An introduction to black holes, information and the string theory revolution : the holographic universe by Leonard Susskind( )

44 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last decade the physics of black holes has been revolutionized by developments that grew out of Jacob Bekenstein's realization that black holes have entropy. This revolution has culminated in a remarkable principle called "the holographic principle," which is now a major focus of attention in gravitational research, quantum field theory and elementary particle physics. Leonard Susskind, one of the co-inventors of the holographic principle as well as one of the founders of string theory, develops and explains these concepts."--Jacket
The black hole war : my battle with Stephen Hawking to make the world safe for quantum mechanics by Leonard Susskind( Book )

37 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A mind-bending book about modern physics, quantum mechanics, the fate of stars and the deep mysteries of black holes. What happens when something is sucked into a black hole? Does it disappear? Three decades ago, a young physicist named Stephen Hawking claimed it did--and in doing so put at risk everything we know about physics and the fundamental laws of the universe. Most scientists didn't recognize the import of Hawking's claims, but Leonard Susskind and Gerard t'Hooft realized the threat, and responded with a counterattack that changed the course of physics. This is the story of their united effort to reconcile Hawking's revolutionary theories with their own sense of reality--effort that would eventually result in Hawking admitting he was wrong, paying up, and Susskind and t'Hooft realizing that our world is a hologram projected from the outer boundaries of space.--From publisher description

The Cosmic landscape : string theory and the illusion of intelligent design by Leonard Susskind( Book )

31 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beginning of the 21st century is a watershed in modern science, a time that will forever change our understanding of the universe, Susskind contends. Several decades ago, he introduced the revolutionary concept of string theory to the world of physical science. In doing so, he inspired a generation of physicists who believed that the theory would uniquely predict the properties of our universe. Now, in his first book, Susskind argues that the very idea of such an "elegant theory" no longer suits our understanding of the universe, and that our narrow 20th-century view of a unique universe will have to give way to the much broader concept of a gigantic cosmic landscape--a megaverse, pregnant with new possibilities.--From publisher description
Special relativity and classical field theory : the theoretical minimum by Leonard Susskind( Book )

25 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and Italian and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Physicist Leonard Susskind and data engineer Art Friedman are back. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity and Maxwell's classical field theory. Using their typical brand of real math, enlightening drawings, and humor, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and electromagnetism. It's a must-read for both devotees of the series and any armchair physicist who wants to improve their knowledge of physics' deepest truths."--Amazon.com

Three lectures on complexity and black holes by Leonard Susskind( )

7 editions published in 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These three lectures cover a certain aspect of complexity and black holes, namely the relation to the second law of thermodynamics. The first lecture describes the meaning of quantum complexity, the analogy between entropy and complexity, and the second law of complexity. Lecture two reviews the connection between the second law of complexity and the interior of black holes. Prof. L. Susskind discusses how firewalls are related to periods of non-increasing complexity which typically only occur after an exponentially long time. The final lecture is about the thermodynamics of complexity, and "uncomplexity" as a resource for doing computational work. The author explains the remarkable power of "one clean qubit," in both computational terms and in space-time terms. This book is intended for graduate students and researchers who want to take the first steps towards the mysteries of black holes and their complexity

Dans ce livre, véritable phénomène d'édition aux États-Unis avec plus de 40 000 exemplaires vendus, les physiciens Leonard Susskind et George Hrabowsky prennent le lecteur par la main et l'emmènent progressivement, sans jamais le perdre, à la découverte des bases essentielles de la physique."--Page [4] de la couverture
Mécanique quantique, le minimum théorique : tout ce que vous avez besoin de savoir pour commencer à faire de la physique by Leonard Susskind( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in French and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leonard Susskind nous a enseigné la mécanique classique dans le premier volume de cette série, Le minimum théorique. Avec son co-auteur Art Friedman, il nous expose maintenant les bases théoriques et les concepts mathématiques associés au monde étrange de la physique quantique. Dans ce deuxième ouvrage, Susskind et Friedman proposent une introduction claire et vivante à ce domaine notoirement ardu et déroutant pour le néophyte. Ils nous font comprendre le comportement des objets sub-atomiques au travers d'abstractions mathématiques simples. A la différence de la plupart des ouvrages de vulgarisation, souvent mal à l'aise quant à la façon d'aborder les singularités de la mécanique quantique, le livre embrasse cet univers dans sa totalité, y compris les paradoxes si contraires à notre logique. Susskind et Friedman proposent des explications limpides aux problématiques d'état quantique, d'incertitude, d'intrication quantique ou de représentations de l'état d'une particule. Accessible mais rigoureux, Mécanique quantique s'adresse, comme Le minimum théorique, à tous ceux désireux de s'initier à la physique, à leur propre rythme."--Page 4 de la couverture
Relativité restreinte et théorie classique des champs, le minimum théorique : tout ce que vous avez besoin de savoir pour commencer à faire de la physique by Leonard Susskind( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le physicien Leonard Susskind et l'ingénieur en informatique Art Friedman sont de retour. Après nous avoir fait découvrir la mécanique classique et la mécanique quantique dans les deux premiers volumes de cette série mondialement acclamée (Le Minimum Théorique), Leonard Susskind et Art Friedman s'attachent ici à la théorie des champs, qui sous-tend la gravitation de Newton, l'électromagnétisme de Maxwell et la relativité restreinte d'Einstein. Sur la base d'équations mathématiques aussi simples que possibles (mais pas plus) et de leurs sympathiques alter egos Art et Lenny qui introduisent chaque leçon par un petit dialogue humoristique, Susskind et Friedman nous emmènent à la découverte des ondes, des forces et des particules, au travers d'un monde gouverné par les lois de la relativité restreinte. Ce troisième volume ne se départit pas de la marque qui a fait le succès des deux précédents : un contenu à la fois accessible et rigoureux, et indispensable à quiconque désireux d'aller au-delà de la simple vulgarisation sans savoir par où commencer."

