The Log Cabin Book: A Complete Builder's Guide to Small Homes and Shelters
This vintage guide from over a century ago offers timeless, practical advice on building log cabins. Plans and directions for simple structures are easy enough for amateurs to follow; time and inclination are the only necessary elements. Each of the designs has been tested and allows numberless alterations to suit the builder's tastes and...   Making Your Own TelescopeComplete, detailed instructions and numerous diagrams for constructing a doityourself telescope. No complicated mathematics are involved, and no prior knowledge of optics or astronomy is needed to follow the text's stepbystep directions.

XRay Diffraction: In Crystals, Imperfect Crystals, and Amorphous BodiesSuperb study begins with fundamentals of xray diffraction theory using Fourier transforms, then applies general results to various atomic structures, amorphous bodies, crystals and imperfect crystals. Elementary laws of xray diffraction on crystals follow as special case. Highly useful for solidstate physicists, metallographers, chemists, and...   Theory of Relativity
THIRTYFIVE years ago this article on the theory of relativity, written by me at the rather young age of 21 years for the Mathematical Encyclopedia, was first published as a separate monograph together with a preface by Sommerfeld, who as the editor of this volume of the Encyclopedia was responsible for my authorship. It was the aim of the...

Journey into Mathematics: An Introduction to Proofs (Dover Books on Mathematics)Instructors have observed, when teaching junior level courses in abstract algebra, number theory, or real variables, that many students have difficulty out of proportion to the level of difficulty of the material. In an abstract algebra course introducing groups and rings, students' struggles are not affected by the changing of texts, instructors,...
