Physical reasoning was responsible for some fundamental mathematical discoveries, from Archimedes, to. .5. This book should appeal to anyone curious about geometry or mechanics, or to many people who are not interested in mathematics because they find it dry or boring

Physical reasoning was responsible for some fundamental mathematical discoveries, from Archimedes, to Riemann, to Poincaré, and up to the present day. As a subject develops, however, this heuristic reasoning becomes forgotten. As a result, students are often unaware of the intuitive foundations of subjects they study. The intended audience. This book should appeal to anyone curious about geometry or mechanics, or to many people who are not interested in mathematics because they find it dry or boring. Besides its entertainment value, this book can be used as a supplement in courses in calculus, geometry, and teacher education.

Mark Levi's book "The Mathematical Mechanic" is a wonderful attempt to integrate physical reasoning with mathematical reasoning. These two strands have historically run in parallel and only occasionally have they been united at least at a pedagogical level

Mark Levi's book "The Mathematical Mechanic" is a wonderful attempt to integrate physical reasoning with mathematical reasoning. These two strands have historically run in parallel and only occasionally have they been united at least at a pedagogical level. There seems to be a trend among Russian mathematicians particularly in the area of differential equations whereby they use physical reasoning to illuminate the more abstract mathematical approaches that are taken. V I Arnold is an example someone who has been known to integrate the two approaches. Perhaps Levi's Russian.

The book’s subtitle is Using Physical Reasoning to Solve Problems. The physical proofs in The Mathematical Mechanic seem unmotivated in a sense. Given a physical problem statement, the solution is quite tangible and motivated

The book’s subtitle is Using Physical Reasoning to Solve Problems. Strictly speaking, however, the book uses physical reasoning to create problems. Given a physical problem statement, the solution is quite tangible and motivated. However, it is sometimes hard to imagine how one could have formulated the physical problem in the first place.

The. MATHEMATICAL MECHANIC using physical reasoning to solve problems. Princeton university press. physical incarnation of the problem. 3 Some problems are well suited for this treatment, and some are not (naturally, this book includes only the former kind). Finding a physical interpretation of a particular problem is sometimes easy, and sometimes not; readers can form their own opinions by skimming through these pages. Physical reasoning was responsible for some fundamental mathematical discoveries, from Archimedes, to Riemann, to Poincaré, and up to the present day.

Everybody knows that mathematics is indispensable to physics--imagine where we'd be today if Einstein and Newton didn't have the math to back up their ideas. But how many people realize that physics can be used to produce many astonishing and strikingly elegant solutions in mathematics? Mark Levi shows how in this delightful book, treating readers to a host of entertaining problems and mind-bending puzzlers that will amuse and inspire their inner physicist.

Levi turns math and physics upside down, revealing how physics can simplify proofs and lead to quicker solutions and new theorems, and how physical solutions can illustrate why results are true in ways lengthy mathematical calculations never can. Did you know it's possible to derive the Pythagorean theorem by spinning a fish tank filled with water? Or that soap film holds the key to determining the cheapest container for a given volume? Or that the line of best fit for a data set can be found using a mechanical contraption made from a rod and springs? Levi demonstrates how to use physical intuition to solve these and other fascinating math problems. More than half the problems can be tackled by anyone with precalculus and basic geometry, while the more challenging problems require some calculus. This one-of-a-kind book explains physics and math concepts where needed, and includes an informative appendix of physical principles.

*The Mathematical Mechanic* will appeal to anyone interested in the little-known connections between mathematics and physics and how both endeavors relate to the world around us.
