Achille e la tartaruga : il paradosso del moto da Zenone a Einstein by Joseph Mazur( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in Italian and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tre millenni fa Zenone di Elea costruì una serie di paradossi logici per provare l'impossibilità del movimento, mettendo in crisi un modello a cui, ancora oggi, facciamo ricorso per rappresentarci la realtà. Zenone mise in relazione il movimento con lo spazio e il tempo, ponendo una domanda cruciale: il tempo e lo spazio sono continui come una linea ininterrotta oppure risultano dall'accostamento di un insieme di unità? Da Galileo a Einstein, dal piano coordinato di Cartesio all'iperspazio di Calabi, la definizione dell'essenza del movimento ha acceso l'interesse di generazioni di <<filosofi naturali>>, che, con tenacia, hanno provato a colmare il divario tra i loro modelli matematici e la realtà. Joseph Mazur ha ricomposto, con vivaci aneddoti, argomentazioni e dimostrazioni, un rompicapo fra i più antichi della fisica fino agli sviluppi più recenti
The shape of inner space : string theory and the geometry of the universe's hidden dimensions by Shing-Tung Yau( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2019 in Italian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

String theory says we live in a ten-dimensional universe, but that only four are accessible to our everyday senses. According to theorists, the missing six are curled up in bizarre structures known as Calabi-Yau manifolds. Here, Shing-Tung Yau, the man who mathematically proved that these manifolds exist, argues that not only is geometry fundamental to string theory, it is also fundamental to the very nature of our universe. Time and again, where Yau has gone, physics has followed. Now for the first time, readers will follow Yau's penetrating thinking on where we've been, and where mathematics will take us next. A fascinating exploration of a world we are only just beginning to grasp, The Shape of Inner Space will change the way we consider the universe on both its grandest and smallest scales.--From publisher description
