"It's very useful to have a unified overview of what we know, collected and recounted in one place. The Cosmic Machine will introduce you to the basic principles by which today's physicists organize the world." -Sean Carroll, author of The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself
"A superb resource for science fans or those struggling to understand the subject; an impressive fit in an age of Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson web videos." -Kirkus Reviews
"The Cosmic Machine succeeds on all accounts." -Midwest Book Review
Energy, Entropy, Atoms, and Quantum Mechanics form the very foundation of our universe. But how do they govern the world we live in? What was the difficult path to their discovery? Who were the key players that struggled to shape our current understanding?
The Cosmic Machine takes you from the earliest scientific inquiries in human history on an exciting journey in search of the answers to these questions. In telling this fascinating story of science, the reader is masterfully guided through the wonderment of how scientific discoveries (and the key players of those discoveries) shaped the world as we know it today.
With its unique blend of science, history, and biographies, The Cosmic Machine provides an easily accessible account without sacrificing the actual science itself. Not only will this book engage, enlighten, and entertain you, it will inspire your passion and curiosity for the world around us.
|Polymer Physics (Chemistry)
Lowest new price: $80.95
Lowest used price: $52.21
List price: $89.95
Author: M. Rubinstein
Brand: Oxford University Press USA
Polymer Physics thoroughly details the fundamental concepts of polymer melts, solutions, and gels in terms of both static structure and dynamics. It goes beyond other introductory polymer texts, deriving the essential tools of the physical polymer chemist or engineer without skipping any steps.
The book is divided into four parts. Part One summarizes the necessary concepts of a first course on polymers and covers the conformations of single polymer chains. Part Two deals with the thermodynamics of polymer solutions and melts, including chain conformations in those states. Part Three applies the concepts of Part Two to the formation and properties of polymer networks. Part Four explains the essential aspects of how polymers move in both melt and solution states.
The text assumes a working knowledge of calculus, physics, and chemistry, but no prior knowledge of polymers. It is ideal for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in Condensed Matter Physics, Soft Materials, and Polymers.
·Presents established results in an easily accessible way
·Emphasizes physical insight rather than mathematical rigor
·Provides detailed experimental sections at the end of each chapter
·Includes more than 200 illustrations and 350 exercises

|Rainbow And The Worm, The: The Physics Of Organisms (3Rd Edition)
Lowest new price: $30.52
Lowest used price: $29.53
List price: $34.00
Author: Mae Wan Ho
Brand: Ho Mae Wan Mae Wan Ho
This highly unusual book began as a serious inquiry into Schrödinger,s question, "What is life? ", and as a celebration of life itself. It takes the reader on a voyage of discovery through many areas of contemporary physics, from non-equilibrium thermodynamics and quantum optics to liquid crystals and fractals, all necessary for illuminating the problem of life. In the process, the reader is treated to a rare and exquisite view of the organism, gaining novel insights not only into the physics, but also into "the poetry and meaning of being alive." This much-enlarged third edition includes new findings on the central role of biological water in organizing living processes; it also completes the author's novel theory of the organism and its applications in ecology, physiology and brain science.

|SUMMARY Brief Answers to the Big Questions by Stephen Hawking: A Summary, Analysis and Guide
Lowest new price: $6.99
List price: $6.99
Author: Dr. Gab Reagan
GET INTO THE MIND OF STEPHEN HAWKING!
TRAVEL ACROSS THE UNIVERSE WITH HIM
VISIT A BLACK HOLE WITH HIM AND GET OUT IN ONE PIECE!
HEAR HIS SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL OPINIONS!
This is a Summary, Analysis, and Guide to the controversial book, “Brief Answers to the Big Questions”, by the world-famous astrophysicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking. In that book, Hawking finally answers some of the big questions that people from all over the world have been asking him throughout his career. Such questions include the following: Is there a God? How did it all begin? Is there other intelligent life in the universe? Can we predict the future? What is inside a black hole? Is time travel possible? Will we survive on Earth? Should we colonize space? Will artificial intelligence outsmart us? And how do we shape the future? To each of these questions, Hawking dedicates a chapter in which he authoritatively and frankly addresses the question in detail, laying his deep knowledge and controversial personal opinions and predictions all on the table.
This Summary is well-researched, well-written, and does a wonderful job of making the concepts, principles, and theories in the main book so easy to understand. All the main points in the original book (KEY TAKEAWAYS) are carefully extracted and presented to you in this Summary so you do not have to wade through tons of theories to get to them. Next, each chapter is summarized (CHAPTER SUMMARY) for you so you are presented only with the essence of the chapter. In fact, there is no important point, message, or theme in the main book that has been ignored in this Summary.
But note that this Summary is meant to be a companion, not a replacement, to the original book. So read this Summary BEFORE OR AFTER reading the original book itself. This will help you to understand the main book better, and connect your understanding to certain events and phenomena that are happening around you. Also, all of Hawking’s controversial opinions are laid bare in this Summary. See them in all their nakedness. You may or may not agree with one or some or even all of Hawking’s controversial opinions. But they are here, Read them. Think about them. And reach your own conclusions. This Summary is probably the best Summary of “Brief Answers to the Big Questions”, by Stephen Hawking. Do not miss it. BUY THIS SUMMARY NOW!

Author: Walter A. Harrison
"Should be widely read by practicing physicists, chemists and materials scientists." — Philosophical Magazine
In this comprehensive and innovative text, Professor Harrison (Stanford University) offers a basic understanding of the electronic structure of covalent and ionic solids, simple metals, transition metals, and their compounds. The book illuminates the relationships of the electronic structures of these materials and shows how to calculate dielectric, conducting, and bonding properties for each. Also described are various methods of approximating electronic structure, providing insight and even quantitative results from the comparisons. Dr. Harrison has also included an especially helpful "Solid State Table of the Elements" that provides all the parameters needed to estimate almost any property of any solid, with a hand-held calculator, using the techniques developed in the book.
Designed for graduate or advanced undergraduate students who have completed an undergraduate course in quantum mechanics or atomic and modern physics, the text treats the relation between structure and properties comprehensively for all solids rather than for small classes of solids. This makes it an indispensable reference for all who make use of approximative methods for electronic-structure engineering, semiconductor development and materials science.
The problems at the ends of the chapters are an important aspect of the book. They clearly show that the calculations for systems and properties of genuine and current interest are actually quite elementary. Prefaces. Problems. Tables. Appendixes. Solid State Table of the Elements. Bibliography. Author and Subject Indexes.
