Gaia Theory
Forty years ago, freelance scientist James Lovelock got a job with NASA to detect life on Mars. Lovelock found that you didn't have to go to Mars to know it is lifeless and so was born Gaia Theory. Gaia says that the sum of earth's living systems behave like a controlling 'super-organism' that tweaks the chemistry of the ocean and the atmosphere to keep conditions just the way it likes. This raises two important questions: where do the humans fit into this scheme and would Gaia be better off without us?

Galaxies For Intelligently Designed Minds (Not For ‘Standard’ Model Dummies)
'Galaxies For Intelligently Designed Minds...' lambasts the ‘Standard’ Model of Cosmology, as well as the western scientific establishment and its goals, which is a hallmark of Torie’s work in the last couple years. In addition, it offers an unmatched and highly original possible explanation of the way the solar system and spiral galaxies could work, describing intelligent mechanisms and organization, which could change completely the way we understand the universe. The book proposes that the ‘force’ of gravity is not necessary to reach the gravitational balance we observe in the universe, making redundant with it the need for any expansion, inflation or dark matter. It o...

Galaxy
Each night, we are able to gaze up at the night sky and look at the thousands of stars that stretch to the end of our individual horizons. But the stars we see are only those that make up our own Milky Way galaxy—but one of hundreds of billions in the whole of the universe, each separated&#xa0; by inconceivably huge tracts of empty space. In this book, astronomer James Geach tells the rich stories of both the evolution of galaxies and our ability to observe them, offering a fascinating history of how we’ve come to realize humanity’s tiny place in the vast universe.<br /><br />Taking us on a compelling tour of the state-of-the-art science involved in mapping the infinite, ...

Galileo
Galileo Galilei stabilisce i capisaldi della fisica moderna, frutto della matematica combinata con il metodo sperimentale. Abbandona l’autorità dei testi aristotelici e la loro interpretazione, per concentrarsi sulla sperimentazione e sulla riproducibilità degli esperimenti. Al posto dell’osservazione della natura, introduce l’ambiente artificiale del laboratorio dove, in condizioni controllate, compie prove su prove per estrarre dal caos dei fenomeni concetti e formule universali. Nasce così la scoperta che i gravi cadono tutti con la stessa accelerazione, indipendentemente dalla loro massa e natura, uno dei suoi contributi più noti; e poi il concetto di inerzia, un abbo...

Galileo and the Equations of Motion
This book is intended as a historical and critical study on the origin of the equations of motion as established in Newton's Principia. The central question that it aims to answer is whether it is indeed correct to ascribe to Galileo the inertia principle and the law of falling bodies. In order to accomplish this task, the study begins by considering theories on the motion of bodies from classical antiquity, and especially those of Aristotle. The theories developed during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance are then reviewed, with careful analysis of the contributions of, for example, the Merton and Parisian Schools and Galileo’s immediate predecessors, Tartaglia and Bene...

Galileo's Finger
Galileo&#39;s Finger is quite simply the best introduction to modern scientific concepts that has ever been written. Taking its cue from C.P. Snow&#39;s remark that &#39;not knowing the second law of thermodynamics is like never having read a work by Shakespeare&#39;, by reading this book you will become literate in modern science. The ten great ideas it introduces with brilliant imagery range from natural selection through quantum theory to curved spacetime. Never before<br/> have these core ideas of modern civilization been presented in so accessible and engaging a manner.

Galileo's Idol
<i>Galileo’s Idol</i> offers a vivid depiction of Galileo’s friend, student, and patron, Gianfrancesco Sagredo (1571–1620). Sagredo’s life, which has never before been studied in depth, brings to light the inextricable relationship between the production, distribution, and reception of political information and scientific knowledge.<br /><br />Nick Wilding uses as wide a variety of sources as possible—paintings, ornamental woodcuts, epistolary hoaxes, intercepted letters, murder case files, and others—to challenge the picture of early modern science as pious, serious, and ecumenical. Through his analysis of the figure of Sagredo, Wilding offers a fresh perspective on Gali...

Galileo's Instruments of Credit
In six short years, Galileo Galilei went from being a somewhat obscure mathematics professor running a student boarding house in Padua to a star in the court of Florence to the recipient of dangerous attention from the Inquisition for his support of Copernicanism. In that brief period, Galileo made a series of astronomical discoveries that reshaped the debate over the physical nature of the heavens: he deeply modified the practices and status of astronomy with the introduction of the telescope and pictorial evidence, proposed a radical reconfiguration of the relationship between theology and astronomy, and transformed himself from university mathematician into court philo...

Game-Theoretic Learning and Distributed Optimization in Memoryless Multi-Agent Systems
This book presents new efficient methods for optimization in realistic large-scale, multi-agent systems. These methods do not require the agents to have the full information about the system, but instead allow them to make their local decisions based only on the local information, possibly obtained during scommunication with their local neighbors. The book, primarily aimed at researchers in optimization and control, considers three different information settings in multi-agent systems: oracle-based, communication-based, and payoff-based. For each of these information types, an efficient optimization algorithm is developed, which leads the system to an optimal state. The o...

Garbage In The Cities
As recently as the 1880s, most American cities had no effective means of collecting and removing the mountains of garbage, refuse, and manure-over a thousand tons a day in New York City alone-that clogged streets and overwhelmed the senses of residents. In his landmark study, <i>Garbage in the Cities</i>, Martin Melosi offered the first history of efforts begun in the Progressive Era to clean up this mess.<br /><br />Since it was first published, <i>Garbage in the Cities</i> has remained one of the best historical treatments of the subject. This thoroughly revised and updated edition includes two new chapters that expand the discussion of developments since World War I. I...
