Computational Engineering by Debney, PeterWe are on the verge of a new generation of technology and innovation. Finite Element Analysis is being linked parametrically with CAD; artificial intelligence and machine learning are being applied to everyday engineering tasks. What does today's graduate (and those with more experience too) need to know about these 'engineering assistants' in order to harness their full potential?
Author takes the reader on a practical, theoretical, and philosophical journey; balancing a complex subject with a fresh, engaging, and often humorous style. Forewords from Chris Wise, Tristram Carfrae, and Jon Leach precede chapters that discuss: Design (including parametric design), Modelling (and its problems), Analysis (basics and methods/linear, nonlinear, and dynamic), Optimisation, AI and machine learning, The future of engineering software. An extensive reference list supports the text.

Introduction to Algorithms by Thomas H. Cormen; Charles E. Leiserson; Ronald L. Rivest; Clifford SteinSome books on algorithms are rigorous but incomplete; others cover masses of material but lack rigor. Introduction to Algorithms uniquely combines rigor and comprehensiveness. The book covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers. Each chapter is relatively self-contained and can be used as a unit of study. The algorithms are described in English and in a pseudocode designed to be readable by anyone who has done a little programming. The explanations have been kept elementary without sacrificing depth of coverage or mathematical rigor.The first edition became a widely used text in universities worldwide as well as the standard reference for professionals. The second edition featured new chapters on the role of algorithms, probabilistic analysis and randomized algorithms, and linear programming. The third edition has been revised and updated throughout. It includes two completely new chapters, on van Emde Boas trees and multithreaded algorithms, substantial additions to the chapter on recurrence (now called "Divide-and-Conquer"), and an appendix on matrices. It features improved treatment of dynamic programming and greedy algorithms and a new notion of edge-based flow in the material on flow networks. Many new exercises and problems have been added for this edition. As of the third edition, this textbook is published exclusively by the MIT Press.

Logic Design by Chen Wai-Kai Staff; Wai-Kai Chen (Editor)In this volume drawn from the VLSI Handbook, the focus is on logic design and compound semiconductor digital integrated circuit technology. Expert discussions cover topics ranging from the basics of logic expressions and switching theory to sophisticated programmable logic devices and the design of GaAs MESFET and HEMT logic circuits. Logic Design emphasizes the key concepts, models, and equations that enable design engineers to analyze, design, and predict the behavior of large-scale systems. Highlights include a comparison of different design approaches, over 250 illustrations, and a multitude of detailed logic design examples.

Superconductivity by Reinhold Kleiner; Werner Buckel; Rudolf Huebener (Translator)The third edition of this proven text has been developed further in both scope and scale to reflect the potential for superconductivity in power engineering to increase efficiency in electricity transmission or engines. The landmark reference remains a comprehensive introduction to the field, covering every aspect from fundamentals to applications, and presenting the latest developments in organic superconductors, superconducting interfaces, quantum coherence, and applications in medicine and industry. Due to its precise language and numerous explanatory illustrations, it is suitable as an introductory textbook, with the level rising smoothly from chapter to chapter, such that readers can build on their newly acquired knowledge. The authors cover basic properties of superconductors and discuss stability and different material groups with reference to the latest and most promising applications, devoting the last third of the book to applications in power engineering, medicine, and low temperature physics. An extensive list of more than 350 references provides an overview of the most important publications on the topic. A unique and essential guide for students in physics and engineering, as well as a reference for more advanced researchers and young professionals.
