GENERAL PRESS #ad - Unsurpassed by any subsequent books on relativity, this remains the most popular and useful exposition of Einstein’s immense contribution to human knowledge. In this work einstein intended, to give an exact insight into the theory of relativity to those readers who, are interested in the theory, as far as possible, from a general and scientific philosophical point of view, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics.

The theory of relativity enriched physics and astronomy during the 20th century. Albert einstein is the unquestioned founder of modern physics. His theory of relativity is the most important scientific idea of the modern era. In this book einstein explains, using the minimum of mathematical terms, the basic ideas and principles of the theory which has shaped the world we live in today.

The Origin and Development of the Quantum Theory: with "A Scientific Autobiography"

#ad
#ad
Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing #ad - Quantum physics originated from Max Planck’s great discovery of the quantum of energy in 1900 Exactly how was the quantum revolution ignited by planck? were there some devious roads he walked during his discovery? In his fascinating Nobel Lecture and Scientific Autobiography, Planck told us how he discovered the quantum “after a few weeks of the most strenuous work” of his life, which are carefully edited in this book, and what “an unexpected vista began to appear” after the darkness was lifted.

. In particular, he vividly recollected the wrong paths that he followed during his discovery, which may be the most intriguing part of his quantum story for general readers. Besides, this little book also includes einstein’s famous tribute to Planck at his 60th birthday celebration, as well as an excerpt of the memorial address delivered by Max von Laue, Planck's former student and later his colleague and friend.

The Origin and Development of the Quantum Theory: with "A Scientific Autobiography" #ad - None of my professors at the University had any understanding for its contents, as I learned for a fact in my conversations with them. My futile attempts to fit the elementary quantum of action somehow into the classical theory continued for a number of years, and they cost me a great deal of effort. But i feel differently about it.

I shall never forget the graphic story Müller told us, at his raconteur's best, of the bricklayer lifting with great effort a heavy block of stone to the roof of a house. For the thorough enlightenment I thus received was all the more valuable. A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.

The Nature of Space and Time Isaac Newton Institute Series of Lectures

#ad
#ad
Princeton University Press #ad - Hawking thinks otherwise, and argues that general relativity simply cannot account for how the universe began. Penrose, like einstein, refuses to believe that quantum mechanics is a final theory. Penrose, playing the realist to Hawking's positivist, thinks that the universe is unbounded and will expand forever.

With the final debate, the reader will come to realize how much Hawking and Penrose diverge in their opinions of the ultimate quest to combine quantum mechanics and relativity, and how differently they have tried to comprehend the incomprehensible. Here they explain their positions in a work based on six lectures with a final debate, all originally presented at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge.

The universe can be understood, in terms of the geometry of light cones, the compression and distortion of spacetime, he argues, and by the use of twistor theory. Only a quantum theory of gravity, coupled with the no-boundary hypothesis, can ever hope to explain adequately what little we can observe about our universe.

Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. How could quantum gravity, be constructed? why does our patch of the universe look just as einstein predicted, with no hint of quantum effects in sight? What strange quantum processes can cause black holes to evaporate, a theory that could explain the earlier moments of the big bang and the physics of the enigmatic objects known as black holes, not backward? In this book, and what happens to all the information that they swallow? Why does time go forward, the two opponents touch on all these questions.

The Nature of Space and Time Isaac Newton Institute Series of Lectures #ad - But was he right? can the quantum theory of fields and einstein's general theory of relativity, be united in a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined? On this issue, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, two of the world's most famous physicists--Stephen Hawking A Brief History of Time and Roger Penrose The Emperor's New Mind and Shadows of the Mind--disagree.

Sir isaac newton 1642–1727 was an english physicist and mathematician who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution. This great work supplied the momentum for the Scientific Revolution and dominated physics for over 200 years.

It was the ancient opinion of not a few, as the common fire which served to warm the whole, described an annual course about the sun, while by a diurnal motion it was in the mean time revolved about its own axis; and that the sun, under the fixed stars the planets were carried about the sun; that the earth, us one of the planets, in the earliest ages of philosophy, that the fixed stars stood immoveable in the highest parts of the world; that, was fixed in the centre of the universe.

The System of the World #ad - This was the philosophy taught of old by philolaus, plato in his riper years, as a symbol of the figure of the world with the sun in the centre, and the whole sect of the Pythagoreans; and this was the judgment of Anaximander, who, Aristarchus of Samos, of a round form, more ancient than any of them; and of that wise king of the Romans, Numa Pompilius, erected a temple in honour of Vesta, and ordained perpetual fire to be kept in the middle of it.
