Transition to chaos : the orbit diagram and the Mandelbrot Set by Robert L Devaney( Visual )

3 editions published between 1990 and 2001 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Devaney explores and explains two of the images that arise in the study of dynamical systems, the orbit diagram and the Mandelbrot Set. The main goal of the lecture is to describe the relationship between these two images: how they are generated as well as what they mean mathematically
The Art of Renaissance science : Galileo and perspective( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph W. Dauben discusses the genius of Galileo, the origin of perspective drawing and the interaction of art and science in the Renaissance. Computer graphics are used to explain Galileo's theories and experiments
Introducing Mathematica by Stephen Wolfram( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematica creator, Dr. Stephen Wolfram, demonstrates and explains how to use this award-winning software on a Macintosh IIx microcomputer. The presentation is in two parts: 1. introduction to Mathematica, and, 2. how to use Mathematica to solve mathematical problems. Dr. Wolfram concludes the presentation with a discussion of the programming capabilities of the language of Mathematica
The vision of modern medicine( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents how the discoveries of the 19th century, particularly x-rays, led to current imaging technology, including fluoroscopy, arteriography, CT scan, mammography, PET and SPECT, endoscopy, MRI and ultrasound
The beauty & complexity of the Mandelbrot set by John H Hubbard( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John H. Hubbard presents the basics of fractals. He explains iteration and how it is used to create pictures of Julia and Mandelbrot sets, as well as the electric fields which would surround electrically charged objects shaped like them. He concludes with remarks about these sets and the field of genetics and their relations
Endless energy : wind, solar and geothermal power( Visual )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A look at the three most economically viable alternatives to fossil fuel, hydroelectric, and nuclear power. The potential and limitations of wind, solar and geothermal power as utility scale energy sources is examined. Includes visits to operating windfarms, solar thermal, geothermal, photovoltaic power plants, Sandia National Laboratory and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory
Chaos, fractals and dynamics : computer experiments in mathematics by Robert L Devaney( Visual )

2 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Devaney communicates his deep understanding and enthusiasm for chaos, fractals and dynamical systems. Starting at a level suitable for well prepared high school students, he tells the mathematical story behind these fascinating topics
Natural minimal surfaces via theory and computation( Visual )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prof. Hoffman presents the basic analysis and geometry necessary to understand the mathematical study of minimal surfaces and also discusses the computer technologies employed in recent discoveries of families of new examples. He will also present some of the recent applications to the study of block copolymers
Natural minimal surfaces via theory and computation by David A Hoffman( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Hoffman covers the basic analysis and geometry needed to understand minimal surfaces. He discusses computer techniques used to discover families of examples and some applications to the study of the microstructure of compound materials and block copolymers are also presented. His lecture is illustrated with animated computer graphics
