  • The Ontology of Spacetimeby Dennis Dieks

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 180.00

    This book contains selected papers from the First International Conference on the Ontology of Spacetime. Its fourteen chapters address two main questions: first, what is the current status of the substantivalism/relationalism debate, and second, what about the prospects of presentism and becoming within present-day physics and its philosophy? The overall... more...

  • The Physical Basis of The Direction of Timeby H. Dieter Zeh

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 59.95

    This thoroughly revised 5th edition of Zeh's classic text investigates irreversible phenomena and their foundation in classical, quantum and cosmological settings. It includes new sections on the meaning of probabilities in a cosmological context, irreversible aspects of quantum computers, and various consequences of the expansion of the Universe.... 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...

  • The Quantum Structure Of Space And Timeby David Gross; Marc Henneaux; Alexander Sevrin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 35.00

    Ever since 1911, the Solvay Conferences have shaped modern physics. The 23rd edition, chaired by 2004 Nobel Laureate David Gross, did not break with that tradition. It gathered most of the leading figures working on the central problem of reconciling Einstein’s theory of gravity with quantum mechanics. These proceedings give a broad overview with... more...

  • Relativistic Realityby J.D. Edmonds

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 89.00

    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...

  • Relativity and the Dimensionality of the Worldby Vesselin Petkov

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 179.00

    All physicists would agree that one of the most fundamental problems of the 21st century physics is the dimensionality of the world. In the four-dimensional world of Minkowski (or Minkowski spacetime) the most challenging problem is the nature of the temporal dimension. In Minkowski spacetime it is merely one of the four dimensions, which means that... more...

  • Relativity and the Nature of Spacetimeby Vesselin Petkov

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 79.95

    This book develops a thorough analysis of relativistic effects to address the question of what is the nature (the ontological status) of spacetime. In this new edition, arguments are strengthened, and new developments in the field are presented and integrated. more...

  • SCALE RELATIVITY AND FRACTAL SPACE-TIMEby Laurent Nottale

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 137.00

    This 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...

  • Space-Time Chaosby S. Boccaletti; H.L. Mancini; W. Gonzalez-Vinas; J. Burguete; D.L. Valladares

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 108.00

    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...

  • Space-Time Symmetry and Quantum Yang - Mills Gravityby Jong-Ping Hsu; Leonardo Hsu

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 74.00

    Yang–Mills gravity is a new theory, consistent with experiments, that brings gravity back to the arena of gauge field theory and quantum mechanics in flat space-time. It provides solutions to long-standing difficulties in physics, such as the incompatibility between Einstein's principle of general coordinate invariance and modern schemes... more...
