50 Years of Quarks by Murray Gell-Mann 50 Years of Quarks, Paperback (April 2015)

Today it is known that the atomic nuclei are composed of smaller constituents, the quarks. A quark is always bound with two other quarks, forming a baryon or with an antiquark, forming a meson.

Something Incredibly Wonderful Happens by Murray Gell-Mann Something Incredibly Wonderful Happens, Paperback (August 2012)

Frank Oppenheimer, the younger brother of the physicist J Robert Oppenheimer used his own intellectual inquisitiveness to found the Exploratorium, a powerfully influential museum of human awareness in San Francisco that encourages play, creativity, and discovery - all in the name of understanding. The author investigates the man behind the museum.

Deception by Murray Gell-Mann Deception, Hardback (April 2009)

Deception offers a broadly accessible overview of state-of-the-art research on lies, trickery, cheating, and shams by leading experts in the natural and social sciences, as well as computing, the humanities, and the military.

Nonextensive Entropy by Murray Gell-Mann Nonextensive Entropy, Paperback (March 2004)

In modern times, a good deal of study has been devoted to a nonextensive generalization of entropy and of Boltzmann-Gibbs statistical mechanics and standard laws. This book addresses the interdisciplinary applications of these ideas, and also on various phenomena that could possibly be quantitatively describable in terms of these ideas.
