Just Six Numbers

Just Six Numbers by Martin Rees, published by The Softback Review, 2000, 173 pages paperback
ISBN 0297842978

Written by one of the most brilliant and visionary living cosmologists. This book is indispensable reading for anyone who seeks to understand the deep forces that shape everything.

How did a single 'genesis event' create billions of galaxies, black holes, stars and planets? How did atoms assemble - here on Earth, and perhaps on other worlds - into living beings intricate enough to ponder their origins? This book describes the recent avalanche of discoveries about the universe's fundamental laws, and the deep connections that exist between stars and atoms - the cosmos and the microscopic world. Just six numbers, imprinted in the 'big bang', determine the essence of our world, and this book devotes one chapter to explaining each.

Elementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems

Elementary Differential Equations with Boundary
Value Problems by Werner Kohler & Lee Johnson, published by Pearson, 2004
862 pages hardback, ISBN 0321121643

Elementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems by Werner E. Kohler and Lee W. Johnson integrates the underlying theory, the solution procedures, and the numerical/computational aspects of differential equations in a seamless way. For example, whenever a new type of problem is introduced (such as first-order equations, higher-order equations, systems of differential equations, etc.) the text begins with the basic existence-uniqueness theory. This provides the student the necessary framework to understand and solve differential equations. Theory is presented as simply as possible with an emphasis on how to use it. The Table of Contents is comprehensive and allows flexibility for instructors.

Numerical Methods for Delay Differential Equations

Numerical Methods for Delay Differential Equations by Alfredo Bellen & Marino Zennaro, published by Oxford Science Publications, 2013, 410 pages paperback, ISBN 978-0199671373

The main purpose of the book is to introduce the readers to the numerical integration of the Cauchy problem for delay differential equations (DDEs). Peculiarities and differences that DDEs exhibit with respect to ordinary differential equations are preliminarily outlined by numerous examples illustrating some unexpected, and often surprising, behaviours of the analytical and numerical solutions. A list of available codes is provided, and illustrative examples, pseudo-codes and numerical experiments are included throughout the book.
