Title  Leonhard Euler: Mathematical Genius in the Enlightenment 
Author(s)  Ronald S. Calinger 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2016. 
Description  xvii, 669 
Abstract Note  This is the first fullscale biography of Leonhard Euler (170783). one of the greatest mathematicians and theoretical physicists of all time. In this comprehensive and authoritative account, Ronald Calinger connects the story of Euler's eventful life to the astonishing achievements that Drawing chiefly on Euler's massive published works and correspondence.
which fill more than eighty volumes so far. place him in the company of Archimedes, Newton, and Gauss. this biography sets Euler's work in its multilayered contextpersonal, intellectual, institutional, political, cultural, religious, and social, It is a story of nearly incessant accomplishment, from Euler's fundamental contributions to almost every area of pure and applied mathematicsespecially calculus, number theory,
notation, optics, and celestial, rational, and fluid mechanicsto his advancements in shipbuilding, telescopes, ballistics, cartography, chronology, and music theory.

Title  Einstein and the quantum: The Quest of the Valiant Swabian 
Author(s)  A. Douglas Stone 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2013. 
Description  x, 332p. 
Abstract Note  Einstein and the Quantum reveals for the first time the full significance of Albert Einstein's contributions to quantum theory. Einstein famously rejected quantum mechanics, observing that God does not play dice. But, in fact, he thought more about the nature of atoms, molecules, and the emission and absorption of lightthe core of what we now know as quantum theorythan he did about relativity.
A compelling blend of physics, biography, and the history of science, Einstein and the Quantum shares the untold story of how Einsteinnot Max Planck or Niels Bohrwas the driving force behind early quantum theory. It paints a vivid portrait of the iconic physicist as he grappled with the apparently contradictory nature of the atomic world, in which its invisible constituents defy the categories of classical physics, behaving simultaneously as both particle and wave. And it demonstrates how Einstein's later work on the emission and absorption of light, and on atomic gases, led directly to Erwin SchrÃ¶dinger's breakthrough to the modern form of quantum mechanics. The book sheds light on why Einstein ultimately renounced his own brilliant work on quantum theory, due to his deep belief in science as something objective and eternal.

Title  Conversations on electric and magnetic fields in the cosmos 
Author(s)  Eugene N. Parker 
Publication  2007, Princeton University Press, 2007. 
Description  xi, 179p. 
Abstract Note  Todays standard textbooks treat the theoretical structure of electric and magnetic fields, but their emphasis is on electromagnetic radiation and staticelectric and magnetic fields. In this book, Eugene Parker provides advanced graduate students and researchers with a muchneeded complement to existing texts, one that discusses the dynamic electromagnetism of the cosmosthat is, the vast magnetic fields that are carried bodily in the swirling ionized gases of stars and galaxies and throughout intergalactic space.
Parker is arguably the world's leading authority on solar wind and the effects of magnetic fields in the heliosphere, and his originality of thought and distinctive approach to physics are very much in evidence here. Seeking to enrich discussions in standard texts and correct misconceptions about the dynamics of these largescale fields, Parker engages readers in a series of "conversations" that are at times anecdotal and even entertaining without ever sacrificing theoretical rigor. The dynamics he describes represents the Maxwell stresses of the magnetic field working against the pressure and inertia of the bulk motion of ionized gases, characterized in terms of the magnetic field and gas velocity. Parker shows how this dynamic interaction cannot be fully expressed in terms of the electric current and electric field.
Conversations on Electric and Magnetic Fields in the Cosmos goes back to basics to explain why classical hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics are inescapable, even in the deepest reaches of space.

Title  Dynamics and evolution of galactic nuclei 
Author(s)  David Merritt 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2013. 
Description  xi, 551p. 
Series  (Princeton Series in Astrophysics) 
Abstract Note  Deep within galaxies like the Milky Way, astronomers have found a fascinating legacy of Einstein's general theory of relativity: supermassive black holes. Connected to the evolution of the galaxies that contain these black holes, galactic nuclei are the sites of uniquely energetic events, including quasars, stellar tidal disruptions, and the generation of gravitational waves. This textbook is the first comprehensive introduction to dynamical processes occurring in the vicinity of supermassive black holes in their galactic environment. Filling a critical gap, it is an authoritative resource for astrophysics and physics graduate students, and researchers focusing on galactic nuclei, the astrophysics of massive black holes, galactic dynamics, and gravitational wave detection. It is an ideal text for an advanced graduatelevel course on galactic nuclei and as supplementary reading in graduatelevel courses on highenergy astrophysics and galactic dynamics.

Title  Visioneers: How a Group of Elite Scientsts Pursued Space Colonies, Nanotechnologies, and a limitless Future 
Author(s)  W. Patrick McCray 
Edition  eBook 
Publication  Princeton, Princeton University Press, 2013. 
Description  xii, 351p. : Princeton Scholarship Online  Oxford University Press 
Abstract Note  In 1969, Princeton physicist Gerard O'Neill began looking outward to space colonies as the new frontier for humanity's expansion. A decade later, Eric Drexler, an MITtrained engineer, turned his attention to the molecular world as the place where society's future needs could be met using selfreplicating nanoscale machines. These modern utopians predicted that their technologies could transform society as humans mastered the ability to create new worlds, undertook atomicscale engineering, and, if truly successful, overcame their own biological limits. The Visioneers tells the story of how these scientists and the communities they fostered imagined, designed, and popularized speculative technologies such as space colonies and nanotechnologies.
