List price: $26.00
Author: Allen St. John

In the bestselling tradition of Freakonomics and Scorecasting comes a clever and accessible look at the big ideas underlying the science of football. Did you hear the one about the MacArthur genius physicist and the NFL coach? It's not a joke. It's actually an innovative way to understand chaos theory, and the remarkable complexity of modern professional football. In Newton's Football, journalist and New York Times bestselling author Allen St. John and TED talker and former Yale professor Ainissa Ramirez explore the unexpected science behind America's Game. Whether it's Jerry Rice finding the common ground between quantum physics and the West Coast offense or an Ivy League biologist explainingat a granular levelexactly how a Big Mac morphs into an outside linebacker, Newton's Football illuminates footballand sciencethrough funny, insightful stories told by some of the world's sharpest minds. With a cleareyed empirical approachand an exuberant affection for the gameSt. John and Ramirez address topics that have long beguiled scientists and football fans alike, including: * the unlikely evolution of the football (or, as they put it, "The Divine Random Bounce of the Prolate Spheroid") * what Vince Lombardi has in common with Isaac Newton * how the hardwired behavior of monkeys can explain a head coach's reluctance to go for it on fourthdown * why a gruesome elevator accident jumpstarted the evolution of placekicking * how Teddy Roosevelt saved football using the same behavioral science concept that Dreamworks would use to save Shrek * why woodpeckers don't get concussions * how better helmets actually made the game more dangerous Every Sunday the NFL shares a secret with only its savviest fans: The game isn't just a clash of bodies, it's a clash of ideas. The greatest minds in football have always possessed an instinctual grasp of science, understanding the big ideas and gritty realities that inform the game's rich past, as well as its increasingly uncertain future. Blending smart reporting, counterintuitive creativity, and compelling narrative, Newton's Football takes gridiron analysis to the next level, giving fans a book that entertains, enlightens, and explains the game anew.

Sync: How Order Emerges From Chaos In the Universe, Nature, and Daily Life
Lowest new price: $9.45
Lowest used price: $7.48
List price: $18.00
Author: Steven H. Strogatz

The tendency to synchronize may be the most mysterious and pervasive drive in all of nature. It has intrigued some of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century, including Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman, Norbert Wiener, Brian Josephson, and Arthur Winfree.
At once elegant and riveting, Sync tells the story of the dawn of a new science. Steven Strogatz, a leading mathematician in the fields of chaos and complexity theory, explains how enormous systems can synchronize themselves, from the electrons in a superconductor to the pacemaker cells in our hearts. He shows that although these phenomena might seem unrelated on the surface, at a deeper level there is a connection, forged by the unifying power of mathematics.

Turbulence: An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers
Lowest new price: $49.80
Lowest used price: $83.74
List price: $105.00
Author: P. A. Davidson

Based on a course by the author at the University of Cambridge, this comprehensive text on turbulence and fluid dynamics is aimed at year 4 undergraduates and graduates in applied mathematics, physics and engineering and provides an ideal reference for industry professionals and researchers. It bridges the gap between elementary accounts of turbulence found in undergraduate texts and more rigorous accounts given in monographs on the subject. Containing exercises and many examples, the author combines the maximum of physical insight with the minimum of mathematical detail where possible. The text is highly illustrated throughout, and includes color plates; all required mathematical techniques are covered in extensive appendices. The text is divided into three parts: Part I consists of a traditional introduction to the classical aspects of turbulence, the nature of turbulence, and the equations of fluid mechanics. Mathematics is kept to a minimum, presupposing only an elementary knowledge of fluid mechanics and statistics. Part II tackles the problem of homogeneous turbulence with a focus on numerical methods. Part III covers certain special topics rarely discussed in introductory texts. Many geophysical and astrophysical flows are dominated by the effects of body forces, such as buoyancy, Coriolis and Lorentz forces. Moreover, certain largescale flows are approximately twodimensional and this has led to a concerted investigation of twodimensional turbulence over the last few years. Both the influence of body forces and twodimensional turbulence are discussed.

