Newton's Gravity: An Introductory Guide to the Mechanics of the Universe (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)
Newton's Gravity: An Introductory Guide to the Mechanics of the Universe (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)

“Newton’s Gravity” conveys the power of simple mathematics to tell the fundamental truth about nature. Many people, for example, know the tides are caused by the pull of the Moon and to a lesser extent the Sun. But very few can explain exactly how and why that happens. Fewer still can calculate the  actual pulls of the...

Quantum Computing

The twentieth century witnessed the birth of revolutionary ideas in the phys- ical sciences. These ideas began to shake the traditional view of the universe dating back to the days of Newton, even to the days of Galileo. Albert Ein- stein is usually identified as the creator of the relativity theory, a theory that is used to model the...

The Universal Book of Mathematics: From Abracadabra to Zeno's Paradoxes
The Universal Book of Mathematics: From Abracadabra to Zeno's Paradoxes

What makes a number weird, and why, as far as anyone can tell, aren’t weird numbers odd? What do monsters, moonshine, and 24-dimensional oranges have in common? Why couldn’t Sam Loyd get a patent for his famous fifteen puzzle? What is the significance of the statement "the smallest number not nameable in under ten words"?...

The Evolution Deceit
The Evolution Deceit
For some people the theory of evolution or Darwinism has only scientific connotations, with seemingly no direct implication in their daily lives. This is, of course, a common misunderstanding. Far beyond just being an issue within the framework of the biological sciences, the theory of evolution constitutes the underpinning of a deceptive...
Weighing the World: The Reverend John Michell of Thornhill (Archimedes)
Weighing the World: The Reverend John Michell of Thornhill (Archimedes)

The book about John Michell (1724-93) has two parts. The first and longest part is biographical, an account of Michell’s home setting (Nottinghamshire in England), the clerical world in which he grew up (Church of England), the university (Cambridge) where he studied and taught, and the scientific activities he made the center of his...

Learning Structure and Schemas from Documents (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Learning Structure and Schemas from Documents (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
It was not long ago that database systems were revolutionized through the birth of the relational concepts and theory, which are now materialized in most commercial database management systems. It was then thought that data should be structured in a rather simple way to support the day-to-day business operations. This has...
Imagining the Tenth Dimension: A New Way of Thinking About Time and Space
Imagining the Tenth Dimension: A New Way of Thinking About Time and Space

Reality, today's physicists tell us, is created by the vibrations of exquisitely tiny superstrings in ten spatial dimensions. Ten dimensions? Most of us have barely gotten used to the idea that there are four.

Using simple geometry and an easygoing writing style, author Rob Bryanton starts with the lower dimensions that we are...
