This book describes detection techniques used to search and analyse gravitational waves (GW). It covers the whole domain of GW detection, starting from the theory and ending with the experimental techniques (both present and future) used to detect them.The theoretical sections of the book address the theory of GW in the general relativity followed by the theory of GW detection. The different sources of GW are described as well as the methods used to... more...

Internationally renowned, award-winning theoretical physicist, New York Times bestselling author of A Universe from Nothing, and passionate advocate for reason, Lawrence Krauss tells the dramatic story of the discovery of the hidden world of reality—a grand poetic vision of nature—and how we find our place within it. In the beginning there was light. But more than this, there was gravity. After that, all hell broke loose… In A Universe from... more...

“A compelling appeal, at just the right time, for continuing to look up.”―Air & Space America’s space program is at a turning point. After decades of global primacy, NASA has ended the space-shuttle program, cutting off its access to space. No astronauts will be launched in an American craft, from American soil, until the 2020s, and NASA may soon find itself eclipsed by other countries’ space programs. With his... more...

*INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER* "Vivid . . . impressive. . . . Splendidly informative."—The New York Times "Suceeds spectacularly."—Science"A tour de force."—Salon Already internationally acclaimed for his elegant, lucid writing on the most challenging notions in modern physics, Sean Carroll is emerging as one of the greatest humanist thinkers of his generation as he brings his extraordinary intellect to bear not only on Higgs bosons and... more...

In Everything Forever Giorbran reveals timelessness in ways previously unimagined. He presents the first detailed map of our transitory time passing through a timeless realm, a realm that all the great physicists of the past century, such as Einstein, spoke of and strove to understand. Giorbran builds a spectacular vision by extending the ideas of David Bohm and Stephen Hawking, creating a visual model of the space of all possible states (soaps).... more...


Why would any educated scientist with a PhD advocate a literal interpretation of the six days of creation? Why, indeed, when only one in three Americans believes ?the Bible is the actual word of God and is to be taken literally, word for word? according to a recent Gallup poll. Science can neither prove nor disprove evolution any more than it can creation. Certainly there are no human eyewitness accounts of either. However, certain... more...

An examination of the precise code that connects ancient spirituality with modern science • Shows how the numerical patterns in ancient philosophies are evident in both the structure of the universe and the helical structure of DNA • Reveals that music theory comes from an intuitive understanding of the resonant harmony of the cosmos Many have observed the distinct numerical patterns embedded in ancient philosophies and religions from all over... more...

This classic book is essential reading for all those interested in the development of modern physics. Sir Arthur Eddington's account of the general theory of relativity, 'without,' as he says in his preface, 'introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics or philosophy', was first published in the exciting days of 1920 soon after the first objective tests of the theory had demonstrated its validity. The book was at once... more...

Starting with the idea of an event and finishing with a description of the standard big-bang model of the Universe, this textbook provides a clear, concise and up-to-date introduction to the theory of general relativity, suitable for final-year undergraduate mathematics or physics students. Throughout, the emphasis is on the geometric structure of spacetime, rather than the traditional coordinate-dependent approach. This allows the theory to be pared... more...

Join David J. Eicher in this fast-paced and entertaining journey through the history, present, and future of these important yet mysterious cosmic bodies. From ancient times, humans have been fascinated by "broom stars" and "blazing scimitars" lighting up the sky and moving against the fixed background of stars. The Great Comets of our time still receive in-depth attention - ISON, Hale-Bopp, Hyakutake, West, and others - while recent spacecraft... more...
