About this book

Guillen explores the mathematical origins of five landmark achievements that have permanently altered our everyday lives. The five equations are: Newton's law of gravity; Bernoulli's law of hydro-dynamic pressure; Farraday's law of electro-magnetic induction; Clausius's second law of thermo-dynamics; and Einstein's theory of relativity. Guillen also looks into the public and private lives of the scientists who discovered these theorems.
