Enhanced Visualization  Making Space for 3-D Images, Blundell, Barry G.
1 Blundell, Barry G. Enhanced Visualization Making Space for 3-D Images
Hoboken NJ Wiley-Interscience 2007 0471786292 / 9780471786290 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
B&W Illustrations; 9.30 X 6.30 X 1.20 inches; 425 pages; This book builds on a previous work (‘Creative 3-D Display and Interaction Interfaces’) but may be read as a stand-alone book. A trans-disciplinary approach is adopted thereby making the content accessible to wide-ranging audiences from both the sciences and humanities. Additionally, the book is highly relevant to computer users who would like to learn more about new approaches to computer interaction, to those wishing to develop new forms of creative digital media and to those within industry who are involved in the advancement of computers and computer related products.

2 Goldstine, Herman H. The Computer from Pascal to Von Neumann
Princeton, NJ Princeton University Press 1973 0691081042 / 9780691081045 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Price clipped dust jacket worn and scuffed with tears and creasing, small scorch mark front panel of DJ. Light wear to book to black cloth covered boards, light bumping to corners. ; A tight solid book. DJ in Mylar ; 9.70 X 6.30 X 1.20 inches; 390 pages; In 1942, Lt. Herman H. Goldstine, a former mathematics professor, was stationed at the Moore School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. "It was there that he assisted in the creation of the ENIAC, the first electronic digital computer. The ENIAC was operational in 1945, but plans for a new computer were already underway. The principal source of ideas for the new computer was John von Neumann, who became Goldstine's chief collaborator. Together they developed EDVAC, successor to ENIAC. After World War II, at the Institute for Advanced Study, they built what was to become the prototype of the present-day computer. Herman Goldstine writes as both historian and scientist in this first examination of the development of computing machinery, from the seventeenth century through the early 1950s. His personal involvement lends a special authenticity to his narrative, as he sprinkles anecdotes and stories liberally through his text"

The Quantum Dot  A Journey into the Future of Microelectronics, Turton, Richard
4 Turton, Richard The Quantum Dot A Journey into the Future of Microelectronics
New York Oxford University Press 1996 0195109597 / 9780195109597 First Paperback Edition Softcover Near Fine 
Card covers show very light shelf wear.; A bright, solid book card covers are clean and crisp, text unmarked.; 9.15 X 6.12 X 0.66 inches; 211 pages; "Since first developed in the early sixties, silicon chip technology has made vast leaps forward. From a rudimentary circuit with a mere handful of transistors, the chip has evolved into a technological miracle, packing millions of bits of information on a surface no larger than a human thumbnail. And most experts predict that in the near future, we will see chips with over a billion bits. At the same time, this revolution in microelectronics has sparked a dramatic change in the way we live. An integral part of the computer industry, the microchip is found in everything from lasers, fax machines, and satellites to greeting cards and children's toys. And yet few people have any idea how chips work, or how so much information can be captured in such a miniscule space. Now, in The Quantum Dot, physicist Richard Turt on provides a clear, informative look at the science that lies behind the modern revolution in microelectronics and offers an intriguing glimpse of the possible future of this rapidly evolving field. Turt on illuminates the development of the microchip, in a discussion that ranges from a primer on atoms and electrons, to the properties of semiconductors (most notably, silicon), to the structure of the transistor. We learn how researchers have managed to pack the tiny silicon chip with more and more bits, and we get a state-of-the-art look at the microelectronic industry today, from the newest chip materials (such as gallium arsenide, a much faster material than silicon, used in the recently released Cray 3 supercomputer) to the exotic world of high-temperature superconductors. Perhaps most interesting, Turt on offers a provocative glimpse of the future of microelectronics. Here readers enter the strange realm where quantum theory prevails and where physical events contradict our intuitive perceptions."
