This book provides the theory and some examples of rule based reasoning applied to computer design. The presentation begins with design methods. These include both structured, object oriented design applied to software and systems engineering using several examples. Rule based reasoning, fuzzy logic, and new methods of virtual prototyping of computer designs are also covered. Virtual prototyping, in contrast to hardware prototyping, offers the promise of much lower design cost and more time to prepare prototypes. A discussion on this topic concludes with a sample implementation of these methods that can be used for computer system design.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
