There is no "science of coasters." The science that coasters operate on is physics, however. Any good physics book or website can help you.

If you have time, go pick up the book "Roller Coaster." I forgot the author, but it's copyright 1998, and has a chapter about the physics.

I really need something...
That something is...
Snake Venom, Metal Dog, and Mad Cow!

If you need some examples of how math relates to coasters, then look in your math book.  My Algebra 2 book years ago had some rollercoaster problems in it.
