Swarm Intelligence in Data Mining (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Swarm Intelligence in Data Mining (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Science is a swarm.

To the layperson, the stereotypical scientist is logical, clear-thinking, wellinformed but perhaps socially awkward, carefully planning his or her experiments and then analyzing the resulting data deliberately, with precision. The scientist works alone, emotion-free, searching only for truth, having been well advised

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...

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)...
Discrete or Continuous?: The Quest for Fundamental Length in Modern Physics
Discrete or Continuous?: The Quest for Fundamental Length in Modern Physics

The idea of infinity plays a crucial role in our understanding of the universe, with the infinite spacetime continuum perhaps the best-known example - but is spacetime really continuous? Throughout the history of science, many have felt that the continuum model is an unphysical idealization, and that spacetime should be thought of as...

The Tao of Chemistry and Life: A Scientific Journey
The Tao of Chemistry and Life: A Scientific Journey

As most writers will testify, writing a book entails a fair amount of hard work. It follows that one needs a reason for undertaking the task in the first place. The easiest motivation to understand for writing a book, and perhaps the most common one, is the desire for monetary reward. I do not know what inspired J. K. Rowling to write her...

Magic Universe: A Grand Tour of Modern Science
Magic Universe: A Grand Tour of Modern Science

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...

Theory of Gravitational Interactions (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)
Theory of Gravitational Interactions (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)

This up-to-date, self-contained review of the theory of gravitational interactions presents a traditional introduction, then discuss analogies and differences between a geometric theory of gravity and the gauge theories of the other fundamental interactions.

General Relativity
General Relativity
"Wald's book is clearly the first textbook on general relativity with a totally modern point of view; and it succeeds very well where others are only partially successful. The book includes full discussions of many problems of current interest which are not treated in any extant book, and all these matters are considered with perception and...
The Data Book of Astronomy
The Data Book of Astronomy
The Solar System consists of one star (the Sun), the nine principal planets, their satellites and lesser bodies such as asteroids, comets and meteoroids, plus a vast amount of thinly-spread interplanetary matter. The Sun contains more than 99% of the mass of the system, and Jupiter is more massive than all the other planets combined. The centre of...
