This classic reference presents the history of interior design from prehistory to the present. Exploring a broad range of design styles and movements, this revised and expanded edition includes coverage of non-Western design and vernacular interior architecture and features 665 photographs and drawings (color and black-and-white). The companion CD includes an interactive presentation of periods and styles, incorporating more than 100 illustrations. A History of Interior Design is an essential resource for practicing and aspiring professionals in interior design, art history, and architecture, and general readers interested in design and the decorative arts.
With AutoCAD 2011, Autodesk enhanced the user interface and improved many drawing functions including annotative dimensions and text. Neither simplistic nor exhaustive, this revised edition of Digital Drawing for Designers teaches the latest version of AutoCAD by relating to what architects and interior designers understand best: the visual world. Beginning with the building blocks of drawing (lines, circles, and arcs), the book progresses through architectural graphic standards allowing students to create drawings and effectively communicate their design ideas. Advanced features - such as annotative dimensions, annotative blocks, express tools, and linking drawings (XREFs) - are also covered. Instructions are illustrated using language and concepts from manual drafting, creating a smooth transition to the digital environment for all designers. New learners will appreciate the step-by-step lessons and visual illustrations. Experienced design professionals can easily access material to refresh their knowledge. Clear, concise, and above all visual, this is the AutoCAD guide written for interior designers and architects. Features: - Updated for AutoCAD 2011: compatible with AutoCAD versions 14 through 2011 - Illustrations depicting tools, functions, the AutoCAD ribbon interface, and keyboard commands - Practice exercises to reinforce each chapter's topics - Clear explanation of drawing and printing with line weight - Quick reference aids: command reference guide, index, and large-type page headers - Companion website features downloads for each chapter, including exercises, plot styles, title blocks, drawing templates, and professional AutoCAD drawings Instructor's Resources: - Instructor's Guide includes course syllabi and chapter outlines, tips for teachers, and problems and assignments to suit the skill levels of both interior design students and new interior designers

This text deals with the most fundamental deficiency of modern theory control: the lack of an easily applicable method for the design of low order controllers. It shows that solutions to many different problems in control all reduce to the same linear algebra problem. It employs matrix equalities and matrix inequalities in the solutions of fixed order control and also provides computational algorithms.
