  • History of Art: A Survey of the Major Visual Arts from the Dawn of History to the Present Day (Hardback)

    History of Art: A Survey of the Major Visual Arts from the Dawn of History to the Present Day (Hardback)

    $11.99

    "The title of this book has a dual meaning: it refers both to the events that make the history of art, and to the scholarly discipline that deals with the events. Perhaps it is just as well that the record and its interpretation are thus designated by the same term. For the two cannot be separated, try as we may.—from the Preface and Acknowledgments by H. W. J. (H. W. Janson)

  • Statistics Made Simple: A Comprehensive Course for Self-Study and Review (Paperback)

    Statistics Made Simple: A Comprehensive Course for Self-Study and Review (Paperback)

    $1.25

    "We can summarize these meanings of the word 'statistics': 1. The public meaning of facts and figures, graphs and charts. The word is plural when used in this sense. 2. The subject itself, with terminology, methodology, and body of knowledge of its own. The word is singular when used in this sense. 3. Quantities calculated from the sample data. The word is plural when used in this sense."—from Chapter 1 What is Statistics?

    $6.99

    "In this text we intend to introduce the main concepts that are needed to understand the operation of existing integrated circuits and their applications in basic information-processing circuits. Our concentration on integrated circuits (ICs) is justified by the fact that they are used wherever it is feasible to do so in modern electronic systems" — Victor H. Grinich and Horace G. Jackson, Authors

  • Elementary Linear Algebra (Hardback)

    Elementary Linear Algebra (Hardback)

    $3.29

    "The text is designed to introduce some of the basic concepts and techniques of linear algebra and to make them accessible to freshmen and sophomores, many of whom are not mathematics majors." — Paul C. Shields, Author, 1967

    $3.49

    "This textbook presupposes a familiarity with the elements of chemistry, physics, and calculus." — Preface

  • Electronic Components and Measurements (Hardback)

    Electronic Components and Measurements (Hardback)

    $2.49

    "The purpose of this text is to provide the student with familiarity with basic electronic components and sufficient understanding of modern measurement equipment and techniques that he may intelligently undertake experimental investigations." — Preface, 1969

  • Electronic Circuits: Discrete and Integrated (Hardback)

    Electronic Circuits: Discrete and Integrated (Hardback)

    $5.99

    "The title of this text, Electronic Circuits: Discrete and Integrated, indicates that it will cover one particular facet of that tremendous field of endeavor known somewhat loosely today as electronics. ... Radio, television, computers, satellite communication systems, and automatic navigation systems are but a few types of electronic systems." — Introduction

  • Performance Analysis of Local Computer Networks (Hardback)

    Performance Analysis of Local Computer Networks (Hardback)

    $12.95

    "This is the first book to present a unified and self-contained treatment of local networks from the perspective of performance analysis. The performance models discussed are developed in as elementary a manner as possible, often using a heuristic rather than a rigorous approach." — About the Book, Dust Jacket

  • Statics (Hardback + Supplemental Problems Booklet)

    Statics (Hardback + Supplemental Problems Booklet)

    $4.95

    "The challenge and responsibility of modern engineering practice demand a high level of creative activity which, in turn, requires the support of strong analytical capability. The subject of engineering mechanics, which includes statics and dynamics, constitutes one of the cornerstones of analytical capability, and all engineers should have a basic background in this field of study." — J. L. Meriam, Author

  • Technical Drawing - Fifth Edition (Hardback)

    Technical Drawing - Fifth Edition (Hardback)

    $3.99

    "The extensive use of this text during the last thirty-three years in college classes and in industrial drafting rooms has encouraged the authors in their original aim, which was and still is to prepare a book which teaches the language of the engineer, and to keep it in step with the latest developments in industry." — Henry Cecil Spencer and Ivan Leroy Hill, Co-Authors, 1967

  • Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - First Edition (Hardback)

    Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - First Edition (Hardback)

    $4.29

    "The usefulness of switching theory is not restricted to engineers actively engaged in computer design. In fact, it is our contention that almost every design engineer in the field of electronics will have some opportunity to draw on the subject. Applications occur whenever information in communication, control, or instrumentation systems, for example, is handled in other than analog form." — Frederick J. Hill and Gerald R. Peterson, Authors

  • Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - Third Edition (Hardback)

    Introduction to Switching Theory and Logical Design - Third Edition (Hardback)

    $4.99

    "In the field of digital computers, there is an area somewhere between circuit design and system formulation which is usually identified as switching theory. Although this topic must be mastered by the digital computer engineer, it does not answer all of the questions concerning layout of an efficient digital computing system. The remaining questions, which are less susceptible to formalization, may be grouped under the heading 'Digital System Theory.'" — F. J. Hill and G. R. Peterson, Authors
