    Conversions of energy in general are considered first, with emphasis on schemes appropriate for energy conversion devices. For the purposes of this paper, the vast numbers of conversion possibilities are restricted to solid-state devices. The direct coupling between heat and electricity is singled out for more detailed discussion of a useful figure of merit. The present state of the thermoelectric... View full abstract»

    Known learning principles cannot be efficiently applied in the traditional classroom environment. To achieve efficient learning it is necessary to remold the teaching-learning configuration to one in which the state of the art can be applied. Teaching machines provide such a configuration, and have proved to be dramatically effective in teaching a wide variety of subject matters. There is a need f... View full abstract»

    The basic operating principles of three low-temperature devices the maser, the cryotron, and the cryosar are discussed. In masers the process of stimulated emission of radiation is used to produce an extremely low noise amplifier, with all practical solid state masers thus far employing the electron spins in paramagnetic salts. The cryotron and the cryosar are both primarily intended for computer ... View full abstract»

    The rapid advance of science and technology in today's world threatens to heighten, rather than minimize, the coming crisis in education. This paper advocates that the technological advances now possible must include advances also in the methods of education. Those now engaged in modern engineering and science must apply their ingenuity and resources to major creative efforts in the art of teachin... View full abstract»

    The z transform of simple delay, integrator, leadlag, and differentiator networks are suggested as the basic building blocks for simulating complex control systems on a digital computer. The system parameters retain their explicit identity, thus facilitating analysis and design of the system as a function of specific parameter changes. View full abstract»

    I have attempted to call attention to what is perhaps the weakest link in system theory, namely, the process of making measurements which yield the numbers that serve as the inputs to the mathematical theory. I have called attention to Dirac's notation because quantum mechanics, in which this notation was first used, is very much concerned with the measurement process and the notions of linear ope...

    General system theory or, more simply, system theory is essentially a body of abstract concepts and mathematical techniques which can be applied to analysis and design of a wide variety of physical systems. This paper presents a brief exposition of some of the basic concepts of system theory and sketches its principal problems and techniques. The discussion centers on the notion of state and state...

    The authors analyze the answers to 10 questions from 523 engineering students in three Michigan junior colleges, in an attempt to elicit the beginning student's view of engineering. The answers give information on the age of first interest in engineering, the age of decision on the field as a career, the influences that led to the choice of engineering, future aspirations, and six other related qu...
