The Antikythera mechanism , the first known mechanical computer , [9] [10] and the mechanical inventions of Archimedes are examples of early mechanical engineering.

Some of Archimedes' inventions as well as the Antikythera mechanism required sophisticated knowledge of differential gearing or epicyclic gearing , two key principles in machine theory that helped design the gear trains of the Industrial Revolution, and are still widely used today in diverse fields such as robotics and automotive engineering. In the Middle Ages, the trebuchet was developed. Renaissance era[ edit ] A water-powered mine hoist used for raising ore, ca. Aside from these professions, universities were not believed to have had much practical significance to technology.

De re metallica was the standard chemistry reference for the next years. This bridge was made of cast iron , which was soon displaced by less brittle wrought iron as a structural material The science of classical mechanics , sometimes called Newtonian mechanics, formed the scientific basis of much of modern engineering. Similarly, in addition to military and civil engineering, the fields then known as the mechanic arts became incorporated into engineering.

Canal building was an important engineering work during the early phases of the Industrial Revolution. He was an English civil engineer responsible for the design of bridges, canals, harbours, and lighthouses. He was also a capable mechanical engineer and an eminent physicist. Using a model water wheel, Smeaton conducted experiments for seven years, determining ways to increase efficiency.

Smeaton designed the third Eddystone Lighthouse —59 where he pioneered the use of ' hydraulic lime ' a form of mortar which will set under water and developed a technique involving dovetailed blocks of granite in the building of the lighthouse. He is important in the history, rediscovery of, and development of modern cement , because he identified the compositional requirements needed to obtain "hydraulicity" in lime; work which led ultimately to the invention of Portland cement.

Applied science lead to the development of the steam engine. The sequence of events began with the invention the barometer and the measurement of atmospheric pressure by Evangelista Torricelli in , demonstration of the force of atmospheric pressure by Otto von Guericke using the Magdeburg hemispheres in , laboratory experiments by Denis Papin , who built experimental model steam engines and demonstrated the use of a piston, which he published in Edward Somerset, 2nd Marquess of Worcester published a book of inventions containing a method for raising waters similar to a coffee percolator.

Calculus Made Easy by Silvanus P. Thompson Review: Even those who are not particularly gifted or even proficient in mathematics will enjoy sitting down and studying from Calculus Made Easy. Thompson creates a warm, inviting environment where students will learn and grasp the true essence of calculus without any added fluff or overt technicality.

Frustrated students who have sought after a compatible calculus aid to no avail will agree that this is a professional tool that is presented to the reader on the same wavelength. Thompson knows that math is hard. Rather than taking the standard approach that many use to confound and further bewilder students, he breaks calculus down into a form that is a lot less threatening.

Calculus I Books Calculus, Vol. He wanders off the standard presentational path for a calculus course and thereby creates a more historically accurate and useful book. But this is a book that was written for the curious student with the intention of being read and understood, not practiced and blindly memorized. The result is that students will be ready to tackle calculus subjects and courses with a newfound clarity.

Calculus by Michael Spivak Review: Tenacious students in favor of stimulating study will love this book. He forces them to rely on their own perspicacity and reason instead of a collection of random techniques and mechanics. This fourth edition includes additional problems and other minor changes not included in the third.

Apostol Review: In this follow-up to Volume I of his series, Apostol continues to lay the groundwork for calculus students with precision and ease. Unlike other calculus books, this one is replete with substance. The author takes time to build and prove each theorem the way it ought to be done. Unlike many follow-up math books, this one never mindlessly repeats the same material. Instead, it vigorously moves ahead into new territory involving the use of multi-variables and advanced applications.

Calculus On Manifolds by Michael Spivak Review: This short and concise book only focuses on what is essential and nothing else.

Spivak makes his writing on the main objective of the book — Stokes Theorem — painless and easy to grasp. Readers are encouraged to keep a pen and paper on hand to rewrite the proofs on their own. However it provides a much needed break from the rather austere climate that the math world is usually comprised of. Her selected mathematicians come from diverse backgrounds and have all reached their authoritative status in equally different ways.

Each photograph is accompanied by a quick, informative and often enlightening essay by the mathematician at hand, frequently revealing the passion and deep love for their discipline that each mathematician possesses. Cook does a wonderful job of capturing her subjects in an honest and purely human light. As such, this title is the ideal coffee table book for math geeks. For those who are unfamiliar with the subject, sangakus are Japanese geometrical puzzles that were created on wooden tablets and hung in sacred temples and shrines.

Readers will discover how the Japanese cleverly intertwined the mathematical, the spiritual, and the artistic to create their own cultural brand of geometry. Sangaku was formulated during an era before western influence had reached Japan. This makes it a unique and fascinating art that has attracted many mathematicians. This hardcover volume is rich of illustrations and would be a nice coffee table book.

