This book presents comprehensive coverage of linear control systems along with an introduction to digital control systems. It is designed for undergraduate courses in control systems taught in departments of electrical engineering, electronics and instrumentation, electronics and communication, instrumentation and control, and computer science and engineering.

The text discusses the important concepts of control systems, transfer functions and system components. It describes system stability, employing the Hurwitz–Routh stability criterion, root locus technique, Bode plot, and polar and Nyquist plots. In addition, this student-friendly book features in-depth coverage of controllers, compensators, state-space modelling and discrete time systems.

KEY FEATURES

•Includes a brief tutorial on MATLAB in an appendix to help students learn how to use it for the analysis and design of control systems.

•Provides an abundance of worked-out examples and review questions culled from university examination papers.

•Gives answers to selected chapter-end questions at the end of the book.

The fourth edition of this highly readable and well-received book presents the subject of measurement and instrumentation systems as an integrated and coherent text suitable for a one-semester course for undergraduate students of Instrumentation Engineering, as well as for instrumentation course/paper for Electrical/Electronics disciplines. Modern scientific world requires an increasing number of complex measurements and instruments. The subject matter of this well-planned text is designed to ensure that the students gain a thorough understanding of the concepts and principles of measurement of physical quantities and the related transducers and instruments. This edition retains all the features of its previous editions viz. plenty of worked-out examples, review questions culled from examination papers of various universities for practice and the solutions to numerical problems and other additional information in appendices. NEW TO THIS EDITION Besides the inclusion of a new chapter on Hazardous Areas and Instrumentation(Chapter 15), various new sections have been added and existing sections modified in the following chapters: Chapter 3 Linearisation and Spline interpolation Chapter 5 Classifications of transducers, Hall effect, Piezoresistivity, Surface acoustic waves, Optical effects (This chapter has been thoroughly modified) Chapter 6 Proximitys sensors Chapter 8 Hall effect and Saw transducers Chapter 9 Proving ring, Prony brake, Industrial weighing systems, Tachometers Chapter 10 ITS-90, SAW thermometer Chapter 12 Glass gauge, Level switches, Zero suppression and Zero elevation, Level switches Chapter 13 The section on ISFET has been modified substantially

"We owe Claude Shannon a lot, and Soni & Goodman’s book takes a big first step in paying that debt." —San Francisco Review of Books

"Soni and Goodman are at their best when they invoke the wonder an idea can instill. They summon the right level of awe while stopping short of hyperbole." —Financial Times

"Jimmy Soni and Rob Goodman make a convincing case for their subtitle while reminding us that Shannon never made this claim himself." —The Wall Street Journal

"Soni and Goodman have done their research...A Mind at Play reveals the remarkable human behind some of the most important theoretical and practical contributions to the information age." —Nature

"A Mind at Play shows us that you don't need to be a genius to learn from a genius. Claude Shannon's inventive, vibrant life demonstrates how vital the act of play can be to making the most of work." —Inc.

“A charming account of one of the twentieth century’s most distinguished scientists…Readers will enjoy this portrait of a modern-day Da Vinci.” —Fortune

In their second collaboration, biographers Jimmy Soni and Rob Goodman present the story of Claude Shannon—one of the foremost intellects of the twentieth century and the architect of the Information Age, whose insights stand behind every computer built, email sent, video streamed, and webpage loaded. Claude Shannon was a groundbreaking polymath, a brilliant tinkerer, and a digital pioneer. He constructed the first wearable computer, outfoxed Vegas casinos, and built juggling robots. He also wrote the seminal text of the digital revolution, which has been called “the Magna Carta of the Information Age.” In this elegantly written, exhaustively researched biography, Soni and Goodman reveal Claude Shannon’s full story for the first time. With unique access to Shannon’s family and friends, A Mind at Play brings this singular innovator and always playful genius to life.

The development of HIV protease inhibitors (PIs) and their inclusion in highly active antiretroviral therapies (HAARTs) marked the beginning of a treatment breakthrough in the management of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The HAART treatment regimen can cut HIV viral load to undetectable levels. Nonetheless, the rapid emergence of HIV drug resistance has continued to seriously compromise long-term treatment options for HIV-infected patients. Our structure-based design strategy to develop PIs that specifically target the enzyme's backbone atoms has resulted in a number of very potent inhibitors with superior drug resistance profiles. Of particular note, our development of stereochemically defined bis(tetrahydrofuranyl) urethane as a high-affinity P2 ligand has led to the development of exceedingly potent inhibitors. One of these inhibitors, darunavir, has shown exceptional potency against the HIV-1 virus and superior activity against multi-PI-resistant viral strains. Our backbone binding strategy was corroborated with detailed crystal structure analyses of darunavir-bound protease complexes which revealed a series of conserved interactions between the inhibitor and key backbone atoms of HIV-1 protease. Darunavir first received accelerated US Food and Drug Administration approval in 2006 for highly treatment-experienced patients with little therapeutic options. It has now become a leading PI in the fight against HIV infection and drug resistance.
