Great Physicists: The Life and Times of Leading Physicists from Galileo to Hawking
Great Physicists: The Life and Times of Leading Physicists from Galileo to Hawking

Here is a lively history of modern physics, as seen through the lives of thirty men and women from the pantheon of physics.

William H. Cropper vividly portrays the life and accomplishments of such giants as Galileo and Isaac Newton, Marie Curie and Ernest Rutherford, Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr, right up to contemporary figures...

Algorithms for Image Processing and Computer Vision
Algorithms for Image Processing and Computer Vision

Humans still obtain the vast majority of their sensory input through their visual system, and an enormous effort has been made to artificially enhance this sense. Eyeglasses, binoculars, telescopes, radar, infrared sensors, and photomultipliers all function to improve our view of the world and the universe. We even have telescopes in orbit...

Geometric Optics: Theory and Design of Astronomical Optical Systems Using Mathematica®
Geometric Optics: Theory and Design of Astronomical Optical Systems Using Mathematica®

This book—unique in the literature—provides readers with the mathematical background needed to design many of the optical combinations that are used in astronomical telescopes and cameras. The results presented in the work were obtained by using a different approach to third-order aberration theory as well as the extensive use of the...

The Science and Art of Using Telescopes (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
The Science and Art of Using Telescopes (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Amateur astronomers have to start somewhere. Most begin by buying a modest astronomical telescope and getting to know the night sky. After a while, many want to move on to the next stage, but this can be problematic. The magazines advertise a mass of commercially-made equipment – some of it very expensive – which can represent a major...
Software Systems for Astronomy (SpringerBriefs in Astronomy)
Software Systems for Astronomy (SpringerBriefs in Astronomy)

This book covers the use and development of software for astronomy. It describes the control systems used to point the telescope and operate its cameras and spectrographs, as well as the web-based tools used to plan those observations. In addition, the book also covers the analysis and archiving of astronomical data once it has been acquired....

The Essential Galileo
The Essential Galileo
Edited and translated by Maurice A. Finocchiaro, an international authority on Galileo, this collection makes available to scholars and students an excellent and extensive selection of Galileo's key works from his early career to the end of his life - some in toto and some represented by key selections. It presents not only Galileo's most famous...

Schrodinger's Rabbits: The Many Worlds of Quantum
Schrodinger's Rabbits: The Many Worlds of Quantum
"Usually quantum fuzziness appears only in ultratiny arenas, on a scale smaller than a golf ball to the degree that the golf ball is smaller than Texas. But nowadays, in labs around the world, scientists are plotting to release quantum weirdness from its subatomic prison. Before too long, quantum news won't be just for the science section...
How We See the Sky: A Naked-Eye Tour of Day and Night
How We See the Sky: A Naked-Eye Tour of Day and Night

Gazing up at the heavens from our backyards or a nearby field, most of us see an undifferentiated mess of stars—if, that is, we can see anything at all through the glow of light pollution. Today’s casual observer knows far less about the sky than did our ancestors, who depended on the sun and the moon to tell them the...

Understanding Complex Datasets: Data Mining with Matrix Decompositions
Understanding Complex Datasets: Data Mining with Matrix Decompositions
Many data-mining algorithms were developed for the world of business, for example for customer relationship management. The datasets in this environment, although large, are simple in the sense that a customer either did or did not buy three widgets, or did or did not fly from Chicago to Albuquerque.

In contrast,

Real Astronomy with Small Telescopes: Step-by-Step Activities for Discovery (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Real Astronomy with Small Telescopes: Step-by-Step Activities for Discovery (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
From the reviews:

"The dozens of projects collected here are a combination of observations suitable for current research (such as classifying sun-spots or monitoring binary stars) and recreating classic experiments (such as determining the speed of light by timing Jupiter’s moons). … Besides ample nuggets for science projects,...
