1. ## Vectors and Matrices for Geometric and 3D Modeling

Vectors are perhaps the most important mathematical objects used in modeling and animation. They have the properties of magnitude and direction, and provide visual understanding of model construction and analysis. Matrices are natural and hardworking partners of vectors.

This work presents lessons on vectors and matrices in geometric and 3D modeling—the mathematics at the foundation of computer graphics applications. The lessons appear as chapters, generally organized from introductory to more complex topics. Within each chapter, there is a similar order of elementary-to-advanced discussion.

5. ## Machine Design Elements and Assemblies

Over Michael Spektor’s illustrious career in industry and academia, he has searched for a better resource from which to teach his students, and a way to improve current texts to better reflect the proper structure of how machine elements are presented, and introduce the calculations and design considerations necessary for creating assemblies. The result is this textbook, which is the first available to students of the course Machine Design (also called “Machine Elements”) that truly prepares them to meet industry challenges by accelerating their introduction to solving real-life engineering programs. Machine Design Elements and Assemblies methodically describes the material in a way that broadens and deepens the engineering knowledge related to the design of mechanical systems, in a much more concise, less expensive package.

9. ## Industrial and Manufacturing Wellness

When humans are “well,” they are in a state where body, mind, and spirit are holistically integrated, and are healthy, happy, and resilient.  The same can be said for a business.  Industry and Manufacturing Wellness explains how to use Reliability Engineering principles to design and create companies that are robust, reliable, self-improving, integrated business systems best suited for getting maximum success in today’s and tomorrow’s world.

This revolutionary work goes well beyond the plant to show a completely new way to engineer, design, and build business processes and work flow that deliver overall operational excellence to a company. The work introduces risk management, decision-making methods that prove the worth – or not – of a change before it’s initiated in the organization, thus protecting against making wrong choices. These universally applicable process improvement concepts makes readers take a system-wide approach that can be repeated infinitely to deliver the utmost operational success.
