Impedance
Spectroscopy : Emphasizing Solid Materials and Systems
by J. Ross MacDonald, Ross J. MacDonald

John Wiley & Sons
Hardcover - 368 pages
(June 1987)

The publisher, John Wiley & Sons
This is the first book-length, integrated treatment of impedance spectroscopy
with an emphasis on solid state electrochemical systems. Impedance spectroscopy
is a method for characterizing the electrical behavior of systems in which
the overall system behavior is determined by a number of coupled processes,
each proceeding at a different rate. The scope of this volume is comprehensive:
provides coverage of fundamental theory, illustrates applications of the
technique, and discusses practical considerations in regard to data acquisition
and analysis. Those with little prior experience in impedance measurements
will find this an excellent introduction. Senior investigators will find
that the book provides a useful summary of fundamentals as well as a survey
of recent developments in the field.

Mastering
Mechanical Desktop : Native Solids ACAD Theory
by Ron K. C. Cheng
Usually ships in 24 hours
Autodesk Press
Paperback - 256 pages
(November 1997)

Book Description
Building on the foundation of Autocad skills provided in Cheng's Mastering
AutoCad R13 book, this brief companion book teaches students and
professional users of Mechanical Desktop how to create three-dimensional
solid objects (called "native solids" in Autodesk literature). The book
begins with an overview of solid objects and how they are built using a
computer; users then move to creating complex solids using Boolean Union
and Subtract operations, extruding and resolving 2-dimensional regions
and polylines to become solids, and using another Boolean operation, Intersection,
to create models. The author explains how to output 3D solid models to
paper, generating orthographic and 3D- views in a paper document. Finally,
users learn how to produce a 3D structural framework and use constructive
solid geometry techniques in building an architectural project. The
book ends with a summary of all solid modeling commands used in the text.

Hardcover
2nd edition (June 1997)

Book Description
In this new edition of their classic work on Cellular Solids, the authors
have brought the book completely up to date, including new work on
processing of metallic and ceramic foams and on the mechanical, electrical
and acoustic properties of cellular solids. Data for commercially available
foams are presented on material property charts. By unifying the modeling
of many different types of cellular solid (for instance, engineering honeycombs,
polymer, metallic and ceramic foams, wood, cancellous bone, cork), similarities
in the behavior in these diverse materials are explained. The text
summarizes current understanding of the structure and mechanical behavior
of cellular materials, and the ways in which they can be exploited
in engineering design.

Optical Waves in Layered Media (Wiley Series in Pure and
Applied Optics)
by Pochi Yeh
Usually ships in 24 hours
John Wiley & Sons
Paperback - 406 pages
(September 1988)

The publisher, John Wiley & Sons
Presents a clear picture of the propagation of optical waves in layered
media and teaches the reader how to design and analyze optical devices
using such media. Starting from the simplest case of plane wave propagation
in homogeneous media, the author introduces a new matrix method for
studying the optical properties of multilayer structures which consist
of isotropic materials. He then describes propagation in anisotropic
layered media and in inhomogeneous layers, guided waves, the coupling of
modes, and the optical properties of superlattices and quantum wells. Materials
covered include dielectrics, crystals, and absorbing media such as metals
and semiconductors. Many applications are described, including spectral
filters, Bragg relectors, Fabry-Perot etalons, antireflection coatings,
ellipsometry, gradient index imaging rods, birefringent filters,
waveguide couplers, and x-ray mirrors and oscillators.

The publisher, John Wiley & Sons The first text that focuses on the research
aspect of the magnetism of matter and magnetic resonance. Explores the
properties of magnetic materials and their applications to our world
today from magnetic media and recording to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
