LabVIEW(R), a product of National Instruments Corporation, is an interactive, hands-on, object-oriented software environment used in instrument control, communications, and a wide range of other applications. It uses graphical language in creating a virtual instrument (VI), which can acquire and process data, display results on a graph, control another instrument and/or an external system, and perform simulation and many other tasks. Because a VI is a software file, it can be easily reconfigured to meet the requirements of a new specification; this ability to alter the functionality of an instrument is an advantage that was never before available to the user. "Applications in LabVIEW" is a comprehensive text that includes -a wide range of data acquisition, analysis, and simulation experiments using LabVIEW software. Topics are presented ranging from an introduction to the basic tools and features of LabVIEW to in-depth, practical experiments with the software. Users are required in many of the experiments to modify existing software in order to achieve a specific measurement, a procedure that will help them better understand the use of LabVIEW.
