Now in its fifth edition, Mathematics Applied to Electronics relates selected mathematical topics to the fields of electronics, electromechanics, automation, and computer technology. The text is intended for those who want a book in which each section of theoretical chapters is followed immediately by one or more applications chapters. Harter and Beitzel continue their tradition of excellence with this state-of-the-art text, designed to fully integrate the use of both the programmable and conventional scientific calculators. Written for students of technology, this straightforward book guides the reader through a gradated treatment of topics in pre-algebra, number notation and operation, quantities and units of measurement, algebra, analytical geometry, trigonometry, logarithms, exponential equations, phasor algebra, math analysis, computer number systems, and the mathematics of computer logic. The text requires knowledge of only mathematics fundamentals. It introduces new mathematical concepts in a direct manner reinforced by hundreds of examples, scores of realistic pictorials and figures, dozens of calculator drills and review summaries, and problem sets. In all, this fifth edition provides more than 4,600 exercises and more than 600 examples. New to the Fifth Edition: Chapter 2, "Number Notation and Operation," is rewritten with an emphasis on precision rounding and number notation. Chapter 3, "Quantities and Units of Measurement," is updated to IEEE/ASTM SI 10-1997 standards to provide readers with the most current standards for applying the SI system to electronics. Expanded coverage of metrology concepts in Chapter 12, "Applying Mathematics to Electrical Concepts." New Chapter 32, "Mathematics of Computer Logic," offers readers a comprehensive introduction to digital logic. New Glossary provides readers with a single place to locate all key terms in the text. Other features: Consisent reading level throughout. Integrated use of the scientific calculator. Authoritative use of SI units and conventional metric practices with electronics. In-depth treatment of graphing functions, empirical data, and the interpretation of graphs. Comprehensive coverage of computer number systems and computer logic commonly associated with automation controls and digital equipment. End-of-chapter definitions of key terms. Answers to all odd-numbered problems, including many detailed graphical solutions, and answers to all calculator drills.Harter, James H. is the author of 'Mathematics Applied to Electronics' with ISBN 9780130171849 and ISBN 0130171840.
