Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines

This book is meant for all those peoplewhich is pretty much everyone I knowwho are curious about such exotic sounding concepts as black holes, space warps, the Big Bang, time travel and parallel universes. In writing the book I have asked myself whether complete non-experts can learn a little about some of the ideas of modern physics without feeling the urge to check that their IQ is up to the task before embarking. The subject matter of the book has been covered elsewhere at many different levels. At the very top is the advanced text or monograph for the practitioner in the field. This is the sorcerers spell book, decipherable only by the privileged few. Then comes the textbook aimed at the university physics student.

Substance: Its Nature and Existence

Substance: Its Nature and Existence is one of the first accessible introductions to the history and contemporary debates surrounding the idea of substance. An important and often complex issue, substance is at the heart of Western philosophy. Substances are distinguished from other kinds of entities such as properties, events, times, and places. This book investigates the very nature and existence of individual substances, including both living things and inanimate objects.

NASA Mooned America

This is Ralph Rene's explosive book NASA Mooned America (1994) which uses common sense physics and innovative thinking to prove that NASA never put a man on the moon and that the whole Apollo saga was just a Hollywood-like production done with the help of the CIA and other shadowy organizations.

Hubble 15 Years of Discovery

Hubble is a book that formed part of the European Space Agency's 15th anniversary celebration activities for the 1990 launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. Its main emphasis is on the exquisite Hubble images that have enabled astronomers to gain entirely new insights into the workings of a huge range of different astronomical objects. Hubble has provided the visual overview of the underlying astrophysical processes taking place in these objects, ranging from planets in our Solar System to galaxies in the young Universe. This book shows the close relationship between the results of great scientific value and of eye-catching beauty and artistic potential.

The Feynman Lectures on Physics

This volume includes many exciting concepts of Physics, concentrating on the theory of quantum mechanics and presenting the central ideas in a comprehensible manner. Summary Of The Book The Feynman Lectures on Physics (Volume 3) is a comprehensive physics textbook by Richard P. Feynman, Robert B. Leighton, and Matthew Sands, based upon the lectures given by Feynman to undergraduate students at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) from 1961 to 1963, and also some lectures given to the sophomore class in May of 1964. This volume focuses primarily on quantum mechanics. The Feynman Lectures are considered to be one of the best and most sophisticated college level introductions to physics. The book contains 21 chapters in all. Some of these are Quantum Behavior, The Hamiltonian Matrix, Probability Amplitudes, Angular Momentum, Symmetry and The Conservation Laws, Semiconductors, Operators, and The Schrdinger Equation. A wide array of concepts have been discussed within these chapters, ranging from the relatively simpler ones like principles of quantum mechanics, crystal diffraction, the exclusion principle, and probability amplitudes, to the more complicated topics like superconductivity, the Meissner effect, measuring a nuclear spin, and quantum mechanics of angular momentum. The book is replete with experiments and diagrams to explain the concepts.

One Two Three ... Infinity facts and speculations of science

Nuclear physicist George Gamow takes the reader on an expedition through the problems, pleasures and puzzles of modern science. Among the topics scrutinized are the macrocosm and the microcosm, theory of numbers, relativity of space and time, entropy, genes, atomic structure, nuclear fission, and the origin of the solar system. In the pages of this book readers grapple with such crucial matters as whether it is possible to bend space, why a rocket shrinks, the "end of the world problem," excursions in the fourth dimension and a host of other topics.

Relativity the special and the general theory amazon

2010 Reprint of 1920 First English Edition. First English translation of Einstein's theory of relativity. In this work Einstein intended, as far as possible, to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general and scientific philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics. The theory of relativity enriched physics and astronomy during the 20th century. When first published, relativity superseded a 200-year-old theory of mechanics elucidated by Isaac Newton. It changed perceptions. For example, it overturned the concept of motion from Newton's day, into all motion is relative. Time was no longer uniform and absolute, as related to everyday experience. Furthermore, no longer could physics be understood as space by itself, and time by itself. Instead, an added dimension had to be taken into account with curved space-time. Time now depended on velocity, and contraction became a fundamental consequence at appropriate speeds.

COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS

The first aim of this course is therefore to bridge the gap between undergraduate courses in the physical sciences and the applications of the aquired knowledge to a given project, be it either a thesis work or an industrial project. We expect you to have some basic knowledge in the physical sciences, especially within mathematics and physics through e.g., sophomore courses in basic calculus, linear algebraand general physics. Furthermore, having taken an introductory course on programming is something we recommend.
