  • 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$ 70.00

    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...

  • Einstein's Relativityby Fred I Cooperstock; Steven Tieu

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 159.00

    This 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 Inertiaby Paul Virilio

    SAGE Publications 1999; US$ 46.00

    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 2012; 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 1975; US$ 88.00

    This 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 Microphysicsby L. Nottale

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 79.00

    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...

  • Relativistic Realityby J.D. Edmonds

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 95.00

    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$ 76.00

    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$ 115.00

    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...
