Good math skills are indispensable for all engineers regardlessof their specialty, yet only a relatively small portion of the maththat engineering students study in college mathematics courses isused on a frequent basis in the study or practice of engineering.That's why Essential Math Skills for Engineers focuses ononly these few critically essential math skills that students needin order to advance in their engineering studies and excel inengineering practice.
Essential Math Skills for Engineers features concise,easy-to-follow explanations that quickly bring readers up to speedon all the essential core math skills used in the daily study andpractice of engineering. These fundamental and essential skills arelogically grouped into categories that make them easy to learnwhile also promoting their long-term retention. Among the key areascovered are:
Algebra, geometry, trigonometry, complex arithmetic, anddifferential and integral calculus
Simultaneous, linear, algebraic equations
Linear, constant-coefficient, ordinary differentialequations
Linear, constant-coefficient, difference equations
Linear, constant-coefficient, partial differential equations
Fourier series and Fourier transform
Mathematics of vectors
With the thorough understanding of essential math skills gainedfrom this text, readers will have mastered a key component of theknowledge needed to become successful students of engineering. Inaddition, this text is highly recommended for practicing engineerswho want to refresh their math skills in order to tackle problemsin engineering with confidence.
As digital devices continue to be produced at increasingly lowercosts and with higher speeds, the need for effectiveelectromagnetic compatibility (EMC) design practices has becomemore critical than ever to avoid unnecessary costs in bringingproducts into compliance with governmental regulations. The SecondEdition of this landmark text has been thoroughly updated andrevised to reflect these major developments that affect bothacademia and the electronics industry. Readers familiar with theFirst Edition will find much new material, including:
* Latest U.S. and international regulatory requirements
* PSpice used throughout the textbook to simulate EMC analysissolutions
* Methods of designing for Signal Integrity
* Fortran programs for the simulation of Crosstalk supplied on aCD
* OrCAD(r) PSpice(r) Release 10.0 and Version 8 Demo Editionsoftware supplied on a CD
* The final chapter on System Design for EMC completelyrewritten
* The chapter on Crosstalk rewritten to simplify themathematics
Detailed, worked-out examples are now included throughout the text.In addition, review exercises are now included following thediscussion of each important topic to help readers assess theirgrasp of the material. Several appendices are new to this editionincluding Phasor Analysis of Electric Circuits, The ElectromagneticField Equations and Waves, Computer Codes for Calculating thePer-Unit-Length Parameters and Crosstalk of MulticonductorTransmission Lines, and a SPICE (PSPICE) tutorial.
Now thoroughly updated, the Second Edition of Introduction toElectromagnetic Compatibility remains the textbook of choice foruniversity/college EMC courses as well as a reference for EMCdesign engineers.
An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all theproblems in the book is available from the Wiley editorialdepartment.
Inductance is an unprecedented text, thoroughlydiscussing "loop" inductance as well as the increasingly important"partial" inductance. These concepts and their proper calculationare crucial in designing modern high-speed digital systems.World-renowned leader in electromagnetics Clayton Paul provides theknowledge and tools necessary to understand and calculateinductance.
Unlike other texts, Inductance provides all the detailsabout the derivations of the inductances of various inductors, aswell as:
Fills the need for practical knowledge of partial inductance,which is essential to the prediction of power rail collapse andground bounce problems in high-speed digital systems
Provides a needed refresher on the topics of magnetic fields
Addresses a missing link: the calculation of the values of thevarious physical constructions of inductors—both intentionalinductors and unintentional inductors—from basicelectromagnetic principles and laws
Features the detailed derivation of the loop and partialinductances of numerous configurations of current-carryingconductors
With the present and increasing emphasis on high-speed digitalsystems and high-frequency analog systems, it is imperative thatsystem designers develop an intimate understanding of the conceptsand methods in this book. Inductance is a much-neededtextbook designed for senior and graduate-level engineeringstudents, as well as a hands-on guide for working engineers andprofessionals engaged in the design of high-speed digital andhigh-frequency analog systems.
Until as recently as some ten years ago, digital system clockspeeds and data rates were in the hundreds of megahertz (MHz)range. Prior to that time, the “lands” on printedcircuit boards (PCBs) that interconnect the electronic modules hadlittle or no impact on the proper functioning of those electroniccircuits. Today, the clock and data speeds have moved intothe low gigahertz (GHz) range.
