THE ACCLAIMED NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER.
Because Internet is for anyone who's ever puzzled over how to punctuate a text message or wondered where memes come from. It's the perfect book for understanding how the internet is changing the English language, why that's a good thing, and what our online interactions reveal about who we are.
Language is humanity's most spectacular open-source project, and the internet is making our language change faster and in more interesting ways than ever befo
We introduce interdisciplinary research and get students and the audience familiarized with the difference equations; solving them explicitly, determining the long-term behavior of solutions (convergence, boundedness and periodicity). We help to develop intuition in analyzing convergence of solutions in terms of subsequences and analyzing patterns of periodic cycles. Our book helps you learn applications in biology, economics and business, computer science and engineering.
Mteto Nyati knew as child in Mthatha, working at his mother’s store, that he wanted to fix and build things. After his studies in Engineering at Natal University, he headed for Johannesburg to work at Afrox. He was the only black engineer and the advice he received was ‘don’t mess up’. He didn’t. Today he is one of South Africa’s top CEOs.
An experienced civil engineer presents the physics and fundamentals underlying the many fields of engineering. Far from a dry, nuts-and-bolts exposition, 101 Things I Learned in Engineering School uses real-world examples to show how the engineer's way of thinking can illuminate questions from the simple to the profound- Why shouldn't soldiers march across a bridge? Why do buildings want to float and cars want to fly? What is the difference between thinking systemically and thinking systematical
Now in its seventh edition, Basic Engineering Mathematics is an established textbook that has helped thousands of students to succeed in their exams.

This is a textbook for undergraduate courses in systems dynamics and controls. It presents a comprehensive treatment of the analysis of lumped parameter physical systems. Beginning with a discussion of mathematical models and ODEs, the book covers input/output and state space models, computer simulation, and modeling methods and techniques in mechanical, electrical, thermal and fluid domains.
Appropriate Paper-based Technology (APT) is a survey of the technologies for making a range of products from chess-men to armchairs, from trays to solar cookers, using paper. It is a revised and updated edition of the Manual of APT published by IRED, Harare, 1989 and 1991.
