Epistemology and Probability: Bohr, Heisenberg, Schr?dinger, and the Nature of Quantum-Theoretical Thinking
Epistemology and Probability: Bohr, Heisenberg, Schr?dinger, and the Nature of Quantum-Theoretical Thinking

The book offers an exploration of the relationships between epistemology and probability in the work of Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schrödinger; in quantum mechanics; and in modern physics as a whole. It also considers the implications of these relationships and of quantum theory itself for our understanding of the nature of...

Petascale Computing: Algorithms and Applications (Chapman & Hall/Crc Computational Science Series)
Petascale Computing: Algorithms and Applications (Chapman & Hall/Crc Computational Science Series)
Although the highly anticipated petascale computers of the near future will perform at an order of magnitude faster than today’s quickest supercomputer, the scaling up of algorithms and applications for this class of computers remains a tough challenge. From scalable algorithm design for massive concurrency toperformance analyses and...
The Artful Universe Expanded
The Artful Universe Expanded
Our love of art, writes John Barrow, is the end product of millions of years of evolution. How we react to a beautiful painting or symphony draws upon instincts laid down long before humans existed. Now, in this enhanced edition of the highly popular The Artful Universe, Barrow further explores the close ties between our aesthetic appreciation and...
Quantum Cosmology and Baby Universes
Quantum Cosmology and Baby Universes
Quantum gravity is notoriously a subject where problems vastly outnumber results. This is no surprise at short distances, on the order of the Planck length, where most of us expect quantum fluctuations in the metric to cause space-time itself to lose its meaning and gravity to be subsumed (along with the other so-called fundamental interactions)...
The Cosmic Microwave Background
The Cosmic Microwave Background
The cosmic microwave background (CMB) is the radiation left over from the Big Bang. Recent analysis of the fluctuations in this radiation has given us valuable insights into our Universe and its parameters. Examining the theory of CMB and recent developments, this textbook starts with a brief introduction to modern cosmology and its main successes,...
The Casimir Effect
The Casimir Effect
"... the book is very comprehensive, clearly written and filled with wonderful physics." -- CERN Courier, Mar 2002

"Milton's attractively slim book will guide the serious beginner and its analytical rigor should also attract experienced theorists" -- Physics Today, Jan 2003

An Introduction to Modern Cosmology
An Introduction to Modern Cosmology
An Introduction to Modern Cosmology Second Edition is an accessible account of modern cosmological ideas.  The Big Bang Cosmology is explored, looking at its observational successes in explaining the expansion and age of the universe, the existence and properties of the cosmic microwave background, and the origin of the light elements...
Quantum Mechanics of Fundamental Systems: The Quest for Beauty and Simplicity: Claudio Bunster Festschrift
Quantum Mechanics of Fundamental Systems: The Quest for Beauty and Simplicity: Claudio Bunster Festschrift
This is a collection of contributed papers by former collaborators and colleagues of Claudio Bunster (formerly Teitelboim). The topics include General Relativity, Quantum Gravity, String Theory; from historical reviews to current research; from mathematical structures underlying the fundamental interactions, to cosmological scenarios describing the...
Relativity: Special, General, and Cosmological
Relativity: Special, General, and Cosmological

Relativistic cosmology has in recent years become one of the most exciting and active branches of current research. In conference after conference the view is expressed that cosmology today is where particle physics was forty years ago, with major discoveries just waiting to happen. Also gravitational wave detectors, presently under...

Analytic Hyperbolic Geometry And Albert Einstein's Special Theory Of Relativity
Analytic Hyperbolic Geometry And Albert Einstein's Special Theory Of Relativity
This book presents a powerful way to study Einstein's special theory of relativity and its underlying hyperbolic geometry in which analogies with classical results form the right tool. It introduces the notion of vectors into analytic hyperbolic geometry, where they are called gyrovectors.

Newtonian velocity addition is the common vector...

Measuring the Angular Momentum of Supermassive Black Holes (SpringerBriefs in Astronomy)
Measuring the Angular Momentum of Supermassive Black Holes (SpringerBriefs in Astronomy)

Measuring the spin distribution of supermassive black holes is of critical importance for understanding how these black holes and their host galaxies form and evolve over time, yet this type of study is only in its infancy.  This brief describes how astronomers measure spin in supermassive black holes using X-ray...

Framing the Jina: Narratives of Icons and Idols in Jain History
Framing the Jina: Narratives of Icons and Idols in Jain History

John Cort explores the narratives by which the Jains have explained the presence of icons of Jinas (their enlightened and liberated teachers) that are worshiped and venerated in the hundreds of thousands of Jain temples throughout India. Most of these narratives portray icons favorably, and so justify their existence; but there are also...
