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...   Codes, Ciphers and Secret Writing (Test Your Code Breaking Skills)Experiment with cryptography — the science of secret writing. Cipher and decipher codes: transposition and polyalphabetical ciphers, famous codes, typewriter and telephone codes, codes that use playing cards, knots, and swizzle sticks...even invisible writing and sending messages through outer space. Hours of intrigue and challenge. 45...   CryptanalysisThorough, systematic introduction to serious cryptography, especially strong in modern forms of cipher solution used by experts. Nihilist, grille, U. S. Army, keyphrase, multiplealphabet, Gronsfeld, Porta, Beaufort, periodic ciphers, and more. Simple and advanced methods. 166 specimens to solve — with solutions.... 

Unbounded Linear Operators: Theory and Applications (Dover Books on Mathematics)In recent years important progress has been made in the study of linear operators by extending to closed operators many fundamental theorems which were known for bounded operators. The applications of the theory permit unification of a series of diverse questions in differential equations, which leads to significant results with substantial...   Mathematics of Classical and Quantum PhysicsThis book is designed as a companion to the graduate level physics texts on classical mechanics, electricity, magnetism, and quantum mechanics. It grows out of a course given at Columbia University and taken by virtually all first year graduate students as a fourth basic course, thereby eliminating the need to cover this mathematical material in a...   An Introduction to Matrices, Sets and Groups for Science StudentsTHIS book is written primarily for undergraduate students of science and engineering, and presents an elementary introduction to some of the major branches of modern algebra  namely, matrices, sets and groups. Of these three topics, matrices are of especial importance at undergraduate level, and consequently more space is devoted to their study... 

The Theory of SpinorsDescribes orthgonal and related Lie groups, using real or complex parameters and indefinite metrics. Develops theory of spinors by giving a purely geometric definition of these mathematical entities. Covers generalities on the group of rotations in ndimensional space, the theory of spinors in spaces of any number of dimensions and much more. ...
