Facts and Mysteries in Elementary Particle Physics

**Facts and Mysteries in Elementary Particle Physics** by Martinus Veltman

World Scientific Publishing Company | 2003 | ISBN: 981238149X | 348 pages | PDF | 11 MB

Review

... students and researchers in elementary particle physics should seriously consider having this book in their personal library, partly to be able to look at the many pictures and brief biographies of their favorite elementary particle physicists, and partly to learn Veltman's incisive thinking on obscure or unsettled areas in particle physics ... there are plenty of popular books on dark matter, dark energy, black holes, and cosmology, but relatively few straightforward yet fascinating popular books on elementary particle physics, so in this sense Veltman's book is exactly what is needed. -- American Journal of Physics

Elementary Combinatorial Geometry

13 August 2011

**Elementary Combinatorial Geometry**

The aim of this book is to present some ideas, methods and topics in elementary combinatorial geometry. Even if most of the book can be understood without any mathematical background, so it is accessible for 12-14 years old children too, we recommend it to high school students and college students as an introduction to a few topics in combinatorial (or convex) geometry (counting problems, pigeonhole principle, Helly's theorem, Sperner lemma). Our approach is basically an elementary one, but it is useful to know some combinatorial techniques (such as the product rule, mathematical induction, recursive counting, double counting, etc.) and some basic notions (number of permutations, binomial coefficients). These notions appear in the subject index, so they can be identified easily. Some problems (Helly's theorem, Sperner lemma, etc.) are formulated both in R^2 and in R^3 to help the understanding of analogies and to show some directions of generalization. Almost all of these problems can be solved even in R^n, but we presented only their 2 or 3 dimensional version, for a better understanding of the main ideas, without the complications of the tools necessary in higher dimensions. Some problems we present here are classical ones, some are from regional contests and from different levels of the mathematical olympiads and some are extracted from articles (and formulated in low dimension). The main purpose was not to create an exhaustive col1ection, but to offer a quick and short overview, to present a few properties which have surprising applications also in higher mathematics (the Sperner lemma) and to show some interesting ways of generalizations. So this book wants to be a kind of bridge between elementary problems and university courses etc....

2012 | 1280 Pages | ISBN: 1111567689 , 1111578273 | PDF | 29 MB

Algebra can be like a foreign language, but ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5E, gives you the tools and practice you need to fully understand the language of algebra and the "why" behind problem solving. Using Strategy and Why explanations in worked examples and a six-step problem solving strategy, ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5E, will guide you through an integrated learning process that will expand your reasoning abilities as it teaches you how to read, write, and think mathematically. Feel confident about your skills through additional practice in the text and Enhanced WebAssign. With ELEMENTARY AND INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5E, algebra will make sense because it is not just about the x...it's also about the WHY.

Elementary Differential Geometry

**Elementary Differential Geometry**

Publisher: Cambridge University Press | 2010 | PDF | 330 pages | ISBN: 0521721490 | 5.4Mb

The link between the physical world and its visualization is geometry. This easy-to-read, generously illustrated textbook presents an elementary introduction to differential geometry with emphasis on geometric results. Avoiding formalism as much as possible, the author harnesses basic mathematical skills in analysis and linear algebra to solve interesting geometric problems, which prepare students for more advanced study in mathematics and other scientific fields such as physics and computer science. The wide range of topics includes curve theory, a detailed study of surfaces, curvature, variation of area and minimal surfaces, geodesics, spherical and hyperbolic geometry, the divergence theorem, triangulations, and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem. The section on cartography demonstrates the concrete importance of elementary differential geometry in applications. Clearly developed arguments and proofs, colour illustrations, and over 100 exercises and solutions make this book ideal for courses and self-study. The only prerequisites are one year of undergraduate calculus and linear algebra.
