Title:Celestial Sleuth [electronic resource] : Using Astronomy to Solve Mysteries in Art, History and Literature
Author(s): Donald W Olson
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Many mysteries in art, history, and literature can be solved using forensic astronomy, including calculating phases of the Moon, determining the positions of the planets and stars, and identifying celestial objects. Inaddition to helping to crack dif ficult cases, such studies spark our imagination and provide a better understanding of the skies. Weather facts, volcanic studies, topography, tides, historical letters and diaries, military records andthe friendly assistance of experts in related fields help with the work. Topics or cases pursued were chosen for their wide public recognition and intrigue and involve artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet historicalevents such as the Battle of Marathon, Julius Caesar's invasion of Britain, and World War II and literary authors such as Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Mary Shelley. For each historical event influenced by astronomy, there is adifferent kind of mystery to be solved. For example, how can the Moon help to explain the sinking of the Titan ic and a turning point of the American Civil War? For each literary reference to astronomy, which celestial objects werebeing described and was the author describing an actual event? Follow these exciting investigations with Donald Olson, a master celest ial sleuth, as he tracks down the truth and helps unravel mysteries as far back as ancienthistory and as recent as the haunting paintings of Edvard Munch

Title:Exploring Science Through Science Fiction [electronic resource]
Author(s): Barry B Luokkala
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:How does Einsteins description of space and time compare with Dr. Who? Can James Bond really escape from an armor-plated railroad car by cutting through the floor with a laser concealed in a wristwatch? What would it take tocreate a fully-intelligent android, such as Star Treks Commander Data? How might we discover intelligent civilizations on other planets in the galaxy? Is human teleportation possible? Will our technological society ever reach thepoint at which it becomes lawful to discriminate on the basis of genetic information, as in the movie GATTACA? Exploring Science Through Science Fiction addresses these and other interesting questions, using science fiction as aspringboard for discussing fundamental science concepts and cutting-edge scienc e research. The book is designed as a primary text for a college-level course which should appeal to students in the fine arts and humanities as well as toscience and engineering students. It includes references to original research papers, landmark scien tific publications and technical documents, as well as a broad range of science literature at a more popular level.

Title:Mathematics and Modern Art [electronic resource] : Proceedings of the First ESMA Conference, held in Paris, July 19-22, 2010

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The link between mathematics and art remains as strong today as it was in the earliest instances of decorative and ritual art. Arts, architecture, music and painting have for a long time been sources of new developments inmathematics, and vice versa. Many great painters have seen no contradiction between artistic and mathematical endeavors, contributing to the progress of both, using mathematical principles to guide their visual creativity, enrichingtheir visual environment with the new objects creat ed by the mathematical science. Owing to the recent development of the so nice techniques for visualization, while mathematicians can better explore these new mathematical objects,artists can use them to emphasize their intrinsic beauty, and create quite new sceneries. This volume, the content of the first conference of the European Society for Mathematics and the Arts (ESMA), held in Paris in 2010, gives anoverview on some significant and beautiful recent works where maths and art, including architecture and music, are interwoven. The book includes a wealth of mathematical illustrations from several basic mathematical fields includingclassical geometry, topology, differential geometry, dynamical systems. Here, artists and mathematicians alike elucidate t he thought processes and the tools used to create their work

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Winner of the 1983National Book Award, The Mathematical Experience presented a highlyinsightful overview of mathematics that effectively conveyed its power and beauty to a largeaudience of mathematicians andnon-mathematicians alike. The study edition of the work followed about a decade later, supplementing the original material of the book with exercises to provide a self-contained treatment usable for the classroom. This softcoverversion reproduces the study edition andincludes epilogues by the thre e original authors to reflect on the book's content 15 years after its publication, and to demonstrate its continued applicability to the classroom.Moreover,The Companion Guide to the Mathematical Experienceoriginally published and sold separatelyis freel y available online to instructors who use the work, further enhancingits pedagogicalvalue and making itanexceptionally usefuland accessible resource for a wide range oflower-level courses inmathematics and mathematics education. A wealth of customizable o nline course materials for the bookcan be obtainedfrom Elena AnneMarchisotto (elena.marchisotto@csun.edu) upon request. Reviews [The authors] have tried to provide a book usable in a course for liberal arts students and for future secondary teachers. They have done much more!

