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...
The Optics of Life: A Biologist's Guide to Light in Nature
Optics--a field of physics focusing on the study of light--is also central to many areas of biology, including vision, ecology, botany, animal behavior, neurobiology, and molecular biology. The Optics of Life introduces the fundamentals of optics to biologists and nonphysicists, giving them the tools they need to successfully incorporate...
Design of Hashing Algorithms (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
Historically, computer security is related to both cryptography and access
control in operating systems. Cryptography, although mostly applied in
the military and diplomacy, was used to protect communication channels
and storage facilities (especially the backups). In the seventies there was a
breakthrough in cryptography - the...
Complex Variables Demystified Complex variables, and its more advanced version, complex analysis, is one of the most fascinating areas in pure and applied mathematics. It all started when mathematicians were mystified by equations that could only be solved if you could take the square roots of negative numbers. This seemed bizarre, and back then nobody could imagine that... Biophysical Chemistry
"Biophysical Chemistry is an outstanding book that delivers both fundamental and complex biophysical principles, along with an excellent overview of the current biophysical research areas, in a manner that makes it accessible for mathematically and non-mathematically inclined readers." (Journal of Chemical Biology,...
