Book description
This hands-on-guide was written to as an entry-level textbook and starts with the fundamentals of programming the 8051. The book then covers a wide range of subjects with example code written in both Assembly and C. Programming concepts from low-level bit manipulation to high-level state-space based applications software are discussed. The material builds up to all the ingredients to build your own robot. The book comes with, Reads51 software, an integrated development environment, which runs on an IBM PC or compatible host. Reads51 contains a C compiler, relative assembler, linker/locator, editor, chip simulator, assembly language debugger, and host-to-board communications in a user-friendly, menu-driven environment. The complete source co... Rest of this review on the detail page

The first thing you will find out about this book is that it is fun to read. It is meant for the browser, as well as for the student and for the specialist wanting to know about the area. The footnotes give an historical background to the text, in addition to providing deeper applications of the concept that is being cited. This allows the browser to look more deeply into the history or to pursue a given sideline. Those who are only marginally interested in the area will be able to read the text, pick up information easily, and be entertained at the same time by the historical and philosophical digressions. It is rich in structure and motivation in its concentration upon quadratic orders.This is not a book that is primarily about tables, al... Rest of this review on the detail page

Book description
What do the music of J. S. Bach, the basic forces of nature, Rubik's Cube, and the selection of mates have in common? They are all characterized by certain symmetries. Symmetry is the concept that bridges the gap between science and art, between the world of theoretical physics and the everyday world we see around us. Yet the "language" of symmetry--group theory in mathematics--emerged from a most unlikely source: an equation that couldn't be solved. Over the millennia, mathematicians solved progressively more difficult algebraic equations until they came to what is known as the quintic equation. For several centuries it resisted solution, until two mathematical prodigies independently discovered that it could not be solved by the usual met... Rest of this review on the detail page
