Title: Linear Representations of Finite
Groups (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
Author: Jean-Pierra Serre
-This book consists of three parts, rather different in
level and purpose. The first part was originally written
for quantum chemists. It describes the correspondence,
due to Frobenius, between linear representations and
characters. The second part is a course given in 1966 to
second-year students of l’Ecole Normale. It completes
in a certain sense the first part. The third part is an
introduction to Brauer Theory.

Title: Mining the social web
Author: Matthew A. Russell.
- Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn generate a tremendous
amount of valuable social data, but how can you find out
who's making connections with social media, what they're
talking about, or where they're located? This book shows you
how to answer these questions and more. Each chapter
introduces techniques for mining data in different areas of
the social web, including blogs and email.

3 Title: PIC microcontroller : an
introduction to software and hardware
Author: Han-Way Huang.
-This book presents a thorough introduction to the Microchip
PIC microcontroller family, including all of the PIC
programming and interfacing for all the peripheral functions.
A step-by-step approach to PIC assembly language
programming is presented, with tutorials that demonstrate
how to use such inherent development tools such as the
Integrated Development Environment MPLAB, PIC18 C
compiler, the ICD2 in-circuit debugger, and several demo
boards. Comprehensive coverage spans the topics of
interrupts, timer functions, parallel I/O ports, various serial
communications such as USART, SPI, I2C, CAN, A/D converters,
and external memory expansion.

4 Title: Programming 32-bit
microcontrollers in C : exploring
Author: Lucio Di Jasio.
- The new 32-bit microcontrollers bring the promise of more
speed and more performance while offering an
unprecedented level of compatibility with existing 8 and 16-
bit PIC microcontrollers. In sixteen engaging chapters, using
a parallel track to his previous title dedicated to 16-bit
programming, the author puts all these claims to test while
offering a gradual introduction to the development and
debugging of embedded control applications in C.

5 Title: Megaproject management : lessons
on risk and project management from the
Author: Virginia A. Greiman.
-In Megaproject Management, a central member of the Big
Dig team reveals the numerous risks, challenges, and
accomplishments of the most complex urban infrastructure
project in the history of the United States. Drawing on
personal experience and interviews with project engineers,
executive oversight commission officials, and core
managers, the author, a former deputy counsel and risk
manager for the Big Dig, develops new insights as she
describes the realities of day-to-day management of the
project from a project manager's perspective.

Title: Construction management for
industrial projects : a modular guide for
Author: Mohamed A. El-Reedy.
- This book presents techniques for effective and
successful project management across all phases of
the project, covering all of the management tools and
leadership skills for any industrial project. It presents
advanced modern tools for use by management and
engineers in decision making, and it covers the gap
between project management theories of the actual
project. This volume is a "one-stop shop" for project
and construction management of industrial projects,
for engineers, managers, owners, and anyone else
working on the project.

Title: The elements of statistical learning
: data mining, inference, and prediction
Authors: Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani
and Jerome Friedman.
- During the past decade there has been an explosion in
computation and information technology. With it have come
vast amounts of data in a variety of fields such as medicine,
biology, finance, and marketing. The challenge of
understanding these data has led to the development of new
tools in the field of statistics, and spawned new areas such
as data mining, machine learning, and bioinformatics. Many
of these tools have common underpinnings but are often
expressed with different terminology. This book describes
the important ideas in these areas in a common conceptual
framework. While the approach is statistical, the emphasis is
on concepts rather than mathematics. Many examples are
given, with a liberal use of color graphics. It is a valuable
resource for statisticians and anyone interested in data
mining in science or industry. The book's coverage is broad,
from supervised learning (prediction) to unsupervised
learning. The many topics include neural networks, support
vector machines, classification trees and boosting---the
first comprehensive treatment of this topic in any book.

8 Title: Embedded system design : Embedded
Systems Foundations of Cyber-Physical Systems
Author: Peter Marwedel
- Embedded System Design starts with an introduction into
the area and a survey of specification models and languages
for embedded and cyber-physical systems. It provides a
brief overview of hardware devices used for such systems
and presents the essentials of system software for
embedded systems, like real-time operating systems. The
book also discusses evaluation and validation techniques for
embedded systems. Furthermore, the book presents an
overview of techniques for mapping applications to
execution platforms. Due to the importance of resource
efficiency, the book also contains a selected set of
optimization techniques for embedded systems, including
special compilation techniques. The book closes with a brief
survey on testing.
