Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The book should be read by students, scientists and engineers who use microprocessors as control or real-time computational components in equipment. A study of the areas relevant to his work will yield new knowledge and understanding and the whole book may give ideas which can be applied to further their own work.'
Kybernetics, 15 (1986)
