A description of the product from Morgan & Claypool’s promotional materials:
“Synthesis is a revolutionary collection of e-books: dynamic presentations of key R&D topics written by leading … scientists and engineers. The titles range in scope from core undergraduate course areas to the state of the art in research from academic, corporate, and government labs. Most are less than 100 pages and provide students and faculty complete yet succinct coverage of advanced topics in rapidly changing fields.”
Subject areas currently emphasize computer science and electrical engineering, but mechatronics, biomedical and general engineering topics are also available. Environmental engineering topics are slated for future production.
