#### Introduction to 3+1 Numerical Relativity

OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 74.99This book is a self-contained introduction to the field of numerical relativity. Starting from basic general relativity, it introduces all the concepts and tools necessary for the fully relativistic simulation of astrophysical systems with strong and dynamical gravitational fields. more...

#### Time Travel and Warp Drives

University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 18.00To see video demonstrations of key concepts from the book, please visit this website: http://www.press.uchicago.edu/sites/timewarp.index.html. Sci-fi makes it look so easy. Receive a distress call from Alpha Centauri? No problem: punch the warp drive and you're there in minutes. Facing a catastrophe that can't be averted? Just pop back in... more...

#### Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines, Second Edition

CRC Press 2016; US$ 44.95Bringing the material up to date, Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines, Second Edition captures the new ideas and discoveries made in physics since the publication of the best-selling first edition. While retaining the popular format and style of its predecessor, this edition explores the latest developments in high-energy astroparticle physics... more...

#### SCALE RELATIVITY AND FRACTAL SPACE-TIME

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 146.00 US$ 132.86This book provides a comprehensive survey of the development of the theory of scale relativity and fractal space-time. It suggests an original solution to the disunified nature of the classical-quantum transition in physical systems, enabling the basis of quantum mechanics on the principle of relativity, provided this principle is extended to scale... more...

#### INTRODUCTION TO THE ANISOTROPIC GEOMETRODYNAMICS

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 116.00 US$ 105.56The aim of the book is to provide a new and fruitful approach to the challenging problems of modern physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. The well-known observations of the flat rotation curves of spiral galaxies and of the gravitational lensing effect greatly exceeding the expectations based on the classical GRT can be explained without bringing in... more...

#### The Labyrinth of Time

OUP Oxford 2007; US$ 16.99Modern physics has revealed the universe as a much stranger place than we could have imagined. The puzzle at the centre of our knowledge of the universe is time. Michael Lockwood takes the reader on a fascinating journey into the nature of things. He investigates philosophical questions about past, present, and future, our experience of time, and the... more...

#### Topics in the Foundations of General Relativity and Newtonian Gravitation Theory

University of Chicago Press 2012; US$ 44.00In Topics in the Foundations of General Relativity and Newtonian Gravitation Theory , David B. Malament presents the basic logical-mathematical structure of general relativity and considers a number of special topics concerning the foundations of general relativity and its relation to Newtonian gravitation theory. These special topics include the... more...

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

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 70.00 US$ 63.70A 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...

#### Einstein's Relativity

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 130.17This richly illustrated book is unique in exploring Einstein's relativity at a higher level for the non-specialist than ever before, using nothing more than grade-school algebra. It also explains how the theory applies to phenomena such as black holes. 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...
