Murray Gell-Mann : selected papers by Murray Gell-Mann( )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Called quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the gauge theory of color. These major publications and many others are collected in this volume, providing physicists with easy access to much of Gell-Mann's work. Some of the articles are concerned with his recollections of the history of elementary particle physics in the third quarter of the twentieth century. --Book Jacket
50 years of quarks by Murray Gell-Mann( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today it is known that the atomic nuclei are composed of smaller constituents, the quarks. A quark is always bound with two other quarks, forming a baryon or with an antiquark, forming a meson. The quark model was first postulated in 1964 by Murray Gell-Mann -- who coined the name "quark" from James Joyce's novel Finnegans Wake -- and by George Zweig, who then worked at CERN. In the present theory of strong interactions -- Quantum Chromodynamics proposed by H Fritzsch and Gell-Mann in 1972 -- the forces that bind the quarks together are due to the exchange of eight gluons. On the 50th anniversary of the quark model, this invaluable volume looks back at the developments and achievements in the elementary particle physics that eventuated from that beautiful model. Written by an international team of distinguished physicists, each of whom have made major developments in the field, the volume provides an essential overview of the present state to the academics and researchers.--

The creation of the universe by Timothy Ferris( Visual )

4 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the ultimate detective story: the creation of the universe. Go on a cosmic ride, from the Big Bang 15 billion years ago, to the frontiers of science today. The program also takes viewers around the world, visiting with today's great thinkers, including physicist Stephen Hawking, and Nobel Prize winners Murray Gell-Mann and Steven Weinberg. From quarks to quasars, the scientists explore a host of provocative ideas
Elementary particles and the universe : essays in honor of Murray Gell-Mann by John H Schwarz( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Murray Gell-Mann is one of the most influential and brilliant scientists of the twentieth century. His work on symmetries, including the invention of the 'quark', in the 1950s and early 1960s has provided a foundation for much of modern particle physics and was recognised by the award of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1969. This book is a collection of research articles especially written by eminent scientists to celebrate Gell-Mann's 60th birthday, in September 1989. The main body of contributions are concerned with theoretical particle physics and its applications to cosmology

Le Quark et le jaguar : voyage au coeur du simple et du complexe by Murray Gell-Mann( Book )

8 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in French and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bien qu'il contienne un certain nombre de souvenirs d'enfance et d'anecdotes, ce livre n'est pas une autobiographie, mais plutôt un essai en quatre parties: Le simple et le complexe - L'univers quantique - Sélection et adaptation - Diversité et durabilité. L'auteur, prix Nobel 1969 pour la théorie des quarks, y fait des incursions dans une multiplicité de domaines où se déploie l'interrelation de la simplicité la plus nue et de la complexité extrême. L'idée qui parcourt l'ensemble de son texte, relativement peu technique, "est celle de l'interaction entre les lois fondamentales de la nature et l'oeuvre du hasard."

Let there be words( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What precisely is language, and how did humans acquire it? In an effort to answer those essential questions, this program journeys back to prehistoric times in search of language's origin. But this is not a passive discussion, as Noam Chomsky; Brown University's Philip Lieberman; Johanna Nichols, of U.C. Berkeley; Stanford University's Merritt Ruhlen; professor of anthropology Richard Klein; Nobel physicist Murray Gell-Mann; and others passionately defend their points of view. Additional topics include distinguishing features of human communication and what humankind's first utterances may have been. The early evolution and migration of humans is also considered
Lectures on weak interactions of strongly interacting particles by Murray Gell-Mann( Book )

Birth and death( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is predicted that within a century more than half of the world's languages will become extinct, but as languages are lost, new ones emerge naturally or are constructed. This program provides insights into the language life cycle through topics ranging from constructed languages such as Esperanto, to language endangerment and preservation, to the role of globalization in language obsolescence
Civilization to colonization( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writing is a relative latecomer to the history of language. This program tracks its emergence in Mesopotamia, China, and Mesoamerica and its spread down through the millennia via conquest -- usually violent, sometimes benign -- and colonization. The creation of creoles and pidgins resulting from the interaction of specific populations is also addressed, and speculation is made about the first things written down
