KEY MESSAGE: Presented in a clear and concise style, the Akst/Bragg series teaches by example while expanding understanding with applications that are fully integrated throughout the text and exercise sets. Akst/Bragg's user-friendly design offers a distinctive side-by-side format that pairs each example and its solution with a corresponding practice exercise. The concise writing style keeps readers' interest and attention by presenting the mathematics with minimal distractions, and the motivating real-world applications demonstrate how integral mathematical understanding is to a variety of disciplines, careers, and everyday situations.

The RF front-end is the most fundamental building block of any wireless system. Nanometer CMOS RFICs for Mobile TV Applications brings together what IC design engineers need to know for the development of low-cost, wide-dynamic range RF front-ends for today's fastest growing communication markets. Drawing on their experience from both industry and academia, the authors use the emerging DVB-H mobile TV standard to provide readers with the step-by-step design progression of the described nanometer CMOS RFICs.
This work presents applications of numerical semigroups in Algebraic Geometry, Number Theory, and Coding Theory. Background on numerical semigroups is presented in the first two chapters, which introduce basic notation and fundamental concepts and irreducible numerical semigroups. The focus is in particular on free semigroups, which are irreducible; semigroups associated with planar curves are of this kind. The authors also introduce semigroups associated with irreducible meromorphic series, and show how these are used in order to present the properties of planar curves. Invariants of non-unique factorizations for numerical semigroups are also studied. These invariants are computationally accessible in this setting, and thus this monograph can be used as an introduction to Factorization Theory. Since factorizations and divisibility are strongly connected, the authors show some applications to AG Codes in the final section. The book will be of value for undergraduate students (especially those at a higher level) and also for researchers wishing to focus on the state of art in numerical semigroups research.