Title:Einstein and the Changing Worldviews of Physics [electronic resource]

Jrgen Renn

Date:2012
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume reviews conceptual conflicts at the foundations of physics now and in the past century. The focus is on the conditions and consequences of Einsteins pathbreaking achievements that sealed the decline of theclassical notions of space, time, radiation, and matter, and resulted in the theory of relativity. Particular attention is paid to the implications of conceptual conflicts for scientific views of the world at large, thus providingthe basis for a comparison of the demise of the mechanical worldview at the turn of the 20th century with the challenges presented by cosmology at the turn of the 21st century. Throughout the work, Einsteins contributions are notseen in isolation but instead set into the wider intellectual context of dealing wit h the problem of gravitation in the twilight of classical physics the investigation of the historical development is carried out with a number ofepistemological questions in mind, concerning, in particular, the transformation process of knowledge associat ed with the changing worldviews of physics. Einstein and the Changing Worldviews of Physics is divided into four main parts:* Part I: At the Limits of the Classical Worldview * Part II: Contexts of the Relativity Revolution * Part III: The Emergence of th e Relativistic Worldview * Part IV: A New Worldview in the Making. The contributions explore variousaspects of the emerging relativistic views in modern physics by giving an historical, philosophical, and mathematical account of Einsteins work, as well as the work of other distinguished physicists in the field. Taken as a whole,the book is focused on the interplay between mathematical concepts and physical ideas throughout history by studying todays scientific world and how it continues to redefine physic s in the 21st century.

Title:Risk and Meaning [electronic resource] : Adversaries in Art, Science and Philosophy
Author(s): Nicolas Bouleau
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This richly illustrated book is an exploration of how chance and risk, on the one hand, and meaning or significance on the other, compete for the limelight in art, in philosophy, and in science. In modern society, prudence andprobability calculation permeate our daily lives. Yet it is clear for all to see that neither cautious bank regulations nor mathematics have prevented economic crises from occurring time and again. Nicolas Bouleau argues that it is themeaning we assign to an event that determine s the perceived risk, and that we generally turn a blind eye to this important fact, because the word meaning is itself awkward to explain. He tackles this fundamental question throughexamples taken from cultural fields ranging from painting, architecture , and music, to poetry, biology, and astronomy. This enables the reader to view overwhelming risks in a different light. Bouleau clarifies that the most importantthing in a time of uncertainty is to think of prudence on a higher level, one that truly addr esses the various subjective interpretations of the world

Title:Crossroads: History of Science, History of Art [electronic resource] : Essays by David Speiser, vol. II
Author(s): Kim Williams
Date:2011
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:

This collection of essays on relationships between science, history of science, history of art and philosophy is a multi-faceted sequel to the first volume, Discovering the Principles of Mechanics 1600-1800, publishedin 2008. During his car eer, David Speiser was first and foremost a theoretical physicist with first-hand knowledge of how fundamental research is carried out, but he was also a historian of science and editor of historical writings aswell as a keen observer of works of art and architecture. In these essays he compares and contrasts artistic creations with scientific discoveries, the work of the artist and that ofthe scientist, and process of analysis of the arthistorian to that of the historian of science. What is revealed is h ow the limits of individual disciplines can be pushed and sometimes completely overcome as the result of input from and interactions with other fields, and howprogress may even be impossible without such interactions. The reflections elucidated here refut e the idea, so engrained in our thinking today, of the two cultures, and underline the unity rather than the diversity inherent increative thought both scientific and artistic. Contained here are ten papers, all newly edited with updated references, four of which have been translated into English for the first time, and completed with an index of names. Intendedfor the specialist and non-specialist alike, these essays set before us a feast of ideas.

Note:When a dissertation gets completed, the normal rule is that it is never read. By anyone.David H. Levys dissertation - The Sky in Early Modern English Literature: A Study of Allusions to Celestial Events in Elizabethanand Jacobean Writing, 1572-1620 - is different. It opens a whole new interdisciplinary field, which involves the beautiful relationship between the night sky and the works of the early modern period of English Literature. Althoughthe sky enters into much of literature through the ages, t he period involving William Shakespeare and his colleagues is particularly rich. When Shakespeare was about 8 years old, his father probably took himoutside his Stratford home into their northward-facing back yard. There, father and son gazed upon the fi rst great new star visible in the past 500 years, shining forth as brightly as Venus, and even visible in daylight. This newstar, which we now know as a supernova, completely unhinged old ideas about the cosmos. Combined with a parade of bright comets, a second bright new star in 1604, and a series of eclipses, people began to look at the sky moreseriously. In this book, Levy explores how the sky of that period was reflected in its literature. Levys ultimate goal in this book is to inspire his readers to do the same thing as their ancestors did solong agolook at the sky and appreciate how those long-gone authors read the sky

