Engineering Analysis: Advanced Mathematical Methods for Engineers introduces graduate engineering students to the fundamental but advanced mathematics tools used in engineering application, especially in mechanical, aerospace and civil engineering. Most engineering problems are described by differential equations, particularly partial differential equations (PDEs). Deformation and failure in solid structures, fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass diffusion are all governed by PDEs in general. Many physical quantities in engineering are tensors, including deformation gradient, strain rates, stresses, elastic stiffness, and thermal conductivity of composite materials. This book helps engineering graduate students develop the skills to establish the mathematical models of engineering problems and to solve the problems described by the mathematical models.

Graph Based Multimedia Analysis applies graph theory to the problems of analyzing an over-abundance of video data. Video data can be diverse: exocentric (captured by standard camera) or egocentric (captured by a wearable device like Google glass); of various durations; from multiple sources. Efficient extraction of important/useful information from such a large class of diverse inputs can be overwhelming. The book, with its rich repertoire of theoretically elegant solutions, empowers the audience to achieve tasks like obtaining concise yet useful summary and precisely recognizing single as well as multiple actions in a computationally efficient manner.

Unlike metals, non-metallic electro-conductive textiles are polymeric, flexible, durable, moldable, and light weight. A brilliant quality of these textiles is the capability to alter conductivity through various external stimuli (e.g., strain, torsion, pH, humidity) to suit a specific application such as sensors, heating garments, EMI shielding, energy harvesting devices, wearable electronics and more.Based on these concepts, the title has been structured into three main sections. Section I contains chapters discussing the various preparation methods of electro-conductive textiles, Section II contains chapters on their characteristics and features and Section III details the end-use applications and sustainability of these textiles.
