From Zero to Ten
Vivian French
0195219252
Dec 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The whimsical toucans, chickens, owl, and penguin from Write Around the World return, bumbling and tumbling around the world and through time, discovering where numbers came from. From the first counting machine (fingers), pebble markers (or calculus in Latin), and Incan knot-tying to the
development of our modern counting system originating in India in 776 C.E. (which took suspicious Europeans 500 years to adopt!), From Zero to Ten is an entertaining and easy-to-understand introduction to the only truly universal language in the world -- numbers -- and related concepts such as
trade, money, measurement, time, and even lucky numbers.


Python Scripting for Computational Science (Texts in Computational Science and Engineering)
Hans P. Langtangen
3540435085
September 20, 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The goal of this book is to teach computational scientists and engineers how to develop tailored, flexible, and efficient working environments built from small programs (scripts) written in the easy-to-learn, very high-level language Python. The focus is on examples and applications of relevance to computational science: gluing existing applications and tools, e.g. for automating simulation, data analysis, and visualization; steering simulations and computational experiments; equipping programs with graphical user interfaces; making computational Web services; creating interactive interfaces with a Maple/Matlab-like syntax to numerical applications in C/C++ or Fortran; and building flexible object-oriented programming interfaces to existing C/C++ or Fortran libraries. In short, scripting with Python makes...


Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea
Charles Seife
0140296476
September 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The seemingly impossible Zen task--writing a book about nothing--has a loophole: people have been chatting, learning, and even fighting about nothing for millennia. Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea, by noted science writer Charles Seife, starts with the story of a modern battleship stopped dead in the water by a loose zero, then rewinds back to several hundred years BCE. Some empty-headed genius improved the traditional Eastern counting methods immeasurably by adding zero as a placeholder, which allowed the genesis of our still-used decimal system. It's all been uphill from there, but Seife is enthusiastic about his subject; his synthesis of math, history, and anthropology seduces the reader into a new fascination with the most troubling number.

Why did the Church reject the use of zero? How did mystics of all...



Data Structures and Algorithms Using Visual Basic.NET
Michael McMillan
0521547652
March 7, 2005
Paperback
·
 
Review
“Choosing which data structure and sorting algorithms to use can have a great effect on the speed of the program. This book helps programmers make those choices. This book begins with an introduction to properties and classes in VB.NET. It also describes the creation of a timing test in the VB.NET environment, which is used repeatedly in later chapters to demonstrate how different structures and searching techniques can change program completion time. This little bit of code is the prize inside, since it can be used whenever timing of VB.NET programming is needed...[This book] thoroughly covers the basics, and some more advanced topics of data structures and searching algorithms, using VB.NET with a minimalist approach.”

Integrable Systems
N. J. Hitchin
0198504217
May 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This textbook for graduate students introduces integrable systems through the study of Riemann surfaces, loop groups, and twistors. The introduction by Nigel Hitchin addresses the meaning of integrability, discussing in particular how to recognize an integrable system. He then develops
connections between integrable systems and algebraic geometry and introduces Riemann surfaces, sheaves, and line bundles. In the next part, Graeme Segal takes the Korteweg-de Vries and nonlinear Schrodinger equations as central examples and discusses the mathematical structures underlying the
inverse scattering transform. He also explains loop groups, the Grassmannian, and algebraic curves. In the final part of the book, Richard Ward explores the connection between integrability and self-dual Yang-Mills equations and then...

Random Number Generation and Monte Carlo Methods
James E. Gentle
0387001786
Jan 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Monte Carlo simulation has become one of the most important tools in all fields of science. Simulation methodology relies on a good source of numbers that appear to be random. These "pseudorandom" numbers must pass statistical tests just as random samples would. Methods for producing pseudorandom numbers and transforming those numbers to simulate samples from various distributions are among the most important topics in statistical computing. This book surveys techniques of random number generation and the use of random numbers in Monte Carlo simulation. The book covers basic principles, as well as newer methods such as parallel random number generation, nonlinear congruential generators, quasi Monte Carlo methods, and Markov chain Monte Carlo. The best methods for generating random variates from the standard...


Leadership and Sustainability: System Thinkers in Action
Michael Fullan
141290496X
July 2004
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Review
Richard Ackerman, Associate Professor, Educational Leadership : "Leadership & Sustainability extends and amplifies Fullan's thinking in very powerful and practical ways, by developing a topic that hasn’t seen this kind of elegant, integrative, and comprehensive treatment before. It uses real-world examples and research literature to tackle, head on, the question of sustainability--how organizations move into the future and endure over time, as well as the equally challenging question: what about an organization is worth sustaining long term? Folks who have followed Michael Fullan's work over many years will like this book very much."

Book Description
In the last few years there has been significant progress in the development of microfluidics and nanofluidics at the application as well as at the fundamental and simulation levels. This book provides a comprehensive summary of these changes describing fluid flow in micro and nano configurations. Where as in their previous book entitled Microflows: Fundamentals and Simulation the authors covered scales from one hundred nanometers to microns (and beyond), in this new book they discuss length scales from angstroms to microns (and beyond). While still maintaining the emphasis on fundamental concepts with a mix of semianalytical, experimental, and numerical results, this book outlines their relevance to modeling and analyzing functional devices.

Death and Justice: An Expose of Oklahoma's Death Row Machine
Mark Fuhrman
0641651260

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Retired LAPD detective and bestselling author Mark Fuhrman seeks to answer these questions by investigating the death penalty in Oklahoma - a place where a "hang 'em high" attitude of cowboy justice resulted in twenty-one executions in 2001, more than in any other state in the nation. The majority of these death penalty cases came from one jurisdiction, Oklahoma County, where legendary district attorney Bob Macy bragged about sending more people to death row than any other prosecutor, and where police chemist Joyce Gilchrist was eventually fired for mismanaging the crime lab. Examining police records, trial transcripts, and appellate decisions, and conducting hundreds of interviews, Fuhrman focuses his considerable investigative skills on more than a dozen of the most controversial Oklahoma death penalty cases,...
