Classical and quantum black holes( )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Black holes are becoming increasingly important in contemporary research in astrophysics, cosmology, theoretical physics, and mathematics. Indeed, they provoke some of the most fascinating questions in fundamental physics, which may lead to revolutions in scientific thought. Written by distinguished scientists, Classical and Quantum Black Holes provides a comprehensive panorama of black hole physics and mathematics from a modern point of view. The book begins with a general introduction, followed by five parts that cover several modern aspects of the subject, ranging from the observational and the experimental to the more theoretical and mathematical issues. The material is written at a level suitable for postgraduate students entering the field
Groups and manifolds : lectures for physicists with examples in Mathematica by P Frè( )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Groups and Manifolds is an introductory, yet a complete self-contained course on mathematics of symmetry: group theory and differential geometry of symmetric spaces, with a variety of examples for physicists, touching briefly also on super-symmetric field theories. The core of the course is focused on the construction of simple Lie algebras, emphasizing the double interpretation of the ADE classification as applied to finite rotation groups and to simply laced simple Lie algebras. Unique features of this book are the full-fledged treatment of the exceptional Lie algebras and a rich collection of MATHEMATICA Notebooks implementing various group theoretical constructions
Il fascino oscuro dell'inflazione Alla scoperta della storia dell'Universo by P Frè( )

17 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

È dalla più remota antichità che l'uomo si interroga sulla struttura dell'Universo e sulle leggi che lo governano. Ma il progresso compiuto all'inizio del XX secolo non ha paragoni rispetto a quello di tutti i secoli precedenti: nel 1915 fu formulata la relatività generale, indispensabile per inquadrare tutti i fenomeni cosmici e astrofisici; tra il 1920 e il 1930 furono determinate le reali dimensioni dell'Universo visibile e fu scoperta la sua costante espansione. La cosmologia ha poi fatto un grande salto di qualità a cavallo tra la fine del XX secolo e l'inizio del XXI, quando una serie di osservazioni ha confermato che: L'Universo è spazialmente "piatto", in seguito all'inflazione cosmica che, una frazione di secondo dopo il Big Bang, ne ha gonfiato le dimensioni di decine o centinaia di miliardi di volte. L'Universo è costituito al 70% da energia oscura e al 24% da materia oscura: la materia visibile, cioè stelle e galassie, rappresenta solo il 6% del totale. Attualmente l'espansione dell'Universo è in una fase di nuova accelerazione. L'Universo inflazionario è una specula che forse rivela i misteri delle leggi fisiche a piccolissime distanze e altissime energie laddove dovrebbe trovarsi il regno delle superstringhe e della gravità quantistica. In questo libro viene ripercorsa la grande avventura del pensiero umano che dalla concezione aristotelica di un mondo statico eterno e in realtà piccolissimo è approdato alla contemporanea visione di un cosmo dinamico e immenso, germogliato però da una infinitesima fluttuazione quantistica
Gravity, a geometrical course by P Frè( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Gravity, a Geometrical Course' presents general relativity (GR) in a systematic and exhaustive way, covering three aspects that are homogenized into a single texture: i) the mathematical, geometrical foundations, exposed in a self consistent contemporary formalism, ii) the main physical, astrophysical and cosmological applications, updated to the issues of contemporary research and observations, with glimpses on supergravity and superstring theory, iii) the historical development of scientific ideas underlying both the birth of general relativity and its subsequent evolution. The book is divided in two volumes. Volume One is dedicated to the development of the theory and basic physical applications. It guides the reader from the foundation of special relativity to Einstein field equations, illustrating some basic applications in astrophysics. A detailed account of the historical and conceptual development of the theory is combined with the presentation of its mathematical foundations. Differentiable manifolds, fibre-bundles, differential forms, and the theory of connections are covered, with a sketchy introduction to homology and cohomology. (Pseudo)-Riemannian geometry is presented both in the metric and in the vielbein approach. Physical applications include the motions in a Schwarzschild field leading to the classical tests of GR (light-ray bending and periastron advance) discussion of relativistic stellar equilibrium, white dwarfs, Chandrasekhar mass limit and polytropes. An entire chapter is devoted to tests of GR and to the indirect evidence of gravitational wave emission. The formal structure of gravitational theory is at all stages compared with that of non gravitational gauge theories, as a preparation to its modern extension, namely supergravity, discussed in the second volume. Pietro Frè is Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Torino, Italy. He has taught General Relativity for 15 years
Gravity, a geometrical course by P Frè( )

'Gravity, a Geometrical Course' presents general relativity (GR) in a systematic and exhaustive way, covering three aspects that are homogenized into a single texture: i) the mathematical, geometrical foundations, exposed in a self consistent contemporary formalism, ii) the main physical, astrophysical and cosmological applications, updated to the issues of contemporary research and observations, with glimpses on supergravity and superstring theory, iii) the historical development of scientific ideas underlying both the birth of general relativity and its subsequent evolution. The book is divided in two volumes. Volume Two is covers black holes, cosmology and an introduction to supergravity. The aim of this volume is two-fold. It completes the presentation of GR and it introduces the reader to theory of gravitation beyond GR, which is supergravity. Starting with a short history of the black hole concept, the book covers the Kruskal extension of the Schwarzschild metric, the causal structures of Lorentzian manifolds, Penrose diagrams and a detailed analysis of the Kerr-Newman metric. An extensive historical account of the development of modern cosmology is followed by a detailed presentation of its mathematical structure, including non-isotropic cosmologies and billiards, de Sitter space and inflationary scenarios, perturbation theory and anisotropies of the Cosmic Microwave Background. The last three chapters deal with the mathematical and conceptual foundations of supergravity in the frame of free differential algebras. Branes are presented both as classical solutions of the bulk theory and as world-volume gauge theories with particular emphasis on the geometrical interpretation of kappa-supersymmetry. The rich bestiary of special geometries underlying supergravity lagrangians is presented, followed by a chapter providing glances on the equally rich collection of special solutions of supergravity.

