Axioms By Robert G. Brown
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Download immediately.
Axioms is "the last book on metaphysical philosophy you'll ever need to read". It uses the latest methods of bayesian analysis to prove that philosophy is bullshit. Instead of being the... More > end of all reason, this proves to be the proper beginning. It establishes once and for all that the most important free choice any human makes is their choice of what to believe, their axioms. Axioms are, in fact, the basis of all understanding, all knowing, but themselves cannot be known, only believed. The book connects these conclusions of western mathematical philosophy with the heart eastern philosophy in the form of Zen Buddhism, with axiomatic set theory, with Hume's skepticism, and more. It is written to be fun to read and accessible, even as it presents its core arguments fairly rigorously.< Less

Classical Electrodynamics By Robert G. Brown
eBook (PDF): $5.00
Download immediately.
This is a set of lecture notes used for my second semester graduate course in Electrodynamics (Physics 319) at Duke. They are generally used by students as a supplement to J. D. Jackson's... More > Electrodynamics text. However, the notes can also stand alone for students interested in learning advanced classical electrodynamics, or supplement other texts. It is presumed that students have completed a one semester graduate level (or advanced undergrad) course in E&M through Maxwell's equations (e.g. Jackson's chapter 6) or thereabouts. Eventually I'll extend these notes to cover both semesters in an integrated way and will at the same time make them considerably more independent as a textbook. Note Well! These notes are actively in use and contain errors great and small. Let the potential buyer be warned - you get the current (and quite cheap by textbook standards) snapshot, no money back guarantee!< Less
