Amor y matemáticas: El corazón de la realidad oculta by Edward Frenkel, Joan Andreano Weyland

By Edward Frenkel, Joan Andreano Weyland

¿Qué sucedería si en clase de arte te enseñaran a pintar una verja? ¿O que jamás te mostraran una pintura ni te hablaran de los angeles existencia de Van Gogh o Picasso? Pues así es como nos han enseñado las matemáticas. En este fascinante libro, uno de los matemáticos más brillantes del momento nos descubre el lado de las matemáticas que jamás hemos visto, barnizadas con toda l. a. belleza y elegancia de una pieza de arte. Frenkel nos sumerge en una disciplina presente en el corazón de toda materia, que une culturas, tiempo y espacio. Y lo hace a través de dos historias, los angeles de los angeles evolución y los grandes hallazgos de las matemáticas, y, de forma paralela, los angeles de su biografía own, que le llevó de ser rechazado en l. a. facultad de matemáticas de Moscú a convertirse en uno de los matemáticos más importantes del siglo xxi. Pero el libro no es sólo una apasionante historia de superación own teñida de divulgación científica, sino que nos introduce en una nueva forma de pensamiento capaz de enriquecer nuestra vida own y ayudarnos a entender mejor el mundo y el lugar que ocupamos en él. Es una invitación a descubrir los angeles magia del universo escondido de las matemáticas.

Beyond the God Particle

Best physicists speak about the significance of the Higgs Boson, the way forward for particle physics, and the mysteries of the universe but to be unraveled.

On July four, 2012, the long-sought Higgs Boson--aka "the God Particle"--was came upon on the world's greatest particle accelerator, the LHC, in Geneva, Switzerland. On March 14, 2013, physicists at CERN proven it. This elusive subatomic particle kinds a box that permeates the whole universe, developing the hundreds of the hassle-free debris which are the elemental development blocks of every little thing within the recognized world--from viruses to elephants, from atoms to quasars.

Starting the place Nobel Laureate Leon Lederman's bestseller The God Particle left off, this incisive new e-book explains what's subsequent. Lederman and Hill speak about key questions that may occupy physicists for years yet to come:

* Why have been scientists confident that anything just like the "God Particle" needed to exist?
* What new debris, forces, and legislation of physics lie past the "God Particle"?
* What robust new accelerators are actually wanted for the U.S. to recapture a management function in technological know-how and to arrive "beyond the God Particle," reminiscent of Fermilab's deliberate Project-X and the Muon Collider?

utilizing considerate, witty, daily language, the authors convey how all of those exciting questions are major scientists ever deeper into the cloth of nature. Readers of The God Particle won't are looking to pass over this significant sequel.

Technological know-how is the educational magazine of the yank organization for the development of technological know-how and is taken into account one of many world’s such a lot prestigious medical journals. The peer-reviewed magazine, first released in 1880 is circulated weekly and has a print subscriber base of round 130,000. simply because institutional subscriptions and on-line entry serve a bigger viewers, its envisioned readership is a million humans.

Innovating Minds: Rethinking Creativity to Inspire Change

A groundbreaking, clinical method of inventive thinking.

From marketers to academics, engineers to artists, nearly everybody stands to profit from changing into extra inventive. New methods of pondering, making, and imagining have the aptitude to lead to progressive adjustments to either our own lives and society as an entire. And but, the technological know-how in the back of creativity has mostly remained a secret, with few humans conscious of the methods we will optimize our personal inventive and leading edge rules.

Innovating Minds: Rethinking Creativity To motivate switch deals a standpoint, grounded in technological know-how, that permits us to accomplish either person and collective artistic objectives. Wilma Koutstaal and Jonathan Binks draw upon huge examine from mind, behavioral, and organizational sciences to give a distinct five-part "thinking framework" within which principles are constantly subtle and constructed. past clinical study, Innovating Minds additionally describes the typical inventive demanding situations of individuals from all walks of lifestyles, providing insights from dancers, scientists, designers, and designers.

The e-book indicates that creativity is way from a static method; it's steeped with emotion and motivation, related to the dynamic interactions of our minds, brains, and environments. consequently, it demanding situations readers to place its fabric into use via considering activates, creativity cross-checks, and different actions.

Vibrant and fascinating, Innovating Minds finds a different method of harnessing artistic principles and placing them into motion. It bargains a desirable exploration of the technology of creativity besides new and helpful assets for changing into extra cutting edge thinkers and doers.

Program Verification: Fundamental Issues in Computer Science

One of the most crucial difficulties confronting desktop technology is that of constructing a paradigm applicable to the self-discipline. Proponents of formal equipment - similar to John McCarthy, C. A. R. Hoare, and Edgar Dijkstra - have complex the placement that computing is a mathematical job and that desktop technology should still version itself after arithmetic.

12). However, at the present time not a single planet has been found by employing the direct method. 1 were found by the method of observing radial velocity variations. When a planet orbits around its parent star, the two bodies do not stay fixed, but instead orbit around a common center of mass (see Fig. 2a). One has the relation MS aS = MP aP , where MS and MP are the masses, aS and aP the orbital semimajor axes of the star and the planet, respectively. 0052 AU = 780 000 km, which is 10% larger than the solar radius.

The surface slowly cools and over the next 900 years the cloud base sinks down, first slowly but then rapidly (Fig. 10). New oceans form, and within 2000 years attain their old depth. 11 shows the energy of impacts on Earth and the Moon, the black boxes representing terrestrial and the gray ones lunar events. The size of the boxes indicates the uncertainty of the estimated date and impact energy of the events. Ovals mark the energies associated with the formation of the Earth and the Moon. Because the Earth has 81 times the mass and 13 times the cross-section of the Moon, it has a much higher chance (96%) of sustaining an impact by comparison with the lunar surface (4%).

The denuded surface of the Earth is subsequently heated to a temperature of 1500◦ C for about 100 years. In this situation, all previously formed organic compounds or simple life forms would be destroyed. There is the possibility, however, that by such impacts, rocks with traces of life might be ejected into orbit and might re-seed the Earth after the event. In its topmost regions, the atmosphere cools by infrared radiation into space. The surface slowly cools and over the next 900 years the cloud base sinks down, first slowly but then rapidly (Fig.
