Product Description


I know the author both as his PhD Thesis supervisor and as a colleague. I find it a pleasure to write a few lines about his recently published book titled 'Scientific Writings'. Essentially, it is a Physics book covering a spectrum of topics from relativity to terrorism. The author investigates various facets of Einsteinian relativity and some aspects of Maxwell Eelectromagnetic Theory; later he discusses the hidden simplicity of complex numbers; later still, using mathematical models, the author attempts explaining the developments in economics. His scrutiny of the portrait of Mona Lisa with reference to Quantum Mechanics and his mathematical analysis of terrorism (which is really the demarche of the dispossessed) and how it can be curtailed are quite interesting. The language is well orchestrated and the stream of thought and consciousness, is quite impressive and compelling. All in all, it is an eruditely performed piece of work. --Professor Dr G Murtaza

Format: Hardcover
This book is about basic science and its application to more mundane problems. It is expressly recommended for Graduate and PG Students. It would be rather presumptuous to write a review of one's own book so I would rather warn the general reader of the reviewer Mr Aaron Clauset, who has for some very malicious reason written a mendacious review at the behest of an anarchist Mr Zahir Ebrahim and his side kick Ehsan Legahri. The review is not Aaron Clauset's; he has cut and pasted from the postings of Zahir, a gross academic misconduct and that man AC has the temerity to blame me. AC has indulged in
1- Gross DMCA infringement and WIPO violation both criminal offenses.
2- Rank Slander and defamation again culpable crimes punishable under law.

Mr Aaron Clauset is warned to either redact his inanity which he professes to be a review or face three years of imprisonment together with considerable fine, when he is sued for slander.
I apologize from the readers for my public defense , but it had to be done in the larger interest.
Thanks for your time Dear Readers!

Dr. IR Durrani

1.0 out of 5 stars Flagrant plagiarism 22 Oct. 2011
By Aaron J Clauset - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is flagrant plagiarism of previously published scientific articles by people other than Mr. I.R. Durrani.

All 17 chapters are copied, typically verbatim, from the scientific literature in physics and a few other places. Plagiarized work includes papers by S.C. Benzahra (Chapter 1), V.P. Dmitriyev (Chapters 2 and 3), M.V. Lokajicek (Chapter 4), P.M. Brown (Chapter 5), Alfred Ziegler (Chapter 6), Gordon McCabe (Chapter 7), Jaroslaw Zalesny (Chapter 8), Andrei Kirilyuk (Chapter 9), Andrei P. Kirilyuk (Chapter 10), Bikas K. Chakrabarti (Chapter 11), Mogens Jensen et al. (Chapter 12), A. S. Elgazzar et al. (Chapter 13), Theodore E. Liolios (Chapter 14), Serge Galam and Alain Mauger (Chapter 15), Diederik Aerts (Chapter 16), and Slobodan Prvanovic (Chapter 17).

Even the introduction is plagiarized, largely from The World of Physics (Vol 1-Aristotelian Cosmos and the Newtonian System; Vol 2-Einstein Universe and the Bohr Atom; Vol 3-Evolutionary Cosmos and the Limits of Science).

You can read more about Durrani's plagiarism efforts by googling for "masterpiece of plagiarism" (first hit) and reading the in-depth analysis of Zahir Ebrahim and Ehsan Leghari who uncovered and documented these offenses.


Amazon, if you read these reviews, you should remove this book from your inventory. Do not support plagiarism.
