IEEE Standard Dictionary of Electrical and Electronics Terms.
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc., New York, NY.
This dictionary, prepared by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE), defines 13,000 technical words from every area of electrical and electronics engineering. The dictionary contains hundreds of new terms as well as revisions of earlier ones. Each definition is an official standard of IEEE. The definitions are arranged alphabetically and are supplemented by such helpful information as preferred usage, variations in meaning among specialities, cross-indexing in related words, and code numbers which identify the source of the definition and the field in which it originated. In addition, many definitions contain explanatory notes which pinpoint specific problems or applications. American usage is stressed, although recommendations of the International Electrotechnical Commission have been adopted in many cases. (Author/TS)
