Commercial Aviation Safety
Alexander T. Wells and Clarence C. RodriguesIt's a new world in commercial aviation safety. This fourth edition of the premier resource in the field is thoroughly revised and updated to serve the safety needs of commercial aviation in the United States. This text offers the best guidance on today's security concerns on the ground and in the air, changes in systems and regulations, new maintenance and flight technologies, and recent accidents. "Commercial Aviation Safety" integrates the latest research on factors in accidents into the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and systematic reference on the principles and regulatory practices of commercial aviation safety and security.With the introduction of co-author Clarence C. Rodrigues, "Commercial Aviation Safety" broadens its field of study to include regulatory information on OSHA, EPA, and TSA. Ideal for students and professionals alike, the fourth edition covers: regulatory information on OSHA, EPA, and TSA relevant to aviation; aircraft and air traffic control technologies; airport safety; runway incursions - one of the FAA's top 5 safety priorities; security regulations leading up to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and beyond; aviation security control technologies; airline safety program management; safety organizational structure of a major air carrier; free flight; NTSB accident data and its analysis; OSHA injury and illness statistics; accident modeling including reasons model of accident causation; and management of human error.
Systems Analysis and Design with UML
Alan Dennis, Barbara Haley Wixom and David TegardenYou can’t truly understand Systems Analysis and Design (SAD) by only reading about it; you have to do it. In Systems Analysis and Design, Third Edition, Dennis, Wixom, and Roth offer a hands-on approach to actually doing SAD. Building on their experience as professional systems analysts and award-winning teachers, these three authors capture the experience of actually developing and analyzing systems. They focus on the core set of skills that all analysts must possess––from gathering requirements and modeling business needs, to creating blueprints for how the system should be built.
Operating Systems Design and Implementation (3rd Edition)
Andrew S Tanenbaum and Albert S WoodhullOperating Systems Design and Implementation, 3e, is ideal for introductory courses on computer operating systems. Written by the creator of Minux, professional programmers will now have the most up-to-date tutorial and reference available today.  Revised to address the latest version of MINIX (MINIX 3), this streamlined, simplified new edition remains the only operating systems text to first explain relevant principles, then demonstrate their applications using a Unix-like operating system as a detailed example. It has been especially designed for high reliability, for use in embedded systems, and for ease of teaching.
The Function of Form
Farshid MoussaviThe Function of Form explores the production of singular affects through systems that relate form and content. This is an essential graphic manual on structural systems and their capacity to produce a variety of forms. Extracting their base geometric unit, a wide range of historical projects from the Medieval to the present are used as systems to proliferate different forms. The book distinguishes tessellation from modulation as a type of flexible system for producing complex repetition through diverse parts. The research presented aims to move architectural experiments away from 'mechanistic' notions of systems for re-producing forms, to 'machinic' notions of systems that determine how parts of an architectural problem interrelate and multiply. This open nature of transversal systems leads to new actualized forms and novel affects.
Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems (Oxford Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering)
B. P. Lathi and Zhi DingAn ideal first text on communication systems in electrical engineering, Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems is now in its fourth edition. Retaining the superb pedagogical style of the first three editions, the authors first introduce the fundamentals of signals and systems and core communication topics; they then present the tools essential to the design and analysis of digital communications. Featuring a seamless blend of mathematics and heuristics, carefully crafted examples to clarify mathematical abstractions, and new and updated MATLAB exercises, this text provides a thorough coverage of modern communication system theory and application that is easily accessible to students. Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems is suitable for students with or without prior knowledge of probability theory. Only after laying a solid foundation in how communication systems work do the authors delve into analyses of communication systems that require probability theory and random processes. Revised, expanded, and updated throughout, the fourth edition reflects the many technological advances in the field, such as OFDM and CDMA, pervasive communication applications such as cellular systems, wireless LAN systems, and DSL modem technology services. New to this Edition* New discussion of technological advances and applications* New chapters (12 and 13) on spread spectrum communications and frequency selective channels and OFDM systems* New and updated MATLAB examples* New material on such topics as code division multiple-access (CDMA), orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), equalization, soft decoding, turbo codes, and low-density parity check (LDPC) codesFeatures * Flexible organization (outlined in the preface) that accommodates a variety of course structures, including one-semester, two-semester, one-quarter, and two-quarter* Accessible to students with no background in probability theory* Abundant real-world examples that are applicable to students' everyday lives* Gives intuitive insights--rather than just proofs--wherever possible, as well as heuristic explanations of theoretical results
Fundamentals of Information Systems
Ralph Stair and George ReynoldsNow in its fifth edition, FUNDAMENTALS OF INFORMATION SYSTEMS continues to offer a concise overview of information systems fundamentals in a short, nine-chapter format. Students will be presented with the core IS principles, offered an overview of the IS discipline, and will learn the changing role of the IS professional. By achieving these goals, FUNDAMENTALS OF INFORMATION SYSTEMS will enable students, regardless of their major, to understand and use fundamental IS principles so that they can function more efficiently and effectively as workers, managers, decision makers, and organizational leaders. Each chapter has been completely updated with the latest topics and examples. Chapters have more than 50 new references; contain all new opening vignettes, Information Systems @ Work, and Ethical and Societal Issues special interest boxes; and contain examples of actual individuals and organizations using IS to their benefit.
