If wo try to identify those contributions of computer science which will be
long lasting, surely one of these will be the refinement of the concept called
algorithm. Ever since man invented the idea of a machine which could per
form basic mathematical operations, the study of what can be computed and
how it can be done well was...
Linear Algebra: A Geometric Approach
One of the most enticing aspects of mathematics, we have found, is the interplay of
ideas from seemingly disparate disciplines of the subject. Linear algebra provides
a beautiful illustration of this, in that it is by nature both algebraic and geometric.
Euclidean & Non-Euclidean Geometries: Development and History
This is the definitive presentation of the history, development and philosophical significance of non-Euclidean geometry as well as of the rigorous foundations for it and for elementary Euclidean geometry, essentially according to Hilbert. Appropriate for liberal arts students, prospective high school teachers, math. majors, and even bright high...
Molecular Cell Biology Like ourselves, the individual cells that form our bodies can grow, reproduce, process information, respond to stimuli, and carry out an amazing array of chemical reactions. These abilities define life. We and other multicellular organisms contain billions or trillions of cells organized into complex structures, but many organisms consist of a... Gravitation (Physics Series) This is a textbook on gravitation physics (Einstein's "general relativity" or "geometrodynamics"). It supplies two tracks through the subject. The first track is focused on the key physical ideas. It assumes, as mathematical prerequisite, only vector analysis and simple partial-differential equations. It is suitable for a... Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry, Fourth Edition The fourth edition of Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry stays true to the vision of its predecessors while embracing the advances made in biochemical research since the previous edition. As always, the book presents the fundamentals of biochemistry through selected topics, and emphasizes the most important recent developments and applications...
The Fractal Geometry of Nature Imagine an equilateral triangle. Now, imagine smaller equilateral triangles perched in the center of each side of the original triangle--you have a Star of David. Now, place still smaller equilateral triangles in the center of each of the star's 12 sides. Repeat this process infinitely and you have a Koch snowflake, a mind-bending geometric...
