Provides aspiring engineers with a solid introduction to probability theory and stochastic processes
This book is based on the premise that engineers use probability as a modeling tool, and that probability can be applied to the solution of engineering problems. Engineers and students studying probability and random processes also need to analyze data, and thus need some knowledge of statistics. This book is designed to provide students with a thorough grounding in probability and stochastic processes, demonstrate their applicability to real-world problems, and introduce the basics of statistics. The book's clear writing style and homework problems make it ideal for the classroom or for self-study.
* Good and solid introduction to probability theory and stochastic processes
* Logically organized; writing is presented in a clear manner
* Choice of topics is comprehensive within the area of probability
* Ample homework problems are organized into chapter sections
Expert Shell Scripting (Expert's Voice in Open Source)
I learned the basics of programming when I was in school; I learned how to shell-script by example.
I’ve met and worked with many system administrators and other *NIX folks, each of whom has their own bag of tricks when it comes to managing a system, interacting with their environment, or coding a script. It’s...
Creep and Fracture of Ice
This is the first complete account of the physics of the creep and fracture of ice, and their interconnectivity. It investigates the deformation of low-pressure ice, which is fundamental to glaciers, polar ice sheets and the uppermost region of icy moons of the outer Solar System. The book discusses ice structure and its defects, and...
