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.

Simulating Visitor Behavio...

The dynamics of the interplay between the visitor and the exhibition environment form complex circulation patterns. As an exhibition designer, developing an understanding of those dynamics is important for improving visitor satisfaction. However, an overwhelming number of variables may transform the exhibition design process into e...
