This volume consists of a selection of the Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures presented annually at the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. Delivered by eminent scientists and scholars, including Nobel laureates, they cover a broad spectrum of subjects in physics, chemistry, life science, mathematics, historiography and social issues.This distinguished memorial lecture series was inaugurated by the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities following an international symposium held in Jerusalem in March 1979 to commemorate the centenary of Albert Einstein´s birth. Considering that Einstein´s interests, activities and influence were not restricted to theoretical physics but spanned broad fields affecting society and the welfare of humankind, it was felt that these memorial lectures should be addressed to scientists, scholars and erudite laypersons rather than to physicists alone.Contents:What Can Pure Mathematics Offer to Society?

Im Rahmen des deutsch-israelischen Austauschprojektes ALLTAG ist eine weitere literarische Perle im VERLAGSHAUS J. FRANK BERLIN entstanden: die Lyriksammlung ´Märchenland´. Die beteiligten Autoren setzten sich mit den Märchen der Gebrüder Grimm auseinander, brachten ihre prosaische Form auf eine lyrische Ebene und begaben sich in die mitunter ambivalenten Bereiche des kulturellen Gedächtnisses in Deutschland und Israel. In beiden Kulturen spielen Märchen eine bedeutende Rolle. Die Gedichte der deutschen und israelischen Autoren werden von den Illustrationen junger israelischer Künstler der Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem ergänzt. Auch den Illustratoren unter der künstlerischen Leitung von Felix Scheinberger dienten die Originalmärchen als Inspirationsquelle; die Ergebnisse stehen gleichberechtigt neben den Gedichten. In Wort und Bild werden die Märchen ihrer Vergangenheit entrissen und inhaltlich wie formal in die Gegenwart überführt. Die Anthologie zeigt nicht zuletzt, dass den Themen der Märchen Urbilder zugrunde liegen, die - ganz ohne überbordende Interpretationsversuche - auch den heutigen Alltag in Israel und Deutschland zu spiegeln imstande sind; dies zeigt sich an den über zwanzig farbigen Illustrationen ebenso wie an den Gedichten.
Praise for the Third Edition ´´Researchers of any kind of extremal combinatorics or theoretical computer science will welcome the new edition of this book.´´ - MAA Reviews Maintaining a standard of excellence that establishes The Probabilistic Method as the leading reference on probabilistic methods in combinatorics, the Fourth Edition continues to feature a clear writing style, illustrative examples, and illuminating exercises. The new edition includes numerous updates to reflect the most recent developments and advances in discrete mathematics and the connections to other areas in mathematics, theoretical computer science, and statistical physics. Emphasizing the methodology and techniques that enable problem-solving, The Probabilistic Method, Fourth Edition begins with a description of tools applied to probabilistic arguments, including basic techniques that use expectation and variance as well as the more advanced applications of martingales and correlation inequalities. The authors explore where probabilistic techniques have been applied successfully and also examine topical coverage such as discrepancy and random graphs, circuit complexity, computational geometry, and derandomization of randomized algorithms. Written by two well-known authorities in the field, the Fourth Edition features: Additional exercises throughout with hints and solutions to select problems in an appendix to help readers obtain a deeper understanding of the best methods and techniques New coverage on topics such as the Local Lemma, Six Standard Deviations result in Discrepancy Theory, Property B, and graph limits Updated sections to reflect major developments on the newest topics, discussions of the hypergraph container method, and many new references and improved results The Probabilistic Method, Fourth Edition is an ideal textbook for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level students majoring in mathematics, computer science, operations research, and statistics. The Fourth Edition is also an excellent reference for researchers and combinatorists who use probabilistic methods, discrete mathematics, and number theory.

The New York Times –bestselling author “has focused his internationally recognized expertise and clarity of vision on . . . this evolving terrorist tactic” (Benjamin Netanyahu). At a time when Israel is under persistent attack—on the battlefield, by international organizations, and in the court of public opinion—Alan Dershowitz presents a powerful case for Israel’s just war against terrorism. In the spirit of his international bestseller, The Case for Israel , Dershowitz shows why Israel’s struggle against Hamas is a fight not only to protect its own citizens, but for all democracies. The nation-state of the Jewish people is providing a model for all who are threatened by terrorist groups—such as ISIS, al-Qaeda, and Boko Haram. Having himself been in one of the Hamas terror tunnels, Dershowitz explains why Israel had no choice but to send in ground troops to protect its civilians against Hamas death squads. Dershowitz wrote this book to warn the world that unless Hamas’s strategy of building terror tunnels and firing rockets from behind human shields is denounced and stopped—by the international community, the media, the academy, and good people of all religions, ethnicities, and nationalities—it will be coming soon “to a theater near you.” Covering all the hot-button issues—from the BDS movement, to the rise of anti-Semitism, to the charge of war crimes, to the prospects of peace— Terror Tunnels: The Case for Israel’s Just War Against Hamas is a must-read for all who care about Israel, peace in the Mideast, human rights, and fairness.
