The Designer's Guide to Low Jitter Oscillators emphasizes jitter for time domain applications so that there is not a need to translate from frequency domain. This provides a more direct path to the results for designing in an application area where performance is specified in the time domain. The book includes classification of oscillator types and an exhaustive guide to existing research literature which allows designers to find appropriate publications for more detailed design guidance. It also includes classification of measurement techniques to help designers understand how the eventual performance of circuit design is verified. This book contains a CD-ROM with MATLAB examples of design optimization, system level behavioral simulation, and intuitive presentation of probability background.
The Designer's Guide to Low Jitter Oscillators is a companion to The Designera (TM)s Guide to High Purity Oscillators by Hegazi, Rael, and Abidi. This book is for practicing designers with BS or MS degrees and researchers working in fields where noise requirements are specified in the time domain.
This book offers an easy-to-use and practice-oriented reference guide to mathematical averages. It presents different ways of aggregating input values given on a numerical scale, and of choosing and/or constructing aggregating functions for specific applications. Building on a previous monograph by Beliakov et al. published by Springer in 2007, it outlines new aggregation methods developed in the interim, with a special focus on the topic of averaging aggregation functions. It examines recent advances in the field, such as aggregation on lattices, penalty-based aggregation and weakly monotone averaging, and extends many of the already existing methods, such as: ordered weighted averaging (OWA), fuzzy integrals and mixture functions. A substantial mathematical background is not called for, as all the relevant mathematical notions are explained here and reported on together with a wealth of graphical illustrations of distinct families of aggregation functions. The authors mainly focus on practical applications and give central importance to the conciseness of exposition, as well as the relevance and applicability of the reported methods, offering a valuable resource for computer scientists, IT specialists, mathematicians, system architects, knowledge engineers and programmers, as well as for anyone facing the issue of how to combine various inputs into a single output value.

This anthology of poems is set against the background of World War I - 'The Great War'. It strives to capture the emotions of those involved in The Great War and to describe their different perspectives. The collection covers the early days of the war and the excitement that came with it - 'He Volunteered' is based on this stage of the war. The reality of the situation that soldiers found themselves in is expressed in 'Never in a Billion Tears' and 'Fastest Finger First'. The camaraderie and the friendships that developed during the war are described in 'Since We Were Boys', and the 'disconnect' between the infantry and the general staff is described in 'Futility Rooms'. The views of the general public were an important aspect of the war, and some of these appear in 'What Do I Know?'.
