Filling the gap between basic undergraduate courses and advanced graduate courses, this text explains how to analyze and solve conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer problems analytically. It describes many well-known analytical methods and their solutions, such as Bessel functions, separation of variables, similarity method, integral method, and matrix inversion method. Developed from the author's 30 years of teaching, the text also presents step-by-step mathematical formula derivations, analytical solution procedures, and numerous demonstration examples of heat transfer applications.
Global energy network is an important platform to guarantee effective exploitation of global clean energy and ensure reliable energy supply for everybody. Global Energy Interconnection analyzes the current situation and challenges of global energy development, provides the strategic thinking, overall objective, basic pattern, construction method and development mode for the development of global energy network. Based on the prediction of global energy and electricity supply and demand in the future, with the development of UHV AC/DC and smart grid technologies, this book offers new solutions to drive the safe, clean, highly efficient and sustainable development of global energy.

Why are some countries rich and others poor? David N. Weil, one of the top researchers in economic growth, introduces students to the latest theoretical tools, data, and insights underlying this pivotal question. By showing how empirical data relate to new and old theoretical ideas, Economic Growth provides students with a complete introduction to the discipline and the latest research. With its comprehensive and flexible organization, Economic Growth is ideal for a wide array of courses, including undergraduate and graduate courses in economic growth, economic development, macro theory, applied econometrics, and development studies.
Videographers can harness the potential that WM9 offers to deliver high-quality video and multimedia via DVD and over the Internet. Illustrated examples and tutorials demonstrate the basic functionality of WM9 as well as the options available to advanced users who wish to design new applications with the software development kit. Professional videographers will find this book to be a practical way to learn how to set up players, encoders, and servers and how to capture and compress video so they can use WM9 with the applications they use every day, including Powerpoint, Premiere, After Effects, and Avid.
An account of the shooting death of a L.A. cop describes how two men--a drifter and a model student at New Mexico Institute of Technology--neither of whom knew the other, confessed to the crime. Original.
