Homotopy Type Theory (hardcover) By Univalent Foundations Project
Hardcover: $21.83
Ships in 6-8 business days.
Homotopy type theory is a new branch of mathematics that combines aspects of several different fields in a surprising way. It is based on a recently discovered connection between homotopy theory and... More > type theory. It touches on topics as seemingly distant as the homotopy groups of spheres, the algorithms for type checking, and the definition of weak ∞-groupoids. Homotopy type theory offers a new “univalent” foundation of mathematics, in which a central role is played by Voevodsky’s univalence axiom and higher inductive types. The present book is intended as a first systematic exposition of the basics of univalent foundations, and a collection of examples of this new style of reasoning — but without requiring the reader to know or learn any formal logic, or to use any computer proof assistant. We believe that univalent foundations will eventually become a viable alternative to set theory as the “implicit foundation” for the unformalized mathematics done by most mathematicians.< Less

A study of the available evidence will challenge you and much of what you assumed to be true. "Now we are discovering that there is a highly-sophisticated black-ops weaponization of free energy technology and it was responsible for the bizarre, low-temperature pulverization of the Twin Towers. Dr. Judy Wood has pieced together the physical evidence and Andrew Johnson has highlighted who is working to silence or smear whom, as the powers that be rush to impede or at least contain the dissemination of these startling findings." - Conrado Salas Cano, M.S. in Physics ** NOTE: Book is sold at cost price and the cover price pays for printing - no money goes to the author or Dr Judy Wood. **< Less

The mechanistic arrows originating from those electrons are colored identically, as are the bonds and/or lone pairs that result from the electron flow. This approach, along with detailed verbal explanations, conveys the narrative of the mechanism.< Less

Research designs of studies of injury causation and evaluation of countermeasures are often inappropriate and mislead analytic and injury control efforts.

A new perspective on life that has not been explored; it offers a way to cure terminal diseases and prolong life beyond 100 years. The human body is similar to an electronic system with parts that... More > only function when proper electronic principles are followed. Rejuvenating dead cells and restoring them to functionality can only be accomplished by channeling neural energy to ailing cells that need energizing and stimulation. Medical researchers are waiting for the cure to come from laboratories and the promise of stem cells, but the cure is in the brain itself. The brain can only be understood by a good background in physics and electronics. Working with the human body on a microscopic level has been ignored by medical researchers; because they lacked a thorough understanding of the human body electrical functions.< Less

The Philosophy of Nature By Michael J. Dodds, O.P.
eBook (ePub): $3.99
Download immediately.
The theories and discoveries of contemporary science, from physics and cosmology to chemistry and biology, point to the need for a philosophy of nature. Science continues to raise questions that... More > exceed the limits of its method. It notices, for instance, a holistic behavior in atoms, molecules and organisms that cannot be explained by a quantitative, reductionistic account of their parts. It finds purpose in biological structures that suggests the presence of a mode of causality beyond quantitative force. In fact, the questions of contemporary science invite a retrieval of aspects of causality that were ignored or rejected in the scientific revolution of Galileo and Newton. This book contributes to that work of retrieval by exploring the account of nature and causality in the philosophy of Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas, not as an historical curiosity, but as a possible resource in addressing the questions of contemporary science through a new philosophy of nature.< Less

More > source code. The book discusses parts of the data model, basic cheminformatics algorithms, chemical file formats, etc. It discusses bits of chemical graph theory, computer representation, etc. But the goal of this book is not to provide an introduction into cheminformatics. However, this book does require a basic chemical education. It assumes that you know what atoms and bonds are, and some basic computer knowledge. This book is about learning how to perform cheminformatics tasks using the CDK. To keep the required knowledge to a minimum, the examples will be pretty verbose.
