1 Allouche, Jean-Paul; Shallit, Jeffrey Automatic Sequences Theory, Applications, Generalizations
Uniting dozens of disparate results from different fields, this book combines concepts from mathematics and computer science to present the first integrated treatment of sequences generated by the simple model of computation called the finite automaton. The authors develop the theory of automatic sequences and their generalizations, such as Sturmian words and k-regular sequences. Further, they discuss applications to number theory (particularly formal power series and transcendence in finite characteristic) , physics, computer graphics, and music. Results are presented from the first principles wherever feasible, and the book is supplemented by a collection of 460 exercises, 85 open problems, and more than 1, 600 citations to the literature. Thus, this book is suitable for graduate students or advanced undergraduates, as well as for mature researchers wishing to know more about this fascinating subject. Has index, bibliography, and hints, references, and solutions for select exercises. Laminated cover, remainder mark on the bottom. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall

2 Casselman, Bill Mathematical Illustrations a Manual of Geometry and Postscript
This practical introduction to the techniques needed to produce high-quality mathematical illustrations is suitable for anyone having modest acquaintance with coordinate geometry. The author combines a completely self-contained, step-by-step introduction to the graphics programming language PostScript with advice on what goes into good mathematical illustrations, chapters showing how good graphics can be used to explain mathematics, and a treatment of all the mathematics needed to make such illustrations. The many small, simple graphics projects can also be used in courses in geometry, graphics, or general mathematics. Code for many of the illustrations is included, and can be downloaded from the book's Web site. Includes index. Remainder mark on top. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

3 Crocker, Malcolm J; Marghitu Dan B Analytical Elements of Mechanisms
Mechanisms are fundamental components of machines. They are used to transmit forces and momentum and to manipulate objects in industrial machinery, robots, automobiles, aircraft, mechatronics devices and biomechanical systems. A knowledge of the kinematic and dynamic properties of mechanisms is essential for their design and control. This book describes methods and algorithms for the analysis of kinematic systems. Beginning with basic concepts, the book then discusses a variety of problem solving approaches and computational techniques. Its distinctive feature is its focus on the contour equation as a powerful computationally effective tool that will help the reader to design complex spatial mechanisms. This handy text will be useful for senior or graduate students, researchers, and practicing engineers working in robotics, vehicle dynamics, mechatronics, and machine design. Includes index and mathematica code. Remainder mark on the bottom. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
