Synchronization and Linearity: An Algebra for Discrete Event Systems
by F. Baccelli, G. Cohen, G. J. Olsder, J. Quadrat
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons 1993
Number of pages: 501
This text presents new modelling and analysis techniques for the description of discrete event dynamic systems, emphasizing timing and synchronization aspects. Created within the text is a calculus which allows the derivation of analytical tools for computing the time behavior of this type of dynamic system.

Shape interrogation is the process of extraction of information from a geometric model. It is a fundamental component of CAD/CAM systems. The authors focus on shape interrogation of geometric models bounded by free-form surfaces.

This volume presents the problem of providing a surrogate or synthetic human for designers and engineers. The book is intended for engineers interested in understanding how a computer surrogate human can augment their analyses of designed environments.
