From teleportation and space elevators to alien contact and interstellar travel, science fiction and fantasy writers have come up with some brilliant and innovative ideas. Yet how plausible are these ideas--for instance, could Mr. Weasley's flying car in the Harry Potter books really exist? Which concepts might actually happen, and which ones wouldn't work at all? Wizards, Aliens, and Starships delves into the most extraordinary details in science fiction and fantasy--such as time warps, shape changing, rocket launches, and illumination by floating candle--and shows readers the physics and math behind the phenomena.
Each step higher in math studies is crucial to doing well at the next level. Pre-Calc is the gateway to higher level mathematics of which the best degrees and careers are built upon. The core essentials in 6 laminated pages can be used along with your text and lectures, as a review before testing, or as a memory companion that keeps key answers always at your fingertips.
This book offers an introduction to differential geometry for the non-specialist. It includes most of the required material from multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and basic analysis. An intuitive approach and a minimum of prerequisites make it a valuable companion for students of mathematics and physics.
This textbook offers a high-level introduction to multi-variable differential calculus. Differential forms are introduced incrementally in the narrative, eventually leading to a unified treatment of Green's, Stokes' and Gauss' theorems. Furthermore, the presentation offers a natural route to differential geometry.
