The shape of space by Jeffrey R Weeks( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook covers the basic geometry of two- and three-dimensional spaces Written by a master expositor, leading researcher in the field, and MacArthur Fellow, it includes experiments to determine the true shape of the universe and contains illustrated examples and engaging exercises that teach mind-expanding ideas in an intuitive and informal way. Bridging the gap from geometry to the latest work in observational cosmology, the book illustrates the connection between geometry and the behavior of the physical universe and explains how radiation remaining from the big bang may reveal the actual shape of the universe. -- from PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

The shape of space by Jeffrey R Weeks( Visual )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the use of computer graphics and non-technical language, author Jeffrey Weeks explains the idea of topology, an area of mathematics important for theorizing about the shape of the universe. A glimpse of non-Euclidean geometry is provided by showing how a two-dimensional space a "fundamental domain", may be considered to be the surface of a torus, with properties different from those of a different plane. The analogy is extended by showing a cube as a fundamental domain. Also included is an interview with Jeffrey Weeks

Sexual cultures : communities, values, and intimacy by Jeffrey Weeks( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The new sociology of sexuality has a two-fold aim: to demonstrate how the social shapes the sexual; and to analyse how the sexual in turn becomes a focal point for personal identity, cultural anxiety value debates and political action. Drawing on papers from the 1994 British Sociological Association annual conference on 'Sexualities in Social Context', this volume bring together key contributors to this stimulating new approach. Topics covered include theoretical developments, the relationships between history and contemporary controversies, community and identity, especially in the context of AIDS, value conflicts and changes in the meanings of intimacy. The book as a whole offers a significant contribution into debates on sexuality as well as to the more general broadening of the sociological agenda."--Jacket
