Title  Symmetry Rules : How Science and Nature Are Founded on Symmetry 
Author(s)  Rosen, Joseph 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2008. 
Description  XIV, 305 p. 86 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  When we use science to describe and understand the world around us, we are in essence grasping nature through symmetry. In fact, modern theoretical physics suggests that symmetry is a, if not the, foundational principle of nature. Emphasizing the concepts, this book leads the reader coherently and comprehensively into the fertile field of symmetry and its applications. Among the most important applications considered are the fundamental forces of nature and the Universe. It is shown that the Universe cannot possess exact symmetry, which is a principle of fundamental significance. Curie's principle  which states that the symmetry of the effect is at least that of the cause  features prominently. An introduction to group theory, the mathematical language of symmetry, is included. This book will convince all interested readers of the importance of symmetry in science. Furthermore, it will serve as valuable background reading for all students in the physical sciences
