Towards the Edge of the Universe is the second edition of a successful textbook, previously published by Wiley-Praxis. It reviews the latest discoveries and ideas, discusses areas of controversy, and presents a variety of observational data, in a way suitable as an introduction to cosmology for university students studying the following courses: Astronomy, Astrophysics, Cosmology, Partical Physics, Theoretical Physics and Space Science. The author... more...

This book overviews the extensive literature on apparent cosmological and black hole horizons. In theoretical gravity, dynamical situations such as gravitational collapse, black hole evaporation, and black holes interacting with non-trivial environments, as well as the attempts to model gravitational waves occurring in highly dynamical astrophysical processes, require that the concept of event horizon be generalized. Inequivalent... 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...

Black holes are one of the most remarkable predictions of Einstein's general relativity. In recent years, ideas in brane-world cosmology, string theory and gauge/gravity duality have motivated studies of black holes in more than four dimensions, with surprising results. In higher dimensions, black holes exist with exotic shapes and unusual dynamics. Edited by leading expert Gary Horowitz, this exciting book is the first devoted to this new field. The... more...

An accessible but genuinely comprehensive illustrated handbook of every aspect of astronomy, featuring the latest discoveries and the most recently available images of the universe. Take a tour of the universe, from the 90-mile-wide impact craters on the moon to Jupiter's Great Red Spot--a 400 mph swirling storm that started before anyone on Earth was born. This stunningly illustrated handbook is split into eight sections that cover every aspect of... more...

Beginning with an overview of the theory of black holes by the editor, this book presents a collection of ten chapters by leading physicists dealing with the variety of quantum mechanical and quantum gravitational effects pertinent to black holes. The contributions address topics such as Hawking radiation, the thermodynamics of black holes, the information paradox and firewalls, Monsters, primordial black holes, self-gravitating Bose-Einstein... more...

In early April 1911 Albert Einstein arrived in Prague to become full professor of theoretical physics at the German part of Charles University. It was there, for the first time, that he concentrated primarily on the problem of gravitation. Before he left Prague in July 1912 he had submitted the paper “Relativität und Gravitation: Erwiderung auf eine Bemerkung von M. Abraham” in which he remarkably anticipated what a future theory of... more...

Addressing graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics and mathematics, this book presents a new formulation of the theory of gravity. In the new approach the gravitational field has the same ontology as the electromagnetic, strong, and weak fields. In other words it is a physical field living in Minkowski spacetime. Some necessary new mathematical concepts are introduced and carefully explained. Then they are used to describe the... more...

Scientific Creationism delivers a meticulously researched, scientific investigation of the most important aspects of the creation-evolution question. Dr. Henry Morris along with the Institute for Creation Science researchers and consultants allow science to speak for itself without referencing the Bible or other religious literature in this undeniable study of origins. Within their thorough exploration, you will find irrefutable... more...
