The increased computational power and software tools available to
engineers have increased the use and dependence on modeling and
computer simulation throughout the design process. These tools have
given engineers the capability of designing highly complex systems
and computer architectures that were previously unthinkable. Every
complex design project, from integrated circuits, to aerospace
vehicles, to industrial manufacturing processes requires these new
methods. This book fulfills the essential need of system and
control engineers at all levels in understanding modeling and
simulation. This book, written as a true text/reference has become
a standard sr./graduate level course in all EE departments
worldwide and all professionals in this area are required to update

Studies in Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics, Volume 102: Set Theory: An Introduction to Independence Proofs offers an introduction to relative consistency proofs in axiomatic set theory, including combinatorics, sets, trees, and forcing. The book first tackles the foundations of set theory and infinitary combinatorics. Discussions focus on the Suslin problem, Martin's axiom, almost disjoint and quasi-disjoint sets, trees, extensionality and comprehension, relations, functions, and well-ordering, ordinals, cardinals, and real numbers. The manuscript then ponders on well-founded sets and easy consistency proofs, including relativization, absoluteness, reflection theorems, properties of well-founded sets, and induction and recursion on well-founded relations. The publication examines constructible sets, forcing, and iterated forcing. Topics include Easton forcing, general iterated forcing, Cohen model, forcing with partial functions of larger cardinality, forcing with finite partial functions, and general extensions. The manuscript is a dependable source of information for mathematicians and researchers interested in set theory.
