A groundbreaking argument for why alien life will evolve to be much like life here on Earth We are all familiar with the popular idea of strange alien life wildly different from life on earth inhabiting other planets. Maybe it's made of silicon! Maybe it has wheels! Or maybe it doesn't. In The Equations of Life, biologist Charles S. Cockell makes the forceful argument that the laws of physics narrowly constrain how life can evolve, making evolution's outcomes predictable. If we were to find on a distant planet something very much like a lady bug eating something like an aphid, we shouldn't be surprised. The forms of life are guided by a limited set of rules, and as a result, there is a narrow set of solutions to the challenges of existence. A remarkable scientific contribution breathing new life into Darwin's theory of evolution, The Equations of Life makes a radical argument about what life can--and can't--be.

Samuil Petrovitch is a survivor. He survived the nuclear fallout in St. Petersburg and hid in the London Metrozone - the last city in England. He's lived this long because he's a man of rules and logic. For example: GETTING INVOLVED = A BAD IDEA. But when he stumbles into a kidnapping in progress, he acts without even thinking. Before he can stop himself, he's saved the daughter of the most dangerous man in London. And clearly: SAVING THE GIRL = GETTING INVOLVED. Now, the equation of Petrovitch's life is looking increasingly complex: RUSSIAN MOBSTERS + YAKUZA + SOMETHING CALLED THE NEW MACHINE JIHAD = ONE DEAD PETROVITCH. But Petrovitch has a plan - he always has a plan - he's just not sure it's a good one.

Odudu was born with the silver spoon', but quite early in life he experienced poverty due to his father's fall from grace to grass. He had to struggle from a very tender age and soon became very rich. Then he fell in love with Sikiratu, a beautiful Hausa maiden, and his life seemed to bloom like the rose flower in summer. Yet danger lurked around the corner. He was kidnapped and whisked away by unknown men, and his family was thrown into chaos. In the hands of his assailants, he suffered starvation, torture, degradation, and finally . . .

Are you also asking yourself these questions: Why is it that I always find myself doing the very same thing that I try so hard not to do? Why does my life keep taking the very turn I always try to veer it away from? What exactly is it that causes me to think, feel, and act the way I do? How can I practically manage myself and my life effectively? If you are, then look no further; this is a book for you. In it you will discover how to arise by yourself through (1) the art of self-management, (2) the art of success, (3) the art of life, (4) the art of financial freedom, and (5) the mathematics of life.

In this book, we study theoretical and practical aspects of computing methods for mathematical modelling of nonlinear systems. A number of computing techniques are considered, such as methods of operator approximation with any given accuracy; operator interpolation techniques including a non-Lagrange interpolation; methods of system representation subject to constraints associated with concepts of causality, memory and stationarity; methods of system representation with an accuracy that is the best within a given class of models; methods of covariance matrix estimation; methods for low-rank matrix approximations; hybrid methods based on a combination of iterative procedures and best operator approximation; and methods for information compression and filtering under condition that a filter model should satisfy restrictions associated with causality and different types of memory. As a result, the book represents a blend of new methods in general computational analysis, and specific, but also generic, techniques for study of systems theory ant its particular branches, such as optimal filtering and information compression. - Best operator approximation, - Non-Lagrange interpolation, - Generic Karhunen-Loeve transform - Generalised low-rank matrix approximation - Optimal data compression - Optimal nonlinear filtering

This book is intended to be an introduction to Delay Differential Equations for upper level undergraduates or beginning graduate mathematics students who have a reasonable background in ordinary differential equations and who would like to get to the applications quickly. The author has used preliminary notes in teaching such a course at Arizona State University over the past two years. This book focuses on the key tools necessary to understand the applications literature involving delay equations and to construct and analyze mathematical models involving delay differential equations. The book begins with a survey of mathematical models involving delay equations.

Here for the geek in all of us are fifty foolproof equations that take the guesswork out of lifeÑand the funniest twist on an idea since Richard SmithÕs The DieterÕs Guide to Weight Loss During Sex. Call it the algebra oracle: By plugging in the right variables, GEEK LOGIK answers lifeÕs most persistent questions. It covers Dating and Romance, Career and Finance, and everyday decisions like Should I get a tattoo? Can I still wear tight jeans? Is it time to see a therapist? How many beers should I have at the company picnic? How does it work? Take a simple issue that comes up once or twice a week: Should I call in sick? Fill in the variables honestly, such as D for doctorÕs note (enter 1 for Òno,Ó 10 for Òyes,Ó and 5 for Òyes, but itÕs a forgeryÓ), R for importance of job(1-10, with 10 being Òpersonally responsible for EarthÕs orbit around SunÓ), Fj for how much fun you have at work (1-10, with 10 being Òpersonal trainer for underwear modelsÓ), N for how much you need the money (1-10, with 10 being ÒI owe the mobÓ), then do the math, and voilˆÑif the product, Hooky, is greater than 1, enjoy your very own Ferris BuellerÕs Day Off. Includes a pocket calculator so that prospective geeks can immediately solve the equation on the back cover: Should I buy this book?
