Oppenheimer: The Tragic Intellect
Oppenheimer: The Tragic Intellect
At a time when the Manhattan Project was synonymous with large-scale science, physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904–67) represented the new sociocultural power of the American intellectual. Catapulted to fame as director of the Los Alamos atomic weapons laboratory, Oppenheimer occupied a key position in the compact between science and the...
Terrorism and Public Safety Policing: Implications for the Obama Presidency
Terrorism and Public Safety Policing: Implications for the Obama Presidency

A Pragmatic Answer to the Systematic Change Already Underway

The trends, data, and battle-tested logic do not lie. A perfect storm of extremist ideologies is on the horizon that threatens to challenge the current state of public safety—forcing police chiefs, public administrators, and security...

Invitation to Number Theory (New Mathematical Library)
Invitation to Number Theory (New Mathematical Library)
This book is one of a series written by professional mathematicians in order to make some important mathematical ideas interesting and understandable to a large audience of high school students and laymen. Most of the volumes in the New Mathematical Library cover topics not usually included in the high school curriculum; they vary in difficulty,...
Algebraic Models in Geometry (Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
Algebraic Models in Geometry (Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
Rational homotopy is a very powerful tool for differential topology and geometry. This text aims to provide graduates and researchers with the tools necessary for the use of rational homotopy in geometry. Algebraic Models in Geometry has been written for topologists who are drawn to geometrical problems amenable to topological methods and also...
Ants, Bikes, and Clocks: Problem Solving for Undergraduates
Ants, Bikes, and Clocks: Problem Solving for Undergraduates
Mathematics educators agree that problem solving is one of the essential skills their students should possess, yet few mathematics courses or textbooks are devoted entirely to developing this skill. Supported by narrative, examples, and exercises, Ants, Bikes, and Clocks: Problem Solving for Undergraduates is a readable and enjoyable text designed...
The Savage: A Novel
The Savage: A Novel

In the raucous and action-packed follow-up to Donnybrook, mayhem is still the order of the day―only more so

The dollar has failed; the grid is wiped out. Walmarts are looted and homes are abandoned as common folk flee and bloodthirsty militias fight for power. In a twenty-first century America gone haywire,...

Real-Life Math: Everyday Use of Mathematical Concepts
Real-Life Math: Everyday Use of Mathematical Concepts
"What does this have to do with real life?" is a question that plagues mathematics teachers across America, as students are confronted with abstract topics in their high school mathematics courses. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics emphasizes the importance of making real world connections in teaching mathematics so that...
Real-Time Stability Assessment in Modern Power System Control Centers
Real-Time Stability Assessment in Modern Power System Control Centers
This book answers the need for a practical, hands-on guide for assessing power stability in real time, rather than in offline simulations. Since the book is primarily geared toward the practical aspects of the subject, theoretical background is reduced to the strictest minimum. For the benefit of readers who may not be quite familiar with the...
Designing Embedded Processors: A Low Power Perspective
Designing Embedded Processors: A Low Power Perspective
As we embrace the world of personal, portable, and perplexingly complex digital systems, it has befallen upon the bewildered designer to take advantage of the available transistors to produce a system which is small, fast, cheap and correct, yet possesses increased functionality.

Increasingly, these systems have to consume little energy....
