The river of time by I. D Novikov( )

31 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 2,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can we change the past? The surprising answer to this question can be found in the final chapters of this book. Examining both the history of the study of time, from the classical Greeks through to the present day, and presenting in detail the modern state of physical research on the subject, this book is a superb overview of a fascinating subject. The figures who have helped to shape our views on time are presented as real people, in the context of their own times and struggles: from Socrates' troubles in Athens, to the experiences of physicists under the old Soviet Union. In addition Novikov details his personal experiences with great Russian and Western physicists, such as Sakharov, Zeldovich, Rees and Hawking, and his travels in the West before the fall of the Iron Curtain

Edwin Hubble, the discoverer of the big bang universe by A. S Sharov( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first complete account of the scientific life and work of Edwin Hubble, whose discoveries form the basis of all theories of the evolution of the universe. One of the outstanding astronomers of the twentieth century, Hubble studied the velocities or redshifts of galaxies and discovered that the universe is expanding. He convincingly proved that our galaxy is only one of countless galaxies and thus paved the way for the exploration of an immense world beyond the limits of our knowledge. The exploding universe proposed by Hubble, now termed the Big Bang, is used to explain the origin of the elements, of stars, and of galaxies. The second part of the book describes the fundamental discoveries on the nature of the universe made subsequently, and thus sets his achievements in context. Hubble's vision, particularly his efforts to help build the big telescope at Mt. Palomar, firmly established the United States as a leader in observational astronomy. Written by two prominent astronomers (Dr. Novikov is the author of Black Holes and the Universe, CUP, 1990) who have built on Hubble's work, this book is a classic of science, setting out the thrilling story of the exploding universe

Black hole physics : basic concepts and new developments by V. P Frolov( Book )

16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume on black holes can be seen as a sequel to Physics of Black Holes, published by Kluwer Academic Publishers in 1989. The authors are recognised experts in their field, and have many years' experience in teaching courses on general relativity and black holes. The present work covers practically all aspects of black hole physics and its astrophysical applications. Among the topics treated in depth are: spacetime of stationary black holes, general theory of black holes, black hole perturbations, black hole numerics, black hole electrodynamics, black holes in unified theories of gravity, quantum black holes, final states of evaporating black holes and the information loss puzzle. Special attention is paid to the role of black holes in astrophysics and observational evidence of black hole existence. Many exotic subjects linked with black holes, such as white holes, wormholes, and time machines are discussed in detail. Numerous appendices cover mathematical aspects of general relativity and black holes and quantum field theory in curved space time. This makes the book practically self-contained. Extensive references provide the reader with a guide to the literature in this field. Audience: This book will be of interest to researchers and postgraduate students whose work involves relativity and gravitation, statistical physics, thermodynamics, active galactic nuclei and stellar physics
Stellar remnants by Steven D Kawaler( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and German and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines the internal structure, origin and evolution of white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes, all objects at the final stage of stellar evolution. It covers topics such as: pulsation of white dwarfs; millisecond pulsars; and the dynamics around black holes. This study is intended for those with a good knowledge of quantum and relatavistic physical processes and astrophysical observation. The book may be used as a companion to a course in stellar astrophysics

One of the most exciting predictions of Einstein's theory of gravitationisthat there may exist 'black holes': putative objects whose gravitational fields are so strong that no physical bodies and signals can break free of their pull and escape. Even though a completely reliable discovery of a black hole has not yet been made, several objects among those scrutinized by astrophysicists will very likely be conformed as black holes. The proof that they do exist, and an analysis of their properties, would have a significance going far beyond astrophysics. Indeed, what is involved is not just the discovery of yet another, even if extremely remarkable, astrophysical object, but a test of the correctness of our understanding the properties of space and time in extremely strong gravitational fields. Theoretical research into the properties of black holes and into the possible corollaries of the hypothesis that they exist, has been carried out with special vigor since the beginning of the 1970s. In addition to those specific features of black holes that are important for the interpretation of their possible astrophysical manifestations, the theory has revealed a nurober of unexpected characteristics of physical interactions involving black holes. By now, a fairly detailed understanding has been achieved of the properties of the black holes, their possible astrophysical manifestations, and the specifics of the various physical processes involved. Furthermore, profound links were found between black-hole theory and such seemingly very distant fields as thermodynamics, information theory, and quantum theory

"Nothing psyches up a physicist quite like a black hole, a star that has died and yielded to the gaping maw of gravity. Listen as Stephen Hawking, aided by 3-D animation, explains the concept of space-time and how black holes are formed. Allow yourself to be drawn to the edge of a black hole -- the event horizon -- and imagine what life would be like inside."--Container
