A fun addition to my apps. The grandchildren live it, although it is rather restricted in the structures possible. Worth downloading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good guide to a difficult subject., 26 Feb. 2014

I have always struggled with the scientific concept of symmetry, and the breaking of it. This text enabled me to 'at last' , to fathom these idea's. A good ancillary text for undergraduate physics students.

Screen protector arrived on time. No instructions provided. By the time I had figured it out I had acquired dust mots under the films. Not value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars These are the papers that "Dreams are made of.", 14 Mar. 2013

My own fault, my knowledge base is two narrow to fully appreciate this collection of ground breaking papers. You need to read and reread these papers to get a glimpse of this most unintuitive of subjects.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book that all students of mathematics must have in their collection., 14 Mar. 2013

How could anyone fault Euclid! An exelent and lucid tranlation, no wonder it is a classic. The historical notes are most informative.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good text that must be bolstered by a very good grounding in math., 14 Mar. 2013

This review is from: Analytical Mechanics (Paperback)
Not a book for the "faint hearted." A good grounding in math is needed to fully engage with this text.

A wonderful (if one can use such a term about physics) book. It opened my eyes to the Hamiltonian for the first time. A very very good text for physics undergraduates.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best explanation of the standard model, 18 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Higgs: The invention and discovery of the God Particle. What a beautiful book, it's lucid explanation of things atomical is breathtaking. For such a complex theory to be made available to the general reader in easily digestible pieces is a work of art. A book so well researched and accessible deserves the widest audience. Quite an achievement following so closely the finding of the "mass giver", at CERN earlier this year. I look forward to reading other books by this author.

Introduction to Algebra
Introduction to Algebra
by Peter J. Cameron
Edition: Paperback
Price: £34.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Algebraic Wonder, 10 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Introduction to Algebra is a beautifully crafted text, that encourages you to keep on reading. It has a light touch without loosing any rigor. It is well paced and as such it lends itself to self study (my mode of learning); but oh! to have been at Queen Mary and Westfield College to experience the material first hand. A wonderful introduction to Abstract Algebra.
