In a series of lectures delivered in 1924, Dr. I.P. Pavlov reviewed his entire course of experiments, summarized his conclusions, and outlined his landmark psychological system. Until that time, Pavlov's investigations were known only through individual monographs, most of which had appeared in hard-to-find periodicals published in eastern Europe. This book- an expanded version of the lectures- is a full, authorized translation of the Novel Prize-winning scientist's work in experimental psychology.
One of the seminal works of Western philosophy, Aristotle's Rhetoric vastly influenced all subsequent thought on the subject — philosophical, political, and literary. Focusing on the use of language as both a vehicle and a tool to shape persuasive argument, Aristotle delineates with remarkable insight both practical and aesthetic elements and their proper combination in an effective presentation, oral or written. He also emphasizes the role of language in achieving precision and clarity of thought. The ancients regarded rhetoric as the crowning intellectual discipline — the synthesis of logical principles and other knowledge attained from years of schooling. Modern readers will find considerable relevance in Aristotelian rhetoric and its focus on developing persuasive tools of argumentation. Aristotle's examinations of how to compose and interpret speeches offer significant insights into the language and style of contemporary communications, from advertisements to news reports and other media.

"Mathematicians wishing a self-contained introduction need look no further." — American Mathematical Monthly. 1982 edition.
Monumental engineering text covers vertical flight, forward flight, performance, mathematics of rotating systems, rotary wing dynamics and aerodynamics, aeroelasticity, stability and control, stall, noise, and more. 189 illustrations. 1980 edition.
Concise description of classical statistics, from basic dice probabilities to modern regression analysis. Equal stress on theory and applications. Moderate difficulty; only basic calculus required. Includes problems with answers.
Iintroductory treatment emphasizes graph imbedding but also covers connections between topological graph theory and other areas of mathematics. Authors explore the role of voltage graphs in the derivation of genus formulas, explain the Ringel-Youngs theorem, and examine the genus of a group, including imbeddings of Cayley graphs. Many figures. 1987 edition.
Universally acknowledged as the classic text in its field, this volume covers order statistics and their exceedances; exact distribution of extremes; analytical study of extremes; the 1st asymptotic distribution; uses of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd asymptotes; and the range summary. 1958 edition. Includes 44 tables and 97 graphs.
This 1856 volume constitutes one of the most important books ever written about the French Revolution. It explores the rebellion's origins and consequences, offering timeless insights into the pursuit of individual and political freedom.
This pioneering proclamation by the great architect expounds Le Corbusier's technical and aesthetic theories, views on industry, economics, the relation of form to function, "mass-production spirit," and much more. Profusely illustrated with over 200 line drawings and photographs of Le Corbusier's buildings and other important structures.
