Heavy WIMP Effective Theory
商品説明：This book is about dark matter’s particle nature and the implications of a new symmetry that appears when a hypothetical dark matter particle is heavy compared to known elementary particles. Dark matter exists and composes about 85% of the matter in the universe, but it cannot be explained in terms of the known elementary particles. Discovering dark matter's particle nature is one of the most pres...

Secular Evolution of Self-Gravitating Systems Over Cosmic Age
商品説明：Tackling galactic evolution in a truly novel way, this outstanding thesis statistically explores the long-term evolution of galaxies, using recent theoretical breakthroughs that explicitly account for their self-gravity. While treating processes statistically, the astrophysical differences on each scale are also captured. As the archetype of self-amplified diffusion, the implications of the thesis...
4 Leonard Susskind/Andre Cabannes
商品説明：The latest volume in the New York Times bestselling physics series explains Einstein's masterpiece: the general theory of relativity He taught us classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, and special relativity. Now, physicist Leonard Susskind, assisted by a new collaborator, André Cabannes, returns to tackle Einstein's general theory of relativity. Starting from the equivalence principle and coveri...
Einstein Equations: Physical and Mathematical Aspects of General Relativity

Geometrie der Raumzeit
商品説明：Die Relativitätstheorie ist in ihren Kernaussagen nicht mehr umstritten, gilt aber noch immer als kompliziert und nur schwer verstehbar. Das liegt unter anderem an dem aufwendigen mathematischen Apparat, der schon zur Formulierung ihrer Ergebnisse und erst recht zum Nachvollziehen der Argumentation notwendig ist. In diesem Lehrbuch werden die mathematischen Grundlagen der Relativitätstheorie syste...

Speed of Light Increasing 3 Meters per Second Each Year
商品説明：Based on the work of NASA scientist, Dr Daniel Gezari, we can conclude that the speed of light, c, is increasing approximately three meters per second each year. See his publication, "Lunar Laser Ranging Test on the Invariance of c," available at arxiv dot org. This amount is a small, yet significant change because it alters our ideas about relativity and Einstein's theory. If the speed of light i...

The Landscape of Relativistic Stellar Explosions
商品説明：This thesis reports the discovery of relativistic stellar explosions outside of the gamma ray band, using optical time domain surveys. It is well known that some massive stars end their lives with the formation of a compact object (a neutron star or black hole) that launches a relativistic jet detectable from earth as a burst of gamma rays. It has long been suspected, however, that gamma ray burst...

The Pillars of Creation
商品説明：This book explores the mechanics of star formation, the process by which matter pulls together and creates new structures. Written for science enthusiasts, the author presents an accessible explanation of how stars are born from the interstellar medium and giant molecular clouds. Stars produce the chemicals that lead to life, and it is they that have enabled the conditions for planets to form and ...

Geocentricity: The Debates 2
商品説明：Geocentrism: The belief that Earth is literally motionless at the center of a universe which revolves around it. Believe it or not, in this day and age, there are still people who hold such a belief. But is there any scientific evidence to support this belief, or are these people just a bunch of kooks? This book, the second in the series, consists of a series of debates on this issue. 。

Albert Einstein's Theory Of Relativity Explained Simply
商品説明：The Theory of Relativity is based on previously known scientific studies plus insights penned by Albert Einstein. He was one of the most advanced scientific minds of his day, and he made many contributions to physical science study. His work has provided much of the basis for those working with physics in particular. It can be divided in general and special categories. The theory influences how hu...
14 Gavin Bascom
On the Inside of a Marble
商品説明：Keeping in mind that we can only see the universe from the comfort of our home galaxy, Bascom begins his text by meticulously laying the necessary groundwork to understand the Big Bang’s mathematics without using any equations. He then paints a freeze-frame picture of our universe as if we had taken a three-dimensional picture with a giant camera. Within this picture, he traces forces beginning wi...
15 Jeroen van van Dongen
商品説明：Why did Einstein tirelessly study unified field theory for more than thirty years? In this book, the author argues that Einstein believed he could find a unified theory of all of nature's forces by repeating the methods he thought he had used when he formulated general relativity. The book discusses Einstein's route to the general theory of relativity, focusing on the philosophical lessons that he...

Alla velocità della luce
商品説明："Che cosa succede dopo questa vita? Cos’è la morte? È la fine di tutto? O l’inizio di una vita differente? E se così fosse cosa succede al momento del trapasso?" Sono millenni che l’uomo si interroga e prova a rispondere a domande come queste. Nonostante siano stati pubblicati moltissimi testi sull’argomento, in questo libro si possono trovare risposte nuove e originali che arrivano a scandagliare...

The Discovery of Dynamics
商品説明：Ever since Newton created dynamics, there has been controversy about its foundations. Are space and time absolute? Do they form a rigid but invisible framework and container of the universe? Or are space, time, and motion relative? If so, does Newton's 'framework' arise through the influence of the universe at large, as Ernst Mach suggested? Einstein's aim when creating his general theory of relat...
