  • by Gerald B Folland

    Quantum field theory has been a great success for physics, but it is difficult for mathematicians to learn because it is mathematically incomplete. Folland, who is a mathematician, has spent considerable time digesting the physical theory and sorting out the mathematical issues in it. Fortunately for mathematicians, Folland is a gifted expositor. The purpose of this book is to present the elements of quantum field theory, with the goal of understanding the behavior of elementary particles rather than building formal mathematical structures, in a form that will be comprehensible to mathematicians. Rigorous definitions and arguments are presented as far as they are available, but the text proceeds on a more informal level when necessary, with due care in identifying the difficulties. The book begins with a review of classical physics and quantum mechanics, then proceeds through the construction of free quantum fields to the perturbation-theoretic development of interacting field theory and renormalization theory, with emphasis on quantum electrodynamics. The final two chapters present the functional integral approach and the elements of gauge field theory, including the Salam-Weinberg model of electromagnetic and weak interactions.

  • - A Transformative Fable That Touches the Heart and Mind
    by Frederic Lenoir

    What mysterious force impelled seven sages to find one another in a forgotten monastery in Tibet? Sensing the imminence of a worldwide catastrophe, these figures come to teach two young adolescents, Tenzin and Natina, the fundamental keys to wisdom.Each figure represents one of the major spiritual traditions: There is a Tibetan lama, an American Christian, an Indian mystic, an Israeli kabbalist, a Dutch philosopher, an African Sufi guru, a Mongolian shaman, and a Chinese Taoist master. Together they willfully forget what divides their respective cultures and religions in order to teach a philosophical and spiritual message founded on humanism. Their message is simple and universal, removed from any dogmatism, and addresses the fundamental question of how to lead a good life.Armed with this wisdom when the dreaded cataclysm occurs and black dust engulfs the world in darkness for forty days and forty nights, Tensin and Natina, the only survivors, are left to lead the way toward a better future.

  • - Correct Imbalance, Relieve Strain, and Encourage Free Movement with an Innovative System of Straightness Training
    by Klaus Schoneich & Gabriele Rachen-Schoneich

    It is well known that the horse naturally carries more weight on his forehand than on his hindquarters. This forward center of gravity, combined with an often unrecognized, inborn crookedness from poll to tail, can greatly inhibit training and ultimately affect the horse's physical soundness and willingness to perform. In fact, Gabriele Rachen-Schoneich and Klaus Schoneich attribute 95 percent of all locomotive problems, in both sport and leisure horses, to this inherent crookedness. For over 25 years, Rachen-Schoneich and Schoneichalong with expert riders, trainers, veterinarians, and other specialistshave concentrated specifically on this theory at their international training center in Germany. There they have worked withand successfully "e;cured"e; through appropriate gymnastic trainingmore than 4,000 horses with straightness problems related to: incorrect or insufficient training; bad riding; veterinary misdiagnosis; poorly fit tack and equipment, and other causes. Now, the couple describe their techniques, not only for addressing the symptoms of crookedness in an already schooled horse, but also for dealing with the "e;innate problem"e; in unbroken youngsters. Readers learn how using groundwork with green horses can "e;straighten"e; them and increase their "e;carrying power"e; before they are backed. You'll see how, with sufficient attention to gymnastic training on the longe and in hand, the eventual transition to work under saddle can be handled smoothly, easily, and without ever sacrificing correct locomotion.

    'Adventurous, witty and compelling' Library Journal (starred review)The hugely anticipated sequel to Hank Green's #1 New York Times bestselling debut novel, An Absolutely Remarkable ThingThe statutes disappeared the same way they appeared, in an instant. While they were on Earth, they caused confusion and destruction without ever lifting a finger. Well, that's not exactly true. Part of their impact was the untimely death of April May: a young woman who stumbled into their path and named them the Carls, gaining viral fame and putting herself in the middle of an avalanche of conspiracy theories. Now, the world is as confused as ever. Andy has picked up April's mantle of fame, speaking at conferences and online about the world post-Carls; Maya, ravaged by grief, begins to follow a string of mysteries that she is convinced will lead her to April; and Miranda infiltrates a new scientific operation . . . one that might have repercussions beyond anyone's comprehension.As they each get further down their own paths, a series of clues arrive - mysterious books that seem to predict the future and control the actions of their readers - which seem to suggest April may be very much alive . . . But there's a new threat. A growing force that wants to control our reality. Did the Carls ever really leave us, and what happens if they're here to stay? A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor is a bold and brilliant conclusion that asks whether anyone has the right to change the world forever.

