Rudely yanked from cryo-sleep to find herself among a crew of modded humans in deep space, and on a burning spaceship, no less, Daisy's world just got a whole lot more complicated. And it was only going to get worse.
As if the creepy cyborg and the mechanically-enhanced human crew weren't bad enough, what was supposed to be a simple flight home to Earth was going horribly wrong. A deadly plot was unfolding. One that could jeopardize the entire human race. And Daisy found herself stuck in the middle
It wasn't her job, saving the world, and she sure as hell didn't want it. But the tough young woman didn't have a choice. But with Daisy reluctantly coming to the rescue, did humanity even stand a chance?

This publication provides detailed solutions for the problems in the exercise sets in the textbook "Style in Technical Math" by the author. The coverage includes both even-numbered and odd-numbered problems in the exercise sets.
As our aim is to promote formulations and algorithms that promote fluency, for the most part, we have provided detailed solutions as opposed to partial solutions or just answers. Alternative approaches that meet the criteria for fostering fluency in solving mathematical problems are included in the solutions.
When an exercise extends a concept that is introduced in the body of the textbook or introduces a new one, further detail about the topic is included in the form of side notes. This should help the reader connect the ideas that are presented in the body of the text to their extension in the exercises.

Is time real or is it just an illusion?
Time is so basic in our lives that we sometimes take it for granted. But stop for a moment and think: What is time? How can it be defined? If you delve into the definition of the concept of time, not only will you find that the answer to these questions is no trivial matter, but also that surprisingly, no single clear answer has ever been found and agreed upon by all.
Written in simple, clear language, the book takes the reader on a fascinating journey down the evolution of defining the concept of time, from antiquity and up to the 21st century. It describes how the revolutionary theories of relativity and quantum mechanics in 20th century physics opened up new directions of thought in this field.
Whether you know nothing about the subject or are a professor of physics, Alon Halperin will tell you exactly what you need to know: from philosophical questions about the perception of reality, time travel, determinism and free choice, to the ...
