  • The Labyrinth of Timeby Michael Lockwood

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 24.99

    Modern 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...

  • 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...

  • Topics in the Foundations of General Relativity and Newtonian Gravitation Theoryby David B. Malament

    University of Chicago Press 2012; US$ 44.00

    In 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, 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...

  • Minkowski Spacetimeby Vesselin Petkov

    Springer 2010; US$ 189.00

    Celebrating 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...

  • Einstein's Relativityby Fred I Cooperstock; Steven Tieu

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    This 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...

  • Polar Inertiaby Paul Virilio

    SAGE Publications 1999; US$ 58.00

    Paul 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 Relativityby John B. Kogut

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 54.95

    Introduction 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-Timeby S. W. Hawking; G. F. R. Ellis

    Cambridge University Press 1973; US$ 84.00

    This 1973 book discusses Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and its predictions concerning black holes and singularities in space-time itself. more...

  • The Yoga of Time Travelby Fred Alan Wolf

    Quest Books 2012; US$ 17.95

    Buddha said he could move backward through time, observes theoretical physicist Fred Alan Wolf. Time travel is not just science fiction; it may actually be possible. Wolf draws on yoga and quantum physics to show that time is a flexible projection of mind. Cheating time, he says, is an ancient metaphysical idea from the Vedas having to do with moving... more...
