  1. Innovation and Industrialization in Asia

    Edited by Rajah Rasiah, Yeo Lin, Yuri Sadoi

    Existing accounts of East Asia’s meteoric growth and structural change has either been explained as one dictated essentially by markets with strong macroeconomic fundamentals, or a consequence of proactive governments. This book departs from such a dichotomy by examining inductively the drivers of...

  2. Generation of Surfaces

    Kinematic Geometry of Surface Machining

    By Stephen P. Radzevich

    A commonly used practice in industry is the machining of sculptured part surfaces on a multiaxis numerical control (NC) machine. While this practice is vital, it is also a costly aspect of the surface generation process. After investing more than 40 years of research into the theory of part surface...
