Technology

The range of technology topics covered in our collection reflects the broad nature of the discipline itself, and we are proud to present some of the most state of the art research in this important, cross-disciplinary field. Our books about technology have a particular strength in engineering and software development, but the list also encompasses titles with a broad social science focus, including the history of technology. Cambridge Scholars' technology books will be of interest to researchers in many disciplines alongside specialist engineers, programmers and computer scientists.

Computer Simulations and t...

Computer simulations have become a central tool for scientific practice. Their use has replaced, in many cases, standard experimental procedures. This goes without mentioning cases where the target system is empirical but there are no techniques for direct manipulation of the system, such as astronomical observation. To these cases...
