Graphs; This book is in Near Fine condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. "In this introductory volume we try to develop as thoroughly as possible a few, but not all, of the new concepts introduced in quantum mechanics. Essentially, we concern ourselves with the many aspects of the Schrodinger equation (without spin) and its applications. In presenting our material we shall make rather extensive use of the concept of the wave packet. The wave packet is by no means of basic importance, but it serves as a useful scaffolding by means of which quantum mechanics may be built."

THEORY OF SATELLITE ORBITS IN AN ATMOSPHERE, King-Hele, Desmond
2 King-Hele, Desmond THEORY OF SATELLITE ORBITS IN AN ATMOSPHERE
London, England Butterworths 1964 1st Edition; 1st Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Graphs; This book is in Very Good+ condition and has a Very Good dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. A previous owner has removed the top corner of the front endpaper (presumably where a previous owner's name was inked), taking out an rectangle of the page approximately one inch deep and two inches long. The dust jacket has several small edge nicks and tears along with some light, but noticeable rubbing and a couple of small chips missing. King-Hele was awarded the Eddington Medal from the Royal Astronomical Society in 1971 for his work on "geophysical application of the study of the orbits of artificial satellites." (from Wikipedia). "The theory has already been used successfully in geophysical research, and is essential to the understanding of the evolution of actual satellite orbits."

Cybernetics Or Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine, Wiener, Norbert
3 Wiener, Norbert Cybernetics Or Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine
New York John Wiley & Sons / The Technology Press 1949 6th Printing Hardcover Very Good+ 
Charts; This book is in Very Good+ condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. There is some beginning rubbing to the spine ends and corners of the book covers. The text pages are clean and bright. This book is from the library of Alan L. Leiner: "The Leiners, who started their professional careers as mathematicians, have spent the major part of their careers on research and development of electronic computers. Henrietta C. Leiner worked in the computer field at the National Bureau of Standards, Washington, DC until mid-career, when her interest in neural systems caused her to switch to the field of neuroanatomy, which she studied at Columbia University in New York City. Alan L. Leiner designed electronic computer systems at the National Bureau of Standards, Washington, DC from 1945 to 1 96Q, when he joined the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY. He worked for two decades at IBM in New York, Philadelphia, and Palo Alto, CA, after which he retired. In retirement, for more than a decade, the Leiners have been engaged in an interdisciplinary effort to analyze cerebro-cerebellar networks in the human brain, with particular emphasis on cerebellar contributions to cognition. " (information found at new horizons for learning ). Chapters include: Newtonian and Bergsonian Time, Groups and Statistical Mechanics, Time Series, Information, and Communication, Feed-Back and Oscillation, Computing Machines and the Nervous System, Gestalt and Universals, Cybernetics and Psychopathology, and, Information, Language and Society.
