  • Symmetry and the Beautiful Universeby Leon M. Lederman; Christopher T. Hill

    Prometheus Books 2011; US$ 11.99

    When scientists peer through a telescope at the distant stars in outer space or use a particle-accelerator to analyze the smallest components of matter, they discover that the same laws of physics govern the whole universe at all times and all places. Physicists call the eternal, ubiquitous constancy of the laws of physics symmetry. Symmetry is the... more...

  • Linkedby Albert-laszlo Barabasi; Jennifer Frangos

    Basic Books 2002; US$ 16.00

  • Dynamical Chaosby Michael V. Berry; Ian C. Percival; Nigel Oscar Weiss

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 33.50

    The leading scientists who gave these papers under the sponsorship of the Royal Society in early 1987 provide reviews of facets of the subject of chaos ranging from the practical aspects of mirror machines for fusion power to the pure mathematics of geodesics on surfaces of negative curvature. The papers deal with systems in which chaotic conditions... more...

  • Simplexityby Jeffrey Kluger

    Hyperion 2008; Not Available

    Why are the instruction manuals for cell phones incomprehensible? Why is a truck driver's job as hard as a CEO's? How can 10 percent of every medical dollar cure 90 percent of the world's disease? Why do bad teams win so many games? Complexity, as any scientist will tell you, is a slippery idea. Things that seem complicated can be astoundingly... more...

  • Synchronization in Oscillatory Networksby Grigory V. Osipov; Jürgen Kurths; Changsong Zhou

    Springer 2007; US$ 109.00

    This work systematically investigates a large number of oscillatory network configurations that are able to describe many real systems such as electric power grids, lasers or even the heart muscle, to name but a few. The book is conceived as an introduction to the field for graduate students in physics and applied mathematics as well as being a compendium... more...

  • Branchesby Philip Ball

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 21.99

    As part of a trilogy of books exploring the science of patterns in nature, acclaimed science writer Philip Ball here looks at the form and growth of branching networks in the natural world, and what we can learn from them.Many patterns in nature show a branching form - trees, river deltas, blood vessels, lightning, the cracks that form in the glazing... more...

  • Flowby Philip Ball

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 17.99

    From the swirl of a wisp of smoke to eddies in rivers, and the huge persistent storm system that is the Great Spot on Jupiter, we see similar forms and patterns wherever there is flow - whether the movement of wind, water, sand, or flocks of birds. It is the complex dynamics of flow that structures our atmosphere, land, and oceans.Part of a trilogy... more...
