in industry), as well as numerous demonstrations and simulations with MATLAB, and other third party software.
Reliability and Risk Issues in Large Scale Safety-critical Digital Control Systems
Reliability and Risk Issues in Large Scale Safety-critical Digital Control Systems provides some important coverage of reliability issues and their corresponding countermeasures in the field of large-scale digital control systems, from the hardware and software in digital systems to the
human operators who supervise the overall process of large-scale systems. Unlike other books which examine theories and issues in individual fields, this book reviews important problems and countermeasures across the fields of hardware and system reliability, software reliability, verification and validation, digital systems, human factors engineering and human reliability analysis.
Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach
The new edition features an early introduction of the first law of thermodynamics, separate coverage of closed systems energy analysis, combined coverage of control volume mass and energy analysis, and revised coverage of compressible flow. Over 300 comprehensive problems have been added to this physically intuitive text, many of which come from industrial applications.

Instead, you’ll find exactly what you need to get the job done.
Digital Control and Estimation: A Unified Approach
This dichotomy is largely historical in nature and may not be the best approach from a pedagogical viewpoint. For example, shift operators and 2-transforms, which form the basis of most discrete time analyzes. are inappropriate when used with fast sampling and have no
continuous time counterpart. Our philosophy, as presented in this book, is that the continuous and discrete cases can, and should, be understood under a common
Acoustic MIMO Signal Processing
Telecommunication systems and human-machine interfaces start employing multiple microphones and loudspeakers in order to make conversations and interactions more lifelike, hence more efficient. This development gives rise to a variety of acoustic signal processing problems under multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) scenarios, encompassing distant speech acquisition, sound source localization and tracking, echo and noise control, source separation and speech dereverberation, and many others. Acoustic MIMO Signal Processing is divided into two major parts – the theoretical and the practical.
