Ideas about heredity and evolution are undergoing a revolutionary change. New findings in molecular biology challenge the gene-centered version of Darwinian theory according to which adaptation occurs only through natural selection of chance DNA variations. In Evolution in Four Dimensions, Eva Jablonka and Marion Lamb argue that there is more to heredity than genes. They trace four "dimensions" in evolution – four inheritance systems that play a role in evolution: genetic, epigenetic (or non-DNA cellular transmission of traits), behavioral, and symbolic (transmission through language and other forms of symbolic communication).

Thinking in Four Dimensions: Creativity and Cognition in Contemporary Dance

Robin Grove, Catherine J. Stevens, Shirley McKechnie "Thinking in Four Dimensions: Creativity and Cognition in Contemporary Dance"
Publisher: Melbourne University Press (December 2004) | 219 Pages | ISBN: 0522851452 | PDF | 2.3 MB

This collaboration between artists, choreographers, researchers, experimental psychologists and cognitive scientists investigates ways in which choreographers and performers make innovative, expressive movement, and audiences interpret what may well be a previously unmapped experience. "Thinking in Four Dimensions" is the first book to address the cognitive processes that underpin the creation of new works of contemporary dance. With case studies including data gathered from dance audiences as well as psychological analysis of new dance works, plus interviews with artists and video of performance pieces, "Thinking in Four Dimensions" is a unique package. "Thinking in Four Dimensions" is available in two formats. The e-book version incorporates text, full-colour images and video, which gives access to unique footage of choreographers and performers creating important new Australian dance works. The d-book is a print-on-demand version of the text with black and white images. This exciting collection of essays suggests that dance-making can be a form of imaginative enquiry - a thinking in time and space - both for those who perform it, and for those who watch.

Spinors in Four-Dimensional Spaces

Spinors in Four-Dimensional Spaces By Gerardo F. Torres del Castillo
English | EPUB | 2010 | 177 Pages | ISBN : 0817649832 | 2.64 MB

Without using the customary Clifford algebras frequently studied in connection with the representations of orthogonal groups, this book gives an elementary introduction to the two-component spinor formalism for four-dimensional spaces with any signature. Some of the useful applications of four-dimensional spinors, such as Yang–Mills theory, are derived in detail using illustrative examples.

BMS Particles in Three Dimensions

BMS Particles in Three Dimensions By Blagoje Oblak
English | PDF | 2017 | 461 Pages | ISBN : 3319618776 | 7.65 MB

This thesis presents the state of the art in the study of Bondi-Metzner-Sachs (BMS) symmetry and its applications in the simplified setting of three dimensions. It focuses on presenting all the background material in a pedagogical and self-contained manner to enable readers to fully appreciate the original results that have been obtained while learning a number of fundamental concepts in the field along the way. This makes it a highly rewarding read and a perfect starting point for anybody with a serious interest in the four-dimensional problem.
