  • Plotting the Globeby AVRAHAM ARIEL; NORA ARIEL BERGER; JOHN WRIGHT

    ABC-CLIO 2005; US$ 73.00

    People use concepts such as time and date to structure their lives on a daily basis. They often measure their travel by marking points arranged along great circles on the globe. Yet most do not understand the origin and history of these terms and the stories of the intrepid adventurers, scientists, and seafarers who shaped our picture of the world... more...

  • Solving Algebraic Computational Problems in Geodesy and Geoinformaticsby Joseph L. Awange; Erik W. Grafarend

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2005; US$ 159.00

    The book presents modern and efficient methods for solving Geodetic and Geoinformatics algebraic problems using computer algebra techniques of Ring, polynomials, Groebner basis, resultants, Gauss-Jacobi combinatorial and Procrustes algorithms. Although these problems are traditionally solved by approximate methods, this book presents alternative algebraic... more...

These problems are traditionally... more...

  • Vite matematicheby C. Bartocci; R. Betti; A. Guerraggio; R. Lucchetti

    Springer 2007; US$ 19.95

    Lo scibile matematico si espande a un ritmo vertiginoso. Nel corso degli ultimi cinquant'anni sono stati dimostrati piů teoremi che nei precedenti millenni della storia umana. Per illustrare la ricchezza della matematica del Novecento, il presente volume porta sulla ribalta alcuni dei protagonisti di questa straordinaria impresa intellettuale, che... more...

  • Minding the Heavensby Leila Belkora

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 52.95

    Today, we accept that we live on a planet circling the sun, that our sun is just one of billions of stars in the galaxy we call the Milky Way, and that our galaxy is but one of billions born out of the big bang. Yet as recently as the early twentieth century, the general public and even astronomers had vague and confused notions about what lay beyond... more...

  • Mathematical Foundation of Geodesyby Kai Borre

    Springer 2006; US$ 259.00

    Contains selected papers by Torben Krarup, one of the most important geodesists of the 20th century. This book demonstrates his innovative ability to present significant topics and concepts. It is suitable for modern students of geodesy, who can learn a lot from his selection of mathematical tools for solving actual problems. more...

  • A Tenth of a Secondby Jimena Canales

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 25.00

    In the late fifteenth century, clocks acquired minute hands. A century later, second hands appeared. But it wasn’t until the 1850s that instruments could recognize a tenth of a second, and, once they did, the impact on modern science and society was profound. Revealing the history behind this infinitesimal interval, A Tenth of a Second sheds... more...

  • Geodetic and Geophysical Observations in Antarcticaby Alessandro Capra; Reinhard Dietrich

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    Due to their unique geophysical and geodynamic environment, both the Arctic and Antarctic polar regions are often utilized for geodetic and geophysical observations. This book is a collection of papers on various aspects of the scientific investigation and observation techniques of the polar regions at both temporary and permanent observatories. Most... more...

  • Cleomedes' Lectures On Astronomyby Cleomedes; Alan C. Bowen; Robert B. Todd

    University of California Press 2004; US$ 15.95

    At some time around 200 A.D., the Stoic philosopher and teacher Cleomedes delivered a set of lectures on elementary astronomy as part of a complete introduction to Stoicism for his students. The result was The Heavens (Caelestia), the only work by a professional Stoic teacher to survive intact from the first two centuries A. more...

  • Data Processing in Precise Time and Frequency Applicationsby Michel Desaintfuscien

    Springer 2007; US$ 259.00

    Physical processes, involving atomic phenomena, allow more and more precise time and frequency measurements. This progress is not possible without convenient processing of the respective raw data. The book describes the data processing at various levels: design of the time and frequency references, characterization of the time and frequency references,... more...
