Symmetry Discovered

Author: Joe Rosen
Publisher: Courier Corporation
ISBN: 0486294331
Release Date: 1975
Genre: Science

Symmetry provides an insight into the way nature works and is often used by scientists and technologists to help solve problems. Symmetry has numerous other applications as well — with more being discovered all the time in science, the arts and other fields of human endeavor. This classic work provides an excellent introduction to the basic concepts and terminology (including, optionally, group theory), as well as lucid discussions of geometric symmetry, other symmetries and appropriate symmetry, symmetry in nature, uses of symmetry in science and much more. Readers wishing to pursue specific topics will find many references that reflect the author's wide reading in the subject and his own obvious enthusiasm. For this edition, Dr. Rosen has provided a new preface, solutions to the problems, and an addendum to the bibliography.

Microcomputer based labs

Author: Robert Tinker
Publisher: Springer Verlag
ISBN: 354061558X
Release Date: 1996
Genre: Computers

Microcomputer-based labs, the use of real-time data capture and display in teaching, give the learner new ways to explore and understand the world. As this book shows, the international effort over a quarter-century to develop and understand microcomputer-based labs (MBL) has resulted in a rich array of innovative implementations and some convincing evidence for the value of computers for learning. The book is a sampler of MBL work by an outstanding international group of scientists and educators, based on papers they presented at a seminar held as part of the NATO Special Programme on Advanced Educational Technology. The story they tell of the development of MBL offers valuable policy lessons on how to promote educational innovation. The book will be of interest to a wide range of educators and to policy makers.

Reality Is Not What It Seems

Author: Carlo Rovelli
Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9780735213937
Release Date: 2018
Genre: Science

"What are the elementary ingredients of the world? Do time and space exist? And what exactly is reality? In elegant and accessible prose, theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli leads us on a wondrous journey from Democritus to Einstein, from Michael Faraday to gravitational waves, and from classical physics to his own work in quantum gravity. As he shows us how the idea of reality has evolved over time, Rovelli offers deeper explanations of the theories he introduced so concisely in Seven Brief Lessons on Physics"--page 4 of cover.
