  • Waterfowl populations in the Upper Chesapeake region / Robert E. Stewart
    QL 683 C48 S84 1962

  • An architectural approach to level design / Christopher W. Totten ; George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia
    QA 76.76 C672 T679 2014

    Explore Level Design through the Lens of Architectural and Spatial Experience Theory

    Written by a game developer and professor trained in architecture, An Architectural Approach to Level Designis one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. It explores the principles of level design through the context and history of architecture, providing information useful to both academics and game development professionals.

    Understand Spatial Design Principles for Game Levels in 2D, 3D, and Multiplayer Applications

    The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. The author connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory.

    Create Meaningful User Experiences in Your Games

    Bringing together topics in game design and architecture, this book helps designers create better spaces for their games. Software independent, the book discusses tools and techniques that designers can use in crafting their interactive worlds.


  • Simulation / Sheldon M. Ross, Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, University of Southern California
    QA 273 R82 2013

    The 5th edition of Ross's Simulation continues to introduce aspiring and practicing actuaries, engineers, computer scientists and others to the practical aspects of constructing computerized simulation studies to analyze and interpret real phenomena. Readers learn to apply results of these analyses to problems in a wide variety of fields to obtain effective, accurate solutions and make predictions about future outcomes.

    This latest edition features all-new material on variance reduction, including control variables and their use in estimating the expected return at blackjack and their relation to regression analysis. Additionally, the 5th edition expands on Markov chain monte carlo methods, and offers unique information on the alias method for generating discrete random variables.

    By explaining how a computer can be used to generate random numbers and how to use these random numbers to generate the behavior of a stochastic model over time, Ross's Simulation, 5th edition presents the statistics needed to analyze simulated data as well as that needed for validating the simulation model.

    Chemometrics: Data Driven Extraction for Science, Second Edition is recommended for post-graduate students of chemometrics as well as applied scientists (e.g. chemists, biochemists, engineers, statisticians) working in all areas of data analysis.


  • Statistical mechanics for chemistry and materials science / Biman Bagchi
    QC 174.8 B33 2018eb

    This book covers the broad subject of equilibrium statistical mechanics along with many advanced and modern topics such as nucleation, spinodal decomposition, inherent structures of liquids and liquid crystals. Unlike other books on the market, this comprehensive text not only deals with the primary fundamental ideas of statistical mechanics but also covers contemporary topics in this broad and rapidly developing area of chemistry and materials science.


  • Fractional quantum mechanics / Nick Laskin
    QC 174.17 M35L37 2018eb

  • Characterization of wide bandgap power semiconductor devices / Fei (Fred) Wang, Zheyu Zhang, and Edward A. Jones
    QC 611.8 W53 W36 2018eb

    At the heart of modern power electronics converters are power semiconductor switching devices. The emergence of wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductor devices, including silicon carbide and gallium nitride, promises power electronics converters with higher efficiency, smaller size, lighter weight, and lower cost than converters using the established silicon-based devices. However, WBG devices pose new challenges for converter design and require more careful characterization, in particular due to their fast switching speed and more stringent need for protection.

    Characterization of Wide Bandgap Power Semiconductor Devices presents comprehensive methods with examples for the characterization of this important class of power devices. After an introduction, the book covers pulsed static characterization; junction capacitance characterization; fundamentals of dynamic characterization; gate drive for dynamic characterization; layout design and parasitic management; protection design for double pulse test; measurement and data processing for dynamic characterization; cross-talk consideration; impact of three-phase system; and topology considerations.


  • Integrated fault diagnosis and control design of linear complex systems / Mohammadreza Davoodi, Nader Meskin and Khashayar Khorasani
    QA 402.3 D38 2018eb

    As control systems become more complex and are expected to perform tasks in unknown and extreme environments, they may be subject to various types of faults in their sensors, actuators or other components. It is crucial to be able to diagnose the occurrence of faults and to repair them in order to maintain, guarantee, and improve the overall safety, reliability, and performance of the systems. This book addresses the design challenges of developing and implementing novel integrated fault diagnosis and control technologies for complex linear systems.

    Integrated Fault Diagnosis and Control Design of Linear Complex Systems considers linear time-invariant (LTI) systems under both time- and event-triggered frameworks. The book initially develops novel methodologies for the problem of integrated fault diagnosis and control of LTI systems to address current design challenges. The results obtained are then extended to a number of complex linear systems, specifically to Markovian jump systems as well as to cooperative multi-agent systems.


  • Cognitive neuroscience / Marie T. Banich, University of Colorado Boulder, Rebecca J. Compton, Haverford College, Pennsylvania
    QP 360.5 B359 2018
    Updated fully, this accessible and comprehensive text highlights the most important theoretical, conceptual and methodological issues in cognitive neuroscience. Written by two experienced teachers, the consistent narrative ensures that students link concepts across chapters, and the careful selection of topics enables them to grasp the big picture without getting distracted by details. Clinical applications such as developmental disorders, brain injuries and dementias are highlighted. In addition, analogies and examples within the text, opening case studies, and 'In Focus' boxes engage students and demonstrate the relevance of the material to real-world concerns. Students are encouraged to develop the critical thinking skills that will enable them to evaluate future developments in this fast-moving field. A new chapter on Neuroscience and Society considers how cognitive neuroscience issues relate to the law, education, and ethics, highlighting the clinical and real-world relevance. An expanded online package includes a test bank.
