In the latest years, the use of computational techniques for solving different problems is rising. In this context, engineers are faced with the difficult choice of selecting and applying the best methods suited for modelling and optimization purposes. On the other hand, there are cases when the conventional approaches are not feasible and alternative methods must be developed. This book is aimed to help engineers in the application and implementation of neural networks and bio-inspired algorithms for solving day-to-day engineering problems and specific process optimization. New techniques based on artificial neural networks, differential evolution algorithm, and artificial immune systems are presented. They have proven to be flexible and efficient, having as main advantages the generalization capability and the opportunity of providing useful information for experimental practice.
This thoroughly revised textbook provides the fundamentals of spread-spectrum systems with a continued emphasis on theoretical principles. The revision includes new sections and appendices on characteristic functions and LaPlace transforms, orthonormal expansions of functions, the SNR wall in detection, multiple-input multiple-output systems, multicode and multirate systems, interference cancelers, complementary codes, chaos and ultrawideband systems, and the normalized LMS algorithm. As with previous editions, the author presents topics in a practical way that is of interest to both researchers and system designers. He includes updated problems at the end of each chapter, which are intended to assist readers in consolidating their knowledge and to provide practice in analytical techniques. In addition to the new and revised material, the author adds 50 new pages to make the book more accessible to graduate students in electrical engineering.
Read hilarious stories with serious lessons that Michael Lopp extracts from his varied and sometimes bizarre experiences as a manager at Apple, Pinterest, Palantir, Netscape, Symantec, Slack, and Borland. Many of the stories first appeared in primitive form in Lopp´s perennially popular blog, Rands in Repose. The Third Edition of Managing Humans contains a whole new season of episodes from the ongoing saga of Lopp´s adventures in Silicon Valley, together with classic episodes remastered for high fidelity and freshness. Whether you´re an aspiring manager, a current manager, or just wondering what the heck a manager does all day, there is a story in this book that will speak to you-and help you survive and prosper amid the general craziness of dysfunctional bright people caught up in the chase of riches and power. Scattered in repose among these manic misfits are managers, an even stranger breed of people who, through a mystical organizational ritual, have been given power over the futures and the bank accounts of many others. Lopp´s straight-from-the-hip style is unlike that of any other writer on management and leadership. He pulls no punches and tells stories he probably shouldn´t. But they are magically instructive and yield Lopp´s trenchant insights on leadership that cut to the heart of the matter-whether it´s dealing with your boss, handling a slacker, hiring top guns, or seeing a knotty project through to completion. Writing code is easy. Managing humans is not. You need a book to help you do it, and this is it. What You´ll Learn Lead engineers Handle conflict Hire well Motivate employees Manage your boss Discover how to say no Understand different engineering personalities Build effective teams Run a meeting well Scale teams Who This Book Is For Managers and would-be managers staring at the role of a manager wondering why they would ever leave the safe world of bits and bytes for the messy world of managing humans. The book covers handling conflict, managing wildly differing personality types, infusing innovation into insane product schedules, and figuring out how to build a lasting and useful engineering culture.
