Abstract: Una ragazza, durante un party, scarica una nuova app: Countdown, che le dice quanto le resta da vivere. Purtroppo per lei si tratta solo di poche ore e, quando cerca di salvarsi evitando situazioni rischiose, le viene notificato di aver infranto il contratto d'utenza. L'infrazione sarà punita da apparizioni diaboliche e fantasmatiche che finiranno per farle perdere la vita al momento previsto. Tra una vittima e l'altra anche la giovane infermiera Quinn Harris, per altro molestata da un importante dottore che lei non ha il coraggio di denunciare, scarica la app e scopre di aver poco da vivere, finendo per infrangere il contratto d'utenza. Con l'aiuto di un hacker, di un ragazzo afroamericano nelle stesse condizioni e di un sacerdote geek della demonologia, Quinn cercherà di salvare se stessa e sua sorella dal sinistro mietitore.

Abstract: A Strange and Eventful TaleProf. John T.Spike “‘St. Jerome’ was painted by a killer on the run, stolen for ransom and then saved by a priest”In 1984, the St. Jerome, an autograph painting by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, was stolen from the magnificent Co-Cathedral of St John's.

Zerafa, then Director of the Museum, was contacted by the thieves with the message: "We have the painting. We want money. Don't contact the police...or else…”Fr.

Abstract: hortlisted for the Royal Society Science Book Prize 2019 A magisterial history of calculus (and the people behind it) from one of the world's foremost mathematicians. This is the captivating story of mathematics' greatest ever idea: calculus. Without it, there would be no computers, no microwave ovens, no GPS, and no space travel. But before it gave modern man almost infinite powers, calculus was behind centuries of controversy, competition, and even death. Taking us on a thrilling journey through three millennia, professor Steven Strogatz charts the development of this seminal achievement from the days of Archimedes to today's breakthroughs in chaos theory and artificial intelligence. Filled with idiosyncratic characters from Pythagoras to Fourier, Infinite Powers is a compelling human drama that reveals the legacy of calculus on nearly every aspect of modern civilisation, including science, politics, medicine, philosophy, and much besides.

Abstract: In 1953, a man was found dead from cyanide poisoning near the Philadelphia airport with a picture of a Nazi aircraft in his wallet. Taped to his abdomen was an enciphered message. In 1912, a book dealer named Wilfrid Voynich came into possession of an illuminated cipher manuscript once belonging to Emperor Rudolf II, who was obsessed with alchemy and the occult. Wartime codebreakers tried--and failed--to unlock the book's secrets, and it remains an enigma to this day. In this lively and entertaining book, Craig Bauer examines these and other vexing ciphers yet to be cracked. Some may reveal the identity of a spy or serial killer, provide the location of buried treasure, or expose a secret society--while others may be elaborate hoaxes. Unsolved! begins by explaining the basics of cryptology, and then explores the history behind an array of unsolved ciphers. It looks at ancient ciphers, ciphers created by artists and composers, ciphers left by killers and victims, Cold War ciphers, and many others. Some are infamous, like the ciphers in the Zodiac letters, while others were created purely as intellectual challenges by figures such as Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard P. Feynman. Bauer lays out the evidence surrounding each cipher, describes the efforts of geniuses and eccentrics--in some cases both--to decipher it, and invites readers to try their hand at puzzles that have stymied so many others. Unsolved! takes readers from the ancient world to the digital age, providing an amazing tour of many of history's greatest unsolved ciphers"
