A New Approach to Differential Geometry using Clifford's Geometric Algebra
Differential geometry is the study of the curvature and calculus of curves and surfaces. A New Approach to Differential Geometry using Clifford's Geometric Algebra simplifies the discussion to an accessible level of differential geometry by introducing Clifford algebra. This presentation is relevant because Clifford algebra is an effective tool for dealing with the rotations intrinsic to the studyIntroduction to the Mathematics of Inversion in Remote Sensing and Indirect Measurements
This graduate-level monograph develops the background and fundamental theory of inversion processes used in remote sensing. The treatment starts at an elementary level and is largely self-contained; each chapter begins with an elementary discussion outlining problems and questions to be covered and concludes with a bibliography.After an introductory chapter, the text progresses to simple problemsEssential Mathematical Methods for the Physical Sciences
The mathematical methods that physical scientists need for solving substantial problems in their fields of study are set out clearly and simply in this tutorial-style textbook. Students will develop problem-solving skills through hundreds of worked examples, self-test questions and homework problems. Each chapter concludes with a summary of the main procedures and results and all assumed priorThe Failure of String Theory and the Search for Unity in Physical Law for Unity in Physical Law
When does physics depart the realm of testable hypothesis and come to resemble theology? Peter Woit argues that string theory isn’t just going in the wrong direction, it’s not even science. Not Even Wrong shows that what many physicists call superstring theory” is not a theory at all. It makes no predictions, not even wrong ones, and this very lack of falsifiability is what has allowed the subjectThe Quest for the Theory of Everything
No scientific quest is as compelling as the search for the key to understand the universe—the elusive unified “Theory of Everything”—a theory so concise it could fit on a T-shirt. Lively and thought-provoking, Universe on a T-Shirt tells the fascinating story of the search for the Holy Grail of physics.Dan Falk places this intriguing story in its historical context, tracing the quest from ancientFoundation Mathematics for the Physical Sciences
This tutorial-style textbook develops the basic mathematical tools needed by first and second year undergraduates to solve problems in the physical sciences. Students gain hands-on experience through hundreds of worked examples, self-test questions and homework problems. Each chapter includes a summary of the main results, definitions and formulae. Over 270 worked examples show how to put theMathematics for Quantum Chemistry
This concise volume offers undergraduates an introduction to mathematical formalism in problems of molecular structure and motion. The main topics cover the calculus of orthogonal functions, algebra of vector spaces, and Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulation of classical mechanics and applications to molecular motion. Answers to problems. 1966 edition.
