Book Description
Analog Filters, Second Edition covers four major fundamental types of analog filters - passive, op amp-RC, switched-capacitor, and operational transconductance amplifier-capacitor (OTA-C). (The last of these types is the major addition in the Second Edition). The emphasis is on the fundamental principles and theory of analog filters. It is targeted toward readers in telecommunications, signal processing, electronics, controls, instrumentation, bioengineering, etc. It introduces the reader to the elegant theory in the development of analog filters. Although some of the mechanical steps for generating filters are covered, the book stresses the mathematical bases and the scholastic ingenuity of analog filter theory. It should be helpful to nonspecialist electrical engineers to gain a background perspective and some basic...

Analog Electronics with Op-amps : A Source Book of Practical Circuits (Electronics Texts for Engineers and Scientists)
Anthony Peyton, Vincent Walsh
052133604X
August 12, 1993
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This book presents a collection of analog electronic circuits based on the operational amplifier; the workhorse of analog electronics. The discussion is supported by a wealth of practical detail that will enable the reader to speedily select, build, and test a desired circuit. The book is primarily intended to be a practical reference work and readers will discover an extensive and invaluable source of functional and established analog circuits, from integrators and differentiators to logarithmic amplifiers, from filters to instrumentation amplifiers. The circuits are grouped according to function, and the approach is to build up slowly from "textbook" examples toward a series of practical, workable circuits.

Book Description
Most security books are targeted at security engineers and specialists. Few show how build security into software. None breakdown the different concerns facing security at different levels of the system: the enterprise, architectural and operational layers. Security Patterns addresses the full spectrum of security in systems design, using best practice solutions to show how to integrate security in the broader engineering process. Essential for designers building large-scale systems who want best practice solutions to typical security problems Real world case studies illustrate how to use the patterns in specific domains

Hardcover
·
 
Review
"Kirschen and Strbac have written an excellent textbook on this important area … rightly emphasizes the broad principles underlying all the main electricity markets around the world." (International Journal of Electrical Engineering Education, 42:3, 2006)

Book Description
Interest in power systems economics is gaining momentum with the recent power supply shortages in America and the rising cost of fossil fuels. The involvement of independent power generators, brokers and distributors has changed the way in which power systems operate. Kirschen and Strbac use a combination of traditional engineering techniques and fundamental economics to address the long-term problems of power system development in a competitive environment. Power system engineers, operators, planners...

Book Description
Written for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in analog filter design and signal processing, Design of Analog Filters integrates theory and practice to provide a modern and practical "how-to" approach to design. A complete revision of Mac Van Valkenburg's classic work,
Analog Filter Design (1982), this text builds on the presentation and style of its predecessor, updating it to meet the needs of today's engineering students. Reflecting recent developments in the field and emphasizing intuitive understanding, it provides readers with an up-to-date introduction and
design guidelines and also helps them to develop a "feel" for analog circuit behavior.
Design of Analog Filters moves beyond the simple treatment of active filters built with opamps to discuss the more recent design of filters...

Managing Geographic Information System Projects
William E. Huxhold
0195078691
January 1995
Textbook Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Most of the current publications on geographic information systems (GIS) focus on its mechanics, technology, and project-specific applications. This much-needed book, however, introduces the reader to GIS implementation from a management and organizational perspective. GIS is becoming
increasingly popular and is evolving from a mapping tool used for support functions to a technology capable of redesigning land administration. In other sectors, information technology has had a dramatic effect on operations. This book examines those cases, and applies them to GIS paradigm,
stressing that GIS technology itself does not cause improvements in operational efficiency and effectiveness, but enables changes that can facilitate these improvements. The bulk of the book guides the reader through the necessary frameworks...

·
 
Book Review
Ask the computer any question and it will figure out how to give you a correct answer. At least, that's always been the science-fiction scenario, a dream still far removed from real-life computing. But the growth of "intelligent agent" software appears to be bringing that scenario closer to reality. Is it all just hype, as many believe? Alper Caglayan and Colin Harrison examine the realities of today's intelligent agents and discover that while we're still a long way from the Hollywood picture of business computing, today's very real agents are already powerful business tools. They examine agents for Internet, Intranet and desktop use, evaluating processes that users can customize or automate. They look at agents that seek and screen information, sort e-mail, simulate human conversation, streamline processes for...
