Switching theory and logic design provide mathematical foundations and tools for digital system design that is an essential part in the research and development in almost all areas of modern technology. The vast complexity of modern digital systems implies that they can only be handled by computer aided design tools that are built on sophisticated mathematical models. Fundamentals of Switching Theory and Logic Design is aimed at providing an accessible introduction to these mathematical techniques that underlie the design tools and that are necessary for understanding their capabilities and limitations.
As is typical to many disciplines a high level of abstraction enables a unified treatment of many methodologies and techniques as well as provides a deep understanding of the subject in general. The drawback is that without a hands-on touch on the details it is difficult to develop an intuitive understanding of the techniques. We try to combine these views by providing hands-on examples on the techniques while binding these to the more general theory that is developed in parallel. For instance, the use of vector spaces and group theory unifies the spectral (Fourier-like) interpretation of polynomial, and graphic (decision diagrams) representations of logic functions, as well as provides new methods for optimization of logic functions.
Consequently, Fundamentals of Switching Theory and Logic Design discusses the fundamentals of switching theory and logic design from a slightly alternative point of view and also presents links between switching theory and related areas of signal processing and system theory. It also covers the core topics recommended in IEEE/ACM curricula for teaching and study in this area. Further, it contains several elective sections discussing topics for further research work in this area
AutoCAD is the industry standard for two-dimensional construction drawings, and this manual was created specifically to help designers master it. Neither overly simplistic nor excessively technical,Digital Drawing for Designers: A Visual Guide to AutoCAD 2012 teaches by relating to what architects and interior designers understand best: the visual world. Beginning with the building blocks of drawing (lines, circles, and arcs), the book progresses through architectural graphic standards, enabling students to create drawings that effectively communicate their design ideas. Advanced features such as annotative dimensions, annotative blocks, express tools, and linking drawings (XREFs) are also covered. Instructions are illustrated using language and concepts from manual drafting, facilitating a smooth transition to the digital environment for all designers. New learners will appreciate the step-by-step lessons and visual illustrations, while experienced design professionals can easily access material to refresh their knowledge. Clear, concise, and above all visual, this AutoCAD guide speaks directly to the needs of architects and interior designers.
AIAA's #1 Selling Textbook-50,000 Aerospace Engineers Can't Be Wrong! Winner of the AIAA Summerfield Book Award and the Aviation/Space Writers Association Award of Excellence. This best-selling textbook presents the entire process of aircraft conceptual design-from requirements definition to initial sizing, configuration layout, analysis, sizing, optimization, and trade studies. Widely used in industry and government aircraft design groups, Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach is also the design text at major universities around the world. A virtual encyclopedia of engineering, it is known for its completeness, easy-to-read style, and real-world approach to the process of design. Special Features: More than 900 pages of design methods, illustrations, tips, explanations, and equations; Overviews of lofting, subsystems, maintainability, producibility, vulnerability, and stealth; Concepts and calculation methods for aerodynamics, stability and control, propulsion, structures, weights, performance, and cost; Coverage of conventional and unconventional design methods, including UAV, canard, tandem wing, C-wing, oblique wing, asymmetrical, multi-fuselage, wing-in-ground-effect, and more; VTOL, helicopter, New Topics: Advice on how to become an aircraft designer; Electric aircraft, batteries, fuel cells, and solar cells; Green airplanes, including biofuels, GTL, hydrogen, methane, and nuclear; Active aeroelastic wing and advanced tailless concepts; Enhanced learning materials, including chapter opening summaries with set-the-stage art, descriptive sidebar definitions and tips, and what-we-learned chapter wrap-ups. RDSwin Software RDSwin allows engineering students to take a aircraft design from first conceptual layout through functional analysis, leading to performance, range, weight, and cost results. By automating the "grunt work" of vehicle analysis, RDSwin makes enough time for the student to truly learn design. RDSwin integrates Design Layout (CAD), aerodynamics, weights, propulsion (jet & prop), stability & control, sizing, range, performance, and cost analysis. All new, all-original code (even the CAD module), all optimized for aircraft conceptual design and analysis. A true 32-bit Windows* Application, with Windows pulldown menus, popup boxes, fonts, graphics, dialog boxes, clipboard read/write, Undo/Redo, and more. RDSwin outputs analysis results and program data to popup boxes, text files, Windows printers, or directly to your spreadsheet, word processor, or internet browser.

A collection of autobiographical essays by laureates from different management disciplines, which focus on the factors and forces that influenced their professional and personal development. Each essay is accompanied by a photograph and complete bibliography of each individual's work.
Gracefully Design is a book of hope. It outlines the life's journey of a very shy, quiet girl who shows that God is always with her through good times and bad. The author shows that her main source of inspiration in life comes directly only from the Lord; this book would not be possible without the Lord's divine grace, mercy, and favor which she is grateful and humbled to be gracefully designed.
