  • 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...

  • The Labyrinth of Timeby Michael Lockwood

    OUP Oxford 2005; US$ 16.99 US$ 14.61

    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...

  • 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$ 146.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
