This essential reference work is the most popular paperback dictionary of physics available. It contains over 3,500 clear and concise entries, covering all commonly encountered physics terms and concepts, including terms relating to astronomy and astrophysics, and terms relating to physical chemistry.
Written by an experienced author and teacher of students with a wide range of abilities, Advanced Biology will spark interest and motivate A-Level students. Questions are presented in two styles, 'Quick Check' and 'Food for Thought', to give opportunities to practise both recall and analytical skills. 'Fact of Life' boxes on spreads also encourage discovery by providing interesting and thought-provoking aspects of biology. Key Points: · Important terms are highlighted · Full colour illustrations · Graduated questions to practise recall and analytical skills
The book is designed for those studying AS or A2 Biology. The topics are laid out with clearly highlighted key points, and are supplemented by many examples and questions. There is also additional information on revision and examination techniques and practical skills
An Imaginary Tale - The Story of the Square Root of Minus One
Paul J. Nahin , Princeton University Press , 1998
In this book, Paul Nahin tells the 2000-year-old history of one of Mathematics' most elusive numbers: the square root of minus one, also known as i, re-creating the baffling mathematical problems that conjured it up and colourful characters who tried to solve them.

This book covers the fundamentals of quantum physics through the full Coulomb theory of the hydrogen atom. A semi-quantitative analysis of the helium atom, and a qualitative description of the build up of the periodic table, ending with a brief discussion of radiation by atoms.
This book provides an introduction to the animal kingdom with emphasis on arthropods, parasites and vertebrates. It examines the dichotomy between the enormous structural and ecological diversity of animals and the similarity of their genes and biochemical pathways as revealed by molecular biology. The practical applications of animal diversity to medical and agriculatural problems are emphasized.
