**The Hubble Constant**

by **Neal Jackson** - **arXiv**

The author reviews the current state of determinations of the Hubble constant, which gives the length scale of the Universe by relating the velocity of objects to their distance. Many object-based measurements give H0 values of around 72-74km/s/Mpc.

**Anisotropic Hydrodynamics**

by **Michael Strickland** - **arXiv**

I review the material presented in three introductory lectures. I review the derivation of ideal and second-order viscous hydrodynamics from kinetic theory. I then show how to extend the methods used to a system that can be highly anisotropic...

**A Brief Introduction to the Infinitesimal Calculus**

by **Irving Fisher** - **Macmillan**

Although intended primarily for economic students, the book is equally adapted to the use of those who wish a short course in 'The Calculus' as a matter of general education. I have had in mind not so much the classroom as the study.

**Classical Mechanics: a Critical Introduction**

by **Michael Cohen** - **University of Pennsylvania**

This is an introduction to Classical Mechanics, which many students may find useful as a supplementary resource. Cohen emphasizes basic concepts, such as force and permissible frames of reference, which frequently are dealt with hastily.

**Observers and Splitting Structures in Relativistic Electrodynamics**

by **Bernhard Auchmann, Stefan Kurz** - **arXiv**

We introduce a relativistic splitting structure as a means to map equations of electromagnetism from curved four-dimensional space-time to 3-dimensional observer's space. We focus on mathematical structures that are motivated by the physical theory.
