“A Brilliant Darkness: The Extraordinary Life and Mysterious Disappearance of Ettore Majorana, the Troubled Genius of the Nuclear Age” tells the story of Majorana. Joao Magueijo is the author of this book. It is an exceptional biography in both its writing and pace. Those who are somewhat versed in the history of science will find this a fascinating read as it exposes a number of interesting facets of the birth of the nuclear age, especially as it pertains to Italian physics and the rise of the Axis powers. Further, the writer does well to intersperse large nuggets of scientific discussion throughout the many chapters that make the life of Ettore Majorana relevant to the reader. Why should we care about a physicist who suddenly vanished Magueijo does a masterful job of making you care, both for the historical perspective and the ethical questions he raises. For the hardcore science buff, the battle to discover the true nature of the neutrino is covered in depth, and pairs well with other books that cover the subject such as “Neutrino” by Frank Close.
A Guide to MATLAB Object-Oriented Programming

“A Guide to MATLAB Object-Oriented Programming (Computing and Networks)” is a great book about MATLAB programming. Andy H. Register is the author of this book. This book explains why each feature of MATLAB programming is important, demonstrates how each feature is used and promotes an understanding of the interactions between features. Assuming an intermediate level of MATLAB programming knowledge, the book not only concentrates on MATLAB coding techniques but also discusses topics critical to general software development. It introduces fundamentals first before integrating these concepts into example applications. In the first section, the book discusses eight basic functions constructor, subsref, subsasgn, display, struct, fieldnames, get, and set. Building on the previous section, it explores inheritance topics and presents the Class Wizard, a powerful MATLAB class generation tool. The final section delves into advanced strategies, including containers, static variables, and function fronts. This book was written like a first draft of a Master’s Thesis. It’s long, wordy, and organized/summarized in a way conducive to learning. To sum it up, it is a great resource for learning the MATLAB programming.

“A Shortcut Through Time: The Path to the Quantum Computer” is all about quantum computing. George Johnson is the author of this book. It is a well-written introduction to the complex topic of quantum computing. Quantum computing, in a general sense, is the utilization of various quantum mechanical phenomenon, such as entanglement, for the benefit of a powerful computer, or data processing engine. In a more basic sense, this is a book about the potential for computing devices that operate at the atomic level. This engaging and well-written book is, in various parts, a historical overview of computing, a vivid description of quantum mechanics and an exposition of the potential for quantum computing. The book is written for a general audience but several advanced topics are covered in a unique manner, such as a good description of “NP-complete” (Nodeterministic Polynomial-time) problems. In short, we highly recommended for those with an interest in learning more about the potential for a new approach to computing.
