Advanced Vector Analysis for Scientists and Engineers
by Matiur Rahman, WIT Press, 2007, 320 pages
Known as one of the most useful branches of mathematics, vector analysis is used in practical problems arising in engineering and the applied sciences. This book will be very useful for senior undergraduate and graduate students in science and engineering, as well as scientists and engineers working in practical fields. Based on notes gathered through the author's many years of teaching vector calculus, this book illustrates the application of vector calculus to physical problems. It explains the theory of vector calculus and provides several solved problems to manifest the application of the theory. There are eight chapters, starting with introducing the algebra of vectors. The second chapter contains information on particle motion on a curve, its velocity and acceleration, as well as discussions on tangential and normal components of acceleration of a particle moving in space. Chapter three defines partial derivatives of a scalar function for several independent variables. Each chapter ends with a considerable number of practical exercises.

Preparing for Design-Build Projects
by Douglas D. Gransberg, James A. Koch, Keith R. Molenaar, American Society of Civil Engineers, 2006, 296 pages
For nearly two decades, the design-build contracting process has increasingly become the method of choice in public and private construction projects. Designers and builders must now alter their business practices to accommodate the changed relationships within D-B contracts. This book acts as a professional reference by covering the basics of developing a D-B project.

Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Retail Buildings
by American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, the U.S. Green Building Council, the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America and the American Institute of Architects, ASHRAE, 2006, 108 pages
The second in the energy design-guide series, this book provides recommendations on a simple approach for contractors and designers that create small retail buildings up to 20,000 sq ft with 30% energy savings when compared to those same retail buildings designed to the minimum requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999. The first guide focused on small office buildings.
