*new*ITALIAN CULTURE A VIEW FROM AMERICA
By Peter Dorato and Sylvia Dorato

 *Special Feature From TSI Press!*

New Edition - Hardcover, 3rd Printing, full color jacket!

List price: $29

 

 

 

ABOUT THIS BOOK
This book is a view of Italian Culture as seen by two, second- and third-generation Italian-Americans. Their Italian Family was from the Piedmont region of Italy, and the view does have a Piedmontese focus, but all of Italy and Italian culture is explored. Topics include, elements of the Italian language (including the dialects of Piedmont and Naples), popular music, history, food and wine, and growing up Italian in the USA. Both authors are engineers, so a special chapter is included on left-brained Italians (mathematicians, scientists, and engineers), a subject not commonly included in books on Italian culture. The material in the book has been used by the first author in a course on Italian Culture taught in the Division of Continuing Education at the University of New Mexico since 1993. 




 

cover MY LIFE AND TRAVELS WITH THE FATHER OF FUZZY LOGIC
 

By Fay Zadeh

*Special Feature From TSI Press!*

 

List price: $35


ABOUT THIS BOOK

You are invited to come fly with the Zadehs on their magic carpet as they visit exotic places around the globe. Learn about distant lands and peoples through the experiences of two world travelers who have shared an extraordinary lifetime together. Accompany them on their trek from the old world to the new, and their many trips back to the old. Learn about the fascinating man who has been dubbed, "The Father of Fuzzy Logic." Mrs. Zadeh wanted to publish this book because there has been nothing personal written about her husband other than his scientific and technical achievements. "Since as a person he has an unusual character, besides his many hobbies, varied interests, and even hidden passions, I thought his background and life in general would make him more interesting and accessible," she says. "We have traveled so much together, with some unusual adventures... I wanted to share our experiences with others... to know him as someone who has his feet on the ground, even though he remains a kind of "Flying Dutchman" and continues to spread his thoughts around the world." In this charming, descriptive narrative, Mrs. Zadeh shares many personal impressions of people and places. Starting from an early age, Mrs. Zadeh has collected many interesting stories about "The Father of Fuzzy Logic". The reader will find these supplemented by anecdotes of colleagues, relatives, and friends in a separate appendix at the back of the book along with recipes of Lotfi's favorite foods. Climb aboard the Zadehs’ magic carpet of memories and find out more about the "The Father of Fuzzy Logic."

Volume 1

Editors: M. Jamshidi, C.C. Nguyen, R. Lumia and J. Yuh 

List price: $120


ABOUT THIS BOOK

Economics, automation, and manufacturing are among areas which have replaced the global hostilities and confrontations of the past political scene. Recently, environmental issues have also been raised in many international forums, such as the Montreal Protocol, which would make the role of highly interdisciplinary fields such as manufacturing, automation, and intelligent systems even more important. One of the most critical factors in manufacturing is intelligent industrial automation. The role of Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing (Fuzzy Logic, Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithms, and Probabilistic Reasoning) in producing user-friendly "smart products is now a reality in the global market place. MIQ (Machine Intelligence Quotient) is fast becoming an attribute for many household products. The First World Automation Congress -- WAC '94 -- was a common forum for international scientists, engineers, and technologists to come together and discuss these issues. The objective of this first volume of TSI Press' Series on Intelligent Automation and Soft Computing is to report on the technical presentations of the WAC '94.

cover UNDERWATER ROBOTIC VEHICLES Design and Control

Editor: J. Yuh

List price: $90



ABOUT THIS BOOK

Most of the chapters in Underwater Robotic Vehicles: Design and Control were prepared as papers for a workshop entitled "Future Research Directions in Underwater Robotics," held August, 1994. This workshop invited researchers, manufacturers, and users of Underwater Robotic Vehicles (URVs), and its goals were to discuss the state-of-the-art, explore current and future applications, and investigate effective collaboration mechanisms among researchers and manufacturers. The authors who contributed to this volume, like many of those attending the workshop, are recognized leaders in the field of URVs.


The objectives of this three-part book, which contains 14 chapters by 27 authors, are to guide the design of advanced URV systems by providing information on recent developments in vehicle technologies and to reveal potential application areas.

A Tribute to Professor Fazlollah Reza

Editors: Mo Jamshidi, Majid Ahmadi and Mahmood Nahvi

List price: $40



ABOUT THIS BOOK

In today's complex technological world very few individuals can be found who have achieved world-class stature in both science and literature. This is in contrast with the distant past, when the scholarly tradition was directed towards a fundamental and broad view of knowledge. One rare exception is Professor Fazlollah Reza, electrical engineer, mathematician, and one of the leading authorities on Persian literature, especially on the works of Abolghassem Ferdowsi the great Persian Poet of the eleventh century. This book is a tribute to Professor Reza, and it constitutes only a partial record of a Symposium held in his honor of UCLA in Los Angeles, California, USA. 




 

cover DISCONTINUOUS DEFORMATION ANALYSIS (DDA) AND SIMULATIONS OF DISCONTINUOUS MEDIA
 

Editors: M. Reza Salami, Don Banks

List price: $90 
 

ABOUT THIS BOOK
Geologic materials, rocks and soils, are by their vary nature heterogeneous and discontinuous. On the grain scale, soils and granular rocks are composed of randomly arranged particles, either loosely packed or cemented together. On a larger scale, rocks masses are typically made up of fractured or jointed blocks of rock, which may have widely varying properties. On an ever larger scale, crustal faults and tectonic plate boundaries are physical discontinuities in rocks and soils which, due to relative motion between crustal blocks or plates, are the cause of many destructive and deadly earthquakes around the world. Such discontinuities, pervasive on all scales, makes it difficult if not impossible, to model problems of realistic size or significance using standard methods of continuum mechanics. Thus, the Discontinuous Deformation Analysis (DDA) method wad developed. this computational method permits analysis of multi-body contact and interaction problems, with specific application to complex problems in geomechanics. The objective of this Forum is to bring together experts from around the world to discuss foundations of the method, to motivate future advancements of the method, and to share their experiences in applying DDA to solve practical engineering problems. 
 

The volume of the proceedings constitutes an invaluable resource tool for those interested in the latest developments in the field of Discontinuous Deformation Analysis (DDA) and Simulations of Discontinuous Media.
