Introduction to Materials Science for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
The interdisciplinary field of materials science involves the discovery and design of new materials, with an emphasis on solids. The intellectual origins of materials science stem from the Age of... More > Enlightenment, when researchers attempted to understand phenomenological observations in metallurgy and mineralogy. Since that period not a whole lot changed, until around the beginning of the 1940s, when materials science began to be more widely recognized as a specific and distinct field of science.< Less
Introduction to Marine Biology for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Marine biology is the scientific study of organisms in the sea. Given that in biology many phyla, families and genera have some species that live in the sea and others that live on land, marine... More > biology classifies species based on the environment rather than on taxonomy. Marine biology differs from marine ecology as marine ecology is focused on how organisms interact with each other and the environment, while biology is the study of the organisms themselves.< Less
Introduction to Logic for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Logic, from the Ancient Greek, originally meaning "the word" or "what is spoken", but coming to mean "thought", "reason", "rule", or... More > "ratio", is generally held to consist of the systematic study of the form of arguments. A valid argument is one where there is a specific relation of logical support between the assumptions of the argument and its conclusion.< Less
Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Inorganic chemistry deals with the synthesis and behavior of inorganic and organometallic compounds. It has applications in every aspect of the chemical industry, including catalysis, materials... More > science, pigments, surfactants, coatings, medications, fuels, agriculture, and the list goes on and on.< Less
Introduction to Group Mathematics and Group Theory for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
In mathematics, a group is an algebraic structure consisting of a set of elements equipped with an operation that combines any two elements to form a third element. The operation satisfies four... More > conditions called the group axioms, namely closure, associativity, identity and invertibility. One of the most familiar examples of a group is the set of integers together with the addition operations. This allows entities with highly diverse mathematical origins in abstract algebra and beyond, to be handled in a flexible way while retaining their essential structural aspects.< Less
Introduction to Fourier Series for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
In mathematics, a Fourier series is a way to represent a wave-like function, mathematically, as the sum of simple sine waves and cosine waves. More formally, it decomposes any periodic function or... More > periodic signal into the sum of a (possibly infinite) set of simple oscillating functions, namely sines and cosines, or equivalently, complex exponentials. The discrete-time Fourier transform is a periodic function, often defined in terms of a Fourier series. The Z-transform, reduces to a Fourier series for the important case |z|=1.< Less
Introduction to Genetic Drift for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Genetic drift, also known as allelic drift or the Sewall Wright effect after biologist Sewall Wright, is the change in the frequency of an existing gene variant (allele) in a population due to random... More > sampling of organisms. The alleles in the offspring are a sample of those in the parents, and chance has a role in determining whether a given individual survives and reproduces. A population's allele frequency is the fraction of the copies of one gene that share a particular form. Genetic drift may cause gene variants to disappear completely and thereby reduce genetic variation.< Less
Introduction to Game Theory for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Game theory is "the study of mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between intelligent rational decision-makers". Game theory is mainly used in economics, political science, and... More > psychology, as well as logic, computer science and biology. Originally, it addressed zero-sum games, in which one person's gains result in losses for the other participants. Today, game theory applies to a wide range of behavioral relations, and is now an umbrella term for the science of logical decision making in humans, animals, and computers.< Less
Introduction to Fundamental Interactions for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
In physics, the fundamental interactions, also known as fundamental forces, are the interactions that do not appear to be reducible to more basic interactions. There are four fundamental... More > interactions: gravitational, electromagnetic, strong nuclear, and weak nuclear. Each one is described mathematically as a field. The gravitational force is modelled as a continuous classical field. The other three, part of the Standard Model of particle physics, are described as discrete quantum fields, and their interactions are each carried by a quantum, which is an elementary particle.< Less
Introduction to Forces for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Philosophers in antiquity used the concept of force in the study of stationary and moving objects and simple machines, but thinkers such as Aristotle and Archimedes retained fundamental errors in... More > understanding force. In part this was due to an incomplete understanding of the sometimes non-obvious force of friction, and a consequently inadequate view of the nature of natural motion. A fundamental error was the belief that a force is required to maintain motion, even at a constant velocity.< Less
