A comprehensive reference to the current understanding of solid-earth geophysics, chapters are based on papers presented at the SEDI (Structure of the Earth's Deep Interior) meeting in Canada 1994. The papers represent a synopsis of the current thinking behind a number of large, mostly unsolved, problems such as the detailed mechanism whereby the Earth's magnetic field is maintained, the question of the physical and chemical nature of the core mantle boundary (CMB), and the nature of the convection in the mantle that drives the surface tectonic plates.
This practical tutorial reviews the essentials of C programming for microcontrollers and examines in detail the issues faced when writing C code. Included is a CD-ROM for Windows containing all C code used in the book, compilers of popular microcontrollers, and a fully searchable electronic version of the book. 35 line drawings.
A major revision of the bestselling "bible" of amateur robotics building--packed with the latest in servo motor technology, microcontrolled robots, remote control, Lego Mindstorms Kits, and other commercial kits. Gives electronics hobbyists fully illustrated plans for 11 complete Robots, as well as all-new coverage of Robotix-based Robots, Lego Technic-based Robots, Functionoids with Lego Mindstorms, and Location and Motorized Systems with Servo Motors.Features a pictures and parts list that accompany all projects, and material on using the BASIC Stamp and other microcontrollers.
