The essays in this book look at the question of whether physics can be based on information, or ? as John Wheeler phrased it ? whether we can get ?It from Bit?. They are based on the prize-winning essays submitted to the FQXi essay competition of the same name, which drew over 180 entries. The eighteen contributions address topics as diverse as quantum... more...

Hidden from human view, accessible only to sensitive receivers attached to huge radio telescopes, the invisible universe beyond our senses continues to fascinate and intrigue our imaginations. Closer to home, in the Milky Way galaxy, radio astronomers listen patiently to the ticking of pulsars that tell of star death and states of matter of awesome... more...

This book tells the fascinating story of the people and events behind the turbulent changes in attitudes to quantum theory in the second half of the 20 th century. The huge success of quantum mechanics as a predictive theory has been accompanied, from the very beginning, by doubts and controversy about its foundations and interpretation. This book... more...

Die Idee zu diesem Buch entstand aus einem Unbehagen heraus. Schon immer hatte ich dieses gespürt, wenn ich mit Freunden, Bekannten oder Kollegen, die den Naturwiss- schaften fremd gegenüberstanden, ins Philosophieren geriet und dabei versuchte, einen Einblick in das Weltbild eines Physikers zu geben. Hinterher war ich immer frustriert. Zunächst hatte... more...

Camille Flammarion (1842-1925) began his career at 16 as a human computer under the great mathematician U. J. J. Le Verrier at the Paris Observatory. He soon tired of the drudgery; he was drawn to more romantic vistas, and at 19 wrote a book on an idea that he was to make his own?the habitability of other worlds. There followed a career as France?s... more...

Presenting the first unified treatment of limit theorems for multiple sums of independent random variables, this volume fills an important gap in the field. Several new results are introduced, even in the classical setting, as well as some new approaches that are simpler than those already established in the literature. In particular, new proofs of... more...

This book concentrates on the properties of the stationary states in chaotic systems of particles or fluids, leaving aside the theory of the way they can be reached. The stationary states of particles or of fluids (understood as probability distributions on microscopic configurations or on the fields describing continua) have received important new... more...
