Author: David Darling, Agnijo Banerjee Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/02/2019

Since there is something rather than nothing, could nothing exist? Can you make the perfect labyrinth? Does a quantum event have to be observed before it's `real'? Just when you thought things couldn't get any stranger, David Darling and Agnijo Banerjee's reveal `bubble maths' has been studied since the second century, the counterintuitive world of quantum can be described perfectly by mathematics and the idea that maths and art couldn't be further apart is utter nonsense. From centuries-old conundrums to eccentric geniuses like Evariste Galois (he failed the entrance exams at Ecole Polytechnique twice because he couldn't explain how he'd arrived at his correct answers) to how the strangest maths connects to the everyday, Darling and Banerjee transform the bewildering into the beautiful, delighting us once again.

Life Everywhere

Life Everywhere

Author: David Darling Format: eBook Release Date: 15/10/2007

To many people, the main question about extraterrestrial life is whether it exists. But to the scientific community, that question has already been answered: it does, and within our solar system. The new science of astrobiology is already being practiced at NASA's Astrobiology Institute and the University of Washington's new Department of Astrobiology. Life Everywhere is the first book to lay out what the new science of astrobiology is all about. It asks the fascinating questions researchers in astrobiology are asking themselves: What is life? How does it originate? How often does life survive once it arises? How does evolution work? And what determines whether complex or intelligent life will emerge from more primitive forms? Informed by interviews with most of the top people in this nascent field, this book introduces readers to one of the most important scientific developments of the next century.
