On the Job -Design and the American Office
On the Job -Design and the American Office

American work spaces have gone through remarkable and extensive changes since 1900, thanks to the forces of technology, real estate, and finance, as well as evolving ideas on office organization and management. Innovations as commonplace as air conditioning and fluorescent lighting have had a profound impact, as have more recent phenomena...

The Calculus Gallery: Masterpieces from Newton to Lebesgue
The Calculus Gallery: Masterpieces from Newton to Lebesgue
More 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...
Digital Dice: Computational Solutions to Practical Probability Problems
Digital Dice: Computational Solutions to Practical Probability Problems

"Paul Nahin's Digital Dice is a marvelous book, one that is even better than his Duelling Idiots. Nahin presents twenty-one great probability problems, from George Gamow's famous elevator paradox (as corrected by Donald Knuth) to a bewildering puzzle involving two rolls of toilet paper, and he solves them all with the aid...

How Mathematicians Think: Using Ambiguity, Contradiction, and Paradox to Create Mathematics
How Mathematicians Think: Using Ambiguity, Contradiction, and Paradox to Create Mathematics
To many outsiders, mathematicians appear to think like computers, grimly grinding away with a strict formal logic and moving methodically--even algorithmically--from one black-and-white deduction to another. Yet mathematicians often describe their most important breakthroughs as creative, intuitive responses to ambiguity, contradiction, and...
Why Stock Markets Crash: Critical Events in Complex Financial Systems (Princeton Science Library)
Why Stock Markets Crash: Critical Events in Complex Financial Systems (Princeton Science Library)

The scientific study of complex systems has transformed a wide range of disciplines in recent years, enabling researchers in both the natural and social sciences to model and predict phenomena as diverse as earthquakes, global warming, demographic patterns, financial crises, and the failure of materials. In this book, Didier Sornette boldly...

Information Science
Information Science
From cell phones to Web portals, advances in information and communications technology have thrust society into an information age that is far-reaching, fast-moving, 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...
Gamma: Exploring Euler's Constant
Gamma: Exploring Euler's Constant
Among 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 Computing
Modeling with Data: Tools and Techniques for Scientific Computing
I 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...
Symmetry
Symmetry
STARTING 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...
When Least Is Best: How Mathematicians Discovered Many Clever Ways to Make Things as Small (or as Large) as Possible
When Least Is Best: How Mathematicians Discovered Many Clever Ways to Make Things as Small (or as Large) as Possible
This book was terrific fun to read! I thought I would skim the chapters to write my review, but I was hooked by the preface, and read through the first 100 pages in one sitting... [Nahin shows] obvious delight and enjoyment--he is having fun and it is contagious. -- Bonnie Shulman MAA Online When Least is Best is clearly the result of immense...
Psychological Types (Collected Works of C.G. Jung Vol.6)
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...
Photonic Crystals: Molding the Flow of Light (Second Edition)
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 band-gap 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 up-to-date, concise,...
