  Very big book with great information, well-thought-out. This is not a read from cover to cover type of book, it is very comprehensive, something you want to absorb a little at a time. If you are interested in geometry and sacred geometry this is a very interesting book indeed/5(7). A description of the geometry of space-time, in particular the theory of special relativity, with all the questions and issues explained without relying solely on formulas. The author shows that the geometry of space-time is indeed geometry, using actual constructions with which we are familiar from Euclidean geometry, and which admit exact. 1 Introduction 2 The World of Space and Time Time-tables Surveying space-time Physical prerequisites of geometry 3 Reflection and Collision Geometry and reflection The reflection of mechanical motion 4 The Relativity Principle of Mechanics and Wave Propagation 5 Relativity Theory and its Paradoxes Pseudo-Euclidean geometry Einstein's mechanics Energy   The Geometry of the End Of Time book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. This work explores the geometric and prophetic patterns wh /5(6).

"The new edition of The Geometry of Biological Time is a fascinating update of the delightful original. This new edition contains thoughtful commentary on new developments in the field, adding a historical and sociological dimension to the original book's elegant and unifying treatment of biological problems involving processes that repeat Cited by:   One of these is the Geometry of Time. All I can do is hope this pushes us beyond that threshold of ignorance. For keep in mind, if there is a BUSINESS CYCLE as even Paul Volcker had to admit in his Rediscovery of the Business Cycle back in , then the implications of that is we must learn to live with the cycle as Joseph and the Pharaoh or. This book strikes a good balance between the physics and the math. Nice coverage of the Lorentz transformation and the invariance of Maxwell's equations under it. Minkowski space time and "hyperbolic" geometry (nice review of hyperbolic functions in analogy with trigonometric functions).Cited by: "In The Geometry of Wealth, Brian Portnoy has used his incredible talent for translating financial drudgery into simple, accessible, and entertaining prose to help us re-define our satisfaction with has written a book that will leave you truly wealthier for reading it." -Corey Hoffstein, Chief Investment Officer, Newfound Research "The Geometry of Wealth walks you through what really Reviews:

Another law of circle geometry is that the greater the radius, the greater the circumference. The same is true of the circle of time. The further we depart from its timeless center, the more “body” time has: the more turbulent it is, the more at odds with the “Shabbat” at its core. This book consists of two lecture notes on geometric flow equations (O. Schnürer) and Lorentzian geometry - holonomy, spinors and Cauchy Problems (H. Baum and T. Leistner) written by leading experts in these fields. It grew out of the summer school “Geometric flows and the geometry of space-time” held in Hamburg () and provides an. The Geometry of Biological Time describes periodic processes in living systems and their non-living analogues in the abstract terms of nonlinear dynamics. Enphasis is given in phase singularities, waves, and mutual synchronization in tissues composed of many clocklike units.
