To Explain the World: The Discovery of Modern Science

A masterful statement at the historical past of technological know-how from the Greeks to fashionable occasions, through Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg—a thought-provoking and significant publication by way of probably the most unusual scientists and intellectuals of our time. during this wealthy, irreverent, and compelling background, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg takes us throughout centuries from historical Miletus to medieval Baghdad and Oxford, from Plato’s Academy and the Museum of Alexandria to the cathedral institution of Chartres and the Royal Society of London.

Game Physics

Create bodily lifelike 3D photos environments with this advent to the information and methods at the back of the method. writer David H. Eberly contains simulations to introduce the main difficulties concerned after which steadily finds the mathematical and actual recommendations 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 applied, culminating in a wide number of actual simulations.

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

This booklet develops the topic from the fundamental ideas of quantum mechanics. The emphasis is on a unmarried assertion of the tips underlying some 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 without any consideration.

Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness

In attempting to comprehend the atom, physicists equipped quantum mechanics, the main profitable thought in technology and the root of one-third of our economic system. 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 support from a few fanciful tales and anecdotes in regards to the theory's builders.
