The fifth edition of Functions Modeling Change: A Preparation for Calculus, 5th Edition helps instructors motivate concepts, and students develop critical thinking skills. Functions Modeling Change, 5th edition, is designed to accomplish the main goals of the Precalculus course: to build a solid mathematical foundation and prepare students for Calculus. The authors achieve this by focusing on a small number of key topics, thereby emphasizing depth of understanding rather than breadth of coverage. Functions Modeling Change, 5th edition, presents each function symbolically, numerically, graphically and verbally (the Rule of Four). Additionally, a large number of real-world applications, examples, and problems enable students to create mathematical models that relate to the world around them.
On May 16th 2007 the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Te- nology of the Technische Universitat .. Munchen .. bestowed the degree of the doctor honoris causa to Wolfgang J. R. Hoefer for Extraordinary achievements in the theory of electromagnetic elds. On this special occasion a symposium on Time Domain Methods in Modern Engineering Electrodynamics has been held in honor of P- fessor Wolfgang J. R. Hoefer at the Technische Universitat .. Munchen .. on May 16 and 17, 2007. The symposium topic was focused on the main area of research of Wolfgang J. R. Hoefer, the time domain methods in computational electromagnetics especially the transmission line matrix method and its applications. The transm- sion line matrix method has been developed and rst published by Johns and Beurle in 1971. In the past 20 years Wolfgang Hoefer has given exemplary contributions to the development of the transmission line method. Space and time discretizing time domain methods have emerged as key nume- cal methods in computational electromagnetics. Time domain methods are versatile and can be applied to the solution of wide range of electromagnetic eld pr- lems. Computing the response of an electromagnetic structure to an impulsive - citation localized in space and time provides a comprehensive characterization of the electromagnetic properties of the structure in a wide frequency range. The most important methods are the nite difference time domain and the transmission line matrix methods.
