Opinion

I am an academic - it goes without saying that I have opinions.  Below are links to articles, websites and books that I enjoy reading.  Needless to say, these are my opinions and do not in any way represent the views of my employer, the University of Windsor.

Articles

  • Preserve the roles of tenure, teaching and research - D.G. Homberger and A.R.P. Rau
  • Why “Intelligent Design” (ID) is not science, and why, therefore, it should not be taught in a science curriculum. -  Penny Higgins
  • Addressing the public about science and religion - Murray Peshkin

Books

  • Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in the Markets and Life - Nassim Taleb - for Dan (there's more to real-life probability distributions than Gaussians)
  • Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen - an all-time favourite
  • Symmetries in Quantum Physics - U. Fano and A.R.P. Rau - invaluable for an AMO physicist
  • The Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics - Gary Zukav - correct science explained in an entertaining way!
  • Spherical Harmonics - Catherine Asaro - cool science fiction from a real physicist
