This book covers basic principles of telecommunications and their applications in the design and analysis of modern networks and systems. Aimed to make telecommunications engineering easily accessible to students, this book contains numerous worked examples, case studies and review questions at the end of each section. Readers of the book can thus easily check their understanding of the topics progressively. To render the book more hands-on, MATLAB® software package is used to explain some of the concepts. Parts of this book are taught in undergraduate curriculum, while the rest is taught in graduate courses.Telecommunications Engineering: Theory and Practice treats both traditional and modern topics, such as blockchain, OFDM, OFDMA, SC-FDMA, LPDC codes, arithmetic coding, polar codes and non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA).

Less expensive and more environmentally appropriate than conventional engineering approaches, constructed ecosystems are a promising technology for environmental problem solving. Undergraduates, graduate students, and working professionals need an introductory text that details the biology and ecology of this rapidly developing discipline, known as ecological engineering. Ecological Engineering: Principles and Practice fills this need by describing ecological concepts and theory and demonstrating their application to constructed ecosystems. It presents highly visible and widespread applications of ecological engineering, including treatment wetlands, microcosms, composting systems, restoration ecology, soil bioengineering, and invasive species control.

Many graduates of formal educational programs do not enter the work force ready to approach or solve the complex problems faced by Systems Engineers (SE). This book describes the processes and practices commonly employed for Systems Engineering which provide a greater depth of understanding for Systems Engineers and Systems Engineering Managers. Earlier chapters present an overview of the Systems Engineering Processes; the Technical processes, Project processes, and Organizational (Enterprise) processes; Life-Cycle Stages; Enabling Systems Engineering processes; Systems Engineering Support Activities; Specialty Engineering Activities; and SE processes Tailoring. Later chapters describe the Systems Engineering Processes and Practice including Standard SE processes; the Stakeholder Requirements Definition Process; the Requirements Definition Process; the Logical Decomposition Process and Functional Analysis and Allocation; the Systems Architecture Process; and the Trade Study Process.

This book details the foundations, new developments and methods, applications, and current challenges of systems engineering (SE). It provides key insights into SE as a concept and as an approach based on the holistic view on the entire lifecycle (requirements, design, production, and exploitation) of complex engineering systems, such as spacecraft, aircraft, power plants, and ships. Written by leading international experts, the book describes the achievements of the holistic, transdisciplinary approach of SE as state of the art both in research and practice using case study examples from originating at universities and companies such as Airbus, BAE Systems, BMW, Boeing, and COMAC. The reader obtains a comprehensive insight into the still existing challenges of the concept of SE today and the various forms in which SE is applied in a variety of areas.

Systems engineering has been applied to some of the most important projects of our time, including those that have helped humanity explore the world and the universe, expand our technical abilities, and enhance the quality of human life. Without formal training in systems engineering, the discipline is often difficult to understand and apply, and its use within projects is often confusing. Systems Engineering for Projects: Achieving Positive Outcomes in a Complex World provides an approach that utilizes a combination of the most effective processes from both project management and systems engineering disciplines in a simplified and straightforward manner. The processes described in the book are lightweight, flexible, and tailorable. They provide the shortest path to success in projects across the entire project life cycle, from research to operations, and from simple to the most complex. The book also addresses how this methodology can be used in a continually adapting and changing world, as projects span disciplines and become even more interconnected across all areas of human existence. Each chapter includes diagrams, templates, summary lists, a case study, and a thought-provoking question and answer section that assists readers in immediate application of the material to their own projects. The book is a project manager’s resource for understanding how to directly apply essential processes to projects in a way that increases the probability of achieving success. It is a comprehensive, go-to manual on the application of systems engineering processes to projects of all types and complexity.

Decision Making in Systems Engineering and Management is a comprehensive textbook that provides a logical process and analytical techniques for fact-based decision making for the most challenging systems problems. Grounded in systems thinking and based on sound systems engineering principles, the systems decisions process (SDP) leverages multiple objective decision analysis, multiple attribute value theory, and value-focused thinking to define the problem, measure stakeholder value, design creative solutions, explore the decision trade off space in the presence of uncertainty, and structure successful solution implementation. In addition to classical systems engineering problems, this approach has been successfully applied to a wide range of challenges including personnel recruiting, retention, and management; strategic policy analysis; facilities design and management; resource allocation; information assurance; security systems design; and other settings whose structure can be conceptualized as a system.
