Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World By Mark Miodownik
2014 | 252 Pages | ISBN: 0544236041 | EPUB | 32 MB

• New York Times Bestseller • New York Times Notable Book 2014 • Winner of the Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books “A thrilling account of the modern material world.” —Wall Street Journal “Miodownik, a materials scientist, explains the history and science behind things such as paper, glass, chocolate, and concrete with an infectious enthusiasm.” —Scientific American Why is glass see-through? What makes elastic stretchy? Why does any material look and behave the way it does? These are the sorts of questions that renowned materials scientist Mark Miodownik constantly asks himself. Miodownik studies objects as ordinary as an envelope and as unexpected as concrete cloth, uncovering the fascinating secrets that hold together our physical world. In Stuff Matters, Miodownik explores the materials he encounters in a typical morning, from the steel in his razor to the foam in his sneakers. Full of enthralling tales of the miracles of engineering that permeate our lives, Stuff Matters will make you see stuff in a whole new way. “Stuff Matters is about hidden wonders, the astonishing properties of materials we think boring, banal, and unworthy of attention…It’s possible this science and these stories have been told elsewhere, but like the best chocolatiers, Miodownik gets the blend right.” —New York Times Book Review

Geometry, Algebra and Applications: From Mechanics to Cryptography
Springer | Mathematics | June 19 2016 | ISBN-10: 331932084X | 198 pages | pdf | 2.66 mb

Editors: Castrillón López, M., Hernández Encinas, L., Martínez Gadea, P., Rosado María, M.E. (Eds.)

Offers a unique collection of contributions on different topics related to differential geometry and algebra
Encourages further exploration
Appeals to readers interested in the applications of geometry and algebra

This volume collects contributions written by different experts in honor of Prof. Jaime Muñoz Masqué. It covers a wide variety of research topics, from differential geometry to algebra, but particularly focuses on the geometric formulation of variational calculus; geometric mechanics and field theories; symmetries and conservation laws of differential equations, and pseudo-Riemannian geometry of homogeneous spaces. It also discusses algebraic applications to cryptography and number theory. It offers state-of-the-art contributions in the context of current research trends. The final result is a challenging panoramic view of connecting problems that initially appear distant.
