Mathematics as a Tool: Tracing New Roles of Mathematics in the Sciences By Johannes Lenhard, Martin Carrier
English | PDF | 2017 | 286 Pages | ISBN : 3319544683 | 3.14 MB

This book puts forward a new role for mathematics in the natural sciences. In the traditional understanding, a strong viewpoint is advocated, on the one hand, according to which mathematics is used for truthfully expressing laws of nature and thus for rendering the rational structure of the world. In a weaker understanding, many deny that these fundamental laws are of an essentially mathematical character, and suggest that mathematics is merely a convenient tool for systematizing observational knowledge.

Diffusive Spreading in Nature, Technology and Society

Diffusive Spreading in Nature, Technology and Society By Armin Bunde
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 416 Pages | ISBN : 3319677977 | 25.1 MB

This book deals with randomly moving objects and their spreading. The objects considered are particles like atoms and molecules, but also living beings such as humans, animals, plants, bacteria and even abstract entities like ideas, rumors, information, innovations and linguistic features. The book explores and communicates the laws behind these movements and reports about astonishing similarities and very specific features typical of the given object under considerations.

The History of the Priority Di∫pute between Newton and Leibniz: Mathematics in History and Culture

The History of the Priority Di∫pute between Newton and Leibniz: Mathematics in History and Culture By Thomas Sonar
English | PDF | 2018 | 566 Pages | ISBN : 3319725610 | 87.75 MB

This book provides a thrilling history of the famous priority dispute between Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz and Isaac Newton, presenting the episode for the first time in the context of cultural history. It introduces readers to the background of the dispute, details its escalation, and discusses the aftermath of the big divide, which extended well into rThe Early Challengesnd the story is very intelligibly explained – an approach that offers general readers interested in the history of sciences and mathematics a window into the world of these two giants in their field.

Our Oldest Task: Making Sense of Our Place in Nature

Our Oldest Task: Making Sense of Our Place in Nature by Eric T. Freyfogle
English | August 28th, 2017 | ASIN: B074L22JP9, ISBN: 022632639X | 240 pages | EPUB | 0.83 MB

“This is a book about nature and culture,” Eric T. Freyfogle writes, “about our place and plight on earth, and the nagging challenges we face in living on it in ways that might endure.” Challenges, he says, we are clearly failing to meet. Harking back to a key phrase from the essays of eminent American conservationist Aldo Leopold, Our Oldest Task spins together lessons from history and philosophy, the life sciences and politics, economics and cultural studies in a personal, erudite quest to understand how we might live on—and in accord with—the land.
