Noise and Signal Interference in Optical Fiber Transmission Systems: An Optimum Design Approach - Stefano Bottacchi

A comprehensive reference to noise and signal interference in optical fiber communications.

Noise and Signal Interference in Optical Fiber Transmission Systems is a compendium on specific topics within optical fiber transmission and the optimization process of the system design. It offers comprehensive treatment of noise and intersymbol interference (ISI) components affecting optical fiber communications systems, containing coverage on noise from the light source, the fiber and the receiver. The ISI is modeled with a statistical approach, leading to new useful computational methods. The author discusses the subject with the help of numerous applications and simulations of noise and signal interference theory. 

Key features: 
Complete all-in-one reference on the subject for engineers and designers of optical fiber transmission systems 
Discusses the physical principles behind several noise contributions encountered in the optical communications systems design, including contributions from the light source, the fiber and the receiver 
Covers the theory of the ISI for the binary signal, as well as noise statistics 
Discusses the theory and the mathematical models of the numerous noise components (such as optical noise, photodetection noise and reflection noise) 
Introduces the frequency description of the ISI and provides new calculation methods based on the characteristic functions 
Provides useful tools and examples for optimum design of optical fiber transmission networks and systems.

This book will serve as a comprehensive reference for researchers, R&D engineers, developers and designers working on optical transmission systems and optical communications. Advanced students in optical communications and related fields will also find this book useful.

Mechanical Engineer’s Handbook - Dan B. Marghitu

The Mechanical Engineer’s Handbook was developed and written specifically to fill a need for mechanical engineers and mechanical engineering students throughout the world. With over 1000 pages, 550 illustrations, and 26 tables the Mechanical Engineer’s Handbook is very comprehensive, yet affordable, compact, and durable. The Handbook covers all major areas of mechanical engineering with succinct coverage of the definitions, formulas, examples, theory, proofs, and explanations of all principle subject areas. The Handbook is an essential, practical companion for all mechanical engineering students with core coverage of nearly all relevant courses included. Also, anyone preparing for the engineering licensing examinations will find this handbook to be an invaluable aid. Useful analytical techniques provide the student and practicing engineer with powerful tools for mechanical design.

This book is designed to be a portable reference with a depth of coverage not found in “pocketbooks” of formulas and definitions and without the verbosity, high price, and excessive size of the huge encyclopedic handbooks. If an engineer needs a quick reference for a wide array of information, yet does not have a full library of textbooks or does not want to spend the extra time and effort necessary to search and carry a six pound handbook, this book is for them.

* Covers all major areas of mechanical engineering with succinct coverage of the definitions, formulae, examples, theory, proofs and explanations of all principle subject areas

* Boasts over 1000 pages, 550 illustrations, and 26 tables

* Is comprehensive, yet affordable, compact, and durable with strong ‘flexible’ binding

* Possesses a true handbook ‘feel’ in size and design with a full colour cover, thumb index, cross-references and useful printed endpapers.


Steel Heat Treatment: Metallurgy and Technologies - George E. Totten

One of two self-contained volumes belonging to the newly revised Steel Heat Treatment Handbook, Second Edition, this book examines the behavior and processes involved in modern steel heat treatment applications. Steel Heat Treatment: Metallurgy and Technologies presents the principles that form the basis of heat treatment processes while incorporating detailed descriptions of advances emerging since the 1997 publication of the first edition. Revised, updated, and expanded, this book ensures up-to-date and thorough discussions of how specific heat treatment processes and different alloy elements affect the structure and the classification and mechanisms of steel transformation, distortion of properties of steel alloys. The book includes entirely new chapters on heat-treated components, and the treatment of tool steels, stainless steels, and powder metallurgy steel components. Steel Heat Treatment: Metallurgy and Technologies provides a focused resource for everyday use by advanced students and practitioners in metallurgy, process design, heat treatment, and mechanical and materials engineering.


Handbook of Thermal Engineering

To be successful in the international marketplace, corporations must have access to the latest developments and most recent experimental data. Traditional handbooks of heat transfer stress fundamental principles, analytical approaches to thermal problems, and elegant solutions to classical problems.

Peer reviewed articles-selected on the basis of their current relevance to the development of new products-provide in-depth treatment of applications in diverse fields, such as: 
Energy conservation 
Food processing 
Measurement techniques in fluid flow and heat transfer 
You'll find complete, up-to-date information on the latest developments in the field, including: 
Recent advances in thermal sciences 
Microthermal design 
Compact heat exchangers 
Thermal optimization 
Exergy analysis 

A unique, one-stop resource for all your thermal engineering questions From the basics of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat and mass transfer, to comprehensive treatment of current applications, the latest computational tools, to data tables for the properties of gases, liquids, and solids, The CRC Handbook of Thermal Engineering has it all!

Antennas - John Daniel Kraus

This text is for the course on antennas offered to the senior/graduate level by most electrical engineering departments. It will also appeal to practicing engineers working on antenna development. The text explains both the basic theory of antennas and its application to practical designs. It provides comprehensive coverage and is replete with interesting worked examples and challenging problem sets. The revision represents a thorough updating of material and now includes BASIC programs which can be used for antenna design and computational techniques.

Neural Networks: A Systematic Introduction

Neural networks are a computing paradigm that is finding increasing attention among computer scientists. In this book, theoretical laws and models previously scattered in the literature are brought together into a general theory of artificial neural nets. Always with a view to biology and starting with the simplest nets, it is shown how the properties of models change when more general computing elements and net topologies are introduced. Each chapter contains examples, numerous illustrations, and a bibliography. The book is aimed at readers who seek an overview of the field or who wish to deepen their knowledge. It is suitable as a basis for university courses in neurocomputing.
