#ad
GENERAL PRESS #ad - 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. 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, from a general and scientific philosophical point of view, as far as possible, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics. The theory of relativity enriched physics and astronomy during the 20th century.

Relativity: The Special and the General Theory #ad - Albert einstein is the unquestioned founder of modern physics. His theory of relativity is the most important scientific idea of the modern era.

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 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.

Many of my colleagues saw in this something bordering on a tragedy. 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, as well as an excerpt of the memorial address delivered by Max von Laue, this little book also includes Einstein’s famous tribute to Planck at his 60th birthday celebration, Planck's former student and later his colleague and friend.

The Origin and Development of the Quantum Theory: with "A Scientific Autobiography" #ad - These materials will further help us to understand what a quantum man Planck was and why he became a "reluctant" revolutionary. Book excerpt:my mind absorbed avidly, the first law I knew to possess absolute, universal validity, like a revelation, independently from all human agency: The principle of the conservation of energy.

But i feel differently about it. 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, which are carefully edited in this book, Planck told us how he discovered the quantum “after a few weeks of the most strenuous work” of his life, and what “an unexpected vista began to appear” after the darkness was lifted.

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.

The new york times   “a high priest of physics, one of a handful of theorists who may be on the verge of reading God’s mind.

Los angeles Times. Praise for stephen hawking   “Hawking can explain the complexities of cosmological physics with an engaging combination of clarity and wit. He believes that if we understood the challenges they pose to the very nature of space and time, we could unlock the secrets of the universe. Black holes are stranger than anything dreamed up by science-fiction writers, but they are firmly matters of science fact.

For decades, Stephen Hawking has been fascinated by black holes. In these conversational pieces, and theoretical answers to more specific questions, hawking’s sense of wonder is infectious as he holds forth on what we know about black holes, featuring whimsical and illuminating illustrations, such as: What would happen if you ever got sucked into one? Annotated and with an introduction by BBC News science editor David Shukman, what we still don’t know, Black Holes offers a candid peek into one of the great scientific mysteries of all time.

Black Holes Kindle Single #ad - It is said that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more true than in the case of black holes.

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, described an annual course about the sun, us one of the planets, under the fixed stars the planets were carried about the sun; that the earth, that the fixed stars stood immoveable in the highest parts of the world; that, in the earliest ages of philosophy, as the common fire which served to warm the whole, while by a diurnal motion it was in the mean time revolved about its own axis; and that the sun, was fixed in the centre of the universe.

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

THE ILLUSTRATED THEORY OF EVERYTHING: The Origin and Fate of the Universe

#ad
#ad
PHOENIX BOOKS, INC. #ad - A great popularizer of science as well as a brilliant scientist, Hawking believes that advances in theoretical science should be "understandable in broad principle by everyone, not just a few scientists. In this book, he offers, for all who would take it, a voyage of discovery about the cosmos and our place .

This book approaches that. Stephen w. Hawking is widely believed to be one of the world’s greatest minds: a brilliant theoretical physicist whose work helped to reconfigure models of the universe and to redefine what’s in it. It would be like hearing Christopher Columbus tell of his journeys to the New World.

THE ILLUSTRATED THEORY OF EVERYTHING: The Origin and Fate of the Universe #ad - These essays capture not only the brilliance of Hawking’s mind but his characteristic wit as well. Imagine sitting in a room listening to Hawking discuss these achievements and place them in historical context. In the theory of everything, hawking presents a series of seven lectures in which he lays out, perhaps more clearly and concisely than ever, the history of the universe as we know it.

The Harmonies of the World

Mariana de Lacerda Oliveira #ad - And today, we finally have heard the music of the spheres: data from outer system probes have been translated into acoustic form, and we can listen to strange clicks and moans from Jupiter's magnetosphere. Towards the end of harmonies kepler expressed a startling idea, --one which Giordiano Bruno had been persecuted for, two decades before--the plurality of inhabited worlds.

Kepler's speculations are long discredited. He muses on the diversity of life on earth, and how it was inconceivable that the other planets would be devoid of life, that God had "adorneded the other globes too with their fitting creatures". Johannes kepler published Harmonies of the World in 1619. This was the summation of his theories about celestial correspondences, and ties together the ratios of the planetary orbits, musical theory, and the Platonic solids.

The Harmonies of the World #ad - However, which sought systems of symbolic correspondences in the fabric of nature, this work stands as a bridge between the Hermetic philosophy of the Renaissance, and modern science.

Elements of Algebra

#ad
#ad - Several inline formulas were moved out-of-line to give the work more space. 6. Several errors in the formulas were discovered and corrected. 7. The word "formulae" was replace by "formulas". 8. This new edition contains euler's part i containing the analysis of Determinate Quantities and Part II Containing the Analysis of Indeterminate Quantities, Lagrange's Additions as well as all of the footnotes by Johann Bernoulli and others.

While much of the text remains the same as that edition, several changes were made to make it more accessible to the modern reader:1. Starting with basic mathematical concepts such as signs, methods of rendering certain formulas rational, infinite series, Euler then discusses how to solve equations of varying degrees, arithmetic and geometric ratios, powers and roots, fractions, and the calculation of interest, logarithms, and more.

Elements of Algebra #ad - The original notation for continued fractions has been replaced with the more modern notation. 3. 4. The overuse of the comma in several places was brought up to modern standards. It is my hope that by creating this new "modern" edition, a renewed interest will be generated for a work which certainly does not deserve to be forgotten, written by a brilliant mathematician considered "the master of us all".
