Learning Topology Best Book

Introduction to Topology: Pure and AppliedIf you want to learn about the amazing subject of math, topology and its real-life applications; I would suggest Introduction to Topology book. The book achieves to provide all essential theories like knots, dynamical systems, chaotic systems, spaces, compact and connected spaces, topological transformations. Besides, the reader can learn where the topology theories are applied. It includes explaining cosmology with topological models, computerized graphics, DNA structure and more.

Sizing Up the Universe

Sizing Up the Universe: The Cosmos in PerspectiveThis is a breathtaking publication on sizes in the Universe. This effectively illustrated book, Sizing up the universe, distinctively represents the vastness and charms of the cosmos.

What I identified most successful was the conversation of the apparent measurements physical objects, like the comparing of our Moon with the Andromeda Galaxy, the distances inside our very own solar system and Milky Way galaxy, and the universe beautifully illustrated with a fold out Gott-Juric Map representing the comparable distance of the major objects and constructions of the identified universe.

The photographs are awe-inspiring and offer a recognition of the vastness of objects and distances in the cosmos.

This book is a pleasant acquisition to my hobbyist astronomy selection. Even though I have several books and magazines on the subject of the universe, our galaxy, the solar system and all related structures and objects, this book stands apart because of its power to evidently connect complicated aspects using words, breath-taking images, and drawings.

p.s : Neutrino book and Cycle of time book are worth checking as well.

Nuclear Fusion Fuel Age is coming


According to an article at The Independent Science, scientists are planning to see the first results of nuclear fusion used as a real fuel in this October, at the new National Ignition Facility (NIF in California. The dreams of ultimate clean green energy can really become a reality in near future according to the scientists with this crucial step. There are over 190 laser beams at the facility, which are ready to start self-sufficing fusion reaction on a very small target.

As you know, hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe and the natural fuel of our Sun and the other stars in the universe using the nuclear fusion. As atomic nuclei collide so fast & hard to each other, they release an incredible amount of energy. Remember the bad guy, hydrogen bomb. Think nuclear fusion fuel as a controlled hydrogen bomb which up to now, it couldn't be achieved.

Self-sustaining fusion reaction even needs more extreme conditions than the center of the Sun. Imagine an increadible temperature of 100 million centigrade. We will surely hear more successful results from NIF, hopefully in this year.

128 Great Places Where Most Important Scientific Events Occured

I am not talking about traditional science museums but unique places where every science and technology enthusiast try to visit at least once in life. In his 500 pages book, John Graham Cumming takes us into a breath-taking journey. Starting in Kiev Chernobyl museum where one of the biggest nuclear disasters of world happened in 1986, he continues the journey to Deutsches Museum in Munich where more than 20,000 science related objects are in exhibitions. Surely, one day will not be enough to visit every section. Geek Atlas, most wished-for science journey atlas with illustrations is a perfect choice for geeks, science geeks and non-geeks as well.

Amazing Fractal Plants - Romanesco Broccoli

I hate broccoli but not this one. Because it is mathematically so beautiful !

The flower has one of the most simplistic and beautiful natural 3D fractal forms. Mathematicians especially adore this plant because somehow it makes identical smaller spiral shaped copies of itself and it goes eternally towards center logarithmically. One of the wonders of world like fibonacci numbers and Golden Ratio.

I should also add that it tastes delicious and widely cooked in Italy like other normal broccoli. If you want to plant yours, Amazon sells Romanesco Broccoli seeds very cheap, just $2 for 50 seeds.
