Time-Frequency Signal Analysis and Processing (TFSAP) is a collection of theory and algorithms used for the analysis and processing of non-stationary signals, as found in a wide range of applications including telecommunications, radar, and biomedical engineering. This book gives the university researcher and R&D engineer insight into how to use TFSAP methods to develop the engineering application systems they are looking to implement.
"Now, in a single convenient volume, you can have all the information you need on real-world applications of electromagnetic theory, including the prediction, analysis, and measurement of electromagnetic fields and their effects. RADIO FREQUENCY PRINCIPLES and APPLICATIONS will guide you from the basics of electromagnetic theory to the full range of new and vital applications.<br> <br> Author Albert A. Smith, Jr. provides a wealth of practical information in an accessible style, without using obtuse theory or requiring complex mathematical derivations.<br> <br> This exceptionally ""readable"" text ties together the various related topics in a logical development, and the material flows from the fundamentals of electromagnetic fields to areas of practical application. The numerous figures provide helpful illustrations, and the appendicies offer additional mathematical details.<br> <br> This book will be of particular use to engineers working in the many diverse fields relating to the application of electromagnetic concepts, including engineers involved in RF technology, EMC, radio wave propagation, antennas, radio frequency environments, wireless communications, microwaves, and space systems.<br> <br> Professors: To request an examination copy simply e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org."<br> <br> Sponsored by:<br> IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society, IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society.
The origins and evolution of the major insititutions in the United States for noncommercial radio and television are explored in this unique volume.<P></P><P>Ralph Engelman examines the politics behind the development of National Public Radio, Radio Pacifica and the Public Broadcasting Service. He traces the changing social forces that converged to launch and shape these institutions from the Second World War to the present day. The book challenges several commonly held beliefs - including that the mass media is simply a manipulative tool - and concludes that public broadcasting has an enormous potential as an emancipatory vehicle.</P>
Floods constitute a persistent and serious problem throughout the United States and many other parts of the world. They are respon- sible for losses amounting to billions of dollars and scores of deaths annually. Virtually all parts of the nation--coastal, mountainous and rural--are affected by them. Two aspects of the problem of flooding that have long been topics of scientific inquiry are flood frequency and risk analyses. Many new, even improved, techniques have recently been developed for performing these analyses. Nevertheless, actual experience points out that the frequency of say a 100-year flood, in lieu of being encountered on the average once in one hundred years, may be as little as once in 25 years. It is therefore appropriate to pause and ask where we are, where we are going and where we ought to be going with regard to the technology of flood frequency and risk analyses. One way to address these questions is to provide a forum where people from all quarters of the world can assemble, discuss and share their experience and expertise pertaining to flood frequency and risk analyses. This is what constituted the motivation for organizing the International Symposium on Flood Frequency and Risk Analyses held May 14-17, 1986, at Louisiana State University, Bat-on Rouge, Louisiana.
