Suggested Reading: Science Books

This is a very subjective selection of books I have read (from my time as a student of Physics and Philosophy until recently), which in the one or other way helped me to better understand certain aspects of science. I believe that "understanding science" is always work in progress, globally reflected in the History of Science and individually in ones own biography of mastering and contributing to a small (but hopefully increasing) piece of today's state of the art.

Text enclosed by apostrophes is quoted from the foreword of the books, anything else is my very subjective comment.


(Computational) Fluid Dynamics

Lattice Gas/Boltzmann

Meanwhile there is a variety of textbooks available which give an introduction to Lattice Gas and Lattice Boltzmann theory and applications. Below I list all books I am aware of (in chronological order of their publishing date).
