2 Brandt, Siegmund THE PICTURE BOOK OF QUANTUM MECHANICS
Springer 2000 0387951415 / 9780387951416 Hardcover Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The aim of this book is to explain the basic concepts and phenomena of quan tum mechanics by means of visualization. Computer-generated illustrations a re used extensively throughout the text, helping to establish the relation between quantum mechanics --- wave functions, interference, atomic structur e, and so forth --- and classical physics --- point mechanics, statistical mechanics, and wave optics. Even more important, by studying the pictures i n parallel with the text, readers develop an intuition for such notoriously abstract phenomena as - the tunnel effect - excitation and decay of metast able states - wave packet motion within a well - systems of distinguishable and indistinguishable particles - free wave packets and scattering in 3 di mensions - angular momentum decomposition - stationary bound states in vari ous 3-dimensional potentials - Kepler motion of wave packets in the Coulomb field - Spin and magnetic resonance Illustrations from experiments in a va riety of fields, including chemistry, and molecular, atomic, nuclear, and p article physics, underline the basic as well as the practical importance of quantum mechanics. Illustrations from experiments in a variety of fields, including chemistry, and molecular, atomic, nuclear, and particle physics, underline the basic as well as the practical importance of quantum mechanic s. From reviews of earlier editions: Most serious students of physics and all of their teachers will want to consider having this orderly and graphic out.

3 Case, Ted J. AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO THEORETICAL ECOLOGY
Oxford University Press 1999 0195085124 / 9780195085129 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. An Illustrated Guide to Theoretical Ecology uses a combination of visual pr esentations and the symbolic logic of algebra and calculus to provide the m ost accessible introduction to ecological theory available. It gives studen ts the basic tools they need to understand the complexities of ecological s ystems and to analyze simple quantitative ecological problems. The author w alks students through the most common models in ecology, beginning with fir st principles and then gently making each formulation accessible through a step-by-step development of equations paired with lavish illustrations. He also applies theoretical developments to practical issues in conservation a nd resource management, offering a more visceral understanding of the purpo se and utility of the theory and demonstrating how it may need modification in its application to real-world problems and future directions. The text also includes some basic ecological genetics and an exploration of metapopu lation dynamics. An Illustrated Guide to Theoretical Ecology is enhanced by over 500 two-color diagrams, many end-of-chapter problems, and a website that includes simulation models that parallel each chapters development (http://www.nceas.ucsb.edu/BookCase). Ideal as a main text for advanced undergraduate courses in theoretical and mathematical ecology or conservation biology, this unique book can also serve as a supplement or a self-guided tutorial in general ecology, population ecology, and community ecology courses.

6 Hefferon, Jim LINEAR ALGEBRA
Virginia Commonwealth Univer 2009 0982406215 / 9780982406212 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The coverage is standard: linear systems and Gauss' method, vector spaces, linear maps and matrices, determinants, and eigenvectors and eigenvalues. Prerequisites: A semester of calculus. Students with three semesters of calculus can skip a few sections. Applications: Each chapter has three or four discussions of additional topics and applications. These are suitable for independent study or for small group work. What makes it different? The approach is developmental. Although the presentation is focused on covering the requisite material by proving things, it does not start with an assumption that students are already able at abstract work. Instead, it proceeds with a great deal of motivation, many computational examples, and exercises that range from routine verifications to (a few) challenges. The goal is, in the context of developing the usual material of an undergraduate linear algebra course, to help raise the level of mathematical maturity of the class.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Physics and engineering students need a clear understanding of mathematics in order to solve a vast array of problems posed to them in coursework. Unfortunately, in many textbooks, mathematical proofs and techniques obscure a fundamental understanding of the physical principles. In a clear and didactic manner, this book explains to the student why particular advanced mathematical techniques are useful for solving certain problems. The aim is to convey a deeper appreciation of mathematical methods that are applicable to physics and engineering through a discussion of a wide range of real physical problems. The topics covered include simultaneous equations, three-dimensional geometry and vectors, complex numbers, differential equations, partial derivatives, Taylor series, and Lagrange multipliers.

In Tammet's world, numbers are beau tiful and mathematics illuminates our lives and minds. Using anecdotes, eve ryday examples, and ruminations on history, literature, and more, Tammet al lows us to share his unique insights and delight in the way numbers, fracti ons, and equations underpin all our lives. Inspired variously by the complexity of snowflakes, Anne Boleyn's eleven fingers, and his many siblings, Tammet explores questions such as why time seems to speed up as we age, whether there is such a thing as an average person, and how we can make sense of those we love. His provocative and inspiring new book will change the way you think about math and fire your imagination to view the world with fresh eyes.

OVERCOMING MATH ANXIETY, Tobias, Sheila
12 Tobias, Sheila OVERCOMING MATH ANXIETY
W. W. Norton & Company 1995 0393313077 / 9780393313079 Paperback Very Good 
Sheila Tobias said it first: mathematics avoidance is not a failure of inte llect, but a failure of nerve. When this book was first published in 1978, Tobias's political and psychological analysis brought hope and made "math a nxiety" a household expression. The new edition retains the author's pungen t analysis of what makes math "hard" for otherwise successful people and ho w women, more than men, become victims of a gendered view of math. It has b een substantially updated to incorporate new research on what we know and d on't know about "sex differences" in brain organization and function, and i t has been enlarged to include problems, puzzles, and strategies tried out in hundreds of math anxiety workshops Tobias and her colleagues have sponso red. What remains unchanged is the author's politics. She sees "math anxiety" as a political issue. So long as people themselves to be disabled in mathematics and do not rise up and confront the social and pedagogical origins of their disabilities, they will be denied "math mental health." Tobias defines this as "the willingness to learn the math you need when you need it." In an ever more technical society, having that willingness can make the difference between high and low self-esteem, failure and success.

THE COMPLEAT STRATEGYST: BEING A PRIMER ON THE THEORY OF GAMES OF STRATEGY, Williams, J. D.
14 Williams, J. D. THE COMPLEAT STRATEGYST: BEING A PRIMER ON THE THEORY OF GAMES OF STRATEGY
Dover Publications 1986 0486251012 / 9780486251011 Paperback Very Good 
When J. D. Williams wrote this entertaining, witty introduction for the non scientist, game theory was still a somewhat mysterious subject familiar to very few scientists beyond those researchers, like himself, working for the military. Now, over thirty years after its original publication as a Rand Corporation research study, his light-hearted though thoroughly effective p rimer is the recognized classic introduction to an increasingly applicable discipline. Used by amateurs, professionals, and students throughout the wo rld in the classroom, on the job, and for personal amusement.
