Presents what you need to know about modern physics, the universe and our place in the world in seven lessons. In this introduction to modern physics, the author explains Einstein's theory of general relativity, quantum mechanics, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, elementary particles, gravity, and the nature of the mind.
New Scientist's brilliant million-selling Christmas book comes of age, exploring everything from the science of bubbles to whether cats are better than dogs
Spanning the globe and several centuries, this is the story of the quest to decipher the master-code that makes and defines humans, that governs our form and function. It is also an intimate history of the author's own family and its recurring pattern of mental illness, reminding us that genetics is vitally relevant to everyday lives.
The brilliant offbeat guide to tackling Oxbridge's infamously challenging interview questions
Covering all the basics including fractions, equations, primes, squares and square roots, geometry and fractals, Dr Richard Elwes will lead you gently towards a greater understanding of this fascinating subject. Even apparently daunting concepts are explained simply, with the assistance of useful diagrams, and with a refreshing lack of jargon.
* An engaging, accessible and fascinating look at science's 'best bits' by popular comedian and particle physicist Ben Miller
The intriguing lives and key works of the ten physicists who most profoundly transformed our understanding of the physical world in which we live
The material for these volumes has been selected from the past twenty years' examination questions for graduate students at University of California at Berkeley, Columbia University, the University of Chicago, MIT, State University of New York at Buffalo, Princeton University and University of Wisconsin.
Suitable for a survey course in physics taught without mathematics, this title takes into account the social impact and influences from the arts and society. It combines physics, literature, history and philosophy from the dawn of human life to the 21st century. It is also of interest to the general readers.
This is a wide scope and in-depth coverage of the state of the art and future directions in drug discovery for major psychiatric disorders.
First published in English in 1959, Karl Popper's "The Logic of Scientific Discovery" revolutionized contemporary thinking about science and knowledge and is one of the most widely read books about science written in the 20th century.
Offers a perspective of the understandings of the basic structures of matter from atoms, nucleus to leptons, quarks, and gluons along with the essential introductory quantum mechanics and special relativity. This book retrospects the historical development and examines the challenging directions of nuclear and particle physics.
Combines an analytic overview of conformational concepts and systemized practical instructions on how to carry out conformational studies in an organic laboratory equipped with high-performance PCs. This book describes conformational studies as a readily available and powerful instrument for synthetic chemists.
Features a collection of the Nobel lectures delivered by the prizewinners, together with their biographies and the presentation speeches for the period 2001-2005. This book offers inspiring lectures by outstanding physicists and is intended for students, teachers, and professors of physics as well as of those in related fields.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), located at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland, will be the world's largest and highest energy and highest intensity particle accelerator. This book offers several perspectives on the hoped - for discoveries from the LHC. It provides an overview on the techniques that may be crucial for finding new physics at the LHC.
This book describes in mathematical terms the extraction of useful information from ESR spectra
