Taxicab Geometry: An Adventure in Non-Euclidean Geometry

Buy

Develops a simple non-Euclidean geometry and explores some of its practical applications through graphs, research problems, and exercises. Includes selected answers.

This book has a triple purpose: to develop a very simple, concrete non-Euclidean geometry; to explore a few of its many real-world applications; to pose some of the original, yet accessible research questions that abound in this new geometry. The only prerequisite is some familiarity with Euclidean geometry.

Radiation Hormesis and the Linear-No-Threshold Assumption
Radiation Hormesis and the Linear-No-Threshold Assumption

Current radiation protection standards are based upon the application of the linear no-threshold (LNT) assumption, which considers that even very low doses of ionizing radiation can cause cancer. The radiation hormesis hypothesis, by contrast, proposes that low-dose ionizing radiation is beneficial. In this book, the author examines all facets...
