Radio Frequency and Microwave Power Amplifiers. Volume 1: Principles, Device Modeling and Matching Networks

Radio Frequency and Microwave Power Amplifiers are finding an increasingly broad range of applications, particularly in communications and broadcasting, but also in the industrial, medical, automotive, aviation, military, and sensing fields. Each application has its own design specifications, for example, high linearity in modern communication systems or high efficiency in broadcasting, and, depending on process technology, capabilit...

Synthesis And Properties of Low- And High-Molecular Compounds: Quantitative Level

The main goal of this book is to describe the synthesis and properties of low and high-molecular compounds on the quantitative level. Special attention was given to composition materials based on polymers and dispersed wood, the mechanism of HCL elimination reactions via a four-centre transition state during PVC thermal destruction, swelling of the filled polymer compositions, structure and properties of combined systems based on but...

Generative Deep Learning: Teaching Machines to Paint, Write, Compose, and Play

These generative models are both simple and hard. It is a simple idea with a lot of potential and possibility. But it is very hard to make it work. The book is well written and explain the basic idea of generative framework very well. I have learned these models previously from other sources. This book offers a great survey to the field and a way for me to refresh my memory. Only thing I wish there is more details in the difficulty o...

Fault Diagnosis for Robust Inverter Power Drives

Power drives are used for induction motor control, uninterruptible power supplies, and in electrical vehicles. The increasing penetration of power drives makes their reliability, robustness, and early diagnosis a central point of attention especially in planning, designing, and financing. This book explores fault diagnosis of inverter drives to enable early diagnosis and robust design for efficient long life operation. Fault Diagnosi...

Advanced welding processes

Advanced welding processes provides an excellent introductory review of the range of welding technologies available to the structural and mechanical engineer. The book begins by discussing general topics such power sources, filler materials and gases used in advanced welding. A central group of chapters then assesses the main welding techniques: gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), high energy density proces...

Strengthening Deep Neural Networks: Making AI Less Susceptible to Adversarial Trickery
PDF
Strengthening Deep Neural Networks

Hugely readable book, explaining deep learning, the threats and approaches to minimize them. Essential reading for software professionals in an industry that is rapidly applying deep learning applications to real-world scenarios. Enough math and code examples to go deep, but lots of examples and clear explanations to get a quick understanding. We expect AI systems to be better than people (faster, more reliable) and this book explain...

Food Fray: Inside the Controversy over Genetically Modified Food

Eighty percent or more of all corn, cotton and soybeans grown in the United States consists of genetically modified (GM) varieties, according to Weasel. But she only gives these statistics at the end of her account of the battle over GM organisms, leaving readers till then with the impression that an equal tug-of-war is in progress. The author, a biologist at Portland State University in Oregon, also skimps on the science in the batt...
