Practicing designers, students, and educators in the semiconductor field face an ever expanding portfolio of MOSFET models. In "Compact MOSFET Models for VLSI Design," A.B. Bhattacharyya presents a unified perspective on the topic, allowing the practitioner to view and interpret device phenomena concurrently using different modeling strategies. Readers will learn to link device physics with model parameters, helping to close the gap between device understanding and its use for optimal circuit performance. Bhattacharyya also lays bare the core physical concepts that will drive the future of VLSI development, allowing readers to stay ahead of the curve, despite the relentless evolution of new models.
Adopts a unified approach to guide students through the confusing array of MOSFET models Links MOS physics to device models to prepare practitioners for real-world design activities Helps fabless designers bridge the gap with off-site foundries Features rich coverage of: quantum mechanical related phenomena Si-Ge strained-Silicon substrate non-classical structures such as Double Gate MOSFETs Presents topics that will prepare readers for long-term developments in the field Includes solutions in every chapter Can be tailored for use among students and professionals of many levels Comes with MATLAB code downloads for independent practice and advanced study
This book is essential for students specializing in VLSI Design and indispensible for design professionals in the microelectronics and VLSI industries. Written to serve a number of experience levels, it can be used either as a course textbook or practitioner's reference.

Particulate discrete element analysis is becoming increasingly popular for research in geomechanics as well as geology, chemical engineering, powder technology, petroleum engineering and in studying the physics of granular materials. With increased computing power, practising engineers are also becoming more interested in using this technology for analysis in industrial applications. This is the first single work on Discrete Element Modelling (DEM) providing the information to get started with this powerful numerical modelling approach.
Written by an independent author with experience both in developing DEM codes and using commercial codes, this book provides the basic details of the numerical method and the approaches used to interpret the results of DEM simulations. Providing a basic overview of the numerical method, Particulate Discrete Element Modelling discusses issues related to time integration and numerical stability, particle types, contact modelling and boundary conditions. It summarizes approaches to interpret DEM data so that users can maximize their insight into the material response using DEM. The aim of this book is to provide both users and prospective users of DEM with a concise reference book that includes tips to optimize their usage.
Particulate Discrete Element Modelling is suitable both for first time DEM analysts as well as more experienced users. It will be of use to professionals, researchers and higher level students, as it presents a theoretical overview of DEM as well as practical guidance on running DEM simulations and interpreting DEM simulation data.
A modern approach to mathematical modeling, featuring unique applications from the field of mechanics
An Introduction to Mathematical Modeling: A Course in Mechanics is designed to survey the mathematical models that form the foundations of modern science and incorporates examples that illustrate how the most successful models arise from basic principles in modern and classical mathematical physics. Written by a world authority on mathematical theory and computational mechanics, the book presents an account of continuum mechanics, electromagnetic field theory, quantum mechanics, and statistical mechanics for readers with varied backgrounds in engineering, computer science, mathematics, and physics.
The author streamlines a comprehensive understanding of the topic in three clearly organized sections:
Each part of the book concludes with exercise sets that allow readers to test their understanding of the presented material. Key theorems and fundamental equations are highlighted throughout, and an extensive bibliography outlines resources for further study.
Extensively class-tested to ensure an accessible presentation, An Introduction to Mathematical Modeling is an excellent book for courses on introductory mathematical modeling and statistical mechanics at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. The book also serves as a valuable reference for professionals working in the areas of modeling and simulation, physics, and computational engineering.
Responsibility and professionalism are increasingly issues of concern for professional associations, employers and educators alike. When bad things happen, professionals are often held personally accountable for complex situations.Professional Responsibility and Professionalism advances our approaches to professional responsibility from individual-centred, virtue-based prescriptions towards understanding and responding effectively to the multi-faceted challenges encountered today by professionals working in dynamic complexity. The author applies a sociomaterial examination to specific examples drawn from different professional contexts of practice. She examines important implications for what professional responsibility and accountability might mean individually and collectively, and what it might be becoming when demands increasingly conflict, and when we accept that capacities for action are performed into existence in emergent and precarious webs of both human and nonhuman forces.
The chapters explore some of the most prominent questions in professional responsibility, including:
A major concern addressed by each chapter and the book as a whole is educating professionals in and for responsibility. Specific dilemmas and strategies are offered for educators in universities, workplaces and professional development contexts who seek new approaches to helping professionals learn to critically understand and practice responsibility today.
This book will appeal to a wide audience of education researchers and post-graduate students studying professional practice, professionalism and education across a wide range of disciplines. Health professions, professionals working in private practices, such as law, architecture and engineering, newer professions such as social work and policing, and educational professions at all levels will find stories and strategies reflecting key issues of their practice in this detailed exploration of professional responsibility and accountability.
