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, via Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg—a thought-provoking and critical e-book through some of the most special scientists and intellectuals of our time. during this wealthy, irreverent, and compelling background, 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.

Create bodily life like 3D snap shots environments with this creation to the information and methods at the back of the method. writer David H. Eberly contains simulations to introduce the major difficulties concerned after which steadily unearths the mathematical and actual recommendations had to clear up them. He then describes the entire 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 booklet develops the topic from the fundamental rules of quantum mechanics. The emphasis is on a unmarried assertion of the information underlying a few of the approximations that experience for use and care is taken to split sound arguments from conjecture. This ebook is written for the coed of theoretical physics who desires to paintings within the box of solids and for the experimenter with an information of quantum thought 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 outfitted quantum mechanics, the main winning thought in technology and the root of one-third of our financial system. they discovered, to their embarrassment, that with their concept, physics encounters attention. 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.
