E: The Story of a NumberMaor attempts to give the irrational number e its rightful standing alongside pi as a fundamental constant in science and nature; he succeeds very well.... Maor writes so that both mathematical newcomers and longtime professionals alike can thoroughly enjoy his book, learn something new, and witness the ubiquity of mathematical ideas in...   From a Philosophical Point of View: Selected StudiesOne of the most important philosophers of recent times, Morton White has spent a career building bridges among the increasingly fragmented worlds of the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. From a Philosophical Point of View is a selection of White's best essays, written over a period of more than sixty years. Together these...   

Feedback Systems: An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers
This book provides an introduction to the mathematics needed to model, analyze, and design feedback systems. It is an ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students, and is indispensable for researchers seeking a selfcontained reference on control theory. Unlike most books on the subject, Feedback Systems develops transfer...   How To Be a Graphic Designer Without Losing Your SoulDesigners are quick to tell us about their sources of inspiration, but they are much less willing to reveal such critical matters as how to find work, how much they charge, and what to do when a client rejects three weeks of work and refuses to pay the bill. How to be a graphic designer without losing your soul addresses the concerns of...   Information ScienceFrom cell phones to Web portals, advances in information and communications technology have thrust society into an information age that is farreaching, fastmoving, increasingly complex, and yet essential to modern life. Now, renowned scholar and author David Luenberger has produced Information Science, a text that distills and explains... 

  Modeling with Data: Tools and Techniques for Scientific ComputingI am a psychiatric geneticist but my degree is in neuroscience, which means that I now do far more statistics than I have been trained for. I cannot overstate to you the magnitude of the change in my productivity since finding this book. Even after reading the first few chapters, which explain why data analysis is painful and how one can implement...   SymmetrySTARTING from the somewhat vague notion of symmetry = harmony of proportions, these four lectures gradually develop first the geometric concept of symmetry in its several forms, as bilateral, translatory, rotational, ornamental and crystallographic symmetry, etc., and finally rise to the general idea underlying all these special forms, namely that... 

Psychological Types (Collected Works of C.G. Jung Vol.6)One of the most important of Jung's longer works, and probably the most famous of his books, Psychological Types appeared in German in 1921 after a "fallow period" of eight years during which Jung had published little. He called it "the fruit of nearly twenty years' work in the domain of practical psychology," and in...   The Calculus Gallery: Masterpieces from Newton to LebesgueMore than three centuries after its creation, calculus remains a dazzling intellectual achievement and the gateway into higher mathematics. This book charts its growth and development by sampling from the work of some of its foremost practitioners, beginning with Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in the late seventeenth century and...   Photonic Crystals: Molding the Flow of Light (Second Edition)Since it was first published in 1995, Photonic Crystals has remained the definitive text for both undergraduates and researchers on photonic bandgap materials and their use in controlling the propagation of light. This newly expanded and revised edition covers the latest developments in the field, providing the most uptodate, concise,...
