Arduino is a tool, a community, and a way of thinking that is affecting
how we use and understand technology. It has rekindled a love and
understanding for electronics for many people, including myself, who felt
that electronics was something that they had left behind at school.
Arduino is tiny circuit board that has huge potential. It can be used to blink
a Morse-code signal using a single LED or to control every light in a building,
depending on how far you take it. Its capabilities are limited only by your
Arduino is also providing a new, practical approach to technical education,
lowering the entry level for those wanting to use electronics to complete small
projects and, I hope, encouraging you to read further to take on big ones.
A huge and ever-growing community of Arduin-ists has emerged — users and
developers who learn from each other and contribute to the open source
philosophy by sharing the details of their projects. Arduin-ists and their supporters
with their open source attitude are responsible for the huge popularity
Arduino is more than just a “bit of kit”; it’s a tool. A piece of technology that
makes understanding and using today’s technology easier.
So if the prospect of understanding the limitless possibilities of technology
doesn’t sound interesting to you, please put this book down and back away.
Otherwise, read on!

Spectral Methods in MATLAB (Software, Environments, Tools)
This is the only book on spectral methods built around MATLAB programs. Along with finite differences and finite elements, spectral methods are one of the three main technologies for solving partial differential equations on computers. Since spectral methods involve significant linear algebra and graphics they are very suitable for the high... Algorithms for Sparsity-Constrained Optimization (Springer Theses)
This thesis demonstrates techniques that provide faster and more accurate solutions to a variety of problems in machine learning and signal processing. The author proposes a "greedy" algorithm, deriving sparse solutions with guarantees of optimality. The use of this algorithm removes many of the inaccuracies that occurred with the use...
