Collections of brief e-books synthesizing important research or development topics. The 50- to 100-page e-books or "lectures" offer unique value to the reader by providing more synthesis, analysis, and depth than typical research journal articles. They are ideal entry points to new areas for researchers, advanced developers, and students.
