Book Description

The Hindu–Arabic numeral system (1, 2, 3,...) is one of mankind’s greatest achievements and one of its most commonly used inventions. How did it originate? Those who have written about the numeral system have hypothesized that it originated in India; however, there is little evidence to support this claim.

This book provides considerable evidence to show that the Hindu–Arabic numeral system, despite its commonly accepted name, has its origins in the Chinese rod numeral system. This system was widely used in China from antiquity till the 16th century. It was used by officials, astronomers, traders and others to perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and other arithmetic operations, and also used by mathematicians to develop arithmetic and algebra. Based on this system, numerous mathematical treatises were written.

Sun Zi suanjing (The Mathematical Classic of Sun Zi), written around 400 AD, is the earliest existing work to have a description of the rod numerals and their operations. With this treatise as a central reference, the first part of the book discusses the development of arithmetic and the beginnings of algebra in ancient China and, on the basis of this knowledge, advances the thesis that the Hindu–Arabic numeral system has its origins in the rod numeral system.Part Two gives a complete translation of Sun Zi suanjing.

In this revised edition, Lam Lay Yong has included an edited text of her plenary lecture entitled "Ancient Chinese Mathematics and Its Influence on World Mathematics", which was delivered at the International Congress of Mathematicians, Beijing 2002, after she received the prestigious Kenneth O. May Medal conferred by the International Commission on the History of Mathematics. This should serve as a useful and easy-to-comprehend introduction to the book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The sizesaurus is supersaurus
The Siazesaurus is awesome! I am a teacher and it allows me to bring very complex subjects down to my fourth grade students in an amuzing and educational way. The book itself is extremely interesting. Pick up The Sizesaurus you will not be disappointed.

2-0 out of 5 stars Witty, yes. Accurate, no-to-barely.
The essays at the first part of the book are both witty and clever. However, I also purchased the book for (I thought) some factual information as well, and regret to report that the bulk of the book, containing relationships among units, is dreadful. As an example, a "stone" is given as a unit of mass, when its definition (14 pounds) makes it clear that it is a unit of weight. The definition of "barn" refers to a "barn door", but I believe it was originally a reference to "the side of a barn".

Too bad; it could have been an excellent book as well as a fun one. ... Read more

Book Description

The fourth edition continues to offer readers the complete, skill-building information they have come to expect from Doebelin. In this revision, you'll discover an integrated treatment which establishes the study of measurement as an engineering science and technology in its own right. By featuring analytical methods along with the descriptive material, the book develops the coherence of the measurement field. To augment and focus the emphasis on computer technology found in the previous edition, the book includes an entire chapter on computer-aided experimentation, featuring a detailed case study clearly showing how an actual experimental apparatus was computer automated. The importance of sensing devices to the automation of manufacturing processes has been recognized by the addition of topics such as coordinate measuring machines, surface finish measurement, machine vision, and particle measurement in clean-room technology. You can count on Measurement Systems to foster an appreciation of the significance of measurement in all the application areas, from the monitoring of processes and operations, to automatic control and experimental engineering analysis. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Maybe good only for sophmor level.
This book was one of the references in an undergrad measurement system class. I think this is a good introduction to someone who does not know what "sensor" means. But in a graduate level research and then in industry research, this book was not very useful. Entirely this book is oversimplified and omits many of widely used sensors in inductry. It also fails to cover the significant nonlinear effects in some sensors that engineers cannot ignore in implementation. For those who need a guide of how to select and use sensors in research, this is not the one you want to buy. -one star

4-0 out of 5 stars excellent reference
I wouldn't have submitted a review had I not read that written by 'Georgia Tech', whom I can only assume has some hidden agenda. Contrary to his/her suggestion, the physics in this text is sound and the prose is good. Those who recorded having found that review helpful have been misled.
This is well-known respected text which is an excellent book for both students and practioners in the field of instrumentation. It is a well-established reference which has been refined over a number of editions. Scope of the text is wide and the balance between theoretical principles and practical applications is well-judged. If you can only afford one book on instrumentation then this is definitely one to get -it has served me well both at college and in industry. At nearly 1000 pages of good quality content it is worth its hardback price - the paperback version is excellent value if still available.

5-0 out of 5 stars TROLL ALERT
This is not so much a review of Doebelin as it is a review of Mr Georgia Tech who is making unsubstatiated criticisms of perfectly fine technical books without a shred of explanation or peer support of his views . The give away is that all his reviews use the EXACT same language no matter what the subject of the book he is criticising , down to the warning of "disasterous" lab results . He is probably a snotty 13 year old hacker just trying to cause trouble . Even the 20 of 24 people who found his 'review' helpful are probably Mr Snotty himself endorsing his own reviews form various grade school computers . BEWARE .

