Applications of the theory relevant to the fields of electronics, telecommunications and power systems are treated throughout. These sections will prepare students for more advanced courses. The text is written for first and second year undergraduate courses in electronics for science and engineering students. The more specialised sections also provide some advanced material which is covered in third year courses.
Strohl examines the evolving network of high speed railway passenger trains in Western Europe. The purpose of the study, in addition to placing high speed train networks in a geographic and economic context, is to introduce the American reader to the evolving system of passenger trains in Europe toward evaluating their feasibility for high-density areas of the U.S. and Canada. Beginning with some general concepts of railway economics, planning, construction, and operation, the author goes on to detail high speed rail networks in France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, and Spain, with additional information on Japan and Scandinavia. This unique work will be of interest to all scholars and professionals in transportation economics and railway systems.
