How Fighter Pilots Use Math (Math in the Real World)

The jet engine roars as Colonel Maria Sanchez races the F-35 down the runway. The plane leaps into the air. At 1,000 feet, she banks and circles the Air Force base to give three other fighter planes time to take off and join her.

Sanchez heads north. The three other planes fall into formation around her. Together, the planes make a...

How Do Hybrid Cars Work? (Science in the Real World)
How Do Hybrid Cars Work? (Science in the Real World)

In recent years, there has been much concern about the world's reliance on nonrenewable resources, such as oil. Scientists are attempting to decrease our dependency on oil - something cars require to work.

Special Functions
Special Functions

I have attempted to 'write this book in such a way that it can be read not only by professional mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and chemists, but also by \yell-trained graduate students in those and closely allied fields. Even the research worker in special functions may notice, however, some results or techniques with which he is...

ESP, Psychokinesis, and Psychics
ESP, Psychokinesis, and Psychics

Many people have experienced psi, whether as a sense of having been in a place before (deja vu), hearing a voice in their head that gave them guidance, or following their intuition. For some, these events can be attributed to coincidence, but for psychics, such episodes occur more frequently and intensely, often manifesting in dreams,...
