TitleMath makes sense! A Constructivist Approach to the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics
Author(s)Ana Helvia Quintero;Hector Rosario
PublicationLondon, Imperial College Press, 2016.
Descriptionxi, 277p.
Abstract NoteThe methods for teaching mathematics usually follow the structure of mathematics. The problem with this is that the structure of mathematics took centuries of elaboration to develop and is not the same as how one originally experiences mathematics. Based on research of how mathematics is actually learned, this book presents an innovative approach for teaching mathematics that will engage pupils and can have lifelong benefits for how they take on board more advanced mathematical topics. Math Makes Sense! makes use of the realistic mathematics education (RME) philosophy, which bridges the gap between informal mathematics learning (such as in day-to-day life) and more formal teaching in school. Many real-life situations as examples for learning are included, as well as different mathematical and logic puzzles that will stimulate learning and foster understanding.

TitleMathematics of natural catastrophes
Author(s)Gordon Woo
PublicationLondon, 1. Imperial College Press 2. World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 1999.
Descriptionvii, 292p.
Abstract NoteThis is a unique book about natural catastrophes, focusing on the mathematical aspects of these phenomena. Although academic in style and didactic in purpose, it is practical in the treatment of the diverse issues covered, which range from hazard warning and forecasting to engineering design criteria and insurance loss estimation. Addressing as it does many mathematical topics not found together in a single volume, the book should be of value to all those with a quantitative educational interest in or professional concern for natural catastrophes.

TitleGauge theories of gravitation: A Reader with Commentaries
Author(s)Milutin Blagojevic (ed.);Friedrich W. Hehl (ed.)
PublicationLondon, Imperial College Press, 2013.
Descriptionxvii, 635p.
Abstract NoteIn the last five decades, the gauge approach to gravity has represented a research area of increasing importance for our understanding of the physics of fundamental interactions. A full clarification of the gauge dynamics of gravity is expected to be the last missing link to the hidden structure of a consistent unification of all the fundamental interactions, based on the gauge principle. The aim of the present reprint volume, with commentaries by Milutin Blagojevic and Friedrich W Hehl, is to introduce graduate and advanced undergraduate students of theoretical or mathematical physics, or any other interested researcher, to the field of classical gauge theories of gravity. This is not just an ordinary reprint volume; it is a guide to the literature on gauge theories of gravity. The reader is encouraged first to study the introductory commentaries and to become familiar with the basic content of the reprints and related ideas, then he/she can choose to read a specific reprint or reprints, and after that he/she should return again to the text and explore the additional literature, etc. The interaction is intended to be more complex than just starting with commentaries and ending with reprints.

TitleLet there be light: The Story of Light from Atoms to Galaxies
Author(s)Alex Montwill;Ann Breslin
Edition2nd.
PublicationLondon, Imperial College Press, 2013.
Descriptionxix, 529p.
Abstract NoteThis book is the first of its kind devoted to the key role played by light and electromagnetic radiation in the universe. Readers are introduced to philosophical hypotheses such as the economy, symmetry and the universality of natural laws, and are then guided to practical consequences such as the rules of geometrical optics and even Einstein's well-known but mysterious relationship, E = mc2. Most chapters feature a pen picture of the life and character of a relevant scientific figure. These ‘Historical Interludes’ include, among others, Galileo's conflicts with the Inquisition, Fourier's taunting of the guillotine, Neils Bohr and World War II, and the unique character of Richard Feynman. The second edition has been revised and made more accessible to the general reader. Whenever possible, the mathematical material of the first edition has been replaced by appropriate text to give a verbal account of the mystery of the phenomenon of light and how its understanding has developed from pre-historic to present times. The emphasis is on reading for interest and enjoyment; formulae or equations which underpin and reinforce the argument are presented in a form which does not interfere with the flow of the text.

TitleElements of fluid dynamics
Author(s)Guido Buresti
PublicationLondon, Imperial College Press, 2012.
Descriptionxvii, 584p.
Series(ICP Fluid mechanics)
Abstract NoteElements of Fluid Dynamics is intended to be a basic textbook, useful for undergraduate and graduate students in different fields of engineering, as well as in physics and applied mathematics. The main objective of the book is to provide an introduction to fluid dynamics in a simultaneously rigorous and accessible way, and its approach follows the idea that both the generation mechanisms and the main features of the fluid dynamic loads can be satisfactorily understood only after the equations of fluid motion and all their physical and mathematical implications have been thoroughly assimilated. Therefore, the complete equations of motion of a compressible viscous fluid are first derived and their physical and mathematical aspects are thoroughly discussed. Subsequently, the necessity of simplified treatments is highlighted, and a detailed analysis is made of the assumptions and range of applicability of the incompressible flow model, which is then adopted for most of the rest of the book. Furthermore, the role of the generation and dynamics of vorticity on the development of different flows is emphasized, as well as its influence on the characteristics, magnitude and predictability of the fluid dynamic loads acting on moving bodies.

