Wikipedia wrote:The CRC Press, LLC is a publishing group which specializes in producing technical books in a wide range of subjects. While many of their books relate to engineering, science and mathematics, their scope also includes books on business and information technology. CRC Press is now a subsidiary of the Taylor and Francis Group.

The CRC Press was originally founded as the Chemical Rubber Company (CRC), which supplied laboratory equipment to chemists. In 1913 the CRC offered a short manual called the Rubber Handbook as an incentive to purchase one of their products. Since then the Rubber Handbook has evolved into the CRC's flagship book, the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. In 1973, in light of the success of its publishing ventures, the company changed its name to CRC Press, LLC, and exited the manufacturing business.

The CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, widely regarded as an important resource for research scientists, is in its 88th edition (published June 25th 2007). It is sometimes nicknamed the 'Rubber Bible'.

Handbook of Integral Equations
edited by Andrei D. Polyanin and Alexander V. Manzhirov
ISBN 978-0849328763 | Published 3/31/1998 | 796 Pages | TOC, Linked
CRC Press | Amazon
CRC Press wrote:# Considers general integral equations in relation to various fields of mechanics and theoretical physics, including elasticity, plasticity, hydrodynamics, heat and mass transfer, and electrodynamics
# Describes symbolic methods, singular integral equations, and translational integral equations
# Provides supplements on Laplace and Mellin transformations
# Discusses numerous new solutions to the Volterra, Fredholm, and other equations
# Presents approximate methods, classical methods, and recent developments
# Includes examples showing how the methods can be applied to specific equations


Integral equations are encountered in various fields of science and in numerous applications, including elasticity, plasticity, heat and mass transfer, oscillation theory, fluid dynamics, filtration theory, electrostatics, electrodynamics, biomechanics, game theory, control, queuing theory, electrical engineering, economics, and medicine.

Exact (closed-form) solutions of integral equations play an important role in the proper understanding of qualitative features of many phenomena and processes in various areas of natural science. Equations of physics, chemistry, and biology contain functions or parameters obtained from experiments - hence, they are not strictly fixed. Therefore, it is expedient to choose the structure of these functions for more easily analyzing and solving the equation. As a possible selection criterion, one may adopt the requirement that the model integral equation admit a solution in a closed form. Exact solutions can be used to verify the consistency and estimate errors of various numerical, asymptotic, and approximate methods.

The first part of Handbook of Integral Equations:
· Contains more than 2,100 integral equations and their solutions
· Includes many new exact solutions to linear and nonlinear equations
· Addresses equations of general form, which depend on arbitrary functions

Other equations contain one or more free parameters (the book actually deals with families of integral equations); the reader has the option to fix these parameters.

The second part of the book - chapters 7 through 14 - presents exact, approximate analytical, and numerical methods for solving linear and nonlinear integral equations. Apart from the classical methods, the text also describes some new methods. When selecting the material, the authors emphasize practical aspects of the matter, specifically for methods that allow an effective "constructing" of the solution. Each section provides examples of applications to specific equations.

Supplements follow the main material, presenting:
· Properties of elementary and special functions
· Tables of indefinite and definite integrals
· Tables of Laplace, Mellin, and other transforms

To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the authors avoid special terminology, outlining some of the methods in a schematic, simplified manner and offering references to books considering the details of these methods.

Handbook of Integral Equations includes chapters, sections, and subsections - numbering equations and formulas separately in each section, arranging the equations in increasing order of complexity, and providing immediate access to the desired equations through an extensive table of contents.

The Hacker's Handbook: The Strategy Behind Breaking into and Defending Networks
edited by Susan Young and Dave Aitel
ISBN 978-0849308888 | Published 11/24/2003 | 849 Pages | Linked
CRC Press | Amazon
CRC Press wrote:# Focuses on UNIX and Microsoft Windows® NT/2000 platforms
# Constructs a case study that demonstrates a complex network attack from both hacker and administrator perspectives, charting moves and countermoves within a likely security architecture
# Provides a technical foundation for: programming and the methods used to exploit code; protocols and their fundamental vulnerabilities; and databases and their weaknesses and defenses
# Analyzes the tactics and tools used by intruders to consolidate their positions inside a network, giving them consistent, covert access
# Explores forensic investigation, including pre-incident preparation and the protection of audit trails and evidence; investigates the methods that hackers use to evade audit logging controls and intrusion detection mechanisms


The Hacker's Handbook: The Strategy Behind Breaking Into and Defending Networks, moves ahead of the pack of books about digital security by revealing the technical aspects of hacking that are least understood by network administrators. This is accomplished by analyzing subjects through a hacking/security dichotomy that details hacking maneuvers and defenses in the same context. Chapters are organized around specific technical components and administrative tasks, providing theoretical background that prepares network defenders for the always-changing and creative tools and techniques of intruders.

This book is divided into three parts. Part I introduces programming, protocol, and attack concepts. Part II addresses subject areas (protocols, services, technologies, etc.) that may be vulnerable. Part III details consolidation activities that hackers may use following penetration.

Each section provides a "path" to hacking/security Web sites and other resources that augment existing content. Referencing these supplemental and constantly-updated resources ensures that this volume remains timely and enduring. By informing IT professionals how to think like hackers, this book serves as a valuable weapon in the fight to protect digital assets.

Advanced Signal Processing Handbook: Theory and Implementation for Radar, Sonar, and Medical Imaging Real Time Systems

CRC Press | Amazon
CRC Press wrote:# Introduces the principles and applications of advanced signal processing
# Summarizes the state-of-the-art application of advanced processing concepts in sonar, radar, and medical imaging and points out their applicability, benefits, and potential
# Disseminates, where possible, the results of research funded by government and military agencies
# Develops a generic concept for implementing adaptive, synthetic aperture processing schemes
# Illustrates concepts, techniques, and applications with more than 400 figures, photographs, and images
# Bridges a variety of related fields to provide a comprehensive reference for current and emerging applications


Advances in digital signal processing algorithms and computer technology have combined to produce real-time systems with capabilities far beyond those of just few years ago. Nonlinear, adaptive methods for signal processing have emerged to provide better array gain performance, however, they lack the robustness of conventional algorithms. The challenge remains to develop a concept that exploits the advantages of both-a scheme that integrates these methods in practical, real-time systems.

The Advanced Signal Processing Handbook helps you meet that challenge. Beyond offering an outstanding introduction to the principles and applications of advanced signal processing, it develops a generic processing structure that takes advantage of the similarities that exist among radar, sonar, and medical imaging systems and integrates conventional and nonlinear processing schemes.

# Provides standardized test sets to illustrate algorithms


Whether you are a statistician, engineer, or businessperson, you need statistics. You want to be able to easily reference tables, find formulas, and know how to use them so you can extract information from data without getting bogged down by advanced statistical methods. Your goal is to determine the appropriate statistical procedures and interpret the results. Standard Probability and Statistics: Tables and Formulae provides the tools you need to do just that.

Logically organized and reaching far beyond a mere catalog, a textual description accompanies each entry- most include an example. The topics addressed are directly applicable to modern business and engineering as well as to statistics, including regression analysis, ANOVA, decision theory, signal processing, and control theory. The result is an accessible, example-oriented handbook that supplies the basic principles, the most commonly used values, and the information to make them work for you.

It is easy to fill a statistics reference with hundreds of pages of tables - sometimes for just one test. This handbook is much more. With topics ranging from classical statistics to modern applications, Standard Probability and Statistics fills the need for an up-to-date, authoritative statistics reference.
