With a focus on developing computational algorithms for examining waveform design in diverse active sensing applications, this guide is ideal for researchers and practitioners in the field. The three parts conveniently correspond to the three categories of desirable waveform properties: good aperiodic correlations, good periodic correlations and beampattern matching. The book features various application examples of using the newly designed waveforms, including radar imaging, channel estimation for communications, an ultrasound system for breast cancer treatment and covert underwater communications. In addition to numerical results, the authors present theoretical analyses describing lower bounds or limitations of performance. Focusing on formulating practical problems mathematically and solving the mathematical problems using efficient and effective optimization techniques, the text pays particular attention to developing easy-to-use computational approaches. Most algorithms are accompanied by a table clearly detailing iteration steps and corresponding MATLAB codes are available on the companion website.
This practical guide explains the use of randomization tests and provides example designs and macros for implementation in IBM SPSS and Excel. It reviews the theory and practice of single-case and small-n designs so readers can draw valid causal inferences from small-scale clinical studies. The macros and example data are provided on the book's website so that users can run analyses of the text data as well as data from their own studies.
The new edition features:
The book opens with an overview of single case and small n designs -- why they are needed and how they differ from descriptive case studies. Chapter 2 focuses on the basic concepts of randoization tests. Next how to choose and implement a randomization design is reviewed including material on how to perform the randomizations, how to select the number of observations, and how to record the data. Chapter 5 focuses on how to analyze the data including how to use the macros and understand the results. Chapter 6 shows how randomization tests fit into the body of statistical inference. Chapter 7 discusses size and power. The book concludes with a demonstration of how to edit or modify the macros or use parts of them to write your own.
Ideal as a text for courses on single-case, small n design, and/or randomization tests taught at the graduate level in psychology (especially clinical, counseling, educational, and school), education, human development, nursing, and other social and health sciences, this inexpensive book also serves as a supplement in statistics or research methods courses. Practitioners and researchers with an applied clinical focus also appreciate this book's accessible approach. An introduction to basic statistics, SPSS, and Excel is assumed.

Your church website could be better. Even if you paid a lot of money a few years ago, it's not exactly what you want. Maybe it doesn't exist at all, or maybe the volunteer who built it left for another church. While the reasons for not having a good church website are infinite, the way to create a better church website has just gotten a bit simpler with this guide designed to help anyone interested in attempting to implement a new website for a church. This is a book each minister, congregational president, and church library needs. The book starts with an argument for having a better website. If you've had trouble convincing your board or members of the need, you'll find some resources that might help. The guide then presents some suggestions about the kind of framework to use in building your new or updated site. The next part of the book takes a look at a website from top to bottom, going over most of what you'll need to create an effective design. Ratings are given for relative importance and difficulty of web page elements. The book then discusses pages of a typical church website, making some suggestions as to how to lay the pages out. You will also learn about several of the most popular and useful add-ons available for church websites. The entire book is written with budget in mind, since the author designs websites for local churches at a fraction of the cost of many custom web design businesses. The book is a pragmatic guide that covers most of what you'll need without trying to give step-by-step details, especially since it's meant to be applicable to many available systems. While the book can function as a basic guide to building your own sites, it's as much a list of suggestions that can help you navigate what you already have and what you will be shopping for when you get a website. It will help you understand what your web developer will be doing for you, whether it's someone you hire or a volunteer. Think of it this way: would you buy a car without doing a little research on the kind of car you need and the available options? A good website costs as much as a car, yet many churches get taken by slick sales pitches. This book will help you to at least understand what those salesmen are trying to offer. The book does not take a stance on the best way for your church to build a website. Rather, it offers options, suggestions, and a quick education on what could be useful in your decision-making and implementation of a new church website. Some of the ideas could save your church thousands of dollars, while others might allow you to see why spending the money is worth it. A few tricks might even save you something more valuable than money: time, especially if you're trying to build your own church website. The web designer who wrote this book routinely builds sites in three days or less, and you'll see screenshots of the results. While the goal may not be for you to speed-build your new church site, it's certainly tempting to find out how someone learned to build websites in three days while the local custom website building boutique will ask for six months to a year. If you want to look at some of the results before you purchase the book, please check out luthernet.org to see several examples of three-day website upgrades. Passiveninja.com also has a portfolio section showing more of the same: modern, mobile-friendly websites built in a few days using the tools and techniques in this book. Bonus articles discussing web design and church ministry efforts are included, as well as an annotated ministry resources list compiled by Lisa Jaeger. If you are looking for a DIY guide to building your own non-church website, this book will also help you. While it's geared towards churches, most of the ideas can be used with small business websites, education websites, family blogs, and many others, since the designer has built all kinds of sites over the years using mostly Joomla and Google Sites.
Developments in power electronics and digital control have made the rugged, low-cost, high-performance induction machine the popular choice of electric generator/motor in many industries. As the induction machine proves to be an efficient power solution for the flexible, distributed systems of the near future, the dynamic worldwide market continues to grow. It is imperative that engineers have a solid grasp of the complex issues of analysis and design associated with these devices.
The Induction Machines Design Handbook, Second Edition satisfies this need, providing a comprehensive, self-contained, and up-to-date reference on single- and three-phase induction machines in constant and variable speed applications. Picking up where the first edition left off, this book taps into the authors' considerable field experience to fortify and summarize the rich existing literature on the subject. Without drastically changing the effective logical structure and content of the original text, this second edition acknowledges notable theoretical and practical developments in the field that have occurred during the eight years since the first publication. It makes corrections and/or improvements to text, formulae, and figures.
New material includes:
Broad coverage of induction machines includes applications, principles and topologies, and materials, with numerical examples, analysis of transient behavior waveforms and digital simulations, and design sample cases. The authors address both standard and new subjects of induction machines in a way that will be both practically useful and inspirational for the future endeavors of professionals and students alike.
