  • Breaking the Time Barrierby Jenny Randles

    Pocket Books 2005; US$ 19.95

    IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME.... Once widely considered an impossibility--the stuff of science fiction novels--time travel may finally be achieved in the twenty-first century. In Breaking the Time Barrier, bestselling author Jenny Randles reveals the nature of recent, breakthrough experiments that are turning this fantasy into reality. The... more...

  • Understanding Space-Timeby Robert DiSalle

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 36.00

    Presents the history of space-time physics, from Newton to Einstein, as philosophical and scientific developments. more...

  • The Reign of Relativityby Thomas Ryckman

    Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 49.99

    Universally recognized as bringing about a revolutionary transformation of the notions of space, time, and motion in physics, Einstein's theory of gravitation, known as "general relativity," was also a defining event for 20th century philosophy of science. During the decisive first ten years of the theory's existence, two main tendencies dominated... more...

  • Bangs, Crunches, Whimpers, and Shrieksby John Earman

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 129.99

    Almost from its inception, Einstein's general theory of relativity was known to sanction spacetime models harboring singularities, which involve a breakdown in the very fabric of space and time and, consequently, a failure of the known laws of physics. Here is where noted philosopher of science John Earman begins this first book-length study of a phenomenon... more...

  • The Ontology of Spacetimeby Dennis Dieks

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 180.00

    This book contains selected papers from the First International Conference on the Ontology of Spacetime. Its fourteen chapters address two main questions: first, what is the current status of the substantivalism/relationalism debate, and second, what about the prospects of presentism and becoming within present-day physics and its philosophy? The overall... more...

  • 100 Years Of Relativityby Abhay Ashtekar

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 79.00

    Thanks to Einstein's relativity theories, our notions of space and time underwent profound revisions about a 100 years ago. The resulting interplay between geometry and physics has dominated all of fundamental physics since then. This volume contains contributions from leading researchers, worldwide, who have thought deeply about the nature and consequences... more...

  • Relativity Demystifiedby David McMahon; Paul Alsing

    McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 23.00

    In Relativity Demystified a physicist explains Einstein's theory of relativity in layman's terms, minus heavy-duty discussion or formal mathematics. Author David McMahon gradually builds up readers' practical skills to a point where they can eventually solve real problems in the field of general relativity. The book offers examples that vary in... more...

  • The Universe of Fluctuationsby Burra Sidharth

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 189.00

    The failure of all attempts to unify gravitation with other fundamental interactions has lead to an abandonment of point particles and differentiable spacetime of General Relativity and Quantum Theory, including Quantum Field Theory. While Quantum Superstrings (or M-Theory) and other Quantum Gravity approaches work with a lattice like structure or... more...

  • Some new theories about time and spaceby Leon Fang; B Paul Gibson; Yi Lin

    Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2003; US$ 199.00

    This special double issue is concerned with some of the new theories of space and time. We would wish to express our thanks to the Guest Editors, Leon Feng, B. Paul Gibson and Yi Lin for accepting the invitation of the Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) of this journal to prepare it. The invitation follows the success of workshops and seminars organised... more...

  • The Sky at Einstein's Feetby William C Keel

    Springer New York 2006; US$ 34.95

    Specifically traces the impact of Einstein's ideas on astronomy, including the way we interpret observations of stars and galaxies. Includes comments from principals in important discoveries, illuminating the processes behind these results. Presents many applications of relativity that have not been shown in earlier popular-level books and illustrates... more...
