This looks very good indeed for the price.

i've just read the abstracts and downloaded all 5 in .PDF format. This will be some really interesting reading for the next couple of evenings.

This post should be the hottest of the year (it will not be of course, that will be some PS4 game for adults or a half price vibrator from Anne Summers).

Glad you like - they're really nice pieces that almost anyone can read and start to learn about really interesting topics. Hope people find them interesting. If you like them more are coming in this year, another 15 or so by year end I think so check back. I'll try and remember to update this post.

Many thanks for posting these. They are indeed nice pieces, but I doubt they are really for the man (or woman) in the street. I've just read the Dark Matter piece, and it did help to have a physics degree (even a 35 year old one like mine!). I do so hope I am wrong about this though, and that lots of people take the time to read the articles.

Probably right (I too have a physics degree) - its more for science minded people. But, if someone has a keen interest in a particular topic I reckon these would be great primers.

As an aside, if you have an interest in physics you might also like the other freebie I posted, a physics event in Bristol:

Though, only good if you're local!

My first degree (the physics one) was from Bristol - a long time ago though. Unfortunately I don't live in that part of the country now so the festival isn't really practical. I'll bear it in mind for the future though.

Does TopCashBack track on this for a further discount?

definitely

Cool. Quidco?

Awesome stuff, always wanted to read a bit of material into physics

Joking aside, heat for this, particularly the proton beam therapy pdf.

The link is not working for me

working fine here? anyone else with issues?

Fab thanks - I'm currently doing a masters economics module to I have downloaded the Quantitative Finance book heat!

New eBook published; 'Multimessenger Astronomy' by Imre Bartos and Marek Kowalski.
Link: iopscience.iop.org/boo…9-8

With the recent discovery of gravitational waves and high-energy cosmic neutrinos, we are witnessing the beginning of a new era in multimessenger astronomy. The exploration of the Universe through these new messengers, along with electromagnetic radiation and cosmic rays, gives us new insights into the most extreme energetic cosmic events, environments and particle accelerators. The objects of interest range from galaxies with accreting supermassive black holes in their centre to collapsing stars and coalescing stellar black holes. In this ebook we provide an introduction to the scientific questions surrounding these new messengers and the detectors and observational techniques used to study them, together with an overview of current and future directions in the field.
