    Digital Logic and Microprocessor Design with VHDL
    Publisher: Cengage Learning | 2005-02-18 | ISBN: 0534465935 | Pages: 608 | PDF | 5.6 MB

    This book will teach students how to design digital logic circuits, specifically combinational and sequential circuits. Students will learn how to put these two types of circuits together to form dedicated and general-purpose microprocessors. This book is unique in that it combines the use of logic principles and the building of individual components to create data paths and control units, and finally the building of real dedicated custom microprocessors and general-purpose microprocessors. After understanding the material in the book, students will be able to design simple microprocessors and implement them in real hardware.

    Practical Guide to RF-MEMS
    Publisher: Wiley-VCH | 2013 | ISBN: 3527335641 | Pages: 372 | PDF | 10.43 MB

    Closes the gap between hardcore–theoretical and purely experimental RF–MEMS books. The book covers, from a practical viewpoint, the most critical steps that have to be taken in order to develop novel RF–MEMS device concepts. Prototypical RF–MEMS devices, both including lumped components and complex networks, are presented at the beginning of the book as reference examples, and these are then discussed from different perspectives with regard to design, simulation, packaging, testing, and post–fabrication modeling. Theoretical concepts are introduced when necessary to complement the practical hints given for all RF–MEMS development stages.

    The People's City: African Life in Twentieth-Century Durban
    Publisher: Univ of Natal Pr | 1996-06 | ISBN: 0869809342 | Pages: 348 | PDF | 26.41 MB

    This is a collection of essays on African life in 20th-century Durban. It brings alive a vibrant city culture of crowds and violence, militant women, beer brewing, ricksha-pulling, shebeens and popular music and dance. Histories of Lamontville, Inanda and Clermont complement studies of workers, trade union organisation and political resistance. This is an engrossing picture of the city, which evolved the 'Durban system' of control and exploitation, prototype for the rest of South Africa. And it shows why such a system could not endure.

    Qumran Hebrew: An Overview of Orthography, Phonology, and Morphology
    Publisher: Society of Biblical Literature | 2014-03-03 | ISBN: 1589839315 | Pages: 328 | PDF | 4.51 MB

    A unique study of the Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls
    In Qumran Hebrew, Reymond examines the orthography, phonology, and morphology of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Short sections treat specific linguistic phenomena and present a synopsis and critique of previous research. Reymond's approach emphasizes problems posed by scribal errors and argues that guttural letters had not all weakened but instead were weak in specific linguistic environments, texts, or dialects. Reymond illustrates that certain phonetic shifts (such as the shift of yodh to aleph and the opposite shift of aleph to yodh) occur in discernible linguistic contexts that suggest this was a real phonetic phenomenon.

    Views and Beliefs in Mathematics Education
    Publisher: Springer Spektrum | 2015-05-06 | ISBN: 3658096136 | Pages: 242 | PDF | 9.03 MB

    International mathematics education researchers give a differentiated overview of views and beliefs of both teachers and students. Beliefs about how to teach mathematics have a high impact on the instructional practice of teachers. In the same way, views and beliefs about mathematics are an essential factor to explain achievement and performance of students. The 19th MAVI conference added a variety of research perspectives to the international discussions of mathematics related beliefs. The authors of this volume have compiled a rich selection of research results, which may further enhance the discussion of MAVI topics in the future.

    Fractional Partial Differential Equations and Their Numerical Solutions
    Publisher: World Scientific Publishing Co | 2015 | ISBN: 9814667048 | Pages: 348 | PDF | 2.4 MB

    This book aims to introduce some new trends and results on the study of the fractional differential equations, and to provide a good understanding of this field to beginners who are interested in this field, which is the authors' beautiful hope. This book describes theoretical and numerical aspects of the fractional partial differential equations, including the authors' researches in this field, such as the fractional Nonlinear Schrödinger equations, fractional Landau Lifshitz equations and fractional Ginzburg Landau equations. It also covers enough fundamental knowledge on the fractional derivatives and fractional integrals, and enough background of the fractional PDEs.

    Introduction to Liquid Crystals: Chemistry and Physics (Liquid Crystals Book Series)
    Publisher: CRC Press | 1997-03-19 | ISBN: 0748406433 | Pages: 324 | PDF | 7.90 MB

    This text relies on only introductory level physics and chemistry as the foundation for understanding liquid crystal science. Liquid crystals combine the material properties of solids with the flow properties of fluids. As such they have provided the foundation for a revolution in low- power, flat-panel display technology LCDs. In this book, the essential elements of liquid crystal science are introduced and explained from the perspectives of both the chemist and the physicist. The text begins with an historical account of the discovery of liquid crystals and continues with a description of how different phases are generated and how different molecular architectures affect liquid crystalline properties. The rest of the book is concerned with understanding and explaining the properties of the various types of liquid crystals, and in the final part of the book, the technology of LCDs is discussed and illustrated.

    Reinventing Juvenile Justice
    Publisher: SAGE Publications, Inc | 1993-05-05 | ISBN: 080394828X | Pages: 224 | PDF | 13.60 MB

    A painful view of the current state of juvenile justice in the United States is presented in this volume which asks whether the 'children's court' has outlived its usefulness. As pressure builds to handle more children in adult courts and to consign them to adult prisons, the authors explore alternatives to the custodial treatment of juveniles and suggest how the juvenile justice system can, and should, be reformed.

    The Insanity File: The Case of Mary Todd Lincoln
    Publisher: Southern Illinois University Press | 1993-03-31 | ISBN: 0809318954 | Pages: 224 | PDF | 44.17 MB

    In 1875 Robert Todd Lincoln caused his mother, Mary Todd Lincoln, to be committed to an insane asylum. Based on newly discovered manuscript materials, this book seeks to explain how and why.
    Speculating on the reasons for her mental condition, the authors note that Mrs. Lincoln suffered an extraordinary amount of tragedy in a relatively few years. Three of her four sons died very young, and Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. After the death of her son Willie she maintained a darkly rigorous mourning for nearly three years, prompting the president to warn her that excessive woe might force him to send her to "that large white house on the hill yonder," the government hospital for the insane.

    Popular Trials: Rhetoric, Mass Media, and the Law
    Publisher: University Alabama Press | 1993 | ISBN: 0817306986 | Pages: | PDF | 20.60 MB

    Contemporary scholarship illustrates the law’s increasingly powerful role in American life legal education, in turn, has focused on the problems and techniques of communication. This book addresses these interests through critical study of eight popular trials: the 17th-century trial of Dr. Henry Sacheverell, and the 20th-century trials of Scopes, the Rosenbergs, the Chicago Seven, the Catonsville Nine, John Hinckley, Claus von Bulow, and San Diego Mayor Larry Hedgecock. Such trials spark major public debates, become symbols of public life, and legitimize particular beliefs and institutions. Despite high visibility and drama, however, the popular trial has not received sufficient study as persuasive event. Lying at the intersection of the institutional practices of law and the mass media, the popular trial has confounded study according to the conventional assumptions of scholarship in both law and communication studies.
