The photos in this edition are black and white. Skylarks, GSXs, Grand Nationals, Rivieras, Gran Sports; the list of formidable performance Buicks is impressive. From the torque monsters of the 1960s to the high-flying Turbo models of the '80s, Buicks have a unique place in performance history. During the 1960s, when word of the mountains of torque supplied by the big-inch Buicks hit the street, nobody wanted to mess with them. Later, big-inch Buicks and the Hemi Chryslers went at it hammer and tongs in stock drag shootouts and in the pages of the popular musclecar magazines of the day. The wars between the Turbo Buicks and Mustang GTs in the 1980s were also legendary, as both cars responded so well to modifications. "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines" is the first performance engine book ever published on the Buick family of engines. This book covers everything from the Nailheads of the '50s and early '60s, to the later evolutions of the Buick V-8 through the '60s and '70s, through to the turbo V-6 models of the '70s and '80s. Veteran magazine writer and Buick owner Jefferson Bryant supplies the most up-to-date information on heads, blocks, cams, rotating assemblies, interchangeability, and oiling-system improvements and modifications, along with details on the best performance options available, avenues for aftermarket support, and so much more. Finally, the Buick camp gets the information they have been waiting for, and it's all right here in "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines."

Over the last 40 years, millions of Chrysler, AMC, and Jeep vehicles have used these differentials, propelling these high-performance vehicles to victory on the street, in drag racing, and other applications. Chrysler used the Dana 60 and BorgWarner Sure-Grip high-performance differentials in the Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, Super Bee and many other renowned Chrysler muscle cars. These differentials have been tied to historic powerhouse engines, such as the Chrysler Magnum and Hemi V8s in stock car, drag racing, and other forms of racing, making history in the process. Jeep CJs and Cherokees have used the Dana 44 and AMC 20 and put these differentials under tremendous loads, which often requires frequent rebuilds. After years of use, these differentials require rebuilding, and of course aftermarket suppliers offer ring and pinion and other parts to upgrade these axles. In this Workbench series title, the focus is on the disassembly, inspection and step-by-step rebuild of the most popular high-performance differentials. Axles and differentials are not incredibly complex components, but there are some specific steps to follow for rebuilding, upgrading, and setting them up properly, and this book demystifies the process and explains it in detail. A book dedicated to the Dana, Sure-Grip, and AMC Jeep axles has never been published before, and Mopar, Jeep and AMC enthusiasts are hungry for this information. The Dana and AMC axles should remain in wide use into the foreseeable future, and therefore there will be a consistent demand for this information. This book will also feature extensive gear and application charts, so the reader is sure to select the correct gear ratio for a particular vehicle and application. Special coverage is therefore dedicated to ring and pinion gears. In addition selecting the best aftermarket and production axle shafts is covered as well as modifying and upgrading the differential housings.

Dieses Lehrbuch gibt eine praxisnahe Einführung in die Informatik. Zunächst werden die Grundlagen der Kodierung und der Informationsdarstellung abgehandelt und Kontroll- und Datenstrukturen vorgestellt. Anschließend werden Architekturmerkmale von Prozessoren (RISC und CISC) sowie Mechanismen der Systemsteuerung wie Pipelining und Interrupts erläutert. Es folgt eine Beschreibung der wichtigsten Funktionen eines Betriebssystems wie die Organisation von Prozessen und die Speicherverwaltung. Die Darstellung erfolgt mittels des Modellprozessors MMIX, der von Donald E. Knuth in seinem Standardwerk "The Art of Computer Programming" entwickelt wurde. Die Funktionsweise dieses Prozessors wird in einem eigenen Kapitel ausführlich beschrieben. Ferner werden die Programmierumgebung des MMIX und seine Assemblersprache MMIXAL in ergänzenden Anhängen zusammengestellt.

Über zwanzig Jahre Recherche, unter anderem in den sehr frühen Archiven von Volkswagen und Porsche, eine Vielzahl von bislang unveröffentlichten Fotos und Entwicklungsplänen sowie die Kompetenz eines der renommiertesten internationalen Motor-Journalisten und ausgewiesenen Käfer-Kenners verdichten sich in "Der Käfer" zu einer faszinierenden Auto-Biografie. Zahlreiche Bücher haben bislang den Werdegang des Käfers beleuchtet, doch alle streifen nur sehr vage seine Entwicklungsgeschichte. Autor Chris Barber konzentriert sich hingegen exakt auf diese Epoche des Kultautos aus Wolfsburg. Er geht noch einmal siebzig Jahre zurück und begleitet den genialen Autoentwickler Ferdinand Porsche und seine Mannschaft auf ihrer Mission, ein Fahrzeug zu bauen, das den Automobil-Markt revolutionieren sollte. Der Volkswagen sollte einfach zu bedienen sein, er sollte einer fünfköpfigen Familie ausreichend Platz bieten, er sollte robust sowie in Großserie zu produzieren sein und: Er sollte extrem preiswert sein. Ferdinand Porsche gelang dieses Kunststück in einem politisch diffusen und gefährlichen Umfeld. Chris Barbers souveränem Blick ist es zu verdanken, dass aus der Beschreibung des technischen Bravourstückes keine blinde Laudatio auf den Führerstaat Deutschland wird. Vielmehr schafft er es, die einzigartige Entwicklungsgeschichte des Käfers ohne Pathos in die herrschenden Zeitläufte einzuordnen. Übersetzt wurde dieses künftige Standardwerk über die Geburt des Volkswagens von Deutschlands wohl kompetentesten Käfer-Experten: Dr. Bernd Wiersch, der schon seine Promotion über den Käfer verfasste, leitete über viele Jahrzehnte das Wolfsburger "Volkswagen Museum"
