From Leonardo to Oppenheimer, from candles to lasers, from cave drawings to cinema, from Stonehenge to quantum mechanics, from Genesis to the Big Bang, light has filled our thoughts, our way of life, our aesthetics, our technology, and our means for survival. Richard Weiss leads us along these paths over the past 500 light years. The way is lit by... more...

In 1690, Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) published Traité de la Lumičre, containing his renowned wave theory of light. It is considered a landmark in seventeenth-century science, for the way Huygens mathematized the corpuscular nature of light and his probabilistic conception of natural knowledge. This book discusses the development of Huygens' wave... more...

This issue brings together a number of papers under the theme of thin film flows that are generic to printing and a wide range of coating applications. These processes require the deposition of a thin layer of fluid (or polymer) onto a substrate. The simulation of these processes presents a number of numerical challenges. more...

Over the last 10 years the attention of the scientific and industrial research has been focused, with increasing interest, on the Applied MHD Technologies (Albano et al., 2000; Garnier, 2000; Li et al., 1996; Tani et al., 2000). Several applications, such as Electromagnetic Stirring, Braking and Shaping, have been studied in order to improve the steel... more...

Even though mathematics and physics have been related for centuries and this relation appears to be unproblematic, there are many questions still open: Is mathematics really necessary for physics, or could physics exist without mathematics? Should we think physically and then add the mathematics apt to formalise our physical intuition, or should we... more...

Understanding, designing and conducting experiments is at the heart of science. This text introduces the fundamental principles on which physicists should build a thorough experimental approach to their discipline. more...
- Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 114.00
This provocative and critical work addresses the question of why scientific realists and positivists consider experimental physics to be a natural and empirical science. Taking insights from contemporary science studies, continental philosophy, and the history of physics, this book describes and analyses the metaphysical presuppositions that underwrite... more...

In this day of digitalization, you can work within the technology of optics without having to fully understand the science behind it. However, for those who wish to master the science, rather than merely be its servant, it's essential to learn the nuances, such as those involved with studying fringe patterns produced by optical testing interferometers.... more...
