Lowest used price: $3.54
List price: $15.95
Author: Chris Dixon

Rising from the depths of the Pacific lies a fabled island, now submerged just below the surface of the ocean. Rumors and warnings about Cortes Bank abound, but among big wave surfers, this legendary rock is famous for one simple (and massive) reason: this is the home of the biggest rideable wave on the face of the earth. In this dramatic work of narrative non-fiction, journalist Chris Dixon unlocks the secrets of Cortes Bank and pulls readers into the harrowing world of big wave surfing and high seas adventure above the most enigmatic and dangerous rock in the sea. The true story of this Everest of the sea will thrill anyone with an abiding curiosity of—and respect for—mother ocean.

How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog

How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog Lowest new price: $10.57
Lowest used price: $2.81
List price: $17.99
Author: Chad Orzel
Brand: Basic Books AZ

They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks. But what about relativity?

Physics professor Chad Orzel and his inquisitive canine companion, Emmy, tackle the concepts of general relativity in this irresistible introduction to Einstein's physics. Through armchair-and sometimes passenger-seat-conversations with Emmy about the relative speeds of dog and cat motion or the logistics of squirrel-chasing, Orzel translates complex Einsteinian ideas-the slowing of time for a moving observer, the shrinking of moving objects, the effects of gravity on light and time, black holes, the Big Bang, and of course, E=mc2-into examples simple enough for a dog to understand.
A lively romp through one of the great theories of modern physics, How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about space, time, and anything else you might have slept through in high school physics class.

Reviews the fundamental concepts behind the theory and computation of electromagnetic fields

The book is divided in two parts. The first part covers both fundamental theories (such as vector analysis, Maxwell’s equations, boundary condition, and transmission line theory) and advanced topics (such as wave transformation, addition theorems, and fields in layered media) in order to benefit students at all levels. The second part of the book covers the major computational methods for numerical analysis of electromagnetic fields for engineering applications. These methods include the three fundamental approaches for numerical analysis of electromagnetic fields: the finite difference method (the finite difference time-domain method in particular), the finite element method, and the integral equation-based moment method. The second part also examines fast algorithms for solving integral equations and hybrid techniques that combine different numerical methods to seek more efficient solutions of complicated electromagnetic problems.

Theory and Computation of Electromagnetic Fields, Second Edition: 

  • Provides the foundation necessary for graduate students to learn and understand more advanced topics
  • Discusses electromagnetic analysis in rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinates
  • Covers computational electromagnetics in both frequency and time domains
  • Includes new and updated homework problems and examples
Theory and Computation of Electromagnetic Fields, Second Edition is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate level electrical engineering students. This book can also be used as a reference for professional engineers interested in learning about analysis and computation skills.

Grand Unified Thereom

Grand Unified Thereom Lowest used price: $599.00
List price: $130.00
Author: Gabriel A. Oyibo

Oyibo (mathematics, of APPIT Institute of Technology) presents a general theorem providing a mathematical basis for a Grand Unified Field Theory, and shows that the proof of the theorem is the recent work Generalized Mathematical Proof of Einstein's Theory Using a New Group Theory. He suggests that the solution mathematically represents the modification of space-time predicted by Einstein's general relativity theory. He also investigates some hydrodynamic examples of subsets of the general universal conservation equations.
