A new kind of science by
Stephen Wolfram(
Book
)
28 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 2,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work presents a series of dramatic discoveries never before made public. Starting from a collection of simple computer experimentsillustrated in the book by striking computer graphicsWolfram shows how their unexpected results force a whole new way of looking at the operation of our universe. Wolfram uses his approach to tackle a remarkable array of fundamental problems in science: from the origin of the Second Law of thermodynamics, to the development of complexity in biology, the computational limitations of mathematics, the possibility of a truly fundamental theory of physics, and the interplay between free will and determinism

79 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 1,592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mathematica has defined the state of the art in technical computing for nearly a decade, and has become a standard in many of the world's leading companies and universities. From simple calculator operations to largescale programming and interactive document preparation, Mathematica is the tool of choice at the frontiers of scientific research, in engineering analysis and modeling, in technical education from high school to graduate school, and wherever quantitative methods are used."BOOK JACKET. "The Mathematica Book is the bestselling book on technical computing ever. This greatly expanded third edition presents for the first time Mathematica Version 3. As both highly readable tutorial and definitive reference, the book covers every aspect of the system. It is essential for all users, as well as for anyone interested in the revolutionary new ideas of Mathematica Version 3."BOOK JACKET

Idea makers : personal perspectives on the lives & ideas of some notable people by
Stephen Wolfram(
Book
)
5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book of thoroughly engaging essays from one of today's most prodigious innovators provides a uniquely personal perspective on the lives and achievements of a selection of intriguing figures from the history of science and technology. Weaving together his immersive interest in people and history with insights gathered from his own experiences, Stephen Wolfram gives an ennobling look at some of the individuals whose ideas and creations have helped shape our world today. From his recollections about working with Richard Feynman to his insights about how Alan Turing's work has unleashed generations of innovation to the true role of Ada Lovelace in the history of computing, Wolfram takes the reader into the minds and lives of great thinkers and creators of the past few centuries and shows how great achievements can arise from dramatically different personalities and life trajectories
