Mathematics is a language with a unique vocabulary, written with a dizzying array of often incomprehensible symbols. If we are unsure of the meaning or usage of a mathematical word, a quick internet search is invaluable. But what are we to do when confronted with some strange mathematical hieroglyph? What does one type into the search bar? This book is the answer! Our goal is to cover mathematical notation commonly used by engineers and scientists---notation a university student is likely to encounter. We make no attempt to teach the mathematics behind these symbols. Rather, our goal is to give reminders of what these symbols mean; from there, we can consult textbooks or resources on the web. The book is organized by mathematical topic, but multiple indices steer the reader to each symbol's explanation. We also show how to produce the symbols in LaTeX and give guidance on their mathematical usage.

Digital Signal Processing A Practical Guide for Engineers and Scientists

The mathematical notation for separating a complex number into its real and imaginary parts uses the operators: Re( ) and Im( ). For example, using the above complex numbers: ReA=2 ImA=6 ReB =-4 ImB=-l.5 ReC=3 ImC=-7 EQUATION 30-1 ...

An exact answer to a mathematical problem is usually the best answer but sometimes an exact answer is either unobtainable or unhelpful (or both). In that case, an approximation is the likely best choice. This book shows how to create and work with rigorous approximations using the notation and logic of asymptotics. Asymptotic approximations are important throughout mathematics and computer science. This book can be used as a supplementary text for a college course or for individual self-study.In addition to a solid introduction to asymptotic notation, methods, and formulas, we provide an extensive suite of exercises (with complete solutions) to ensure mastery.

A Friendly Guide to Wavelets

Most scientists, engineers, and applied researchers are unfamiliar with modern mathematical notation and concepts. Thus, a casual reference to “measurable functions” or “L”(R)” can be enough to make an aspiring pilgrim weary.

This volume is designed as a textbook for an introductory course on wavelet analysis and time-frequency analysis aimed at graduate students or advanced undergraduates in science and engineering. It can also be used as a self-study or reference book by practicing researchers in signal analysis and related areas. Since the expected audience is not presumed to have a high level of mathematical background, much of the needed analytical machinery is developed from the beginning. The only prerequisites for the first eight chapters are matrix theory, Fourier series, and Fourier integral transforms. Each of these chapters ends with a set of straightforward exercises designed to drive home the concepts just covered, and the many graphics should further facilitate absorption.

More than ever, mission-critical and business-critical applications depend on object-oriented (OO) software. Testing techniques tailored to the unique challenges of OO technology are necessary to achieve high reliability and quality. "Testing Object-Oriented Systems: Models, Patterns, and Tools" is an authoritative guide to designing and automating test suites for OO applications. This comprehensive book explains why testing must be model-based and provides in-depth coverage of techniques to develop testable models from state machines, combinational logic, and the Unified Modeling Language (UML). It introduces the test design pattern and presents 37 patterns that explain how to design responsibility-based test suites, how to tailor integration and regression testing for OO code, how to test reusable components and frameworks, and how to develop highly effective test suites from use cases. Effective testing must be automated and must leverage object technology. The author describes how to design and code specification-based assertions to offset testability losses due to inheritance and polymorphism. Fifteen micro-patterns present oracle strategies--practical solutions for one of the hardest problems in test design. Seventeen design patterns explain how to automate your test suites with a coherent OO test harness framework. The author provides thorough coverage of testing issues such as: The bug hazards of OO programming and differences from testing procedural code How to design responsibility-based tests for classes, clusters, and subsystems using class invariants, interface data flow models, hierarchic state machines, class associations, and scenario analysis How to support reuse by effective testing of abstract classes, generic classes, components, and frameworks How to choose an integration strategy that supports iterative and incremental development How to achieve comprehensive system testing with testable use cases How to choose a regression test approach How to develop expected test results and evaluate the post-test state of an object How to automate testing with assertions, OO test drivers, stubs, and test frameworks Real-world experience, world-class best practices, and the latest research in object-oriented testing are included. Practical examples illustrate test design and test automation for Ada 95, C++, Eiffel, Java, Objective-C, and Smalltalk. The UML is used throughout, but the test design patterns apply to systems developed with any OO language or methodology. 0201809389B04062001
