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.

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.

BoseEinstein Condensation in Dilute Gases

The study of BoseEinstein condensation in dilute gases draws on many different subfields of physics. Atomic physics provides the basic methods for creating and manipulating these systems, and the physical data required to characterize them. Because interactions between atoms play a key role in the behaviour of ultracold atomic clouds, concepts and methods from condensed matter physics are used extensively. Investigations of spatial and temporal correlations of particles provide links to quantum optics, where related studies have been made for photons. Trapped atomic clouds have some similarities to atomic nuclei, and insights from nuclear physics have been helpful in understanding their properties.

Astrophysics is Easy! An Introduction for the Amateur Astronomer

Astrophysics is a subject that is often - with some justification - regarded as extremely difficult, requiring at least degree-level mathematics as a prerequisite to its understanding. Consequently, many amateur astronomers just don't bother, and miss out on the fascinating fundamentals of the subject, and often on an understanding of exactly what they are observing. Mike Inglis' quantitative approach to astrophysics cuts through all the incomprehensible mathematics, and explains all aspects of astrophysics in simple terms.

Energy of Matter

Energy and its relationship to matter started with big banga widely accepted theory in contemporary cosmology, which concerns the origin and evolution of the universe. According to this theory, an incredibly powerful explosion about 13.7 billion years ago started the present universe.Prior to this explosion, matter, energy, space, and time did not exist.All of these physical phenomena emerged from an unimaginably small, infinitely dense object that scientists call the initial singularity. Immediately after the big bang event, the intensely hot universe, which consisted of pure energy, began to expand and cool.As the universe cooled, matter began to form, initially as primeval quark-gluon plasma.Energy of Matter presents the most important intellectual achievements and technical developments that led people to use matter's energy content more efficiently. Supported by full-color illustrations and interesting sidebars, this new book describes the transformation of matter into energy and vice versa and how it continues in the present.

The Laws of Thermodynamics

The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the sudden expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal--everything is moved or restrained by four simple laws. Written by Peter Atkins, one of the world's leading authorities on thermodynamics, this powerful and compact introduction explains what these four laws are and how they work, using accessible language and virtually no mathematics. Guiding the reader a step at a time, Atkins begins with Zeroth (so named because the first two laws were well established before scientists realized that a third law, relating to temperature, should precede them--hence the jocular name zeroth), and proceeds through the First, Second, and Third Laws, offering a clear account of concepts such as the availability of work and the conservation of energy. Atkins ranges from the fascinating theory of entropy (revealing how its unstoppable rise constitutes the engine of the universe), through the concept of free energy, and to the brink, and then beyond the brink, of absolute zero.

Thermal Properties and Temperature-Related Behavior of Rock/Fluid Systems

This book brings together for the first time the results of research on the thermal properties and temperature-related behavior of rocks with their contained fluids, under subsurface environmental conditions. These data are of increasing importance with increased application of underground processes involving high temperature and, in some cases, low temperature environments. Some of the important processes are described in which thermal data are needed. Chapters deal with thermal properties of rocks, including heat capacities, thermal conductivities and thermal diffusivities under conditions simulating subsurface environments. Discussion about the difficulty in measuring thermal properties of rock/fluid systems is included along with newly-developed models for predicting thermal properties from more-easily measured properties. The effects of thermal reactions in rocks, differential thermal expansion, and thermal alterations are discussed in separate chapters. The effects of temperature on rock properties, as distinct from the irreversible effects of heating, are reviewed. Lastly the book deals with wellbore applications of thermal and high-temperature behavior of rocks and methods of deducing thermal properties from geophysical logs run in boreholes. Appendices include thermal units conversion factors and thermal properties of some typical reservoir rocks and fluids.
