Metonymy: Hidden Shortcuts in Language, Thought and Communication (Cambridge Studies in Cognitive Linguistics)
Metonymy: Hidden Shortcuts in Language, Thought and Communication (Cambridge Studies in Cognitive Linguistics)

'Metonymy' is a type of figurative language used in everyday conversation, a form of shorthand that allows us to use our shared knowledge to communicate with fewer words than we would otherwise need. 'I'll pencil you in' and 'let me give you a hand' are both examples of metonymic language. Metonymy serves a wide...

Digital Nets and Sequences: Discrepancy Theory and Quasi-Monte Carlo Integration
Digital Nets and Sequences: Discrepancy Theory and Quasi-Monte Carlo Integration

Indispensable for students, invaluable for researchers, this comprehensive treatment of contemporary quasi-Monte Carlo methods, digital nets and sequences, and discrepancy theory starts from scratch with detailed explanations of the basic concepts and then advances to current methods used in research. As deterministic versions of the Monte...

Principles of Embedded Networked Systems Design
Principles of Embedded Networked Systems Design
"...this volume represents a real mine of information...anyone working in the field would benefit from owning a copy." IEEE Communications Engineer

Embedded network systems (ENS) provide a set of technologies that can link the physical world to large-scale networks in applications, such as monitoring of borders,

Fundamentals of Error-Correcting Codes
Fundamentals of Error-Correcting Codes

Fundamentals of Error Correcting Codes is an in-depth introduction to coding theory from both an engineering and mathematical viewpoint. It reviews classical topics, and gives much coverage of recent techniques which could previously only be found in specialist publications. Numerous exercises and examples and an accessible writing style make...

The Artful Universe Expanded
The Artful Universe Expanded
Our love of art, writes John Barrow, is the end product of millions of years of evolution. How we react to a beautiful painting or symphony draws upon instincts laid down long before humans existed. Now, in this enhanced edition of the highly popular The Artful Universe, Barrow further explores the close ties between our aesthetic appreciation and...
Plato and the Divided Self
Plato and the Divided Self

Plato's account of the tripartite soul is a memorable feature of dialogues like the Republic, Phaedrus and Timaeus: it is one of his most famous and influential yet least understood theories. It presents human nature as both essentially multiple and diverse - and yet somehow also one - divided into a fully human 'rational' part, a...

The Constants of Nature: From Alpha to Omega--the Numbers That Encode the Deepest Secrets of the Universe
The Constants of Nature: From Alpha to Omega--the Numbers That Encode the Deepest Secrets of the Universe
A major contribution to our understanding of the basic laws of the universe -- from the author of The Book of Nothing.

The constants of nature are the fundamental laws of physics that apply throughout the universe: gravity, velocity of light, electromagnetism and quantum mechanics. They encode the deepest secrets of the...

Knots and Links
Knots and Links
Knot theory is the study of embeddings of circles in space. It is a subject in which naturally occurring questions are often so simple to state that they can be explained to a child, yet finding answers may require ideas from the forefront of research. It is a subject of both depth and subtlety.

The subject started to develop

Concurrent and Real-Time Programming in Ada
Concurrent and Real-Time Programming in Ada
Ada is the only ISO-standard, object-oriented, concurrent, real-time programming language. It is intended for use in large, long-lived applications where reliability and efficiency are essential, particularly real-time and embedded systems. In this book, Alan Burns and Andy Wellings give a thorough, self-contained account of how the Ada tasking...
The Philosophy of Gottlob Frege
The Philosophy of Gottlob Frege
Begriffsschrift was, as the subtitle announced, a formula language of pure
thought modeled upon the language of arithmetic. Frege borrowed the notation
for functions from arithmetic, and enlarged the realm of applicability
of a function beyond the domain of numbers. Then, supplanting the
subject/predicate division, which was

Quantum Cosmology and Baby Universes
Quantum Cosmology and Baby Universes
Quantum gravity is notoriously a subject where problems vastly outnumber results. This is no surprise at short distances, on the order of the Planck length, where most of us expect quantum fluctuations in the metric to cause space-time itself to lose its meaning and gravity to be subsumed (along with the other so-called fundamental interactions)...
Introductory Quantum Optics
Introductory Quantum Optics
Quantum optics is one of the liveliest fields in physics at present. While it has been a dominant research field for at least two decades, with much graduate activity, in the past few years it has started to impact the undergraduate curriculum. This book developed from courses we have taught to final year undergraduates and beginning graduate...
