#### Ideengeschichte der Physik

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 59.99Die Ideengeschichte der Physik geht neue Wege, indem sie den umfangreichen historischen Stoff nicht additiv darstellt, sondern wissenschaftstheoretisch reflektiert und nach thematischen Leitlinien (Materievorstellungen, Raum und Zeit, Erhaltungskonzepte, Extremalprinzipien, Theorie und Experiment) strukturiert. Damit vermittelt diese Darstellung im... more...

#### Born-Jordan Quantization

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00This book presents a comprehensive mathematical study ofthe operators behind the Born?Jordan quantization scheme. The Schrödinger andHeisenberg pictures of quantum mechanics are equivalent only if the Born?Jordanscheme is used. Thus, Born?Jordan quantization provides the only physicallyconsistent quantization scheme, as opposed to the Weyl quantization... more...

#### Making Sense of Quantum Mechanics

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 69.99This book explains, in simple terms, with a minimum of mathematics, why things can appear to be in two places at the same time, why correlations between simultaneous events occurring far apart cannot be explained by local mechanisms, and why, nevertheless, the quantum theory can be understood in terms of matter... more...

#### Bodies and Media

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99This book presents a recasting of Aristotle?s theory of spatial displacement of inanimate objects. Aristotle?s claim that projectiles are actively carried by the media through which they move (such as air or water) is well known and has drawn the attention of commentators from ancient to modern times. What is lacking, however, is a systematic investigation... more...

#### Breakthrough!

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 34.99This unique volume by two renowned astrophotographers unveils the science and history behind 100 of the most significant astronomical images of all time. The authors have carefully selected their list of images from across time and technology to bring to the reader the most relevant photographic images spanning all eras of modern astronomical history.... more...

#### The Bumpy Road

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99This book examines the different areas of knowledge, traditions, and conceptual resources that contributed to the building of Max Planck?s theory of radiation. It presents an insightful comparative analysis that not only sheds light upon a fundamental chapter in the history of modern physics, but also enlarges our understanding of how theoreticians... more...

#### The Complex Itinerary of Leibniz?s Planetary Theory

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 139.00This book presents new insights into Leibniz?s research on planetary theory and his system of pre-established harmony. Although some aspects of this theory have been explored in the literature, others are less well known. In particular, the book offers new contributions on the connection between the planetary theory and the theory of gravitation.... more...

#### Decoding the Mechanisms of Antikythera Astronomical Device

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 109.00This book presents a systematic design methodology for decoding the interior structure of the Antikythera mechanism, an astronomical device from ancient Greece. The historical background, surviving evidence and reconstructions of the mechanism are introduced, and the historical development of astronomical achievements and various astronomical instruments... more...

#### The Dialectic Relation Between Physics and Mathematics in the XIXth Century

Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 119.00Bringing together contributions from leading experts, and offering much-needed insight, this book analyses historical problems in the use of mathematics in physics, the use of physics in mathematics and the emergence of the discipline of Mathematical Physics. more...

#### The Electric Theories of J. Clerk Maxwell

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 109.00In this volume Pierre Duhem first gives an overview of 19 th century electricity and magnetism. Next, he applies his keen historical, philosophical, and physical intuition to critiquing Maxwell?s theories, especially his electromagnetic theory of light and the ad hoc introduction of displacement current, which he considers too much a product of... more...
