Discounts for Students, Libraries and Educators


The Cheniere Press logo "passing the baton" symbolizes the transfer of vital knowledge to a new generation of scientists, engineers and researchers for the betterment of humanity. 

We are well aware that with the high cost of tuition, many students find it difficult to pay even for necessary textbooks, much less extra books on a physics so fresh and new that it isn't in their university curriculum yet.

In recognition of the importance of putting the new physics into the hands of the younger generation, Cheniere Press's book sponsorship program matches donors with deserving students.
