Equidistribution in Number Theory, An Introduction
From July 11th to July 22nd, 2005, a NATO advanced study institute, as part
of the series “S´eminaire de math´ematiques sup´erieures”, was held at the Universit
´e de Montr´eal, on the subject Equidistribution in the theory of numbers.
There were about one hundred participants from sixteen... Topics in Geometry, Coding Theory and Cryptography (Algebra and Applications) The purpose of this reviewarticle is to serve as an introduction and at the same time, as an invitation to the theory of towers of function fields over finite fields. More specifically, we treat here the case of explicit towers; i.e., towers where the function fields are given by explicit equations. The asymptotic behaviour of the genus and of the... Design Driven Testing: Test Smarter, Not Harder
The groundbreaking book Design Driven Testing brings sanity back to the software development process by flipping around the concept of Test Driven Development (TDD)—restoring the concept of using testing to verify a design instead of pretending that unit tests are a replacement for design. Anyone who feels that TDD is...
A PhD Is Not Enough!: A Guide to Survival in Science
Despite your graduate education, brainpower, and technical prowess, your career in scientific research is far from assured. Permanent positions are scarce, science survival is rarely part of formal graduate training, and a good mentor is hard to find.
In A Ph.D. Is Not Enough!, physicist Peter J. Feibelman lays...

The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
The theory of elliptic curves is distinguished by its long history and by the diversity of the methods that have been used in its study. This book treats the arithmetic theory of elliptic curves in its modern formulation, through the use of basic algebraic number theory and algebraic geometry. The book begins with a brief discussion of the...
Morality in the Philosophy of Thomas Hobbes: Cases in the Law of Nature In this book, S. A. Lloyd offers a radically new interpretation of Hobbes's laws of nature, revealing them to be not egoistic precepts of personal prudence but rather moral instructions for obtaining the common good. This account of Hobbes's moral philosophy stands in contrast to both divine command and rational choice interpretations. Drawing from... The Atomic Corporation: Rational Proposals for Uncertain Times
In Atomic the authors' revolutionary theory is put to the test. Looking across all sectors of business, including retail banking, financial services, telecommunications, IT and consultancy, carbon-based corporations (oil and gas companies), and consumer products companies, Camrass and Farncombe discover some real eye-openers, including...
