Presented in an easy-to-use format, this second edition of Formulas and Calculations for Drilling Operations is a quick reference for day-to-day work out on the rig. It also serves as a handy study guide for drilling and well control certification courses. Virtually all the mathematics required on a drilling rig is here in one convenient source, including formulas for pressure gradient, specific gravity, pump, output, annular velocity, buoyancy factor, and many other topics. Whether open on your desk, on the hood of your truck at the well, or on an offshore platform, this is the only book available that covers the gamut of the formulas and calculations for petroleum engineers that have been compiled over decades. Some of these formulas and calculations have been used for decades, while others are meant to help guide the engineer through some of the more recent breakthroughs in the industry’s technology, such as hydraulic fracturing and enhanced oil recovery. There is no other source for these useful formulas and calculations that is this thorough. An instant classic when the first edition was published, the much-improved revision is even better, offering new information not available in the first edition, making it as up-to-date as possible in book form. Truly a state-of-the-art masterpiece for the oil and gas industry, if there is only one book you buy to help you do your job, this is it!

Fault analysis of highly-integrated semiconductor circuits has become an indispensable discipline in the optimization of product quality. Integrated Circuit Failure Analysis describes state-of-the-art procedures for exposing suspected failure sites in semiconductor devices. The author adopts a hands-on problem-oriented approach, founded on many years of practical experience, complemented by the explanation of basic theoretical principles. Features include: Advanced methods in device preparation and technical procedures for package inspection and semiconductor reliability. Illustration of chip isolation and step-by-step delayering of chips by wet chemical and modern plasma dry etching techniques. Particular analysis of bipolar and MOS circuits, although techniques are equally relevant to other semiconductors. Advice on the choice of suitable laboratory equipment. Numerous photographs and drawings providing guidance for checking results. Focusing on modern techniques, this practical text will enable both academic and industrial researchers and IC designers to expand the range of analytical and preparative methods at their disposal and to adapt to the needs of new technologies.

Now in its fifth edition, A Mathematics Sampler presents mathematics as both science and art, focusing on the historical role of mathematics in our culture. It uses selected topics from modern mathematics including computers, perfect numbers, and four-dimensional geometry to exemplify the distinctive features of mathematics as an intellectual endeavor, a problem-solving tool, and a way of thinking about the rapidly changing world in which we live. A Mathematics Sampler also includes unique LINK sections throughout the book, each of which connects mathematical concepts with areas of interest throughout the humanities. The original course on which this text is based was cited as an innovative approach to liberal arts mathematics in Lynne Cheney's report, "50 HOURS: A Core Curriculum for College Students," published by the National Endowment for the Humanities."
