Evolutionary Computing in Advanced Manufacturing

FREEDownload : Evolutionary Computing in Advanced Manufacturing

Manoj Tiwari, Jenny A. Harding, "Evolutionary Computing in Advanced Manufacturing"
English | 2011 | ISBN: 0470639245 | 354 pages | EPUB | 8 MB

Evolutionary Computing in Advanced Manufacturing
This cutting-edge book covers emerging, evolutionary and nature inspired optimization techniques in the field of advanced manufacturing. The complexity of real life advanced manufacturing problems often cannot be solved by traditional engineering or computational methods. Hence, in recent years researchers and practitioners have proposed and developed new strands of advanced, intelligent techniques and methodologies. Evolutionary computing approaches are introduced in the context of a wide range of manufacturing activities, and through the examination of practical problems and their solutions, readers will gain confidence to apply these powerful computing solutions. The initial chapters introduce and discuss the well established evolutionary algorithm, to help readers to understand the basic building blocks and steps required to successfully implement their own solutions to real life advanced manufacturing problems. In the later chapters, modified and improved versions of evolutionary algorithms are discussed. The book concludes with appendices which provide general descriptions of several evolutionary algorithms.

Calculus: Single Variable (6th Edition)

FREEDownload : Calculus: Single Variable (6th Edition)

Deborah Hughes-Hallett, William G. McCallum, Andrew M. Gleason, "Calculus: Single Variable (6th Edition)"
English | ISBN: 0470888644, 0470888539 | 2012 | PDF | 768 pages | 23 MB

Calculus: Single Variable (6th Edition)
Calculus teachers recognize Calculus as the leading resource among the "reform" projects that employ the rule of four and streamline the curriculum in order to deepen conceptual understanding. The Sixth Edition uses all strands of the 'Rule of Four' – graphical, numeric, symbolic/algebraic, and verbal/applied presentations – to make concepts easier to understand. The book focuses on exploring fundamental ideas rather than comprehensive coverage of multiple similar cases that are not fundamentally unique.

A History of Modern Africa: 1800 to the Present, 2nd edition

FREEDownload : A History of Modern Africa: 1800 to the Present, 2nd edition

Richard J. Reid, "A History of Modern Africa: 1800 to the Present, 2nd edition"
English | 2012 | ISBN-10: 0470658983 | PDF | 408 pages | 6 MB

A History of Modern Africa: 1800 to the Present, 2nd edition
Updated and revised to reflect recent historic events and scholarly debates, this second edition of A History of Modern Africa recounts the full breadth of Africa's political, economic, and social history over the past two centuries. Author Richard Reid presents a thought-provoking and illuminating journey through the key moments and issues that have shaped Africa's recent past. Arguing that the continent's story cannot be understood without full consideration of its deeper historical experience – both the violent dynamism within Africa, and the external challenges confronting it – Reid focuses on the continuity between the pre-colonial and the postcolonial eras, in addition to highlighting the multifaceted impact of colonial rule.
The new edition places stronger emphasis on the legacies of the 19th century and the colonial period in the context of the twenty-first century. Reid also explores the contemporary tensions facing Africa, including those most apparent in recent developments in Darfur, Sudan, Somalia, Côte d'Ivoire, and Libya. A History of Modern Africa is an essential recounting of the turning points of Africa's past and the rich and diverse strands of African culture that will help shape its future.

Integrated Mathematics: Courses I – III (3 volume set), Second Edition

Integrated Mathematics: Courses I – III (3 volume set), Second Edition
Edward P. Keenan, Ann X. Gantert | 1989-1991 | PDF | ISBN: 0877202664, 0877202729, 0877202788 | 2247 pages | 844 Mb
Integrated Mathematics: Course I-III, Second Edition, is a thorough revision of the textbook that has been a leader in presenting high school mathematics in a contemporary, integrated manner. Over the last decade, this integrated approach has undergone further changes and refinements. Amsco's Second Edition reflects these developments.

Integrated mathematics is the term used in the United States to describe the style of mathematics education which integrates many topics or strands of mathematics throughout each year of secondary school. Each math course in secondary school covers topics in algebra, geometry, trigonometry and analysis. Nearly all countries throughout the world, except the United States, follow this type of curriculum.

In the United States, topics are usually integrated throughout elementary school up to the eighth grade. Beginning with high school level courses, topics are usually separated so that one year a student focuses entirely on algebra, the next year entirely on geometry, and then another year of algebra and later an optional fifth year of analysis (calculus). The one exception in the American high school curriculum would be the fourth year of math, typically referred to as precalculus, which usually integrates algebra, analysis, trigonometry, and geometry topics. Statistics may be integrated into all the courses or presented as a separate course.

New York State has used integrated curricula since the 1970s and this has been formalized in graduation requirements. Some other localities in the United States have also tried such integrated curricula. Georgia recently adopted such a curriculum, modeling their program after the Japanese curriculum. Under the new Common Core Standards set to be adopted by most states in 2012, the only difference between a traditional American sequence and an integrated sequence is the order in which the topics are taught. Supporters of using integrated curricula in the United States believe that students will be able to see the connections between algebra and geometry better in an integrated curriculum, but the Common Core Standards allow either type of curriculum.
