Title:Weak Links [electronic resource] : The Universal Key to the Stability of Networks and Complex Systems
Author(s): Peter Csermely
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:How can our societies be stabilized in a crisis? Why can we enjoy and understand Shakespeare? Why are fruitflies uniform? How do omnivorous eating habits aid our survival? What makes the Mona Lisas smile beautiful? How dowomen keep our social structu res intact? Could there possibly be a single answer to all these questions? This book shows that the statement: weak links stabilize complex systems provides the key to understanding each of theseintriguing puzzles, and many others too. The author (recip ient of several distinguished science communication prizes) uses weak (low affinity, low probability) interactions as a thread to introduce a vast variety of networks fromproteins to economics and ecosystems. Many people, from Nobel Laureates to high-scho ol students have helped to make the book understandable to all interested readers. This unique book and the ideas it develops will have a significantimpact on many, seemingly diverse, fields of study. A very personal, engaging, and unique book that will a ppeal to readers and get them thinking Steve Strogatz An adventurous, entertainingly eclectic and rich work both for experts andlaymen Lszl-Albert Barabsi This masterpiece should serve as an example of how science can be discussed Gyrgy Buzski Outstanding - I wish more books were written this way Daniel J.

Title:The Music of the Big Bang [electronic resource] The Cosmic Microwave Background and the New Cosmology
Author(s): Amedeo Balbi
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The cosmic microwave background radiation is the afterglow of the big bang: a tenuous signal, more than 13 billion years old, which carries the answers to many of the questions about the nature of our Universe. It wasserendipitously discovered in 196 4, and thoroughly investigated in the last four decades by a large number of experiments. Two Nobel Prizes in Physics have already been awarded for research on the cosmic background radiation: one in1978 to Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson, who first discov ered it, the other in 2006, to George Smoot and John Mather, for the results of the COBE satellite. Most cosmological information is encoded in the cosmic background radiation byacoustic oscillations in the dense plasma that filled the primordial Universe : a music of the big bang, which cosmologists have long been trying to reconstruct and analyze, in order to distinguish different cosmological models,much like one can distinguish different musical instruments by their timbre and overtones. Only lately, t his amazing cosmic sound has been unveiled by such experiments as BOOMERANG and MAXIMA and, more recently, by the WMAP satellite.This led to a giant leap in our understanding of the Universe, but the investigation is not ended yet. The book focuses on how the exploration of the cosmic background radiation has shaped our picture of the Universe, leading even thenon-specialized readers towards the frontier of cosmological research, helping them to understand, using a simple language and captivating metaphor s, the mechanisms behind the Universe in which we live. This non-technical tour of thediscovery and significance of the whispers of creation, the fossil radiation from the Big Bang, is a delight to read. Prof. Joe Silk, University of Oxford, a pioneering contributor to understanding the structure of the cosmicbackground radiation
