### z-component

What science/math books do you have on your bookshelf?

I will start:
• Teach Yourself C++ by Sams
• PHP by Visual
• Delphi in a Nutshell by O'Reilly
• Geometry by Prentice Hall
• Chemistry: The Central Science by Brown and LeMay, Jr.
• HTML Studio Skills by Bell & Eby
• The Character of Physical Law by Richard Feynman
• E=mc2 by Bodanis

EDIT: Forgot some.

### BicycleTree

My family owns something like 5,000 books, and probably five hundred to a thousand or so science/math books. Our walls are covered with bookcases.

### JamesU

Five hundred? You'll have a LOT of posting to do

Hah, I have a biology book of ~1500 pages :tongue: and too many other books to mention here, I don't know how much they weigh, I am still waiting for the day that my bookshelf is going to collapse under the weight. My hat off to BicycleTree, I can't imagine owning so many books on science

### BicycleTree

I have a dictionary of 7000 pages, all in one volume. It is approximately a cube with 1-foot edges.

Wow! You should take a picture of that. :)

### Danger

I don't know what you consider as 'science books'. If you count 1960's era TV repair manuals, then probably about 5% of my 1,200 or so books would qualify. A couple of decades worth of Scientific Americans augment that.

-basic algebra,
-elementary mathemathics,
-chemistry for dummies,
-physics for idiots,
etc,

May 23, 2005 ### zoobyshoe Neuro, what's Spiking Neurons about? Sounds like a book about seizures. 15. May 24, 2005 ### neurocomp2003 Zooby: SN-is a mathematical neuroscience textbook. It studies math models of small neuronal nets in the real system. Thus taking emphasize on the time parameter. Topics include Firing rates and patterns, spatial distribution, plasticity, Learning rules, ....can't remember much else the math is a bit advanced for me, but its a nice book. 16. May 24, 2005 ### zoobyshoe Very advanced stuff. Thanks for the description. 17. May 24, 2005 ### Grogs Since z-component listed computer books, I guess I'll start with those: A complete 6-Volume set of Que MCSE 2000 Prep Books Cisco CCNA/CCDA Prep Books An old book on DOS 6 (which I actually use from time-to-time :tongue: ) Physics texts from my college days: -General Physics (Serway) -Astrophysics (Zeilik,et al) -Modern Physics -Nuclear Physics -Classical Mechanics -Introduction to Optics -Principles of Lasers -Quantum Mechanics -Nuclear Engineering -Chart Of The Nuclides -CRC, 29th Ed. Medical Books: -CPR Guide for Health Care Providers -EMT Basic Course Book -EMT Intermediate Course Book -Stedman's Medical Encyclopedia -The Merck Manual Less textbooky stuff: -A Path Where No Man Thought (Carl Sagan) -The Natural History Of The Universe -The Audubon Field Guide To The Night Sky -Starware -Advanced Skywatching -A Brief History Of Time (Hawking) -The Fourth Dimension (Rudy Rucker) Most of the other books stray a bit (or a lot) from Math/Science 18. May 24, 2005 ### Danger A couple of hundred of mine are university texts on physics, industrial chemistry, organic chemistry, regular biology, cellular biology, haemotology, medicine, psychology, criminology, mechanical engineering, fluid mechanics... I can't remember what else. All are pretty old though (80's or before) because the only way that I can afford them is at Benny the Bookworm sales or library discard sales. For instance, my copy of "Biology of Microorganisms" was published in 1970, but it only cost me$3 when I bought it in the early 80's. It wouldn't likely be any good for a student, but it covers most anything that I'm likely to need. (If it doesn't, that's what I keep Moonbear around for. )
