To Explain the World: The Discovery of Modern Science

A masterful remark at the historical past of technological know-how from the Greeks to trendy occasions, through Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg—a thought-provoking and significant e-book by means of essentially the most unique scientists and intellectuals of our time. during this wealthy, irreverent, and compelling heritage, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg takes us throughout centuries from old Miletus to medieval Baghdad and Oxford, from Plato’s Academy and the Museum of Alexandria to the cathedral university of Chartres and the Royal Society of London.

Game Physics

Create bodily practical 3D pics environments with this creation to the guidelines and strategies in the back of the method. writer David H. Eberly comprises simulations to introduce the most important difficulties concerned after which steadily unearths the mathematical and actual innovations had to resolve them. He then describes all of the algorithmic foundations and makes use of code examples and dealing resource code to teach how they're carried out, culminating in a wide number of actual simulations.

Quantum Theory of Solids (Oxford Classic Texts in the Physical Sciences)

This publication develops the topic from the elemental ideas of quantum mechanics. The emphasis is on a unmarried assertion of the guidelines underlying a number of the approximations that experience for use and care is taken to split sound arguments from conjecture. This publication is written for the scholar of theoretical physics who desires to paintings within the box of solids and for the experimenter with an information of quantum concept who's now not content material to take different people's arguments with no consideration.

Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness

In attempting to comprehend the atom, physicists equipped quantum mechanics, the main winning concept in technology and the foundation of one-third of our economic climate. they discovered, to their embarrassment, that with their idea, physics encounters recognition. Authors Bruce Rosenblum and Fred Kuttner clarify all this in non-technical phrases with aid from a few fanciful tales and anecdotes in regards to the theory's builders.