A Short Bright Flash: Augustin Fresnel and the Birth of the Modern Lighthouse
Lowest new price: $15.73
Lowest used price: $14.45
List price: $25.95
Author: Theresa Levitt
Brand: Brand: W. W. Norton Company

How a scientific outsider came up with a revolutionary theory of light and saved untold numbers of lives. Augustin Fresnel (1788–1827) shocked the scientific elite with his unique understanding of the physics of light. The lens he invented was a brilliant feat of engineering that made lighthouses blaze many times brighter, farther, and more efficiently. Battling the establishment, his own poor health, and the limited technology of the time, Fresnel was able to achieve his goal of illuminating the entire French coast. At first, the British sought to outdo the new Fresnelequipped lighthouses as a matter of national pride. Americans, too, resisted abandoning their primitive lamps, but the superiority of the Fresnel lens could not be denied for long. Soon, from Dunkirk to Saigon, shores were brightened with it. The Fresnel legacy played an important role in geopolitical events, including the American Civil War. No sooner were Fresnel lenses finally installed along U.S. shores than they were drafted: the Union blockaded the Confederate coast; the Confederacy set about thwarting it by dismantling and hiding or destroying the powerful new lights. Levitt’s scientific and historical account, rich in anecdote and personality, brings to life the fascinating untold story of Augustin Fresnel and his powerful invention. 60 illustrations, 6 maps

Lowest used price: $89.60
List price: $98.95
Author: Allan F. Bower

Modern computer simulations make stress analysis easy. As they continue to replace classical mathematical methods of analysis, these software programs require users to have a solid understanding of the fundamental principles on which they are based. Develop Intuitive Ability to Identify and Avoid Physically Meaningless Predictions Applied Mechanics of Solids is a powerful tool for understanding how to take advantage of these revolutionary computer advances in the field of solid mechanics. Beginning with a description of the physical and mathematical laws that govern deformation in solids, the text presents modern constitutive equations, as well as analytical and computational methods of stress analysis and fracture mechanics. It also addresses the nonlinear theory of deformable rods, membranes, plates, and shells, and solutions to important boundary and initial value problems in solid mechanics. The author uses the stepbystep manner of a blackboard lecture to explain problem solving methods, often providing the solution to a problem before its derivation is presented. This format will be useful for practicing engineers and scientists who need a quick review of some aspect of solid mechanics, as well as for instructors and students. Select and Combine Topics Using SelfContained Modules and Subsections Borrowing from the classical literature on linear elasticity, plasticity, and structural mechanics, this book:  Introduces concepts, analytical techniques, and numerical methods used to analyze deformation, stress, and failure in materials or components
 Discusses the use of finite element software for stress analysis
 Assesses simple analytical solutions to explain how to set up properly posed boundary and initialvalue problems
 Provides an understanding of algorithms implemented in software code
Complemented by the author’s website, which features problem sets and sample code for self study, this book offers a crucial overview of problem solving for solid mechanics.

Geology of Earthquakes
Lowest new price: $125.00
Lowest used price: $60.00
List price: $150.95
Author: Robert S. Yeats

The first modern treatment of purposes, methods, and principles of the geological investigation of earthquakes draws upon examples from many seismically active regions of the globe, including China, Japan, the Mediterranean countries, the U.S., and New Zealand. The Geology of Earthquakes will be useful to engineers, geophysicists, and planners, in addition to geologists, and will be an aid to the geotechnical community as well as to graduate and advanced undergraduate students. The first several chapters of the book include introductions to plate tectonics, structural geology, seismic waves, geodesy, Quaternary geochronological methods, and tectonic geomorphology. These serve as a common interdisciplinary background for the second half of the text, which divides the discussion of earthquakes according to tectonic environment: strikeslip, divergent, and convergent. Earthquake environments from the globe are amply illustrated with photographs, maps, and cross sections. Case histories of recent, wellstudied earthquakes demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of earthquake science. Personal vignettes of early pioneers such as Charles Darwin, G.K. Gilbert, Bunjiro Koto, and Alexander McKay illustrate early historical milestones in earthquake geology. The final chapters of the book are devoted to secondary effects such as liquefaction, seismically induced landslides and tsunamis, and to the use of earthquake geology in earthquake hazard assessment. A glossary of terms, an extensive bibliography, and a comprehensive reference table of more than 300 historical earthquakes accompanied by surface faulting appear at the end of the text.
