Ma sélection

Ici sont rassemblés les ouvrages qui m'ont permis de mieux comprendre le fonctionnement des TSF. On y trouve des ouvrages théoriques et techniques datant de l'époque des tubes, mais aussi des ouvrages d'électronique, de physique ou de mathématiques plus récents qui permettent la conception d'équipements de test ou l'élaboration de programmes de calcul dont le premier usage ne relève pas de la TSF.
