 Book — xi, 332 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
 Summary

Although hints of a crisis appeared as early as the 1570s, the temperature by the end of the sixteenth century plummeted so drastically that Mediterranean harbors were covered with ice, birds literally dropped out of the sky, and "frost fairs" were erected on a frozen Thameswith kiosks, taverns, and even brothels that become a semipermanent part of the city. Recounting the deep legacy and farranging consequences of this "Little Ice Age, " acclaimed historian Philipp Blom reveals how the European landscape had suddenly, but ineradicably, changed by the midseventeenth century. While apocalyptic weather patterns destroyed entire harvests and incited mass migrations, they gave rise to the growth of European cities, the emergence of early capitalism, and the vigorous stirrings of the Enlightenment. A timely examination of how a society responds to profound and unexpected change, Nature's Mutiny will transform the way we think about climate change in the twentyfirst century and beyond.

 Summary

The aim of this manuscript is to provide a complete and precise formulation of the renormalization picture for perturbative Quantum Field Theory (pQFT) on general curved spacetimes introduced by R. Borcherds in [R. E. Borcherds, "Renormalization and quantum field theory", Algebra number theory 5 (2011) 627658]. More precisely, we give a full proof of the free and transitive action of the group of renormalizations on the set of Feynman measures associated with a local precut propagator, and that such a set is nonempty if the propagator is further assumed to be manageable and of cut type. Even though we follow the general principles laid by Borcherds in loc. cit., we have in many cases proceeded differently to prove his claims, and we have also needed to add some hypotheses to be able to prove the corresponding statements.

"One or the most stunning scientific detective stories of the last fifty yearslike James Gleick's Chaos wrapped in an Indiana Jones adventure. When worldrenowned physicist Paul Steinhardt began his career in the 1980s, scientists thought they had identified all the possible types of matter. The issue had been settled science for centuries. But when Steinhardt pursued a wild fantasy he first imagined as a curious teenager, it led to a radical new theory, predicting an astonishing form of matter that broke all the established rules. The breakthrough would launch him on a thirtyfiveyear quest to prove the substance's existence in the natural world. [This] is the untold story of Steinhardt's odyssey and a candid account of the brilliant, and often bruising, battles that take place behind the scenes of scientific progress. Steinhardt and his stellar team of researchers encounter international smugglers, corrupt scientists, secret diaries, fraudulent traders, political intrigue, and Russian security agents. Their search culminates in a daring expedition to one of the most inhospitable regions on Earth, pursuing tiny fragments of a meteorite forged at the birth of the solar system. Steinhardt and his team chart a new direction in science. They not only change our ideas about the fundamentals of matter but also reveal new truths about the processes that shaped our solar system. The underlying science is deceptively simple, unexpectedly beautiful, and nothing short of revolutionary. Steinhardt's firsthand account is a scientific thriller of the first order."Dust jacket.

10. The atom : the building block of everything [2018]
 Challoner, Jack, author.
 London : The Ivy Press, 2018.
 Description
 Book — 192 pages : colour illustrations ; 25 cm
 Summary

Until now, popular science has relegated the atom to a supporting role in defining the different chemical elements of the periodic table. This bold new title places its subject center stage, shining the spotlight directly onto the structure and properties of this tiniest amount of anything it is possible to identify. The book covers a huge range of topics, including the development of scientific thinking about the atom, the basic structure of the atom, how the interactions between atoms account for the familiar properties of everyday materials; the power and mystery of the atomic nucleus, and what the mysterious quantum realm of subatomic particles and their interactions can tell us about the very nature of reality. Sparkling text banishes an outdated world of dull chemistry, as it brightly introduces the reader to what everything is made of and how it all works, on the most fundamental level.
