If the life of any 20th century mathematician can be said to be a history of mathematics in his time, it is that of David Hilbert. To the enchanted young mathematicians and physicists who flocked to study with him in Goettingen before and between the World Wars, he seemed mathematics personified, the very air around him"scientifically electric." His remarkably prescient proposal in 1900 of twenty-three problems for the coming century set the course of much subsequent mathematics and remains a feat that no scientist in any field has been able to duplicate. When he died, Nature remarked that there was scarcely a mathematician in the world whose work did not derive from that of Hilbert.

Constance Reid's classic biography is a moving, nontechnical account of the passionate scientific life of this man-from the early days in Koenigsberg, when his revolutionary work was dismissed as "theology," to the golden years in Goettingen before Hitler came to power and within a few months destroyed the entire Hilbert school.

Historical Dictionary of Terrorism (Historical Dictionaries of Religions, Philosophies and Movements)
Historical Dictionary of Terrorism (Historical Dictionaries of Religions, Philosophies and Movements)
Terrorism has consistently dogged this supposedly modern and enlightened age. It has merely adopted new shapes and forms in keeping with the times. The causes have also evolved over the years, as old problems are solved and new ones created. Moreover, it has gone high-tech, like everything else. Thus, as this book convincingly shows, terrorism will...
Android 3.0 Application Development Cookbook
Android 3.0 Application Development Cookbook

This book covers every aspect of mobile app development, starting with major application components and screen layout and design, before moving on to how to manage sensors such as internal gyroscopes and near field communications. Towards the end, it delves into smartphone multimedia capabilities as well as graphics and animation, web access,...

Engineering Acoustics: An Introduction to Noise Control
Engineering Acoustics: An Introduction to Noise Control
'Engineering acoustics' is a teaching textbook that can serve as a tool for self-study and as a compendium for lectures as well. One of the author's goals is not only to describe how the topic develops but also why a specific way is chosen. The explanations do not restrict themselves to mathematical formulas. Only the illustrative explanation...

Surviving the Design of Microprocessor and Multimicroprocessor Systems: Lessons Learned
Surviving the Design of Microprocessor and Multimicroprocessor Systems: Lessons Learned
Design of microprocessor and/or multimicroprocessor systems represents a continuous struggle; success (if achieved) lasts infinitesimally long and disappears forever, unless a new struggle (with unpredictable results) starts immediately. In other words, it is a continuous sur-vival process, which is the main motto of this book.

Microsoft BizTalk 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration
Microsoft BizTalk 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration

We know that it is rare in IT departments today that solutions do not have to integrate with other systems and even external entities. Systems just have to be connected to support the complex business processes and levels of automation that the business is demanding. Some of these systems are really at the core of the business. They can...

Adaptive High-Resolution Sensor Waveform Design for Tracking
Adaptive High-Resolution Sensor Waveform Design for Tracking

Recent innovations in modern radar for designing transmitted waveforms, coupled with new algorithms for adaptively selecting the waveform parameters at each time step, have resulted in improvements in tracking performance. Of particular interest are waveforms that can be mathematically designed to have reduced ambiguity function sidelobes, as...
