UMTS is the wireless network technology behind the rollout of Third Generation (3G) mobile telecoms networks which will bring video, music and internet services to the cellphone and a range of electronic products.
Chris Braithwaite and Mike Scott use their extensive experience of training engineers across Europe, and their backgrounds in working with Nokia, Ericsson and Orange to deliver a uniquely practical guide written from the perspective of the engineer and network planner. This guide is a valuable addition to the literature on UMTS which to date has been dominated by theoretical and reference works. The authors consider each of the key topics of UMTS/WCDMA and 3G rollout in terms of Coverage, Capacity and Quality of Service- the key considerations for all engineers and managers working in 3G telecoms.

*A real-world design guide with cookbook-style instructions and rules of thumb, not another R&D-level book or crib to the standards.
*Covers the hot engineering issues in UMTS planning, design and implementation.
*UMTS is the natural evolutionary choice for operations of GSM networks, currently representing a customer base of more than 747 million end users in over 180 countries and representing over 70% of today's digital wireless market[source: GSM Association]

In Shakespeare's Comedies: All That Matters, Mike Scott explores and explains the secrets that have made Shakespeare's comedies so enduring that they continue to be performed, watched and studied by millions of people every year.

Professor Scott focuses in turn on The Comedy of Errors, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Twelfth Night, As You Like It and The Merchant of Venice and builds an argument based around Shakepeare's use of language to prompt the audience's imagination and thought. This original little book, and its companion volume Shakespeare's Tragedies, fills a major gap in the market for a book which will enable readers to understand a Shakesperean play in the context of its ouevre.

This accessible and readable book will appeal both to students and general readers, giving a fascinating intoruduction to Shakespeare's comedies - and what matters most about them.

"'Comedy is a serious business' says Michael Scott - it is, and his splendid short book takes it very seriously as it should, but remains lively and wonderfully readable withall." Dr Drummond Bone, Master of Balliol College, Oxford

"An authoritative and expert overview of the entire fields of Shakespearean Comedy and Tragedy combined with persuasive and eminently accessible close readings of particular plays. Michael Scott brings to the task and infectious enthusiasm and deep knowledge of their theatrical, literary and cultural significance and he provides a clear and compelling endorsement of their continued relevance. These books provide an exemplary introduction to the complex world of Shakespearean drama, full of insights, observations, and ideas, all of which are brought firmly to bear on the abiding question of what these plays mean for us today." John Drakakis, Professor of English at the University of Stirling

"Everything is so clear - no academic jargon, for instance. With Shakespeare's Comedies, even the most critical scholars can learn something... as well as students at the start of their encounter with Shakespeare and the same for regular theatre goers. To address all three at once... has to be an accomplishment... from the Introduction to the Conclusion... to the last sentence: (the) reader will readily grasp why this series of books is called All That Matters." Professor M.L.Wine, Evanston, USA

The book, in its Second Edition, continues to provide a comprehensive treatment of signals and systems commencing from an elementary level and going on to a thorough analysis of mathematical tools such as Fourier transform, Laplace transform, Z-transform and Discrete-time Fourier transform. The concepts of convolution and correlation and their relationship have been explained in a clear and lucid manner. Both continuous-time and discrete-time signals and systems have been covered, and thoroughly supported with adequate number of explained examples.The book is intended for the BE/BTech students of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Information Communication Technology (ICT), Telecommunication Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. NEW TO THIS EDITION • A new chapter on MATLAB programming for generation of continuous-time and discrete-time series is added. • MATLAB solutions have been given for stability testing of discrete-time systems. • Sections on simple electronic systems realization have been added in existing Chapter 6. • More solved examples, problems and multiple choice questions, have been added in almost every chapter to reinforce the understanding of the theory.