A Conceptual History of Space and Symmetry : From Plato to the Superworld by P Frè( )

10 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents the author's personal historical perspective and conceptual analysis on symmetry and geometry. The author enlightens with modern views the historical process which led to the contemporary vision of space and symmetry that are used in theoretical physics and in particular in such abstract and advanced descriptions of the physical world as those provided by supergravity. The book is written intertwining storytelling and philosophical argumentation with some essential technical material. The author argues that symmetry and geometry are inextricably entangled and their current meaning is the result of a long process of abstraction which was determined through history and can be understood within the analytic system of thought of western civilization that started with the Ancient Greeks. The evolution of geometry and symmetry theory in the last forty years has been deeply and constructively influenced by supersymmetry/supergravity and the allied constructions of strings and branes. Further advances in theoretical physics cannot be based simply on the Galilean method of interrogating nature and then formulating a testable theory to explain the observed phenomena. One ought to interrogate human thought, meaning frontier-line mathematics concerned with geometry and symmetry in order to find there the threads of so far unobserved correspondences, reinterpretations and renewed conceptions."--Publisher's description
Advances in geometry and Lie algebras from supergravity by P Frè( )

13 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book aims to provide an overview of several topics in advanced Differential Geometry and Lie Group Theory, all of them stemming from mathematical problems in supersymmetric physical theories. It presents a mathematical illustration of the main development in geometry and symmetry theory that occurred under the fertilizing influence of supersymmetry/supergravity. The contents are mainly of mathematical nature, but each topic is introduced by historical information and enriched with motivations from high energy physics, which help the reader in getting a deeper comprehension of the subject."--Publisher's description
The N=2 wonderland : from Calabi-Yau manifolds to topological field-theories by P Frè( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents, in a unifying perspective, the topics related to N=2 supersymmetry in two dimensions. Beginning with the Kähler structure of D=4 supergravity Lagrangians, through the analysis of string compactifications on Calabi-Yau manifolds, one reaches the heart of the matter with the chiral ring structure of N=2 conformal field theories and its relation to topological field theory models and Landau-Ginzburg models. In addition, mirror symmetry, topological twists and Picard-Fuchs equations are discussed

Tullio Regge : an eclectic genius : from quantum gravity to computer play( Book )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of original articles, collected papers and commentaries by contemporary scholars illustrates the work of Tullio Regge, a giant in the panorama of theoretical physics of the second half of the 20th century, probably the most influential Italian physicist after Enrico Fermi. His brilliant contributions to quantum theory and to general relativity have marked significant turning points in the development of scientific knowledge: Regge poles, Regge behaviour, Regge calculus and his geometric approach to general relativity and its extensions, continuing to have a profound impact on the work of the large theoretical community today. Moreover, his public engagement for the dissemination of scientific culture, his mastering of multimedia technology for outreach and play, and his support for important social causes such as the fight against pseudosciences and the rights of the disabled make him a charismatic character across time, space and disciplines"--

Il Codice Cromlon by P Frè( )

1 edition published in 2008 in Italian and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nicoletta, una vedova cinquantenne di raffinata cultura e grandi disponibilità economiche si innamora perdutamente di un dottorando venticinquenne che vede in lei solo un'occasionale ed esotica distrazione. A quali follie può essere spinta una donna matura ed intelligente dalla tragica passione amorosa per un giovanotto? A tutte! Persino a quella di diventare la committente e la complice di ladri professionisti, dediti al traffico illegale di antichi oggetti d'arte. L'oggetto commissionato all'organizzazione criminosa da Nicoletta, per il tramite di un equivoco libraio triestino, è un antico e misterioso codice medioevale, al cui recupero legale sta invece dedicando ogni sforzo il prof. Giulio Granelli che è il relatore di tesi del giovane amante della signora. Fisico prestato all'archeologia, pioniere delle tecniche di scavo virtuale e studioso di fama mondiale, il prof. Granelli ha trovato esili tracce di questo codice e delle oscure vicende in esso narrate in testimonianze lontanissime tra loro sia geograficamente che temporalmente. Dalla Gran Bretagna dell'epoca Arturiana, alla Polonia rinascimentale, passando per la valle padana dell'epoca sforzesca, fino alla Turchia ed all'Ucraina contemporanee, le peregrinazioni del misterioso libro si intrecciano con le avventure e le passioni di molti diversi personaggi appartenenti sia al passato che alla contemporaneità. Ma qual è la storia narrata nelle pagine ingiallite di quell'antico libro che continuamente sfugge agli sforzi del professore per impadronirsi dei suoi segreti? E' essa stessa il racconto di un lunghissimo viaggio alla ricerca di un aiuto impossibile e di un altro viaggio interiore alla ricerca della propria identità perduta. Soltanto dopo molte avventure e dopo alcuni avvenimenti anche tragici il professore potrà finalmente leggere il misterioso racconto del codice Cromlon. Tuttavia le sorprese associate alle peripezie di questo libro straordinario non avranno fine con tale lettura. Qualche cosa di molto intrigante è ancora in agguato nelle pagine finali di questo romanzo, dove realtà fattuale e realtà virtuale si andranno a confondere in maniera del tutto inattesa ed inquietante
