The MIT Libraries is pleased to announce access to the latest collection in the Synthesis Digital Library of Engineering and Computer Science. The Synthesis eBooks, or “lectures,” are 50-200-page overviews of cutting-edge topics in electrical engineering, computer science, and related disciplines. They serve as great introductions and reviews: ideal for catching up or starting out in a new area. Several MIT faculty are Synthesis authors. New titles include:
- Image-Based Visualization: Interactive Multidimensional Data Exploration
- Natural Language Processing for Social Media
- Smartphone-Based Real-Time Digital Signal Processing
- A Primer on Compression in the Memory Hierarchy
- Scalability Challenges in Web Search Engines
- Grammatical Inference for Computational Linguistics
- Sustaining Moore’s Law: Uncertainty Leading to a Certainty of IoT Revolution
- A Primer on Physical-Layer Network Coding
- Datacenter Design and Management: A Computer Architect’s Perspective
In addition to technical topics, some titles address the practice of engineering, such as Crafting Your Research Future: A Guide to Successful Master’s and Ph.D. Degrees in Science & Engineering.
Forthcoming titles will address topics such as antennas, quantum computing, and human-centered informatics.