This is a much needed textbook that can truly be classified as introductory. The authors take careful consideration not to over-elaborate key concepts and thereby confuse those readers who are not as advanced in mathematics as others. Students will enjoy walking step by step through precisely detailed combinatorial proofs as well as reading the greatly in depth chapter on Recurrence Relations Chapter 6.

An abundance of combinatorial problems that are perfect for math competition trainers and participants can be found at the end of each chapter, adding even more value to this already low-priced gem. Hirst, and Michael Mossinghoff Review: This second edition of Combinatorics and Graph Theory presents all relevant concepts in a clear and straight to-the-point manner that students will undoubtedly favor.

The authors waste no time and quickly set out to teach readers in a brilliantly written and warmly engaging manner. The second edition also contains new material not previously included in the first, such as extended information on Polya theory, stable marriage problems, and Eulerian trails. Braun runs through the pages of his book in a light, expertly written manner that will keep readers hooked for hours.

The PCM carries the true signature of a math encyclopedia in that it is versatile and capable of being all things to all learners in every field of mathematics, and on all levels also.

In light of its broad spectrum of topics, the editors have managed to keep this book cohesive and well knit together. The PCM includes specialized articles from contributors on a variety of math topics that even the most advanced pros can learn from.

Non-mathematicians who are curious about the trade can also learn a great deal of information from the PCM due to its overall accessible nature. This is the kind of book that will still be read a hundred years from now, and it truly is the nicest book I own.

Encyclopedia of Mathematics by James Stuart Tanton Review: This awesome reference gives math lovers exactly what they want from a math encyclopedia. This book is formatted in an A- Z structure. Tanton makes no diversions in outlining or trying to draw connections other than what is necessary.

He essentially gives readers the needed facts and resources, and then keeps it moving. This will prove to be wonderful for some while disappointing for others.

The book contains more than entries as well as relevant timelines following the entries. While not a mandatory requirement, it is highly recommended that the reader has a slight understanding of math logic.

This will make it easier to complete the many exercises found throughout. Goldrei Review: This is a clearly written and expertly arranged independent study guide designed to make the topic of set theory comprehensible and easy to grasp for self-study students. Without a doubt, this books more than delivers. Readers can expect a smooth ride devoid of complexity and assumed pre-exposure to the subject. Ideas, commentaries and recommendations that are resourcefully placed alongside the main text delightfully height the learning experience.

This is one of those unfortunately rare but wonderfully rigorous independent study math books that many students stumble across and never seem to put down. Categories for the Working Mathematician by Saunders Mac Lane Review: The author of this work, Sunders Mac Lane, has concisely spread out all the vital category theory information that students will probably ever need to know. Category theory is a tough topic for many and is not effortlessly explained. Those with limited experience with graduate-level mathematics are cautioned to start with a more basic text before delving into this one.

The astounding part about all of it is that Jan Gullberg is a doctor and not a mathematician. The enthusiasm he exhibits throughout will spread onto readers like wildfire. This work is clearly a labor of love, not self-exaltation. Readers will appreciate that Gullberg is simply a man who has fallen in love with and holds an immense adoration for one of the most important components of human civilization.

What Is Mathematics? That is because this book does more than just skim the surface. The authors prompt readers to actually think about the ideas and methods mentioned rather than blindly swallow them down for later use.

They present captivating discussions on many topics instead of dull facts and easy answers. The end result of reading this book is an appreciation that will develop from the thought processes readers are required to use. The writing is classic and elucidating, accompanied by many engaging illustrations and side notes.

Mathematics and its History by John Stillwell Review: This book contains a treasure chest of priceless history and deep facts that even established pros will find themselves learning from. John Stillwell foregoes the encyclopedic route and makes it his goal to help the reader understand the beauty behind mathematics instead. He brilliantly unifies mathematics into a clear depiction that urges readers to rethink what they thought they knew already.

He effectively travels all pertinent ground in this relatively short text, striking a clever balance between brevity and comprehensiveness. During the course of reading this one, it will become blatantly clear to the reader that the author has created this work out of passion and a genuine love for the subject.

Every engineer can benefit deeply from reading this. He covers all aspects of computational science and engineering with experience and authority.

The topics discussed include applied linear algebra and fast solvers, differential equations with finite differences and finite elements, and Fourier analysis and optimization. Strang has taught this material to thousands of students. The purpose Robinson Recent years have seen considerable research activity at the interface of mathematics and fluid mechanics, particularly partial differential equations.

The workshop at the University of Warwick was organised to consolidate, survey and further advance the subject. This volume is an outgrowth of that workshop. It consists of a number of reviews and In this book morphological study is formed into random particle assemblies to which various mathematics are applied such as correlation function, radial distribution function Matthen M.
