The Code Check series provides answers to all types of building code questions. The books are filled with essential information, yet are handy enough to take to the job site. Provides information on the requirements for heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. It is cross-referenced to both the Uniform Mechanical Code and the International Residential Code.

A lost cipher. A race against time to decode it. Marine archaeologists Kate Wetherall and Lou Bates are diving off Howland Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, when a torpedo-shaped object hurtles through the water towards them; the fuselage of Amelia Earhart's lost plane. In the cockpit, they find a corroded metal cylinder the size of a baton. Landing back on US soil, Kate and Lou are arrested and interrogated by special forces, and the cylinder confiscated. Behind the arrests is Glena Buckingham, CEO of the powerful energy conglomerate Eurenergy, as she too has discovered that the wrecked plane may have held precious secret cargo. Meanwhile, an extraordinary piece of footage has come to light - of Einstein talking about a radical new defence technology he had been working on. Whoever can decrypt the lost cipher, which holds the key to Einstein's secret defence technology, could hold the key to global power.

So you can make sure every detail is right the first time - to save time and money on every job. With durable spiral binding and laminated pages, this user-friendly flip chart is up to the rigorous demands of any work site - and all kinds of weather.
What is SPIN? SPIN is a general tool for the specification and formal verification of software for distributed systems. It has been used to detect design errors in a wide range of applications, such as abstract distributed algorithms, data communications protocols, operating systems code, and telephone switching code. The verifier can check for basic correctness properties, such as absence of deadlock and race conditions, logical completeness, or unwarranted assumptions about the relative speeds of processes. It can also check for more subtle, system dependent correctness properties expressed inthe syntax of Linear-time Temporal Logic (LTL). The tool translates LTL formulae automatically into automata representations, which can be used in an efficient on-th-fly verifications procedure. This DIMACS volume presents the papers contributed to the second international workshop that was held on the SPIN verification system at Rutgers University in August 1996. The work covers theoretical and foundational studies of formal verifications, empirical studies of the effectiveness of different types of algorithms, significant practical applications of the SPIN verifier, and discussions of extensions and revisions of the basic code. This text will be of interest to those working in applications.

Ex-Navy Seal Ted Strickland is Chief Biomedical Engineer in a Florida hospital chain. Deadly things, started happening. Patient records altered, bogus Medicare claims filed, and equipment sabotaged. The healthcare infrastructure was about to implode. Ted enlisted his buddy Jake Tapper, and they pulled hard on the string that lead them back to where they both hoped they'd never have to go again.