La guerra de los agujeros negros : una controversia científica sobre las leyes últimas de la naturaleza by Leonard Susskind( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in Spanish and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

¿Qué sucede cuando algo cae en un agujero negro? ¡Desaparece!». Esto es lo que afirmó hace treinta años un joven físico llamado Stephen Hawking suscitando un fecundísimo debate sobre las leyes fundamentales del universo. Leonard Susskind, padre de la teoría de cuerdas y uno de los físicos más eminentes de nuestro tiempo y Gerard't Hooft, premio Nobel de Física, conscientes del reto que implicaba la propuesta de Hawking, fiel a la teoría de la relatividad general, contraatacaron con las leyes de la mecánica cuántica en la mano. Esta obra no es, simplemente, la historia de aquel enfrentamiento entre los más grandes científicos de nuestro tiempo sino que nos transmite la tensión intelectual de estos sabios y el esfuerzo que realizaron para aparcar sus más firmes convicciones y tratar de reconciliar ambas teorías para llegar a desentrañar las incógnitas últimas del universo

El paisaje cósmico : teoría de cuerdas y el mito del diseño inteligente by Leonard Susskind( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

¿Puede explicar la ciencia el hecho extraordinario de que el universo parece estar sorprendentemente bien diseñado para nuestra propia existencia? En este libro, Leonard Susskind, uno de los padres de la teoría de cuerdas (para algunos la gran esperanza actual de uan teoría de todo), aborda esta fundamental pregunta diseñan do un escenario, un "paisaje cósmico", en el que no tienen cabida elementos extracientíficos como los que utilizan todos aquellos que propugnan un "diseño (y diseñador) inteligente". "Creo firmemente -escribe Susskind- que la ciencia real requiere explicaciones que no incluyan agentes sobrenaturales. Y, al igual que creo que el ojo evolucionó por mecanismos darwinianos, creo que los físicos y los cosmólogos también deben encontrar una explicación natural de nuestro mundo, incluyendo los admirables y felices accidentes que conspiraron para hacer posible nuestra propia existencia". Para argumentar este conmovedor canto a la racionalidad, Susskind despliega su experiencia en la primera línea de la investigación en la física de altas energías y en la cosmología, ofreciéndonos, al tiempo que desarrolla sus originales tesis (que integra en la biología evolutiva), una amplia visión de la física actual, desde los diagramas de Feynman hasta los universos burbuja
Meccanica quantistica : il minimo indispensabile per fare della (buona) fisica by Leonard Susskind( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in Italian and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I concetti essenziali della meccanica quantistica vengono spiegati con chiarezza in questo volume da Léonard Susskind e Art Friedman. Si tratta di una introduzione a una disciplina notoriamente ardua. Ma sfruttando la potenza dimostrativa della matematica, i due autori danno una spiegazione esauriente del mondo delle particelle subatomiche. Diversamente da altre opere divulgative, che eludono le stranezze della fisica dei quanti, questo libro illustra tutti gli aspetti bizzarri della logica che la governa. I lettori troveranno presentazioni dettagliate dei concetti di stato, indeterminazione, dipendenza temporale, entanglement, onde e particelle, e di molto altro. Basato su una fortunata serie di lezioni che Susskind tiene alla Stanford University
