  • At the Frontier of Spacetimeby Torsten Asselmeyer-Maluga

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00

    In this book, leading theorists present new contributions and reviews addressing longstanding challenges and ongoing progress in spacetime physics. In the anniversary year of Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, developed 100 years ago, this collection reflects the subsequent and continuing fruitful development of spacetime theories. The volume... more...

  • Models for Physics of the Very Small and Very Largeby Thomas J. Buckholtz

    Atlantis Press 2016; US$ 89.99

    This monograph tackles three challenges. First, show a mathematics-based meta-model that matches known elementary particles. Second, apply models, based on the meta-model, to match other known physics data. Third, predict future physics data. The math features solutions to isotropic pairs of isotropic quantum harmonic oscillators. This monograph matches... more...

  • The Demons of Scienceby Friedel Weinert

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00

    This book is the first all-encompassing exploration of the role of demons inphilosophical and scientific thought experiments. In Part I, the author explains the importance of thought experiments in science andphilosophy. Part II considers Laplace?s Demon, whose claim is that the world iscompletely deterministic. Part III introduces Maxwell?s Demon,... more...

  • Black Holes: The Reith Lecturesby Stephen Hawking

    Transworld 2016; US$ 5.63

    ?It is said that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more true than in the case of black holes. Black holes are stranger than anything dreamed up by science fiction writers.? In 2016 Professor Stephen Hawking delivered the BBC Reith Lectures on a subject that has fascinated him for decades ? black holes. In these flagship... more...

  • Structure Formation in Modified Gravity Cosmologiesby Alexandre Barreira

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This unique thesis covers all aspects oftheories of gravity beyond Einstein?s General Relativity, from setting up theequations that describe the evolution of perturbations, to determining thebest-fitting parameters using constraints like the microwave backgroundradiation, and ultimately to the later stages of structure formation usingstate-of-the-art... more...

  • Infrared Non-local Modifications of General Relativityby Ermis Mitsou

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents significant new results on the problem of understanding the origin of dark energy in cosmology. The work develops an original approach based on modifications of General Relativity at cosmological scales, introducing non­-local effective terms that can in principle emerge from fundamental local theories. Both the phenomenological... more...

  • Observar las estrellasby Grupo Astrófilo Lariano

    De Vecchi Ediciones 2016; US$ 3.99

    * Una verdadera guía del cielo, que se extiende (si es necesario) hasta elhemisferio austral, el más explorado en la actualidad.* Estrellas, nebulosas, galaxias, supernovas, estrellas variables y dobles, etc. Conozca las maravillas del universo no sólo por el hecho de haber leído su descripción, sino por haberlas visto con sus propios ojos, siguiendo... more...

  • Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines, Second Editionby Jim Al-Khalili

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 44.95

    Bringing the material up to date, Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines, Second Edition captures the new ideas and discoveries made in physics since the publication of the best-selling first edition. While retaining the popular format and style of its predecessor, this edition explores the latest developments in high-energy astroparticle physics... more...

  • Black Hole Blues and Other Songs from Outer Spaceby Janna Levin

    Random House 2016; US$ 25.37

    The full inside story of the detection of gravitational waves at LIGO, one of the most ambitious feats in scientific history. Travel around the world 100 billion times. A strong gravitational wave will briefly change that distance by less than the thickness of a human hair. We have perhaps less than a few tenths of a second to perform this measurement.... more...

  • Traveling at the Speed of Thoughtby Daniel Kennefick

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 52.00

    Since Einstein first described them nearly a century ago, gravitational waves have been the subject of more sustained controversy than perhaps any other phenomenon in physics. These as yet undetected fluctuations in the shape of space-time were first predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity, but only now, at the dawn of the twenty-first... more...
