In the second edition of Electronics for Guitarists author Denton Dailey teaches the basic theory of operation and design principles of analog guitar signal processing circuits and amplifiers. The design and operation of common effects circuits such as tone controls, preamps, phasers, flangers, envelope followers, distortion and overdrives are covered, as are both solid-state amplifiers and power supplies. Written primarily for the guitarist, this book balances coverage of theoretical analysis and design while providing many examples of practical experimental circuits.

The main thrust of the material is analog circuitry, focusing on fundamental principles of transistors, integrated circuit and vacuum tube-based amplifier operation and theory, and operation of typical guitar signal processing effects circuits. Updated to the new edition include:

• New coverage of tone control circuits, MOSFETS and their applications as small-signal amplifiers, rail splitters and charge pumps, amplifiers using germanium transistors, and tube power amp design
• Expanded coverage of numerous subjects such as vacuum tube power supplies, the digital oscilloscope, Darlington and Sziklai transistors, and signal spectra and transfer function symmetry
• Additional examples of various circuits such as overdrive, distortion, chorus, delay, tremolo and auto-wah circuits as well as amplifier design

Electronics for Guitarists is ideal for the musician or engineer interested in analog signal processing. The material is also useful to general electronics hobbyists, technologists and engineers with an interest in guitar and music-related electronics applications.
Formal Techniques in Real-Time and Fault-Tolerant Systems focuses on the state of the art in formal specification, development and verification of fault-tolerant computing systems. The term `fault-tolerance' refers to a system having properties which enable it to deliver its specified function despite (certain) faults of its subsystem. Fault-tolerance is achieved by adding extra hardware and/or software which corrects the effects of faults. In this sense, a system can be called fault-tolerant if it can be proved that the resulting (extended) system under some model of reliability meets the reliability requirements.
The main theme of Formal Techniques in Real-Time and Fault-Tolerant Systems can be formulated as follows: how do the specification, development and verification of conventional and fault-tolerant systems differ? How do the notations, methodology and tools used in design and development of fault-tolerant and conventional systems differ?
Formal Techniques in Real-Time and Fault-Tolerant Systems is divided into two parts. The chapters in Part One set the stage for what follows by defining the basic notions and practices of the field of design and specification of fault-tolerant systems. The chapters in Part Two represent the `how-to' section, containing examples of the use of formal methods in specification and development of fault-tolerant systems.
The book serves as an excellent reference for researchers in both academia and industry, and may be used as a text for advanced courses on the subject.
