The challenges to nuclear power in the twenty-first century by Behram Kurşunoğlu( )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the proceedings of the Global Foundations Inc.'s 22nd International Energy Forum, held November 5-6, 1999, and is highlighted by presentations by nuclear experts from around the world, including several officials of the US Department of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The papers address the need for nuclear energy in the new century; the issues of competition with other energy sources; the position of nuclear power in the context of critical global and environmental problems; the necessity of commercial nuclear power development to deal with nuclear arms proliferation; and the necessity to counter the prejudices and obstacles to the development of nuclear energy sources
Quantum gravity, generalized theory of gravitation, and superstring theory-based unification by Behram Kurşunoğlu( )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Held December 16-19, 1999, these proceedings are derived from the Global Foundation Inc.'s Orbis Scientiae 1999. Topics include: cosmological parameters; unifying elementary particle physics; cosmology; superstrings; and black holes
The role of neutrinos, strings, gravity, and variable cosmological constant in elementary particle physics by Behram Kurşunoğlu( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, the proceedings of the Coral Gables Conference, held December 12-16, 2000, contains some recent developments in the theory of gravitation, and discusses, in particular, the fact that gravity, like electrodynamics, is both attractive and repulsive. This property of gravitation enables us: (1) to explain the observed expansion of the universe, and, at the same time, its increasing acceleration; (2) to clarify the reasons for the expansion of the universe, together with competing forces of repulsive quintessence and the gravitational force of ordinary matter. Furthermore, given very strong gravitational forces of black holes, particles reach high energies and copiously emit gamma rays as well as neutrinos. The fact that these gamma rays burst at cosmic regions does imply that gravity can be a source of electromagnetism. We have thus obtained an experimental fact that the two long-range forces of gravity and electricity are unified. The conference also had discussions on neutrino masses, the cosmological constant, and violation of the Lorentz invariance
Confluence of cosmology, massive neutrinos, elementary particles, and gravitation by Behram Kurşunoğlu( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This conference was based on the discovery that neutrinos are massive objects, which gives elementary particle physics a new direction. This is the first in a series of conferences that will discuss the implications of this discovery and related issues, such as the impact on cosmology, proton spin content, strings, fractional spin and statistics, gravitation, and accelerated expansion of the universe

8 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As millions of people around the world who have read her diary attest, Anne Frank, the most familiar victim of the Holocaust, has a remarkable place in contemporary memory. This volume of essays looks beyond this young girl's words at the numerous ways people have engaged her life and writing. Apart from officially sanctioned works and organizations, there exists a prodigious amount of cultural production, which encompasses literature, art, music, film, television, blogs, pedagogy, scholarship, religious ritual, and comedy. Created by both artists and amateurs, these responses to Anne Frank range from veneration to irreverence. Although at times they challenge conventional perceptions of her significance, these works testify to the power of Anne Frank, the writer, and Anne Frank, the cultural phenomenon, as people worldwide forge their own connections with the diary and its author
New frontiers in high-energy physics by Arnold Perlmutter( Book )

12 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics and politics of energy by Behram Kurşunoğlu( )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1995 conference was organized around two closely related themes and focused on the two pivotal aspects of energy, that is, economics and politics, both of which are decisive in providing long-term national and international strategies for the next century. Originally the program was going to include the participants from the new oil powers in Central Asia and Caucasus, newly independent from the former U.S.S.R. However, probably both economics and politics prevented their participation. Global energy projections, technological changes such as nuclear power and the fuel geopolitics of the coming century will be the basis for political and strategic planning. Based on the scenarios of likely global economic and population growth and of new energy technologies, what are foreseeable scenarios for the geopolitics of energy a half century ahead? What fresh worldwide systems should we start now? The political problems with profound economic impact could include, for example, the significance of the continuing worldwide growth of nuclear power, with such issues as the use of Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) and Plutonium obtained from the dismantling of U.S. and former U.S.S.R. nuclear weapons; the urgency of nonproliferation; the disposal of civilian and military nuclear waste; and, nuclear power alternatives. In spite of U.S. reluctance, the increasing role of nuclear power is becoming apparent in several countries, and its potential has become an important political factor today
