Making sense of LOGIC just got a whole lot EASIER! Stumped trying to understand logic? It's time to listen to reason! There's no doubt that Logic Demystified will help you master this challenging subject. Written in a step-by-step format, this practical guide begins by covering arguments, validity, and truth tables. You'll move on to propositional and predicate logic, rigor, fallacies, paradoxes, and revelations. Proofs, Boolean algebra, the logic of machines, and sets are discussed as is the illogic of time, matter, space, and chaos. Detailed examples and concise explanations make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce learning. It's a no-brainer! You'll get: Rules for reasoning Quantified statements and theorems Simple and classical paradoxes Strategies for proofs Basic set theory and machine logic A time-saving approach to performing better on homework, an exam, or at work Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Logic Demystified helps you validate your knowledge of this multidisciplinary topic.

For All Women Who Want Faith that Engages Their Hearts and Minds God has given every woman the ability to have an extraordinary faith--one that involves both the heart and the mind. Yet many women's faith is grounded solely in their hearts, leaving them unable to defend their faith or susceptible to the latest spiritual fads. In this book, Patty includes real-life stories and examples, including her own experience coming to Christ after a ten-year search for truth. She reveals how beliefs are not just about the intellect--they play an active role in behavior, in relationships, and in families. Finally, she demonstrates how you can share and defend your faith to those you love in a persuasive yet relational way. Includes questions for personal study and large or small groups.

Almost every student has to study some sort of mathematical proofs, whether it be in geometry, trigonometry, or with higher-level topics. In addition, mathematical theorems have become an interesting course for many students outside of the mathematical arena, purely for the reasoning and logic that is needed to complete them. Therefore, it is not uncommon to have philosophy and law students grappling with proofs. This book is the perfect resource for demystifying the techniques and principles that govern the mathematical proof area, and is done with the standard “Demystified” level, questions and answers, and accessibility.

The field of teaching digital electronics has not changed significantly in the past 20 years. Many of the same books that first became available in the late 1970s and early 1980s are still being used as basic texts. In the 20+ years since these were written, the basic rules have not changed, but they do not provide strong links to modern electronics including CMOS logic, Programmable Logic Devices and microprocessor/microcontroller interfacing. Courses teaching introductory digital electronics will fill in the missing areas of information for students, but neither the instructors nor students have resources to explain modern technology and interfaces. One assumption made by all the standard texts is that experimenting with digital electronics cannot be done easily - in the proposed book, “digital guru” Myke Predko will show how readers can set up their own apparatus for experimenting with digital electronics for less than $10.

Unicode is a critical enabling technology for developers who want to internationalize applications for global environments. But, until now, developers have had to turn to standards documents for crucial information on utilizing Unicode. In Unicode Demystified, one of IBM's leading software internationalization experts covers every key aspect of Unicode development, offering practical examples and detailed guidance for integrating Unicode 3.0 into virtually any application or environment. Writing from a developer's point of view, Rich Gillam presents a systematic introduction to Unicode's goals, evolution, and key elements. Gillam illuminates the Unicode standards documents with insightful discussions of character properties, the Unicode character database, storage formats, character sequences, Unicode normalization, character encoding conversion, and more. He presents practical techniques for text processing, locating text boundaries, searching, sorting, rendering text, accepting user input, and other key development tasks. Along the way, he offers specific guidance on integrating Unicode with other technologies, including Java, JavaScript, XML, and the Web. For every developer building internationalized applications, internationalizing existing applications, or interfacing with systems that already utilize Unicode.
