Quark and the Jaguar by Murray Gell-Mann

Book Description

This book is about how the wonderful diversity of the universe can arise out of a set of fairly simple basic laws. It is written by an expert in both the fundamental laws and the complex structures that they can produce.' Stephen Hawking's acclaim of Murray Gell-Mann's literary debut is typical of the reception the book received on first publication in 1994. From one of the twentieth century's greatest scientists comes this unique, highly personal vision of the connections between the basic laws of physics and the complexity and diversity of the natural world. THE QUARK AND THE JAGUAR - the simple and the complex - is an irresistibly engaging and rewarding introduction to the life's work of physicist, polymath and Nobel Laureate Murray Gell-Mann.

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.
