Social Sciences, Sociology & Anthropology (300-399)
  1. Feminist theory : the intellectual traditions
  2. by Donovan, Josephine | 305.4201 DON | 031252
    This first major study of feminist theory, revised and updated here in its fourth edition, now takes the reader into the twenty-first century.

  1. Waste
  2. by Thill, Brian | 363.7 THI | 031344
    Though we try to imagine otherwise, waste is every object, plus time. Whatever else an object is, it's also waste-or was, or will be. All that is needed is time or a change of sentiment or circumstance. Waste is not merely the field of discarded objects, but the name we give to our troubled relationship with the decaying world outside ourselves. Waste focuses on those waste objects that most fundamentally shape our lives Read more...

Natural Sciences & Mathematics (500-599)
  1. Dingo ate my math book : mathematics from down under
  2. by Polster, Burkard | 510 POL | 031412
    Accordingly, the book is a collection of 64 chapters on everything under the hot Australian mathematical sun, arranged into 13 equivalence classes. The latter sport such titles as “A day in Australia,” “Aussie heroes,” “Melbourne, City of Mathematics,” and “The Australian math wars.” But there’s also, what is certainly my favorite, namely: “Keeping the bastards honest,” and even something called “TV snacks.” Read more...

  1. Differential equations : theory, technique and practice
  2. by Krantz, Steven G. | 515.35 KRA | 031087
    "Krantz is a very prolific writer. He … creates excellent examples and problem sets."—Albert Boggess, Professor and Director of the School of Mathematics and Statistical Sciences, Arizona State University, Tempe, USA Designed for a one- or two-semester undergraduate course, Differential Equations: Theory, Technique and Practice, Second Edition educates a new generation of mathematical scientists and engineers on differential equations Read more...

  1. Riemannian submersions, riemannian maps in hermitian geometry, and their applications
  2. by Sahin, Bayram | 516.373 SAH | 031310
    Riemannian Submersions, Riemannian Maps in Hermitian Geometry, and their Applications is a rich and self-contained exposition of recent developments in Riemannian submersions and maps relevant to complex geometry, focusing particularly on novel submersions, Hermitian manifolds, and K{a}hlerian manifolds Read more...

  1. Quantum mechanics : for electrical engineers
  2. by Mayergoyz, Isaak | 530.12 MAY | 031311
    The book is designed for a one-semester graduate course in quantum mechanics for electrical engineers. It can also be used for teaching quantum mechanics to graduate students in materials science and engineering departments as well as to applied physicists. The selection of topics in the book is based on their relevance to engineering applications. The book provides the theoretical foundation for graduate courses in quantum optics and lasers, semiconductor electronics, applied superconductivity Read more...

  1. Limits of resolution
  2. by De Villiers, Geoffrey | 535 DE | 031158
    "This is a unique text - a labor of love pulling together for the first time the remarkably large array of mathematical and statistical techniques used for analysis of resolution in many systems of importance today – optical, acoustical, radar, etc…. I believe it will find widespread use and value." --Dr. Robert G.W. Brown, Chief Executive Officer, American Institute of Physics Read more...

Technology (Applied Sciences) (600-699)
  1. Fundamentals of motor control
  2. by Latash, Mark L. | 612.74 LAT | 031097
    Motor control is a relatively young field of research exploring how the nervous system produces purposeful, coordinated movements in its interaction with the body and the environment through conscious and unsconscious thought. Many books purporting to cover motor control have veered off course to examine biomechanics and physiology rather than actual control, leaving a gap in the literature Read more...

  1. Introduction to radio engineering
  2. by Blaunstein, Nathan | 621.384 BLA | 031277
    The book introduces the basic foundations of high mathematics and vector algebra. Then, it explains the basic aspects of classical electrodynamics and electromagnetism. Based on such knowledge readers investigate various radio propagation problems related to guiding structures connecting electronic devices with antenna terminals placed at the different radar systems. It explains the role of antennas in process of transmission of radio signals between the terminals Read more...

  1. How to be a bawse
  2. by Singh, Lilly | 650.13 SIN | 031449
    From actress, comedian and YouTube sensation Lilly Singh (aka Superwoman) comes the definitive guide to being a BAWSE - a person who exudes confidence, reaches goals, gets hurt efficiently, and smiles genuinely because they've fought through it all and made it out the other side. Told in her hilarious, bold voice that's inspired over 9 million fans, and using stories from her own life to illustrate her message, Lilly proves that there are no shortcuts to success .Read more...

  1. Slab serif : a century of bold letterforms
  2. by Heller, Steven | 686.224 HEL | 031315
    The slab serif typeface—in their classic form, wood types made for large-scale posters, ads, and newspapers—may not be as all-purpose as the gothic or sans serif, but it is equal, if not more powerful, in graphic appeal. Since being introduced in the nineteenth century, slabs have become ubiquitous and are today as popular as ever Read more...

Arts & recreation (700-799)
  1. Simplicity : a matter of design
  2. by Mollerup, Per | 745.20904 MOL | 031314
    Simplification is an ideal we think we aspire to, whether we are talking about the simple life, a clean uncluttered aesthetic, truth to materials, or just efficiency and economy. Per Mollerup uses these different motives – functionality, aesthetics and ethics – as an organising principle for the book, and introduces a wide range of sources and examples Read more...

  1. First exposures : writings from the beginning of photography
  2. by Siegel, Steffen | 770.9034 SIE | 031254
    An exact date for the invention of photography is evasive. Scientists and amateurs alike were working on a variety of photographic processes for much of the early nineteenth century. Thus most historians refer to the year 1839 as the “first” year of photography, not because the sensational new medium was invented then, but because that is the year it was introduced to the world. After more than 175 years, and for the first time in English, Read more...

  1. Raising the curtain : recasting women performers in india
  2. by Singh, Lata | 792.028082 SIN | 031395
    Raising the Curtain, through the study of women performers in colonial and Independent India, problematises the question of gender and patriarchy. Women performers, being the most public women, unsettle the category of gender divided along castes, class, sexuality and the private/public paradigm. Women performers do not form a homogenous category; their roles, agency, issues, concerns and lives differ significantly because of their different social and cultural locations Read more...

Literature & rhetoric (800-899)
  1. Rooster bar
  2. by Grisham, John | 813.54 GRI | 031357
    The multi-layered plot is inventively sustained and, as always with Grisham, the scintillating storytelling serves to highlight a substantial issue: the ruinous repercussions of graduate debt and the scandal of "diploma mill" colleges — The Sunday Times Read more...
