This best-selling and classic book teaches you the key principles of computer networks with examples drawn from the real world of network and protocol design. Using the Internet as the primary example, the authors explain various protocols and networking technologies. Their systems-oriented approach encourages you to think about how individual network components fit into a larger, complex system of interactions. Whatever your perspective, whether it be that of an application developer, network administrator, or a designer of network equipment or protocols, you will come away with a “big picture” understanding of how modern networks and their applications are built.

*Completely updated content with expanded coverage of the topics of utmost importance to networking professionals and students, including P2P, wireless, security, and applications.

MATLAB programming with applications for engineers
Recommending faculty: Prof. Romarie U. Lorenzo

Authors Stephen J. Chapman
Place of Publication Australia
Date of Publication 2013
Publisher Cengage Learning

MATLAB PROGRAMMING WITH APPLICATIONS FOR ENGINEERS seeks to simultaneously teach MATLAB as a technical programming language while introducing the student to many of the practical functions that make solving problems in MATLAB so much easier than in other languages. The book provides a complete introduction to the fundamentals of good procedural programming. It aids students in developing good design habits that will serve them well in any other language that he or she may pick up later. Programming topics and examples are used as a jumping off point for exploring the rich set of highly optimized application functions that are built directly into MATLAB.
