Isaac Newton

Adventurer in Thought

In this elegant, absorbing biography of Isaac Newton (1642-1727), Rupert Hall surveys the vast field of modern scholarship in order to interpret Newton's mathematical and experimental approach to nature. Mathematics was always the deepest, most innovative and productive of Newton's interests. However, he was also a historian, theologian, chemist, civil servant and natural philosopher. These diverse studies were unified in his single design as a Christian to explore every facet of God's creation. The exploration during the past forty years of Newton's huge manuscript legacy, has greatly altered previous stories of Newton's life, throwing new light on his personality and intellect. Hall's discussion of this research, first published in 1992, shows that Newton cannot simply be explained as a Platonist, or mystic. He remains a complex and enigmatic genius with an immensely imaginative and commonsensical mind.

The bringing together, in an annotated and critical edition, of all the known mathematical papers of Isaac Newton marks a step forward in the publication of the works of this great natural philosopher. In all, there are eight volumes in this present edition. Translations of papers in Latin face the original text and notes are printed on the page-openings to which they refer, so far as possible. Each volume contains a short index of names only and an analytical table of contents; a comprehensive index to the complete work is included in Volume VIII. Volume I covers three exceptionally productive years: Newton's final year as an undergraduate at Trinity College, Cambridge, and the two following years, part of which were spent at his home in Lincolnshire on account of the closure of the university during an outbreak of bubonic plague.

Begegnungen am CERN – Menschen, die die Geheimnisse des Universums entschlüsseln/Michael Krause stellt sie uns vor Eine »wissenschaftliche Sensation«, ein »historischer Meilenstein«, historisch so bedeutend wie die Mondlandung: Als Wissenschaftler des CERN im Juli 2012 die Existenz eines »Gottesteilchens«, das allen anderen Teilchen Masse verleiht, mit einer Wahrscheinlichkeit von mehr als 99,999 Prozent bestätigten, waren die Reaktionen überwältigend. Schließlich arbeiten die Forscher hier an nichts Geringerem als an der Entschlüsselung der Geheimnisse des Universums. Die Suche nach dem Grund des Daseins und dem Ursprung aller Materie ist auch das Thema dieses Buches. Träume, Visionen, Forschungen: die Menschen stehen im Mittelpunkt Das »Gottesteilchen«, die Erforschung der »Dunklen Materie« und der »Dunklen Energie« und der stärkste je gebaute Teilchenbeschleuniger der Welt – all das sind die spannenden Bestandteile des Buches. In den Mittelpunkt seiner Arbeit stellt Krause jedoch die Menschen am CERN, ihren Hintergrund, ihre Geschichte, ihre Arbeit, ihre Forschungen, Träume und Visionen – sie sind das Hauptthema des Buches. Krause verleiht den wissenschaftlichen Forschungen am CERN somit ein persönliches Gesicht und schreibt das Portrait einer ganzen Generation von Wissenschaftlern, die in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten an der sogenannten »Neuen Physik« gearbeitet haben.

Das Buch vermittelt leicht verständlich alle mathematischen Grundlagen in Anwendung für Bauingenieure. Dabei erklärt der Autor ausführlich, wie mathematische Ideen zur Lösung von technischen Problemen mit praktischem Nutzen entwickelt werden können. Damit wird die Beziehung der Mathematik zu anderen Anwendungsgebieten der Physik durch anschauliche Beispiele aus der Baupraxis schnell transparent. Nicht mathematische Detailstrenge steht im Mittelpunkt, sondern Verständlichkeit und Praxisbezug. Auf der CD sind neben zahlreichen Anwendungsbeispielen in Maple und C++ ein leistungsfähiger C++ Compiler mit integrierter Entwicklungsumgebung, das Finite Elemente-Programm SANFEX, zwei Texteditoren und weitere Mathematik-Freeware enthalten. So wird jede Mathematikvorlesung des Grundstudiums zum Erfolg und hat für den Anwender "endlich einen Sinn".

Keeping the style, content, and focus that made the first edition a bestseller, Integral Transforms and their Applications, Second Edition stresses the development of analytical skills rather than the importance of more abstract formulation. The authors provide a working knowledge of the analytical methods required in pure and applied mathematics, physics, and engineering. The second edition includes many new applications, exercises, comments, and observations with some sections entirely rewritten. It contains more than 500 worked examples and exercises with answers as well as hints to selected exercises. The most significant changes in the second edition include: New chapters on fractional calculus and its applications to ordinary and partial differential equations, wavelets and wavelet transformations, and Radon transform Revised chapter on Fourier transforms, including new sections on Fourier transforms of generalized functions, Poissons summation formula, Gibbs phenomenon, and Heisenbergs uncertainty principle A wide variety of applications has been selected from areas of ordinary and partial differential equations, integral equations, fluid mechanics and elasticity, mathematical statistics, fractional ordinary and partial differential equations, and special functions A broad spectrum of exercises at the end of each chapter further develops analytical skills in the theory and applications of transform methods and a deeper insight into the subject A systematic mathematical treatment of the theory and method of integral transforms, the book provides a clear understanding of the subject and its varied applications in mathematics, applied mathematics, physical sciences, and engineering.

Diese Geschichte des Wissenstransfers beginnt im 7. Jahrhundert v. Chr. in Ionien an der kleinasiatischen Küste. Naturphilosophen wie Thales von Milet erforschen hier Himmel und Erde. Auf Milet folgen Athen, Alexandria, Rom und Byzanz als Zentren der Wissenschaft. Doch zu Beginn des Mittelalters geht dieses Wissen in Europa verloren. Aufbewahrt wird es in der arabischen Welt: Über das abbasidische Bagdad, das fatimidische Kairo und das omayyadische Damaskus folgt Freely arabischsprachigen Gelehrten, Ärzten und Mathematikern nach Andalusien. Muslime, nestorianische Christen, Juden und Sabier bringen das verlorene Wissen im Zuge der Expansion des Islams zurück nach Europa und liefern dem Westen damit die Voraussetzung für das neue wissenschaftliche Weltbild, das in den neuen Zentren der Wissenschaft wie Paris und Oxford entsteht. Eine faszinierende Reise durch die Zeit zwischen Ost und West Was Europa der islamischen Welt verdankt Eine Gegenerzählung zum »clash of civilisations« und der angeblichen Wissenschaftsfeindlichkeit des Islam.
