The Physics of Baseball (3rd Edition)
Lowest new price: $5.26
Lowest used price: $2.85
List price: $12.99
Author: Robert K. Adair

Blending scientific fact and sports trivia, Robert Adair examines what a baseball or player in motion doesand why. How fast can a batted ball go? What effect do stitch patterns have on wind resistance? How far does a curve ball break? Who reaches first base faster after a bunt, a right or lefthanded batter? The answers are often surprising  and always illuminating. This newly revised third edition considers recent developments in the science of sport such as the neurophysiology of batting, bat vibration, and the character of the "sweet spot." Faster pitchers, longer hitters, and enclosed stadiums also get a good, hard scientific look to determine their effects on the game. Filled with anecdotes about famous players and incidents, The Physics of Baseball provides fans with fascinating insights into America's favorite pastime.

Newton's Football: The Science Behind America's Game
Lowest new price: $12.90
Lowest used price: $12.89
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.

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

List price: $94.95
Author: R K Pathria

This classic text, first published in 1972, is designed for graduate physics courses in statistical mechanics. The second edition, published in 1996, incorporated three comprehensive chapters on phase transitions and critical phenomena. This third edition includes new sections on BoseEinstein condensation and degenerate Fermi behavior of ultracold atomic gases, and two new chapters on computer simulation methods and the thermodynamics of the early universe. We have also added new sections on chemical and phase equilibrium, and expanded our discussions of correlations and scattering, quantized fields, finitesize effects and the fluctuationdissipation theorem. We hope this new edition will continue to provide new generations of students with a solid training in the methods of statistical physics.

Turbulence: An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers
Lowest new price: $70.60
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.
