#### Time Reversibility, Computer Simulation, Algorithms, Chaos

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 70.00 US$ 57.40A small army of physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and engineers has joined forces to attack a classic problem, the “reversibility paradox”, with modern tools. This book describes their work from the perspective of computer simulation, emphasizing the authors' approach to the problem of understanding the compatibility, and even inevitability,... more...

#### Polar Inertia

SAGE Publications 1999; US$ 46.00Paul Virilio demonstrates how technology has made inertia the defining condition of modernity. An instantaneous present has replaced space and the sovereignty of territory - everything happens without the need to go anywhere. more...

#### Introduction to Relativity

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 54.95Introduction to Relativity is intended to teach physics and astronomy majors at the freshman, sophomore or upper-division levels how to think about special and general relativity in a fundamental, but accessible, way. Designed to render any reader a "master of relativity", everything on the subject is comprehensible and derivable from first principles.... more...

#### The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time

Cambridge University Press 1975; US$ 88.00 US$ 72.16This 1973 book discusses Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and its predictions concerning black holes and singularities in space-time itself. more...

#### Fractal Space-Time and Microphysics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 79.00 US$ 64.78This is the first detailed account of a new approach to microphysics based on two leading ideas: (i) the explicit dependence of physical laws on scale encountered in quantum physics, is the manifestation of a fundamental principle of nature, scale relativity. This generalizes Einstein's principle of (motion) relativity to scale transformations;... more...

#### On the Way to Understanding the Time Phenomenon

World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 76.00 US$ 62.32Time is considered as an independent entity which cannot be reduced to the concept of matter, space or field. The point of discussion is the “time flow” conception of N A Kozyrev (1908–1983), an outstanding Russian astronomer and natural scientist. In addition to a review of the experimental studies of “the active properties... more...

#### Relativistic Reality

World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 95.00 US$ 77.90It now appears that the old argument about Lorentz vs Galileo relativity is passing into history. The Lorentz symmetry may soon become obsolete itself just as the Galileo symmetry did about 1900. The tremendous successes of QED represent real progress in our quest to understand nature. The answer is not to go as most “outsiders” but to... more...

#### Space-Time Chaos

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 115.00 US$ 94.30This book provides a comprehensive overview of the topics related to characterization, control and synchronization of complex spatiotemporal phenomena, from both a theoretical and an experimental point of view. It describes applications of these processes in applied mathematics, signal analysis, nonlinear optics, fluid dynamics, chemical reactions,... more...

#### Some Comments on the Foundations of Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 52.00 US$ 42.64This pedagogical monograph describes some of the fundamental laws of physics. The derivations are, however, obtained from a rather unconventional point of view. The Lorentz transformations and the special theory of relativity are derived without mentioning the phenomenon of light, and the de Broglie relations in the wave–corpuscle parallelism... more...

#### Space-Time Symmetry and Quantum Yang - Mills Gravity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 78.00 US$ 63.96Yang–Mills gravity is a new theory, consistent with experiments, that brings gravity back to the arena of gauge field theory and quantum mechanics in flat space-time. It provides solutions to long-standing difficulties in physics, such as the incompatibility between Einstein's principle of general coordinate invariance and modern schemes... more...
