Applebaum offers beginning university students the perfect introduction to the age of the scientific revolution from 1500 to 1800. Many scientific ideas and much medical information improved dramatically during those times as investigators began a relentless drive, which continues today, toward a better understanding of the natural world....One...

Modern astronomical research is beset with a vast range of statistical challenges, ranging from reducing data from megadatasets to characterizing an amazing variety of variable celestial objects or testing astrophysical theory. Linking astronomy to the world of modern statistics, this volume is a unique resource, introducing astronomers to...

As a prolific author, BBC commentator, and magazine editor, Nigel Calder has spent a lifetime spotting and explaining the big discoveries in all branches of science. In Magic Universe, he draws on his vast experience to offer readers a lively, far-reaching look at modern science in all its glory, shedding light on the latest ideas in...

Henry Frederick Baker (1866-1956) was a renowned British mathematician specialising in algebraic geometry. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1898 and appointed the Lowndean Professor of Astronomy and Geometry in the University of Cambridge in 1914. First published between 1922 and 1925, the six-volume Principles of Geometry was...

The latest research and developments in robust adaptive beamforming

Recent work has made great strides toward devising robust adaptive beamformers that vastly improve signal strength against background noise and directional interference. This dynamic technology has diverse applications, including radar, sonar, acoustics, astronomy, seismology,...

This book is for people who want to learn basic astronomy without taking a formal course. It also can serve as a supplemental text in a classroom, tutored, or home-schooling environment. I recommend that you start at the beginning of this book and go straight through.

One significant outcome of the missionary efforts of the Society of Jesus was the transmission of some of the mathematical sciences from early modern Europe to East Asia. Following the Padroado (1493-1494), Portugal became the patron of all missions in that part of the world. This book brings together important new data and analyses by a reputed...

This Sixth Edition of Calculus continues the effort to promote courses in which understanding and computation reinforce each other. Calculus: Single and Multivariable 6th Edition reflects the many voices of users at research universities, four-year colleges, community colleges, and secondary schools. This new edition has been streamlined to...

"A fascinating journey."--Kirkus Reviews "He acknowledges the limitations of seeking a formula to describe the emotional aspects of experience and the necessity of incorporating these variables into the long-sought-after theory of everything."--Science News "Recommended for general readers; lower-division...

From prehistoric times, mankind has looked up at the night sky, and puzzled at the changing positions of the stars. How far away they are is a question that has confounded scientists for centuries. Over the last few hundred years, many scientific careers – and considerable resources – have been devoted to measuring their positions...

This book suits both graduate students and researchers with a focus on discovering
knowledge from scientific data. The use of computational power for data analysis
and knowledge discovery in scientific disciplines has found its roots with the revolution
of high-performance computing systems. Computational science in physics,...
