The quark and the jaguar : adventures in the simple and the complex by Murray Gell-Mann ( Book )
30 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and French and held by 1,825 libraries worldwide
From one of the architects of the new science of simplicity and complexity comes a highly personal, unifying vision of the natural world. As a theoretical physicist, Murray Gell-Mann has explored nature at its most fundamental level. His achievements include the 1969 Nobel Prize for work leading up to his discovery of the quark - the basic building block of all atomic nuclei throughout the universe. But Gell-Mann is a man of many intellectual passions, with lifelong interests in fields that seek to understand existence at its most complex: natural history, biological evolution, the history of language, and the study of creative thinking.

Murray Gell-Mann is one of the leading physicists of the world. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1969 for his work on the classification and symmetries of elementary particles, including the approximate SU(3) symmetry of hadrons. His list of publications is impressive; a number of his papers have become landmarks in physics. In 1953, Gell-Mann introduced the strangeness quantum number, conserved by the strong and electromagnetic interactions but not by the weak interaction. In 1954 he and F E Low proposed what was later called the renormalization group. In 1958 he and R P Feynman wrote an important article on the V-A theory of the weak interaction. In 1961 and 1962 he described his ideas about the SU(3) symmetry of hadrons and its violation, leading to the prediction of the [symbol]- particle. In 1964 he proposed the quark picture of hadrons. In 1971 he and H Fritzsch proposed the exactly conserved "color" quantum number and in 1972 they discussed what they later called quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the gauge theory of color. These major publications and many others are collected in this volume, providing physicists with easy access to much of Gell-Mann's work. Some of the articles are concerned with his recollections of the history of elementary particle physics in the third quarter of the twentieth century.

Let there be words ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 54 libraries worldwide
What precisely is language, and how did humans acquire it? In an effort to answer those essential questions, this program journeys back to prehistoric times in search of language's origin. Additional topics include distinguishing features of human communication and what humankind's first utterances may have been. The early evolution and migration of humans is also considered.
Proceedings of the conference in honour of Murray Gell-Mann's 80th birthday : quantum mechanics, elementary particles, quantum cosmology and complexity : Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, 24-26 February 2010 by Elementary Particles, Quantum Cosmology and Complexity Conference on Quantum Mechanics ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
Civilization to colonization ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 34 libraries worldwide
Writing is a relative latecomer to the history of language. This program tracks its emergence in Mesopotamia, China, and Mesoamerica and its spread down through the millennia via conquest -- usually violent, sometimes benign -- and colonization. The creation of creoles and pidgins resulting from the interaction of specific populations is also addressed, and speculation is made about the first things written down.
Birth and death ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
It is predicted that within a century more than half of the world's languages will become extinct, but as languages are lost, new ones emerge naturally or are constructed. This program provides insights into the language life cycle through topics ranging from constructed languages such as Esperanto, to language endangerment and preservation, to the role of globalization in language obsolescence.
Proceedings by Hawaii Topical Conference in Particle Physics ( Book )

Constant change ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
This program examines factors that contributed to the diversification and spread of languages, including early migration, the introduction of agriculture, and genes. Language transfer from mother to child and from one population to the next is also investigated, along with the concept of dialects and commonalities among the world's more than 6,000 languages.
