The 21st century manufacturing and production environment can be characterized by the paradigm of delivering products of increasing variety, lower demand and higher quality in the context of expanding global competition. In order to realize this manufacturing paradigm and facilitate coordinated efforts across different departments, more and more companies are moving into computer-integrated production systems where computer technology is widely used to support design, manufacturing, and business operation in an integrated fashion. The core of this computer technology includes computer-aid

Music is a language. And, like most languages, it has a written form and an audible form.
Nearly everyone can speak and understand their native language, but not everyone can read and write it as well as they would like.

Quite often such musicians can be very skilled at this process, and yet still not understand or be able to use the music notation system.

Linear Algebra is a powerful tool that allows scientists to model physical phenomena and efficiently solve the systems of equations that arise from them. It is essential to almost every field of mathematics, such as geometry, topology, number theory, and abstract algebra. As such, it is not only computationally useful, with applications in data science, quantum mechanics, statistics, computer science, and all branches of engineering, but it also a great opportunity for the student to explore the beauty and elegance of mathematics.
A current, thorough, conversational, and scientifically sound resource on meteorology.
A World of Weather: Fundamentals of Meteorology presents basic principles that enable students to gain a “thorough possession” of the underlying scientific principles of meteorology and to be able to think critically about them. This text shows how fundamental concepts fit together to form a conceptual pyramid that explains how the atmosphere really works. It shows students how to apply the concepts learned by offering examples based on real weather data.
About Music: Critical Listening Skills explains the fascinating aspects of the fundamentals of sound, how musical instruments work, the mechanics of hearing, and how we neurologically process the musical sounds we make. Add to that the way music and sound is recorded, manipulated, and stored, and a whole new way to observe our craft has been revealed in this text. Often these fundamental aspects of music are overlooked or ignored in a curriculum of study of music and music teaching. It is a fascinating trip through the science of acoustics.
