Reviews

...a surprisingly broad range of electrical topics of great concern to almost all modern engineers. The authors have assembled an authoritative and comprehensive reference tool specifically targeting practicing engineers. And, the volume has the potential to become a classic modern electrical engineering handbook. While it encompases many traditional subjects, it also addresses many areas of current research activity and international interest. Kenneth L. Corum Sun Microsystems
