A Global History of Architecture 3rd Edition

A Global History of Architecture 3rd Edition

What is a global history of architecture? There is, of course, no single answer, just as there is no single way to define words like global, history, and architecture. Nonetheless, these words are not completely open-ended, and they serve here as the vectors that have helped us construct the narratives of this volume. With this […]

Understanding Molecular Simulation, Second Edition: From Algorithms to Applications

Understanding Molecular Simulation, Second Edition From Algorithms to Applications

This book is not a computer simulation cookbook. Our aim is to explain the physics that is behind the “recipes” of molecular simulation. Of course,we also give the recipes themselves, because otherwise the book would be too abstract to be of much practical use. The scope of this book is necessarily limited: we do not […]

Molecular Modelling: Principles and Applications (2nd Edition)

Molecular Modelling Principles and Applications (2nd Edition)

Molecular modelling used to be restricted to a small number of scientists who had access to the necessary computer hardware and software. Its practitioners wrote their own programs, managed their own computer systems and mended them when they broke down. Today’s computer workstations are much more powerful than the mainframe computers of even a few […]

Life seems to me the supreme marvel of the universe—familiar, thoroughly material, probably ubiquitous yet elusive and ultimately mysterious. My purpose is to assess how far we have come toward a scientific understanding of the phenomenon of life. […]
