Download and read online Diffeology in PDF and EPUB Diffeology is an extension of differential geometry. With a minimal set of axioms, diffeology allows us to deal simply but rigorously with objects which do not fall within the usual field of differential geometry: quotients of manifolds (even non-Hausdorff), spaces of functions, groups of diffeomorphisms, etc. The category of diffeology objects is stable under standard set-theoretic operations, such as quotients, products, co-products, subsets, limits, and co-limits. With its right balance between rigor and simplicity, diffeology can be a good framework for many problems that appear in various areas of physics. Actually, the book lays the foundations of the main fields of differential geometry used in theoretical physics: differentiability, Cartan differential calculus, homology and cohomology, diffeological groups, fiber bundles, and connections. The book ends with an open program on symplectic diffeology, a rich field of application of the theory. Many exercises with solutions make this book appropriate for learning the subject.
Download and read online Altruism in PDF and EPUB The author of the international bestseller Happiness makes a passionate case for altruism--and why we need it now more than ever. In Happiness, Matthieu Ricard demonstrated that true happiness is not tied to fleeting moments or sensations, but is an enduring state of soul rooted in mindfulness and compassion for others. Now he turns his lens from the personal to the global, with a rousing argument that altruism--genuine concern for the well-being of others--could be the saving grace of the 21st century. It is, he believes, the vital thread that can answer the main challenges of our time: the economy in the short term, life satisfaction in the mid-term, and environment in the long term. Ricard's message has been taken up by major economists and thinkers, including Dennis Snower, Amartya Sen, Joseph Stiglitz, and George Soros. Matthieu Ricard makes a robust and passionate case for cultivating altruistic love and compassion as the best means for simultaneously benefitting ourselves and our society. It's a fresh outlook on an ardent struggle--and one that just might make the world a better place.

Download and read online Long knives in PDF and EPUB Author Tak Paris (Chris Kasparis) chronicles the next chapter of his extra-ordinary life in search for self-realisation and a deeper understanding of the ancient origins of Romano-Celtic Britain. This book is a sequel to The Burning Ground, his first autobiographical novel, detailing his probationary spiritual path, which smelted him into a spiritual warrior for Light, Love and Power. Chris's epic journey now entices him into a mystic chess game re-enactment which was initially played out in the treacherous Dark Ages. He is unwittingly pitted against reincarnated Dark Saxon Druid souls in the blood-soaked' killing fields' of Celtic, South Wales the dynastic home-lands of the real historic King Arthur. Armed with only his purity of purpose and an overshadowing of his Daemon, he is thrust into spiritual warfare, where he battles fallen angels, shape-shifting demons and satanic attacks for the salvation of human souls. His divine purpose is propelled forward with the mystic knowledge of a past life in King Arthur's epoch and his role 'holding the light' in those Dark Ages. This novel is based on real life events, with some experiences and persons being fictional. It is historic, mythic and esoteric, tracing the earliest origins of King Arthur's Romano-British heritage, coupled with the author's Herculian challenges, as he unfolds his destiny on his Arthurian spiritual quest.
