Colliding worlds : how cutting-edge science is redefining contemporary art by Arthur I Miller( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent decades, an exciting new art movement has emerged in which artists utilize and illuminate the latest advances in science. Some of their provocative creations--a live rabbit implanted with the fluorescent gene of a jellyfish, a gigantic glass-and-chrome sculpture of the Big Bang (pictured on the cover)--can be seen in traditional art museums and magazines, while others are being made by leading designers at Pixar, Google's Creative Lab, and the MIT Media Lab. In Colliding Worlds, Arthur I. Miller takes readers on a wild journey to explore this new frontier. Miller, the author of several celebrated books on science and creativity, traces the movement from its seeds a century ago--when Einstein's theory of relativity helped shape the thinking of the Cubists--to its flowering today. From NanoArt to Big Data, Miller reveals the extraordinary possibilities when art and science collide.--From publisher description

"How can new knowledge be created from already existing knowledge? Insights of Genius shows how seeing in all it's many forms - insight, revelation, a distinctive point of view - is central to the greatest advances of the human intellect. Artists and scientists alike rely on visual representations of worlds both visible and invisible"--Page 4 of cover

A Pro Scientia Vivea Title
Deciphering the cosmic number : the strange friendship of Wolfgang Pauli and Carl Jung by Arthur I Miller( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1932, the groundbreaking physicist Wolfgang Pauli met the famous psychoanalyst Carl Jung. Pauli was fascinated by the inner reaches of his own psyche and not afraid to dabble in the occult, while Jung looked to science for answers to the psychological questions that tormented him. Their rich friendship led them, in Jung's words, into "the no-man's land between physics and the psychology of the unconscious ... the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times." Both were obsessed with the far-reaching significance of the number "137"--A primal number that seemed to hint at the origins of the universe itself. Their quest to solve its enigma led them on a lifelong journey into the ancient secrets of alchemy, the work of Johannes Kepler, and the Chinese Book of Changes (Yijing). This is the story of an extraordinary and fruitful collaboration between two of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century.--From publisher description
Early quantum electrodynamics : a source book by Arthur I Miller( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a panoramic view during 1927-1938 of the development of a physical theory that has been on the cutting edge of theoretical physics ever since P.A.M. Dirac's quantization of the electromagnetic field in 1927: quantum electrodynamics. Like the classic papers chosen for this volume, the introductory Frame-Setting Essay emphasizes conceptual transformations that carried physicists to the threshold of renormalization theory. For the most part the leaders in fundamental developments in quantum electro-dynamics were the same physicists whose focus on conceptual issues led to quantum mechanics: Niels Bohr, P.A.M. Dirac, Werner Heisenberg and Wolfgang Pauli. Once again they turned to insights and methods that had been so successful in formulating quantum mechanics, such as seeking transformations of the concept of intuition and correspondence-limit methods. Along this route they tried to formulate a version of quantum mechanics consistent with special relativity and gauge invariance that could treat with no divergences the interaction between light and electrons. It spawned theoretical nuclear physics and set the stage for the post-war formulation of a divergenceless quantum electrodynamics by Sin-Itoro Tomonaga, Richard P. Feynman and Julian Schwinger." "In 1949 Freeman J. Dyson emphasized that, in fact, 'no new ideas or techniques' were required for this breakthrough. Then why had a proper renormalized quantum electrodynamics not occurred earlier? This is one among several problems addressed here that take us into the realm of the history of scientific ideas. For example, the published papers and correspondence of Bohr, Dirac, Heisenberg and Pauli take us through a fascinating analysis into the meaning and structure of a scientific theory."
Sixty-two years of uncertainty : historical, philosophical, and physical inquiries into the foundations of quantum mechanics by Arthur I Miller( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and Spanish and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains proceedings from the International School of History of Science, Sixty-Two Years of Uncertainty: Historical Philosophical and Physical Inquiries into the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, convened at the Ettore Maj orana Centre for Scientific Culture, Erice, Sicily, 5-15 August 1989. In response to the high state of enth, usiasm from the sixty-one participants there were six to eight lectures each day, beginning at 9:00 AM and often ending at 7:00 PM. Vigorous discussions took place at every opportunity, even including the delightful excursions. The papers presented here are by the twelve invited lecturers (in some cases with coauthors) with a contribution from Philip Pearle. AU of us attending the conference express our appreciation to the exemplary staff of the Ettore Majorana Centre, and particularly to the Centre's Director, Professor Antonino Zichichi. for superb hospitality which made this conference a memorable intellectual and cultural experience. It is a pleasure to acknowledge financial support from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Scientific Affairs Division

Eistein y Picasso : el espacio, el tiempo y los estragos de la belleza by Arthur I Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

¿Qué es la creatividad? ¿Existe algún vínculo entre la forma de pensar de un gran científico y la de un gran artista? Para responder estos interrogantes, este apasionante libro recorre las biografías paralelas de Einstein y Picasso, dos personalidades excepcionales que, a comienzos del Siglo XX, marcaron un hito en el pensamiento y el arte contemporáneos en circunstancias sorprendentemente similares, pues ambos estaban entonces en la veintena y eran prácticamente desconocidos. En efecto, Albert Einstein formuló en 1905 la teoría de la relatividad especial, y Pablo Picasso, con Las señoritas de Aviñón, echó por tierra casi cinco siglos de convenciones artísticas
