The Logic Manual is the ideal introduction to logic for beginning philosophy students. It offers a concise but complete introductory course, giving a firm grounding in the logic that is needed to study contemporary philosophy. Exercises, examples, and sample examination papers are provided on an accompanying website.
Have you ever attempted to assemble a child?s swing set? This mission seems to grow more challenging once you have all the pieces separated, but what if the manufacturer forgot to include an instruction manual? This is a perfect analogy of a man trying to understand what a woman wants. Nobody ever gave him a manual or a playbook! Logic & Lunacy is a humorous study that breaks down the actions and expectations of a woman into five distinctive personalities, then compares the personalities to a vehicle part or function to provide men with a logical playbook to help decipher what a woman wants and expects from him.This Playbook also teaches men simple practical methods of application in a relationship,by comparing female needs to the necessary mechanical maintenance on a vehicle. There is a section under each personality for the ladies too, so a couple can learn to fight together instead of each other, to find their own method through the marital madness.
Laser tracking system (LTS) is one of the most powerful measurement and tracking instruments, and it has been widely used in accurate target tracking and measurement process in commercial or military applications in recent years. However traditionally, most approaches on the LTS provided very little detailed and complete information on building, developing, testing and troubleshooting processes for the LTS. To fill this gap, this book provides very detailed descriptions and analyses, both theoretically and practically, on optical, echanical, electronic and computer control programs in how to build and implement a real LTS with a complete set of documents. Some novel approaches, such as self-calibration of tracking gimbals and fuzzy logic control, are also covered in the book. A technical manual that provides detailed practical designs and considerations is also included. With the help of this book, a college student, researcher and engineer can build a real LTS more easily and conveniently.
This is an ideal textbook for one-semester introductory graduate or senior undergraduate courses in adaptive and self-learning systems for signal processing. The material progresses from a short introduction to adaptive systems through modelling, classical filters and spectral analysis to adaptive control theory, nonclassical adaptive systems and applications. Features: - Comprehensive review of linear and stochastic theory. - Design guide for practical application of the least squares estimation method and Kalman filters. - Study of classical adaptive systems together with neural networks, genetic algorithms and fuzzy logic systems and their combination deals with complex problems like underwater acoustic signal processing. - Tutorial problems and exercises which identify significant points and demonstrate the practical relevance of the theory. - PDF Solutions Manual available to tutors containing answers to the tutorial problems, course outlines, sample examination material and project assignments.
