We meet farmers, chefs, teachers, scientists, fishermen and ranchers in more than 50 cities across the country who are all providing new solutions to help combat America's growing food challenges. Many of their innovative techniques emulate a return to more traditional -- and sustainable -- methods of farming, fishing, and ranching
TEDTalks : Brian Greene - Is Our Universe the Only Universe?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is there more than one universe? In this visually rich, action-packed TEDTalk, Brian Greene shows how the unanswered questions of physics (starting with a big one: What caused the Big Bang?) have led to the theory that our own universe is just one of many in the multiverse. Greene is perhaps the best-known proponent of superstring theory, the idea that minuscule strands of energy vibrating in a higher dimensional space-time create every particle and force in the universe

L'universo elegante : superstringhe, dimensioni nascoste e la ricerca della teoria ultima by B Greene( Book )

57 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 14 languages and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new edition of the New York Times bestseller?now a three-part Nova special: a fascinating and thought-provoking journey through the mysteries of space, time, and matter. Now with a new preface (not in any other edition) that will review the enormous public reception of the relatively obscure string theory?made possible by this book and an increased number of adherents amongst physicists? The Elegant Universe "sets a standard that will be hard to beat" (New York Times Book Review). Brian Greene, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away the layers of mystery surrounding string theory to reveal a universe that consists of eleven dimensions, where the fabric of space tears and repairs itself, and all matter?from the smallest quarks to the most gargantuan supernovas?is generated by the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of energy. Today physicists and mathematicians throughout the world are feverishly working on one of the most ambitious theories ever proposed: superstring theory. String theory, as it is often called, is the key to the Unified Field Theory that eluded Einstein for more than thirty years. Finally, the century-old antagonism between the large and the small-General Relativity and Quantum Theory-is resolved. String theory proclaims that all of the wondrous happenings in the universe, from the frantic dancing of subatomic quarks to the majestic swirling of heavenly galaxies, are reflections of one grand physical principle and manifestations of one single entity: microscopically tiny vibrating loops of energy, a billionth of a billionth the size of an atom. In this brilliantly articulated and refreshingly clear book, Greene relates the scientific story and the human struggle behind twentieth-century physics' search for a theory of everything. Through the masterful use of metaphor and analogy, The Elegant Universe makes some of the most sophisticated concepts ever contemplated viscerally accessible and thoroughly entertaining, bringing us closer than ever to understanding how the universe works

Les plus récentes avancées de la physique contemporaine mises à la portée de tous par l'un de ses plus jeunes théoriciens. La théorie de la relativité explique l'infiniment grand, la mécanique quantique, l'infiniment petit, toutes deux sont conciliables depuis peu, dans la "théorie des cordes"
The meaning of relativity : including the relativistic theory of the non-symmetric field by Albert Einstein( Book )

5 editions published between 1945 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1921, five years after the appearance of his comprehensive paper on general relativity and twelve years before he left Europe permanently to join the Institute for Advanced Study, Albert Einstein visited Princeton University, where he delivered the Stafford Little Lectures for that year. These four lectures constituted an overview of his then-controversial theory of relativity. Princeton University Press made the lectures available under the title The Meaning of Relativity, the first book by Einstein to be produced by an American publisher.
