Analytical Geometry of Three Dimensions (Dover Books on Mathematics)
Analytical Geometry of Three Dimensions (Dover Books on Mathematics)
Brief but rigorous, this text is geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students. It covers the coordinate system, planes and lines, spheres, homogeneous coordinates, general equations of the second degree, quadric in Cartesian coordinates, and intersection of quadrics.
Mathematician, physicist, and astronomer, William

The Mathematical Theory of Cosmic Strings (Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation)
The Mathematical Theory of Cosmic Strings (Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation)
Anderson provides a comprehensive summary and review of the mathematical theory of cosmic strings. The subject is not in a state of rapid change so the book is up to date and it is likely to remain so for some time. Although the book is technical and requires a strong mathematical background and an interest in differential geometry, it is well...
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...
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)...
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...
Exploring Black Holes: Introduction to General Relativity
Exploring Black Holes: Introduction to General Relativity
A concise, direct examination of general relativity and black holes, Exploring Black Holes provides tools that motivate tools that motivate readers to become active participants in carrying out their own investigations about curved spacetime near earth and black holes. The authors use calculus and algebra to make general relativity...
Le Verrier_Magnificent and Detestable Astronomer (Astrophysics and Space Science Library) (English and French Edition)
Le Verrier_Magnificent and Detestable Astronomer (Astrophysics and Space Science Library) (English and French Edition)

Translated from the original French by Bernard Sheehan; Edited and with an introduction by Dr. William Sheehan, a neuroscientist and amateur astronomer who is also a research fellow of the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona

Le Verrier was a superb scientist. His discovery of Neptune in 1846 made him the most famous...

The Physical Nature of Consciousness (Advances in Consciousness Research)
The Physical Nature of Consciousness (Advances in Consciousness Research)

The Physical Nature of Consciousness contains twelve chapters that discuss recent and new perspectives on the relation between modern physics and consciousness.
Stuart Hameroff opens with an extended and updated exposition of the Penrose/Hameroff Orch-OR model, and subsequently addresses recent criticisms of quantum approaches

Tensors: The Mathematics of Relativity Theory and Continuum Mechanics
Tensors: The Mathematics of Relativity Theory and Continuum Mechanics
This book emerged from courses taught at the University College of Dublin, Carnegie-Mellon University and mostly at Simon Fraser University. This is a modern introduction to the theory of tensor algebra and tensor analysis. It discusses tensor algebra in Chapters 1 and 2. Differential manifold is introduced in Chapter 3. Tensor analysis,...
Theoretical Foundations of Quantum Information Processing and Communication: Selected Topics (Lecture Notes in Physics)
Theoretical Foundations of Quantum Information Processing and Communication: Selected Topics (Lecture Notes in Physics)

Based on eight extensive lectures selected from those given at the renowned Chris Engelbrecht Summer School in Theoretical Physics in South Africa, this text on the theoretical foundations of quantum information processing and communication covers an array of topics, including quantum probabilities, open systems, and non-Markovian dynamics and...

Narrative Space and Time: Representing Impossible Topologies in Literature (Routledge Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Literature)
Narrative Space and Time: Representing Impossible Topologies in Literature (Routledge Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Literature)

Space is a central topic in cultural and narrative theory today, although in most cases theory assumes Newtonian absolute space. However, the idea of a universal homogeneous space is now obsolete. Black holes, multiple dimensions, quantum entanglement, and spatio-temporal distortions of relativity have passed into culture at large. This book...

Visions of the Future: Chemistry and Life Science
Visions of the Future: Chemistry and Life Science
‘… you can’t deny the excitement the writers felt for what they are doing; and in these secular times such excitement must serve to replace the fear of the Lord as the beginning of wisdom.’?Sir Brian Pippard, Times Higher Education Supplement

‘I enjoyed these glimpses of what is going on and (always a good
