The universe of general relativity by A. J Kox( )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume from the Einstein Series is based largely on papers presented at the Sixth International Conference on the History of General Relativity, held in Amsterdam on June 26-29, 2002. These contributions from notable experts offer both new and historical insights on gravitation, general relativity, cosmology, unified field theory, and the history of science. Topics€discussed include the prehistory of special relativity, early attempts at a relativistic theory of gravitation, the beginnings of general relativity, the problem of motion in the context of relativity, conservation laws, the axiomatization of relativity, classical and contemporary cosmology, gravitation and electromagnetism, quantum gravity, and relativity as seen through the eyes of the public and renowned relativists. Contributors include: K. Brading; G. Gale; H.F.M. Goenner; J. Goldberg; S. Katzir; D. Kennefick; H. Kragh; C. Lehner; U. Majer; J. Mattingly; E.T. Newman; J.D. Norton; J. Renn; R. Rynasiewicz; J.M. Sánchez-Ron; T. Sauer; C. Smeenk; J. Stachel; M. Wazeck; and D. Wünsch.

No truth except in the details : essays in honor of Martin J. Klein by A. J Kox( Book )

16 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning with a pair of essays dealing with the experimental and mathematical foundations of physics in the work of Henry Cavendish and Joseph Fourier, the volume goes on to consider the two broad areas of investigation that constituted the central foci of the development of the physics discipline in the nineteenth century: electricity and magnetism, including especially the work of Michael Faraday, William Thomson, and James Clerk Maxwell; and thermodynamics and matter theory, including the theoretical work and legacy of Josiah Willard Gibbs, some experimental work relating to thermodynamics and kinetic theory by Heinrich Hertz, and the work of Felix Seyler-Hoppe on hemoglobin in the neighboring field of biophysics/biochemistry. Moving on to the beginning of the twentieth century, a group of three articles on Albert Einstein deal with his early career and various influences on his work. Finally, a set of historiographical issues important for the history of physics are discussed, and the chronological conclusion of the volume is an article on the Solvay Conference of 1933."--BOOK JACKET

The scientific correspondence of H. A. Lorentz by H.A Lorentz( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in English and German and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second and final volume of Dutch physicist Hendrik Antoon Lorentz's scientific correspondence with Dutch colleagues, including Pieter Zeeman and Paul Ehrenfest. These 294 letters cover multiple subjects, ranging from pure mathematics to magneto-optics and wave mechanics. They reveal much about their author, including Lorentz's surprisingly active involvement in experimental matters in the first decades of his career. Letters are also devoted to general relativity, Lorentz's 1908 lecture on radiation theory, and his receipt of the Nobel Prize along with Zeeman in 1902.0The letters are presented in their original language; Dutch originals are accompanied by English translations.0A concise biography of Lorentz is also included

The law of causality and its limits by Philipp Frank( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 1993 in German and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Law of Causality and its Limits (1931) a principal work from the classical period of the Vienna Circle, was written by Philipp Frank, a physicist and philosopher, to clarify the strengths and weaknesses of the notion of causal explanation. The book contains analyses of central issues in the philosophy of science: meaning of general statements, determinism, vitalism, lawfulness in biology and physical science, irreversibility, cause and chance, among others
Physics as a calling, science for society : studies in honour of A.J. Kox( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a token of appreciation for A.J. Kox on his retirement as Pieter Zeeman Professor of History of Science at the University of Amsterdam. The papers, written by close colleagues from the Netherlands and abroad, reflect Kox's own fields of interest: physics and Dutch science in the period 1850-1950. The book focuses especially on the two towering figures of theoretical physics to whom Kox has devoted a large part of his professional life: Hendrik Lorentz and Albert Einstein. A central theme in many of the contributions is the tension that existed in this period between fundamental science and social concerns
The Collected papers of Albert Einstein. correspondence, 1902-1914 by Albert Einstein( Book )

8 editions published between 1987 and 1993 in German and English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, the first in the series to be devoted to Einstein's correspondence, begins in June 1902, when he went to work at the Swiss Patent Office. It closes in March 1914, as Einstein left Switzerland to take up his appointment as a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. The great majority of the more than 500 letters from and to Einstein presented here have not been published before, and some of them will be new even to most Einstein scholars. They give us a much richer picture of Einstein in his twenties and early thirties than we have ever had. We see him through his correspondence with his mother, his wife Mileva, and, from 1912 on, his cousin Elsa, who would later become his second wife. He maintains close ties with old friends, but his circle widens, particularly after 1906, to include a number of his contemporaries in physics such as Max Laue and Paul Ehrenfest. He also develops important relationships with older theorists--Max Planck, Arnold Sommerfeld, and especially H.A. Lorentz. The letters in this volume clarify the development of his academic career once he leaves the Patent Office in 1909, and bring out the important parts played by such staunch supporters of Einstein as Alfred Kleiner, Fritz Haber, and, above all, Walther Nernst. Most significant, however, is the way the letters document crucial aspects of Einstein's scientific activity: his concentration for years on the unfathomable problems of quanta and radiation, his extensive knowledge of experimental physics, his many fruitful interactions with experimentalists, and finally his long struggle to generalize the 1905 theory of relativity to include gravitation and accelerated frames of reference
