#### Einstein's Relativity

Springer 2012; US$ 129.00This richly illustrated book is unique in bringing Einstein's relativity to a higher level for the non-specialist than has ever been attempted before, using nothing more than grade-school algebra. Bondi's approach with spacetime diagrams is simplified and expanded, clarifying the famous asymmetric aging-of-twins paradox. Einstein's theory... more...

#### Minkowski Spacetime

Springer 2010; US$ 189.00Celebrating the one hundredth anniversary of the 1909 publication of Minkowski 's seminal paper "Space and Time," this volume includes a fresh translation as well as the original in German, and a number of contributed papers on the still-controversial subject. more...

#### Polar Inertia

SAGE Publications 1999; US$ 58.00Paul 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 1973; US$ 88.00This 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$ 129.00This 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...

#### Relativistic Reality

World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 154.00It 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 Phenomenon

World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 95.00Time 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...

#### Some Comments on the Foundations of Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 40.00This 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 Chaos

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 187.00This 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...
