The particle odyssey : a journey to the heart of the matter by F. E Close( )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With more than three hundred illustrations, The particle odyssey takes us on an exhilarating tour of the subatomic world. The pictures here are truly marvelous--over 100 of the best images ever taken of particle 'events'--mysterious, abstract, often beautiful photographs of the tracks of subatomic particles as they speed, curve, dance, or explode through cloud and bubble chambers, stacks of photographic emulsion, and giant multi-element detectors. There are illustrations of spiraling electrons, the tell-tale 'vees' of strange particles, matter and antimatter born from raw energy, energetic jets of particles spraying out from the decay points of quarks and gluons. Complementing the illustrations is a vividly written account of the key experiments and fundamental discoveries that have led to our current understanding of the nature of the universe. There are individual portraits of all the major subatomic particles, from the electron to the newly discovered top quark. The authors describe the history of experimental particle physics: its origins in the discovery of X-rays in 1895; the dissection of the atom by Rutherford and others; the unexpected revelations of the cosmic rays; the discovery of quarks and the rise of the 'standard model' in the last part of the 20th century

Schwamm drüber! Das beschauliche Lehrerdasein von Philipp Willms gerät ins Wanken, als seine Beförderung scheitert. Ausgerechnet sein Intimfeind bekommt die Stelle - und darf nun auch die bildhübsche Referendarin Miriam ausbilden, auf die doch Willms ein Auge geworfen hat. Plötzlich erwachen in Willms verletzter Beamtenseele lang vergessene Jagdinstinkte: Rivale! Frau! Beute! Und so entwickelt er einen perfiden Plan, um den Kollegen in die Pfanne zu hauen und doch noch ans Ziel zu gelangen. Doch was als kleine Intrige beginnt, verselbstständigt sich auf ungeahnte Weise. Denn in diesem Kollegium kann kein Lehrer dem anderen über den Weg trauen - und erst recht nicht seinen Schülern. Nie wurde scharfzüngiger über das Abenteuer Schule geschrieben. 'Eine bitterböse Satire.' Berliner Morgenpost 'Locker und witzig geschrieben.' Ruhr Nachrichten Michael Marten, geboren im Ruhrgebiet, lebt und arbeitet seit 1995 in Berlin und weiss, wovon er schreibt, denn natürlich ist er Lehrer
