  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Relativistic Realityby J.D. Edmonds

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 154.00

    It 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...

  • On the Way to Understanding the Time Phenomenonby A.P. Levich

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 95.00

    Time 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...

  • Space-Time Chaosby S. Boccaletti; H.L. Mancini; W. Gonzalez-Vinas; J. Burguete; D.L. Valladares

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 187.00

    This 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 Physicsby Per-Olov Lowden

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 40.00

    This 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...

  • When the Universe Took a U-Turnby B. G. Sidharth

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 100.00

    This book addresses some of the baffling questions encountered at the final frontier of space and time related to particle physics and cosmology in the context of recent iconoclastic observations and developments. When particle physics stagnated in the early seventies, a new development emerged — String Theory. For the past 25 years, String... more...

  • INTRODUCTION TO THE ANISOTROPIC GEOMETRODYNAMICSby Sergey Siparov

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 153.00

    The 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...

  • Time Reversibility, Computer Simulation, Algorithms, Chaosby William G. Hoover; Carol G. Hoover

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 114.00

    A 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...

  • Fractal Space-Time and Microphysicsby L. Nottale

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 129.00

    This 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...
