Modern Coding Theory Tom Richardson and Ruediger Urbanke École Polytechnique Fédérale, Lausanne

Deciding which coding scheme to employ, how to design a new scheme, or how to improve an existing system? This summary of modern iterative coding makes the decision more straightforward by presenting the techniques to analyse and design practical iterative coding systems. Resources available online: www.cambridge.org/9780521852296. ‘There is definitely a market for a book focusing on LDPC codes, and Tom Richardson and Reudiger Urbanke would be on anyone’s short list to write that book. They have made substantive contributions to the theory and practice of LDPC codes. I believe this book will become required reading for researchers in LDPC codes at universities and communications companies around the world.’ Thomas Fuja, University of Notre Dame 2008 247 x 174 mm 592pp 150 b/w illus.  185 exercises   978-0-521-85229-6 Hardback £45.00

Ideal for researchers in fields from computational neuroscience through to electronic engineering, this book addresses theoretical aspects of stochastic quantization, in the context of the suprathreshold stochastic resonance effect. Each chapter ends with a review of the main points, and open questions to guide researchers in finding new research directions. ‘… the joint authors of this book adopt a pragmatic approach to these essentially semantic issues and point to the widespread acceptance and use of terminology as a justification for giving attention to more substantive issues associated with understanding and using stochastic resonance in its several forms. … A major strength of this book is its capture of the expertise of four leading exponents of stochastic resonance research. Four heads here certainly provide an optimal performance. Take home messages from all the chapters are provided in clear ‘in a nutshell’ summaries. Open questions are also highlighted in this way. The book includes an extensive set of references and is generally presented to a very high standard. … the authors have rendered a major service to a multidisciplinary research community which can benefit from the clarity of exposition offered in this book. It is to be hoped that that community will repay its debt to these authors by taking forward wherever possible applications of stochastic resonance.’ Contemporary Physics 2008 247 x 174 mm 448pp 125 b/w illus.   978-0-521-88262-0 Hardback £80.00 eBook available

Do you need to get up to speed quickly on LTE? Understand the new technologies of the standard and their impact on system performance improvements with this practical guide. You’ll get a strong grounding in the technical details and fascinating insights into why particular technologies were chosen in the development process. ‘This text is especially helpful as an accompaniment to the 3GPP specifications themselves, which offer no explanations as to why one thing or another is included, no hint as to why one protocol technique was chosen over another, or why certain contributions appear only to disappear in later releases. Khan’s text offers a welcome set of explanations for pretty much all the mysteries in the specifications; the book gave me a sense of having sat through the LTE formulation process itself. … Farooq Khan gives us a rigorous exploration of the contributing technologies and practices with all the whys and wherefores disclosed. The book is, in my view, a critical accompaniment to the LTE specifications for readers who prefer to understand what they are reading and would like to be able to interpret and actually use the LTE specifications.’ Malcolm Oliphant, Award Solutions Inc.

Materials Engineering / Aerospace Engineering Dissociative Recombination of Molecular Ions Mats Larsson Stockholms Universitet

and Ann E. Orel University of California, Davis

Dissociative recombination of molecular ions with electrons is a complex, poorly understood molecular process. For the first time, theoretical concepts, experimental methodology and applications are united in one book revealing the governing principles behind the gas-phase reaction. It will appeal to academics within physics, physical chemistry and related sciences. ‘The authors display in-depth knowledge of the subject and have accomplished a definitive critical review of the theories, experiments and applications of DR reactions of molecular ions with electrons.’ Materials World Cambridge Molecular Science
