Lost in Math: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray

Lost in Math: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray Lowest new price: $19.81
Lowest used price: $15.92
List price: $30.00
Author: Sabine Hossenfelder

A contrarian argues that modern physicists' obsession with beauty has given us wonderful math but bad science

Whether pondering black holes or predicting discoveries at CERN, physicists believe the best theories are beautiful, natural, and elegant, and this standard separates popular theories from disposable ones. This is why, Sabine Hossenfelder argues, we have not seen a major breakthrough in the foundations of physics for more than four decades. The belief in beauty has become so dogmatic that it now conflicts with scientific objectivity: observation has been unable to confirm mindboggling theories, like supersymmetry or grand unification, invented by physicists based on aesthetic criteria. Worse, these "too good to not be true" theories are actually untestable and they have left the field in a cul-de-sac. To escape, physicists must rethink their methods. Only by embracing reality as it is can science discover the truth.

Quasiregular Mappings (Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete. 3. Folge / A Series of Modern Surveys in Mathematics)

Quasiregular Mappings (Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete. 3. Folge / A Series of Modern Surveys in Mathematics) Lowest new price: $99.00
Lowest used price: $80.00
List price: $99.00
Author: Seppo Rickman

Quasiregular Mappings extend quasiconformal theory to the noninjective case.They give a natural and beautiful generalization of the geometric aspects ofthe theory of analytic functions of one complex variable to Euclidean n-space or, more generally, to Riemannian n-manifolds. This book is a self-contained exposition of the subject. A braod spectrum of results of both analytic and geometric character are presented, and the methods vary accordingly. The main tools are the variational integral method and the extremal length method, both of which are thoroughly developed here. Reshetnyak's basic theorem on discreteness and openness is used from the beginning, but the proof by means of variational integrals is postponed until near the end. Thus, the method of extremal length is being used at an early stage and leads, among other things, to geometric proofs of Picard-type theorems and a defect relation, which are some of the high points of the present book.


Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory: The Theoretical Minimum

Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory: The Theoretical Minimum Lowest new price: $10.40
Lowest used price: $8.69
List price: $30.00
Author: Leonard Susskind

The third volume in the bestselling physics series cracks open Einstein's special relativity and field theory


Physicist Leonard Susskind and data engineer Art Friedman are back. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity and Maxwell's classical field theory. Using their typical brand of real math, enlightening drawings, and humor, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and electromagnetism. It's a must-read for both devotees of the series and any armchair physicist who wants to improve their knowledge of physics' deepest truths.

Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces: Revised and Updated Second Edition (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces: Revised and Updated Second Edition (Dover Books on Mathematics) Lowest new price: $20.05
Lowest used price: $18.47
List price: $34.95
Author: Manfredo P. do Carmo

One of the most widely used texts in its field, this volume introduces the differential geometry of curves and surfaces in both local and global aspects. The presentation departs from the traditional approach with its more extensive use of elementary linear algebra and its emphasis on basic geometrical facts rather than machinery or random details. Many examples and exercises enhance the clear, well-written exposition, along with hints and answers to some of the problems.
The treatment begins with a chapter on curves, followed by explorations of regular surfaces, the geometry of the Gauss map, the intrinsic geometry of surfaces, and global differential geometry. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of mathematics, this text's prerequisites include an undergraduate course in linear algebra and some familiarity with the calculus of several variables. For this second edition, the author has corrected, revised, and updated the entire volume.

Author: Charles W. Calhoun
Brand: Calhoun, Charles W./ Schesliner, Arthur M., Jr. (EDT)

The scion of a political dynasty ushers in the era of big government

Politics was in Benjamin Harrison's blood. His great-grandfather signed the Declaration and his grandfather, William Henry Harrison, was the ninth president of the United States. Harrison, a leading Indiana lawyer, became a Republican Party champion, even taking a leave from the Civil War to campaign for Lincoln. After a scandal-free term in the Senate-no small feat in the Gilded Age-the Republicans chose Harrison as their presidential candidate in 1888. Despite losing the popular vote, he trounced the incumbent, Grover Cleveland, in the electoral college.

In contrast to standard histories, which dismiss Harrison's presidency as corrupt and inactive, Charles W. Calhoun sweeps away the stereotypes of the age to reveal the accomplishments of our twenty-third president. With Congress under Republican control, he exemplified the activist president, working feverishly to put the Party's planks into law and approving the first billion-dollar peacetime budget. But the Democrats won Congress in 1890, stalling his legislative agenda, and with the First Lady ill, his race for reelection proceeded quietly. (She died just before the election.) In the end, Harrison could not beat Cleveland in their unprecedented rematch.

With dazzling attention to this president's life and the social tapestry of his times, Calhoun compellingly reconsiders Harrison's legacy.

Introduction to Differential Geometry of Space Curves and Surfaces: Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces Lowest new price: $14.25
Lowest used price: $19.99
List price: $15.00
Author: Taha Sochi

This book is about differential geometry of space curves and surfaces. The formulation and presentation are largely based on a tensor calculus approach. It can be used as part of a course on tensor calculus as well as a textbook or a reference for an intermediate-level course on differential geometry of curves and surfaces. The book is furnished with an index, extensive sets of exercises and many cross references, which are hyperlinked for the ebook users, to facilitate linking related concepts and sections. The book also contains a considerable number of 2D and 3D graphic illustrations to help the readers and users to visualize the ideas and understand the abstract concepts. We also provided an introductory chapter where the main concepts and techniques needed to understand the offered materials of differential geometry are outlined to make the book fairly self-contained and reduce the need for external references.