  • - A Study in Comparative Sociology
    by Jack Goody

    The preparation, serving and eating of food are common features of all human societies, and have been the focus of study for numerous anthropologists - from Sir James Frazer onwards - from a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives. It is in the context of this previous anthropological work that Jack Goody sets his own observations on cooking in West Africa. He criticises those approaches which overlook the comparative historical dimension of culinary, and other, cultural differences that emerge in class societies, both of which elements he particularly emphasises in this book. The central question that Professor Goody addresses here is why a differentiated 'haute cuisine' has not emerged in Africa, as it has in other parts of the world. His account of cooking in West Africa is followed by a survey of the culinary practices of the major Eurasian societies throughout history - ranging from Ancient Egypt, Imperial Rome and medieval China to early modern Europe - in which he relates the differences in food preparation and consumption emerging in these societies to differences in their socio-economic structures, specifically in modes of production and communication. He concludes with an examination of the world-wide rise of 'industrial food' and its impact on Third World societies, showing that the ability of the latter to resist cultural domination in food, as in other things, is related to the nature of their pre-existing socio-economic structures. The arguments presented here will interest all social scientists and historians concerned with cultural history and social theory.

  • - The New Science of Reintroduction and Reversal to Take the Fear Out of Food
    by Sloan Barnett & Kari Nadeau

    The revolutionary, research-based programme for preventing, diagnosing and reversing food allergies The problem of food allergy is exploding around us: an estimated 2 million people are living with a diagnosed food allergy in the UK alone. This book offers the first glimpse of hope with a powerful message: you can work with your family and your doctor to eliminate your food allergy forever.

The key is a strategy called immunotherapy (IT), the controlled, gradual reintroduction of an allergen into the body. Fully anglicised for UK readers, The End of Food Allergy makes Dr Nadeau's life-changing research accessible for parents, carers and professionals alike. Together with co-author New York Times bestselling author Sloan Barnett herself a mother of two children with food allergies she walks readers through every aspect of food allergy, offering a clear, supportive plan that readers can work with alongside a health care professional to break free from any kind of food allergy. Includes: What to do, learn and ask following a food allergy diagnosis and how to find the right treatment The science behind immunotherapy and early introduction How to gradually reintroduce foods not working for you and your family Advice on what to eat during pregnancy to help your baby avoid developing food allergies How to cope with the emotional toll of living with food allergy and eliminate all fearsClear, comprehensive and reassuring, The End of Food Allergy offers a life-changing, research-based programme to take the fear out of food and end food allergies in children and adults alike.

    Am fost un om zdrobit, intors spre moarte, nu inspre viata. La 30 de ani, ma imaginam traind doar inca citiva ani, la fel de zbuciumat cum am trait mereu. Apoi, murind devreme. Cu un ochi priveam spre moarte, iar cu celalalt spre copiii mei, opintindu-ma sa mai traiesc o vreme, cit sa vad fetele suficient de mari ca sa se descurce singure. Este un miracol ca nu am murit, traind atit de sinucigas, fara macar sa-mi dau seama. Am trecut razant pe linga moarte, nu doar fiindca am fost ingropata sub o avalansa, ci fiindca am trait fiecare zi ca sa mor. Am facut intoarcerea spre viata in ziua in care am decis sa ma vindec. Nu stiam atunci, insa, ca asta fac, un U turn definitiv spre lumina. Am aflat abia acum, dupa un drum lung si dureros, cind am ajuns.Am adunat n cartea aceasta drumul meu spre sine E i lecE iile mele. Poate vor mai fi de folos cuiva, drumeE rA tA cit pe calea vindecA rii. E darul pe care l ntorc vieE ii, cA m-a ngA duit E i aE teptat sA mA ntorc cu faE a spre ea.
