- World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 139.00
The phenomenon of consciousness includes mysterious aspects providing a basis for many spiritual doctrines (including religions) and psychological practices. These directions of human knowledge are usually considered to contradict the laws of science. However, quantum mechanics - in a sense, the mysterious direction of science - allows us to include... more...
- Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 79.00
Written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this is a clear mathematical introduction to Einstein's theory of general relativity and its physical applications. Concentrating on the theory's physical consequences, this approachable textbook contains over 300 exercises to illuminate and extend the discussion. more...

In The Age of Entanglement , Louisa Gilder brings to life one of the pivotal debates in twentieth century physics. In 1935, Albert Einstein famously showed that, according to the quantum theory, separated particles could act as if intimately connected?a phenomenon which he derisively described as ?spooky action at a distance.? In that same year,... more...
- Springer 2007; US$ 47.99
This thoroughly revised 5th edition of Zeh's classic text investigates irreversible phenomena and their foundation in classical, quantum and cosmological settings. It includes new sections on the meaning of probabilities in a cosmological context, irreversible aspects of quantum computers, and various consequences of the expansion of the Universe.... more...
- Taylor and Francis 1996; US$ 35.95
Based on his famous final year undergraduate lectures on theoretical physics at Birkbeck College, Bohm presents the theory of relativity as a unified whole, making clear the reasons which led to its adoption and explaining its basic meaning. With clarity and grace, he also reveals the limited truth of some of the "common sense" assumptions which make... more...
- Little, Brown and Company 2008; US$ 9.99
What happens when something is sucked into a black hole? Does it disappear? Three decades ago, a young physicist named Stephen Hawking claimed it did-and in doing so put at risk everything we know about physics and the fundamental laws of the universe. Most scientists didn't recognize the import of Hawking's claims, but Leonard Susskind and Gerard... more...
- Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 17.95
In these inspiring lectures David Bohm explores Albert Einstein?s celebrated Theory of Relativity that transformed forever the way we think about time and space. Yet for Bohm the implications of the theory were far more revolutionary both in scope and impact even than this. Stepping back from dense theoretical and scientific detail in this eye-opening... more...

Speculation is rife that by 2012 the elusive Higgs boson will be found at the Large Hadron Collider. If found, the Higgs boson would help explain why everything has mass. But there?s more at stake?what we?re really testing is our capacity to make the universe reasonable. Our best understanding of physics is predicated on something known as quantum... more...
