#### SCALE RELATIVITY AND FRACTAL SPACE-TIME

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 237.00This 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$ 153.00The 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

Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 24.99Modern 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$ 114.00A 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...
