Library of Shame

Two collages of book covers for your interest and amusement desktop wallpaper.



At http://www.isbnlib.com/listp/naschie/ there are nine pages of books listed that mention El Naschie. Included are snippets of the text containing his name, and images of the book covers. Here we present two collages of the book covers. Click them for huge versions.

Readers, go have a look at the books on that site. Anything interesting there?

It is funny that El Naschie is cited in Food Mixing: Principles and Applications.



Here is the snippet:

... Aref & El Naschie 1995) such as mixing in physiological flows, in microfluidic channels, in geophysical fluids such as molten rock, and even in tidal ...


Nice. A reader found the food-mixing reference:

Hassan Aref, Chaotic advection in perspective, Chaos, Solitons & Fractals Special Issue: Chaos Applied to Fluid Mixing. Volume 4, Issue 6, June 1994, Pages 745-748

The reader explains

Ha! Actually, the snippet above is misleading out of context. The reference is to a Special Issue of Chaos, Solitons & Fractals edited by Hassan Aref on chaotic mixing (which does have applications in food processing and has nothing to do with mystical cantorian spacetimes). However, The Great Man being the way he is, added his own name to the list of editors of this Special Issue, presumably because he could as Editor-in-Chief of the journal. So, now people cite the Special Issue with Aref & El Naschie as the co-editors...

  2. I'm amazed, another highly respected physicist (Hasan Aref) has been a victim of the great man.
