This is a short book on basic cosmology designed for the reader with little or no prior knowledge of the subject. Starting with simple physics it moves on to discuss the universe, relativity, time, basic particle theory, quantum mechanics and the possibility of a multi-universe. The book employs simplifications of complex topics, and is quite concise. It is written in an informal style and uses simple analogies along with twelve diagrams to aid the reader's understanding. Some parts are noted as being more difficult to follow than others, and thus may be omitted or left for later reading. The possibility of a multi-universe is explored in the last chapter and is treated in a positive way, using simple ideas introduced in the previous chapters. The book is written by a physics lecturer with a strong interest in Cosmology.

A science writer explains the significance of Stephen Hawking's work--in terms all of us can understand. Stephen Hawking was one of the most important astrophysicists of the last fifty years. After the publication of A Brief History of Time, he became an international celebrity. Though the book sold in the millions, few readers really grasped the significance of his groundbreaking work. Now popular Austrian science blogger Florian Freistetter, himself an astronomer, makes Hawking's contributions accessible to everyday readers in this concise, very readable book. By focusing on the essentials, Freistetter deftly and entertainingly makes Hawking's complex theoretical accomplishments understandable. Avoiding technicalities and jargon, he elucidates the great scientist's fascinating work on black holes, gravitational waves, the big bang, and singularities. Concluding with an appreciation of Hawking as a science communicator and popularizer, Freistetter conveys the importance of Hawking's scientific research in terms that nonspecialists can follow.

Quantum Gravity In A Nutshell1

Author : Balungi Francis
ISBN : 1714269329
Genre : Mathematics
File Size : 65.35 MB
Format : PDF, Kindle
Download : 629
Read : 1273

This well researched and thought experiment book is a good introduction to quantum gravity and has a lot of interesting history about the development of the theory since 1899. It's an informal introduction to a very difficult and doubtfully intelligible theory doubted even by its most ingenious contributors. The reader should expect that he/she will have to concentrate hard on what Balungi says but the rewards are significant. He is a talented physicist and a good writer. If you read it carefully and stop to think about the message as it unfolds then you will get a worthwhile if imperfect picture of what the theory is saying and how it was invented, It's buried treasure and you will have to do some digging. It is a really serious attempt to do all that can be done in an informal style. Balungi explains and re-defines Einstein's theory of general relativity, quantum mechanics, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, elementary particles, gravity, and the nature of the mind. This wonderful and exciting book is optimal for physics graduate students and researchers. Not since Stephen W Hawking's celebrated best-seller Brief History of Time has physics been so vividly, intelligently and entertainingly revealed

An esteemed researcher and acclaimed popular author takes up the challenge of providing a clear, relatively brief, and fully up-to-date introduction to one of the most vital but notoriously difficult subjects in theoretical physics. A quantum field theory text for the twenty-first century, this book makes the essential tool of modern theoretical physics available to any student who has completed a course on quantum mechanics and is eager to go on. Quantum field theory was invented to deal simultaneously with special relativity and quantum mechanics, the two greatest discoveries of early twentieth-century physics, but it has become increasingly important to many areas of physics. These days, physicists turn to quantum field theory to describe a multitude of phenomena. Stressing critical ideas and insights, Zee uses numerous examples to lead students to a true conceptual understanding of quantum field theory - what it means and what it can do. He covers an unusually diverse range of topics, including various contemporary developments, while guiding readers through thoughtfully designed problems. In contrast to previous texts, Zee incorporates gravity from the outset and discusses the innovative use of quantum field theory in modern condensed matter theory. Without a solid understanding of quantum field theory, no student can claim to have mastered contemporary theoretical physics. Offering a remarkably accessible conceptual introduction, this text will be widely welcomed and used.

Fermi S Paradox Cosmology And Life

In a universe as large as this, it would be surprising if earth was the only inhabited planet. Everything we know about cosmology today, suggested that life should be common. Almost certainly some of that would be similar to ourselves, and would also probably be using radio technology in much the way that we do. We should be able to pick up these signals, with the powerful radio telescopes we have today, and the surprising thing is that after 50 years of continuous listening, we have not yet detected a single one. Fermis paradox relates to this finding, but in its original form, was posed as a question, as to why, in a universe such as this, we have no knowledge of the extraterrestrial life which should be common. Many answers have been proposed, none of them satisfactory, and this book looks at the changes which have taken place since Fermis day, both with respect to the origin and evolution of life, and the advancing trends in modern cosmology, to provide current information from which readers can form their own opinion. The author presents a personal view, which is hypothetical and speculative, but consistent with facts nonetheless.