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Over the last four decades there has been extensive development in the theory of dynamical systems. This book starts from the phenomenological point of view reviewing examples. Hence the authors discuss oscillators, like thependulum in many variation including damping and periodic forcing , the Van der Pol System, the Henon and Logistic families, the Newton algorithm seen as a dynamical system and the Lorenz and Rossler system are also discussed. Thephenomena concern equilibrium, periodic, multi- or quasi-periodic and chaotic dynamic dynamics as these occur in all kinds of modeling and are met both in computer simulations and in experiments. The application areas vary fromcelestial mechanics and economical evolutions to population dynamics and climat e variability. The book is aimed at a broad audience of students and researchers. The first four chapters have been used for an undergraduate course inDynamical Systems and material from the last two chapters and from the appendices has been used for mast er and PhD courses by the authors. All chapters conclude with an exercise section. One of the challenges is to help appliedresearchers acquire background for a better understanding of the data that computer simulation or experiment may provide them with t he development of the theory. Henk Broer and Floris Takens, professors at the Institute for Mathematicsand Computer Science of the University of Groningen, are leaders in the field of dynamical systems. They have published a wealth of scientific papers an d books in this area and both authors are members of the Royal Netherlands Academyof Arts and Sciences (KNAW)

Note:Il colonnello Yorke (John Wayne) torna da una missione contro gli Apache (alla frontiera tra USA e Messico) e incontra il generale inviato a parlare con lui. Mi dispiace Kirby, vostro figlio bocciato in matematica a West Point,lo hanno allontanato da llAccademia Militare. Dialogo delle scene iniziali del film Rio Grande di John Ford, 1950. Morale: neppure nei territori di frontiera in lotta con gli Apache si possono trascurare gli studi di matematica! Dicinema, ma anche di letteratura, del grande amor e di Stendhal per la matematica, si parla. E della geometria visionaria dei vestiti di Capucci, dei legami con larte contemporanea e i numeri. Con un omaggio a quella singolare figuradi intellettuale che fu Pavel Florensky, prete ortodosso, matematico, fo ndatore della scuola di Design di Mosca con Kandinsky. Riflessioni sul tema di matematica e religione, di cui molto si parla a sproposito. E poi musica e di danza,delle dune del deserto e della ricostruzione virtuale di affreschi del Mantegna distrutti du rante la seconda guerra mondiale a Padova. Per finire con i grandi effetti speciale del cinema, da King Kong al Signore degli anelli, fino alrecentissimo Avatar in cui ha lavorato il matematico Luca Fascione. Tanti temi, un grande legame culturale: la mat ematica. Perch della matematica non si pu fare a meno!

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Gsta Mittag-Leffler (18461927) played a significant role on the world stage as both a scientist and entrepreneur. Regarded as the father of Swedish mathematics, his influence extended far beyond his chosen field because ofhis extensive network of int ernational contacts in science, business, and the arts. His social and professional circles included such luminaries as Selma Lagerlf, Albert Einstein, Sonya Kovalevsky, Alfred Nobel, Karl Weierstrass,Henri Poincar, and Marie Curie. (He was instrumental i n seeing to it that the latter was awarded the Nobel Prize, not once but twice.) One of Mittag-Lefflers major accomplishments was the founding of the journal Acta Mathematicain 1882. Today the journal is still published by Institut Mittag-Leffler and Swed ens Royal Academy of Sciences, and it continues to be one of the most prestigious journals in mathematics. Arild Stubhaugs research for thismonumental biography of the Swedish mathematician relied on a wealth of primary and secondary resources, including more than 30000 letters that are part of the Mittag-Leffler archives. Written in a lucid and compelling manner, thebiography contains many hitherto unknown facts about Mittag-Lefflers personal life and professional endeavors. It will be of great interest to both mathematicians and general readers interested in science and culture

