This book identifies the organizing concepts of physical and biological phenomena by an analysis of the foundations of mathematics and physics. Our aim is to propose a dialog between different conceptual universes and thus to provide a unification of phenomena. The role of 'order" and symmetries in the foundations of mathematics is linked to the main invariants and principles, among them the geodesic principle (a consequence of symmetries), which... more...

The fourth edition of this successful textbook presents a comprehensive introduction to statistical and numerical methods for the evaluation of empirical and experimental data. Equal weight is given to statistical theory and practical problems. The concise mathematical treatment of the subject matter is illustrated by many examples and for the present edition a library of Java programs has been developed. It comprises methods of... more...

In The Age of Entanglement, Louisa Gilder brings to life one of the pivotal debates in twentieth century physics. In 1935, Albert Einstein famously showed that, according to the quantum theory, separated particles could act as if intimately connected–a phenomenon which he derisively described as “spooky action at a distance.” In that same year, Erwin Schrödinger christened this correlation “entanglement.” Yet its existence was mostly... more...

In the early 21st century, the advances of science, followed by technology, have been very impressive and opened up hither to unthought-of prospects in every domain.Scientific "Previsionists" believe it will lay the foundation for deep changes in the human being. This is in no way a matter of science fiction but rather rational and foreseeable extrapolations of many recent results in various scientific fields. Will Man become a mutating GMO, a humanoid... more...

This book reviews the principle and rationale for using artificial gravity during space missions, and describes the current options proposed, including a short-radius centrifuge contained within a spacecraft. Experts provide recommendations on the research needed to assess whether or not short-radius centrifuge workouts can help limit deconditioning of physiological systems. Many detailed illustrations are included.



Passive Pulse Generators are circuits used to generate very high power electrical pulses. Such pulses find application in a wide range of disciplines, including plasma generation, gas laser physics and radar. * Includes two introductory chapters on techniques used to analyse passive pulse generators * Includes worked examples A valuable reference resource for specialist undergraduates, post graduate students and researchers active in the field og... more...

The book presents examples of important techniques and theorems for Groups, Lie groups and Lie algebras. This allows the reader to gain understandings and insights through practice. Applications of these topics in physics and engineering are also provided. The book is self-contained. Each chapter gives an introduction to the topic.

This volume is the second edition of the highly successful Fractals Everywhere. The Focus of this text is how fractal geometry can be used to model real objects in the physical world. This edition of Fractals Everywhere is the most up-to-date fractal textbook available today.Fractals Everywhere may be supplemented by Michael F. Barnsley's Desktop Fractal Design System (version 2.0) with IBM for Macintosh software. The Desktop Fractal Design System... more...

For more than half a century, physicists and astronomers engaged in heated dispute over the possibility of black holes in the universe. The weirdly alien notion of a space-time abyss from which nothing escapes—not even light—seemed to confound all logic. This engrossing book tells the story of the fierce black hole debates and the contributions of Einstein and Hawking and other leading thinkers who completely altered our view of the... more...
