Summary:
The third edition of Hodges and Jackson's Analysis and Design of Digital Integrated Circuits has been thoroughly revised and updated by a new co-author, Resve Saleh of the University of British Columbia. The new edition combines the approachability and concise nature of the Hodges and Jackson classic with a complete overhaul to bring the book into the 21st century. The new edition has replaced the emphasis on Bipolar with an emphasis on CMOS. The book focuses on the latest CMOS technologies and uses standard deep submicron models throughout the book. The material on memory has been expanded and updated. As well the book now includes more on SPICE simulation and new problems that reflect recent technologies. The emphasis of the book is on design, but it does not neglect analysis and has as a goal to provide enough information so that a student can carry out analysis as well as be able to design a circuit. This book provides an excellent and balanced introduction to digital circuit design for both students and professionals.

Summary:
"Respected authors Phil Allen and Doug Holberg bring you the third edition of their popular textbook, CMOS Analog Circuit Design. Working from the forefront of CMOS technology, Phil and Doug have combined their expertise as engineers and academics to present a cutting-edge and effective overview of the principles and techniques for designing circuits. Their two main goals are: * to mix the academic and practical viewpoints in a treatment that is neither superficial nor overly detailed * to teach analog integrated circuit design with a hierarchically organized approach Most of the circuits, techniques, and principles presented in CMOS Analog Circuit Design come directly from the authors' industrial experience, making the book a valuable resource for both practicing engineers and students taking courses in analog electronics or CMOS analog design. The trademark approach of Phil and Doug's textbook is its design recipes, which take readers step-by-step through the creation of real circuits, explaining and demystifying complex design problems. The book provides detailed coverage of often-neglected areas and deliberately leaves out bipolar analog circuits, since CMOS is the dominant technology for analog integrated circuit design. Appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduate students with background knowledge in basic electronics--including biasing, modeling, circuit, analysis, and frequency response--CMOS Analog Circuit Design, Third Edition, presents a complete picture of design (including modeling, simulation, and testing) and enables readers to undertake the design of an analog circuit that can be implemented by CMOS technology. New to This Edition * An updated Chapter 2 that reflects the latest technology on twin-well shallow-trench-isolation CMOS * Expanded coverage of such topics as frequency response, feedback, distortion, noise, bootstrapped voltage references, and photosensitivity * A new appendix on layout techniques"--

Summary:
Bestselling author Niva Tro has always believed “the behavior of matter is determined by the properties of molecules and atoms” to be the most important discovery in scientific knowledge. This idea is the entire factor for his seminal new text—Chemistry: Structure and Properties. Dr. Tro emphasizes the relationship between structure and properties, establishes a unique approach to teaching chemistry by presenting atomic and bonding theories early in the text, and stresses key themes throughout. The book is organized to present chemistry as a logical, cohesive story from the microscopic to the macroscopic, so students can fully grasp the theories and framework behind the chemical facts. Every topic has been carefully crafted to convey to students that the relationship between structure and properties is the thread that weaves all of chemistry together. While developed independently of other Tro texts, Chemistry: Structure and Properties incorporates the author’s vivid writing style, chemical rigor, dynamic multi-level images, and tested features. His consistent conceptual focus and step-by-step problem-solving framework encourages students to think through processes rather than simply memorize content.

Summary:
Clinical Chemistry is a comprehensive textbook covering the area of medical science variously known as chemical pathology, clinical chemistry, medical biochemistry and clinical biochemistry. The biochemical processes and physiological interrelationships, of tissues, organs and molecules are discussed in the context of disease processes and related to the diagnosis, monitoring, and management of disease. Also included are analytical processes, such as immunoassay, and how these relate to clinical practice. Although the emphasis of this book is clinical biochemistry, some chapters include sections on haematology, radiology and microbiology where this helps in the understanding of disease processes. The increasing use of the techniques of molecular biology and genetics in the investigation of disease is acknowledged also by appropriate inclusion of these disciplines in a number of chapters. Standard International (SI) units of measurement are used throughout, but for tests where non-SI units are in common use as well as SI units both sets of units are quoted.

Summary:
Private, voluntary standards shape almost everything we use, from screw threads to shipping containers to e-readers. They have been critical to every major change in the world economy for more than a century, including the rise of global manufacturing and the ubiquity of the internet. In Engineering Rules, JoAnne Yates and Craig N. Murphy trace the standard-setting system's evolution through time, revealing a process with an astonishingly pervasive, if rarely noticed, impact on all of our lives. This type of standard setting was established in the 1880s, when engineers aimed to prove their status as professionals by creating useful standards that would be widely adopted by manufacturers while satisfying corporate customers. Yates and Murphy explain how these engineers' processes provided a timely way to set desirable standards that would have taken much longer to emerge from the market and that governments were rarely willing to set. By the 1920s, the standardizers began to think of themselves as critical to global prosperity and world peace. After World War II, standardizers transcended Cold War divisions to create standards that made the global economy possible. Finally, Yates and Murphy reveal how, since 1990, a new generation of standardizers has focused on supporting the internet and web while applying the same standard-setting process to regulate the potential social and environmental harms of the increasingly global economy. Drawing on archival materials from three continents, Yates and Murphy describe the positive ideals that sparked the standardization movement, the ways its leaders tried to realize those ideals, and the challenges the movement faces today. Engineering Rules is a riveting global history of the people, processes, and organizations that created and maintain this nearly invisible infrastructure of today's economy, which is just as important as the state or the global market.

Summary:
Wulfsberg’s new Inorganic Chemistry is ideal for use as the primary textbook in the junior-, senior- and introductory graduate-level sequence of inorganic chemistry courses. With a clear descriptive approach that seamlessly integrates bioinorganic, environmental, geological, and medicinal material into each chapter, there is much to like about this contemporary text. Also refreshing is an empirical approach to problems in which the text emphasizes observations before moving on to theoretical models. Because Part I of the book explains chemical concepts and reactions using Valence Bond theory, it may be used by students who have not had physical chemistry; thus Part I of the book is also recommended for use in a one-semester introductory course. Part II covers all traditional topics of an advanced inorganic course for chemistry majors including symmetry, molecular orbital theory, transition metal chemistry, organometallic chemistry, inorganic materials and mechanisms, and bioinorganic chemistry.

The Hidden Messages In Water explores water's susceptibility to human words, emotions and thoughts. Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto has been researching this new field of science by freezing samples of water that have been exposed to either positive or negative words, emotions and music. Through photographs Dr. Emoto has found that water exposed to positive influences produces beautiful, perfectly formed crystals, while water exposed to negativity produces ugly, malformed crystals. Because the worls and our bodies are both composed of 70per cent water, the power to change the essence of water means that humans have the power to evoke change on a global or personal scale, by way of water.
