Ob Blitz oder blauer Himmel, Glühwürmchen, Teetassen oder Seifenblasen - im täglichen Leben stolpert man laufend über Naturphänomene. Jearl Walker hat die spannendsten und witzigsten aufgegriffen und in diesem Buch deren physikalische Erklärungen skizziert - nicht in Formeln, sondern mit Worten. Einige Lösungen sind einfach zu finden, andere sind enorm schwierig und gestandene Physiker kommen ins Schwitzen beim Versuch, diese Fragen zu beantworten. Der "Fliegende Zirkus der Physik" existiert seit nunmehr 30 Jahren. Das Buch ist in über zehn Sprachen übersetzt worden und wird noch immer weltweit verkauft. Für diese Neuauflage hat Walker das Buch vollständig überarbeitet und zahlreiche neue Phänomene aus der physikalischen Alltagswelt aufgenommen. "Der fliegende Zirkus der Physik" ist reich bebildert und illustriert und lädt damit zum Schmökern und Nachdenken ein.

Completely revised and updated, Evaluation of Human Work is a compendium of ergonomics methods and techniques that is both broad and deep. The editors have once again brought together a team of world-renowned experts and created a forum for them to introduce their most valued techniques and methods. Almost every chapter has been revised and several new chapters have been added. See what’s new in the Third Edition: Sociotechnical design of work systems Team design and evaluation Learning from failures through a joint cognitive systems perspective The Analysis of organizational processes Techniques in user-centered design Increased understanding of the nature of knowledge and knowledge management in contemporary systems Environment surveys Systems for near miss reporting and analysis The one thing that has remained unchanged from the first and second editions is that this text is produced NOT as a cookbook of ergonomics methods. The editor places ergonomics methodology in context, and each chapter carefully describes the background to method development in that area and the application of methods and tools. Exploring the topic of ergonomics/human factors from a ‘doing it’ perspective, the book serves as a guide to what ergonomics can offer industry, business, or human service professionals and a reference for practicing ergonomists.

Men of Physics: Lord Rayleigh–The Man and His Work presents an appraisal of the significance of Rayleigh's scientific work, together with extracts from his published papers. The book starts by providing a biographical sketch of John William Strutt, Third Baron Rayleigh (1842-1919). The text then discusses Lord Rayleigh's contributions to science, including the physical phenomena, optical instruments, electrical standards, and the theory of relativity. Selections from Rayleigh’s scientific papers, which are included in the book, are also considered. These selections include papers about the theory of resonance; the intensity and polarization of the scattered light; the manufacture and theory of diffraction-gratings; and the binaural effect. Other selected papers include those about the application of the principle of reciprocity to acoustics; the stability of fluid flow; the Rayleigh disk; and acoustic streaming. The study of surface waves in elastic solids; the discovery and isolation of argon; sound propagation; and electromagnetic radiation are the other topics included in the selection of papers in the book. Physicists will find the book invaluable.
The Reader's Guide to Music is designed to provide a useful single-volume guide to the ever-increasing number of English language book-length studies in music. Each entry consists of a bibliography of some 3-20 titles and an essay in which these titles are evaluated, by an expert in the field, in light of the history of writing and scholarship on the given topic. The more than 500 entries include not just writings on major composers in music history but also the genres in which they worked (from early chant to rock and roll) and topics important to the various disciplines of music scholarship (from aesthetics to gay/lesbian musicology).

Exciting reading for anyone with a curious mind! 'Walking one day by a golf course in Wisconsin, I was startled to hear a sharp bang as a golf ball narrowly missed my head and hit a tree. My companion cheerfully remarked, 'That could have killed you, you know.' I picked up the innocent looking little white ball and looked at it with new respect.' Prompted by this perilous experience, Brian Kaye has written a delightful and informative book on the design and behavior of different kinds of missiles from golf balls, arrows, and slingshots to comets and rockets to outer space. You'll learn about the science of tennis and find the answer to questions like why a golf ball has dimples or why a boomerang comes back. Don't miss Brian Kaye's latest, you'll be amused and amazed - and learn some physics to boot.
