Model-Based Systems Engineering explains the fundamental theories behind model-based systems and the considerations involved in applying theory to the design of real systems. The book begins by presenting terms used in systems engineering and introducing the discrete system and its components. The remainder of the text explains topics such as the mathematical theory of system coupling, the homomorphic relationship between systems, the concept of system mode, the mathematical structure of T3SD system requirements, and the implications of that structure for T3SD system design. Appendices include a short bibliography, detailed definitions of all examples discussed in the text, a list of all notations used, and an index.
Following a suspension after closing the Mercury Man case, Detective-Sergeant Natalie Dvorak is back on the job with the Vermont State Police at full rank. Her latest case has Dvorak on the trail of brutal killers whose crime complicates Dvorak's own personal life, threatening someone she holds dear. A demo tape of songs containing racist lyrics proves to be a vital clue to the murderers' identity, suggesting they will fight to the death rather than surrender. To catch the Singing Shooters, Sergeant Dvorak seeks help from a hostile teenage girl and an old flame she once put in prison.
