What book are you reading now, or have been reading recently? Only STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) books are counted.
I'll have to add this to my reading list.Recently I was reading J. MacCormick, Nine Algorithms That Changed the Future
https://www.amazon.com/dp/0691158193/?tag=pfamazon01-20
Some of the most widely used computer algorithms explained in a simple non-technical way. Very readable.
I like this book for the same reason, along with the experimental results that are included throughout the book. Was easy to read as a student - much nicer than Landau and Lifshitz, the other book we used for the class.D. J. Tritton, Physical Fluid Dynamics. I never formally learned this topic, but I now need it for my teaching. I really like the way the book is structured, starting with phenomenology before delving into the equations.
If I had to make a list of books on this topic I would put that at the end. No, in fact I will not put it in the list.This semester, I've to create problems for a GR/cosmology lecture. So I'm right now reading a bit in the literature. Whenever there's something unclear, I turn (of course) to
S. Weinberg, Gravitation and Kosmologie, Wiley&Sons, Inc., New York, London, Sydney, Toronto, 1972.
I have this book/ Looks great. Been meaning to read it for a while now...so much to read and so little time.Explorations in Mathematical Physics by Don Koks. I want to see physics math done from a geometric algebra point of view. (But I am afraid that the physics will be too tough for me.)
