Icons and Symmetries by Simon L. Altmann

By Simon L. Altmann

Here's a lucid advent to the information of symmetry as they're so effectively utilized in the fields of physics, chemistry and different actual sciences. utilizing merely ordinary arithmetic, the writer discusses the delicate dating among actual items, versions, and icons, and explains the various so-called symmetry paradoxes. all the 3 chapters makes use of a case-study to demonstrate the advance of significant suggestions. within the first chapters, the point of interest is at the proposal and value of an icon. the writer explains the origins and purposes of symmetry, and indicates how rotations got here to be defined by way of Hamilton by way of quaternions. This method provides perception into the symmetry houses of vectors and demonstrates the relevance of tensors and spinors. The 3rd bankruptcy illustrates using symmetry within the class of strength degrees in atoms and solids, and discusses damaged symmetry. With its use of straightforward, easy-to-understand arithmetic, the booklet will entice quite a lot of readers drawn to the philosophy and background of technological know-how, technology normally, and physics in particular. it may well additionally function important supplementary analyzing for college kids in those fields.
