Programming Language Pragmatics 4th Edition

Programming Language Pragmatics 4th Edition

A course in computer programming provides the typical student’s first exposure to the field of computer science. Most students in such a course will have used computers all their lives, for social networking, email, games, web browsing, word processing, and a host of other tasks, but it is not until they write their first programs […]

Theory of Machines and Mechanisms 5th Edition

Theory of Machines and Mechanisms 5th Edition

The tremendous growth of scientific knowledge over the past 50 years has resulted in an intense pressure on the engineering curricula of many universities to substitute “modern” subjects in place of subjects perceived as weaker or outdated. The result is that, for some, the kinematics and dynamics of machines has remained a critical component of […]

Neuroscience and Psychology of Meditation in Everyday Life: Searching for the Essence of Mind

Neuroscience and Psychology of Meditation in Everyday Life Searching for the Essence of Mind

This book resulted from my exploration of long-term meditation practice both as a meditator and as a scientist. In over 16 years of my meditation practice I have experienced first-hand, and also witnessed in others’ meditation progression, many of the common challenges practitioners encounter in the process of developing long-term meditation practice. These seem to […]

Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society

Blueprint The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society

When I was a boy spending the summer in Greece in July of 1974, the military dictators unexpectedly fell from power. A former prime minister, Konstantinos Karamanlis, returned from exile to Syntagma (Constitution) Square in central Athens. Enormous crowds gathered in all the avenues approaching the square, and my mother, Eleni, took me and my […]

Dynamics of Structures (4th Edition)

Dynamics of Structures (4th Edition)

In this opening chapter, the structural dynamics problem is formulated for simple structures that can be idealized as a system with a lumped mass and a massless supporting structure. Linearly elastic structures as well as inelastic structures subjected to applied dynamic force or earthquake-induced ground motion are considered. Then four methods for solving the differential […]