1-0 out of 5 stars Readers beware.
It is a good try summarizing various types of sensor in a book. Yet, readers must beware that many of the explanations are incorrect. The author tries to explain various sensors only by using his poor physics knowledge. Believing this book will result in a disaster in your scientific/engineering experiments. Sentences poorly written as well. ... Read more

Book Description

This pioneering volume surveys the topic of precedence testing by investigating the problem of testing homogeneity for two or more samples using the order of earlier observations. The authors review the development of research from the foundations laid in the early 1960s up to their own recent contributions. While most examples in the book center around life-time data, theoretical properties are also discussed in the context of precedence testing. Monte Carlo studies are used to illustrate important results. Previous knowledge of nonparametric techniques is assumed.

As a comprehensive, up-to-date survey of four decades of advances in the field the features include:
* Lucidly written, well organized, and easy to follow.
* Broad treatment of the subject matter from the classical to the general censoring scheme.
* Comprehensive coverage, including recent developments and extensions.
* Emphasis on construction principle of precedence testing.
* Plentiful illustrations to capture the procedures.

4-0 out of 5 stars This pook totally helps!
Being a mathophobe, I was terrified when I registered for the class. But since I had to buy this book for my math class, then math all of a sudden was really easy! I actually understood the WORD problems with ease and what not!! The only thing that keeps me from giving it a 5 star rating is that there are many typos in the book, especially in chapter 6.2: there are at least three typos in this specific area if and when you are assigned the odd problems; and what's more, if you want a good laugh, check out pages 455-456. You'll see what I mean!

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this book now!
I am a 34 year old student that has struggled with math my entire life. I have failed many math classes in college because I just did not clearly understand how to do the math problems. I enrolled at Harbor College in Willmington, CA this fall 2003 and purchased this required book. To my amazement, this book is written in a way that a dummie like me can easily learn all the lessons. I now have a class grade of 95 and FINALLY because of this book, I can do algebra word problems, and I understand how to check them. I am even tutoring some of my classmates, WOW! thats not too bad for a dummie! I thank the author for creating the best prealgebra book I have ever seen. It is written STEP-BY-STEP and in the most basic format that can be explained. Please only purchase this book. You will not be dissapointed and you will pass prealgebra. All thanks to K. Elayn Martin-Gay, what a job you did putting the book together!

5-0 out of 5 stars Substantial, and Rich exercises
This workbook is packed with a lot of examples and rich exercises; which are presented in incremental development fashion. My two children, 10 and 11 year old, have high math aptitude; two grades beyond their average level. I bought this workbook to help them in the transition to algebra and trigonometry. They are able to go thru most of these execises in one summer. I must admit the quality of the lessons and exercises have this quite enjoyable and intuitive for my children to absorb.

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR STUDENTS CONSIDERING ALGEBRA
Being that I am 28 years of age and a freshman in college, I was placed in the remedial math class for which this text was required. I was terrified due to the fact I failed math in high school and even the WORD Algebra scared me. This book has great examples and it really helped me understand the concepts of Algebra. I have a 97% average in my class and when I go onto Algebra I next term, I won't be so terrified! :) ... Read more

Book Description

The book deals with lock-in thermography as a new variant of the well known IR thermography for all applications where the heat of the sample can be pulsed. The lock-in mode enables a much improved signal/noise ratio (up to 1000x) and a far better lateral resolution. Thus, it replaces hot spot measurements previously carried out using liquid crystals or Fluorescent Microthermal Imaging. Various experimental approaches to lock-in thermography are reviewed with special emphasis on the lock-in IR thermography realised by the authors themselves. Thus, the book provides a useful introduction to this technique and a helpful guide for scientists and engineers working in this field. A detailed theoretical treatment of the propagation of thermal waves is presented as a basis of various applications to, e.g. integrated devices, MOS structures, solar cells and solar modules, concludes the book. ...

Book Description

A groundbreaking look at the nature of quantum mechanics

With new technologies permitting the observation and manipulation of single quantum systems, the quantum theory of measurement is fast becoming a subject of experimental investigation in laboratories worldwide. This original new work addresses open fundamental questions in quantum mechanics in light of these experimental developments.

Using a novel analytical approach developed by the authors, Quantum Measurement of a Single System provides answers to three long-standing questions that have been debated by such thinkers as Bohr, Einstein, Heisenberg, and Schrodinger. It establishes the quantum theoretical limits to information obtained in the measurement of a single system on the quantum wavefunction of the system, the time evolution of the quantum observables associated with the system, and the classical potentials or forces which shape this time evolution. The technological relevance of the theory is also demonstrated through examples from atomic physics, quantum optics, and mesoscopic physics.

Suitable for professionals, students, or readers with a general interest in quantum mechanics, the book features recent formulations as well as humorous illustrations of the basic concepts of quantum measurement. Researchers in physics and engineering will find Quantum Measurement of a Single System a timely guide to one of the most stimulating fields of science today.
