Perspectives in computation

)
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Computation is the process of applying a procedure or algorithm to the solution of a mathematical problem. Mathematicians and physicists have been occupied for many decades pondering which problems can be solved by which procedures, and, for those that can be solved, how this can most efficiently be done. In recent years, quantum mechanics has augmented our understanding of the process of computation and of its limitations. Perspectives in Computation covers three broad topics: the computation process and its limitations, the search for computational efficiency, and the role of quantum mechani

Relativity: the special and the general theory; a popular exposition
by
Albert Einstein(
Book
)
8 editions published between 1961 and 2006 in English and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Robert Geroch builds on Einstein's work with commentary that addresses the ideas at the heart of the theory, bringing a modern understanding of relativity to the text. He elucidates how special relativity is a reconciliation of the contradictions between the nature of light and the principle of relativity; he expands on Einstein's treatment of the geometry of spacetime and the fundamental notion of an "event"; he explains in detail, but without technical language, the equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass, a cornerstone of general relativity

Con base en su propio curso que imparte en la Universidad de Chicago, el autor ofrece una introducción a estructuras matemáticas básicas como grupos, espacios vectoriales, espacios topológicos y el espacio de Hilbert. Robert Geroch enfatiza la interrelación entre las distintas estructuras y la unidad de las matemáticas, además de plantear una discusión intuitiva esclarecedora sobre los por qués de pruebas, axiomas y definiciones
