Book The Universe in a Nutshell

Download or read book The Universe in a Nutshell written by Stephen W. Hawking and published by . This book was released on 2001 with total page 216 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this brilliant sequel to the phenomenally successful A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME Stephen Hawking unravels the amazing theoretical breakthroughs that have happened during the decade that followed the publication of that bestseller. In an erudite yet accessible style Hawkins guides us through the evolution of Einstein's relativity, the uncertainty principle, quantum mechanics, five string theories, M-theory and the mysterious p-branes that seem to pave the way for that grail of theoretical physics - the big TOE - the Theory of Everything. He conveys the excitement felt at present within the scientific community as he travels with us through an Alice in Wonderland universe of ten dimensions; which might be just one of the many alternative histories, where black holes evaporate, superstrings curl up on themselves and parallel universes contract to nothing. Beautifully illustrated throughout, with original artwork commissioned for this project, THE UNIVERSE IN A NUTSHELL is guaranteed to be the biggest science book of 2001.

Book The Origin Of The Universe

Download or read book The Origin Of The Universe written by John D Barrow and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2014-11-25 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There is no more profound, enduring or fascinating question in all of science than that of how time, space, and matter began. Now John Barrow, who has been at the cutting edge of research in this area and has written extensively about it, guides us on a journey to the beginning of time, into a world of temperatures and densities so high that we cannot recreate them in a laboratory. With new insights, Barrow draws us into the latest speculative theories about the nature of time and the "inflationary universe," explains "wormholes," showing how they bear upon the fact of our own existence, and considers whether there was a "singularity" at the inception of the universe. Here is a treatment so up-to-date and intellectually rich, dealing with ideas and speculation at the farthest frontier of science, that neither novice nor expert will want to miss what Barrow has to say. The Origin of the Universe is "In the Beginning" for beginners -- the latest information from a first-rate scientist and science writer.

Book excerpt: The single biggest and most difficult question that exists? From early religions through Greek Philosophy and Western Science, man has attempted to discover the meaning of the Universe and our place within it. In the last twenty year these debates have all been stood on their head by amazing discoveries, big bang theory and ideas about new sub-atomic layers. The nature of Time and Space are truly up for grabs. With a witty and accessible style Osborne leads us on a historical and informative adventure through the philosophies of the universe; including the importance of telescopes, mathematics and relativity theory and ending with contemporary mind-expanding concepts such as the reversibility of time and parallel universes. 'If it's true that very few of the many thousands who bought Stephen Hawkins' A Brief History of Time actually read it, then Osborne's may be the book to catch up with' - Financial Times 'The perfect introduction for those who would like to understand the vast space that is our universe' - Good Book Guide

Book The Nature of Space and Time

Download or read book The Nature of Space and Time written by Stephen Hawking and published by Princeton University Press. This book was released on 2010-02-08 with total page 160 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From two of the world's great physicists—Stephen Hawking and Nobel laureate Roger Penrose—a lively debate about the nature of space and time Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united into a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined? In The Nature of Space and Time, two of the world’s most famous physicists—Stephen Hawking (A Brief History of Time) and Roger Penrose (The Road to Reality)—debate these questions. The authors outline how their positions have further diverged on a number of key issues, including the spatial geometry of the universe, inflationary versus cyclic theories of the cosmos, and the black-hole information-loss paradox. Though much progress has been made, Hawking and Penrose stress that physicists still have further to go in their quest for a quantum theory of gravity.

Book Creation of the Universe

Download or read book Creation of the Universe written by Srikanth s and published by Srikanth s. This book was released on with total page 235 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Important modern scientific truths lie hidden in the highly colourful and symbolical language of the Vedas. Brahma does not mean the theological object of worship, but, it means ‘atomic state which pervades in 58 digits’. The ancients measured distances not even in astronomical light years that proved inadequate, but, in number of digits. ‘Hiranyaksha’ should not be taken as a demon. It indicates ‘gravitational power of the molten matter inside the earth’. Dhaataa or ‘Brahmaa’ is a star standing at a distance of 39 digits and Sarasvatee is its cosmic energy. The Universe as a whole is contracting. The Earth began to cool 1,000,000,000,000 (1 followed by 12-zeroes) years ago. Universe will go on contracting till it finally collapses in 33 digits of years according to our planet. “Om” is not a mere sound but an actual cosmic state which comes into being, when at the initial stage the three Gunas of Prakriti give rise by their interaction to the four states of matter called the charges, atomic, molecule and particle states, and consequently has dimensions like a concrete substance. Gods are stars with supernatural powers, such as the cosmic rays, attraction, repulsion etc. Shiva and Paarvattee are the names given to the spiritual and material aspects.
