Nhan đề: Advanced Excel for scientific data analysis / Robert de Levie Số phân loại : 507.27 R639; Đặc điểm vật lý: 707Tr : Minh họa ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : Combining an easy-going style with an emphasis on practical applications, this greatly expanded second edition is remarkable in scope and coverage. As reviews of the first edition noted, the term "advanced" in the title is not used lightly. Less than a third of its 700+ pages are devoted to least squares analysis, yet the reader will learn about many aspects of this ubiquitous method that are seldom found together in one volume: multivariate and polynomial centering, the statistical uncertainty in uncertainty estimates, how to use the covariance, singular value decomposition, the pros and cons of weighted least squares, moving equidistant least squares, nonlinear least squares, and imprecision contours .

Nhan đề: Stuffed animals & pickled heads : the culture and evolution of natural history museums / Stephen T. Asma Số phân loại : 508.074 ST206; Đặc điểm vật lý: xv, 302Tr : Minh họa ; 25 cm
*Tóm tắt : Asma takes us on a wide-ranging tour of natural history museums in New York and Chicago, London and Paris, interviewing curators, scientists, and exhibit designers, and providing a wealth of fascinating observations. We learn how the first museums were little more than high-toned side shows, with such garish exhibits as the pickled head of Peter the Great's lover. In contrast, today's museums are hot-beds of serious science, funding major research in such fields as anthropology and archaeology. Asma also points out that these museums actively shape our perception of nature, and that these efforts are swayed as much by politics as by science. In countless exhibits, for instance, the idea of the traditional nuclear family is evident in displays of everything from extinct animals to grizzly bears (in nature, alas, the male bear is more likely to devour its young than to nurture them) .