TitleBasic space plasma physics
Author(s)Wolfgang Baumjohann;Rudolf A. Treumann
EditionRev. ed.
PublicationNew Jersey, Imperial College Press, 2012.
Descriptionxvi, 479p.
Abstract NoteThis textbook begins with a description of the Earth's plasma environment, followed by the derivation of single particle motions in electromagnetic fields, with applications to the Earth's magnetosphere. Also discussed are the origin and effects of collisions and conductivities, formation of the ionosphere, magnetospheric convection and dynamics, and solar wind-magnetosphere coupling. The second half of the book presents a more theoretical foundation of plasma physics, starting with kinetic theory. Introducing moments of distribution function permits the derivation of the fluid equations, followed by an analysis of fluid boundaries, with the Earth's magnetopause and bow shock as examples, and finally, fluid and kinetic theory are applied to derive the relevant wave modes in a plasma. This revised edition seamlessly integrates new sections on magnetopause reconstruction, as well as instability theory and thermal fluctuations based on new developments in space physics. Applications such as the important problems of collisionless reconnection and collisionless shocks are covered, and some problems have also been included at the end of each chapter.

TitleFundamentals of imaging: From Particles to Galaxies
Author(s)Michael M. Woolfson
PublicationLondon, Imperial College Press, 2011.
Descriptionxiv, 360p.
Abstract NoteIt is through images that we understand the form and function of material objects, from the fundamental particles that are the constituents of matter to galaxies that are the constituents of the Universe. Imaging must be thought of in a flexible way as varying from just the detection of objects — a blip on a screen representing an aircraft or a vapour trail representing the passage of an exotic particle — to displaying the fine detail in the eye of an insect or the arrangement of atoms within or on the surface of a solid. The range of imaging tools, both in the type of wave phenomena used and in the devices that utilize them, is vast. This book will illustrate this range, with wave phenomena covering the entire electromagnetic spectrum and ultrasound, and devices that vary from those that just detect the presence of objects to those that image objects in exquisite detail. The word ‘fundamentals’ in the title has meaning for this book. There will be no attempt to delve into the fine technical details of the construction of specific devices but rather the book aims to give an understanding of the principles behind the imaging process and a general account of how those principles are utilized.

TitleQuantum field theory and its macroscopic manifestations: Boson condensation, ordered patterns and topological defects
Author(s)Massimo Blasone;Giuseppe Vitiello;Petr Jizbra
PublicationLondon, Imperial College Press, 2011.
Descriptionxviii, 526p.
Abstract NoteThe scope of this book is to answer questions such as: how it happens that the mesoscopic/macroscopic scale and stability characterizing those systems are dynamically generated out of the microscopic scale of fluctuating quantum components; how quantum particles coexist and interact with classically behaving macroscopic objects, e.g. vortices, magnetic domains and other topological defects. The quantum origin of topological defects and their interaction with quanta is a crucial issue for the understanding of symmetry breaking phase transitions and structure formation in a wide range of systems from condensed matter to cosmology. Deliberately not discussing other important problems, primarily renormalization problems, this book provides answers to such questions in a unitary, self-consistent physical and mathematical framework, which makes it unique in the panorama of existing texts on a similar subject. Crystals, ferromagnets and superconductors appear to be macroscopic quantum systems, i.e. their macroscopic properties cannot be explained without recourse to the underlying quantum dynamics. Recognizing that quantum field dynamics is not confined to the microscopic world is one of the achievements of this book, also marking its difference from other texts. The combined use of algebraic methods, and operator and functional formalism constitutes another distinctive, valuable feature.

TitleInstabilities, chaos and turbulence
Author(s)Paul Manneville
Edition2nd
PublicationLondon, Imperial College Press, 2010.
Descriptionxv, 439p.
Series(ICP Fluid mechanics)
Abstract NoteBook is a self contained introduction to a wide body of knowledge on nonlinear dynamics and chaos. manneville emphasises the understainding of basic concepts and the nontrivial character of non linear response, constrasing it with the intuitively simple linear response. He explains the theoretica framework using pedagogical examples from fluid dynamics, though prior knowledge of the filed is not requied. Heuristic arguments and worked examples replace most esoteric technicalities.
