This book is a collection of correspondences and articles describing the issues with the Principles of Zero Aerodynamic drag. The principles are used to file a patent with the title of Zero Aerodynamic Drag Vehicles. Based on comments by reviewers and patent examiners, these principles are not really easy to understand, let alone exploit. These principles are self-published as eBook instead.
This book is presents yet unpublished developments in Intelligence Theory that will make Computer Engineering really an engineering profession. Gone will be the days of thumb rules in designing computing machines. The Intelligence Theory will be demonstrated for other fields such as education and general problem solving.
This book is a collection of two papers that had been published and another that even Arxiv dare not publish. The message is that the interpretation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics by textbooks had been faulty because of the wrong assumption that our environment is mostly lossy. This is not true because outer space is much more vast and filled with vacuum at zero Kelvin temperature.
This book is a collection of laboratory worksheets, assignments, circuits and source-codes with instructor's comments in strategic places. They are based on a Computer Architecture course at the Universiti Malaysia Sabah. They are most useful to lecturers who want to introduce practical CPU design elements in their Computer Architecture courses but will also be useful to students and hobbyists
