Einstein 1905: The Standard of GreatnessThis book celebrates Albert Einstein’s 1905. In six months Einstein wrote five papers that deeply influenced the course of twentiethcentury science. These papers from the hand of a thenunknown physicist make 1905 one of the most memorable years in the history of science and, without doubt, make the six months from March 17 to September 27...   Quantum Computer Science: An IntroductionIn the 1990's it was realized that quantum physics has some spectacular applications in computer science. This book is a concise introduction to quantum computation, developing the basic elements of this new branch of computational theory without assuming any background in physics. It begins with an introduction to the quantum theory from a...   

Relativistic Quantum Chemistry: The Fundamental Theory of Molecular ScienceA relativistic consistent quantumtheoretical description of electronic bound states in atoms was first introduced in atomic physics as early as the late 1920s and has been pushed forward since that time. It was believed, however, that effects stemming from Einstein’s theory of relativity were of little or even no importance to chemistry....   Quantum MechanicsThe principles of quantum mechanics were formulated by many people during a short period of time at the beginning of the twentieth century. Max Planck wrote down his formula for the spectrum of blackbody radiation and introduced the constant that now bears his name in 1900. By 1924, through the work of Einstein, Rutherford and Bohr, Schrodinger and...   

The Nothing That Is: A Natural History of ZeroA symbol for what is not there, an emptiness that increases any number it's added to, an inexhaustible and indispensable paradox. As we enter the year 2000, zero is once again making its presence felt. Nothing itself, it makes possible a myriad of calculations. Indeed, without zero mathematics as we know it would not exist. And without mathematics...   Theory of Relativity
THIRTYFIVE years ago this article on the theory of relativity, written by me at the rather young age of 21 years for the Mathematical Encyclopedia, was first published as a separate monograph together with a preface by Sommerfeld, who as the editor of this volume of the Encyclopedia was responsible for my authorship. It was the aim of the...   Gender Issues and Sexuality: Essential Primary Sources
Gender Issues and Sexuality: Essential Primary Sources provides insight into the personal, social, and political issues of gender and sexuality—issues that range from what many hold as intimate matters of personal belief to matters that stir, shake, and thus profoundly shape modern society.
The women’s rights and gay...
