Proceedings of the 32nd Coral Gables Conference : the launching of la belle epoque of high energy physics & cosmology : a festschrift for Paul Frampton in his 60th year and memorial tributes to Behram Kursunoglu : Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 17-21 December 2003 by Conference on High Energy Physics and Cosmology( )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent experimental results with direct bearing on theories of cosmological dark matter/energy, as well as continuing work on neutrino masses and mixing, have invigorated both particle physics and cosmology, and should continue to do so well into the 21st century, thereby launching a beautiful new epoch for these fields. The expert contributions from this conference took stock of these developments. This volume contains papers by over 40 physicists that summarize and interpret the newest findings, and suggest future avenues to be explored. A number of new theoretical ideas are also presented, dealing with progress in understanding the dynamics and symmetries of strings and branes, renormalization in quantum field theory, possible Lorentz violation effects, and related problems. Ongoing and next generation gravitational and neutrino experiments are described, and the issues of unification are dealt with in the context of, and beyond, the standard model. Together, the contributions provide a useful blend of experimental and theoretical physics from many prominent physicists, including three Nobel Laureates. The volume also contains information of an historical nature, concerning the contributions to physics by Paul Frampton, on the occasion of his 60th year, and summarizing the career of Behram Kursunoglu (1922-2003)

On the path of Albert Einstein by Arnold Perlmutter( Book )

13 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this centennial year of Albert Einstein's birth, physicists are inspired more than ever and most enthusiastic to talk about the scientific works and human side of the greatest scientist of 'all time. Only until two decades ago, the General Theory of Relativity was not included in most university graduate programs - it remained as a separate discipline in physics, to be studied sometime in the future if time could be alloted for it. Albert Einstein regarded general relativity as his greatest achievement in physics compared to all other epoch-making contributions he made, including the dis­ covery of special relativity, photoelectric effect (the concept of photon), statistical analysis of emission and absorption of radiation by atoms in a gas, Brownian motion, and a host of other profound con­ tributions to physics. Now his theory of gravitation described within the framework'-of general relativity is being recognized with increasing importance with the passage of time. Einstein is becoming even greater with time. His General Theory of Relativity does, so far, describe successfully the heavenly phenomena associated with pulsars, black holes, 3 degree K fossil cosmic radiation left over from the big bang, expansion of the Uni­ verse, quasars, supernovae phenomena, and many other cosmic sequences of events. The fundamental significance of gravitation, the new picture of space and time concepts for the elementary particles, and the possible relation between the smallest and the largest is now being studied with greater appreciation and better understanding

The significance of nonlinearity in the natural sciences : [proceedings] by Orbis Scientiae( Book )

20 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In accordance with the established tradition of these annual meetings under the aegis of Orbis Scientiae we have, this year, included the very important field of "The Significance of Non­ linearity in the Natural Sciences." We are pleased to join many scientists in recognizing the nonlinearity arising from the under­ lying interaction of all natural phenomena. It is tempting to say that in the long run things are nonlinear and that we shall have to design new techniques and methods to solve nonlinear equations. This year's Orbis Scientiae did include four sessions on nonlinear equations pertaining to elementary particle physics, molecular physics, fluid dynamics, and also to biology. Our Center intends to pursue the inclusions of these topics in its future Orbis Scientiae. Appreciation is extended to Mrs. Helga S. Billings, Mrs. Elva Brady, and Ms. Yvonne L. Leber for their skillful typing of the proceedings, which they have performed with great enthusiasm and dedication.

Fundamental interactions in physics; [proceedings] by Arnold Perlmutter( Book )

12 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Center for Theoretical Studies of the University of Miami has been the host of annual winter conferences whose content has expanded from the particular topic of symmetry principles in high energy physics to encompass the bases and relationships of many branches of know­ ledge. The scope of the Tenth Coral Gables Conference on Fundamental Interactions included astrophysics, atomic and molecular physics, fundamental theories of gravi­ tation, of electromagnetism, and of hadrons, gauge theories of weak and electromagnetic interactions, high energy physics, liquid helium physics, and theoretical biology. The range of topics is partially represented by the scientific talks which form this book. The tangible fruits of the conference are these papers; the intangible ones are the changes of outlook which the participants experienced and the new appreciation they gained of the basic unity of all knowledge. Historically, the early Coral Gables Conferences witnessed the introduction of the concept of the quark and the attempts to formulate a unification of the in­ ternal and space-time symmetries of the elementary particles, while later ones were the initial forums for new unified theories of interactions and for the ideas of scaling, light-cone dominance, and partons

Fundamental interactions in physics and astrophysics by Geoffrey J Iverson( Book )

18 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume is a compilation of the talks presented at the 1972 Coral Gables Conference on Fundamental Interactions at High Energy held at the University of Miami by the Center for Theoretical Studies. The volume contains, in addition, contributions by B. Kursunoglu and G. Breit, which were not actually presented, but are included as tributes to Professor P.A.M. Dirac, to whom the Conference is formally dedicated. Again this year the theme, style and format of each session was in most cases the responsibility of the section leaders who also cons~ituted the Conference Committee. This organization of the conference meant that each section was coherent and essentially self-contained, and as weIl, allowed for spirited panel discussions to critically summarize, and to indicate new directions for future research. This volume is divided into four sections on Constructive Field Theory, and Advances in the Theory of Weak and Electro­ magnetic Interactions, Cosmic Evolution,and New Vistas in the Theory of Fundamental Interactions. Each section represents a thorough, penetrating survey of one of the most active research programs of theoretical physics. Thanks are due to typists Mrs. Helga S. Billings, Mrs. Jackie Zagursky, Miss Connie Retting, and to Mrs. Norma Gayle Hagan for her industrious supervision of the many programs involved in the conference. This conference received some support from the Atomic Energy Commission and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Gauge theories, massive neutrinos, and proton decay by Arnold Perlmutter( Book )

14 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and held by 260 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
Progress in lasers and laser fusion by Behram Kurşunoğlu( Book )

11 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains a portion of the presentations given at the session on Laser-Fusion and Laser Develop­ ment of Orbis Scientiae II, held at the Center for Theoretical Studies, University of Miami, from January 20 through January 24, 1975. This second in the new series of meetings held at the CTS strove to implement the goals professed in the organization of Orbis Scientiae in 1974, namely to encourage scientists in several disci­ plines to exchange views, not only with colleagues who share similar research interests, but also to acquaint scientists in other fields with the leading ideas and current results in each area represented. Thus, an effort has been made to include papers in each session that discuss fundamental issues in a way which is com­ prehensible to scientists who are specialists in other areas. Also in keeping with the philosophy of Orbis Scientiae, the major topics each year are to be varied, with the invariant being the inclusion of developments in fundamental physics. The discussions of the current state of the art in lasers and fusion represented in this volume are not only of interest because they deal with newly unfolding branches of physics, but also because of their potential technological and societal significance. The paper by v. N. Lugovoi and A. M. Prokhorov was not presented at Orbis Scientiae II, but is included because of its relevance to the topics in this volume
