Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (Dover Thrift Editions)

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (Dover Thrift Editions) Lowest new price: $1.16
Lowest used price: $0.10
List price: $3.00
Author: Edwin A. Abbott
Brand: imusti

This masterpiece of science (and mathematical) fiction is a delightfully unique and highly entertaining satire that has charmed readers for more than 100 years. The work of English clergyman, educator and Shakespearean scholar Edwin A. Abbott (1838-1926), it describes the journeys of A. Square, a mathematician and resident of the two-dimensional Flatland, where women-thin, straight lines-are the lowliest of shapes, and where men may have any number of sides, depending on their social status.
Through strange occurrences that bring him into contact with a host of geometric forms, Square has adventures in Spaceland (three dimensions), Lineland (one dimension) and Pointland (no dimensions) and ultimately entertains thoughts of visiting a land of four dimensions—a revolutionary idea for which he is returned to his two-dimensional world. Charmingly illustrated by the author, Flatland is not only fascinating reading, it is still a first-rate fictional introduction to the concept of the multiple dimensions of space. "Instructive, entertaining, and stimulating to the imagination." — Mathematics Teacher.

The Lady Tasting Tea: How Statistics Revolutionized Science in the Twentieth Century

The Lady Tasting Tea: How Statistics Revolutionized Science in the Twentieth Century Lowest new price: $13.10
Lowest used price: $5.82
List price: $21.99
Author: David Salsburg
Brand: Holt McDougal

An insightful, revealing history of the magical mathematics that transformed our world.

At a summer tea party in Cambridge, England, a guest states that tea poured into milk tastes different from milk poured into tea. Her notion is shouted down by the scientific minds of the group. But one man, Ronald Fisher, proposes to scientifically test the hypothesis. There is no better person to conduct such an experiment, for Fisher is a pioneer in the field of statistics.

The Lady Tasting Tea spotlights not only Fisher's theories but also the revolutionary ideas of dozens of men and women which affect our modern everyday lives. Writing with verve and wit, David Salsburg traces breakthroughs ranging from the rise and fall of Karl Pearson's theories to the methods of quality control that rebuilt postwar Japan's economy, including a pivotal early study on the capacity of a small beer cask at the Guinness brewing factory. Brimming with intriguing tidbits and colorful characters, The Lady Tasting Tea salutes the spirit of those who dared to look at the world in a new way.

Development of Memristor Based Circuits (World Scientific Series on Nonlinear Science, Series A)

Development of Memristor Based Circuits (World Scientific Series on Nonlinear Science, Series A) Lowest new price: $64.99
Lowest used price: $79.58
List price: $78.00
Author: Herbert Ho Iu
Brand: Iu Herbert Ho ching

In 1971, Leon O. Chua presented the formulation of a memristor, which was postulated as the fourth circuit element in electrical circuit theory — one that could join the existing core group of elements: capacitor, resistor and inductor. For over thirty years, the memristor had held no significance in circuit theory. Then in 2008, a group of scientists from Hewlett-Packard Labs (HP) developed a working memristor. Although the solid state implementation of the memristor inspired appreciable interest in developing applications, memristors are not yet available on the market to date. HP labs do not expect to introduce memristors in a product for a few more years. Therefore, the development of memristor-based circuits is essential for further experimental research on the applications.Combining an overview, tutorial and technical articles, the book describes the state-of-the-art research on significant issues in the field. Examples of memristor mimicking circuits are presented, and applications of memristor-based circuits addressed.

An Introduction to Beam Physics (Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation)

An Introduction to Beam Physics (Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation) Lowest new price: $51.66
Lowest used price: $85.86
List price: $62.95
Author: Martin Berz

The field of beam physics touches many areas of physics, engineering, and the sciences. In general terms, beams describe ensembles of particles with initial conditions similar enough to be treated together as a group so that the motion is a weakly nonlinear perturbation of a chosen reference particle. Particle beams are used in a variety of areas, ranging from electron microscopes, particle spectrometers, medical radiation facilities, powerful light sources, and astrophysics to large synchrotrons and storage rings such as the LHC at CERN.

An Introduction to Beam Physics is based on lectures given at Michigan State University’s Department of Physics and Astronomy, the online VUBeam program, the U.S. Particle Accelerator School, the CERN Academic Training Programme, and various other venues. It is accessible to beginning graduate and upper-division undergraduate students in physics, mathematics, and engineering. The book begins with a historical overview of methods for generating and accelerating beams, highlighting important advances through the eyes of their developers using their original drawings. The book then presents concepts of linear beam optics, transfer matrices, the general equations of motion, and the main techniques used for single- and multi-pass systems. Some advanced nonlinear topics, including the computation of aberrations and a study of resonances, round out the presentation.


Mathematische Werke / Mathematical Works (English and German Edition)

Mathematische Werke / Mathematical Works (English and German Edition) Lowest new price: $391.00
List price: $391.00
Author: Erich Kähler

Für die meisten Mathematiker und für viele mathematische Physiker ist der Name Erich Kähler eng verbunden mit wichtigen Begriffen der Geometrie wie zum Beispiel Kähler-Metrik, Kähler-Mannigfaltigkeiten und Kähler-Gruppen. Diese Begriffe gehen alle auf ein 14-seitiges Papier aus dem Jahr 1932 zurück. Dabei handelt es sich jedoch nur um einen sehr kleinen Teil der vielen herausragenden Leistungen Kählers, die ein ungewöhnlich breites Spektrum umfassen: Von der Himmelsmechanik gelangte er zur komplexen Funktionentheorie, zu Differenzialgleichungen, zu analytischer und komplexer Geometrie mit Differenzialformen und schließlich zu seinem eigentlichen Hauptthema, der arithmetischen Geometrie, in der er ein Begriffssystem schuf, das der Vorläufer des heute verwendeten Systems von Grothendieck und Dieudonné ist und in weiten Teilen mit diesem übereinstimmt. Sein Hauptinteresse war es, die Gemeinsamkeiten in der Vielfalt der mathematischen Themen zu finden und so Mathematik als universelle Sprache zu etablieren.

The Principia: The Authoritative Translation and Guide: Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy Lowest new price: $20.36

Author: Sir Isaac Newton
Brand: imusti

In his monumental 1687 work, Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, known familiarly as the Principia, Isaac Newton laid out in mathematical terms the principles of time, force, and motion that have guided the development of modern physical science. Even after more than three centuries and the revolutions of Einsteinian relativity and quantum mechanics, Newtonian physics continues to account for many of the phenomena of the observed world, and Newtonian celestial dynamics is used to determine the orbits of our space vehicles.

This authoritative, modern translation by I. Bernard Cohen and Anne Whitman, the first in more than 285 years, is based on the 1726 edition, the final revised version approved by Newton; it includes extracts from the earlier editions, corrects errors found in earlier versions, and replaces archaic English with contemporary prose and up-to-date mathematical forms.

Newton's principles describe acceleration, deceleration, and inertial movement; fluid dynamics; and the motions of the earth, moon, planets, and comets. A great work in itself, the Principia also revolutionized the methods of scientific investigation. It set forth the fundamental three laws of motion and the law of universal gravity, the physical principles that account for the Copernican system of the world as emended by Kepler, thus effectively ending controversy concerning the Copernican planetary system.

The illuminating Guide to Newton's Principia by I. Bernard Cohen makes this preeminent work truly accessible for today's scientists, scholars, and students.
