Triangle Imzadi II
'Imzadi' is a powerful Betazoid term that describes the enduring bond between lovers, and Triangle: Imazadi II is the untold story behind the tragic love that united two of the Enterprise crew: ship's counsellor Deanna Troi and the Klingon Commander Worf. At first glance they could not be more different. She is a calm and gentle empath, acutely sensitive to the needs and emotions of others. He is a fierce Klingon warrior, dedicated to a harsh and warlike code of honour. Brought together by their mutual care for Worf's son Alexander, they embark on an unexpected courtship, much to the surprise and discomfort of Deanna's former lover, Commander William Riker. But does Worf's future truly lie with Deanna ... or on a distant outpost called Deep Space Nine? And who will Deanna ultimately choose to call 'Imazadi'?
Nancy Kress cemented her reputation in SF with the publication of her multiple-award–winning novella, "Beggars in Spain," which became the basis for her extremely successful Beggars Trilogy (comprising Beggars in Spain, Beggars and Choosers, and Beggars Ride). And now she brings us Probability Space, the conclusion of the trilogy that began with Probability Moon and then Probability Sun, which is centered on the same world as Kress's Nebula Award-winning novelette, "Flowers of Aulit Prison." The Probability Trilogy has already been widely recognized as the next great work by this important SF writer. In Probability Space, humanity's war with the alien Fallers continues, and it is a war we are losing. Our implacable foes ignore all attempts at communication, and they take no prisoners. Our only hope lies with an unlikely coalition: Major Lyle Kaufman, retired warrior; Marbet Grant, the Sensitive who's involved with Kaufman; Amanda, a very confused fourteen-year-old girl; and Magdalena, one of the biggest power brokers in all of human space. As the action moves from Earth to Mars to the farthest reaches of known space, with civil unrest back home and alien war in deep space, four humans--armed with little more than an unproven theory--try to enter the Fallers' home star system. It's a desperate gamble, and the fate of the entire universe may hang in the balance. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
The Mis Behaviour of Markets
This international bestseller, which foreshadowed a market crash, explains why it could happen again if we don't act now. Fractal geometry is the mathematics of roughness: how to reduce the outline of a jagged leaf or static in a computer connection to a few simple mathematical properties. With his fractal tools, Mandelbrot has got to the bottom of how financial markets really work. He finds they have a shifting sense of time and wild behaviour that makes them volatile, dangerous - and beautiful. In his models, the complex gyrations of the FTSE 100 and exchange rates can be reduced to straightforward formulae that yield a much more accurate description of the risks involved.

The Red Book of Varieties and Schemes
"The book under review is a reprint of Mumford's famous Harvard lecture notes, widely used by the few past generations of algebraic geometers. Springer-Verlag has done the mathematical community a service by making these notes available once again.... The informal style and frequency of examples make the book an excellent text."

A History of Murphy s Law
Murphy's Law is one of the most well-recognized statements of philosophy known to man. Tipped off by his next door neighbor that Murphy may have worked at Edwards Air Force Base, and that the Law may have come into being after a rocket sled experiment went awry, author Nick T. Spark beings a Quixotic quest to learn the truth. His attempts to pin down the mysterious origins of The Law and to answer the eternal question, "Who was Murphy and what is the true meaning of Murphy's Law?" are both amusing and relevatory. Read it, and find out why everything you ever thought you knew about Murphy's Law -- is wrong.
Cybernetics Or Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine
"It appers impossible for anyone seriously interested in our civilization to ignore this book. It is a ‘ must’ book for those in every branch of science . . . in addition, economists, politicians, statesmen, and businessmen cannot afford to overlook cybernetics and its tremendous, even terrifying implications. "It is a beautifully written book, lucid, direct, and despite its complexity, as readable by the layman as the trained scientist." -- John B. Thurston, "The Saturday Review of Literature" Acclaimed one of the "seminal books . . . comparable in ultimate importance to . . . Galileo or Malthus or Rousseau or Mill," "Cybernetics" was judged by twenty-seven historians, economists, educators, and philosophers to be one of those books published during the "past four decades, " which may have a substantial impact on public thought and action in the years ahead." -- "Saturday Review"
