  • 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$ 248.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • The Universe of General Relativityby A.J. Kox; Jean Eisenstaedt

    Birkhäuser Boston 2006; US$ 199.00

    A century ago, in 1905, Albert Einstein published, ?On the Electrodynamics of M- ing Bodies,? in which the foundations were laid for the Special Theory of Relativity. Ten years later his relativistic theory of gravitation and the General Theory of Relat- ity appeared. Fifty years ago, Einstein passed away in Princeton. In the 1980s, John Stachel, then... 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 Quantum Structure Of Space And Timeby David Gross; Marc Henneaux; Alexander Sevrin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 234.00

    Ever since 1911, the Solvay Conferences have shaped modern physics. The 23rd edition, chaired by 2004 Nobel Laureate David Gross, did not break with that tradition. It gathered most of the leading figures working on the central problem of reconciling Einstein’s theory of gravity with quantum mechanics. These proceedings give a broad overview with... more...

  • Einstein, Relativity and Absolute Simultaneityby William Lane Craig; Quentin Smith

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95

    Einstein, Relativity and Absolute Simultaneity is an anthology of original essays by an international team of leading philosophers and physicists who have come together to reassess the contemporary paradigm of the relativistic concept of time. A great deal has changed since 1905 when Einstein proposed his Special Theory of Relativity, and this book... more...

  • Relativity and the Dimensionality of the Worldby Vesselin Petkov

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 179.00

    All physicists would agree that one of the most fundamental problems of the 21st century physics is the dimensionality of the world. In the four-dimensional world of Minkowski (or Minkowski spacetime) the most challenging problem is the nature of the temporal dimension. In Minkowski spacetime it is merely one of the four dimensions, which means that... more...
