The renaissance of general relativity and cosmology : a survey to celebrate the 65th birthday of Dennis Sciama by George F. R Ellis( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past forty years have been a time of spectacular development in the study of general relativity and cosmology. A special role in this has been played by the influential research groups led by Dennis Sciama in Cambridge, Oxford, and Trieste. In April 1992 many of his ex-students and collaborators came to Trieste (where he is currently Professor) for a review meeting to celebrate his 65th birthday. This book consists of written versions of the talks presented which, taken together, comprise an authoritative overview of developments which have taken place during his career to date. The topics covered include fundamental questions in general relativity and cosmology, black holes, active galactic nuclei, galactic structure, dark matter, and large scale structure
A brief history of time by Stephen Hawking( Visual )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Errol Morris (The Fog of War) turns his camera on one of the most fascinating men in the world: the pioneering astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, afflicted by a debilitating motor neuron disease that has left him without a voice or the use of his limbs. An adroitly crafted tale of personal adversity, professional triumph, and cosmological inquiry, Morris's documentary examines the way the collapse of Hawking's body has been accompanied by the untrammeled broadening of his imagination

Einstein's universe( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary produced in 1979 by WGBH and the BBC to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Albert Einstein. Narrated and hosted by Peter Ustinov and written by Nigel Calder, the author of the accompanying book of the same title, the film takes place at the University of Texas' McDonald Observatory where a staff of renowned scientists and physicists take both Ustinov and the viewer through a hands on experience of the various facets of Einstein's theory of general relativity

The big bang : the creation and evolution of the universe by Joseph Silk( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written for the nonspecialist, The Big Bang describes the greatest contemporary puzzles and achievements in astronomy, cosmology, and astrophysics, clearly recounting the history of the universe and examining current controversies from several points of view. The book concludes with self-contained appendix providing the basic mathematical framework for understanding modern cosmology

Supersymmetric quantum cosmology by P. D D'Eath( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This timely volume provides the first comprehensive and coherent introduction to modern quantum cosmology - the study of the universe as a whole according to the laws of quantum mechanics. In particular, it presents a useful survey of the many profound consequences of supersymmetry (supergravity) in quantum cosmology. After a general introduction to quantum cosmology, the reader is led through Hamiltonian supergravity and canonical quantization and quantum amplitudes through to models of supersymmetric mini-superspace and quantum wormholes. The book is rounded off with a look at exciting further developments, including the possible finiteness of supergravity. Ample introductory material is included, ensuring this topical volume is well suited as a graduate text. Researchers in theoretical and mathematical physics, applied maths and cosmology will also find it of immediate interest
Relativistic fluids and magneto-fluids : with applications in astrophysics and plasma physics by Angelo Marcello Anile( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This highly acclaimed series of monographs provides introductory accounts of specialized topics in mathematical physics for graduate students and research workers. The monographs in this series are of outstanding scholarship and written by those at the very frontiers of research. Subject areas covered include cosmology, astrophysics, relativity theory, particle physics, quantum theory, nuclear physics, statistical mechanics, condensed matter physics, plasma physics and the theory of chaos
Functional integrals and collective excitations by V. N Popov( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes the theory and selected applications of one of the most important mathematical tools used in the theoretical investigation of collective excitations in statistical physics, such as occur in superfluidity, superconductivity, plasma dynamics, superradiation, and in phase transitions. The author, who is a distinguished physicist and leading researcher in this area, begins with an introduction to functional integral techniques in equilibrium statistical thermodynamics, and discusses the expression of partition functions and Green functions in terms of functional integrals. Subsequent sections deal with the application of functional integrals in superfluid Bose systems, systems with Coulomb interaction, and superfluid Fermi systems. The final section considers the application of the concept of Bose-condensation of auxiliary fields to the theory of crystals, heavy atoms and also to the theory of model Hamiltonians (BCS and Dicke models)
