Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub

**Mathematics for Electrical Engineering and Computing** embraces many applications of modern mathematics, such as Boolean Algebra and Sets and Functions, and also teaches both discrete and continuous systems - particularly vital for Digital Signal Processing (DSP). In addition, as most modern engineers are required to study software, material suitable for Software Engineering - set theory, predicate and prepositional calculus, language and graph theory - is fully integrated into the book.

Excessive technical detail and language are avoided, recognising that the real requirement for practising engineers is the need to understand the *applications* of mathematics in everyday engineering contexts. Emphasis is given to an appreciation of the fundamental concepts behind the mathematics, for problem solving and undertaking critical analysis of results, whether using a calculator or a computer.

The text is backed up by numerous exercises and worked examples throughout, firmly rooted in engineering practice, ensuring that all mathematical theory introduced is directly relevant to real-world engineering. The book includes introductions to advanced topics such as Fourier analysis, vector calculus and random processes, also making this a suitable introductory text for second year undergraduates of electrical, electronic and computer engineering, undertaking engineering mathematics courses.

The book is supported with a number of **free online resources**. On the companion website readers will find:

* over 60 pages of "Background Mathematics" reinforcing introductory material for revision purposes in advance of your first year course

* plotXpose software (for equation solving, and drawing graphs of simple functions, their derivatives, integrals and Fourier transforms)

* problems and projects (linking directly to the software)

In addition, for lecturers only, http://textbooks.elsevier.com features a complete worked **solutions manual** for the exercises in the book.

**Dr Attenborough** is a former Senior Lecturer in the School of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering at South Bank University. She is currently Technical Director of The Webbery - Internet development company, Co. Donegal, Ireland.

* Fundamental principles of mathematics introduced and applied in engineering practice, reinforced through over 300 examples directly relevant to real-world engineering

* Over 60 pages of basic revision material available to download in advance of embarking on a first year course

* Free website support, featuring complete solutions manual, background mathematics, plotXpose software, and further problems and projects enabling students to build on the concepts introduced, and put the theory into practice
