I would like to express my appreciation to all of my students in the Power and Process Engineering program between the academic years 2011-12 and 2015-16 for their feedback and understanding that this book is a work in-progress.
Special thanks go to those who supported the book along the way:
- Dr. David Porter1, the founder of BCIT OER Group in 2015 who constantly provides me with the latent energy to continue working on this book,
- Mr. Alex Podut with whom I co-taught MATLAB in 2015. His input was very valuable,
- Dr. Sanja Boskovic who promoted this book at management levels in 2012,
- Mr. Sergiy Yatlo who gave feedback to the first iterations of the book in early 2011.
