A Computer-Aided Design and Synthesis Environment for Analog Integrated Circuits by Geert Van der Plas, Georges Gielen, Willy M.C. Sansen
Publisher: Springer | English | 2002 | ISBN: 0792376978 | 236 pages | PDF | 11.9 MB

A Computer-Aided Design and Synthesis Environment for Analog Integrated Circuits addresses the design methodologies and CAD tools that are available for the systematic design and design automation of analog integrated circuits. Two complementary approaches are discussed. In the first part the AMGIE analog synthesis system is described. AMGIE is the first analog synthesis system that automates the full design process from specifications down to verified layout.

A Compositional Approach to Performance Modelling by Jane Hillston
170 pages | Cambridge University Press (August 28, 1996) | 0521571898 | DJVU | 7 Mb

This book presents a stochastic extension of process algebra called PEPA that is suitable for specifying a Markov process, which can then be applied to performance modeling. This method, which the author illustrates with case studies taken from the area of communication systems, can readily be used to construct a variety of models that can be analyzed using standard numerical techniques. One of the major advantages of PEPA over the standard methods for specifying stochastic performance models is the inherent apparatus for reasoning about the structure and behavior of models. In the later chapters this apparatus is exploited to define four equivalence relations over PEPA components. Each of these notions of equivalence has intrinsic interest from a process algebra perspective. However, the author also demonstrates them to be useful in a performance modeling context. To conclude the book, the author surveys recent results in the area and discusses open questions. This book will appeal to researchers in computer science and electrical engineering.

6th Conference on Automated Deduction (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) by D. W. Loveland
Language: English | Publisher: Springer | ISBN: 3540115587 | 1982 | PDF | 389 pages | 15,3 mb

The SIXTH CONFERENCE ON AUTOMATED DEDUCTION, held on June 7-9, 1982, at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University, included the resentation of 23 papers selected by the program committee, a keynote address by Lawrence Wos, and an invited talk by John McCarthy (the latter not included in this volume). The conference is the primary international forum for reporting research in all aspects of automated deduction. As such the conference addresses such issues as the design and implementation of (semi) automated theorem proving systems, experimentation with theorem provers, the capability and efficiency of various representations and control structures for automated deduction, and domains of application for automated deduction. Authors presenting papers at this conference come from Canada, France, Israel, Poland, the United Kingdom, the United States and West Germany…

10th International Conference on Automated Deduction by Mark E. Stickel
Springer | English | 1990-08-10 | ISBN: 3540528857 | 704 pages | PDF | 44.8 mb

This volume contains the papers presented at the 10th International Conference on Automated Deduction (CADE-10). CADE is the major forum at which research on all aspects of automated deduction is presented. Although automated deduction research is also presented at more general artificial intelligence conferences, the CADE conferences have no peer in the concentration and quality of their contributions to this topic. The papers included range from theory to implementation and experimentation, from propositional to higher-order calculi and nonclassical logics; they refine and use a wealth of methods including resolution, paramodulation, rewriting, completion, unification and induction; and they work with a variety of applications including program verification, logic programming, deductive databases, and theorem proving in many domains. The volume also contains abstracts of 20 implementations of automated deduction systems. The authors of about half the papers are from the United States, many are from Western Europe, and many too are from the rest of the world. The proceedings of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th CADE conferences are published as Volumes 87, 138, 170, 230, 310 in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

A Cold War In The Soviet Bloc: Polish-east German Relations, 1945-1962

A Cold War In The Soviet Bloc: Polish-east German Relations, 1945-1962 by Sheldon Anderson
Publisher: Westview Press | December 1, 2000 | ISBN: 0813337836 | Pages: 336 | PDF | 32,3 MB

In A Cold War in the Soviet Bloc, Sheldon Anderson uses recently declassified documents from Polish and East German communist party and foreign ministry archives to examine the interplay of national interests with the exigencies of communist party relations within the Soviet bloc during the Cold War. Anderson explores how Polish-East German relations were strained over the permanence of the Oder-Neisse border, the correct road to socialism, German repatriation from Poland, and trade policy; he provides an inside account of the heated debates that seriously divided the Polish and East German communists.Anderson delves into how and why the rift culminated in the return of the anti-Stalinist Wladyslaw Gomulka in October 1956, and he delineates how the Polish-East German conflict undermined the unity of the Soviet bloc on its most strategic flank. In doing so, he reveals the persistence of nationalism and ethnic prejudice in the former communist countries. In this timely text, Anderson pinpoints how nationalism has reemerged as a powerful political force following the end of the Cold War. With A Cold War in the Soviet Bloc, Anderson markedly fills the gap in the existing scholarship on postwar relations between the countries of East Europe.

A Coherent Splendor: The American Poetic Renaissance, 1910-1950

A Coherent Splendor: The American Poetic Renaissance, 1910-1950 by Albert Gelpi
Publisher: Cambridge University Press | January 29, 1988 | ISBN: 0521345332 | Pages: 496 | PDF | 14,2 MB

In this book Professor Gelpi traces the emergence of American Modernist poetry as a reaction to, and outgrowth of, the Romantic ideology of the nineteenth century. He focuses on the remarkable generation of poets who came to maturity in the years of the First World War and whose works constitute the principal body of poetic Modernism in English. This large historical argument is developed through monographic chapters on the poets which include close readings of their major poems. Comprehensive in scope and subtle in its analysis, Gelpi's book promises to be one of the major studies of American poetry for years to come.

A Chinese Bestiary : Strange Creatures from the Guideways Through Mountains and Seas by Richard E. Strassberg by Richard E. Strassberg
Publisher: University of California Press; 1 edition (June 17, 2002) | ISBN: 0520218442 | Pages: 360 | PDF | 59,7 MB

A Chinese Bestiary presents a fascinating pageant of mythical creatures from a unique and enduring cosmography written in ancient China. The Guideways through Mountains and Seas, compiled between the fourth and first centuries b.c.e., contains descriptions of hundreds of fantastic denizens of mountains, rivers, islands, and seas, along with minerals, flora, and medicine. The text also represents a wide range of beliefs held by the ancient Chinese. Richard Strassberg brings the Guideways to life for modern readers by weaving together translations from the work itself with information from other texts and recent archaeological finds to create a lavishly illustrated guide to the imaginative world of early China. Unlike the bestiaries of the late medieval period in Europe, the Guideways was not interpreted allegorically; the strange creatures described in it were regarded as actual entities found throughout the landscape. The work was originally used as a sacred geography, as a guidebook for travelers, and as a book of omens.
