Space Adjacency Analysis By Edward T. White
Paperback: $24.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
One of our major responsibilities as architects is to design buildings that support the activities of the users of the facilities. Our building designs should positively reinforce and facilitate the... More > performance of the operations that they house. A facility should go beyond simply containing activities and should actually contribute to the productivity of our client's organization. This book describes the process and techniques of visualizing program information for architectural design in the dual sense of converting the information into graphic images and seeing or understanding the information better. The central thesis is that our ability to draw needs, requirements, and early design concepts is just as important as our ability to draw final building design solutions and that, in fact, our diagramming skills profoundly influence the quality of our building designs.< Less

Convex Optimization Euclidean Distance Geometry 2e By Dattorro
Paperback: $43.29

Convex Analysis is an emerging calculus of inequalities while Convex Optimization is its application. Analysis is the domain of a mathematician while Optimization belongs to the engineer. In... More > layman’s terms, the mathematical science of Optimization is the study of how to make a good choice when faced with conflicting requirements. The qualifier Convex means: when an optimal solution is found, then it is guaranteed to be a best solution; there is no better choice. As any convex optimization problem has geometric interpretation, this book is about convex geometry (with particular attention to distance geometry) and nonconvex, combinatorial, and geometrical problems that can be relaxed or transformed into convex problems. A virtual flood of new applications follows by epiphany that many problems, presumed nonconvex, can be so transformed. This is a BLACK & WHITE paperback.

3-7 Watt audio amplifier (TDA 1519 A or 2N3055 transistors) with tone control By Ko Tilman
eBook (PDF): $1.31

This document (20 pages, PDF file) describes a stereo amplifier, made with the TDA 1519 A Chip or with 2N3055 transistors (conventional amplifier with an output capacitor). Also the schematics from... More > two tone control units (a presence/loudness filter and a parallel T filter) are published. With these filters you can create the type of sound that you like in your audio system. The document refers to a series of video's on my Youtube channel (called: "developing a 6 (4) Watt stereo amplifier"), the circuit in this video is published here. The tone control/parallel T filter only works with 1 switch, so there is no separate control potentiometer for "low" and "high" frequencies. The amplifiers need a good quality loudspeaker box (with some bass boost) to show their good properties. The document does not supply a schematic for a power supply with which the amplifier can be connected to the grid (110-230 V - 50/60 Hz).< Less
