Die Evolution biologischer Makrostrukturen

Ein Fotoshooting

Author: Georg Glaeser,Werner Nachtigall

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

ISBN: 3662578263

Category: Science

Page: 171

Mit spektakulären, großformatigen Fotos, die durch fundierte informative Erklärungstexte ergänzt werden, entführen Sie Georg Glaeser und Werner Nachtigall in die spannende Welt der kleinen Strukturen in der Natur, an denen eine Funktion erkennbar ist. Der Band macht neugierig auf diese verborgene Welt, die nur wenige im Detail kennen und stellt eine Vielzahl faszinierender Mechanismen vor, die die Evolution hervorgebracht hat: von den blitzschnellen „tail flips“ der Tanzgarnele über "Haftpinsel" bei Geckofüßen bis hin zu technischen Anwendungen biologischer Strukturen im Bereich der Bionik. Das Buch kann in beliebiger Reihenfolge, Doppelseite für Doppelseite, gelesen werden. Querverweise sorgen für bequemes Umspringen auf andere Abschnitte. Die Textpassagen sind zumeist unabhängig voneinander und besprechen besondere Highlights im evolutionären Prozess. Ergänzt wird das Buch durch Literaturhinweise.

Geometrie und ihre Anwendungen in Kunst, Natur und Technik

Author: Georg Glaeser

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

ISBN: 364241852X

Category: Mathematics

Die „Geometrie und ihre Anwendungen“ ist für Personen geschrieben, die von relativ einfachen Problemen der ebenen Geometrie bis hin zu schwierigeren Aufgaben der Raumgeometrie Interesse an geometrischen Zusammenhängen haben. Ähnlich wie beim „mathematischen Werkzeugkasten“ stehen Anwendungen aus verschiedenen Disziplinen wie dem Ingenieurwesen, der Biologie, Physik, Astronomie, Geografie, Fotografie, Kunstgeschichte, ja sogar der Musik im Vordergrund. Die Anwendungsbeispiele veranschaulichen wichtige Begriffe der Geometrie wie Normalprojektion und Zentralprojektion, Krümmung von Kurven und Flächen, der Geometrie der Bewegung und sogar der Geometrie nichteuklidischer Räume. Stets hat die Raumvorstellung Vorrang. Das Buch kann daher auch von Personen ohne spezielle mathematische Vorbildung gelesen werden. Die 3. Auflage ist um gut 60 Seiten erweitert und enthält zahlreiche neue Anwendungen mit hochwertigen Grafiken.

Der mathematische Werkzeugkasten wendet sich an alle, die eine Standard- Mathematikausbildung in der Schule hinter sich haben und ihr mathematisches Verständnis vertiefen wollen. Durch eine Vielzahl von Anwendungsbeispielen aus den verschiedensten Disziplinen wie Biologie, Physik, Chemie, Astronomie, Geografie, ja sogar der Musik, werden algebraische Gleichungen, Proportionen, Trigonometrie, Vektorrechnung und Infinitesimalrechnung anschaulich vermittelt. Insofern ist das Buch eine gute Hilfe für angehende Studenten verschiedenster Studienrichtungen, die fundierteres Mathematikwissen voraussetzen. Wegen der fächerübergreifenden Anwendungen eignet sich das Werk aber auch als Fundgrube für engagierte Mathematiklehrer, welche motivierende Beispiele für die diversen Teilgebiete der Mathematik suchen. Das Buch ist so aufgebaut, dass man an verschiedenen Stellen „einsteigen“ kann. Querverweise bringen zugeordnete Abschnitte und Beispiele schnell in Zusammenhang. Die vierte, durchgängig vierfarbige Auflage ist vollständig durchgesehen und um viele Anwendungsbeispiele erweitert.

The Analytic Art

Author: François Viète,T. Richard Witmer

Publisher: Courier Corporation

ISBN: 0486453480

Category: Mathematics

Page: 450

View: 8254

This historic work consists of several treatises that developed the first consistent, coherent, and systematic conception of algebraic equations. Originally published in 1591, it pioneered the notion of using symbols of one kind (vowels) for unknowns and of another kind (consonants) for known quantities, thus streamlining the solution of equations. Francois Viète (1540-1603), a lawyer at the court of King Henry II in Tours and Paris, wrote several treatises that are known collectively as The Analytic Art. His novel approach to the study of algebra developed the earliest articulated theory of equations, allowing not only flexibility and generality in solving linear and quadratic equations, but also something completely new—a clear analysis of the relationship between the forms of the solutions and the values of the coefficients of the original equation. Viète regarded his contribution as developing a "systematic way of thinking" leading to general solutions, rather than just a "bag of tricks" to solve specific problems. These essays demonstrate his method of applying his own ideas to existing usage in ways that led to clear formulation and solution of equations.

Learn to Program with Scratch

Scratch is a fun, free, beginner-friendly programming environment where you connect blocks of code to build programs. While most famously used to introduce kids to programming, Scratch can make computer science approachable for people of any age. Rather than type countless lines of code in a cryptic programming language, why not use colorful command blocks and cartoon sprites to create powerful scripts? In Learn to Program with Scratch, author Majed Marji uses Scratch to explain the concepts essential to solving real-world programming problems. The labeled, color-coded blocks plainly show each logical step in a given script, and with a single click, you can even test any part of your script to check your logic. You’ll learn how to: * Harness the power of repeat loops and recursion * Use if/else statements and logical operators to make decisions * Store data in variables and lists to use later in your program * Read, store, and manipulate user input * Implement key computer science algorithms like a linear search and bubble sort Hands-on projects will challenge you to create an Ohm’s law simulator, draw intricate patterns, program sprites to mimic line-following robots, create arcade-style games, and more! Each chapter is packed with detailed explanations, annotated illustrations, guided examples, lots of color, and plenty of exercises to help the lessons stick. Learn to Program with Scratch is the perfect place to start your computer science journey, painlessly.

A description of 148 algorithms fundamental to number-theoretic computations, in particular for computations related to algebraic number theory, elliptic curves, primality testing and factoring. The first seven chapters guide readers to the heart of current research in computational algebraic number theory, including recent algorithms for computing class groups and units, as well as elliptic curve computations, while the last three chapters survey factoring and primality testing methods, including a detailed description of the number field sieve algorithm. The whole is rounded off with a description of available computer packages and some useful tables, backed by numerous exercises. Written by an authority in the field, and one with great practical and teaching experience, this is certain to become the standard and indispensable reference on the subject.

Warum arbeiten wir uns eigentlich zu Tode? Haben wir nichts Besseres zu tun? Und ob! - sagt Timothy Ferriss. Der junge Unternehmer war lange Workaholic mit 80-Stunden-Woche. Doch dann erfand er MBA- Management by Absence- und ist seitdem freier, reicher, glücklicher. Mit viel Humor, provokanten Denkanstößen und erprobten Tipps erklärt Ferriss, wie sich die 4-Stunden-Woche bei vollem Lohnausgleich verwirklichen lässt. Der Wegweiser für eine Flucht aus dem Hamsterrad und ein Manifest für eine neue Gewichtung zwischen Leben und Arbeiten.
