Digital books have many advantages such as the ease of carrying when stored on a tablet, the fast searching capabilities and the quick and simple way updating content.

The Digital Edition has been released in pdf format and consists of more than 700 pages, optimized for reading in portrait mode on an iPad, or similar tablets. The pdf version can be ordered via the link below to the order form.

The book is also available from, and from the Apple iTunes store.

It is intended to further update the book in the next years. For suggestions on improvements, or enhancements, please contact me at

At the Download Page, under Publications, pdf files of my lectures, conference presentations and a basic railway course in Dutch can be found.
