    Default Springer "The Frontiers" collection

    Hi NT fellows I recently became acquainted with the book series "The Frontiers", edited by Springer-Verlag. It's a collection of books dealing with the latest developments of science, questions and issues that are still widely open-ended, often at the edge between different branches of science. I was wondering if any of you is familiar with any of the titles? I think the topics are extremely interesting, thus I felt like sharing

    The whole series can be found here:

    The Frontiers Collection (Titles in this series)

    I have some of them (backup copies, of course) in .pdf format, if anybody is interested.

    Bump. It's really interesting stuff, not-too-technical, I think many of you could be interested. Take a look at the link if you've got some free time

    I'll put it on my radar.

    I have a -stuff to do when I'm bored that don't bother other people- list going.
    This may qualify as a -somthing that will go unnoticed by an instructor durring class- thing to do. I'm rather short on those.

    Only problem is the school library now charges per print out.
    Last year I totally printed fanfiction and stuck itin a binder.

    BUT I ACTUALLY USED THE PAPER AND KEPT IT AND IT WAS USEFUL TO ME.

    Unlike the people who printed out entire websites and took only like one page out of 12 and left the rest on the printed stuff bin.

    end rant.

    Wow, these titles seem really interesting, particularly:
    *The Nonlinear Universe ∑ Chaos, Emergence, Life
    *The Emerging Physics of Consciousness
    *Relativity and the Nature of Spacetime

    I don't think I can spend so much money just to satisfy my curiosity right now, though. But I will keep them on my list.
