  • From Varying Couplings to Fundamental Physicsby Carlos Martins; Paolo Molaro

    Springer 2011; US$ 259.00

    Nature is characterized by a number of physical laws and fundamental dimensionless couplings. These determine the properties of our physical universe, from the size of atoms, cells and mountains to the ultimate fate of the universe as a whole. Yet it is rather remarkable how little we know about them. The constancy of physical laws is one of the cornerstones... more...

  • Self-Organized Criticality in Astrophysicsby Markus J. Aschwanden

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    Markus Aschwanden introduces the concept of self-organized criticality (SOC) and shows that due to its universality and ubiquity it is a law of nature for which he derives the theoretical framework and specific physical models in this book. He begins by providing an overview of the many diverse phenomena in nature which may be attributed to SOC behaviour.... more...
