Physics concepts are explained in animator’s terms, relating concepts specifically to animation movement and appearance.
Complex mathematical concepts are broken down into clear steps you can follow to solve animation problems quickly and effectively.
Bonus companion website at www.physicsforanimators.com offers additional resources, including examples in movies and games, links to resources, and tips on using physics in your work.
Uniting theory and practice, author Michele Bousquet teaches animators how to swiftly and efficiently create scientifically accurate scenes and fix problem spots, and how and when to break the laws of physics. Ideal for everything from classical 2D animation to advanced CG special effects, this book provides animators with solutions that are simple, quick, and powerful.
New and updated edition of this authoritative andcomprehensive reference to the field of satellite communicationsengineering
Building on the success of previous editions, SatelliteCommunications Systems, Fifth Edition covers the entire fieldof satellite communications engineering from orbital mechanics tosatellite design and launch, configuration and installation ofearth stations, including the implementation of communicationslinks and the set-up of the satellite network. This book provides acomprehensive treatment of satellite communications systemsengineering and discusses the technological applications. Itdemonstrates how system components interact and details therelationship between the system and its environment. The authorsdiscuss the systems aspects such as techniques enabling equipmentand system dimensioning and state of the art technology forsatellite platforms, payloads and earth stations.
