ctEmergent Information Technologies and Enabling Policies for Counter-Terrorism
Edited by Robert L. Popp and John Yen (2006)

Applying advanced information technologies is key to protecting a country from terrorism. This book covers counterterrorism modeling, quantitative and computational social science, signal processing and information management techniques, semantic Web and knowledge management technologies, and information- and intelligence-sharing technologies. Also discussed are legal standards for data mining and technical system design.

dtDigital Transmission Engineering, 2nd Ed.
By John B. Anderson (2005)

Features enhanced explanations of digital transmission as well as expanded coverage of wireless communications, including coverage of modulation, error-correction coding, synchronization, and radio channels.

dmData Mining: Concepts, Models, Methods, and Algorithms
By Mehmed Kantardzic (2003)

An introduction to the field, this book covers how and when to use software tools for data mining. It also describes data-analysis software and parameter tuning.

bmBio-Medical Telemetry: Sensing and Transmitting Biological Information From Animals and Man, 2nd Ed.
By R.S. MacKay (1998)

This text teaches biomedical engineers, medical practitioners, and biologists how to study humans and other animals without interfering with their normal behavior. It covers the benefits and limitations of telemetering methods, with a focus on transducers and physiological measurements. The book includes an explanation of the human nervous system from an engineer’s point of view. Ultrasonic radio methods for telemetering, satellite tracking, and underwater tracking methods are also discussed, and the book describes the development and application of the first swallowable radio transmitter that transmits data as it travels through the gastrointestinal tract.

nagleHandbook for Preparing Engineering Documents: From Concept to Completion

shaClaude Elwood Shannon: Collected Papers
Edited by N.J.A. Sloane and Aaron D. Wyner (1993)

This was the first published collection of papers by Shannon, known as the father of information theory. His pioneering work on computer chess and on magnetic “mice” that learn the path through a maze are among the earliest contributions to the field of artificial intelligence. The collection includes all of Shannon’s published articles, including his seminal “The Mathematical Theory of Communication.”
