Monte Carlo Methods in Financial Engineering (Stochastic Modelling and Applied Probability) (v. 53) by Paul Glasserman Springer; 2003 edition | August 7, 2003 | English | ISBN: 0387004513 | 614 pages | PDF | 13 MB
From the reviews: "Paul Glasserman has written an astonishingly good book that bridges financial engineering and the Monte Carlo method. The book will appeal to graduate students, researchers, and most of all, practicing financial engineers [...] So often, financial engineering texts are very theoretical. This book is not." --Glyn Holton, Contingency Analysis
The Origin and Evolution of the Solar System (Series in Astronomy and Astrophysics) by Michael M. Woolfson CRC Press; 1 edition | January 1, 2000 | English | ISBN: 075030457X | 462 pages | PDF | 5 MB
The origin of the solar system has been a matter of speculation for many centuries, and since the time of Newton it has been possible to apply scientific principles to the problem. A succession of theories, starting with that of Pierre Laplace in 1796, has gained general acceptance, only to fall from favor due to its contradiction in some basic scientific principle or new heavenly observation.
