Exploring Monte Carlo Methods
Exploring Monte Carlo Methods

Exploring Monte Carlo Methods is a basic text that describes the numerical methods that have come to be known as "Monte Carlo." The book treats the subject generically through the first eight chapters and, thus, should be of use to anyone who wants to learn to use Monte Carlo. The next two chapters focus on applications in nuclear...

The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Science of Everything
The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Science of Everything
Did you ever wonder how somebody ever figured out all the details of making a cellphone system work? What about those giant MRI machines that can take a picture of your insides without a single incision? Then there is the universe. We think we know at least something about how it started billions of years ago and where it’s going billions of...

The Fifth Postulate: How Unraveling A Two Thousand Year Old Mystery Unraveled the Universe
The Fifth Postulate: How Unraveling A Two Thousand Year Old Mystery Unraveled the Universe
What do Einstein's theory of relativity, string theory, and lots of other mind-bending—and space-bending—revelations of modern physics have in common? None of them could have been discovered until scientists and mathematicians recognized an uncomfortable truth—that there was a reason the world's greatest mathematical minds had...

The Character of Physical Law (Messenger Lectures, 1964)
The Character of Physical Law (Messenger Lectures, 1964)

In these Messenger Lectures, originally delivered at Cornell University and recorded for television by the BBC, Richard Feynman offers an overview of selected physical laws and gathers their common features into one broad principle of invariance. He maintains at the outset that the importance of a physical law is not "how clever...

Solitons, Instantons, and Twistors (Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
Solitons, Instantons, and Twistors (Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

Most nonlinear differential equations arising in natural sciences admit chaotic behaviour and cannot be solved analytically. Integrable systems lie on the other extreme. They possess regular, stable, and well behaved solutions known as solitons and instantons. These solutions play important roles in pure and applied mathematics as well as in...
