Once Upon a Universe by Robert Gilmore

Book Description

First Snow White encounters one of the Little People, then one of the Even Smaller People, and finally one of the Truly Infinitesimal People. And no matter how diligently she searches, the only dwarves she can find are collapsed stars! Clearly, she's not at home in her well-known Brothers Grimm fairy tale, but instead in a strange new landscape that features quantum behavior, the wavelike properties of particles, and the Uncertainty Principle. She (and we) must have entered, in short, one of the worlds created by Robert Gilmore, physicist and fabulist.

Topology of Chaos by Robert Gilmore Topology of Chaos, Hardback (November 2011)

Innovative methods for the analysis of chaotic systems, in this second edition completed by a broad introduction for the non expert, additional chapters on embeddings, bounding tori, and the representation theory for strange attractors, and frequently asked questions.

Lie Groups, Physics, and Geometry by Robert Gilmore Lie Groups, Physics, and Geometry, Hardback (January 2008)

Introduction to Lie groups for graduate and undergraduate students in physics, mathematics and electrical engineering.

Symmetry of Chaos by Robert Gilmore Symmetry of Chaos, Hardback (January 2007)

Why have scientists, engineers, and mathematicians become intrigued by chaos? Chaos is about predictability in even the most unstable systems, and symmetry is a pattern of predictability - a conceptual tool to help understand complex behaviour. This book aims to treat this interplay between chaos and symmetry.
