#### Impossible?

Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 21.95In Nonplussed! , popular-math writer Julian Havil delighted readers with a mind-boggling array of implausible yet true mathematical paradoxes. Now Havil is back with Impossible? , another marvelous medley of the utterly confusing, profound, and unbelievable--and all of it mathematically irrefutable. Whenever Forty-second Street in New York is... more...

#### Advances in Chemical Physics, Volume 8

Wiley 2009; US$ 188.00The Advances in Chemical Physics series provides the chemical physics and physical chemistry fields with a forum for critical, authoritative evaluations of advances in every area of the discipline. Filled with cutting-edge research reported in a cohesive manner not found elsewhere in the literature, each volume of the Advances in Chemical Physics... more...

#### Philosophy of Mathematics

Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 210.00One of the most striking features of mathematics is the fact that we are much more certain about the mathematical knowledge we have than about what mathematical knowledge is knowledge of. Are numbers, sets, functions and groups physical entities of some kind? Are they objectively existing objects in some non-physical, mathematical realm? Are they ideas... more...

#### Nonlinear Wave Dynamics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 95.00In September 2006, research leaders in the field of coastal engineering, fluid mechanics, and wave theory met at Cornell University to celebrate the 60th birthday of Prof. Philip L-F Liu. This volume is a compilation of the research papers presented at the symposium, and includes both review and new research papers. Topics such as nonlinear wave theory,... more...

#### The Dawn of Fluid Dynamics

Wiley 2007; US$ 119.00This is the first publication to describe the evolution of fluid dynamics as a major field in modern science and engineering. It contains a description of the interaction between applied research and application, taking as its example the history of fluid mechanics in the 20th century. The focus lies on the work of Ludwig Prandtl, founder of the aerodynamic... more...

#### Gasdynamic Aspects of Two-Phase Flow

Wiley 2006; US$ 244.00Here, the author, a researcher of outstanding experience in this field, summarizes and combines the recent results and findings on advanced two-phase flow modeling and numerical methods otherwise dispersed in various journals, while also providing explanations for numerical and modeling techniques previously not covered by other books. The resulting... more...

#### Conditional and Preferential Logics: Proof Methods and Theorem Proving

IOS Press 2010; US$ 114.00This volume contains a revised and updated version of the author?s Ph.D. dissertation, and is focused on proof methods and theorem proving for Conditional and Preferential logics. Conditional logics are extensions of classical logic by means of a conditional operator, usually denoted as =>. Conditional logics have a long history, and recently they... more...

#### An Informal Conceptual Introduction to Turbulence

Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 189.00This book is a second completely revised edition of "An Informal Introduction to Turbulence". The main emphasis is on conceptual and problematic aspects, physical phenomena, observations, misconceptions and unresolved issues rather than on conventional formalistic aspects, models, etc. Apart from the obvious fundamental importance of turbulent... more...

#### Nonplussed!

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 16.95Math--the application of reasonable logic to reasonable assumptions--usually produces reasonable results. But sometimes math generates astonishing paradoxes--conclusions that seem completely unreasonable or just plain impossible but that are nevertheless demonstrably true. Did you know that a losing sports team can become a winning one by adding worse... more...

#### Statistical Theory and Modeling for Turbulent Flows

Wiley 2011; US$ 123.00Providing a comprehensive grounding in the subject of turbulence, Statistical Theory and Modeling for Turbulent Flows develops both the physical insight and the mathematical framework needed to understand turbulent flow. Its scope enables the reader to become a knowledgeable user of turbulence models; it develops analytical tools for developers of... more...
