#### 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$ 70.00A 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$ 159.00This 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...

#### 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$ 88.00This 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$ 79.00This 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$ 95.00It 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$ 76.00Time 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...

#### Space-Time Chaos

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 115.00This 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...
