Ian Stewart, “Does God Play Dice?: The New Mathematics of Chaos”

English | ISBN: 0140256024 | 1997 | 416 pages | EPUB | 6 MB

Since the dramatic discovery of the mathematical concept of chaos in 1989, the controversy of its contents has settled down. This revised edition of Does God Play Dice? takes a fresh look at its achievements and potential. With a new preface and three completely new chapters, it includes the latest practical applications of chaos theory, such as developing intelligent heart pacemakers. All this provides a fascinating new answer to Einstien’s question which provided the title of this book.

Professor Ian Stewart, “Seventeen Equations that Changed the World”

English | ISBN: 184668532X | 2013 | 352 pages | EPUB | 5 MB

From Newton’s Law of Gravity to the Black-Scholes model used by bankers to predict the markets, equations, are everywhere – and they are fundamental to everyday life.Seventeen Equations that Changed the World examines seventeen ground-breaking equations that have altered the course of human history. He explores how Pythagoras’s Theorem led to GPS and Satnav; how logarithms are applied in architecture; why imaginary numbers were important in the development of the digital camera, and what is really going on with Schrödinger’s cat.
Entertaining, surprising and vastly informative, Seventeen Equations that Changed the World is a highly original exploration – and explanation – of life on earth.

Professor Ian Stewart, “Professor Stewart’s Casebook of Mathematical Mysteries”

English | ISBN: 1846683483 | 2015 | 320 pages | EPUB | 2 MB

Like its wildly popular predecessors Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities and Hoard of Mathematical Treasures, Professor Stewart’s brand-new book is a miscellany of over 150 mathematical curios and conundrums, packed with trademark humour and numerous illustrations.In addition to the fascinating formulae and thrilling theorems familiar to Professor Stewart’s fans, the Casebook follows the adventures of the not-so-great detective Hemlock Soames and his sidekick Dr John Watsup (immortalised in the phrase ‘Watsup, Doc?’). By a remarkable coincidence they live at 222B Baker Street, just across the road from their more illustrious neighbour who, for reasons known only to Dr Watsup, is never mentioned by name. A typical item is ‘The Case of the Face-Down Aces’, a mathematical magic trick of quite devilish cunning…
Ranging from one-liners to four-page investigations from the frontiers of mathematical research, the Casebook reveals Professor Stewart at his challenging and entertaining best.

On Characters of Finite Groups (Mathematical Lectures from Peking University) by Michel Broué

English | 30 Jan. 2018 | ISBN: 9811068771 | 264 Pages | PDF | 3.08 MB

This book explores the classical and beautiful character theory of finite groups. It does it by using some rudiments of the language of categories. Originally emerging from two courses offered at Peking University (PKU), primarily for third-year students, it is now better suited for graduate courses, and provides broader coverage than books that focus almost exclusively on groups.

Basic and Advanced Statistical Tests: Writing Results Sections and Creating Tables and Figures By Amanda Ross

English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 | 223 Pages | ISBN : 9463510842 | 34.28 MB

This book focuses on extraction of pertinent information from statistical test outputs, in order to write result sections and/or accompanying tables and/or figures.
The book is divided into two encompassing sections: Part I – Basic Statistical Tests and Part II – Advanced Statistical Tests. Part I includes 9 basic statistical tests, and Part II includes 7 advanced statistical tests. Each chapter provides the name of a basic or advanced statistical test, a brief description, examples of when to use each, a sample scenario, and a sample results section write-up. Depending on the test and need, most chapters provide a table and/or figure to accompany the write-up.
The purpose of the book is to provide researchers with a reference manual for writing results sections and tables/figures in scholarly works. The authors fill a gap in research support manuals by focusing on sample write-ups and tables/figures for given statistical tests. The book assists researchers by eliminating the need to comb through numerous publications to determine necessary information to report, as well as correct APA format to use, at the close of analyses.
