Cosmology in a Nutshell by Ken Johnson Summary

This is a short book on basic cosmology designed for the reader with little or no prior knowledge of the subject. Starting with simple physics it moves on to discuss the universe, relativity, time, basic particle theory, quantum mechanics and the possibility of a multi-universe. The book employs simplifications of complex topics, and is quite concise. It is written in an informal style and uses simple analogies along with twelve diagrams to aid the reader's understanding. Some parts are noted as being more difficult to follow than others, and thus may be omitted or left for later reading. The possibility of a multi-universe is explored in the last chapter and is treated in a positive way, using simple ideas introduced in the previous chapters. The book is written by a physics lecturer with a strong interest in Cosmology.

Stephen Hawking by Florian Freistetter Summary

A science writer explains the significance of Stephen Hawking's work--in terms all of us can understand. Stephen Hawking was one of the most important astrophysicists of the last fifty years. After the publication of A Brief History of Time, he became an international celebrity. Though the book sold in the millions, few readers really grasped the significance of his groundbreaking work. Now popular Austrian science blogger Florian Freistetter, himself an astronomer, makes Hawking's contributions accessible to everyday readers in this concise, very readable book. By focusing on the essentials, Freistetter deftly and entertainingly makes Hawking's complex theoretical accomplishments understandable. Avoiding technicalities and jargon, he elucidates the great scientist's fascinating work on black holes, gravitational waves, the big bang, and singularities. Concluding with an appreciation of Hawking as a science communicator and popularizer, Freistetter conveys the importance of Hawking's scientific research in terms that nonspecialists can follow.

Quantum Gravity in a Nutshell1 by Balungi Francis Summary

This well researched and thought experiment book is a good introduction to quantum gravity and has a lot of interesting history about the development of the theory since 1899. It's an informal introduction to a very difficult and doubtfully intelligible theory doubted even by its most ingenious contributors. The reader should expect that he/she will have to concentrate hard on what Balungi says but the rewards are significant. He is a talented physicist and a good writer. If you read it carefully and stop to think about the message as it unfolds then you will get a worthwhile if imperfect picture of what the theory is saying and how it was invented, It's buried treasure and you will have to do some digging. It is a really serious attempt to do all that can be done in an informal style. Balungi explains and re-defines 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. This wonderful and exciting book is optimal for physics graduate students and researchers. Not since Stephen W Hawking's celebrated best-seller Brief History of Time has physics been so vividly, intelligently and entertainingly revealed

Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell by A. Zee Summary

An esteemed researcher and acclaimed popular author takes up the challenge of providing a clear, relatively brief, and fully up-to-date introduction to one of the most vital but notoriously difficult subjects in theoretical physics. A quantum field theory text for the twenty-first century, this book makes the essential tool of modern theoretical physics available to any student who has completed a course on quantum mechanics and is eager to go on. Quantum field theory was invented to deal simultaneously with special relativity and quantum mechanics, the two greatest discoveries of early twentieth-century physics, but it has become increasingly important to many areas of physics. These days, physicists turn to quantum field theory to describe a multitude of phenomena. Stressing critical ideas and insights, Zee uses numerous examples to lead students to a true conceptual understanding of quantum field theory - what it means and what it can do. He covers an unusually diverse range of topics, including various contemporary developments, while guiding readers through thoughtfully designed problems. In contrast to previous texts, Zee incorporates gravity from the outset and discusses the innovative use of quantum field theory in modern condensed matter theory. Without a solid understanding of quantum field theory, no student can claim to have mastered contemporary theoretical physics. Offering a remarkably accessible conceptual introduction, this text will be widely welcomed and used.

L’Ordre du temps by Carlo Rovelli Summary

Dans ses Sept brèves leçons de physique, Carlo Rovelli confiait qu’une question avait guidé sa vie de chercheur : la nature du temps. Se hissant sur les épaules d’Isaac Newton, d’Albert Einstein, de Stephen Hawking et de bien d’autres, il nous livre enfin ses découvertes dans ce livre majeur. Le temps est au cœur d’un étrange mystère. Tel un flocon de neige qui fond lorsqu’on s’en saisit, il s’est progressivement délité sous les assauts de la science : on sait dorénavant que le temps s’écoule plus lentement en plaine qu’en altitude ; qu’à l’échelle des étoiles et des planètes, il varie d’un point à l’autre, tandis qu’il ne « passe » pas au niveau microscopique. Que reste-t-il de tangible dans ces décombres ? Et comment construire une théorie du temps qui colle à notre perception, mais aussi à l’analyse des philosophes et aux fulgurances des poètes ? Voilà le défi brillamment relevé par Carlo Rovelli au fil des pages. Émerge alors un paysage d’une beauté inouïe où, pour la première fois, le temps retrouvé surgit de façon naturelle...

