The Shaggy Steed of Physics: Mathematical Beauty in the Physical World / Edition 1by David Oliver
Pub. Date: 06/28/1994
Publisher: Springer-Verlag New York, LLC
The underlying unity of nature is examined through this book's demonstration that the same principles (for example, symmetry and instability) are at work at all levels, from the subatomic to the astronomical. A spirited companion to standard books on classical and quantum mechanics, The Shaggy Steed of Physics breathes new life into the equations of physics.
