Description : Eli Maor examines the role of infinity in mathematics and geometry and its cultural impact on the arts and sciences. He evokes the profound intellectual impact the infinite has exercised on the human mind--from the horror infiniti of the Greeks to the works of M. C. Escher; from the ornamental designs of the Moslems, to the sage Giordano Bruno, whose belief in an infinite universe led to his death at the hands of the Inquisition. But above all, the book describes the mathematician's fascination with infinity--a fascination mingled with puzzlement. Maor explores the idea of infinity in mathematics and in art and argues that this is the point of contact between the two, best exemplified by the work of the Dutch artist M. C. Escher, six of whose works are shown here in beautiful color plates.--Los Angeles Times [Eli Maor's] enthusiasm for the topic carries the reader through a rich panorama.--Choice Fascinating and enjoyable.... places the ideas of infinity in a cultural context and shows how they have been espoused and molded by mathematics.--Science -- "Science"

Description : Gravity is one of the four fundamental interactions that exist in nature. Understanding gravity is not only essential for understanding the motion of objects on Earth, but also the motion of all celestial objects, and even the expansion of the Universe itself. In this book George Gamow takes an enlightening look at three scientists whose work unlocked many of the mysteries behind the laws of physics: Galileo, the first to examine closely the process of free and restricted fall; Newton, originator of a universal force; and Einstein, who proposed that gravity is no more than the curvature of the four-dimensional space-time continuum. The author has illustrated the book himself with some technical fanciful drawings.

Description : From what happens inside the atom to how things work on larger scales in the universe, readers can rely on George Gamow's authority and be delighted by his sheer joy of physics. Gamow's breadth of knowledge was astounding - he made major contributions to advances in both cosmology and molecular biology. His elucidation of radioactivity, the Big Bang theory, and even how the genetic code might be transcribed years before DNA was discovered makes him one of the 20th century's greatest scientists. Gamow - the creator of the famous MR. TOMPKINS series - offers here his thoughts how the atom works; the basic laws of chemistry; radioactivity; electromagnetism; the nature of light; and how scientists understand space, time, and motion. These writings were collected from his exhaustive 1958 volume on the physical sciences Matter, Earth, And Sky, now out of print and not available in any other collection.

Description : The Gamow Memorial International Conference was held in Odessa, Ukraine in August 2004. The conference was dedicated to 100th anniversary of George Gamow, one of the most prominent scientists of the twentieth century. His major scientific achievements include the development of the alpha and beta decay theory and the Big Bang theory of the expanding universe. The conference covered key topics including cosmology and gravitation; large-scale structure of the universe; gravitational lenses in the universe. This volume provides a useful source of reference for graduates and researchers in astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology.

Description : Canon Speedlites and Nikon Speedlights are small, off-camera flashguns that can provide big results - if you know how to use them properly. Acclaimed Boston photographers Lou Jones, Bob Keenan and Steve Ostrowski guide you through the technical and creative aspects of how to get the most out of these powerful tools in this indispensable guide, packed full of inspirational images and comprehensive diagrams of the lighting set ups used to capture them. They are significantly more advanced, lighter and considerably cheaper than a standard flashgun, and have many advantages. They are small (and cheap) enough that a number can be carried in your kit, and they can be used in combination, triggered wirelessly. They use through-the-lens (TTL) metering, which allows you to use the in-camera LCD and histograms to calculate the required power/direction, rather than havng to use a light meter or trial and error. They use proprietary, dedicated technology (from Canon and Nikon) that means there are no compatability issues. Getting the most out of them, however, remains a mystery - most photographers still just use their speedlights in the same way as a standard flash gun. This is where this book comes in. Key Features *Expand your creative potential by mastering your external flashgun *Full of Professional, Inspirational images with full lighting diagrams to show you how they were taken *Covers all of the best-selling Canon Speedlites and Nikon Speedlights
