Mathematics Ones and Zeros Understanding Boolean Algebra, Digital Circuits, and the Logic of Sets Ones and Zeros explains, in lay terms, Boolean algebra, the suprisingly simple system of mathematical logic used in digital computer circuitry. Anecdotal in style and often funny, Ones and Zeros follows the development of this logic system from its origins in Victorian England to its rediscovery in this century as the foundation of all modern computing machinery. Readers will learn about the interesting history of the development of symbolic logic in particular, and the often misunderstood process of mathematical invention and scientific discovery, in general. Ones and Zeros also features practical exercises with answers, real-world examples of digital circuit design, and a reading list. This fascinating look at the crucial technology of the twentieth century will be enjoyed by anyone who has a general interest in science, technology, and mathematics. Ones and Zeros will be of particular interest to software engineers who want to gain a comprehensive understanding of computer hardware. Outstanding features include: A history of mathematical logic An explanation of the logic of digital circuits Hands-on exercises and examples About the IEEE Press Understanding Science & Technology Series The IEEE Press Understanding Science & Technology Series treats important topics in science and technology in a simple and easy to understand manner. Designed expressly for the nonspecialist engineer, scientist, or technician, as well as the technologically curious, each volume stresses practical information over mathematical theorems and complicated derivations.

Building on solid state device and electromagnetic contributions to the series, this text book introduces modern power electronics, that is the application of semiconductor devices to the control and conversion of electrical power. The increased availability of solid state power switches has created a very rapid expansion in applications, from the relatively low power control of domestic equipment, to high power control of industrial processes and very high power control along transmission lines. This text provides a comprehensive introduction to the entire range of devices and examines their applications, assuming only the minimum mathematical and electronic background. It covers a full year's course in power electronics. Numerous exercises, worked examples and self assessments are included to facilitate self study and distance learning.
