Case sostenibili / Cayetano Cardelús

Barcelona : Loft Media, 2019

Abstract: Questo libro presenta una selezione di Case Sostenibili, costruite secondo ciò che è, oggi, fattibile nel campo dell'architettura sostenibile e ci mostra quali alternative sono offerte in questo senso dall'architettura attuale. Una volta considerate curiosità architettoniche, queste case, costruite nel rispetto dell'ambiente, pongono le basi della costruzione di domani e ci invitano a considerare che non possiamo accontentarci di perseguire la nostra qualità di vita, ma che dobbiamo lasciare ai nostri figli e nipoti un futuro in cui si sentono a casa loro e in cui godere di un ambiente sano e dignitoso è la norma.

Infinite powers : the story of calculus, the language of the universe / Steven Strogatz

London : Atlantic Books, 2019

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.

Bauer, Craig P.

Unsolved! : the history and mystery of the world's greatest ciphers from ancient Egypt to online secret societies / Craig P. Bauer

Princeton : Princeton University Press, [2017]

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"
