Overview

Modern and comprehensive, the new Fifth Edition of Zill's Advanced Engineering Mathematics, Fifth Edition provides an in depth overview of the many mathematical topics required for students planning a career in engineering or the sciences. A key strength of this best-selling text is Zill's emphasis on differential equations as mathematical models, discussing the constructs and pitfalls of each. The Fifth Edition is a full compendium of topics that are most often covered in the Engineering Mathematics course or courses, and is extremely flexible, to meet the unique needs of various course offerings ranging from ordinary differential equations to vector calculus. The new edition offers a reorganized project section to add clarity to course material and new content has been added throughout, including new discussions on: Autonomous Des and Direction Fields; Translation Property, Bessel Functions, LU-Factorization, Da Vinci's apparatus for determining speed and more.

The Essentials of Computer Organization and Architecture, Fourth Edition was recently awarded a "Textbook Excellence Award" (“Texty”) from the Text and Academic Authors Association (TAA) the only association devoted solely to serving textbook and academic authors since 1987 (www.TAAonline.net). The "Textbook Excellence Award" recognizes works for their excellence in the areas of content, presentation, appeal, and teachability. This is the third Texty award for Null and Lobur. They also won for their Second and Third Editions of this text.
