Une brève histoire du temps, du Big-bang aux trous noirs

By Stephen Hawking

Voici le prime livre que Stephen Hawking ait écrit pour le grand public. Il y disclose, dans un langage available à tous, les plus récentes découvertes des astrophysiciens. Retraçant les grandes théories du cosmos depuis Galilée jusqu'à Einstein, racontant les ultimes découvertes en cosmologie, expliquant l. a. nature des trous noirs, il suggest ensuite de relever le plus grand défi de l. a. technology moderne : los angeles recherche d'une théorie permettant de concilier los angeles relativité générale et l. a. mécanique quantique. Stephen Hawking lutte depuis plus de vingt ans contre une maladie neurologique très grave. Malgré ce handicap, il a consacré sa vie à tenter de percer les secrets and techniques de l'univers et à nous faire partager ses découvertes. Un livre fascinant.

The Physics of Theism: God, Physics, and the Philosophy of Science

By Jeffrey Koperski

The Physics of Theism presents a well timed, serious research of the ways that physics intertwines with faith. Koperski brings readability to more than a few arguments together with the fine-tuning argument, naturalism, the legislation of nature, and the talk over clever Design.

  • A unmarried writer textual content supplying extraordinary scope and intensity of research of key matters in the Philosophy of faith and the Philosophy of Science
  • Critically analyses the ways that physics is introduced into play in issues of religion
  • Self-contained chapters enable readers to without delay entry particular parts of interest
  • The sector is considered one of significant curiosity, and this ebook is a well timed and well-conceived contribution to those debates
  • Written via an comprehensive pupil operating within the philosophy of physics in a mode that renders complicated arguments accessible

Quantum Electrodynamics, Second Edition: Volume 4 (Course of Theoretical Physics)

Numerous major additions were made to the second one variation, together with the operator approach to calculating the bremsstrahlung cross-section, the calcualtion of the possibilities of photon-induced pair construction and photon decay in a magnetic
field, the asymptotic type of the scattering amplitudes at excessive energies, inelastic scattering of electrons through hadrons, and the transformation of electron-positron pairs into hadrons.

Principles of Physics: From Quantum Field Theory to Classical Mechanics (Tsinghua Report and Review in Physics)

By Jun Ni

This e-book begins from a collection of universal uncomplicated rules to set up the formalisms in all parts of basic physics, together with quantum box thought, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, normal relativity, electromagnetic box, and classical mechanics. rather than the normal pedagogic manner, the writer arranges the topics and formalisms in a logical-sequential method, i.e. all of the formulation are derived from the formulation sooner than them. The formalisms also are stored self-contained. lots of the required mathematical instruments also are given within the appendices.

even though this booklet covers the entire disciplines of basic physics, the publication is concise and will be taken care of as an built-in entity. this can be in line with the aphorism that simplicity is attractiveness, unification is attractiveness, and therefore physics is attractiveness. The booklet can be used as a sophisticated textbook by way of graduate scholars. it's also compatible for physicists who desire to have an summary of primary physics.

Readership: this is often a complicated graduate or postgraduate point book.

Bernhard Riemann 1826-1866: Turning Points in the Conception of Mathematics (Modern Birkhäuser Classics)

By Detlef Laugwitz

The identify of Bernard Riemann is celebrated to mathematicians and physicists worldwide. His identify is indelibly stamped at the literature of arithmetic and physics. This extraordinary paintings, wealthy in perception and scholarship, is addressed to mathematicians, physicists, and philosophers attracted to arithmetic. It seeks to attract these readers in the direction of the underlying principles of Riemann’s paintings and to the improvement of them of their ancient context. This illuminating English-language model of the unique German version can be a huge contribution to the literature of the historical past of mathematics.

From Current Algebra to Quantum Chromodynamics: A Case for Structural Realism

By Tian Yu Cao

The arrival of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) within the early Seventies was once the most very important occasions in twentieth-century technology. This ebook examines the conceptual steps that have been the most important to the increase of QCD, putting them in historic context opposed to the historical past of debates that have been ongoing among the bootstrap process and composite modeling, and among mathematical and life like conceptions of quarks. It explains the origins of QCD in present algebra and its improvement via high-energy experiments, model-building, mathematical research and conceptual synthesis. Addressing various complicated actual, philosophical and historiographical matters intimately, this ebook will curiosity graduate scholars and researchers in physics and within the historical past and philosophy of technology.
