Why intelligent design fails : a scientific critique of the new creationism by Matt Young( )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 2,607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why Intelligent Design Fails assembles a team of physicists, biologists, computer scientists, mathematicians, and archaeologists to examine intelligent design from a scientific perspective. Contributors take intelligent design's two most famous claims - irreducible complexity and information-based arguments - and show that neither challenges Darwinian evolution."--Jacket
Why evolution works (and creationism fails) by Matt Young( )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2,387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why Evolution Works (and Creationism Fails) is an impassioned argument in favor of science - primarily the theory of evolution - and against creationism. Focusing on what other books omit, how science works and how pseudoscience works, Matt Young and Paul K. Strode demonstrate the futility of 'scientific' creationism, debunking the notion of intelligent design and other arguments that show evolution could not have produced life in its present form."--Back cover
Optics and lasers : including fibers and optical waveguides by Matt Young( Book )

63 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Optics and Lasers is an introduction to engineering and applied optics, including not only elementary ray and wave optics, but also lasers, holography, coherence, fibers, and optical waveguides. It stresses physical principles, applications, and instrumentation. The textbook will be most useful to the practicing engineer or experimental scientist, graduate student, or advanced undergraduate. It contains more than enough material from which to select the core of an introductory optics course and sufficient to form the bulk of a more advanced course
The technical writer's handbook : writing with style and clarity by Matt Young( Book )

26 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Divided into two parts, the first part is an introduction to technical and report writing; it provides a prescription for writing. The second part contains entries on grammar, style, and organization, as well as entries on topics such as common errors, resume writing, metric units, jargon, conference proceedings, figures, tables and slides
Optics and lasers : an engineering physics approach by Matt Young( Book )

26 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of optics has changed greatly in the past dozen years or so. Partly because of the applied or engineering nature of much of modern optics, there is need for a practical text that surveys the entire field. Such a book should not be a classical-optics text, but, rather, it should be strong on principles, applications and instrumentation, on lasers, holography and coherent light. On the other hand, it should concern itself relatively little with such admittedly interesting phenomena as the formation of the rainbow or the precise deter­ mination of the speed of light. My purpose, therefore, has been to write an up-to-date textbook that surveys applied or engineering optics, including lasers and certain other areas that might be called modern optics. I have attempted to treat each topic in sufficient depth to give it considerable engineering value, while keeping it as free of unnecessary mathematical detail as possible. Because I have surveyed applied optics in a very general way (including much more than I would attempt to incorporate into any single college course), this book should be a useful handbook for the practicing physicist or engineer who works from time to time with optics. Any of the material is appropriate to an introductory undergraduate course in optics; the work as a whole will be useful to the graduate student or applied scientist with scant background in optics
Optics and lasers : including fibers and integrated optics by Matt Young( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and German and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since this book was first published in 1977, the major advances in optics have been the maturing of optical communications and the development of in­ tegrated optics. When I was offered the opportunity to prepare a revised edi­ tion, I decided to add chapters on these disciplines to the original work. This book, which was begun long before I joined the National Bureau of Stand­ ards, remains a private venture, written, so to speak, in my basement; there is no official connection with the National Bureau of Standards. I have also taken the opportunity to make some corrections and to add several short sections within the body of the earlier text. The most important of these changes include a discussion of group velocity, phase velocity and group index of refraction to anticipate the need for these concepts in Chap. 9; revision of the section on coherent-optical processing, including what is essen­ tially an optical derivation of the Fourier series; addition of the converging­ beam optical processor; and addition of a section on laser safety. The bulk of the new material comprises three chapters. The first is Chap. 9, "Optical Waveguides". In this chapter, I develop optical waveguide theory primarily on the basis of ray optics and interference in planar waveguides

Volcanoes & extreme landscapes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volcanoes have always both fascinated and frightened mankind. Often causing massive loss of life, they've been worshipped as gods, and feared as homes for the devil. They emit huge amounts of poison gas and ash, yet provided some of the most fertile land on Earth. In the Globe Trekker Special, the travelers, explore the world's most spectacular volcanoes, travelling from the heart of Europe, across the Atlantic and Caribbean, to the deadly Pacific Ring of Fire

Captain Cook : obsession and discovery by Richard Howard( Visual )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I had ambition not only to go farther than any man had been before, but as far as it was possible for a man to go. James Cook Geographer, historical consultant and bestselling author Vanessa Collingridge searches for the man behind the legend as she traces his story in a series that is part biography, part travelogue and completely enthralling. A hero to some, a villain to others, this son of an English farm labourer described more of the globe than any other man in three incredible voyages. Discover the man and his times. Step back into the 18th century to experience what it was like to navigate uncharted and unknown waters in search of a legendary Great Southern Continent and then a Northwest Passage through the Arctic ice; as well as to be among the first Europeans to visit exotic Pacific islands like Tahiti. Witness Cook's discovery of Hawaii. Sail the uncharted coast of New Zealand, proving it isn't part of thegreat south continent'. Land with Captain Cook at Botany Bay as he claims Australia for king and country, a discovery' that goes unquestioned for over a century. Meet the men of the Endeavour, Resolution, Adventure and Discovery, and learn what sea-life was like for the sailors and scientists who made it all possible, including the celebrated gentleman-botanist Joseph Banks and a young naval officer named William Bligh. It's a tale of obsession and discovery, respect and brutality, courage and madness, from the pomp and splendour of the royal courts of England to death on a beach on the far side of the world.
