Editorial Reviews

Engineers from Oceana, North America, and western and eastern Europe provide a reference for engineers in industry, designers, managers, researchers, and students who have measurement problems. They describe the use of instruments and techniques for practical measurements required in engineering, physics, chemistry, and the life sciences. Among them are sensors, hardware and software, information processing systems, automatic data acquisition, reduction, and analysis. The articles include specialized information for specialists seeking an advanced application, evaluative opinions, and possible areas for future study; they start however with basic concepts that even high school students who have taken algebra can understand.