Note:We grasp and transform the world through interplays of quantification and qualification. The cross pollination of geometric and literary figures is deeply embedded in our cognitive habits, instruments of inquiry and theconstructed environment. Throug h time, thought has reflected on the visible processes and products of material craft to explain and train the invisible workings of the mind. Recursively, material craft embodies a tradition of splittingideas into categorical parts and compositional unit s for reassembly. Although the mathematical and verbal arts are often placed in contrast, human inventions manifest a weave of alphanumerics. Mythic parables, geometric proofs, memoryarts, poems, algorithms, buildings and cities emerge from the intercours e of measure and explication.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Leon Battista Alberti (14041472) was a highly prolific polymath of the fifteenth century. Although his contributions to architecture and the visual arts are well known and available in good English editions, as are many ofhis literary and social writ ings, his mathematical works are not well represented. This present volume was planned to fill that gap, with entirely new English translations and critical commentaries making the works easily accessiblefor a wide readership of specialists and non-specia lists alike. Four texts are included here. Although Albertis Commentarii rerum mathematicarum appears to be lost, we have his Ludi matematici . In these games Albertidescribes twenty practical applications of mathematics in an accessible style. The transl ation is accompanied by a new transcript of the recently identified manuscript held in the National Library in Florence upon which it was based.In Elementi di pittura, Alberti provides a catalogue of definitions and geometric constructions, using Euclidea n references but drawing a distinction between theoria of mathematical entities and praxis of painterly applications.Albertis most original mathematical contribution is a late work, De compendis cifris, first discussing the frequency of vowels, consonants , and different groupings in Latin, and then introducing a method of polyalphabeticsubstitution. Even more original is his enciphered code which permutes four numerals in two-, three-, and four-digit groups. De lunularum quadratura rehearses the classical demonstration of squaring a lune by Hippocrates

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Published in honor of his 70th birthday, this volume explores and celebrates the work of G.W. (Pete) Stewart, a world-renowned expert in computational linear algebra. It is widely accepted that Stewart is the successor to JamesWilkinson, the first gi ant in the field, taking up the perturbation theory research that Wilkinson so ably began and using it as a foundation for algorithmic insights. Stewarts results on rounding error in numerical computationsprovided basic understanding of floating-point com putation. His results on perturbation of eigensystems, pseudo-inverses, least-squares problems, and matrix factorizations are fundamental to numerical practice today. His algorithms forthe singular value decomposition, updating and downdating matrix facto rizations, and the eigenproblem broke new ground and are still widely used in an increasing number of applications. Stewarts papers, widely cited, arecharacterized by elegance in theorems and algorithms and clear, concise, and beautiful exposition. His si x popular textbooks are excellent sources of knowledge and history. Stewart is a member of the National Academy of Engineering andhas received numerous additional honors, including the Bauer Prize. Key features of this volume include: * Forty-four of Stew arts most influential research papers in two subject areas: matrix algorithms and rounding and perturbationtheory * A biography of Stewart * A complete list of Stewarts publications, students, and honors * Selected photographs * Commentaries on Stewarts w orks in collaboration with leading experts in the field G.W. Stewart: SelectedWorks with Commentaries will appeal to graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in computational linear algebra and the history of mathematics

Title:A Lost Mathematician, Takeo Nakasawa [electronic resource] The Forgotten Father of Matroid Theory
Author(s): Hirokazu Nishimura
Susumu Kuroda
Date:2009
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Matroid theory was invented in the middle of the 1930s by two mathematicians independently, namely, Hassler Whitney in the USA and Takeo Nakasawa in Japan. Whitney became famous, but Nakasawa remained anonymous until two decadesago. He left only four papers to the mathematical community, all of them written in the middle of the 1930s. It was a bad time to have lived in a country that had become as eccentric as possible. Just as Nazism became more and moreflamboyant in Europe in the 1930s, Japan becam e more and more esoteric and fanatical in the same time period. This book explains the little that is known about Nakasawas personal life in a Japan that had, among other failures, lostcontrol over its military. We do not know what forces caused him to be discharged from the Tokyo University of Arts and Sciences. His work was considered brilliant, his papers superb, if somewhat unconventional and mysterious innotation. We do know that, in the latter half of the 1930s, forced to give up his mathematical ca reer, he chose to live as a bureaucrat in Manchuria, at that time a puppet state of Japan. He died in 1946 at Khavarovsk, at the age of33, after one year of forced labor in Siberian and other USSR camps, without sufficient food or shelter to protect his h ealth. This book contains his four papers in German and their English translations as well as some extendedcommentary on the history of Japan during those years. The book also contains 14 photos of him or his family. Although the veil of mystery surroundi ng Nakasawas life has only been partially lifted, the work presented in this bookspeaks eloquently of a tragic loss to the mathematical community

