Crime and Punishment By Fyodor Dostoyevsky
eBook (ePub): $4.99
Fyodor Dostoevsky is the Russian author famous for exploring psychological and existential depths in his work, most notably in The Brothers Karamazov and this here Crime and Punishment. It focuses on... More > the mental and moral wrangling of Raskolnikov, a poor St. Petersburg ex-student who plans and acts out the murder of a conniving scoundrel - a low life pawn broker who's got some desperately needed cash. Raskolnikov justifies his act by comparing himself to Napoleon, thinking that some murder is committed for a higher purpose. He also sets out to perform good acts with the money to outweigh his crime. Crime and Punishment was written in 6 parts, and it's fascinating to note that the novel has a clear, almost mathematical balance to it. It's said to look like a "flattened X" in its structure, and Raskolnikov changes directly in the middle. If you haven't read any Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment is a murder mystery to end all murder mysteries.< Less

We speak of consciousness, or awareness, or the I, or my inner being, or sentience. It may reach to the deeper metaphysical levels of the universe, but what is its relation to the material world?... More > What is this relation from the perspective of science? Science always builds carefully, slowly, and can start to have a somewhat mathematical character. Does meaning exist outside and independent of the human mind? What is meaning’s relation to time and space? Are there different I’s? Is the idea of death so simple? Apart from obvious fictional parts, the book is valid science, philosophy, and logic. The author’s background includes, over time, having gone into the works of many philosophers. Earlier, the author obtained masters degrees and doctoral work in mathematical logic at the University of California at Berkeley, and in artificial intelligence at Stanford University. (This 2008 book is the same as the 2005 edition except for the description above, covers, text on covers, contact website.)< Less

Proving the Riemann Hypothesis and other simple things By Dirk L. van Krimpen
eBook (PDF): $6.00
Whether you are a student at Princeton University, MIT, or just an enthusiastic science fiction reader trying to get some more information on Wikipedia, you might be interested in the famous Riemann... More > Hypothesis. Well, this book may give you everything you want. Not only because it deals with this mathematical mystery. It also tells you about things like cars, music, time traveling, higher dimensional spaces, and much more. For more than a century scientists have tried to solve the mystery behind the Riemann Hypothesis. But up to today nobody has been able to come up with a definitive proof. This is bad news since large parts of mathematics seem to be built on quicksand as long as the proof of the Riemann Hypothesis is still hanging in the air. A mathematics institute in the US even offers a million dollars to the one solving the mystery. In this book someone actually proves the Riemann Hypothesis. In a completely new graphical way. Believe me; the guys in this story are getting really rich.< Less
