Great Feuds in Mathematics: Ten of the Liveliest Disputes Ever
Great Feuds in Mathematics: Ten of the Liveliest Disputes Ever

Mathematical disputes offer indisputable proof that great mathematical minds are calculating in more ways than one. Fueled by greed, jealousy, ambition, and ego, they have plots worthy of a soap opera, pitting brother against brother, father against son, and student against mentor.

In the sixteenth century, Cardano and Tartaglia battled...

The Art of Profitability
The Art of Profitability
'Interesting, concise... This little book packs quite a punch.' - Miami Herald

What do Barbie dolls, Nokia phones, and American Express credit cards have in common? They all represent a powerful business model called pyramid profit. How about Intel, Microsoft, and Stephen King? They all exploit another model called value chain

Prototyping: A Practitioner's Guide
Prototyping: A Practitioner's Guide
What’s the difference between theory and practice? Albert Einstein once said, “In theory they are the same. In practice, they are not.”

Practice makes perfect. Champion sports teams practice constantly. Zen masters will tell you that the only way to achieve enlightenment is practice.

Principles of Solid Mechanics
Principles of Solid Mechanics
There is no area of applied science more diverse and powerful than the mechanics of deformable solids nor one with a broader and richer history. From Galileo and Hooke through Coulomb, Maxwell, and Kelvin to von Neuman and Einstein, the question of how solids behave for structural applications has been a basic theme for physical research exciting...
Molecular Relaxation in Liquids
Molecular Relaxation in Liquids

This book brings together many different relaxation phenomena in liquids under a common umbrella and provides a unified view of apparently diverse phenomena. It aligns recent experimental results obtained with modern techniques with recent theoretical developments. Such close interaction between experiment and theory in this area goes back to...

Einstein and Heisenberg: The Controversy Over Quantum Physics (Springer Biographies)
This is a fascinating account of two great scientists of the 20th century: Einstein and Heisenberg, discoverers, respectively, of the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. It connects the history of modern physics to the life stories of these two extraordinary physicists.These discoveries laid the foundation of modern physics, without...
Introduction to General Relativity
Introduction to General Relativity
A student-friendly style, over 100 illustrations, and numerous exercises are brought together in this textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in physics and mathematics. Lewis Ryder develops the theory of general relativity in detail. Covering the core topics of black holes, gravitational radiation, and cosmology, he...
Spacetime, Geometry and Gravitation (Progress in Mathematical Physics)
Spacetime, Geometry and Gravitation (Progress in Mathematical Physics)

Teaching Einstein’s general relativity at introductory level poses problems because students cannot begin to appreciate the basics of the theory unless they learn a sufficient amount of Riemannian geometry. Most elementary books take the easy course of telling the students a few working rules stripping the mathematical details to a minimum...

The Great Beyond: Higher Dimensions, Parallel Universes and the Extraordinary Search for a Theory of Everything
The Great Beyond: Higher Dimensions, Parallel Universes and the Extraordinary Search for a Theory of Everything

It is among the most elegant, radical, and tantalizing theories ever to be fashioned by the keen lathe of mathematical insight. For the better part of two centuries, the notion of higher dimensions beyond space and time has fueled the imaginations of scientists, writers, occultists, and more than a few con artists.

By turns...
