This book provides an introduction to mathematics applied to electronics, computers, electromechanics, and automation. Organized to be compatible with electric circuit books currently in use, its content balances a formal proof-orientation against the need for expediency in developing a broad, general mathematics ability. KEY TOPICS Chapter topics cover algebra fundamentals, fractions, graphs, linear equations, logarithmic and exponential functions, angles and triangles, vectors and phasors, alternating-current circuits, mathematical analysis, computer numbers systems, and mathematics of computer logic.

For Mathematics majors.

A textbook for courses or self-study within an electronics curriculum and designed to be used in conjunction with any of the popular texts on electric circuits. Assuming only a knowledge of mathematical fundamentals, proceeds from pre-algebra through number notation, the fundamentals of algebra, evaluating formulas, and linear equations. Explains scientific calculators at the beginning and requires them henceforth. Complementary educational support material is available from the publisher. No bibliography. Previously published between 1980 and 1988. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
