Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering - Giorgio RizzoniRizzoni provides a solid overview of the electrical engineering discipline that is especially geared toward the many non-electrical engineering students who take this course. The hallmark feature of the text is its liberal use of practical applications to illustrate important principles. The applications come from every field of engineering and feature exciting technologies such as Ohio State's world-record setting electric car. The appeal to non-EE's is further heightened by such special features as the book's Focus on Measurement sections, Focus on Methodology sections, and Make the Connection

Propositional And Predicate Calculus: A Model Of Argument - Derek GoldreiAt the heart of the justification for the reasoning used in modern mathematics lies the completeness theorem for predicate calculus. This unique textbook covers two entirely different ways of looking at such reasoning. Topics include: the representation of mathematical statements by formulas in a formal language; the interpretation of formulas as true or false in a mathematical structure; logical consequence of one formula from others; formal proof; the soundness and completeness theorems connecting logical consequence and formal proof; the axiomatization of some mathematical theories using a

The God Equation - Mike HockneyEuler's Formula (aka Euler's Identity) is traditionally regarded as the most beautiful equation in all of mathematics. Yet it's so much more than that. It's the equation that governs the whole universe and even defines the human soul! Euler's Formula is e^(ix) = cos x + i sin x. In the specific case where x = π, e^(iπ) + 1 = 0. Euler's Formula is the centrepiece of the hyperrational mathematical religion of the Pythagorean Illuminati, the most ancient secret society in the world. Euler's Formula is the perfect complement for Leibniz's Monadology. Together, they form the most powerful
