The quantum universe by Anthony J. G Hey ( Book )
13 editions published between 1986 and 1998 in English and German and held by 975 libraries worldwide
The Quantum Universe is the first popular book to give a non-mathematical pictorial account of quantum physics, the foundation of our current understanding of nature. For so long the province of mathematicians and physicists alone, the beauty and significance of quantum mechanics has remained hidden to the nonspecialist. Yet its impact on technology has been enormous. The modern electronics industry with the silicon chip that has revolutionised so many aspects of modern life owes its existence to an understanding of the quantum nature of semiconductors. The text explains exactly what quantum mechanics is in a simple nonmathematical way, and is complemented throughout by many superb colour and black-and-white photographs illustrating the varied facets of quantum phenomena. The Quantum Universe will provide a fascinating and accessible introduction to one of the most important scientific disciplines of the twentieth century. Final-year students at school, general readers with an interest in science, and undergraduates in science subjects will all be able to enjoy and benefit from this novel exposition.
Grid computing making the global infrastructure a reality ( Book )
15 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 907 libraries worldwide
Grid computing is applying the resources of many computers in a network to a single problem at the same time Grid computing appears to be a promising trend for three reasons: its ability to make more cost-effective use of a given amount of computer resources; as a way to solve problems that can't be approached without an enormous amount of computing power; and because it suggests that the resources of many computers can be cooperatively and perhaps synergistically harnessed and managed as a collaboration toward a common objective. This book features contributions from the major players in the field and covers all aspects of grid technology from motivation to applications. It provides an extensive state-of-the-art guide in grid computing and is essential reading for researchers in computing and engineering, physicists, statisticians, engineers and mathematicians and IT policy makers.
Einstein's mirror by Anthony J. G Hey ( Book )
10 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 787 libraries worldwide
"The young Einstein was haunted by a strange thought: would his image appear in a mirror whilst he and the mirror were moving at the speed of light? His questions were resolved with the creation of the theory of special relativity. Einstein's Mirror is a book on relativity with a difference. Following the successful format of their earlier book, The Quantum Universe, the authors blend a simple, non-mathematical account of the underlying theory of special relativity and gravitation with a description of the way these theories have been triumphantly supported by experiment." "Final-year students at school, general readers with an interest in science and undergraduates in science subjects will all be able to enjoy and benefit from this novel exposition."--Jacket.
Gauge theories in particle physics : a practical introduction by Ian Johnston Rhind Aitchison ( Book )
37 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in English and held by 707 libraries worldwide
"This book provides an accessible, practical and comprehensive introduction to the three gauge theories of the 'standard model' of particle physics: quantum electrodynamics (QED), quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and the electroweak theory. For each of them, the authors provide a thorough discussion of the main conceptual points; a detailed exposition of many practical calculations of physical quantities; and a comparison of these quantitative predictions with experimental results. For this two-volume third edition, much of the book has been re-written to reflect developments over the last decade, both in the curricula of university courses, and in particle physics research. On the one hand, substantial new material has been introduced which is intended for use in undergraduate physics courses. New introductory chapters provide a precise historical account of the properties of quarks and leptons, and a qualitative overview of the quantum field description of their interactions, at a level appropriate to third year courses. The chapter on relativistic quantum mechanics has been enlarged and is supplemented by additional sections on scattering theory and Green functions, in a form appropriate to fourth year courses. On the other hand, since precision experiments now test the theories beyond lowest order in perturbation theory, an understanding of the data requires a more sophisticated knowledge of quantum field theory, including ideas of renormalisation. The treatment of quantum field theory has therefore been considerably extended so as to provide a uniquely accessible and self-contained introduction to quantum field dynamics, as described by Feynman graphs. The level is suitable for advanced fourth year undergraduates and first year graduates. These developments are all contained in the first volume, which ends with a discussion of higher order corrections in QED; the second volume is devoted to the non-Abelian gauge theories of QCD and the electroweak theory. As in the first two editions, emphasis is placed throughout on developing realistic calculations from a secure physical and conceptual basis."--BOOK JACKET (V.1).
The new quantum universe by Anthony J. G Hey ( Book )
16 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 690 libraries worldwide
Feynman lectures on computation by Richard P Feynman ( Book )
23 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 601 libraries worldwide
From 1983 to 1986, the legendary physicist and teacher Richard Feynman gave a course at Caltech called "Potentialities and Limitations of Computing Machines." Although the lectures are over ten years old, most of the material is timeless and presents a "Feynmanesque" overview of many standard and some not-so-standard topics in computer science. These include compatibility, Turing machines (or as Feynman said, "Mr. Turing's machines"), information theory, Shannon's Theorem, reversible computation, the thermodynamics of computation, the quantum limits to computation, and the physics of VLSI devices. Taken together, these lectures represent a unique exploration of the fundamental limitations of digital computers.
