Newnes Mathematics Pocket Book for Engineers focuses on the principles, operations, and methodologies involved in mathematics. The book first offers information on arithmetic operations, numbering systems, and algebra. Discussions focus on exponential functions, partial fractions, Newton's method, direct and inverse proportionality, laws of indices, multiplication and division of binary numbers, reciprocals, square roots, laws of indices, logarithms, and continued fractions. The publication then takes a look at series, matrices and determinants, and complex numbers. Concerns include application of complex numbers, complex equations, addition and subtraction of complex numbers, multiplication of matrices, arithmetical and geometric progressions, Fourier sine and cosine series, and even and odd functions. The text covers Laplace transforms, statistics, and Boolean algebra and logic circuits. Discussions focus on logic circuits, combinatorial logic networks, measures of central tendency and dispersion, linear regression and correlation, Poisson distribution, common notations used for the Laplace transform, and linearity of the Laplace transform. The manuscript is a vital source of data for students, technicians, engineers, and scientists interested in mathematics.
The Newnes Mechanical Engineer’s Pocket Book is a comprehensive collection of data for mechanical engineers and students of mechanical engineering. Bringing together the data and information that is required to-hand when designing, making or repairing mechanical devices and systems, it has been revised to keep pace with changes in technology and standards. The Pocket Book emphasises current engineering practice and is supported by clear accounts of the fundamental principles of mechanical engineering. Key features include the latest BSI engineering data; focus on engineering design issues; enhanced coverage of roller chain drives, pneumatic and hydraulic systems; and expanded and more accessible detail on statics, dynamics and mathematics. * Over 300 pages of new material, including the latest standards information from BSI * Exhaustive collection of data for mechanical engineers and students of mechanical engineering * Unique emphasis on engineering design, theory, materials and properties
Despite the complexity of the subject, this wealth of information is presented succinctly and in such a way, using tables, diagrams and brief explanatory text, as to allow the user to locate information quickly and easily. Thus the book should be invaluable to those involved with the installation, commissioning and maintenance of data communications equipment, as well as the end user. *A practical engineer's reference that puts the key information at your fingertips *Covers essential data, techniques and working practice *This update covers the latest international regulations

Passive components and discrete devices form the bedrocks on which all modern electronic circuits are built. This Pocket Book is a single volume applications guide to the most popular and useful of these devices, containing 670 diagrams, tables and carefully selected practical circuits. Throughout the Pocket Book great emphasis is placed on practical user information and circuitry. All of the active devices used are modestly priced and readily available. The book is split into twenty chapters. The first three explain important practical features of the ranges of modern passive electrical components, including relays, meters, motors, sensors and transducers. Chapters 4 to 6 deal with the design of practical attenuators, filters, and 'bridge' circuits. The remaining fourteen chapters deal with specific types of discrete semiconductor device, including various types of diode, transistors, JFETs, MOSFETs, VMOS devices, UJTs, SCRs, TRIACs, and various optoelectronic devices. This easy-to-read, concise, highly practical and largely non-mathematical volume is aimed directly at engineers, technicians, students and competent experimenters who can build a design directly from a circuit diagram, and if necessary modify it to suit individual needs. Ray Marston is the author of the multi-volume series of Newnes Circuits Manuals. His magazine articles on circuit design appear regularly in a wide range of publications worldwide.
