Title  The Mathematical Universe : From Pythagoras to Planck 
Author(s)  Schiff, Joel L 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XVIII, 303 p. 123 illus., 61 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This is a book about the mathematical nature of our Universe. Armed with no more than basic high school mathematics, Dr. Joel L. Schiff takes you on a foray through some of the most intriguing aspects of the world around us. Along the way, you will visit the bizarre world of subatomic particles, honey bees and ants, galaxies, black holes, infinity, and more. Included are such goodies as measuring the speed of light with your microwave oven, determining the size of the Earth with a stick in the ground and the age of the Solar System from meteorites, understanding how the Theory of Relativity makes your everyday GPS system possible, and so much more. These topics are easily accessible to anyone who has ever brushed up against the Pythagorean Theorem and the symbol ??, with the lightest dusting of algebra. Through this book, sciencecurious readers will come to appreciate the patterns, seeming contradictions, and extraordinary mathematical beauty of our Universe

Title  Category Theory in Physics, Mathematics, and Philosophy 
Author(s)  Ku??, Marek;Skowron, Bart??omiej 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XII, 134 p. 3 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The contributions gathered here demonstrate how categorical ontology can provide a basis for linking three important basic sciences: mathematics, physics, and philosophy. Category theory is a new formal ontology that shifts the main focus from objects to processes. The book approaches formal ontology in the original sense put forward by the philosopher Edmund Husserl, namely as a science that deals with entities that can be exemplified in all spheres and domains of reality. It is a dynamic, processual, and nonsubstantial ontology in which all entities can be treated as transformations, and in which objects are merely the sources and aims of these transformations. Thus, in a rather surprising way, when employed as a formal ontology, category theory can unite seemingly disparate disciplines in contemporary science and the humanities, such as physics, mathematics and philosophy, but also computer and complex systems science
