Facing up : science and its cultural adversaries by Steven Weinberg( )

27 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Chinese and held by 2,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each of these essays, which span fifteen years, struggles in one way or another with the necessity of facing up to the discovery that the laws of nature are impersonal, with no hint of a special status for human beings. Defending the spirit of science against its cultural adversaries, these essays express a viewpoint that is reductionist, realist, and devoutly secular. Each is preceded by a new introduction that explains its provenance and, if necessary, brings it up to date. Together, they afford the general reader the unique pleasure of experiencing the superb sense, understanding, and knowledge of one of the most interesting and forceful scientific minds of our era."--Jacket
Dark matter in the universe : Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics, Jerusalem, 30 Dec. 1986-8 Jan. 1987 by John N Bahcall( )

31 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in English and held by 1,980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If standard gravitational theory is correct, then most of the matter in the universe is in an unidentified form which does not emit enough light to have been detected by current instrumentation. This book is the second edition of the lectures given at the 4th Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics, with new material added. The lectures are devoted to the "missing matter" problem in the universe, the search to understand dark matter
Statistical mechanics of membranes and surfaces : Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics, Jerusalem, 28 Dec. 87-6 Jan. 88 by David R Nelson( )

24 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 1,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fifth Jerusalem Winter School on the Statistical Mechanics of Membranes and Surfaces was held from December 28, 1987 to January 6, 1988. The School focused on the theory of the highly convoluted surface fluctuations which appear in such diverse condensed matter system as microemulsions, wetting and growth interfaces, bulk lyotropic liquid crystals, chalcogenide glasses and sheet polymers. The delicate interplay between geometry and statistical mechanics in these systems can be described using tools from the fields og polymer physics, differential geometry, and critical phenomena. Our theoretical understanding of these problems can be tested by a wide variety of laboratory experiments, which probe fluctuations ranging from relatively benign capillary waves at interfaces, to wild undulations in biological membranes. The School was fortunate to have many lecturers who were outstanding teachers as well as distinguished scientists. Virtually all the lecturers contributed manuscripts to this volume, which can serve as a useful introduction for theorists and experimentalists who wish to learn more about this rapidly developing field

To explain the world : the discovery of modern science by Steven Weinberg( Book )

34 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Weinberg takes us across centuries from ancient Miletus to medieval Baghdad and Oxford, from Plato's Academy and the Museum of Alexandria to the cathedral school of Chartres and the Royal Society of London. He shows that the scientists of ancient and medieval times not only did not understand what we understand about the world--they did not understand what there is to understand, or how to understand it. Yet over the centuries, through the struggle to solve such mysteries as the curious backward movement of the planets and the rise and fall of the tides, the modern discipline of science eventually emerged"--Amazon.com

Gravitation and cosmology : principles and applications of the general theory of relativity by Steven Weinberg( Book )

32 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weinberg's 1972 work, in his description, had two purposes. The first was practical to bring together and assess the wealth of data provided over the previous decade while realizing that newer data would come in even as the book was being printed. He hoped the comprehensive picture would prepare the reader and himself to that new data as it emerged. The second was to produce a textbook about general relativity in which geometric ideas were not given a starring role for (in his words) too great an emphasis on geometry can only obscure the deep connections between gravitation and the rest of physics
Elementary particles and the laws of physics : the 1986 Dirac memorial lectures by Richard P Feynman( Book )

46 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps the two most important conceptual breakthroughs in twentieth century physics are relativity and quantum mechanics. Developing a theory that combines the two seamlessly is a difficult and ongoing challenge. This accessible book contains intriguing explorations of this theme by the distinguished physicists Richard Feynman and Steven Weinberg. Richard Feynman's contribution examines the nature of antiparticles, and in particular the relationship between quantum spin and statistics. In his essay, Steven Weinberg speculates on how Einstein's theory of gravitation might be reconciled with quantum theory in the final laws of physics. Both these Nobel laureates have made huge contributions to fundamental research in physics, as well as to the popularization of science. Anyone interested in the development of modern physics will find this a fascinating book
Lectures on quantum mechanics by Steven Weinberg( Book )

33 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and German and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg combines his exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition to provide a concise introduction to modern quantum mechanics. Ideally suited to a one-year graduate course, this textbook is also a useful reference for researchers. Readers are introduced to the subject through a review of the history of quantum mechanics and an account of classic solutions of the Schrödinger equation, before quantum mechanics is developed in a modern Hilbert space approach. The textbook covers many topics not often found in other books on the subject, including alternatives to the Copenhagen interpretation, Bloch waves and band structure, the Wigner-Eckart theorem, magic numbers, isospin symmetry, the Dirac theory of constrained canonical systems, general scattering theory, the optical theorem, the 'in-in' formalism, the Berry phase, Landau levels, entanglement and quantum computing. Problems are included at the ends of chapters, with solutions available for instructors at www.cambridge.org/9781107028722"--

Time in powers of ten : natural phenomena and their timescales by G. 't Hooft( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this richly illustrated book, Nobel laureate Gerard 't Hooft and theoretical physicist Stefan Vandoren describe the enormous diversity of natural phenomena that take place at different timescales. In the tradition of the bestseller Powers of Ten, the authors zoom in and out in time, each step with a factor of ten. Starting from one second, timescales are enlarged until processes are reached that take much longer than the age of the universe. After the largest possible eternities, the reader is treated to the shortest and fastest phenomena known. Then the authors increase with powers of ten, until again the second is reached at the end of the book."--Page 4 of cover

The quantum theory of fields by Steven Weinberg( Book )

43 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this third volume of The Quantum Theory of Fields, available for the first time in paperback, Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg continues his masterly exposition of quantum field theory. This volume presents a self-contained, up-to-date and comprehensive introduction to supersymmetry, a highly active area of theoretical physics. The text introduces and explains a broad range of topics, including supersymmetric algebras, supersymmetric field theories, extended supersymmetry, supergraphs, non-perturbative results, theories of supersymmetry in higher dimensions, and supergravity. A thorough review is given of the phenomenological implications of supersymmetry, including theories of both gauge and gravitationally-mediated supersymmetry breaking. Also provided is an introduction to mathematical techniques, based on holomorphy and duality, that have proved so fruitful in recent developments. This book contains much material not found in other books on supersymmetry, including previously unpublished results. Exercises are included
