  • Ideengeschichte der Physikby Wilfried Kuhn; Oliver Schwarz

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 59.99

    Die 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...

  • Making Sense of Quantum Mechanicsby Jean Bricmont

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 69.99

    This 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...

  • Born-Jordan Quantizationby Maurice A. de Gosson

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00

    This 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...

  • The Quantum Handshakeby John G Cramer

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 69.99

    This book shines bright light into the dim recesses of quantum theory, where the mysteries of entanglement, nonlocality, and wave collapse have motivated some to conjure up multiple universes, and others to adopt a "shut up and calculate" mentality. After an extensive and accessible introduction to quantum mechanics and its history, the author turns... more...

  • Philosophy of Science for Scientistsby Lars-Göran Johansson

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 69.99

    This textbook offers an introduction to the philosophy of science. It helps undergraduate students from the natural, the human and social sciences to gain an understanding of what science is, how it has developed, what its core traits are, how to distinguish between science and pseudo-science and to discover what a scientific attitude is. It argues... more...

  • Philosophie und Physik am außerschulischen Lernortby Annika Kruse; Cornelia Denz

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2015; US$ 9.99

    Dieses essential zeigt am Beispiel des innovativen Projekts ?Selberdenken!? auf, wie eine Verbindung von Naturwissenschaft und Philosophie auf der Basis von forschend-entdeckendem Lernen und explorativem Experimentieren an Schule und Hochschule gelingt. Fragen wie ?Was denkt man, wenn man nach den Bausteinen der Materie sucht?? und ?Wie schafft man... more...

  • Essays on the History of Mechanical Engineeringby Francesco Sorge; Giuseppe Genchi

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 109.00

    This book treats several subjects from the History of Mechanism and Machine Science, and also contains an illustrative presentation of the Museum of Engines and Mechanisms of the University of Palermo, Italy, which houses a collection of various pieces of machinery from the last 150 years. The various sections deal with some eminent scientists... more...

  • Breakthrough!by Robert Gendler; R. Jay GaBany

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 34.99

    This 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 Complex Itinerary of Leibniz?s Planetary Theoryby Paolo Bussotti

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 139.00

    This 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 Deviceby Jian-Liang Lin; Hong-Sen Yan

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 109.00

    This 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...
