Arduino Robotics

This book was written for anyone interested in learning more about the Arduino and robotics in general. Though some projects are geared toward college students and adults, several early chapters cover robotics projects suitable for middle-school to high-school students. I will not, however, place an age restriction on the material in this book, since I have seen some absolutely awesome projects created by makers both young and old. Prerequisites Ultimately, you will need to be…

Advanced macroeconomics, 4th Edition

Macroeconomics is the study of the economy as a whole. It is therefore con­cerned with some of the most important questions in economics. Why are some countries rich and others poor? Why do countries grow? What are the sources of recessions and booms? Why is there unemployment, and what determines its extent? What are the sources of inflation? How do govern­ment policies affect output, unemployment, inflation, and growth? These and related questions are the subject…

Advances in Service Robotics

Industrial robots for working in factory environment were widely researched and lead enormous development in the 20th century. But the research subjects are moving to Service Robotics with the busy life style of humans in the 21st century. Humans have great concern in healthy life and do not want to get 3D jobs (difficult, dangerous and dirty) as well as re­peated simple jobs. For these reasons, Service Robots which do these jobs instead of humans…

Applied partial differential equations, Revised Edition

Partial differential equations are central to mathematics, whether pure or applied. They arise in mathematical models whose dependent variables vary continuously as functions of several independent variables, usually space and time. Their most striking attribute is their universality, a property which has enabled us to moti­vate every mathematical idea in this book by real-world examples from fluid or solid mechanics, electromagnetism, probability, finance and a host of other areas of application. Moreover, this applicability is…

Separation process principles: Chemical and Biochemical Operations, 3rd Edition

Separation Process Principles was first published in 1998 to provide a comprehensive treatment of the major separation operations in the chemical industry. Both equilibrium-stage and mass-transfer models were covered. Included also were chapters on thermodynamic and mass-transfer theory for sep­aration operations. In the second edition, published in 2006, the separation operations of ultrafiltration, microfiltration, leaching, crystallization, desublimation, evaporation, drying of solids, and simulated moving beds for adsorption were added. This third edition recognizes the growing…

Thermodynamics and Heat Powered Cycles: A Cognitive Engineering Approach

Due to the rapid advances in computer technology, intelligent computer software and multimedia have become essential parts of engineering education. Software integration with various media such as graphics, sound, video and animation is providing efficient tools for teaching and learning. A modern textbook should contain both the basic theory and principles, along with an updated pedagogy. Often traditional engineering thermodynamics courses are devoted only to analysis, with the expectation that students will be introduced later…

Linear Algebra with Applications, 7th Edition

This textbook is an introduction to the ideas and techniques of linear algebra for first- or second-year students with a working knowledge of high school algebra. The contents have enough flexibility to present a traditional introduction to the subject, or to allow for a more applied course. Chapters 1-4 contain a one- semester course for beginners whereas Chapters 5-9 contain a second semester course (see the Suggested Course Outlines below). The text is primarily about…

Pronounce it Perfectly in English, 2nd Edition

The goal of “perfect pronunciation” is not to take your personality out of your speech. Indeed, mannerisms that give hints of your origin are charming in English. The goal is, rather, to speak so that people listen to what you say, not how you say it. The goal is to be understood the first time you say something, and to be confident and proud of the way you speak. This book and tape are designed…

SARS- and Other Coronaviruses: Laboratory Protocols

The year 2003 was the year when the name “coronavirus” went around the world, somewhat further than the virus that sparked panic: severe acute respira­tory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV). It was spread rapidly by international, indeed transcontinental, travelers from its epicenter in China. The high mortality rate, around 10% among clinical cases, and the particularly high price paid by health care workers, spread fear globally. Public health facilities were stretched to the limit, and the effect…

Solved Problems in Physics for IIT JEE Advanced

The IIT JEE (Advanced) entrance examination is unique in terms of the various types of questions asked to determine a student’s depth of understanding of a subject. Keeping this in mind, this book has been designed to provide the students with sufficient questions to let them take the test confidently. The questions are given in the following six chapters, each based on a specific pattern: Objective Questions: Type 1 (with only one option correct), Objective…
