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
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.
The brilliant offbeat guide to tackling Oxbridge's infamously challenging interview questions
The intriguing lives and key works of the ten physicists who most profoundly transformed our understanding of the physical world in which we live
* An engaging, accessible and fascinating look at science's 'best bits' by popular comedian and particle physicist Ben Miller
A unique textbook, aimed at undergraduate students, containing large numbers of spectra, problems and marginal notes, specifically chosen to highlight the points being discussed.
An introduction to the physics of amorphous solids and related disordered condensed matter systems. It explains important concepts from statistical mechanics such as percolation, random walks, fractals and spin glasses. It also includes material on topics in the field of disordered systems such as gels, driven systems, and growing length scales.
Renowned physicist and mathematician Freeman Dyson is famous for his work in quantum mechanics, nuclear weapons policy and bold visions for the future of humanity. This title comprises of the legendary lectures on quantum electrodynamics first given by Dyson at Cornell University in 1951.
Developed to provide a comprehensive guide, the Handbook of Medicinal Chemistry has been revised and brought up to date to cover the past, present and future of the entire drug development process.
Suitable for undergraduates in the physical and biological sciences, as well as graduates in engineering and materials science, this title deals with single-site heterogeneous catalysts (SSHCs) and presents both principles of design and applications, such as the benign synthesis of nylon 6 and vitamin B3.
An elegant and entertaining account explaining the strange history of the (non-existent) Planet Vulcan, which confounded the 19th century's brightest minds.
Suitable for those who are interested to know the optical constants of the elemental and compound semiconductors in the course of their work, this title presents data on the optical constants of various elemental and compound semiconductors.
This text contains detailed solutions to 483 questions/problems on atomic, molecular, nuclear and particle physics, as well as experimental methodology. The problems are appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduates, and blend understanding of physical principles with application.
Presents an exposition of quantum mechanics. This book shows that 'realism (the belief that the outside world exists from its own side' regardless of acts of consciousness) and locality (the belief that nothing moves faster than light) are invalid, and should be replaced by a paradigm according to which the universe is alive.
