EBook Description: Have you ever wondered why the language of modern physics centres on geometry? Or how quantum operators and Dirac brackets work? What a convolution really is? What tensors are all about? Or what field theory and lagrangians are, and why gravity is described as curvature?
This book takes you on a tour of the main ideas forming the language of modern mathematical physics. Here you will meet novel approaches to concepts such as determinants and geometry, wave function evolution, statistics, signal processing, and three-dimensional rotations. You'll see how the accelerated frames of special relativity tell us about gravity. On the journey, you'll discover how tensor notation relates to vector calculus, how differential geometry is built on intuitive concepts, and how variational calculus leads to field theory. You will meet quantum measurement theory, along with Green functions and the art of complex integration, and finally general relativity and cosmology.
The book takes a fresh approach to tensor analysis built solely on the metric and vectors, with no need for one-forms. This gives a much more geometrical and intuitive insight into vector and tensor calculus, together with general relativity, than do traditional, more abstract methods.

Space Exploration 2007 (Springer Praxis Books / Space Exploration) (Repost) Book
Publisher: Springer | ISBN: 0387333304 | edition 2006 | PDF | 170 pages | 14,3 mb
The aim of the Space Exploration - 2007 is to provide an annual update on recent space launches, missions and results, to be published every year in September. The annual will cover space exploration from a variety of angles: looking back at past missions, reviewing those currently under way and looking to those planned for the future. The ten invited contributions each year will cover a variety of topics within these areas, to appeal to a wide readership. The regular set features, which will appear every year, will include records noting satellite and rocket launches in the previous year and satellite recoveries; analysis of developments and emerging trends in space exploration; notes on records and main feats during the year; basic data on all launchers currently in operation; schedules of upcoming missions; anniversaries and landmarks.

Electromagnetic Fields and Life Book
Plenum Press | 1970 | ISBN: 0306303957 | 336 pages | Djvu | 5,4 MB
"This pioneering volume presents a general concept which, if future experiments continue to support it, could be one of the most fundamental and significant contributions of the 20th century. Seldom in recent times does one encounter a new scientific area for exploration with such broad implications and potential applications, so suddenly thrown into the arena for scientific scrutiny, researches, and criticism. Presman's case for his hypothesis is very ably and persuasively set forth. The postulation that normal informational roles are played by these fields for living systems at three levels is systematically developed as logical, plausible consequences and significances of the reported responsiveness of living systems to diverse experimentally applied fields, and characteristics of these responses. The resulting hypothesis is so encompassing that an impact will be felt wherever biological regulation is concerned, and this means everywhere in biology from molecular, through developmental, environmental, and behavioral, and even into the social sciences. All who read this book will thereafter view the world with an increased consciousness of possible interrelations and interpretations through means hitherto considered impossible."

Lagomorph Biology: Evolution, Ecology, and Conservation Book
Publisher: Springer 2007-12-20 | 414 Pages | ISBN: 3540724451 | PDF | 2.8 MB
Lagomorphs are a mammalian order which includes rabbits, hares and pikas. They are distributed throughout the world and are of both scientific and public interest as they are classified between endangered and pest species. In addition, some have a high economic value as important game species. In the last few decades, a huge amount of information was made available to the scientific community and resulted in remarkable advances on all aspects of Lagomorph biology. However, this information is dispersed in multiple scientific and non-scientific journals. This book provides an updated synthesis of the current knowledge on Lagomorph biology.

Four Decades of Scientific Explanation Book
University of Pittsburgh Press | 2006 | ISBN: 0822959267, 0816618259 | 234 pages | PDF | 11,3 MB
As Aristotle stated, scientific explanation is based on deductive argument-yet, Wesley C. Salmon points out, not all deductive arguments are qualified explanations. The validity of the explanation must itself be examined. Four Decades of Scientific Explanation provides a comprehensive account of the developments in scientific explanation that transpired in the last four decades of the twentieth century. It continues to stand as the most comprehensive treatment of the writings on the subject during these years. Building on the historic 1948 essay by Carl G. Hempel and Paul Oppenheim, "Studies in the Logic of Explanation,� which introduced the deductive-nomological (D-N) model on which most work on scientific explanation was based for the following four decades, Salmon goes beyond this model's inherent basis of describing empirical knowledge to tells us �not only what, but also why.� Salmon examines the predominant models in chronological order and describes their development, refinement, and criticism or rejection. Four Decades of Scientific Explanation underscores the need for a consensus of approach and ongoing evaluations of methodology in scientific explanation, with the goal of providing a better understanding of natural phenomena.

Foothold in the Heavens: The Seventies Book
Springer | 2010 | ISBN: 1441963413 | 533 pages | PDF | 40,6 MB
Foothold in the Heavens, the second volume in the A History of Human Space Exploration series, focuses upon the 1970s, the decade in which humanity established real, longterm foothold in the heavens with the construction and operation of the first space stations. It marked a transitional phase between the heady, race-to-the-Moon days of the Sixties and efforts to make space travel more economical, more frequent and more 'routine.' Space exploration in the Seventies, although dominated by Soviet achievement, saw the first efforts of mankind to really 'live' and work in space, producing results of direct benefit to humans on Earth. The emphasis changed from the gung-ho, 'strap-it-on-and-go' pioneers of the Sixties to the more practical exploitation of space for science, medicine, and technology. This book focuses on each mission launched between April 1971 and April 1981: from the launch of the world's first space station to the end of operations of Salyut 6, and from the expanded, lengthy exploration of the Moon on Apollo 15 to the first flight of the Shuttle.

Exploring Space (Discovery and Exploration) Book
Chelsea House Publications | English | 2009-12-30 | ISBN: 1604131888 | 119 pages | PDF | 23 MB
Throughout history, people have tried to understand Earth's place in the universe and what else, if anything, is 'out there'. This common human curiosity has led to great discoveries, from astrologers in ancient Babylon and Egypt who sought to link the strange planetary paths through the night sky to human behavior, to the 17th century when Galileo turned his first telescope on the night sky, to the 21st century when robotic explorers landed on Mars. "Exploring Space, Revised Edition" offers extensive coverage of human explorations into space - from 19th-century fantasy to 20th-century achievement and the future of space exploration in the 21st century - giving up-to-date information about the current state of exploration in the final frontier. Coverage of this title includes: native American astronomy; the U.S.-Soviet 'race to the moon' in the 1960s; how astronomers began to realize that Earth was only one of several planets; the challenges NASA has faced, such as the explosions of the Challenger and the Columbia Development of space stations; and, an examination of the future of space exploration.