Stephen Hawking: a Biography by Dave Andrew Summary

Stephen Hawking is voted as one of the greatest Briton because of the achievements he was able to attain. He works mostly in Science and Physics, and he proved a lot of his theories, and are now widely accepted. Some of which are: 1. Contributed to the Cosmic Inflation Theory where he said that from his observation on Big Bang Theory, the universe expanded exponentially before settling down to slower expansion. 2. His proposal about the "top-down cosmology" theory with Thomas Hertog. It proposed that the Universe is what have we known now, it consisted of a superposition of many possible initial conditions. We don't know the initial conditions at the beginning of the universe, we can't have a bottom-up, only top-down cosmetology. 3. His famous works are about Black Holes, on trial confirming the Big Bang, and Light Cones. He wrote all about them on his Best Selling Book 'A Brief History of Time'. It helps introduce Physics to a regular reader as he wrote it not from a technical point of view. It became a hit and it sold more than 20 million copies. 4. He Published more books: After A Brief History of Time, several other works by Hawking were published which went on to be quite popular including Black Holes and Baby Universes and Other Essays, The Universe in a Nutshell, On The Shoulders of Giants, and God Created the Integers: The Mathematical Breakthroughs That Changed History. He also co-authored a series of children fiction novels with his daughter Lucy Hawking. 5. He found one of the most important breakthroughs in Theoretical Physics, and it was named after him, the Hawking Radiation. It proved that black holes emit radiation, which exhausts their energy then evaporate. This book is a well-researched Biography of Stephen Hawking's life. From his infanthood, to his illness (ALS), to his life adaptation 'The Theory of Everything', up until his unforgettable death.

Le roman du Big Bang by Simon Singh Summary

Auteur des best-sellers Le dernier théorème de Fermat et Histoire des codes secrets, Simon Singh retrace ici la fabuleuse histoire de la théorie du Big Bang. Albert Einstein a dit un jour : « La chose la plus incompréhensible à propos de l’Univers est qu’il soit compréhensible ». Simon Singh estime que les génies comme Einstein ne sont pas les seuls humains à pouvoir accéder aux lois physiques régissant l’Univers. Nous pouvons tous les comprendre. En expliquant ce qu’est véritablement la théorie du Big Bang, le livre tente de montrer pourquoi il s’agit, aux yeux des cosmologistes d’une description exacte et pertinente des origines de l’Univers. Avec un sens du récit digne d’un roman, il fait également revivre pour nous les destinées de ces savants qui, génération après génération, ont défié toutes les résistances pour comprendre la création, et combattu l’idée – défendue par l’establishment scientifique – d’un cosmos éternel et immuable. Connu pour rendre simples et évidentes les questions les plus ardues, Simon Singh est le guide parfait de ce voyage. Tout le monde a entendu parler de la théorie du Big Bang, mais combien d’entre nous peuvent prétendre la comprendre ? Avec la clarté qui caractérise tous ces ouvrages, Simon Singh a écrit l’histoire de la plus importante théorie scientifique jamais formulée.

Hawking on the Big Bang and Black Holes by Stephen W. Hawking Summary

Stephen Hawking, the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, has made important theoretical contributions to gravitational theory and has played a major role in the development of cosmology and black hole physics. Hawking's early work, partly in collaboration with Roger Penrose, showed the significance of spacetime singularities for the big bang and black holes. His later work has been concerned with a deeper understanding of these two issues. The work required extensive use of the two great intellectual achievements of the first half of the Twentieth Century: general relativity and quantum mechanics; and these are reflected in the reprinted articles. Hawking's key contributions on black hole radiation and the no-boundary condition on the origin of the universe are included. The present compilation of Stephen Hawking's most important work also includes an introduction by him, which guides the reader though the major highlights of the volume. This volume is thus an essentialitem in any library and will be an important reference source for those interested in theoretical physics and applied mathematics. It is an excellent thing to have so many of Professor Hawking's most important contributions to the theory of black holes and space-time singularities all collected together in one handy volume. I am very glad to have them". Roger Penrose (Oxford) "This was an excellent idea to put the best papers by Stephen Hawking together. Even his papers written many years ago remain extremely useful for those who study classical and quantum gravity. By watching the evolution of his ideas one can get a very clear picture of the development of quantum cosmology during thelast quarter of this century". Andrei Linde (Stanford) "This review could have been quite short: 'The book contains a selection of 21 of Stephen Hawking's most significant papers with an overview written by the author'. This w