Title:Parallel Coordinates [electronic resource] : Visual Multidimensional Geometry and Its Applications
Author(s): Alfred Inselberg
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is about visualization, systematically incorporating the fantastic human pattern recognition into the problem-solving process, and focusing on parallel coordinates. The barrier, imposed by our three-dimensionalhabitation and perceptual expe rience, has been breached by this innovative and versatile methodology. The accurate visualization of multidimensional problems and multivariate data unlocks insights into the role of dimensionality.Beginning with an introductory chapter on geometry, the mathematical foundations are intuitively developed, interlaced with applications to data mining, information visualization, computer vision, geometric modeling, collisionavoidance for air traffic and process-control. Many results appear for the first time . Multidimensional lines, planes, proximities, surfaces and their properties are unambiguously recognized (i.e. convexity viewed in any dimension)enabling powerful construction algorithms (for intersections, interior-points, linear-programming). Key featu res of Parallel Coordinates: * An easy-to-read self-contained chapter on data mining and information visualization * Numerousexercises with solutions, from basic to advanced topics, course projects and research directions * Fast Track markers throughout p rovide a quick grasp of essential material. * Extensive bibliography, index, and a chapter containinga collection of recent results (i.e. visualizing large networks, complex-valued functions and more) Parallel Coordinates requires only an elementary knowl edge of linear algebra. It is well-suited for self-study and as a textbook (orcompanion) for courses on information visualization, data mining, mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering, finance, management, manufacturing, in scientific disci plines and even the arts

Note:Time Series Analysis With Applications in R, Second Edition, presents an accessible approach to understanding time series models and their applications. Although the emphasis is on time domain ARIMA models and their analysis, thenew edition devotes t wo chapters to the frequency domain and three to time series regression models, models for heteroscedasticity, and threshold models. All of the ideas and methods are illustrated with both real and simulated datasets. A unique feature of this edition is it s integration with the R computing environment. The tables and graphical displays are accompanied by the R commands used to produce them. An extensive R package, TSA, which contains many newor revised R functions and all of the data used in the book, acco mpanies the written text. Script files of R commands for each chapter are available for download. There is also an extensive appendix in the book that leads the readerthrough the use of R commands and the new R package to carry out the analyses.

Title:Symmetry [electronic resource] : Cultural-historical and ontological aspects of science-arts relations The natural and man-made world in an interdisciplinary approach

Date:2007

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:All of us have a certain conception of what symmetry means, at least as far as its main forms are concerned (like mirror-reflection or rotation, but only rarely translation). What are the common features of these transformations?How can one generalis e them to explain similar phenomena that appear in different arts and sciences? What other forms of symmetry can we include in the scope of our study by the application of these generalised rules? How can a commonphenomenon lend possible solutions from on e discipline to another? Did you know that symmetry is a universal concept that has appeared in all cultures since prehistoric times, accompanying us through the history of mankind? Whatimportant role have asymmetries like the one-handedness of the neutri no played in the formation of matter, from the assumed Big Bang through to the asymmetries of the human brain? This book tries to explain these and a number ofrelated questions. This is the first comprehensive book on the topic since the publication of H. Weyls popular book on symmetry more than fifty years ago. It is relevant to almost all fields of science where symmetry appears as aphenomenon or is applied as a method, and where the concept is present in contemporary sciences, humanities and arts. Symm etry used to be a fundamental phenomenon in crystallography, where its basic concept was elaborated, inmorphological biology, and of course in mathematics, which provided its exact description. In the last half century symmetry (and symmetry breaking) has become a leading principle in physics, in all sciences that deal with thestructure of matter, as well as in the biochemistry of proteins, the study of the genetic code, brain research (where functional asymmetries have been revealed), psychology, and in developing architectural structures and in businessdecision-making, to name but a few examples. This book seeks to find common regularities among these apparently disparate phenomena. It covers most

