  • Self-Organized Criticality in Astrophysicsby Markus J. Aschwanden

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    Markus Aschwanden introduces the concept of self-organized criticality (SOC) and shows that due to its universality and ubiquity it is a law of nature for which he derives the theoretical framework and specific physical models in this book. He begins by providing an overview of the many diverse phenomena in nature which may be attributed to SOC behaviour.... more...

  • Physical Processes in Circumstellar Disks around Young Starsby Paulo J. V. Garcia

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 48.00

    Circumstellar disks are vast expanses of dust that form around new stars in the earliest stages of their birth. Predicted by astronomers as early as the eighteenth century, they weren?t observed until the late twentieth century, when interstellar imaging technology enabled us to see nascent stars hundreds of light years away. Since then, circumstellar... more...

Galileo Galilei built a telescope and spotted craters on the moon and sunspots... more...

  • Der Alte mit dem Würfelby Anna Ijjas

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2011; US$ 40.77

    Es gibt kaum ein metaphysisches Problem, das nicht unter Berufung auf die Quantenmechanik gelöst wurde ? angeblich jedenfalls. Dies ist auf den ersten Blick überraschend, denn bei der Quantenmechanik handelt es sich um eine physikalische Theorie. Das Ziel der Quanten-Metaphysik besteht aber in der Regel darin, weltanschauliche Positionen empirisch... more...
