The Handbook of Engineering Design aims to give accurate information on design from past publications and past papers that are relevant to design. The book is divided into two parts. Part 1 deals with stages in design as well as the factors to consider such as economics, safety, and reliability; engineering materials, its factors of safety, and the choice of material; stress analysis; and the design aspects of production processes. Part 2 covers the expansion and contraction of design; the preparation of technical specification; the design audit; and the structure and organization of design offices. The text is recommended to engineers who are in need of a guide that is easy to understand and concise.

Praise for the Series"Mandatory for academic libraries supporting computer science departments."-CHOICESince its first volume in 1960, Advances in Computers has presented detailed coverage of innovations in computer hardware, software, theory, design, and applications. It has also provided contributors with a medium in which they can explore their subjects in greater depth and breadth than journal articles usually allow. As a result, many articles have become standard references that continue to be of sugnificant, lasting value in this rapidly expanding field.

I attended the Caltech Seminar Day on 16th May 09 and heard a lecture: Quantum Information Science presented by Professor J Preskill. His lecture had a number of slides showing how the three dimensions of Quantum states function. He mentioned Quantum Computers as the next step in computer science from the classical transistor based digital computers which have made such a change in the life of modern day humans. Since I have a deep interest in computer science based on my professional experience: designing Avionics systems for military aircraft which were the first to use digital computers, Teaching Computer Science as an adjunct assistant professor to graduate students, Designing and fabricating small digital computers in a small company I decided I needed to learn about Quantum Computers and where research is going in this important new technology. The way I discovered the status of Quantum Computer is using the Google & Yahoo search engines. I was happy that Indiana University and Caltech have active Quantum Computer Research programs in progress. Jon Schiller holds a BS in Physics from Caltech and a PhD from the University of Southern California in EE & Mathematics. He has authored: 21st Century Cosmology

Parallel Computers 2

Architecture, Programming and Algorithms

Since the publication of the first edition, parallel computing technology has gained considerable momentum. A large proportion of this has come from the improvement in VLSI techniques, offering one to two orders of magnitude more devices than previously possible. A second contributing factor in the fast development of the subject is commercialization. The supercomputer is no longer restricted to a few well-established research institutions and large companies. A new computer breed combining the architectural advantages of the supercomputer with the advance of VLSI technology is now available at very attractive prices. A pioneering device in this development is the transputer, a VLSI processor specifically designed to operate in large concurrent systems. Parallel Computers 2: Architecture, Programming and Algorithms reflects the shift in emphasis of parallel computing and tracks the development of supercomputers in the years since the first edition was published. It looks at large-scale parallelism as found in transputer ensembles. This extensively rewritten second edition includes major new sections on the transputer and the OCCAM language. The book contains specific information on the various types of machines available, details of computer architecture and technologies, and descriptions of programming languages and algorithms. Aimed at an advanced undergraduate and postgraduate level, this handbook is also useful for research workers, machine designers, and programmers concerned with parallel computers. In addition, it will serve as a guide for potential parallel computer users, especially in disciplines where large amounts of computer time are regularly used.

Using Computers in History

A Practical Guide to Data Presentation, Analysis and the Internet

Using Computers in History is designed to introduce students to historical computing through practical workshop exercises. With topics such as the pattern of nineteenth century emigration from the UK, the performance of the American and German economies in the 1930s and the Lancashire cotton industry, Lloyd-Jones and Lewis explain and illustrate the possible uses of the computer for the historian. Using Computers in History: * raises awareness of the use of computers as an important tool for the historian * provides a practical introduction to basic computer terminology * includes high quality diagrams of the screen displays which should appear at each stage * examines the use of spreadsheets and how to design and work with them * discusses the different software packages available, concentrating on Microsoft Excel 4 * includes spreadsheet exercises based around a range of historical data sets * explores the use of databases * shows how to construct them * gives guidelines for further study * prompts students to apply the skills they have learnt to a number of examples
