Here is a link to a table of galaxies which includes distance from Earth, light brightness, radius, rotation velocity, mass, and mass-to-light ratio. For explanation, click "next" at bottom or top of the page. And here is a portal to a list of galaxy types and methods of computation. As you can read in the introduction, various assumptions are made and not ...

Most graduate text books in Classical mechanics have (as their last two chapters) discussions of perturbation theory in classical mechanics. These (however) are not invariably readable, and will usually restrict the solution to problems that can be described by a Hamiltonian e.g. have no friction or dissipation. Goldstein, "Classical Mechanics" has such a ...

The Legendre polynomials arise naturally when solving the Poisson equation for a system with spherical symmetry (such as the hydrogen atom). The Bessel functions arise naturally when solving the Poisson equation for a system with cylindrical symmetry. In essentially the same way, the Chebyshev equation and its solutions arise when you consider a problem ...

First of all, if you are dealing with a network of finite number of resistors, try redrawing it in some form in which you'll be able to recognize the parallel or series connections. Secondly, take a look at Delta-Y Transform which might be really helpful in some cases. If these fail, turn to Kirchoff's laws i.e. put a test generator between the points ...

It really depends if you are interested in the 2+1 dimensional or the 3+1 dimensional theory. Under the condition that you mean 3+1 dimensions: Nonlinear higher spin theories in various dimensions - X. Bekaert, S. Cnockaert, Carlo Iazeolla, M.A. Vasiliev is a standard reference Elements of Vasiliev theory - V.E. Didenko, E.D. Skvortsov for an ...

There's a book by Sudbery called "Quantum Mechanics and the Particles of Nature", subtitled "An Outline for Mathematicians". This would seem to be just what you're looking for. I'd also highly recommend Dirac's Principles of Quantum Mechanics. The math isn't always completely rigorous, but he thinks like a mathematician. At the same time, he frequently ...

Gas mass $(5.5 \pm 0.6) \times 10^{14} (H_0/50)^{-5/2} M_{\odot}$ within $5(H_0/50)^{-1}$ Mpc, where $H_0$ is the Hubble parameter in km/s per Mpc - Hughes (1989). Or $(5.1 \pm 1.5) \times 10^{14} (H_0/50)^{-5/2} M_{\odot}$ within $5(H_0/50)^{-1}$ Mpc - Briel et al. (1992).

I think the following link will be your best bet at finding a free book on this topic: http://www.plouffe.fr/simon/math/Artin%20E.%20The%20Gamma%20Function%20(1931)(23s).pdf If you're like me and despise reading on PDF's and prefer reading print, The few books I can recommend that won't break your budget are: ...

As you mentioned memristance governs nonlinear behavior of electric or magnetic circuit based on the amount of electric charge which has passed through it. In this paper Strukov et al. from HP labs described properties of memristors and provided fundamental mathematical model. As a physical model they employed metal/oxide/metal circuit where metal is Pt and ...

I think Shankar's Principles of Quantum Mechanics contains decent exercises that promote understanding of the material, many of which are proofs and derivations rather than simply computations.

Assuming you mean the enthalpy of combustion, carbon dioxide doesn't combust. That is it does not react with oxygen to produce water and carbon dioxide. Therefore it has no enthalpy of combustion. Did you mean carbon monoxide?

Once you have an understanding of fluid mechanics, the two best books for CFD specifically that I have used are: Computational Fluid Dynamics by John Anderson. I don't know if you have ever used any of Anderson's fluid dynamics books, but I highly recommend all of them. His books are all very readable and spend most of the text describing what to do rather ...

Since the question is "can you recommend a book that talks about these topics with minimal math," the answer is no. It would be even more confusing to describe quantum information and quantum computing without math than with the math, as the concepts aren't as intuitive as say general relativity, which can fairly effectively be described with mostly words. ...

This may not be exactly what you want, but it does go over some classical field theory and good chuck of differential geometry. http://www.gravity-and-light.org/lectures

No doubt that a must read on this topic is the classic work by Fradkin and Shenker: http://journals.aps.org/prd/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevD.19.3682 In particular, it was pointed out that for $Z_2$ gauge theories (and I believe for all $Z_n$) the confined phase and the Higgs phase are in fact smoothly connected. There is no sharp phase boundary between the ...
