Ο θαυμαστός κόσμος των Fractal: Μια περιήγηση στη νέα επιστήμη του χάους και της πολυπλοκότητας - Τάσος ΜπούντηςΠιστεύετε ότι η τάξη κυβερνά τον κόσμο μας; Τι ρόλο παίζει η τύχη στη ζωή μας; Αν πράγματι γνωρίζουμε τους νόμους που διέπουν όλα τα φυσικά φαινόμενα, γιατί δεν μπορούμε να προβλέψουμε με ακρίβεια το μέλλον; Με τη ραγδαία πρόοδο των επιστημών και της τεχνολογίας, ο άνθρωπος κυριάρχησε σε στεριές και θάλασσες, κατάκτησε τους αιθέρες και εξερεύνησε το διάστημα. Ήταν φυσικό λοιπόν να πιστέψει ότι έχει τον πλήρη έλεγχο της εξέλιξής του στον κόσμο!

Digital Design - Frank VahidWhile most popular digital design books present a perspective rooted in the 1970s and 1980s, Digital System Design takes the subject into the 21st century. It quickly moves through the low-levels of design, making a clear distinction between design and gate-level minimization. The book also emphasizes how one of the key uses of digital design today is to build high-performance alternatives to software in addition to glue logic. And it swiftly progresses to register-transfer-level (RTL) design since that is the level at which most digital design in practice today is performed.
