Explore the content of the book by dragging (click and hold left mouse button and move) the zoomed pages right and left or up and down. ESC key escapes you from the zoomed view.

Hovering a mouse on the right or left sides or near the middle of the book, will allow you to use arrow appeared (on the fly) to flip the pages. You may also enjoy reading by simply using the left and right arrow keys from your keyboard.

Preface of e-Edition

The publishers of this book have closed their business, so this book is now out of print and it is not available to the readers. With the kind help of my co-author, Dr H S Rai this book is being given a re-birth on the Internet, with a hope that the Engineering Community will enjoy the book and derive benefit out of it as before.
