The first all-in-one reference for the beet-sugar industry
Beet-Sugar Handbook is a practical and concise reference for technologists, chemists, farmers, and research personnel involved with the beet-sugar industry. It covers:
* Basics of beet-sugar technology
* Sugarbeet farming
* Sugarbeet processing
* Laboratory methods of analysis
The book also includes technologies that improve the operation and profitability of the beet-sugar factories, such as:
* Juice-softening process
* Molasses-softening process
* Molasses-desugaring process
* Refining cane-raw sugar in a beet-sugar factory
The book ends with a review of the following:
* Environmental concerns of a beet-sugar factory
* Basics of science related to sugar technology
* Related tables for use in calculations
Written in a conversational, engaging style, the book is user friendly and practical in its presentation of relevant scientific and mathematical concepts for readers without a significant background in these areas. For ease of use, the book highlights important notes, defines technical terms, and presents units in both metric and British systems. Operating problem-solving related to all stations of sugarbeet processing, frequent practical examples, and given material/energy balances are other special features of this book.

From ASICs to SOCs: A Practical Approach
The term SOC (system-on-a-chip) has been used in the electronic industry over the last few years. However, there are still a lot of misconceptions associated with this term. A good number of practicing engineers don't really understand the differences between ASICs and SOCs. The fact that the same EDA tools are used for both...
Moments and Moment Invariants in Pattern Recognition
Automatic object recognition has become an established discipline in image analysis. Moments and moment invariants play a very important role as features in invariant recognition. They were introduced to the pattern recognition community almost 50 years ago and the mathematical background they utilized is even older, originating from the...
Cluster Analysis for Data Mining and System Identification
Data clustering is a common technique for statistical data analysis, which is used in many fields, including machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition, image analysis and bioinformatics. Clustering is the classification of similar objects into different groups, or more precisely, the partitioning of a data set into subsets...
