Modelling and Control of Robot Manipulators - Lorenzo Sciavicco, Bruno Siciliano
Fundamental and technological topics are blended uniquely and developed clearly in nine chapters - with a gradually increasing level of complexity. A wide variety of relevant problems is raised throughout, and the proper tools to find engineering-oriented solutions are introduced and explained, step by step. Fundamental coverage includes kinematics, statics and dynamics of manipulators, and trajectory planning and motion control in free space. Technological aspects include actuators, sensors,

Nonlinear Systems Analysis - M. Vidyasagar
When M. Vidyasagar wrote the first edition of Nonlinear Systems Analysis, most control theorists considered the subject of nonlinear systems a mystery. Since then, advances in the application of differential geometric methods to nonlinear analysis have matured to a stage where every control theorist needs to possess knowledge of the basic techniques because virtually all physical systems are nonlinear in nature. The second edition provides a rigorous mathematical analysis of the behaviour of

Arm System-On-Chip Architecture - Steve Furber
The future of the computer and communications industries is converging on mobile information appliances - phones, PDAs, laptops and other devices. The ARM is at the heart of this trend, leading the way in system-on-chip (SoC) development and becoming the processor core of choice for many embedded applications. System-on-chip technology is changing the way we use computers, but it also sets designers the very challenging problem of getting a complex SoC design right first time. ARM

North American F-86 Sabre Owners' Workshop Manual: An insight into owning, flying, and maintaining the USAF's legendary - Mark Linney
The North American F-86 Sabre was the first operational Allied swept-wing transonic jet fighter of the postwar era. It was flown with distinction by the USAF in the Korean War where it was pitted against the Soviet MiG-15. The centerpiece of this Haynes Manual is Golden Apple Operations’ F-86A, 48-178, the sole-surviving airworthy example of the first production Sabre A model, as well as the world’s oldest flying jet-powered aircraft.

Mustang Designer: Edgar Schmued and the P-51 - Ray Wagner
Mustang Designer tells the story of American wartime fighter development, including engines and armaments, as part of a nationwide program of aircraft builders and fliers, focusing on Edgar Schmued, the designer of the Mustang. The P-51 Mustang is widely regarded as the best propeller-driven fighter that ever flew. What many might not realize is that the plane's developer was a German migrant. This book tells of how Schmued created a weapon that would ultimately prove lethal to the aspirations
