Gamma: Exploring Euler's ConstantAmong the myriad of constants that appear in mathematics, p, e, and i are the most familiar. Following closely behind is g, or gamma, a constant that arises in many mathematical areas yet maintains a profound sense of mystery.
In a tantalizing blend of history and mathematics, Julian Havil takes the reader on a journey through...   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...