Title:Elements of Mathematics for Economics and Finance [electronic resource]
Author(s): Vassilis C Mavron
Timothy N Phillips
Date:2007
Publisher:London : Springer London
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Based on over 15 years experience in the design and delivery of successful first-year courses, this book equips undergraduates with the mathematical skills required for degree courses in economics, finance, management andbusiness studies. The book st arts with a summary of basic skills and takes its readers as far as constrained optimisation helping them to become confident and competent in the use of mathematical tools and techniques that can beapplied to a range of problems in economics and finance. Designed as both a course text and a handbook, the book assumes little prior mathematical knowledge beyond elementary algebra and is therefore suitable for students returning tomathematics after a long break. The fundamental ideas are described in the si mplest mathematical terms, highlighting threads of common mathematical theory in the various topics. Features include: a systematic approach: ideas aretouched upon, introduced gradually and then consolidated through the use of illustrative examples severa l entry points to accommodate differing mathematical backgrounds numerous worked examples and exercises to illustrate the theoryand applications full solutions to exercises, available to lecturers via the web. Vass Mavron is Professor of Mathematics in th e Institute of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Wales Aberystwyth. Tim Phillips isProfessor of Mathematics and Professorial Fellow in the School of Mathematics at Cardiff University

Title:Calibrating the Cosmos [electronic resource] : How Cosmology Explains Our Big Bang Universe
Author(s): Frank S Levin
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Calibrating the Cosmos describes hard science, but is gently written. It explains in clear, non-mathematical language the measurements and the interpretation of the resulting data that have led to the current understanding of theorigin, evolution and properties of our expanding Big Bang universe. Many people have a sketchy idea of the work of cosmologists, but Professor Levins experience in teaching both scientific and liberal arts students has enabled himto impart much of our current thinking withou t resorting to difficult mathematics. Theoretical concepts are emphasized, in particular the symmetries of homogeneity and isotropy enjoyed by our universe on the largest scales, how thesesymmetries lead to only one quantity being needed to describe the g rowth of the universe from its infancy to the present time, and how the so-called parameters of the universe are the ingredients used to construct the model universesto which ours the real thing is compared. Levin includes the 2003 results from the Wilk inson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) and the 2003 and 2004 results of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey to ensure that the book is up to date.He explains the relevance of the discoveries done by the new physics Nobel laureates Smoot and Mather! Background m aterial is provided in the first four chapters the current picture and how it was attained are discussed in the nextfour chapters and some unsolved problems and conjectured solutions are explored in the final chapter

Title:Two Cultures [electronic resource] : Essays in Honour of David Speiser
Author(s): Kim Williams
Date:2006
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:David Speiser is Professor Emeritus at the Catholic University of Louvain, where he taught mathematics and physics from 1963 to 1990. His work in history of science included various publications, some of which are related to arthistory. Nephew of mat hematician Andreas Speiser, David Speiser's own wide-ranging interests have brought him into contact with a panorama of disciplines. Editor Kim Williams has assembled a group of notes where scholars contributeessays inspired by their contact with Prof. Sp eiser in honour of his eightieth birthday. Topics range from history of sciences to history of art, from architecture theory to music theory, from particle physics to the proliferation ofnuclear weapons, to an essay on the very nature of interdisciplinary studies.

Title:The Einstein Dossiers [electronic resource] Science and Politics Einsteins Berlin Period with an Appendix on Einsteins FBI File
Author(s): Siegfried Grundmann
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In 1919 the Prussian Ministry of Science, Arts and Culture opened a dossier on Einstein's Theory of Relativity. It was rediscovered by the author in 1961 and is used in conjunction with numerous other subsequently identified'Einstein' files as the ba sis of this fascinating book. In particular, the author carefully scrutinizes Einstein's FBI file from 1950-55 against mostly unpublished material from European including Soviet sources and presents hithertounknown documentation on Einstein's alleged cont acts with the German Communist Party and the Comintern. Siegfried Grundmann's thorough study of Einstein's participation on a committee of the League of Nations, based on archivalresearch in Geneva, is also new. This book outlines Einstein's image in poli tics and German science policy. It covers the period from his appointment as a researcher in Berlin to his fight abroad against the boycott of Germanscience after World War I and his struggle at home against attacks on Jewish physics of which he was made a prime target. An important gap in the literature on Einstein is thus filled, contributing much new material toward abetter understanding of Einstein's so rigorous break with Germany
