Essential for all brass players!
Duets for All
Duets for All enables any two instruments to play duets. Not only may two like-instruments such as two flutes play together, but two dissimilar instruments such as violin and tuba may perform all of the duets. The duets cover a wide range of styles and music from baroque through contemporary eras, and they range in difficulty from grades 1 through 4. Titles: * March (Prokofiev) * Allegro (Mozart) * Dance (Kabalevsky) * Andante and Allegro (Stoutamire) * Leaping (Kabalevsky) * Ecossaise (Beethoven) * A Farewell (Purcell) * Song of the North (Grieg) * March of the Tin Soldiers (Tschaikowsky) * Allegretto (Corelli) * The Mechanical Doll (Shostakovich) * The Adventures of Ivan (Khatchaturian) * Bouree (Handel) * Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 (Liszt) * Ballet of the Chicks (Moussorgsky)
Ultimate Movie Instrumental Solos
Alfred's Ultimate Movie Instrumental Solos series arranged for flute, clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax, trumpet, horn in F, trombone, violin, viola, cello, and optional piano accompaniment. All wind instrument arrangements are fully compatible, and can be successfully performed as ensembles or solos by students who have completed the first book of any standard band method. A fully orchestrated accompaniment MP3 CD is provided, featuring each song as a live performance demo track followed by a play-along track. The CD also contains a PDF of the Piano Accompaniment and Alfred's Tempo Changer Software. Contains 60 songs, including: Cantina Band * Follow the Yellow Brick Road / We're Off to See the Wizard * Gollum's Song * Hedwig's Theme * James Bond Theme * Obliviate * Pink Panther Theme * Raiders March * Superman Theme * Wonka's Welcome Song * and many more. Due to level considerations regarding keys and instrument ranges, the wind instrument arrangements are not compatible with the string instrument arrangements in this series.
From Newspeak to Cyberspeak
An archive-based history of Soviet cybernetics that focuses on the interplay of scientific, economic, and political discourses in the Soviet Union and Russia from the late 1940s through the 1990s.
The Practical Tutor
An invaluable resource for teachers, teaching assistants, peer tutors and parents, The Practical Tutor provides a comprehensive guide to improving composition. It explores typical writing problems and their causes, summarizes recent research and thinking in the field of composition, and suggests practical strategies for helping writers overcome their difficulties. Equally useful as a course text and as a reference book for teachers and tutors, it includes exercises for getting acquainted with writers and helping them to generate ideas, shape essays, master basic writing mechanics, write about literature and other texts, and even use computers to improve their work. It also offers suggestions for journal entries, independent writing, class activities, and further reading. Illustrated with representative compositions and sample dialogues between tutors and writers, The Practical Tutor shows, in the most precise terms, how to formulate questions that will spur students at all levels to make their own corrections and to write critically and independently.
Tears of the Cheetah
A collection of genetic detective stories follows the lesser-known histories of such exotic species as the giant panda, humpback whale, and cheetah, noting how breakthroughs in animal science have enabled promising advances in gene therapy.
EMI EMC Computational Modeling Handbook
The application of computational electromagnetics to real-world EMI/EMC engineering is an emerging technology. With the advancement in electronics, EMI/EMC issues have greatly increased in complexity. As a result, it is no longer possible to rely exclusively on traditional techniques and expect cost-effective solutions. The first edition of this book introduced computational electromagnetics to EMI/EMC engineering. This second edition continues the introduction of computational electromagnetics to EMI/EMC engineering, but also adds new modeling techniques, namely the Partial Element Equivalent Circuit method and the Transmission Line Matrix method, and updates to the science of EMI/EMC modeling that have occurred since the first edition was published. This book combines the essential elements of electromagnetic theory, computational techniques, and EMI/EMC engineering as they apply to computational modeling for EMI/EMC applications. It is intended to provide an understanding for those interested in incorporating modeling techniques in their work. A variety of modeling techniques are needed for anyone interested in using computational modeling in the real world. This book includes an introduction of all the popular modeling techniques, such as the Finite-Difference Time-Domain method, the Method of Moments, the Finite Element Method, the Partial Element Equivalent Circuit method and the Transmission Line Matrix method. EMI/EMC Computational Modeling Handbook, Second Edition will serve many different levels of readers. It will serve as a basic introduction to modeling as applied to EMI/EMC problems for the engineer interested in getting started, and it will help the person already using modeling as a tool to become more effective in using different modeling techniques. It will also be useful for the engineer who is familiar with computational techniques and wishes to apply them to EMI/EMC applications. This book can also be used as a text to help students of electromagnetic theory and application better understand real-world challenges facing engineers.
